Bathroom Renovation - Floor-Level Shower Install

August 13, 2018
Hexagon white with dot black ceramic tile installed over thinset.

Hi there!

I'm finally back with another installment of this bathroom renovation. Oh, I feel so bad when I'm not able to keep up with at least one story per week here on the blog. The thing is, either I work on the pictures and write the post OR I continue working on the bathroom to try and finish it quickly.

Well, the later is winning lately, most of the time I end the day with no energy to sit down and put together these posts. The good news: there's lots of progress, but of course it's taking me forever to bring it to you, unless you follow me on Instagram where I usually post little videos and pictures of the progress.

So, let's get on with this, the installation of the floor - All hired-out work →

The Master Bathroom Lighting Plan

August 01, 2018

Ha, Summer hit hard around these parts!

I'm so sorry I've been so MIA lately. I went to San Francisco last week. It was like a mini vacation where I got to hang out with my sister and her family.  It was our very first time visiting the West coast and we really enjoyed the nice weather and well, pretty much everything about this beautiful city.

Now that I'm back home I'm getting all the bath makeover pictures organized and hopefully I'm going to start sharing with you all the progress because it's almost done!

Bathroom Renovation - Fixing Trouble Areas

July 17, 2018

Hi there,

It seems like this renovation is taking forever, but if you follow me on Instagram you probably know things are a bit ahead of what you're going to see in this post.

I took a whole week off from social media and blogging to dedicate that time to working on this project and to spend some time with my little niece, Maria, who is visiting.
It seems like I'm going back in time to when my daughter was 10! Priceless moments! 💕

Anyways, my previous post about this renovation ended

a powerful little cleaning tool

Hey there!

Is cleaning your household one of your least favorite chores?

Well, I'm right there with ya.  😒

I don't know when it happened. But, cleaning my house has turned into such an unbearable task. I remember many years ago when every Monday I turned into Cinderella mode and made every single square inch of my house sparkle!

Ha, you read it right... Maaany years ago.


Nowadays I have no time, or energy to dedicate an entire day to cleaning my house. And of course, it shows.

The trick that works for me lately is the one-hour cleaning routine. Every day I try to dedicate one hour to an specific area or room. I don't end up with a spotless home, but I make progress.

And since last month, that progress has been even more noticeable thanks to this little tool:

Hi friends,

It's been a long time without a report on the progress of the bath. It's coming along nicely, but I haven't had the time to get pictures out of my phone. Ha, I haven't even had the time to sit at my computer to work on anything!

Anyways, I'm so happy to be working here in this bath while learning a whole bunch of stuff!
