Hello Hello, How are my beautiful ladies doing? Bay Area Hot weather is finally here, so we decided it’s time to freshen up our outdoor space. Walmart Home here we go YAY :))))
First things first. We starting with the seating area.
2- The Seating Area
As a rule of thumb, the seating area is the first thing to start with as other things revolve around where you spend most of your outdoor time. I got this seating set shown in the picture last year but here a similar one. I wanted to change things up this year and wanted the space to look like a 5 star resort. I couldn’t be happier when I saw these kids egg chairs on Walmart Home Online and I had to have them. Believe me…. they quickly transformed the space and can do that with yours.
Hello Hello, How are my ladies doing? Are you excited about Summer as much as I am?
My kids LOVE Ice Cream (duh, who doesn’t ?) and they want to have it almost everyday during summer. With all what is going on around us today, the safest way is to make it yourself. Is it hard? Not when Walmart is selling this gorgeous Ice Creamer maker. There are plenty of delicious recipes online to prepare using this gorgeous machine. It comes in 3 different colors and for those who know me, yup…you guessed right: Pink was my favorite choice. Click here to see the product on Walmart’s site.
To add to my joy, my kids were amazed when they saw “mommy” making Ice Cream. They now called me the “Ice Cream Queen.” I love my kids :D. Thank you Walmart for allowing me to become a Royalty. So what are you waiting for? Go get your own title NOW especially that Walmart ships super fast and I got this item 2 days after I placed the order.
To add to the perfection, I picked up this gorgeous set of Black White Gold Polka dot bowls and I ordered along the Ice cream maker. The bowls are big and are well made with a great and safe material. I couldn’t believe their price !!!!!! Check it out for yourself. They do come in 4 different colors and patterns and trust me they are all stunning, I need to buy more of them soon.
Let me share with you what else I got from Walmart and you will not believe the prices !!!! ( I will link all at the end of this post)
My most asked question on IG is this coffee machine and now this color is in stock
And how gorgeous is this Acacia wood cutting board
So don’t wait too long and get all these beautiful pieces from Walmart. Here are the links
Black Friday on premier designers brands is on and they are up to 40% off. If you like something to think twice all the bags will be sold out pretty soon. I just ordered two and I will think about which one to keep when they arrive home. Enjoy Shopping
My son told me the other day: ” Mom I’ve never seen snow, ” in a very sad voice, and I realized yeah he is right! I remember the last winter when we went to Lake Tahoe, I told my husband: “This is the last time we will go to Lake Tahoe when it’s snowing.” It was freezing and I got so sick.
But my son’s sad voice stayed in my head and I said okay Rasha, let’s go show this little guy some snow lol. And I’m so glad we did because the kids had so much fun.
Well after a long break, like really long this time almost 5 months, I’m back to blogland with a little surprise
Yup, we are pregnant and it wasn’t that easy for the past 5 months 🙂 It is my first pregnancy so I didn’t know that morning sickness is the worst, they should call it “all day sickness” :). But thanks God I’m feeling so much better now so that is why I’m back to blogging …For the past 5 months, I didn’t check my blog, I didn’t even read any of my favorite design blogs, the only thing I googled was: how to get rid of heartburn, severe pain in my chest, how to stop morning sickness 😀
So stay tuned I have a lot of posts coming soon and I’m hoping you will like them.I really miss you and miss your comment guys 🙂
Hello all. Before I announce the name of the winner of the $30 gift card from Fashion to Figure, I want to share with you some picture of the Filoli Gardens in The Bay Area.
My friend was visiting from Lebanon so my husband gave me the idea of showing her Filoli. Before I share with you my favorite pictures that I’ve taken during the trip, I want to give a brief introduction about these beautiful gardens.
“Located 30 miles south of San Francisco, Filoli is an historic site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation and one of the finest remaining country estates of the early 20th century. Whether enjoying its beauty or pursuing its educational opportunities, we invite you to explore this cherished community resource.” (Source: http://www.filoli.org/)
Here are the pictures. Oh, BTW the winners name is announced at the bottom. Well, I guess you have to scroll down all my photos :p

I am proud today to have Taryn from Design Dining & Diapers to be my featured guest post. As you can tell by her blog’s name that Taryn is not only a wonderful designer but a super mom as well. Please take a minute to visit her remarkable blog and read about the amazing designs she did for Baby E ‘s first birthday party.
Hello! I’m Taryn from Design, Dining + Diapers and I’m so honored to be visiting Champagne Taste today!! I live in the Pacific Northwest with my husband, 12 month old baby girl and our spunky Golden Retriever. When I’m not busy being a mom or part-time PR/Marketing freelancer, you can find me blogging about DIY home decor, crafts, sewing projects, and allergy friendly foods!
Like Rasha, I’m always trying to achieve ‘Champagne Taste’ on a ‘Beer Budget’. I go out of my way to complete a project for a little as possible! It’s one big challenge to me and there is nothing I love more than a challenge and throw a little bit of creativity in the mix and I’m in heaven.
Today, I’m sharing a few projects I’ve completed for pennies, if not less! Hopefully this will inspire you to check out your local thrift stores, dollar stores and discover new possibilities with items already in your home.
First up are these worn chairs I purchased at the Goodwill for…$1.30! Can you believe it? After a few coats of paint and new upholstery, they look good as new! (Click here for the full tutorial)
Next up is this tea-stained coffee filter wreath I made for my daughter’s 1st birthday party. The whole wreath only cost me $4.99! The wreath was $2.99 at Hobby Lobby, I purchased a pack of 130 coffee filters and the ribbon at the dollar store and used tea and jewels I already owned. (Click here for the full tutorial)
And for those of you who have large button collections, here is one for you! I inherited a huge button collection from my great-grandma (and grandma who doesn’t sew any more). The buttons are just gorgeous and I wanted to find a way to display them in my home. I picked up a pack of magnets and made these decorative button magnets for our fridge!
