Retail Therapy...

Retail Therapy
Do you believe in Retail Therapy? Meaning the kind that fills your soul- No Seriously! 
I do- I believe that when we're feeling low-for whatever reason, or sad, or helpless that buying something for ourselves or someone we care about- maybe having to do with the reason that we are sad- "lift us up." 
The definition of Retail Therapy is-"Shopping in order to make ones self feel better."
This is completely true & can be such a great feeling, as well as a wonderful & generous thing to do!
Retail Therapy gets a bad rap; as if we are being selfish or glutenous. Often times when we are purchasing, I know this of myself- it is for others; my daughter, husband, friends, family, my students...my dog! 
As people we get a "high" from shopping! A high from providing for others! A high from being generous & having the means to give to ourselves & others! On top of that high place the high of getting a GREAT deal & I can be high on my purchase for days!
Think of all of the other much more destructive things we could be doing with our time & money- unhealthy eating, drug abuse...etc!
Shop on, ladies & gentlemen!!
Retail Therapy is GOOD for your soul!

New Year Refresh

I t’s that time of year when the holidays are over our holiday Decor is put away, hopefully! Your home is clean & quiet & let’s face it- we’re stuck in the house right now due various reasons. So, it’s a great time to reevaluate and refresh. I find that if I don’t go through my things, refresh and get rid of things that I don’t need or use; think those fancy underwear that you bought that were so uncomfortable that you never wore them!  That being said- Let’s get rid of the clutter and keep the things that we feel our best in! If we learned anything in 2020 it was to live our best lives. I like to take the end of January/beginning of February as a time to go through my things. I start with the most important; my “intimates”… Meaning bras underwear pajamas and of course my robe! This week at Smooth Styling with Corinne we are going to explore all of these! We will talk about underwear/panties (I hate that word)... bras/bralettes/sports bras, pajamas- I will Share with you my fav

Making a list, checking it twice...

Do you have a holiday shopping list? Santa should not be the only one making a list & checking it twice!  Getting & staying  organized around the holidays is a skill all to its own. As we know most Moms have what we call"Holiday Anxiety." Don't get me wrong- I know you LOVE the holidays! The decorating as a family, baking together, visiting Santa, getting the Christmas tree & decorating, drinking hot chocolate together- the whole shebang... BUT we have A LOT to do & most of that "To Do" is behind the scenes. It is the prepping, the shopping, the wrapping, the organizing that the kids, & often others, do not see.  Well, I do not need one more thing to be stressed about. I want to enjoy my hot chocolate & be able to reorganize the ornaments on the Christmas tree in peace :) and I would be LOST without my Holiday Gift Spreadsheet. I am not a spreadsheet kind of girl on the daily. I will admit that lists are my jam & I could not live with
