2022 Goals

Dear January,

You are so cold and yet so beautiful

Thank you for your beauty

I look out my window and see the white snow all around

The sun reaches in our home and hits the walls with radiance and warmth

even if its for a short while I thank you

Branches are dark and shadows start moving as the Sun starts its journey.

In 2022 I would like to write more, create more artwork, make more videos to share.

I would like to get more active, I would like to learn something new like knitting or sewing,

I would like to learn how to drive, I would like to read more books and my goal on Goodreads is set to 25 books for 2022.

Here is a poem from my Poetry Book that is available on Lulu.com have a look if you like.

Flakes Of Magic

The sunlight in the early morning shines across the snowy 

land creating magical light.

My eyes capture the glittery light flakes of magic.

I hold sacred that joyous happy feeling in my heart,

A soulful memory full of love, within, there is gratitude.

-Maria Medeiros



Thank you all for your love and support.

Thank you for commenting, sharing and reaching out to me. Thank you for all your kindness. I appreciate it.

I really enjoy making them on CANVA.

Have a lovely day my friends and see you soon with a new post.



‘Whiskey in a Tea Cup’ by Reese Witherspoon Book & Tote Giveaway! #GIVEAWAY

banner blog pink




I’m very excited to be bringing you this lovely giveaway. Reese Witherspoon is a shining star! She is inspirational and I adore her so much. I love all her films and lately I’ve been loving her book club and her online presence. She is an Academy Award-winning actress, producer and entrepreneur.


Reese Witherspoon invites you to her world with her new book Whiskey in a Teacup.  She shares the joy of southern living and she says:

I hope you’ll see how easy it is for you to bring a little bit of the South to your home, no matter where you live. After all, there’s a Southern side to every place in the world, right?

I’m very lucky to have a advanced copy and I’m excited to share this giveaway with you too. The book is absolutely stunning and filled with lovely recipes and stories about Reese Witherspoon’s life growing up in the South. It has everything I love in this book. It talks about empowerment, strength and family. It talks about the simple pleasures of life, and how taking care of your self is important. It has a little bit of everything from beauty, lifestyle and also great tips for dinner parties. I absolutely love the chapter about monograms. I never really appreciated monograms until this chapter. I really love all the special details in this book. It’s an incredible coffee table book. You really want to display this beauty!


Everything in this book looks very classy and elegant. Reese is so radiant and her personality shines through the pages. Love how she looks in the “Making Special Occasions Special” Chapter. I really love her book and all the photos are breathtaking.


She has a thirst for life and I adore that about her. All the recipes look delicious and are bound to make you hungry. They look super easy to create! I created a few and love them.

I created Dorothea’s Sun Tea on Page 22. A really delicious and refreshing iced tea.


My family really loves the Pecan-Crusted Chicken Skewers recipe on page 24. The chicken  turned out moist and crunchy at the same time. Really delicious.


The frozen fruit salad is out of this world. So simple and refreshing. Really yummy. Frozen fruit salad is on page 28.53

Another delicious recipe is on page 196 and it is Dorothea’s Corn Salad. So easy to make and very delicious.
