13 Essentials To Create That Certain Ambiance In Your Room

Picture this. You've had a stressful week, and relaxing is the one thing you feel like you need. Coming back to your beloved room, all you ever want is to be at peace. At peace with yourself. At peace with your surroundings. At peace with your mind. At peace with your environment.

At peace.

At ease.

And stress-free.

You never quite know when these stressful, anxious, and gloomy days are going to hit you, so it's important to create a serene and blissful ambiance in your humble abode. One you look forward to coming home to each and every day. Having these thirteen things are not only obvious, but they create a homey, warm, and comforting feeling just when you need it. On days where everything is going your way, you just get to kick back and enjoy it. Take a deep breath. Your room will be your safe haven before long.

1. Blankets.

...Lots of blankets.

2. Fuzzy throw pillows.


3. A carpet or a fuzzy rug.

Keep those toezies warm!

4. A comforter.

OK, obviously everyone has a comforter on their bed, but is it one that makes you want to cuddle up in it?! If you’re like me, you have a particular need for the texture and feel of your comforter.

5. A wax melter.

Not only does the subtle light from it soothe you but so does the smell.

6. White Christmas lights.

It’s all about the lighting.

7. Bluetooth speaker.

Play some piano covers of your favorite songs.

8. A coffee.

But really, anything in a mug. Could be a tea, could be a coffee, could be a hot chocolate. Pick your poison.

9. Window curtains.

Easy to cover up the cloudy days, but perfect for letting the sun shine on beautiful days.

10. A futon or couch.

Be accepting of sharing your ambiance with visitors because believe me, your friends will love the vibe.

11. Candles.

Like the wax melter, these give off a subtle relaxing light. The burning of the flame actually gives off a small but very relaxing sound too.

12. Simplexity.

Have a design, but create it to be simple and organized. It will help soothe you on stressful days.

13. A salt lamp.

Just by having this present in your room, your health will improve and you will feel comfort.

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.
