Spring Cleaning

When Spring starts to peek out its head my need to clean, reorganize, and purge become overwhelming. I want to redecorate and cut my hair and rethink my beauty routine and clean out my closets. Needless to say it’s a productive time of year in my household.



The first task that I tackle each Spring is rearranging and inventory my closet – Move your warm weather clothes so they’re more accessible, store your Winter pieces, and make a list of new pieces that you want to add for the season.

Home & Office Decor:

My go-to reorganization tip for Spring is adding color or fun prints to a room – It’s amazing how much of a change a boldly colored pillow or bouquet of flowers or new piece of art can change the feel of a room!

Something that’s easy to forget is that your beauty products, skin care, and makeup all have expiration dates. Spring is a great time to go through your makeup bag and bathroom drawers and throw out old or never used bottles – Make room for something new!
