Why do we hear so much about people’s morning routine?!
What is it exactly about what we do between the time we wake up and the time we step outside that is so significant and meaningful?
Well, based on science — A LOT.
While these last few weeks have flown by, I’ve felt a little discombobulated to be honest.
Settling into new routines has always proven to be a challenge for this type-A lady, who thrives on a regimented schedule. While I’ve been slowly making the shift to a less-structured “Summer-time Stella,” I’ve also been making mental notes (and i-phone notes — thank goodness for that app!) about products, brands and styles that have been catching my eye. On their own, they might not be meaty enough for a dedicated post, but when combined you can easily see why they’re worthy of discussion.
This most recent edition of “On My Radar” is all about summer time fun!
Yes, the time has come once again…
Father’s Day is this Sunday and I’ve been working hard to put together a unique gift guide for those of you who like to keep it exciting and perhaps wait until the last minute to score that gift for dad. Dad’s are especially tough to buy for. With this Father’s Day gift guide, I promise you that THIS year you’ll be cruising into the big day stress-free, nary a cliché Father’s Day tie in sight.
Motherhood is strange.
It’s full of unexpected twists and turns with new surprises around every bend. You birth this tiny human with absolutely no clue what kind of person he/she will turn out to be. You then have the ultimate responsibility of helping to shape their story and play a supporting role. It’s like a Choose Your Own Adventure book, but you know, actually REAL and with no alternative endings!
Mother’s Day is just over 2 weeks away (May 14th)… You know, in case you were wondering.
As a mom myself, I think I just may be able to offer some valuable insights into unique gift ideas that any mom would love to receive. I’ve compiled a Mother’s Day Gift Guide (a.k.a. my own personal wish list) to help get you started and on your way to scoring mom the best Mother’s Day gift yet!
The last couple weeks, I’ve spent a good amount of time giving my home a spring deep-clean. I’ve been removing clutter, organizing closets, cleaning woodwork and trim and finally, the fun part: updating decor.
While in the midst of this OCD-fueled process, I’ve taken note of a new trend in interior design and decor that’s a quick way to inject color and pattern, without disrupting the overall feel and aesthetic of your home. Regardless of whether your interior style is rustic, preppy, glam or boho, agate is a unique decorative detail to incorporate into your design.
Today is rather a significant, landmark day for our country.
This is the first year (that I can remember in my 30+ years) that American citizens are gathering together en-masse to recognize International Women’s Day. A day commemorating the global struggle for equal rights and the important contributions that women are making to society.
Ladies (and a few gents), in case you were wondering — women do a whole f*cking lot!
With each spring, my motivation kicks into turbo charge and I take on the challenge of a home decor refresh.
Clutter gets eliminated, furniture gets moved around and small tweaks are made throughout my living spaces — swapping textiles and throws, the addition of a new statement piece, switching art prints, etc. None of this is overly difficult or expensive, but the end result is always a breath of fresh air.
This type of change feels good.
