Creating an Air of Luxury

I look around my bedroom and see fragments from my childhood scattered about... after years of changes, maturation, and tastes evolving, I see that a change is needed though, but done so on a budget.

One of my goals this year is to make my bedroom a luxurious dream haven for myself - a place of coziness mixed with pretty grown-up decor that better reflects my tastes, and to finally centralize what pretty and chic style I've wanted for so long in my bedroom.

Over time, I plan to simply take the items that currently don't quite fit my tastes and make homes for them in my "Imagination Station," where my books and craft space is. That space is purposefully more eclectic. It will take a greater part of the whole year, but it will be worth it to have my space be exactly how I've dreamed it to be.

Step one: Create the air of luxury and of a sensual space. How? Quite literally, to be exact. 

Create a luxurious air.

I've recently gotten very much into wax melts and candle warmers. I used to light candles or spray room sprays, but there's something about a candle warmer that prevents your candle from being burnt up, or a bottle emptying with every spritzing of a room. It's longer lasting and I like the scent-effects better.

For my bedroom, I love sensual, sexy smells. Think masculine with floral notes, such as Bath & Body Works' Mahogany Teakwood or Black Tie.  The most delicious sensual wax melts that I use time and again are Better Homes & Gardens' Tahitian Black Orchid and AmbiEscents Teakwood Noir (available at Bed Bath & Beyond).  They are divinely wonderful and help create a cozy and relaxing atmosphere in my bedroom.
What scents do you like? Do you prefer candles or wax burners? There are so many choices out there, and so many fragrances. It can be very hard to choose sometimes.

Scent-ing you a lovely evening,

Creating Pockets of Adventures

Blessed. This is the perfect word to describe my life. While not everything goes in the direction I hope, nor does it ever happen in the ways I plan, it's mine and I have joy. More often than not, I face obstacles and sometimes rather painful experiences that I find to be overwhelming at times. All the same, I conquer. I have faith in a few things: a higher power, that higher power within me, and in myself. Faith always carries me through and has brought me to where I am.
I think my life to be somewhat average in many ways. I am not poor, but I am not wealthy. I can usually obtain the things I want if I plan for them and budget in most instances. However, I wasn't always affluent enough to afford small luxuries, such as my beloved Starbucks habit or my car. These two things would have exceeded my budget by far if I were 23-years-old again.  
Though, one thing that I am wealthy with is ambition. I've always been wealthy with ambition. If I want something, I find a way to m…

I Didn't Know What to Say

This world is full of both wonderful and heartbreaking circumstances that wear us down daily. As a nation, we are mourning another tragedy where violence has torn apart communities and families - and for what purpose? We just don't know.
I didn't write on this yesterday because I didn't know what to say. I've read that it's the deadliest mass shooting in American history. I don't know what's more sad to me: that this deplorable act is something that I feel numb towards given the increasing numbers of shootings and tragedies we are seeing nationally, or the act itself: where some random person unbeknownst to even his own family made a decision that forever altered the lives of millions of people. 
The biggest encouragement and consolation I can try to provide is to continue to shine the light into the darkest corners of the world. Whether you emit joy and love, peace or kindness, these are a few ways to impact the world in a positive way that anybody can gi…

Compassion

Months ago, I filmed a video about compassion and empathy. When I downloaded it to my computer, I didn't have the time or the drive to edit and upload it... until today. I re-watched the full 11:37 video and realized that my message was very clear and that it applies just as much to today as it did when I originally filmed it in November. 
Compassion. It's something that many people lack - not on purpose, but out of convenience. Out of carelessness. Without a thought. People aren't bad because of it, rather unaware and lacking mindfulness of who is around them and how they may be feeling.
I wanted to share this video as a reminder for people to view other people as humans - as people just like themselves. To have empathy and compassion because you just do not know what another person is going through.


Lovingly yours,
Em
