Now that Spring is in full swing, what better way to show off your spring fever than to buy a fresh scent fragrance? I personally love anything that is feminine and floral, especially during the Spring time. I needed a new fragrance since I got rid of all my other ones when I moved : (  Luckily, I found a great site that you could easily navigate and find the perfect fragrance that fits your lifestyle.

Shop Affordable Fragrances

I went on to FragranceMarket.us to look for a fragrance that pretty much screamed Spring. This website made it easy for me to find what I was looking for by searching by brands or clicking from various options such as: women, men or beauty cosmetics.

I clicked on the “women” tab and noticed while navigating through the website that fragrances and beauty products sold here are very affordable compared to buying from big retailers. They also have many popular brands to pick from. I clicked “brand” on the left sidebar and clicked a few brands: Gucci, D&G, Michael Kors and Mercedes-Benz. After reading the product descriptions of a few different fragrances from those brands I decided to go with Rose by Mercedes-Benz.

Easy and Fast to Order

My package from Fragrance Market arrived a week after I ordered my fragrance. You can choose different shipping methods, depending on whatever works for you. I am happy with my fragrance, Rose by Mercedes-Benz. It smells fresh and floral with a hint of citrus. Just what I was looking for and perfect for Spring! I loved that it came in a cute little gift bag wrapped with a blue ribbon. It really added a personal touch from the company : )

And guess what? As my readers you get to save $10 off for any orders over $65.00 from Fragrance Market! Score! Just use coupon code “10OFFBEST” when checking out.

What are you favorite fragrance scents for Spring?

DIY Marble Desk

April 18, 2017 in DIY

Happy Tuesday friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend. I spent the day with my little family and we cooked a delicious Easter Dinner with all the fixings! Gosh was it yummy and just what I needed! On today’s post I wanted to share with you all a DIY project I worked on. This is my first DIY project I’m sharing on the blog, so I’m kinda excited right now : )

Staying On A Budget

Since I moved I have been busy trying to make my place feel more like home as well as practical. My fiancé and I have a budget of how much money is going into our home décor. Having a budget is necessary for us in order to meet our financial needs. This means that I have to be a little bit more creative and plan DIY projects in order to emulate the space I desire for my home.

Our apartment came with a little office area. My fiancé and I agreed it would a perfect space where I can be more creative and blog. Before we moved, we weren’t expecting to find an apartment with an office area that included a desk. I was actually planning on buying a white desk. Luckily we found this amazing place that already had one! Which means we saved some money…

However, I wasn’t really feeling the countertop…. I’ve always wanted white marble countertops but obviously that wasn’t in our budget. Plus, i’m not about to invest on a huge ticket price item for my apartment.

Revamping What I already Had

I went onto my computer and searched for white marble vinyl and found tons of links. I decided to get the 6.5 feet by 2 feet vinyl. That was the largest marble vinyl piece that was the most affordable I could find.

However It was not going to cover the entire desk because I needed about 2.5 feet instead of 2 feet. The vinyl was already costing $18, so instead, I figured I would buy white contact paper which cost $5, instead of buying 2 rolls of the vinyl.

I wanted to keep this project as affordable as I could but really give my office area a makeover that was going to make me feel more at home.

DIY Marble Desk

Before I show you the steps we took to achieve my marble desk I wanted to show you a before photo of the desk. This way you can see what a difference the marble made.

Let’s Get Started!

DIY Marble Desk

Materials You Will Need 

Marble vinyl ( here, here, here, here and here), white contact paper (optional), ruler, scissors, masking tape (optional) and razor blades

     DIY Marble Desk

Step 1

We measured out the white contact paper and cut it the correct width of my desk. For my desk we cut it at 5.5 feet long and 8 inches wide

Step 2

We peeled back about 2 inches of contact paper so that we could work in small sections when sticking the contact paper onto the desk.

If you don’t have someone to help you with applying the contact paper, the masking tape will help you with this part.

Step 3

After we had applied the white contact paper to the desk, we laid out the white marble vinyl and adjusted it to see how much we needed to cut. It was a little bent due to it being rolled up, so we used my blow dryer to try and smooth it out.

This part is optional, but it did help us measure out how much of the vinyl we need to cut.

Step 4

After we cut the vinyl we worked in small sections like we did with the contact paper. It took a couple of times to get the vinyl just right on the desk, but we did it! Yay!

If you happen to get contact paper or vinyl on the wall, you can use the razor blades to help remove any extra unwanted pieces.

The Results Were Amazing!

When we were done and stepped back it looked beautifully amazing. The white contact paper didn’t look bad at all with the white marble vinyl. It will probably be covered with picture frames and plants, so it won’t be that noticeable.

I can’t wait to begin decorating my little office and truly making it my space : ) I’m so glad we took this approach to revamp my desk space, now I feel like I can actually focus and let my creative mind run wild.

What do you guys think of my new desk?

Hágalo Usted Mismo Escritorio Ee Mármol

Feliz Martes amigos! Espero que hayan tenido un maravilloso fin de semana de Pascua. Pasé el día con mi pequeña familia y cocinamos una deliciosa cena de Pascua! Era delicioso y justo lo que necesitaba!

Mantenerse En Un Presupuesto

Desde que me he mudado he estado ocupado tratando de hacer que mi lugar se sienta más como mi casa. Mi prometido y yo tenemos un presupuesto de cuánto dinero está entrando en nuestra decoración del hogar. Tener un presupuesto es necesario para nosotros para satisfacer nuestras necesidades financieras. Esto significa que tengo que ser un poco más creativa y planear proyectos con el fin de emular el espacio que deseo para mi casa.

¡Finalmente! Mi Propia Oficina

Nuestro apartamento tenía una pequeña área de oficina. Mi prometido y yo nos acordamos que sería un espacio perfecto donde puedo ser más creativa y trabajar en blogs. Antes de mudarnos, no estábamos esperando encontrar un apartamento con una zona de oficina que incluía un escritorio. En realidad estaba planeando comprar un escritorio blanco. Afortunadamente, encontramos este increíble que ya tenía uno! Lo que significa que ahorramos algo de dinero. Sin embargo, no estaba realmente sintiendo la encimera …. Siempre he querido encimeras de mármol pero obviamente eso no estaba en nuestro presupuesto. Además, no estoy a punto de invertir en un precio de boleto enorme para mi apartamento.

Renovar Lo Que Ya Tenías

Fui a mi computadora y busqué vinilo de mármol y encontré toneladas de enlaces. Decidí conseguir el 6.5ft por 2ft vinilo. Esa fue la pieza de vinilo de mármol más grande que fue la más asequible que pude encontrar. Sin embargo, no iba a cubrir todo el escritorio porque necesitaba unos 2,5 pies en lugar de 2 pies. El vinilo ya cuesta $ 18, así que en su lugar, pensé que compraría papel de contacto blanco que cuesta $ 5. Quería mantener este proyecto tan asequible como pude pero realmente dar a mi área de la oficina un cambio de imagen que iba a hacerme sentir más en casa.

Pasos que tomé para conseguir un escritorio de mármol

Paso 1: Medimos el papel de contacto blanco y cortarlo en el ancho correcto de mi escritorio. Para mi escritorio la cortamos a 5,5 pies de largo y 8 pulgadas de ancho

Paso 2: Nos pelamos hacia atrás alrededor de 2 pulgadas de papel de contacto para que podamos trabajar en pequeñas secciones cuando se pegue el papel de contacto en el escritorio.

¡Ya Casi terminamos!

Paso 3: Después de que habíamos aplicado el papel de contacto blanco a la mesa, pusimos el vinilo de mármol y lo ajustamos para ver cuánto necesitábamos cortar. Estaba un poco doblado debido a que estaba enrollado, así que usamos mi secador de pelo para tratar de suavizarlo.

Paso 4: Después de cortar el vinilo queríamos trabajar en pequeñas secciones como hicimos con el papel de contacto. Se tardó un par de veces para conseguir el vinilo justo en la recepción, pero lo hicimos! ¡Hurra!

Los Resultados

Cuando nos hicieron y dio un paso atrás parecía precioso. El papel de contacto blanco no se veía mal en absoluto con el vinilo de mármol. Probablemente será cubierto con marcos y plantas. No puedo esperar a comenzar a decorar mi pequeña oficina y hacerla verdaderamente mi espacio:) Estoy tan contento de haber tomado este enfoque para renovar mi espacio en el escritorio, ahora siento que realmente puedo concentrarme y dejar que mi mente creativa funcione salvaje.

¿Qué piensan ustedes de mi nuevo escritorio?

Happy Thursday all! I have been going to the gym everyday in order to be healthy and be in great shape, especially for summer! : ) I’ve recently been more aware of my skincare routine and have discovered Hyla3D HA Activating Complex an anti-aging formula launched by Jan Marini Skin Research. Hyla3D restores skin’s hydration by using ingredients such as: Hyaluronic Acid which helps with long-lasting hydration and peptides and antioxidants that improve your collagen. These ingredient act together to give you a refreshed, hydrated and youthful glow.

My thoughts about Hyla3D

The product comes in a pump bottle that made it real easy to retrieve product without wasting it.  The product itself is odorless and thin in consistency. When I applied it to my skin it was quickly absorbed, which I loved because it made my skin feel hydrated and fresh. I love that you can use this product before you apply your regular moisturizer! That way, you don’t have to worry about choosing which product is more important for you to use.

After using Hyla3D for two weeks I have noticed a huge difference in my skin. My skin feels more beautiful and looks smoother and radiant! I’m happy that I have this product to add to my skin care routine so that I maintain a more youthful look.

For further information or to purchase Hyla3D click here to shop online.
