Seasonal Favorites


The creative bug came to visit me last night when I couldn't sleep. I got back from the gym and I usually am very tired afterwards, but this time I just could not sleep! (maybe it was because I stopped at xbux before coming home..whoops!) So I got up and decided to do this little mini blog about some of my favorite things for this season. Here are my 11 favorite things! for this cold season! 

1. Starbucks' Chai Tea Latte, Grande (I never, ever order Venti even in my peak of crave, I just know I'll never finish it)
This stuff is so good I can name my non-existent child, "Chai"

2. Polka Dot Sweater - I got this sweater last year at one of those stores at the mall that you'll never know its name. But, you can find a similar Polka Dot Sweater at Forever 21

3. iPhone5 Doodles of People Case - I got this case at Nordstrom, and I immediately became very intrigued by the art on this case.  I couldn't find the exact same one online, but I found a website that sells similar patterns Society Six - Doodle iPhone Case

4. Ray Ban Optics -These I just wear on my face everyday so, it had to be a favorite!  Ray Ban Optics

5. The Hat - I would wear it everyday if I could, but we know that's not possible. I got it at Target and it has been featured before.

6. Glovettes - On my trip to Chicago, I did not bring gloves with me. First, because I did not own a pair. So I got these there, again, from a store I do not know the name of. But find similar ones at ModCloth Glovettes

7. Crochet Braided Headband - I also got it at Chi-Town at an HM - they don't display their scarves or headbands on their website but be sure they'll have it, I promise you! Also, I found this girl who sells all kind for very cheap! Here: Crochet Headbands

8. Burberry Watch - This was a Christmas gift from +Bequer Montenegro last year :) and I have worn it every single day since then. You can find it at any Burberry store if you want it.

9. Marc Jacobs - Lola Perfume. My current favorite scent. I got me a rollerball just to test it; I loved it so maybe I'll gift me a whole 3.4oz! Marc Jacobs Lola

10. Wedged Boots - Confession, I buy a pair of boots every winter. Cheap boots, that is.  This is the thing, once they go on, they don't come off until I welcome Spring, no joke. So, needless to say, I use the heck out of them and retire them afterwards. These I got at Forever 21

Lastly…

11. Crossbody Handbag - This has been featured in another post also. It is just the perfect size, perfect color and style. It also fits all of my stuff. Check it out: Crossbody Handbag - Target

This concludes my Season Favorites! 

Yay!

Wind In The City

Untitled

Oh Chicago! We loved your; colorful trees, tall buildings, city noise, art museums, naturally beautiful parks, city lights, landmarks, Gino's Pizza, mouthwatering hotdogs, loud music, pedestrians who do no respect traffic lights, crazy taxi drivers, lots of traffic in general, beautiful homes, diversity, universities and colleges in every corner, Starbucks in every corner, shiny bean, horrible customer service, city zoo, overpriced parking, overpriced everything, overpopulation of young adults, Frank Lloyd Wright history, fast paced life, cold wind, sunsets at what seemed to be at 3:00PM every day, lack of sunshine, bodies of water in the middle of the city, breathtaking skyline, coats and scarves, public transportation, hail, rain, fog, and every other form of falling water including light snow…well, everything. 
You were good to us Chi-town, you were good!

Honey Bunny


This day came way fast! My sister Maribel just told us she was pregnant and then all of a sudden here we are three weeks away from meeting pretty face Addison! I can't wrap my head around that. 


On October 19th we celebrated baby Addison's baby shower, themed Honey Bunny; hence all the bunnies. Let me just say that my sister was the genius behind this theme because SHE is the one with the creative mind - yes it's her. Also, I must say that 90% of this shower was made from scratch, because that's how we Montijo girls roll! Those stuffed bunnies you will see if you keep scrolling, SHE MADE from scratch! How super amazing is that? She didn't just make 1 but like 7 or so. They decorated the tables beautifully. Also, part of the center pieces was a vase filled carrots with the stem attached which served as an extra touch. 

Made from scratch: From the bunnies sewn to each other, to the dots on the wooden utensils and the bunny stamped cookie pouches. Finally, what kind of a Honey Bunny inspired baby shower would this have been if there was no carrot cake? So yes, there was carrot cake, which too had to be made from scratch and I am very proud of myself as it was delish! I will post the recipe and instructions on my next blog! Yay! 

Note to Addison: We love you, please be born on November 11th. Thanks. 





Addison, you have a beautiful face! Look at you!
