I seriously can’t deal with this cold weather much longer. Here in Memphis, our winters can be very fickle. One day it can be a perfectly cool jacket weather day and the next day you can be stranded in your house trying to avoid going out and slipping on 2 inches of ice that fell overnight. Well, after having 4 snow/ice days off from work the past couple of weeks, I feel like I can comfortably say that it’s high time to get ready for spring. That means only one thing to me: SPRING CLEANING!

Yes, I love spring cleaning. Maybe it’s because when done thoroughly and properly, you are left with a clean and de-cluttered home and life. So, this weekend, it’s all about the preparation and gathering and/or buying all the tools I need to get started on spring cleaning the next few weekends. I plan to hit up Target and Home Depot to get all the things I need.

So, if you are gearing up or planning out your spring cleaning agenda, here is checklist of items you need to have in your cleaning arsenal to take on the daunting, but fulfilling task of annual spring cleaning. Continue Reading

Last week, I took on the daunting, yet fulfilling task of downsizing my makeup collection. It was something that was long overdue, because I can honestly say that I’ve only worn about 5% of the items in it.. in the past 2 years.

I haven’t really been that interested in shopping, especially makeup and beauty products until recently. I purged so much unnecessary makeup and beauty products last week. So, I’ve only bought a few necessary products that I love and are staples. However, I couldn’t help but buy a couple of new items, that I’m not regretting. Continue Reading

A Wasteful Week

I wish I could say that I was off on some spontaneous exotic vacation or even just swamped by work to explain my absence. However, the ultimate culprit was just a lazy weekend followed by two snow days off from work, which equaled me laying on the sofa binge watching/catching up on shows on my DVR.

Now, I’m back to my daily grind of being in the office, daily inspirations and the want to share them with you. So, I’m back and so will regular postings.

Stay Stylish! Continue Reading
