About Me

Hi Everyone!

I am a Latina mom of two from Southern California that loves to about organizing, dining, travel, crafts, entertaining and local events.

I have a degree in finance and background in productivity. I decided to start a blog as a way to share organizing and productivity tips for busy parents. But life is not just about rushing through tasks, it’s about making the most of your time and striving to live a balanced life.

The blog has evolved to include some of my other passions because I wanted to share more than just productivity and organizing tips. Now I share travel observations and tips, recipes and dining experiences, entertaining and craft ideas and my not so secret obsession, dollar store finds. That’s where my tagline “Staying organized on my island of life” was born.

I am so happy you stopped by today and hope you visit often.

Some of my readers favorite posts on DIY and organization are these (click on the photo to go to the post).
