“Your calm mind is the ultimate weapon against your challenges.” ~Bryant McGill from the @calm app
As you all know, I just redid my bedroom and office for 2020, thanks to Wayfair! This was such a great experience and so needed not just for the physical spaces, but for my mental health.
I am someone who struggles with anxiety, it was the main reason for wanting less clutter and be more at peace. Anxiety is something you may not always notice that someone is going through because it can be very internal especially for me. I have learned what creates less anxious days, it starts with my space being calming and less stuff.
Setting up my sanctuary and creative office has helped create such calm for me in life and it feels amazing. I am more hopeful now more than ever going forward in life. It feels amazing to have my own mediation corner, my nightstand with my sage and palo Santo, a bed that gives me calming sleep and an office that opens up my creative juices.
I am excited to keep creating that calm and peace everywhere in my life and to help whoever I can create calm and peace in their lives
When it comes to home improvements, I have always thought that to really make a change and splash I would have to go big, knock down some walls and repaint every space, but that is not the case. When I was exploring Wayfair and all its amazing things, I realized making a splash with home improvements is all in the details.
Here are some of my favorite details that I look forward to adding to my different spaces! Hope it inspires you and remember we can all make a splash in our own space.
To kick off being back to posting on a regular basis, I am launching a new series, “Where In The World Does Iced Tea and Top Knots Want To Go.” For the first one, I am covering Paris, France! Ever since I was little I have always wanted to go to Paris and anytime I saw Paris on TV or in a movie it heightened my dream to go to Paris.
What really just confirmed my love of Paris was the movie ‘Midnight in Paris.’ Truly fell in love all over again with Paris and more. I have my outfits planned for each occasion and historical spot I want to visit as well as my coffee spots where I will have a tea latte and French macaroon. I can’t wait to go and that is one of my goals for 2020, go to Paris and soak up as much as I can. Here’s to the trip of my dreams. I have listed some of my favorites I have that I want to go to. See below and let me know what your favorites have been when visiting Paris.
The holidays are in full swing with Christmas just around the corner. Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year for many reasons. Some of those reasons are it is a time to be with family, celebrate with friends, give to others and get cozy in Christmas pjs while I drink hot coco, oh and watching Hallmark Christmas movies! To get the full feel of a cozy holiday I have to have my blanket, pillows, Christmas decor and Wayfair is the perfect place to get all of that. See my favorite Wayfair choices below to achieve the perfect, cozy Christmas from day to night!
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!
