I randomly woke up at 4:30 this morning and hopped on Instagram which is a recipe for disaster if I’m trying to fall back asleep. While I was scrolling through, I came across this and fell in love with it. I am not a morning person by nature and while I love the morning once I’m up, getting out of bed is a major struggle. I blame it on being involved in way too many activities in high school – dance team after school, studio dance until 10 or 11pm and then home to do homework until 1 or 2:00am with classes starting again at 7:20am. Seriously, how did we do that while we were growing up?! Needless to say, I remained a night owl through college and to this day, for me, mornings are the pits. Couple a bad habit with the fact that my bed is a freaking cloud (seriously, SO comfortable) and I’m never getting up. This, however, put things in perspective for me this morning and I found myself getting out of bed and into the kitchen to make coffee at 5:30am. My morning was so productive, I felt surprisingly refreshed and was more than ready to tackle the day. I think I need to plaster this to my ceiling or on my nightstand so it’s the first thing I see when my alarm goes off ;-) Just thought I’d pass it along in case any of you need a little extra motivation too! Hope you’re having a great week chasing your dreams and changing the world!
As much as I love the black executive suite at our office, the marketing team’s space on the top floor is collaborative, bright, airy, open and white… which is truly my go-to aesthetic. It’s hard to believe that it’s been over a year since we moved into our space and within that year, we’ve inevitably had everything from boxes to paper samples to glass samples, ribbon – you name it – pile up… everywhere. I took a day this week to de-clutter my personal work space and I was shocked at what an unbelievable weight was lifted off my shoulders. I actually WANT to get to the office early, light a candle, put on some tunes and get creative.
Around the same time, I’ve been
stalking admiring Emily Henderson’s latest project (isn’t she seriously THE BEST?!?!) and being that my color palette right now is basically mint/sea foam green, white and flax, I realized how insanely easy it would be to integrate some of the warmer blush tones and a hint of raspberry or coral to spruce things up. I finally pulled the trigger and ordered some art that I’ve been wanting forever and can’t wait to pull everything together hopefully next week :-) Below is a little inspiration board I threw together… What do you think?
