Apr 08/11 Inspiration/All that Glitters…

Hello and happy Friday! Lindsey, here, with your weekend inspiration fix. For my board this week, I decided to add a little glamor to a neutral color palette. I love neutrals (obviously because you can pair them with anything), and adding a little gold and glitter instantly creates a festive mood!

If you’ve created an inspiration board with some “sparkle”, post a comment with the link. We would love to see it!

If you’re new ’round here, welcome!  Every Thursday we link up with some special industry pros to bring you a post chock full of tips to keep you on top of your game.  If you’re a bride to me and missed last week’s post, jump over, you won’t want to miss it!  And don’t forget to visit my other friends listed at the bottom of this post who are also sharing Thursday Tips!

As promised, this week is ALL about Spring cleaning.  For those of you who don’t get to experience spring in April, hang in there!  I’m sure warmer days are just around the corner for you.  For everyone else, can we all breathe a collective sigh of relief that the sunshine has returned?  I just love being able to work with the windows open!

Alright, enough day dreaming, let’s get to it!

Spring seems to light a little fire in all of us that it’s time not only to dust the cobwebs off of our beach gear but it’s also time to get our house feeling fresh, clean and ready for the warmer days!  I’ve got some simple tips to help you get going this Spring.

{one}  Lemons.  I could end the post after this one tip because lemons are just that good.  I use them EVERYWHERE when I clean.  For instance :: If my dishes need a little sprucing up and the normal scrubby isn’t doing it, I half a lemon, sprinkle a little baking soda on the fruit and use it to scrub the dishes followed by the countertops.  AND don’t you dare throw lemon peelings away!  Put them in your disposal and run it with a little hot water for an instant kitchen refresh!  So handy!

{two} Shark it! My house is 90% tile flooring so mopping is a beast.  My life was forever changed the day we got a Shark pocket steamer. If you have any type of hard surface flooring, I highly recommend this product.  No sticky residue, no strong smells, just straight up clean.  I do dab a bit of lemon essential oil on the cleaning pad when I use it to fill my home with a fresh scent to go with the fresh feel since there are no cleaning solutions used with the Shark.  It truly is a lifesaver.

{three} FlyLady. Overwhelmed?  I know the feeling.   The best thing to remember about cleaning is that the house didn’t get dirty all in one day so it doesn’t make sense to clean it all in one day.  Enter Fly Lady.  No nonsense advice that gets you to a clean house and keeps you there.  I don’t follow Fly Lady daily but any time I find myself overwhelmed with where my house is, I plug into the site, follow the steps, and get back on top of things.  I know multiple people that follow the Fly Lady program religiously and, let me just tell you, I love going to their houses.  Not just because they are always clean, but because they are comfortably clean… you following me?  There was no rushing around, stuffing things in drawers, and lighting a million candles in hopes that no one notices the protruding clothes hamper.  It’s balanced and managed.

Alright friends, I hope these tips get you off to a great spring cleaning start!  I’d love to hear you chime in with cleaning tips of your own so leave them in the comments!

 

:: And be sure to check out all my friends who are sharing Thursday Tips on their blogs as well ::

{p.s. neither Fly Lady nor Shark have any idea that I wrote this post, or who I am, or that I use their products.  I simply shared because I like them. :)}

Apr 01/11 Inspiration | Walking on Sunshine

It’s Friday!  Lindsey, here, with your Friday inspiration fix.  Summer is getting close and it’s the perfect time to break out the dresses, sunglasses and of course…lots of color! Yellow is my favorite color, so it’s the inspiration for my board this week. I chose darker colors (grey and blue) with pops of sunshine yellow. It keeps the color palette from being too bright, but is still refreshing. If you…

Yellow is my favorite color, so it’s the inspiration for my board this week. I chose darker colors (grey and blue) with pops of sunshine yellow. It keeps the color palette from being too bright, but is still refreshing.

If you create your own inspiration board with a “pop” of color, post a comment with the link. We would love to see what you’ve created!
