As many of you know, we moved into a new house about a month ago and I've been having tons of fun decorating and simply making this house OUR home.
Well it couldn't come at a better time! I am so happy to be in our new place for the holidays. And I've been decorating every room in our house to make it festive and feel warm and sweet this holiday season. From the porch to the dining room to the kids' playroom and of course my new office! Even though it's still a work in progress, I wanted to give it a little holiday magic. I love this time of year. And I love mixing my Latin culture with my American traditions and sharing those with my kids.
Growing up in Ecuador, we didn't celebrate Thanksgiving for example, but we've made the American tradition our own and get together with our families, give thanks and prepare a delicious feast every year. The holidays just make you feel jolly and bright no matter what nationality you are.
And nothing makes any room warmer and more cozy than a holiday candle and scent.
Which is why I am so happy to share that I've partnered with Orgullosa to share my tips on how to decorate your space this holiday season. I love making my home feel festive and cozy all year round but especially during this time of the year. I remember our Navidades in Guayaquil... you know how there are scents that can transport you right into a certain moment in time? That's exactly what my Jolly Pine candle does for me, it takes me right back to Guayaquil when I was 6 years old... that amazing smell of pine trees from our arbolito... there's nothing like my childhood and those memories. Which is why I strive in making our home a true memory for my family and I.
Something as simple as spraying my Jolly Pine Febreze air freshener or lighting my candle that can truly bring back memories I love and cherish, and I love that I am able to do that now for my family. These little things make for the perfect holiday memories in our home. And at the same time, it's the perfect way to deck the halls in my office and eliminate odors... total win-win in my book!
