it’s always fun to change the look and feel of our house as the seasons change, especially when the cold season is right around the corner. I always plan on making some subtle changes. today I used some of my colorful, cozy and warm Accent pillows to change the look of the living room, the sitting room, and the kitchen. As the weather gets colder we spend more time indoors, and it is nice to have soft blankets, fury pillows, for those moments when we are ready to sit, and relax.

I have been trying to create a quiet corner to write & read, but I constantly got distracted. The fact that I get pulled to many directions, and not the one I wanted to go, was finally too much. So a cloudy cold day pushed me to stop, plan, and take action. 🤣
It is one of my most favorite hobbies around the house, to refigure a room, and move all the furniture around. The fact that we are all stuck under one roof 24/7 had made it even more urgent to create corners, and spaces in my house to help everyone enjoy privacy and quiet spaces. The need to think, work, and work on school projects was urgent. The goal of this project was to be peaceful in a space at home without getting interrupted, and yes making this space look good too. To start my writing and thinking space I chose my bedroom, and a view by the window. Pulled a round table from another room, which opened more space for running around for my child when off zoom, and pulled a lamp from my guest room.
Let me tell you I am very happy with how it all came together, and having a place with all my favorite journals and writing notes just makes me happy, and at peace. You can watch me putting together my peaceful space step by step. Just go to our YouTube channel or click on the link.
I hope you already have a quiet, peaceful place to catch your breath, and enjoy a moment thinking, and writing, and reading 😌
When it comes to decorating and purchasing furniture for my house, I feel smarter and happier buying a piece that can have more than one purpose. I often like moving my furniture from room to room, and change around the look and feel of my surroundings, and having the freedom to have a fresh look when I need it.
Same goes with buying clothes. When purchasing a blouse or a casual piece, I think of matching that piece with what already have in my closet. Investing in pieces that I know I can wear to more than one occasion. This thought process saves me money, space in my closet, and when traveling, lighter luggage.
Scarves are a smart purchase, and can easily add color, style, and interest to any outfit. By adding a scarf to what I am wearing, I can easily switch from work attire to cocktail, and dinner out with friends. A colorful large scarf can cover a blouse and change the look of what I am wearing in minutes, and help me feel refreshed and stylish.
You can watch the way I choose my scarves, and how I wear them for different occasions. https://youtu.be/1BelN5pmp38 I hope you enjoy watching, and leave your comments. Please remember to like & subscribe👍😃 Thank you💕

Every year as sept comes around we start moving things around in our house. Tidying organizing replacing a few pieces of furniture trying to give our home a fresh look.
We are not alone, since the holiday season is just around the corner and families visit and entertain more during this time of the year we also tend to do more around the house.
With the end of the year closing, in this is a good time to purchase broadway tickets ( less tourism demand ) furniture such as TVs, mattresses, patio furniture, & cars. Anything that is not in sync with fast changing technology will see a price reduction.
So if you are the non procrastinator and can keep a secret, go shopping early for the holiday season. You can score a lot of points with a new car under the tree👍😆
