Shine for Avenue Fall Fashion Week

The time for cozy clothes and rich colors has arrived.  Here is just one of the gorgeous seasonal outfits you will find on the runway at Avenue’s Fall Fashion Week, brought to you by shine by [ZD]. The plum of the wool trench and skirt combo is a perfect canvas for mix and match with contrasting and complementary colors.  I chose a pretty deep teal in my color-play. Plus, the outfit is a two piece, meaning you can break the pieces apart for additional fashion fun options.

Taste the Orient in your own backyard

This month’s Genre, with an East Asian theme, is just about to wrap up.  The offerings at Genre are easily one of the best bargains on the grid.  You can escape to the Orient without ever leaving home with the addition of one of Circa Living’s Ayumi Tea houses. There is a color for every taste, and at 100L a piece, that is a price that fits into anyone’s budget, complete with the amazing detail and quality Circa Living is known for.

Circa Living is also offering their Ayumi Sitting sets, that coordinate with the tea house color of your choice, also only 100L.  This round of Genre wraps up on Sept 12, and when the goodies move to the store, the prices go up, so hurry over while you can to add a little Asian flare to your decor.

Intuition

Have you been listening to that small voice inside, that gentle prodding, your inner wisdom that is perhaps nudging you in a new direction?  We all have a touch of intuition, that part of us that has an inner knowing about what we need to do, but it is easy to tune it out or choose not to listen to it whenever it seems to be steering us in a new direction.

For example, one of the scariest things for me is saying hello to someone I don’t know, especially if I am the one reaching out first.  And yet, I’ve seen that inner wisdom be right so many times.  As early as second grade, I recall the teacher saying we could choose who we sat beside, but both parties must be in agreement.  I locked eyes with a girl across the room, and she with me.  We had never spoken before that day, but something inside us knew that we were destined to become best friends.  Intuition is like that.  Particularly with someone new. We may not know what the draw is, but something in us says “Say hello.”  And when we do, often times they become a dear friend, a lover, or if nothing else, they help us or we help them learn something that was needed that perhaps could have not been found if not for the meeting.

So the next time you feel a pull, whether it be towards a person or a new endeavor, be brave, take a chance. Follow your intuition.  It is, after all, your inner wisdom.

How to be a Modern-Day Robin Hood

Legend has it that Robin Hood robbed from the rich to give to the poor. At initial glance, we often tend to view that story in terms of an exchange of money, and many of us say; “I would love to make a difference to those in need, but I can barely make ends meet myself.”

The story is, in fact, a wonderful metaphor. For we are all rich in something, and what is valued most about you is rarely your finances. Maybe you are rich in creativity, or maybe it is compassion.  Perhaps you are rich in faith, and know beyond doubt that no matter how bad things may be today, this too shall pass.  Perhaps it is the ability to make someone else smile, or find the silver-lining in any situation. You may criticize yourself for being quiet, while others delight at what a good listener you are. We take these things for granted, as they tend to be part of our personality.  Rarely do we think of them in terms of any real value.

Modern Robin Hood

And perhaps they aren’t of much value to us personally.  They aren’t meant to be.  These are divine gifts that are meant to be given away, for there are others so very hungry for them, as they lack them in their own lives. These are your divine gifts to give; “divine” for they bring hope.  Hope is the real message behind Robin Hood, and you can be a modern-day Robin Hood.  The only cost is caring.

A Spring Fling

There is something so light-hearted about springtime.  I think it is all the soft colors, new growth and sunshine.  It inspires a bit of whimsy in me.  I know some people go into spring-cleaning mode.  I get the bug to redecorate.  I had an “ooooh…look what’s in the box,” moment when I opened up Circa Living’s latest designs.  I found myself looking around the house for what I could fling, or at least tuck away, so I could freshen up the place, and ring-in the spring with these great new home accessories.
