3 time's a charm!

There are many things in life that come in three.

The Holy Trinity; Father, Son & Holy Spirit.

Birth, Life, Death.

Body, Mind, Soul. 

Past, Present, Future

Land, Sea, Sky.

Lithosphere, Atmosphere, Hydrosphere.

Our daily meals; Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.

Three primary colors.

In baseball; 3 strikes and you're out.

And who hasn't heard this?: "Okay ready? On three... 1, 2, 3"

But then also in books, there's the "Three Little Piggies", "Goldilocks and the Three Bears", "The Trilogy of Lord of the Rings",  "The Three Musketeers"... just to name a few.

When it comes to movies or TV, there's; "The Three Stooges", "Three's Company", "The Three Amigos". Also if you decide to call upon the "crazy ghost" of Beetlejuice all you need to do is call his name 3 times.

All in Three... Because three is the "magic number".

But today, 3 means a celebrating of my blog being around for 3 Years in a row!!!

Happy Birthday "Such Life in the Tropics"
It's been some interesting 3 years, some days are filled with inspiration, others not so much. Have met some wonderful people with amazing ideas and willing to share their lives with me, thanks to all those reading and commenting, and sharing my life and silliness via this little window!

So, in order to really celebrate this accomplishment of keeping up with the blog for this long, I am going to do a little giveaway. It's just like a "Three magic wishes" but without the Genie!

Giveaway is open to anybody that meets the required entries, regardless of "geographical location" a.k.a. located anywhere in the world and open until Monday June 17th at 12am EST.

So, you might ask; What's in it for me? As always it will include something handmade by "yours truly" plus an extra something from the island where I live.

These 3 little guys will be part of the giveaway

But, but, but... then comes the best part is for this giveaway (I think), this time there's going to be 3 winners!!! [well, as long as I have at least that many people sign up, LOL!].

Aww-nimal Lover

The way I see it, there's a hole in life that can only be filled with animals!

Did you know the word "animal" comes from the Latin word animalis, meaning "having breath"?

But of course animals go way beyond "having breath". To me animals are all so different in their characteristics, but the same when it comes to being true to their instinct, heart and soul (contrary to humans) and they always live in the now.

Over the weekend we watched a movie called "We bought a Zoo", have you seen it already?

It is a great story of family love, moving forward and of course animals!

And although I don't 100% agree with the Zoo scenarios when it comes to animals being free, I do agree with the fact that in some cases some species are better off in a place where they are secure, feed, getting proper medical care and alive... And if you don't think so, just ask the Rhinos in Africa who are hunted down to extinction every day.

So, if you haven't watched "We bought a Zoo" and you love animals, please do yourself a favor and watch it, hopefully you won't be disappointed.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Paint job

Well, I am no Picasso but you know what they say "a little paint job could go a long way".

My recent project (which was started and completed in one day) was a very simple one.

Thank you to everybody that commented yesterday, unfortunately this wasn't a very artists project, but one that need to be done to get better usage of an area while decorating it a bit differently.

The main focus of my little project was our tiny bathroom, which needed a little character plus more storage area, so when I found the piece of the puzzle that was missing, I knew it was time to proceed with some changes.

This is how our bathroom looked like before the "makeover".

And now, this is how it looks after some much needed "TLC" and of course, paint!

Pretty nice, eh?

That one "piece of the puzzle" is the new cabinet on top of the toilet, big enough to hold everything that didn't have an area before... I simply love it and it was so easy to accomplish, all in one day off!

Happy Tuesday!!!

Caution Wet Paint

It's Monday but today I am home as I trying to make up for extra days I am going to be working as my boss leaves for 3 weeks on vacation very soon.

So, today I am home and working on a little paint project that I have been contemplating for a while, and no, it's not the kitchen cabinets (yet!).

Weekend was good although it looks like my match relationship with Yanique (my men-tee little sister) hast taken a bad turn, I won't really go into details right now, but perhaps I might be getting a different little assigned very soon- not sure how I feel about that entirely!

Anyway, more on my little project tomorrow, with photos for before and after!

Oh, almost forgot, today I am also linking up with Meg and her Mingle Monday, so if you would like to find some new amazing blogs, make sure to visit her... Just click here!

Have a great Monday and beginning of the week!
