The simplest feng shui ever starts with connecting to your space. TAO means CONNECTION.  And whether you connect to objects from your actual home or to objects that remind you of the place you feel most at home (i.e.- bookshelves if you are at home in the library, the beach if your most fond memories were at the shore, etc, etc) you have more TAO.  And that means more power, abundance and creative self-actualization.

Cool, right?

Today I pulled together some inspiration that looks a lot like my childhood house in New Jersey and more is to come! I am so excited to share pictures soon of my actual childhood home, mixed with how I’ve created that feeling in my home in many ways today.  It’s a 70’s remix!  Like the giant antique rug with white sofas- the classic look of my Jersey living room.

Do you know what reminds you of home? Continue Reading…

It’s no longer a hippie secret that there are chemicals that are decidedly not good for your body and mind that are loaded into many skin care products and cosmetics.  Both men and women face the bathroom detox challenge these days, as we are now aware that many common products- some shampoo to basic body lotion and deodorant- are not the greatest for our hormones, our bloodstream, our mood and even the fututure of our health.

As I woke up this morning to finish a big bathroom/beauty closet  feng shui project in my own home, I realized that I had a few lingering toxic culprits in my own bathroom that I avoid instead of replacing.  That is just clutter! And as it gets properly sorted today, I thought I would pull together a simple way to lighten your toxic load.

First, a basic cheat-sheet of common cosmetic chemicals for you to pin and take with you as you shop:

Now to the fun! I’ve bundled up some of my favorite basics from celebrity makeup artist and balanced beauty expert Chantal Moore’s reviews and introductions so that you can make a few quick switches in your own daily routine.   Chantal has tested so many products in her life and in the field of very high profile makeup artistry to bring us the top performers, so you don’t need to sacrifice quality to move to a healthier mascara, lipstick or body lotion!  Continue Reading…

Stay-Well Tonic!

cider vinegar tonic

This is an easy one to keep in your repertoire of stay-well goodies as the seasons change.

Stay Well Tonic

  • 1 TB Cider Vinegar (*I do raw, the unpasturized one, but any will do)
  • 1 TB Honey (*can be raw or regular, just make sure its real honey, there have been reports about some honey not actually being honey lately, but mixed with corn syrup, etc)
  • a few strong shakes of cayenne pepper
  • 1 lemon, juiced.

Mix it all up in a mug and add near-boiling water.

If you are a fan of drinking hot water and lemon in the morning, this is a nice switch that harkens back to the master cleanse but with much more potent kick of the apple cider vinegar.  Surprisingly, though, I find it very drinkable.

Tip: if you drink it slowly, keep a spoon nearby to keep stirring or your last sips with be all cayenne pepper!

Every time I drink it, especially if I feel allergic or a sore throat,  I feel 100%  better!!!  I hope you do, too! Enjoy!  xoxo Dana

The commonsense wisdom of the basics of feng shui: clear some junk out of the way and you will get inspired.

One tip for the day: clear the few things off your to-do list that you most dread… right now.   Dreading things takes up mental space you need in order to let all that inspiration into your life!!!  xoxo Dana

Have you experienced this?  Someone walks in a room and you feel them before you see them? It’s as through their presence is so magnetic that it can encompass the room in a great way.  You want this energy around all the time. You can’t stop looking at them.  Its like… they are huge.  And they make you happy.

A friend was just telling me that when the famed Energy Medicine creator Donna Eden walks into a conference people start smiling before she even gets through the back door.  It’s like her energy walks into the room long before she does.

So, today, in honor of the idea of creating much more space to change your life and actually DO it rather than THINK about it, here is one big way to have more positive influence in a day when you find yourself stuck in your head! Continue Reading…

I like to widen the scope of possibilities, especially  where homes are concerned.  You don’t need to remodel or even to re-decorate to live in a space that looks and feels more… done.  More custom.  More elevated.

All it takes are some smart moves.  Like perhaps a little “real house rug” in the bathroom… Or some painted shelves… or other gorgeous stuff that rounds-up into the design inspiration of the day!!!  Continue Reading…

life detox

Bowls of sea salt can clear bad juju out of your house. I have four pounds of it scattered everywhere.

Whether its a build-up of overwhelm, negativity, clutter… its all signs of the toxic stuff that seems to make us magnets for more negative, dramatic, toxic stuff.   The only way I’ve found to fix it is to break the toxic cycle.

A Life Detox.

Life being toxic sounds very vague.

I’m breaking it down so it becomes real.

Is this you: struggling through a web of negativity and chaos?

de clutter quotes

 

Einstein knew the power of clearing clutter, streamlining and simplifying.

There are all kinds of thinkers that echo the sentiment of simplicity.  I love the idea from Seth Godin that if you can’t state your position in 8 words than you don’t have a position.  Even too many words are clutter.

Simplicity has less flourish and more direction. A space and life free of clutter has a deeper sense of purpose that can flow though without meeting static.

Your mess can be your opportunity to grow!!!
