Serious Tips to RE(de)FINING Your Life!

I'm a BIG fan of Marni Jameson. I read her column each week, enjoying her advice, antics and agony in the everyday adventure of living. In paraphrasing her next two columns, I do so as a homage to her wit, cleverness and style!

Lessons Learned in 2015:

January.... Clean Start!
Upgrade your Soaps to French-Milled. All soaps contain fat and alkaline (lye) creating crystals, then run through a French Milled Soapsmill once. French-Milled is running through the mill three times making the soap harder, smoother & milder, and richer. Benefits to you? It lasts longer, it's much nicer to the skin and creates a creamy lather. Once you've been Frenched...!
February.... De-Clutter!
You've seen the shows from Yard Sale to Hoarders! Just Do It! Begin sorting, one room at a time, and create three piles: KEEP*DONATE*TOSS  Be tough. Try on all clothes. If it fits and in good repair, Keep. If bad fit, Donate. If bad repair, Toss! If it's a Loved One's Nostalgia, cut a portion to make a keepsake like a pillow, then TOSS the remainder.
March.... Luxury Linens!
Spending a full 1/3 of your life in bed means you need the most comfort you can afford. The longer the cotton staple, the more luxurious the thread from which it is woven. The thread count does count, but not if it is woven from short staples! Test drive pillow cases first, then buy the entire set! BEST Advice hands down!
Mirrors and ConsoleApril.... Spring Reflections!
Mirrors can perform Magic in a home: Lighten dark space; enlarge small space; shine dull space! They can be time savers too! C
heck yourself before leaving at the beautiful mirror/console for final approval! You can add a small one among photos to bring more attention to the display or place one under a floral arrangement to reflect the natural beauty. I like to put one under my glass cake stand or use glass chargers under dinner plates also. Use latex paints for enhanced decor.
May.... Setting the Stage!
Whether you are preparing to Sell, readying for Visitors, or just need to breathe easier as OCD takes a strong grip of your senses, sweeping through your home with a machete or bulldozer sometimes is the drastic measure necessary to begin renewal. Staging is important especially when selling AND following the four D's is critical: Declutter, Deep Clean, Depersonalize & Decorate. By doing this, you start to look at your home from the Buyer's/Visitors/Health Department's point of View and that's not so bad, is it?
June.... Dream & it will come!
If you picture it, (dream it, envision it, white board it, draw it, cut-out photos, pin it), you will find it eventually. Feel that delicious Love-at-First-Sight Phenomenon, and when you do, you will know that you have found the home you've searched for!

Next week, will come the next 6 Lessons Learned from the ever entertaining Marni with a Twist of Sharisma!
