My colors are blush and bashful

Gotta a little facelift around here and I must say I'm pretty pleased.  It's simple, clean, and if I don't say so myself, mighty good looking.  I'll admit, the color scheme isn't always my favorite but this one is --heart eyed emoji X 6--.  I love black and white together almost always and pink with it is sometimes...eh.  Once I saw it and knew this was a winning look I couldn't help but smile for Shelby from Steel Magnolias, hence the blog title.

"The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize"-Steel Magnolias for the win again!


I needed to freshen up around here.  It's great to digitally declutter, revamp, and enjoy something new.  Much like a home, closet, or your car it's like you can just breathe better with that new-new.  I went with a new layout, colors, bio, and updated gadgets and verbiage til my little heart found contentment.  I'll maybe tweak a bit more but I'm quite relieved to have my space alive and well.

Ohgabetta, you beautiful doll, you!  I can't wait to spend more time together.

What a timely topic to write about, seeing as its Sunday, and I LOVE Sundays! They make me very happy. Lots of things make me happy though. I am so thankful to say that!

Time Blocking

When I worked in corporate world, I learned the art of time blocking. Actually, in middle and high school this concept was introduced through classes being structured to a similar schedule; we had A and B days and instead of taking 6 classes every day for a shorter duration, we took three each day, alternating which three, for longer periods of time.  To surmise, I’ve implemented this approach for well over 20 years now!  #YouKnowHowIKnowYoureInYour30s #YouReferenceThingsIn20YearIncrements. Anyhowwww...since I transitioned to work for myself from home, I’ve created a time blocking schedule here as well. It’s typically much more flexible than any other time blocking I’ve been part of, but it’s a good system. When you know what you’re going to do or at least have an idea to begin your day, I find it works well and let’s me start out focused even on days I wake up feeling less than on my game. It’s funny looking back, I never realized in 7th grade block classes, it would begi

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T. While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”. Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration: Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better. Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See w
