One of the most common wedding misconceptions: The venue is the most important thing you should worry about, when planning your wedding.
People mistakenly believe it will be their biggest cost and the most important decision when planning their wedding. I would agree it is one of the most important things, however, the time of year, the destination (or a country where the wedding will take place) and the wedding planner or the company who will coordinate everything and find all the suppliers for the wedding are much more important things.
My own wedding planning experience shows that your venue can be anything or anywhere. You can make an old hallway look magical if you have the right team of people. In fact, even a live music band can create more atmosphere than the venue itself. People will remember a lot of things, and your venue walls won't be the first thing they will remember, unless your wedding venue is along the sea coast for example or in the mountains where the breathtaking view provides natural decoration. #naturalcolors#nofilter📷
💫10 MINUTE DE-CLUTTER💫
Make Monday’s #minutesforme something that helps you to be/get organised, or improves the tidiness/cleanliness of your home. It’s a great way to start the week.
Today I’m suggesting you... attack ‘that’ drawer. I’ve attacked my huge bedside drawer (not very insta-friendly!) but it can be any drawer which has essentially become a dumping ground.
Take the drawer out and empty it’s contents somewhere you can easily sort through it all. Take wipes to give it a clean, a bag for rubbish and a bag for charity or recycling.
Re-patriate lost items, consider the true value of sentimental items (can you just say ‘thank you’ for them, then send them to their next home?), store away duplicates and just have a general refresh and tidy.
Here we go.... I’ve been FirBitless for months now. This Flex is less of what I want, but probably all that I need right now. I’m sure it will meet my needs just fine.... besides, the price was right! You know what else is priced just right? The Senior menu at iHop! Again, less of what I wanted, but all that I really needed. First time ordering off the Senior Menu, even though I could have done it a few years ago. 🤷♀️ Why’d I wait so long? #fitbitflex#gettingstepsinagain#seniormenu#seniormenuatihop#lessismore#lessismore2018#whydiwaitsolong
I so feel this today!! This juicing thing is hard!! But I’ve always been able to do hard things for a short amount of time ha ha! If you saw my kitchen right now you would know that i just can’t do it all!! I was so going to get down on myself for not having the energy to clean it up before work. Then i thought NO I’m awesome I’m doing a juice cleanse, I went to the store, I prepped dinner and I’ll be teaching my students in a few hrs I can have a messy kitchen!! We just can’t have it all, well unless you have a maid which I do not. So yes I can do anything just not everything and that’s ok! #theshineproject#bethebestyoucanbe#icandohardthings#gettingitdone#juicecleanse#quotesaboutlife

It’s amazing what getting rid of 1/4 of your clothes will accomplish in your closet!!! And if your not that gutsy like my fabulous client was yesterday then just keep what fits and what you love, even if you haven’t worn it in 6 months but the question your asking yourself is do I love wearing it? You should have a hard time getting dressed in the morning because you love everything in your closet not because you have nothing to wear!!! #simplifyyourlife#getridofit#closetorganization#makeitgreat#lessismorewardrobe#keepwhatmakesyouhappy

National Women’s Day huh??? Well... lol ... here is to all the women out there who can wake up fresh face and their “man” can still recognize them 🤷🏽♀️ #cheers#lessismore2018#freshface
That time I used to care about what people thought of me. Fragile and emotionally unstable - wondering if I’d ever be enough. When one day something happened that changed everything. I fell in love - falling in love allows you to see life from different perspective. He’d say I’m beautiful and smart, I’d reject it by saying no you’re just saying what I want to hear 🙄 he persisted though - a mission set out to teach me how to love myself. They say that one can’t love another if you don’t know how to love yourself - I couldn’t give love for the longest time because I couldn’t love myself first. But with his help I learnt to do exactly that. Every part I hated I truly embraced, I loved me - my every imperfection beautiful created in God’s image. The world can go fuck itself.
He taught me that. My advice to you is - find people who set out to make you better, who encourage you to be the best of who you can be. If that circle you’re in makes you feel inadequate Get out and get out soon. It’s amazing how people can influence us in such a way that it can either make or break you. Be weary of the friends who tell you to give up your dreams ... be weary of those who tell you you’re not good enough. They’re not the ones who want to see you win.
Ok, I get it this is a little heavy for a Monday morning post and very cliche because every second person. here talks about self love - but it’s the truth, it’s about time we let go of that insecurities that keep us from being who we need to be. We’re living in the 21st century for goodness sake - the best time to be alive in actual fact. So on that note :) hope your week is full of love and light ❤️ only that and nothing less ————————————————————————⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Quotes I’m Pondering...‼️ #Integrity is the only path where you will not get lost... “One does not accumulate but eliminate. It is not daily increase but daily decrease. The height of cultivation always runs to simplicity.” ~ Bruce Lee “It is vain to do with more what can be done with less.” ~ William of Ockham
If your kitchen lacks storage space, take advantage of the vertical space on the back of your cabinet doors. @thecontainerstore sells a variety of adhesive containers that work perfectly for this! Command hooks would be another great option for hanging things like measuring cups and measuring spoons. Don’t let a small space get in the way of your organizational goals!

If you have a deep freezer that is impossible to keep organized, these multipurpose bins from @thecontainerstore have been life changing! We freeze a ton of produce over the summer to use all year long, but the bags were constantly getting buried. The bins allow me to store like with like, as well as store the bags upright. No more frostbitten fingers searching through the bottom of the freezer! 🤗

The first thing I do when I get home from grocery shopping is remove all the packaging from snack items like these. The bulky boxes quickly clutter up pantry space. Now it’s easier to take a quick inventory of what is already on hand before the next grocery run.

Productivity is difficult when things are cluttered and disorganized. When setting up your workstation make sure to keep close at hand the things you use regularly. You’ll stay focused and your work efficiency will increase. This before and after of my clients desk drawer is a testimony to just that!
My tidied linen closet & powder room under-sink cabinet for the #LessIsMore2018 challenge. ⏺ The linen closet before was filled with a lot of random excess products. I edited them down and was able to fit all extra product in the basket on the top! First aid supplies in the clear bins + extra paper towels. Towels + hand towels neatly folded. Wash cloths folded in a basket and a few extra hand soaps corralled in a bin. Extra sheets & blankets stored just below these shelves (not pictured). That was a huge win because I couldn't even fit the extra sheets in this closet before!! ⏺ Second picture is of the powder room storage under the sink. All random things that were piled up were tossed or placed in their proper home. I now just have a small drawer for extra hand soaps, lotion, hand towels and TP stored in a wire basket. There is so much space now!!
