Happy Monday! We had the best weekend? Did we get to see any potential new homes? No! There is seriously nothing on the market at the moment. I have seen it all. I’m trying not to let it bother me, but it’s been 3 weeks of silence with the new house front and last night I had a mini break down. So, lots of deep breathes today and I think it’s finally time to purchase some essential oils and pretty much cover myself in them from head to toe. But, enough about my housing woes. Let’s talk about all of the weekend activities!
I can’t remember if I have already talked about it here, but Jon started a little side hustle. He is an amazing outdoors man and loves to teach Hudson and Asher all about it. We wanted something a program/club that was a bit different then the traditional scouts that kids could join. Something where both boys and girls could attend and have guided family excursions. This way families could learn about the outdoors together and start exploring on their own. He is going to be offering adventures in fishing, nature walks/planting, crabbing, etc. It’s called, Wild Ones Adventures and we can’t wait to start running adventures. Look out for one in July.
So, due to Wild ones Adventures we have been scouting different locations on Long Island. We found a new location on Saturday and it was beautiful!
It was a beautiful area and the pond had a little family of swans of a ton of little fish! The boys had a blast fishing! Hudson just kept catching them.
After our adventures this momma got to sneak out to Wild Flower Beauty Studio in East Meadow and get my eyelashes lifted and tinted! Danielle’s studio is located in Phenix Salon Suites, which is a super cool building. I had never heard of the concept, but it’s a building where different salons can rent suites. So you walk in and there is eyelashes in one suite, hair color in another, and then nails and massages in others. It’s pretty much a one stop shop for beauty.
Danielle, the owner of the studio is a total sweetheart. She explained all of the steps while she was doing it and was really personable. So, it really just felt like I was chatting with a girlfriend while I was getting it done. An eyelash lift is a way to get longer lashes without having to get eyelash extensions. During the lift they take your natural lashes and a curl to them. They used a shaped shield to define the curl/bump. It’s a faster and cheaper than extensions and it lasts for 2 months. It’s great during the summer because I when you get out of a pool or any water your lashes will already be curled and up. They are practically touching my brows! Also you can apply mascara if you like, which is something you can’t do with extensions.
Guys, I’m obsessed! When I love something I become a professional enthusiast and want everyone to try it out! If you are local to Long Island or even a short train ride away in Manhattan then I would head to see Danielle. It’s $75 for the eyelash lift and tint. You can text her to book an appointment 516-761-1692 and if you mention me, Camila, then you get 10% off. If you get your girlfriend to book with you then you get an additional 10% off!
If you go and get them done you will have to email me photos of your before and afters!
On Sunday we celebrated Father’s day! I hosted at my house, but made things easy by ordering in the food and the cake!
Let’s just say the boys were really excited about the cake!

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.
Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.
On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.
Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]
Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]
For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
