Refreshed & Ready

“Keep your face always toward the sunshine and the shadows will fall behind you.”

Walt Whitman

After a beautiful weekend I feel refreshed & ready to put all of my energy towards growing as an individual. This week I have plenty to do with very little time, bare with me if I tend to dip in & out during the madness. Can’t wait to catch up on my daily reads. I always miss reading all of your posts when things get busy.

All my love, Bee

Holi Festival of Colors SLC, Ut

If my best friend wasn’t en route to my abode for the weekend I’d be experiencing this in my hometown today. But I don’t have any room to complain — next year we’ll be there twirling in the colors, basking in free hugs & feeling the buzz of Springs energy at the Holi Festival 2013.

Until then, we’ll recreate it with bubbly & music in my living room. Can’t wait to see you, sissy.

Happy weekend, loves!!

Will Knows

It’s Monday Morning & you probably don’t have much time to spare. But if you do, listen to this motivational video with Will Smith. I think he has done a fantastic job balancing his career and his family, which is something that is truly difficult to do even when you’re not a celebrity.

Another reason I love Will Smith? He celebrates his wife instead of acting like he is entitled to having her be his partner (need an example? go here) I don’t care who you are, whether you are a celebrity, CEO, or athlete, you still need to cherish and celebrate the brilliant people in your life. My belief is that if you aren’t being celebrated it is time to upgrade.

And… I’d feel wrong for not sharing these photos of their home that showcases their incredible taste. Can you say dream home?

Coloring outside of the lines

I can’t get over these darling chalkboard eggs. I found the idea on the blog Oleander and Palm. Dying eggs has always been a favorite of mine and I have searched for new ideas each year but this is one of the best yet. Oleander and Palm even painted rocks with chalkboard paint and kept them as a centerpiece. I’m all about fresh new idea’s and can’t wait to see what all of you think about them, too. If you need another creative idea take a look at the eggs I shared a back in January or try this idea. Never too early to plan for a beautiful Holiday such as Easter. All my love, Bee

White Walls

Dear Universe, thank you for my home.

Thank you for the white walls that enclose this place full of love, passion and adventure. Walls that are perfectly bare, so very empty. Almost like they are begging me to begin spinning among the creativity within until the colors of my spirit come to life on a super-sized canvas. We all need a beautiful place to clear our thoughts & just be — this is mine. I call it my sanctuary, my escape, my childhood dream grown into the best reality.

Love, me

Just a splash

Absolutely loving this modern style for homes right now. I imagine living in a home like this & never getting tired because of the vibrant colors. What do you think, do you like the daring splashes of color, or is it too much for your taste?

I am always searching for pretty book ends for decoration but I never find any I love that match my house. A cool way to solve that problem is to cover bricks with a fabric of your choice. It’s easy and gives you more control over the color scheme in your home. Hope that helps.

All my love, Bee
