    Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Printable

    Two years ago believe it or not was the first time I watched Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, I fell in love and thought that it could be a nice tradition to watch it every year for thanksgiving. Thanksgiving we usually celebrate it at home, we cook together some yummy food like this Pumpkin Mousse Pie with Pecan crust and of course turkey.   Last year we added Charlie Brown to our celebration. We had coloring pages and watched the movie while snuggling in the couch eating popcorn, pretzels and jelly beans 🙂 We made pilgrim hats and I design some bottle wrappers and straw flags for the drinks.     Download here…

    Grove Collaborative Review

    I have been purchasing from Grove co, since April, to be total honest my plan was getting some safe and non toxic products and get the free gift set they offer to new costumer and after that cancel my subscription.  Well, 5 months later I’m still using Grove and loving it more each time I used it. And I say each time because you don’t have to purchase every month to keep your account.

    Lavender garden in Guatemala

    Jardines De Provenza Jardines de Provenza is a lavender garden in Guatemala, located in San Mateo Milpas Altas. For a long time I wanted to visit a lavender field. When I discovered that just a couple of minutes from Antigua Guatemala was a garden with lavender with a volcano in the background, I immediately added it to my summer vacations wish list. Is it worth it? I’m going to be honest, I thought that it was a huge lavender field, and it’s more like a garden with lots of lavender.  It’s beautiful because of the location, the volcano on the background and the aroma makes it so worthy! Would I…

    Tres Leches Cake recipe

    This is the best homemade Tres leches cake recipe. It has been the favorite to celebrate birthdays in my family for years, my mom bakes tres leches for everyone’s birthday and we all look forward to it. It’s no surprise that the tradition continues with my own family. My mom tops the cake with French meringue, wich it’s totally dreamy, but it really is too cloying. So I made a variation and I topped the cake with whipping cream. Mi oldest son always asks for tres leches for his birthday, and it has been so challenging for me! (Because if you know me, you know how much I love decorating cakes…
