Here’s hoping you had a fabulous weekend with your people. We slept in ridiculously late, ate brunch, rode motorcycles on twisty roads, spent hours floating in a mountain lake and then ate pizza while watching a storm roll through 👌🏽 Absolute perfection ✨ What was the highlight of your weekend?
Do you like City Guides? Or do you prefer to explore on your own? Personally I love a good guide. I especially like one that provides the newest and hottest places to eat, shop and see. San Miguel de Allende has been a destination for fashion, design and gastronomy for some time but now new places pop up every month! It is hard to keep track. When you come to San Miguel de Allende, you can pick up one of these magazine and pocket guides at most stores. For me these are the best guides for seeing what is new and notable in the city.
L O C A L is a free city map published monthly. It has a great legend and key to let you know where you are and what you are searching for. Every month they highlight the best of the best making it easy to navigate the city in style. They also have fun facts and colloquialisms that keep you feeling like a L O C A L.
THIS Travel and Style Magazine is full of articles showcasing new restaurants and shops. It never fails that I find a place I haven’t been to and I basically want to jump into the pages of the magazine. They are trend forecasters in the design and culinary scene.
CASA MIA is exactly as the tag line reads, The Art of Living in San Miguel de Allende! As a Realtor I love previewing properties for my clients while I am here. San Miguel is the kind of place that when you go home from visiting, you start plotting your return and possible relocation to. With the army of realtors here and the amount of luxury properties available, it has never been easier to own a home in Mexico. Casa Mia Magazine highlights beautiful properties for sale at different price points and in different parts of the city.
#thesanmiguelbook is a fun guide utilizing social media to advertise the best of the city. It is sectioned by hashtags and you can see the city through the tantalizing images. Their book is a pause in digital time and as they say ‘PRINT IS NOT DEAD’.
There are great local places that you can find by traversing the small quaint city on your own. Let your feet be your guide. MY favorite places to eat, shop and see coming soon! #sanmigueldeallende

Did you see my last post? If you place an order today before midnight I will throw in one of these scrappy banners! You can string it across a window or tack it to the wall. I am so so grateful for the orders I have received today. Thank you for wanting to support me in reaching my goal. I've been feeling warm fuzzies all day from the very sweet, encouraging comments that I have been receiving from you. 💕💕💕
I should add that my shop will be closing tonight at midnight until August 1st. 🌻
✨ It’s been CRAZY over here, it’s why we haven’t been on Insta lately. But we are wrapping up our latest #sonomamidcentury project and we will have SO much to show y’all! 🙌🏼👏🏼 Things are looking fresh and the house is almost ready, just those final touches 💅🏼 What we honestly need is a vacation, so today we are day dreaming about our honeymoon 😌💭 @hotelsancristobal
Just changed out our bedroom pillows for this pair of KETUT / White 22” and the whole space feels so much more serene! Isn’t it amazing how a few small design decisions can really bring a space together and change the vibe? If you’d like a pair of pillows from any of our fabrics, DM me for a custom quote #carolinececiltextiles
Our rug wall is full of secrets (and we’re about to spill ‘em! 🤪)...#1 we have 3 new one-of-a-kind Kilim rugs that just hit the online shop! #2 you see that gorgeous Moroccan carpet on the left? Yea, the first batch is here and we’re ECSTATIC! They’re not online yet, but you’ll be the first to know when they are! #3 we love LOVE helping clients find the perfect rug for their space, so if you need some direction or suggestions, we just might have a special piece in our back pocket for ya! Just send us an email or DM!
Paris in October is one of my favorite memories. Walking to @lamaroquinerie to see the lovely @amberrun and then unexpectedly discovering & falling in love with the talented band @__flyte__ with my husband was such a highlight from our honeymoon. I really hope we can go back to this quaint venue that has the most amazing line up of musicians one day.
There is definitely a roller coaster pattern to living a creative life, at least for me. •Sometimes I'm bursting with ideas and churning out work, sometimes I can't force my hands to make anything.
•Sometimes I'm given beautiful opportunities and sometimes they can feel more like stressful chores. •Sometimes I stop thinking all together and make something new and fun that I love, sometimes it turns out really weird and I pull it apart later.
•Sometimes I want to share every detail and show the world what I'm working on and sometimes I just get tired of talking about it.
In the real world, I can't even ride a roller coaster - they shake my brain up (vertigo anyone?!) and I'm usually the one that holds all the coats and bags while everyone else rides the ride. But this life one, I think I'm going to keep riding it out and see what happens. Maybe make my own track with a little more balance - and definitely none of that upside down stuff!
Do you have a trick to finding balance in your work/life? Setting aside time specifically for you or family or work? Anyone else on the roller coaster?
