6 Tips for Spring Cleaning

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Winter is slowly, but surely coming to an end. HURRAY!! Meaning we can finally come out of hibernation! haha. Along with hibernating all winter, I find myself not letting go of much, and my room tends to get over-crowded and nothing has been given a good, proper clean.

But to be honest, spring cleaning hasn’t always been something that excited me. In fact, I never really did a full spring cleaning up until last year.  And after I did it, I noticed such a difference in my mood. Cleaning the winter grime away completely changed my mind from hibernation mode, to spring mode! So, I decided to give my top 6 tips to make spring cleaning a little more bearable.

  1. OPEN WINDOWS : After having your windows shut all winter it tends to make your home feel stuff, with stale air. Opening the windows brings fresh air into the home. I also love to light some floral scented candles, or putting some nice essential oils in my diffuser.

“cleaning it ALL seems daunting”

2. ROOM BY ROOM : When stepping back and looking at your entire home, cleaning it ALL seems daunting. But tackling one room at a time makes it so much more bearable! I also find I clean a lot more thoroughly when I do it one room at a time.

3. REMOVE EVERYTHING : It’s such a task to clean around everything, and move everything one by one as you clean. So, remove everything other than the big furniture in the room! Not only is it more convenient, you’ll also give everything a deeper clean. This is also a great time to throw your sheets in the wash and give them a deep clean.

“Spring cleaning is the perfect opportunity to go through your belongings”

4.SORT AS YOU PUT BACK : After you deep clean, don’t just put everything back the way it was. Spring cleaning is the perfect opportunity to go through your belongings and get rid of anything you no longer like, use or wear!

5. DONATE : Instead of just throwing away all the things you no longer want and letting them go to waste, donate it! One mans trash is another mans treasure after all! Donating is also a great way to shrink your carbon foot print. And while your at the thrift store look for some new things to decorate your home for the spring!

Who Run The World?

GIRLS!

Today is International Women’s Day, a day that stands for women’s rights. It feels like this years is more important and relevant then ever. With everything happening in the United States, the #timesup and #metoo campaigns I feel as though this day means so much more this year.

Before I go any further I just want to say sorry. To any women who I called pretty or beautiful, before I complimented the thing that matters. Before I told you that you are smart, intelligent, brave, strong. Before I told you how extraordinary you are. I am sorry I automatically put your worth to how you looked.

I’m gonna say it. Women are bad a**! And when women support each other, incredible things happen.

We fight for the future, not the past. 

We fight for our children, for our own futures. In the last few years I have never been more proud to say yes, I am a Millennial. Cause what we are doing is going to make history books, we’ll make sure of it. We hold world wide rally’s. No matter what city, or country or time zone. We make it happen, we have voices and they are going to be heard.

I know this may seem a little all over the place, but I am just so proud to be female and be apart of a time that has so many advances, with so many strong women. I am female, and I am proud.

SPRING | 5 Must Have Transition Pieces

***

Spring is here!… kinda. Here in the north the weather has gotten to that stage where you need a jacket when you leave in the morning, and are overheating in the afternoon. It’s such a long, annoying time of year. And it’s even more annoying to dress for it.

 These are some must have pieces in my wardrobe for this time of year!
1. High waisted denim. Not only is it a huge trend at the moment, but they are comfier then skinny jeans, and are so easy to style! Pair them with a cropped sweater and either sneaker or some booties.
2. Cropped sweaters. These are essentials in my closet for anytime of year.
3. Basic t-shirts. You can never go wrong with a basic T, some mom jeans sneakers and an oversized blazer this time of year.
4. Booties. With all the snow melting I love wearing some booties. They are warmer then sneaker, can be dressed up or down, and don’t look like a big winter boot.
5.  Trench or blazer?  I love both, they add just the right amount of warmth in the morning and don’t cause you to over heat in the afternoon. Not to mention they are some of the biggest trends at the moment!

WHAT ARE YOU MUST HAVE PIECES?

The Olsen Twins, Inspirational Women

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are my childhood hero’s. I grew up watching them on T.V. every single day when I visited my Nana & Papa during the summer break. If you follow me on Pinterest, then you know I have been pinning the hell out of their photos! There style is so simple, yet different. I am obsessed with it! Rarely are there outfits something other then neutral coloured, but they somehow make everyone stand out, and set the newest trend!
Their street style is unbelievably chic, yet wearable. With 2 fashion houses they own, The Row and Elizabeth & James, they are the epitome of chic.

 

 

With the pressure of designing complete lines for both companies, along with other designing projects for different brands, they are true business women and have become the person I aspire to be as I grow older.
