Today’s home tour and 3 household essentials post is on behalf of #CollectiveBias and the #MiFabuloso campaign, but all views expressed here are mine.
The dinning room (and cat).
The living room.
A few months ago I moved into this brand new apartment, I took a lot of things into consideration. For example, the proximity to my day job (close). The neighborhood (perfect). The amenities (tons). I love the area and amenities but I was hoping to buy, not get into another lease. Thanks to my laundry list of buying essentials I just couldn’t find the perfect place (for me).
I haven’t stopped my search. I’m still keeping my eyes open for something in the area hopefully with a decent size kitchen considering how many low carb recipes I whip up. I don’t mind a little fixing but I don’t have the patience for a “fixer upper,” if that makes sense? I’m not fit for any HGTV style renovation. If I happen to find the needle in the haystack, I’ll make sure to let you all know.
Now for my 3 ever so important and ground breaking household essentials.
- Flowers – Beyond being beautiful and fragrant, flowers deliver a health-promoting array of benefits. Keeping a bouquet of flowers can actually boost your mod, double as decor, stimulate creativity, and create a welcoming atmosphere for you and guests.
- Keurig – Once you experience the luxury of quick one-cup coffee, you won’t be able to stop. Sure you can’t make a enough for the whole family, but it’s totally worth being a little selfish. One thing I recently found out is that you can do much more than just coffee with your Keurig like refreshing flavored iced tea.
- Fabuloso – As a kid, I was known as the messy klutz. I was only good at two things, un-organizing and breaking things. My mom banned me from cleaning up the house for her own sanity. This should be shocking considering how much Spanish (and I’m sure other) families emphasize everyone putting in a helping hand.I finally picked up the cleaning skills once I was old enough to make choices on whether to clean up or not have friends over. There were always bonuses when I would venture outside my cave and help around the house with things like cleaning the counters, floors and occasional crayon marks off the walls. The only demand my mom gave in terms of cleaning techniques was to use the “purple” Fabuloso. Needless to say that years later I’m still using and in love with Fabuloso (lavender, please).
I pick up my Fabuloso when I’m doing errands at Walmart, they literally have everything there!
