Two Words for 2012 - Comfortable Boldness

There are many bloggers who name a word for their year. When I created my 12 Intentions for 2012, I was seeking something similar — a focus, a thread, a theme, to weave in and out and through my year. In 2010, my word was nurture. It was serendipity in 2011. As I started reading Style Statement, I came upon two words: my foundation and my creative edge...

Happy February to you, my lovelies! I am so thrilled to begin a fresh month, especially since we get a bonus day on the 29th. How did your January shape up? I completed the Whole Living Action Plan as I intended and finished reading Style Statement.

Shimmering Possibility

I recently attended a goal setting session at my local lululemon. I went with my friend and an open mind, hoping to learn something new. The event began with introductions, then a brief visualization of where we hope to find ourselves 10 years from now. I'm trying not to judge myself too harshly, but it kinda seems like I want it all...

12 Books for 2012

The first few days of school were always my favorite, and I especially loved when instructors introduced the course syllabus. There was magic in having knowledge at my fingertips, with a map and experienced guide to show me the way.

I'm quite fond of outlines and lists...

Good Eats & Gratitude - #WLActionPlan Week 1

The new year is a perfect time to implement new eating habits. There's momentum from New Year's resolutions, plus the inevitable post-holiday hangover. When parties, festivities and visits with family are in full-swing, we eat more holiday comfort food than any other time. Have enough peppermint martinis, pieces of pie and Christmas cookies...

A Weekend Recap

Hello lovelies! How was your weekend? Mine was quite wonderful. On Saturday, my friend and I drove 2 hours to our nearest Ikea. I picked up a few goodies including some picture frames and Christmas ornaments. I've been trying to get myself in the habit of waking up early, so on Sunday I set my alarm for 5:00 am. It was a quiet and peaceful morning spent sipping tea and reading...

Goodreads and the 1-Year Challenge

When my Mister and I moved in together, decorating came easy. Our tastes mesh well — clean lines and dark furniture, artwork of city skylines. We agreed on getting one feature piece for our new home. While he's not a huge fan of throw pillows and I could do without surround sound, we both wanted a bookcase. He's an avid reader and I'm an eager shopper — the combination...
