the DWELLING...









bedROOM edition


With the commencement of a new season- I am INSPIRED to update my surroundings (in more ways than one #butthatisanotherpost) Where better to start-- than the first sight of the morning and the last view at night-- the bedroom.

The bedroom seems to be one of the easiest to dramatically alter with little effort. Simply adding new bedding can completely change the context of the room. Though some art up.. maybe paint an accent wall.. change out a dresser-- and we have a brand new environment.
From contemporary space, to romantic hide away, to sex dungeon-- i like to see it all played out at some point.

be CAREFUL what you wish for...


...cause you just might get it.


Who knew?? When this chick came on the scene sporting pigtails- it was a battle of the blondes: Jessica, Christina, Mandy and Brit-brat.

A decade later--this chick still reigns. Yea, I AM a britney fan. She's a bad girl, and we all know i have a weakness for the clinically insane (see past relationships *side eye*) But outside of record sales, she is still raking in the dough. Clothing and fragrance lines have kept her on the Forbes list without her even touching a mic. Jessica is another mogul who EMERGED from the pack, and has successfully used a fragrance, shoe line, purse line, and clothing line- to quietly carve her way to BILLIONAIRDOM.

a gansta rapper can make it rain, but a POP PRINCESS will... well lets just say there would be a life jacket and inflatable raft involved :) #monsoon

success HABITS...




habits of SUCCESSFUL people... (p.3)

21. They don’t believe in, or wait for fate, destiny, chance or luck to determine or shape their future. They believe in, and are committed to actively and consciously creating their own best life.

22. While many people are reactive, they are proactive. They take action before they have to.

23. They are more effective than most at managing their emotions. They feel like we all do but they are not slaves to their emotions.

24. They are good communicators and they consciously work at it.

25. They have a plan for their life and they work methodically at turning that plan into a reality. Their life is not a clumsy series of unplanned events and outcomes.

26. Their desire to be exceptional means that they typically do things that most won’t. They become exceptional by choice. We’re all faced with live-shaping decisions almost daily. Successful people make the decisions that most won’t and don’t.

27. While many people are pleasure junkies and avoid pain and discomfort at all costs, successful people understand the value and benefits of working through the tough stuff that most would avoid.

28. They have identified their core values (what is important to them) and they do their best to live a life which is reflective of those values.

29. They have balance. While they may be financially successful, they know that the terms money and success are not interchangeable. They understand that people who are successful on a financial level only, are not successful at all. Unfortunately we live in a society which teaches that money equals success. Like many other things, money is a tool. It’s certainly not a bad thing but ultimately, it’s just another resource. Unfortunately, too many people worship it.

30. They understand the importance of discipline and self-control. They are strong. They are happy to take the road less travelled.

reFRESHING





call me Mr Glass Half Full, but i get too excited about the BEGINNING. i LOVE mondays.. love moving into a new place... love learning new things... love discovering a new friend.. -- i love a fresh start.

So, of course, i am excited about what possibilities this new month will bring.

At this point, most have dropped resolutions and resumed bad habits. It happens to the best of us-- but there is no need to wait til the next New Years Eve party to take stock on your life.. and MAKE CHANGES.

Dont wait.. a new beginning can be whenever you're tired of the 'same ole, same ole.'

By the time you have finished reading this sentence, you will have concluded one moment in your personal history, and began a new. Its up to you do decide if this next chapter in your life will simply be a rerun of your previous storyline-- or something DIFFERENT and new, MOVING the story FURTHER (i mean, dont we all like a good climax?... Scratch that... what's the PLURAL of "climax"?!!!)
