Dear Diary,

For the past 6 months I’ve been living alone! It’s something I always wanted to do in my life, but never knew if I’d have the opportunity living in LA. It’s an expensive city! But I find that everytime I take a leap of faith, abundance follows and it’s the best thing I could have done for myself. I love living in a space where everything around me represents who I am and makes me feel happy!

When redecorating my house I wanted it to feel clean, new and fresh! I read The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up and was moved to change the way I organize and view my things. It’s all about decluttering your life and home and only surrounding yourself with things that bring you JOY! I love that each item in my place really does do that for me :)

I had some items that were practical pieces, but I didn’t like the aesthetic. I was planning on Goodwilling them, but found myself looking for replacements that were expensive in a time when I needed to stay on a budget. So why not just throw a coat of paint on it and make it look new and shiny?! That’s just what I did to this book shelf!

I then styled out the shelves with items that make me smile and inspire me!

What inspires me?

Books by women who are making a difference, my Glamma’s bracelets, pictures of friends…

Pretty girlie shoes, polaroid cameras and books that I’ve been published in or have a positive message. They all bring me JOY!

How are you decluttering your life in 2016?!
