Dream Closets

Every time I visit one of my favorite stores, I always wonder if I could display my clothes, jewelry, shoes and bags in a similar fashion.  Of course I can, why not? I ordered myself a few items from Amazon, and organized my closet!! Love organizing, I found so many pieces that I had forgotten!! Now that I have my closet organized, I can actually wear everything I like, and give away anything I do not!! I’m sharing some of my closet organization tips with you:

#1: Sort by category: I sort my clothes by tops, skirts, dresses, jeans, cardigans, blazers, & other.

#2: Sort by Color & shades: I start with black, grey, white, pink, red, orange, yellow, green, brown, etc.

#3: Invest in Good Hangers: I use a uniform set of felt hangers so my clothes do not slip off and fall on the floor. The same hangers also give a very clean look to the closet.

                                               

#4: Fold chunky sweaters: I fold sweaters by size, largest at the bottom, to stack them on shelves for easy access.  (PS: you can spray paint the shelves any color!!)

                                        

#5: Categorize shoes: I use stack-able shoe boxes to save space and protect my shoes from dust.  Marilyn Monroe once said “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” So go on, protect your shoes, wear them, and take over the world!!

                            

#6: Organize Purses/Bags: I keep my designer bags in original packaging, or stuff them with bubble wrap, or dust bags to maintain their shape.

                                         

#7: Display Jewelry: I organize my jewelry in separate compartments for easy access and keep the jewels sparkling!!  It’s so easy to tangle your necklaces, mix up your earrings, and forget about those pieces at the bottom of the box.  These compartment boxes keep them all separately displayed.

               

How about a sunglasses organizer?

#8: Highlight Favorites: I showcase some of my favorite pieces on my dresser, or closet shelves for inspiration.  Some of these pieces are presents from special people in my life, and seeing them on display makes me happy!!

    

I hope these tips were helpful!!  How do you organize your closet?

Self Care

Self care is a very important part of your life.  You probably already know that but here I am still talking about different ways of Self Care: exercising, eating healthy, meditating, and relaxing.  I discovered this new mat and pillow set on Amazon the other day to add to my relaxation process.

How do I use it?

1. Neck Pain Relief: We sit while driving, working, watching TV, using our phones, and all the other time.  To relieve neck pain, I lay on this mat for 10 minutes.  The acupressure from the mat & pillow releases endorphins that block pain and relaxes neck muscles.

2.  Back Pain Relief: Slouching in chairs, lounging on couches, and sitting in traffic for a long period of time can harm our natural posture.  This could result in back pain and stiffness. To relieve back pain, lay on this mat for 10-15 minutes to massage pressure points that help release tight muscles and reduce stiffness.

3. Increase Circulation: Individuals invest thousands of dollars and hours in obtaining acupuncture treatments.  This mat allows you to incorporate regular acupressure & massage to your daily routine.

Please read instructions in the package prior to using.
