Welcome to the blog...
This space is all about seeking
EXCITED CHILLS and creating a
simple, authentic, beautiful life.
I do hope you'll stay a while!
I hope this month is off to a great start for you! I've been enjoying a quiet week after finishing 31 Days- a writing challenge. If you missed any of
Simple Style A-Z, you can check out all of the posts in one place...
right here. Thanks again to all of you who followed along. I hope you found the ideas, tips and links helpful.
I have two things I'd like to share today. One is a book and one is a free online mini course. I'm currently enjoying them both.
First, is a new book by Garance Dore. If you aren't familiar with her, she's a super stylish blogger, illustrator, photographer and author. Oh, and she's French. I've loved her drawings since my first glance. She is at once... adorable and chic.
I've been waiting for the release of her new book, Love, Style, Life. Imagine my delight when I walked into work at Anthropologie yesterday and discovered that we have the book in stock! Needless to say, I came home with a copy. While I haven't finished reading/looking at this gorgeous book, I can already tell it will be a favorite on my style shelf. The pages are packed with tips and photos and stories...I don't know which chapter I like best!
Buy one for yourself or as a gift! Or both!
Second is a mini course called 'The Best Year Ever'. Blogger Ruth Soukup has created a free, simple, mini course designed to help you use the rest
of this year in preparation for making 2016 your best year ever!
I love this idea because I always feel like the new year sneaks up on me and I haven't taken the time to really dream, identify goals and put a plan in place. Then...in January, I stress about resolutions and setting goals...and often feel like it's already too late, why bother. Ridiculous, but honest.
Ruth's concept works for me. It allows me to get ready for 2016 now so that I'm all set when the ball drops and I can hit the ground running!
Here's a link to sign up for the mini course.
It officially started on November 2, but it's not too late to begin.
Check out her website, Living Well Spending Less. It's packed with money saving ideas that are unique and actually worthwhile. I love the Freezer Meals...especially Grandma's Sloppy Joes. It's become a family favorite at my house.
I'm putting the finishing touches on my Wardrobe Workshop. I'll be sure to let you know when it's ready to roll...very soon!
Thanks for reading. If you have any questions, or any trouble getting signed up for the mini course...let me know and I'll forward you the original email.
