Happy Monday friends!

I can't believe the weekend has gone so fast! (in fact the last couple of weeks have gone by in something of a blur!). With my parents visiting I have attempted to not only soak up as much quality time as I can with them, but also get a jump on some projects that have been in the back of my mind! I'm happy to say that my projects are well underway and I even have another week of their visit! I apologize for my posting on my blog being a bit off, however this week will return to normal posting schedule! 

On the Blog this Week

Wednesday - I'm so excited to share a guest post by one of my favorite Instagram ladies Erin Hendrickson! This week Erin shares an article entitled "Create your own vacation capsule wardrobe!" If you're wondering what a capsule wardrobe is all about or how to create one, this will be a fantastic jumping off point!

Friday - This Friday I'm discussing 5 areas of your home that you can declutter and organize right now! Every home has small areas that tend to get unruly or unorganized over time, this Friday we break down 5 common areas that may just need a little adjustment to organize them permanently and develop habits that will help maintain it!

Video's of the Week

Katie Ryan - Vine Compilation - I first saw this Youtube video on Facebook and spent about 10 minutes laughing my head off at it! This little girl is hilarious I promise you, you will love it! (My favorite part is the "You're winning! You're winning at life!" part!) 

How to: Clean Your Grill - With BBQ season in full swing I thought I would share a video I discovered by Christina Hitchcock on how to clean your grill in 6 easy steps!

How to: Sell on Ebay - If you're a follower of the #debtfreecommunity movement on Instagram and Facebook, or in the process of making money and/or getting out of debt, you have probably run up against the word "side hustle". A "side hustle" is when you look for creative ways to add additional income into your household. Ebay has become an amazing way to make extra money AND declutter your home! I first found States Place on Instagram and was blown away by a family that could have a full time job being an Ebay seller! These guys are amazing! So, today I thought I would share a video from their Youtube channel entitled "15 tips from full time Ebay sellers" to give us all some inspiration! (Also Nicole I have huge hair love you look amazing). 

Podcast Love

The Simple Sophisticate - Shannon Ables is back this week with an episode entitled "The Importance of a Daily Routine & How to Create One You Love" I feel like this episode will be right up my alley! I love my daily routines and have one for myself as well as my home and everything else!

Creative Empire Podcast - I recently discovered the Creative Empire Podcast through Instagram and I am so excited about it! If you're a creative entrepreneur or just looking for more information on being the CEO of your life then definitely check this one out! 

(I feel like Jennifer L Scott should totally do a Podcast. How amazing would her podcast be?!) 

I hope you had an amazing weekend and are enjoying the start of your week! Let me know what you're up to in the comments I would love to know!

Yours,

 
 

My Weekend in Pictures!

We had a wonderful weekend full of BBQ's, friends, lunches and festivities! We picked up some beautiful chicken breasts from our local grocery store that came with a beautiful tequila and lime merinade on it and then threw some veggies on a skewer with some olive oil and voila! Easy BBQ for us and our friend Ginger!

My Husband and I had the opportunity to stay over in Napa this past Thursday night and we had a wonderful time! Whenever I have the opportunity to stay at a hotel, or go to a spa or another luxury, I always study my surroundings as much as possible to discover small touches I can recreate at home. My inspiration from our weekend was this amazing walk in shower! I love the slate tiles and the spa feeling! I'll have to incporate that somewhere in the future =)

'Press' in Saint Helena is such a beautiful restaurant! Highly recommend if you are around that area! And its right beside "Dean and Deluca" which is just a dangerous place if you love coffee and simple luxuries!
