As you can tell this beautiful penthouse is none other than the stunning, creative and amazing Diane von Furstenberg's. Not only do I love her and her beautiful line, but when I came across these images from Architectural Digest, I immediately was smitten with her gorgeous home! Stunning! Dive in and check out more images. Love, love, love.
In our multi-cultural family here at Casa de Góngora, I sometimes struggle with using the correct Spanish grammar when speaking with Charlie and the rest of the family in Colombia. I can hold a pretty good conversation in Spanish, but I am trying to perfect it.
While living in Puerto Rico, Charlie and I became close friends with an amazing couple who were so sweet and a blast to be around! Not only were they such a great duo, but they created a super cool app called SayHi Translate. When they told me about how it could translate multiple languages vocally as well as made an appearance on The TODAY Show On NBC, I was SOLD! I happily purchased the SayHi Translate app and started experimenting with it right away. Let me tell all of you, this app works great! Not only did is translate my conversation smoothly, but it also gave me the written version as well! Pretty sweet, right? You guys have got to check it out! It's affordable ($1.99), convenient and a lot of fun (especially if you are like me and have a multi-cultural family that you are trying to communicate with). This app can come in handy! Or if you just want to learn a new language in general, this app is for you! Enjoy Casa de Góngora friends! I promise you'll love it!
So while browsing the internet, I stumbled on some fantastic items that I have officially fallen in love with! Want this contrasting style? Shop these beauties below! Happy Wednesday lovelies!

I don't know if I am the only that does this, but I am always confused on what I am craving. Sometimes I'll crave a little bit of everything- something sweet, salty, hearty, green, light, heavy, fattening, etc. It's a constant battle that I face, but I think this recipe hits all of the spots listed above. This Hearty Party Salad is the perfect combination of light and filling as well as salty and sweet. I think you all will enjoy this yummy salad. It's a party in your mouth for sure!
It has been freezing here where we live, so I wanted to add a little spicy recipe to the blog that you all will absolutely love. I went to Trader Joe's the other day looking for a recipe that was easy, inexpensive, vegan and super delicious. I spoke with a sales associate and they helped me create a recipe that was delicious. I took their ingredients and added some extra ones to compliment. So friends, are you looking for a little spice in your diet? If so, let's dive right in!!!
Do your feet itch a lot? Mine do. The thought of living in one place has never been appealing to me... However to be practical about establishing ourselves as individuals, we always pick one place and plant our roots, right? I love to travel as much as I can though. Are you a traveling gypsy or do you love the idea of nuzzling up in a cozy city and living there for the rest of your life and vacationing slim to none? When I married Charlie, I told him that I had a plan...by our 50th wedding anniversary we will have traveled to absolutely every country in the world. So we did the calculations and that means we would have to travel to 2-3 countries per year which can be quite a project to tackle, but hey you can't see the world unless you pack up and go, right!?
With traveling comes education, experiences and being aware of what's out there. So explore your inner gypsy friends! Go explore some new and exciting places! Happy Thursday loves!

Okay! Soooo I went out and bought a chocolate mold tray from TJ Maxx and to say I'm excited would be an understatement. Eek! Over the weekend, I dived into the kitchen and have created a bunch of easy peezy truffle flavors. Want to see what I have been up to? Well let's dive right in!!!
From skimming the service of Casa de Góngora, you may think you know us well, on the other hand maybe not. In today's post, I wanted to share with you a little bit more about myself so we can get to know each other better? Sound good?! Let's dive right in!
Queen Artika wishes you all a very happy hump day! Hope it's spectacular!

Okay, there is this crazy trend that has been going on for decades now of dressing like your partner that I am a little stumped about. I see more older couples dressing a like than younger ones. However, my main question is it cute or just weird? What do you think?
Charlie and I have very different styles in fashion. He's sleek and modern with an edge (such an industrial designer type style), and I am (...let's just say) a little bit out there. I like pieces that are not so common. Basically I don't want to be rubbing shoulders with someone that has the exact same blouse as I do. You know what I mean? As a couple, we never (on purpose) match each other. There is the occasional and accidental matching color pallet, but either one of us will go change. I don't think we'll ever be that couple. Well, maybe when we're old and grey we might but as for now we're two different birds flying at the same speed.
Matching your partner...a yes or a no?
