Recently I posted to my personal Facebook account stating that I wish I received one dollar for every time someone insisted that I become an interior decorator. This came after a conversation with my cousin at one of our family gatherings where he expressed how much he and his girlfriend loved my taste in decor and maintains that I should consider taking it more seriously. The status was accompanied by a few seasonal decor photos of my living room, including a more recent picture I took after adding a few new home decor accents.
As the conversation surrounding social media’s influence on mental health continues to make its way to the forefront, one social media platform is exploring a new technique that has many influencers questioning the future of brand ambassador opportunities.
It’s been a while since I’ve done a home decor related post — and with the first day of Spring now less than a month away, I thought now would be the perfect time to talk color.

First and foremost, Happy New Year guys!
I hope everyone had an amazing holiday season and is now ready to kick off the New Year with a fresh mindset and a new set of goals. After offering up a few tips on things like ‘How To Set & Actually Achieve Your Goals For The New Year’ and ‘5 Benefits of Creating a Vision Board’, I wanted to continue the conversation of goal-setting and personal development by discussing some great practices for success.
With the holiday season finally coming to a close, let me just start off by saying that I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas filled with love, joy, and plenty of food. Even though this is my favorite time of the year, the hardest thing is getting back on track after the holidays.
Knowing that she started out as an intern with DJ Funk Master Flex at widely known New York radio station Hot 97 and would later become one of the top digital and social media strategists in the music industry, Karen Civil had become an instant inspiration to me and my blogging journey the moment I learned of her.
With just fifteen days left until the new year, it’s time to start thinking of what your goals and aspirations are for the next twelve months. Sometimes I think we underestimate the power and importance of setting goals. It helps to not only keep us focused, but we wake up every day knowing we have a purpose and goals to meet.
