Office Upgrades + Easy Rod Pocket Panels

June 18th, 2012

Hello and happy Monday everyone!   I’m on the east coast this week hanging out with my in-laws in Savannah while Coco gets some love from the house sitter back home.  We’re out here eating a lot of southern food and seeing all the sights, Tybee Island, downtown Savannah, Hilton Head, and then spending our evenings sipping cold drinks on the screened porch, I’m havin’ a great vacay!   

Before I left home, I cleaned off my desk because I prefer to come home to a clean surface.  I made a few upgrades to the home office in the last six months, including a new rug, a smaller desk, a white leather chair, and some new curtains too.  The space still has the same blue gray grasscloth wallpaper I installed a few years ago, so I was glad to finally find a great rug in the same palette to complement.

I settled on a more petite desk in the hopes of avoiding the piles of papers that used to stack up.  I found it at local interiors shop and love its “x” base.  I also switched from working on a laptop to a desktop after I finally found a white monitor I liked (so hard to find for a PC!).

Aromatherapy Giveaway

June 15th, 2012

Greetings and happy Father’s Day weekend all, hope you have something relaxing  planned with a special dad in your life!  We’re headed to the east coast for a week to spend some time with family for a few days, and I’m also gearing up for a presentation in Atlanta at the Haven Conference, can’t wait to meet all of the attendees!

This weekend’s giveaway is brought to you by PC Fallon and their line of Archipelago bath and body products and home fragrances too.  I’ve been a fan of these products for years, they are clean and pure, never cloying like some other fragrance lines can be.  Archipelago Botanicals are made in the USA with the purest ingredients and essential oils.  My favorite scents are the lavender soaps and linen spray, the milk body lotion, and the Savannah candle (jasmine and gardenia, yum.)

Archipelago Botanicals makes body lotions, soaps, hand creams, shampoos and conditioners in lavender, milk, or mint to name a few, and also home fragrance candles and diffusers in both subtle and exotic scents.
