This is the year for Kylie Cosmetics, she did a great job creating her line, the formula her cosmetics have is really worth the money you will pay. Well done Kylie!

I do not know any man that would not appreciate this gift!!!


I love to have different types of wines at home and why not dressing them up!!. These can be found also at the Dollar Tree for $1!!!


From one Harry Potter fan I have to say that this book is one of J.K. Rowling best books and the movie is by far one of her best!


I’m in love with this!!, how gorgeeee and practical!. This can be found at Crate and Barrel.


Another caddy, lol. I think this is such a great way in presenting beer or drinks and the fact that it has a opener makes it better!


I love anything Kate Spade; her housewares collection are just so elegant and beautiful.


I need one of this for my hubby!. This device can help you locate keys and phones!


Of course I had to add Star Wars, another year for them with their new movie Rogue One. Anything from Star Wars will make an amazing gift to a true fan.


Can you guess what these are?… all these lovely bottles have men boxers inside!!, how creative and great!. I found them at Target.


Of course I will put on my list my darling Nate Berkus. These plates need to be at my house!!.


Arthur George has a super cool selection of socks!, I just love how creative they are and the fact that they have baby socks too!.


Table top games for those who will actually use them are also great gifts.


I have one these purses with phone chargers integrated!. I gave my sister one, I gave my son’s teacher one, should I say more!!, Love theseeeeee, well done Adrienne Vittadini.


I am a dog/cat lover at heart!!!, how cute are these!!!!!

Don’t you just love seeing all the things that are made of cooper!!!. I love my Moscow mule cups!.


Give me cookbooks!, these four are filled with delicious and easy to make.



These are simply just wonderful gifts for children. Brain Quest makes them think, learn and you feel good that among their presents you included an educational one and not an electronic one!


Coffee table books please!!!. These type of books are great conversation starters and look super elegant on you coffee table.





Anything from the Ellen Degeneres collection makes a great gift. Her design vision is beyond wonderful and the fact that she is adding words like as kindness and love is a constant reminder of how we humans should act in this world.


And… personal choice for books this year are these: King Paulo Coelho ‘s The Spy and Queen Oprah’s Food, Health and Happiness.

I hope you liked my list and from the bottom of my heart I want to wish you all a wonderful Christmas and New Years with you loved ones. Enjoy you family, hug them, tell them you love them every day!.








My 2015 Favorite Things Gifts Guide!

Another year is leaving us my Casa lovers and this means Christmas shopping time!. I wanted to share with you my 2015 favorite things list.. just in case you are not done with your shopping, this can help. I hope my list can help you figure out some last minute gifts or your actual list. Love you all, thanks for stopping by.


This is the year of Stars Wars so why not give a present about the most famous movie of the last few years.


I saw these at TJ Maxx and it’s just beautiful, elegant and it will make a fantastic gift.


This is an edible gift. Panettone is an Italian bread that is just yumm. Perfection in a box.


Let’s talk winter!, this fluffy socks and shoes are a great gift for any loved one of yours that lives in a winter state. Also any foot massage kit is always a good idea!.


I loveeee throws, I can’t get enough of them. This is another winter gift.


Coffee lovers that own a Keurig machine will be thrilled to get refills. Marshall’s has tons of these and of course, at a great price.


Another edible gift. If you don’t have time to actually make a gift like this, don’t worry, many stores carry these. Tip: If you decide to give a cookie mix, add a cookie sheet along with mini ice cream scoop for easy pouring. If the mix is a muffin one, add a muffin baking tin. Put them inside a cute basket that you can find at Michael’s and trust me, it will make the recipient very happy!.


Bar utensils are always a hit. Tip: give these items along with a set of two Martini glasses and a few drinks recipes.


Oh yes, I could not leave my darling Nate Berkus out!. These amazing bowls are so exquisite and they will be a wonderful gift.


You can never go wrong when giving a scarf.


I love mugs!!! they always make a great last minute present!


A robe makes the most comfortable gift ever!!!


Get one or more of these but put them in a cute box!


Jewelry holders come in handy at all the times for us ladies!.


Monogrammed coasters will be a good gift for guys and ladies that have a home bar!


These are sooo cuteeeee. Men will make good use of it by storing their toiletries when traveling.


Food lovers like me will appreciate any of these. Tip: give these in a super cute basket. You can do different kinds of baskets depending on what your loved likes.


I saw these at Marshall’s and I thought it was great!. Tea that comes in these cute tubes!!, how cool for a tea lover.


Don’t forget that gift cards are a big help when you don’t know what to give!


Pajamas!!!, in my opinion make a super duper present!


Backpacks are a super needed present for men!. These are from TJ Maxx and are very sturdy, spacious, good quality and great for traveling as well as to hold a laptop.


How adorable and vintage looking are these!!!! I want them all!!


Of course books are on my list!!!. I read a lot and anything from author Mitch Albom is always welcome in my book heart!


Saved the best for last!. I love Ellen Degeneres, I think she has the most amazing heart and when I saw this book I had to have it! Written by her and she shares her love for design and antiques and boy! does she have exquisite taste!

Casa lovers, thanks for the love and support. Have a lovely, happy christmas with your loved ones!!!



My Favorite Things Gift Guide 2014!

I try to give good gifts whenever I can and by good I don’t mean super expensive, but things the receiver will love . I take the other person’s taste and likes very seriously in order to get them a gift they will love. Now, this guide, I think, will help you with the I-don’t-know-what-to-buy-dilemma. These gifts are not only for the holidays but for any occasion. They are winners for sure, and are among my favorite things. Check them all below!


This is a men’s valet tray and it always come in handy because the men in our lives are not as neat as we are and are always looking for their stuff!! and this gift will keep all their stuff in one place.


Pottery Barn has these traveling goodies and it’s a great gift for us girls! It’s practical and of course beautiful.


My lovely Nate Berkus has this amazing!!!!! dinnerware set and I can’t wait to get it for me!. This set has the perfect color combination because you can mix and match this set with every color in the book! and I’m sure it will look gorge!


Philosophy is an amazing skin care line and always smells fantastic. You can buy them at TJ Maxx and Marshall’s for so much less. It’s worth every penny.


I have bought this fragrance for my husband twice and I have to say that this fragrance is beyond exquisite, it smells phenomenal, you will be smelling your loved one all day long!


Everyone that knows me knows I love handbags but once you have kids your priorities change but I think Michael Kors and Diane Von Furstenberg make bags that are here to stay!. These two are beautiful, elegant and timeless. Remember that just because a bag is blue or another color does not mean you have to pair it with the same color shoes or outfit, play with different colors outfits. Mix and match!


I am not a sweets lover but when I do I prefer these. These make great stockings stuffers


This beautiful piece can be found at Target and I have to say that in my opinion it will never go out of style. It can be worn with jeans, leggings, skirts, flats, heels, boots, etc and every time it will look as elegant as we want to look.


You can never go wrong by giving these babies!. The brand is great and the colors are to die for!


Again, my darling Nate Berkus. These dessert plates have great quality and are fantastic, the pattern is just waoooo!!. Remember that your dishes don’t have to match. Mixing them will give your table an interesting, personalized and original look.


A great all-in-one makeup essentials present. You will not go wrong with this, but hurry to Sephora because it’s a limited edition from Urban Decay Cosmetics.


I am a cupcake making lover and these are a great gift for someone that loves to bake.


Glasses always come in handy and when they look as sophisticated and expensive as these (but they are not!), it’s even better. I saw tons of these at HomeGoods and each is $3.99!!


These notepads are a great gift for someone that loves to write and for teachers. These are super cheap at TJ Maxx and Marshall’s.


This book I saw at H&M and I loved it. It’s a collection of the all the designers that have done pieces for H&M and let me tell you, this book will look great on a coffee table with a lovely vase of fresh roses.


Giving a book to someone with the history of the place they live in to me is priceless. Of course giving a book is always a great idea but these type of books have lots of information we probably don’t know about the city we live and just like the H&M designers book, this one also will look great integrated into your home decor. I can’t say it enough, decorate with your own books!


We lovely ladies will appreciate a glass jewelry box as lovely as these ones. These can be found at TJ Maxx, Marshall’s and HomeGoods.


I love anything and everything Cole Haan, so if you see men shoes, handbags, belts, glasses, you name it, buy it!. I have a pair of shoes and they feel like butter, so smooth.


You will never go wrong with a Bulova watch either for a man or for a lovely lady. It’s classic elegance.


Forget which jeans are in season for your boyfriend or hubbie, get Levi’s, and the 501 always look great with a jacket and shoes, with a t-shirt, a polo shirt, a regular shirt, sneakers, flip flops, etc. This jeans will never go out of style. Great material, great look.


I am super picky with the perfumes I get and for this reason, it’s my personal opinion that if you do not know what fragrance to get for your lady, these are a winner. These 3 are the only ones I use.


Yes!!!, shirts!!. I have to say that Mr. Michael Kors has made me loyal on men shirts. These shirts are the only ones my husband wears and trust me!, they feel like butter!!!. The quality is beyond amazing. Macy’s has them for less then $85 a piece but every single time the store has specials, these babies are too!


I love Xo, G wine!!!. This gift is a true favorite on my list. These are 4 shatterproof wine glasses wrapped in one.  They come in Rose, Pinot Grigio, and Pinot Noir and also comes in a mix option. This makes a fantastic gift.


There is nothing more special than a personalized present. These are Pottery Barn frames that can be monogrammed. A few years ago my husband and I went out to dinner with my boss and her husband and they took a picture of us and I of them; I kept the picture, bought this frame, put the photo inside and monogrammed it. They truly loved their present.


One home can never have too many towels and my favorite brand is Hotel Collection. Macy’s has them but I get mine from my darlings TJ Maxx, Marshall’s and HomeGoods.


Bath & Body Works has tons of fragrances but in my opinion these two are just delicious, sophisticated and elegant and they will never fail your scent buds.


The quality that Kate Space New York has is one of the best. Her wallets are great and spacious.


Kipling may be one of my favorite brands ever. This is my actual wallet and it’s so spacious; inside besides the usual I always have: a glasses fixing kit, gum, chaptstick, lip gloss, small mirror, coupons and my S4 that by the way, has a kids proof phone case that it’s huge!. Their backpacks are amazing, love, love them!


…and I saved the best for last. I love to read, I read all the time and I have to say that in my 37 years I have never read anything as beautiful, as rewarding, as AHA moments as this book. This is a must buy, you will not be disappointed with this purchase. I bought it for myself and it has been the best present I’ve given myself.

I hope you like my favorite things list. Remember to give to others with love and to give to those that have less with more love.

Love you!
