Inspire me Wednesday!

Learning to say "no"
We wanted to talk about how we find it so hard to say “no” sometimes to do things we really don’t want to do or accepting help from those who offer. Why do we do that? Why not accept the help if we need it or feel comfortable saying “no” to a favor we really don’t want to do? Maybe it’s because we feel like we don’t want to let down the people we love and care about. We want to please everyone and take on as much as we can. So when others ask if we need help, we automatically say “no” because we like to think and tell ourselves, we can accomplish everything on our own and don’t need anyone elses help. What we need to realize is that some people enjoy helping out others, so we should accept the help. We shouldn’t feel guilty saying “no” instead why not be honest with ourselves and others. If we are constantly saying “yes” or committing to more than we can take on, we may become more of a let down because we become overwhelmed.
What do you think about this topic?

Your Challenge….

Treating yourself

I’m here to follow-up with you!!!! I challenged you guys earlier this month to treat yourself. Have you been? And what did you do for yourself? I have a link that I wanted to share with you on throwing a spa party. They have it as a little girls spa party, but you can definitely take this idea for you and your ladies (just add some cocktails).  http://onecharmingparty.com/category/spa-aah-party/

My Style Board

Making a style board really helps me gather ideas for my spaces. It also helps me visualize what everything will look like before they come into the space. I hope I encourage you to create your own style board whether it be for fashion, interior design, and just any goals that you have for your self! “Love who you are” ~Ashley Draper shelf http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/product/22592810.jsp
