All purpose wall decor

Yesterday it was my birthday. Man, I had so much fun celebrating! We had a lovely family only lunch and headed to Day of Taco celebrations later on! I mean you can not skip city wide celebration and 5 peso tacos on main square just because you have a birthday. I'd even say it feels like the whole city is celebrating my birthday with cheap tacos, lucha libre, mariachis and smiles. And while it provided me with lots of opportunities to make photos and capture the moment, it wasn't all that well. Crowded place are not ideal to make photos and I actually snapped my own outfit a little bit prior the celebration on a more quite (and quant) street. I personally find it very important to snap a picture or two to capture the moment and keep it with you. While I am personally hyper happy to take photos of my taco right before I eat it (and I literally need a second to me it), my own photography and especially photography with my family is not that fast and happy experience. I think most of parents to younger kids (below 1 you mind me) agree that kids tend to be more responsive and happier to take photos in familiar and quite grounds of home. I will share with you my report on that memorable event later on next week. Today though I want to give you some inspiration (because inspiration during the weekends is the best, right?) and share some tricks on how to achieve better looking photos on your special occasions. For example for a birthday.
If you are (unlike me) celebrating it with friends and family at home, you might want to organize a spot to make a memorable photo. It can be anything and definitely can DIY it with things you already have a at hand. Plants, chair and paintings are wonderful props. Also don't forget about 'happy birthday' strings, silly hats and balloons. Everything is easily accessible and cheap at any dollar store or supermarket. And while it definitely looks cute and is budget friendly I would like to offer you a more advanced option you might want to consider investing in. I am talking about backdrops in general and shimmer walls in particular. SO handy and easy to incorporate in your decor. I do think it is a must have. It doesn't ask for much time, easy to redecorate to achieve a different look, it's expandable and easy to store. Today I want to show you more of it on the example of Iridescent Blue Shimmer Wall. I do believe it is a great option to accommodate each and every need.

This set up looks super pretty and very professional too! They added some light on the floor, neon letters to match the occasion and some balloons of matching colors. Looks fantastic right?

Same backdrop, different occasion. No artificail light (which is great for outdoors), different colors od balloons and there you have it! This shimmer wall looks perfect for Easter! Did I convince you yet? If not check out below

Same wall different mood and purpose. Endless possibilities to utilize and create decorations for your special moments. The only limit if your own fantasy really. The most awesome part is that such a wall is very easy to store. Each part is independent so it literally doesn't ask for space to store. Yes, even if you are living in tiny rental, you can afford investment in such a decor piece, no need for a huge attic here.

Do you own a similar piece? Let me know what you think and point out what I have missed!

Have a nice day,

    These look like fun statement decorations for a big party too, thanks for sharing.

  2. I absolutely love the creativity in your all-purpose wall decor ideas! The way you use everyday items like plates and hats to add a personal touch to a room is inspiring. Your attention to detail is remarkable, and I can't wait to try some of these ideas in my own home!

Dia del Taco

Would you head to the city centre to stay in the queues to eat some cheap taco, listen to mariachis and watch lucha libre for your your birthday? Because that is exactly what I happily did! It was so much fun! I was very tired after but it was So worth it. I do hope to repeat it next year because March 31st is Taco day in Mexico. I do hope to enjoy it even more next time! As it was my birthday I wanted to wear something more flashy and festive. I went with sexy skirt, basic top and my most comfortable shoes. I felt edgy and beautiful. May be a little overdressed but who cares as it was my birthday! Who said 'taco'? I was wearing: H&M skirt (yes, i still kinda shocked they made such a beautiful and well made silky perfection) Doc Marten's Cuidado con el Perro top (I wear this shop a lot, but they seem to be so cute and affordable, I found a lot of joy in buying a top once in a while) Coach bag Necklace gift from my partner long before Fossil watch (last year'

A year of my life 2.0

It's been a year since I have moved to Mexico and honestly it still feels like a dream come to true to me. I am so happy and fulfilled here, it is incredible. I am half-way scared I might jinx it. I do pray I won't. I am also very happy how my adaptation went/goes here. I thought it might be useful to many people who relocate to a very different climate and also different culture (always applies) to share some of my tips. Each of them contributed to my well being here. I feel very local here. After all they joke Mexicans are born wherever they feel like. May be it was meant for me to live here that is why I adapted so well. Anyways, here is my piece of mind: 1 Have your eyes opened. Adapt to new reality. It is not your previous home with benefits, it is completely different. Don't expect it to be like your before-home but better in each and every position. 2 People at your new place and the place itself are not "them", it is called "us" now. Start with

Pool time!

It is finally warm enough for a pool! Can't say I am a water baby but it was very nice for me. And Just look at the super cute Ada Maria in her baby bikini. Awww, my heart melted. I definitely felt like a mom-mom in my one piece swimsuit with ruffles and a huge floppy hat. I mean, isn't it what fancy pool moms looked like when I was little. I am a little shocked to realize.. I am one of them now! P.S. it is not nearly as warm today or yeasterday but I am staying hopeful for hitting the pool or a beach  very soon.
