About Monica:

Monica Benavidez

Monica has been blogging at Monica Wants It since April 2009 when she started blogging about all the things she wanted to buy after her May 2009 wedding (hence the name).

Eventually Monica wanted a house, and this blog transformed into a chronicle of things she wanted to DIY, renovate, and decorate. She's been featured in Better Homes & Gardens, Domino, Oprah Magazine, Women's Day, Fitness, Elle Decor, House Beautiful, Real Simple, and many other leading publications.
