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!

Lovely apartment (and kitty!) Yes, you definitely need kitchen space to keep the recipes coming. I rely on your recipes to get me through the low-carb life (and not a binge into a tub of frosting and Cheetos, LOL!)

Thank you, Carmen! I really appreciate the kind words and I couldn’t help but laugh when I read the “binge into a tub of frosting and cheetos.” LOL
Carmen Cruz says
Glad to make you laugh Andres! It’s true though! Being diagnosed pre-diabetic as a young person and told to change decades of I-eat-want-I-feel-like eating was very hard, and your website has been a godsend. Cookies, pasta, peanut butter, chocolate, (yes I used to pour chocolate chips into a jar of peanut butter and eat it with a spoon) ice cream, scones – every yummy thing you think you have to give up, you don’t. 🙂
Andres Regalado says
I’m really glad you’ve found my recipes as useful as you have 🙂 hope you enjoy the many more to come!
You have a lovely apartment and I always say, Home is where the heart is…
I also had to laugh about the binging over the tub of frosting…I cannot buy the Betty Crocker Whipped White Frosting…b/c I’ll end up….yeah, not a good thing!
I found your website on Pinterest and LOVE LOVE LOVE the recipes i’ve tried so far! Right now I’m sipping your Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothie, except I added some Breyers Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream…soo delicious!
PS: I also use the Lavender scent of Fabuloso for cleaning!
Thanks for creating and maintaining this website!
