Sharing the Valentine’s Day Love!

Will you be my Valentine

{Win one of these The Architect of Style illustrations — it’s easy, too!}

The Architect of Style



With Valentine’s Day upon us, fellow Miami blog-girl Gissi Jimenez of The Architect of Style was kind enough to reach out to this freak and offer you psychos one of her AMAZING  11″x14″ illustrations. Pictured above, these feminine and whimsical drawings are created by Gissi — who happens to be an architect by trade and personal style blogger/illustrator on the side. Now, she’s selling her illustrations online here. Brilliant, I know. I love a woman who hustles.

From a personal standpoint, I always enjoy seeing Gissi at events because she’s extremely warm, intelligent (you should see the homes she designs!) and professional. There’s a gentleness to her, too, which I truly admire.

Which brings me to our GIVEAWAY! If you want to spruce up your living room, home office, cubicle, grandma’s house — whatever! — with one of these sweet illustrations (you get to pick the print) simply leave a comment below answering the following cheesy-yet-insightful Miss America-esque pageant interview question:


What makes you a star?


*Winner will be randomly selected and notified by Feb. 28. Good luck!

Hello Maria!!:) Lovee your blog…I think what makes you a star is not necessarily the fame, or success. I think is inside of you, it has to do with the kind of person you are. If you have love to give, if you are a good person, if you are happy, if you have respect for others, I think that’s what makes you a star:) Xo

what makes ME a star? I have become a mother a couple months ago…and yet I still manage to keep up the house, find new recipes and make my husband and I a home cooked meal every night, while not only working full time, but also running my own business. I never thought it was possible, but when you do it with love and from the heart, you are truly capable of so much. That’s why I feel like a star….did I mention my husband thinks so too?? 😉

Knowing you has made me a rock star, a blogger and a social media icon in my home town. That and a genuine willingness to help people learn and grow….did I win?

Serious pageant question giiiirl… pero I love it! I am a star because I am vibrant, intelligent, and independent… and a GIRL! BOOM.

Everyone is a star. It’s up to us to choose to shine bright. For me, my energy comes from positive thinking and surroundings. I am grateful and humbled to surround myself with people with healthy souls and who love me and genuinely let me be me. Negativity totally faints a star. So love and respect yourself = stardom

I just moved to Miami from new york. a little afraid but dedicated to work hard and strive for not only excellence but happiness. it’s only been a couple weeks here but I’m legit happy. I’m working, enjoying the view from my new apt, living life but missing some art. so I hope I win 🙂 xoxo

I am a star because I believe that there’s a chance to shine every day…sometimes big, other times small…sometimes it’s me, others it’s my opportunity to help another shine bright. No matter what life throws at me, I can keep dazzling, giving, looking forward and making a difference. Fabulous shoes and a happy smile don’t hurt either!
