How do you wake up in the morning?
Is it begrudgingly, hitting snooze as many times as possible before you have to literally force yourself out of bed with sheer will? Do you wake up most of the time clear-minded and excited for the day?
This morning, with birds chirping and newly sprouting plants surrounding me, I am really aware of the morning routines I have designed and how they affect my well being. This is an enormous subject, but if you are struggling to wake up every day, you might find some thing to spark your own morning love affair starting now! Continue Reading…
You will never be ready, 100% prepared and flawlessly stunning. Say yes anyway. To every opportunity. You will figure it out! Tina Fey- ever the genius. xoxo Dana
One of the last pieces of my home feng shui & design to finish is the very very vital bedroom wall art.
Of course, in this situation I feel the need to make it myself (and yes, I will chronicle it, even though I am a total beginner!), and I am really ready to have it up on the wall.

I am deeply obsessed with magenta. It may have temporarily been crowded out of my closet by red, but I predict it will make a comeback as my birthday approaches.
