Closet Organization

Closet Organization

When it comes to Closet Organizaton, think about ‘easy access’. If you’re getting ready for work, you should be able to just walk up or in to your closet and find exactly what you need right away.  For work I mainly wear flats or sandals, so I placed those in bins close to the floor so I can easily  access which pair I want to wear without having to dig through piles of shoes.

I have all of my dresses sorted by style, then pants next. My pants are sorted by color so I can choose at a glance which pair will be my choice for the day.  Closet Organization - Clothes sorting

On the other side of my closet I keep my skirts and shirts. Skirts are once again sorted by color and style. My shirts are sorted by arm length. So they start off with sleeveless, then short sleeve followed by mid-length, and last long sleeves. Even though I live in Florida, I use a lot of long sleeve shirts and cardigans because the office I’m employed at is always freezing.

Closet Organization - shoe organizing

Ah shoes… The most important collection. I store my shoes as follows.. heels and special occasion shoes are stored in clear plastic bins on my shelf above my skirts. I keep my flats and sandals in larger bins, then flip flops and slippers in cloth bins which are located on top of my dresser in my closet.

Closet Organization - Shoe Storage

Since I’m short, I keep a stool handy at all times in case I need to get to items which may be placed too high for me to reach. Closet Organization - Closet StorageI also keep my jewelry in my closet so once I have my outfit on for the day, I can just reach over and grab whatever peace of jewelry goes with my outfit. Closet Organization - Jewelry

I used ‘left over’ home decor as my Jewelry storage. My bracelets are on a small vase. I used my larger vases to hang my costume jewelry on. I also used a few small wicker baskets to places my watches in.

Closet Organization - Decorative boxes

I purchased decorative boxes from Michael’s to store my swim suits, scarves and other miscellaneous items. They are very sturdy and have velcro in the front for easy access.

Closet Organization is just the first step to feeling like you have accomplish something! Next, the Home Office.!

Let’s talk candles

Let’s talk Candles

Whether it’s 10:00 am or 6:00 pm, Candles can make a room look fabulous ! When decorating my home I always incorporate Candles to almost every room, well not my son’s room. 🙂 As soon as I light them up, they give a nice soft look to the room.

I’m a huge fan of Partylite . There home decor is beautiful and there candles smell wonderful. Below are a few things from my Partylite collection.

I use them in different rooms throughout the year to give each room a different look without  spending a ton of money. I also try to host a party every once in a while to receive free products to add to my collection.

This beauty has a water fall feature, which gives a nice ambience to a room, I have placed this in my bathroom, my bedroom and also in my living room during parties or dinners.

When decorating with candles I think about what mood I’m in and add color to match!

Green is one of my favorite color, most of the time I group very earthy colors together like placing a green candle with greenery and a brown box with some white flowers in it.

One important thing when decorating is to group decor in threes.partylite candles

What I mean by that is, if you place for example a picture frame and greenery for decor, there should be one more item grouped with it, like a candle or a small picture frame.

I learned this from a home designer, she was right, I tested this out by placing two items on my night stand, it looked ok, but when I placed the third item in the group, everything just looked more uniform.
