So excited to have been a guest on The Dr Jason Show! Even though this is my husband, I had so much fun being interviewed by him to explain the benefits that an energizing home can have on your health and wellbeing. Watch and enjoy the program!Read More
Can you believe it? It’s already time to go back to school. I know some of you may be thinking, wait a minute, we’ve still got a few weeks left; then others of you are saying, I’ve already started. No matter where your schedule sits, you’re in it—the season of school prep. Well I’ve shifted into the swing of things as my daughter is in a Pre-K program, which is basically just like regular school.Read More
Have you ever felt overcome by the simple object called paper? Ever looked around and saw tons of it piled high? Whether it is newspapers, unopened mail, paid and unpaid bills—paper can truly become a nuisance in your home that you wish would pick itself up and go away; except if you find money. Ah yes, the question – what’s in that mail and what is hiding in those piles that require action or could add to your income?Read More
Everywhere I look I see Color, Color, Color! It’s so fabulous because color adds life to an empty space. It provides new light and hope when it may look dim and gray. Color makes the imagination go wild with ideas and thoughts you’d never pursue in a dull environment. Have you ever thought about how you naturally smile when you take in an environment that is colorful and inviting? What I love about my home are the loads of color everywhere! I had the awesome opportunity to witness my designer, Stacia Pierce, infuse color like a passion that calls and motivates me day after day. That’s why I love her tool, The Success Journal! By writing and scripting in such a beautiful eye popping journal, I can always keep myself excited about life!Read More
We’re a month into 2017 and now is a great time to have a personal check-up with your goals. Rather than make a healthy list and only review it once per year, go back over your goals and make adjustments to really end the year on top. One of my areas of focus lately has been to bring more order and clear the clutter.Read More
It’s a New Year, which automatically means thinking about changes to make, goals to create and methods to have a better life. The care and keep of your home is one of the top environmental triggers to either keep you on track with your goals or pull you away from them due to distractions. Keep in mind, “care and keep of your home” doesn’t just mean the sofa, table and love seat décor; it also means checking off—do you get along with your family, is there always strife and arguments filling the air, or when you open every drawer is there disorder, disarray or just a smell that makes you turn your head to the left and say, I’ll get to that later.Read More
Say this phrase with me: “I will plan and be organized this holiday season!" Trust me, I know this maybe a difficult phrase to say out loud, but it can be true if you take advantage of your time Right Now. This is a perfect time to simply begin making lists, writing down possible gifts, and doing research to maximize your gift giving. That’s why I created the gift giving planner. Traditionally it’s used to plan gifts for loved ones and friends throughout the year for events like birthdays or anniversaries; however, you can now download the holiday version to easily plan your shopping more effectively.Read More
Believe it or not, the holidays are right around the corner and while you may not be ready for this, right now is a great time to start getting prepared. One of the best preparation techniques is to purge, purge, purge then Get Organized! If you have children, even they can get involved in this fun task by helping to fold, sort or just count the items you’re purging. Whether you simply store these items away for another season, give them away to a friend or non-profit, or even throw them away—its always fun for family to get in on the act.Read More
I absolutely love this time of year. The brisk morning air, beautiful colors of orange and yellow, and constant additive of pumpkins spice in just about everything! (And I mean everything). Well, who am I kidding…living in Florida this starts around the end of November. But for the rest of you geographically north of me, especially those really north of me, enjoy your view!
Growing up in the Midwest, my Dad always had his fall checklist. It was all the home maintenance projects that needed to be completed before winter—and he loved doing it (or he loved bossing me and my brother to help). No matter where you live, there’s always something to complete in your home because maintenance is a pay me now or pay me a whole lot later” type of concept—in the end you’ll be glad you did it.Read More
Everyday there are routines you perform, many without much thought. Did you know that one of the best cures if you feel overwhelmed or stressed is to make your bed? The concept is to get one part of your day totally in order so you feel you have more control.
This may sound familiar to you: after an extremely long day of meetings, fire drills, and general workplace drama, its now time to put on your best face and come home to your starving kids and actually put together a meal. Or maybe its your spouses turn this time but as a caveat, you now have car pool duty and need to take 6 other kids home from baseball practice. Or maybe you look around and it’s just you with no extra person to help do anything!Read More
I must say if you saw me 3 years ago you’d never believe anything in my home was pretty or fabulous. My routines hailed disorder rather than consistently doing the little things to maintain order. My décor breathed dull and boring rather than vibrant color. Fast forward to today and I'mRead More
