Spring Cleaning has never been so easy! - 03/31/11 12:52 PM
Oh spring cleaning....a task that seems to come much more often than once a year. It begins hanging over me at the end of winter after all the big holidays have finished up, then lingers into the warm months until it is so evidently spring that my sinuses are screaming at me. It really isn't even that bad...once I'm doing it, it actually starts to feel really great to re-organize. It's the getting started. But, if you have a plan from the get go and know some really great shortcuts, it's not quite as hard to start. Below are a few (3 comments)
thankful. - 03/29/11 12:06 PM
It's amazing the difference in quality of life that comes with a simple change of perspective. So many people live out of a place of unsatisfiable want. Always looking to that next thing. It becomes easy while living in a world of luxurious homes and things. People work themselves ragged to move up the property and success ladder. But to what end? After you get that big thing or promotion are you satisfied? Is it enough? Ever? It is pretty easy to get sucked into that living in the society that eats and breathes materialism for breakfast, lunch and dinner (oh (4 comments)
(www.hgtv.com) Don Raney and Jaymes Richardson designed this kitchen in their style described as "fashion forward." One of my favorite things about the design is how it's this great mix of modern and eclectic. It's not traditional for the most part, but really has a fun feel. I like how they went with the white counter tops and cabinets. It keeps the room from having a chaotic, crowded feel that could easily happen when you put in such bold colors like the orange. The room exudes a feeling of "clean," from the clean lines to the use of color. Another interesting thing (0 comments)
have you been scammed? - 03/22/11 12:23 PM
It's happened to most of us. The facebook scam. The item never received. Either you've been the victim by clicking on something you thought one of your friends left on your wall or you set the traps for others without realizing you gave your info to the wrong app. I came across an interesting article today that gave some good tip offs for what seems innocent but is probably a scam. I'll summarize for you: -The first rule of thumb: If the offer seems overly generous, it probably is. If they want to give you a $500 or $1000 gift card for (2 comments)
ways to get outside - 03/21/11 01:09 PM
If you're like me, as soon as the weather starts getting warm and the flowers begin to bloom, I get this itch to be outside. Sitting in an office continues to get more and more like being in a prison. The spring weather is calling my name and I can't get to it. If I wait, it will surely turn into the sweltering summer weather that I know all too well. Since we can't all live a vacation-style life, there are some solutions to satisfy the urge to be out in the weather rather than at a desk. First, use your (0 comments)
Contemporary or Cold? - 03/09/11 01:59 PM
Contemporary or cold? That was the questions posed above this photo today. What do you think? This living room was created by Susan Fredman, an interior designer with Susan Fredman & Associates, Ltd.
http://www.hgtv.com/designers-portfolio/room/contemporary/living-areas/1554/index.html It's hard for me to decipher whether someone else would consider this cold because I, myself, tend towards a contemporary style in home decor. However, I really don't think this room as whole comes off as "cold." The way the colors work together and the textures accent each other creates a unique and even comfortable look to me. Things I really like: -The big windows (1 comments)
gas prices got your goat? - 03/08/11 11:17 AM
It seems that every time I turn on the radio these days the dj's are either talking about "winning" with Charlie Sheen or the newly outrageous gas prices. And yes, Charlie Sheen is pretty easy to laugh about these days, but are we freaking out a little too much about paying a few more dollars at the pump? I find it some what amusing that prices going up 3 cents is all of the sudden news worthy. At the end of your fill up it maybe adds up to what... 50 cents more than before? Yes, there has been quite a large (2 comments)
solutions for your "stuff" - 03/07/11 01:11 PM
Got too much stuff that doesn't necessarily have a "spot?" Every time I move I struggle with the same items, wondering what would be the best place for them. Most of the time the same things end up in my closet, homeless. I've recently come across people doing some creative spot-givingto those homeless items. One of my favorites is the book end table. This one is for those book worms that have five hundred thousand books that they simply can't part with, but would like to display some or keep some handy. Simply stack your books up next to a couch (0 comments)
squeeze the workout out of your day - 03/03/11 05:00 PM
It's tough to motivate yourself to workout after you've worked a long, hard day and all you want to do is relax for the small amount of downtime that you have. Well, a little bit of activity worked into different parts of your day can go a long way. You don't have to block out a huge amount of precious time to spend in the gym. Here are some strategies you can implement during your day to squeeze in the exercise instead of it squeezing into your time! -Throw some random heartbeat raising spurts into your day. From Real Simple: "A (1 comments)
luxury bath - 03/02/11 01:22 PM
Love the feeling of bathing in style? Me too. There is just something so relaxing about going into a luxurious bathroom. It almost lures you to linger longer than you should. The bathroom below was designed by Douglas Dolezal, and I absolutely love it!
http://www.hgtv.com/designers-portfolio/room/traditional/home-offices/444/index.html#/id-509 There is definitely a hotel feel to the room, but I don't see that as a negative! It is a very clean space, with soft touches to make it feel comfortable. I think the marble is fantastic. I just love the way it adds some depth and interest to the room, while keeping it (3 comments)
