What Would Beyonce Do?

I kinda love this. The reason I love this doesn't really have a lot to do with being a fan of her music, though I do really like that 'drunk love' song. It's more to do with the fact this girl is gotta going on!

I watched part of her documentary a few months ago and to be honest was pretty fascinated with her. Not only is she mega, mega, mega successful but she gets the inner stuff as well. 

One of my favourite things she said was that life is like a puzzle. People and things come into your life for a reason and if you're paying attention it becomes so easy to see why and make the next move or decision. And when you look back you see how this puzzle all came together. It's how you get into the flow of life.

I'm trying to be more aware of those 'puzzle pieces' these days and where they show up. And, if that doesn't work just say...what would Queen B do?

Creating Space...

The interesting thing about committing to this Thursday Blog Post is it has me reflect on what is going on for me that week. My intention is to share in hopes of inspiring with all my other "self help junkies" out there.

This week has been pretty awesome actually. And for me to say that is a big deal. I'm not naturally a glass is half full kinda gal. I think I was born with the gene to be a 'realist' as my mom calls it. This can be a good trait in the fact that I am in tune with things but over the years I really wished I just lived in la-la land once in a while.

The reason this week has felt pretty awesome is I have lived a bit more on the side of the quote above. I am in a process of really nailing down my priorities and creating space for them. It's allowed a week of a great date night, a fun seawall outing with my girls, and some creative new ideas I have brewing for my design biz.  I haven't changed anything major, just created some space.

Feels pretty darn good!

An Inspired Design...

It's Thursday - my day for an inspirational post. I was feeling some pressure today as I didn't know what I was going to write about but want to keep my commitment to this.

What I'd really like to do, is feature people I know who are inspiring me right now and pick their brains a bit for us all to tap into that feeling.

For today, I want to share the inspiration from a design I'm working on. My mandate is to 'create spaces that inspire people about their home.' To some this may sound cheesy, to me it feels real. Loving your home can make a huge impact on your life.

I am working on a living room design that gets me so flipping excited right now. It's a little different in some ways than other rooms I've worked on. It's fresh and contemporary but I also has a mix of softness and edge.

It's still a work on progress...but here's where we are in the process.  Enjoy...
