The Cleanse, Part II

I have been thinking about doing another shopping cleanse for a while now, and decided that October would be the month this year. So it was pretty crazy when I went back to my old “The Cleanse” post, and realized that it was last October that the first cleanse happened! Funny coincidence, or is there something about transitioning to fall that just makes you want to clean out? No matter the reason, it’s time kiddos! So who’s with me this year??? Don’t remember what a cleanse is? Here’s a recap from last year: The

Day Dreamin…

I need a nap. My day job has been a been a bit cray cray lately, which means my free time for home DIYs, blogging, and catching up on my favorite blogs has taken a back seat. So whenever I’m feeling stressed out, I love to take 10 minutes and go on Pinterest and look at home decor photos of calming, beautiful spaces. Call me crazy (or maybe cray cray – god I can’t believe I used that term!) but doesn’t taking 5 minutes to zone out to some pretty pictures make you feel a little more relaxed??? Images via
