TIPS & TRICKS FOR HANGING ART IN YOUR HOME

When my husband and I purchased our 1st home 2 years ago, I was over the moon excited for the home decorating process! I have always dreamed of spending my time choosing color palettes, fixtures, and furniture to turn our house into a home that we would love and be proud of.

Our home contains 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, and 2 living areas. For me, that was a lot of ground to cover as far as decor was concerned. I knew that I absolutely wanted to have a thoughtful process with my decorating decisions. Plus the Virgo in me needed each room to be the perfect reflection of our lifestyle and personalities.

CASUAL FRIDAY

What do you normally wear on ‘Casual Fridays’ at work? Most companies give the okay for jeans and more relaxed looks and while I am always for that, I still tend to follow my own dress code and lean towards a more polished look. For me, this means no denim with holes at the knees, no flip flops, and no tank tops. The obvious stuff. Each company culture is different however, but here’s an example of what I’ve worn on a casual Friday minus the heels. I prefer a nude pair of flats during the day. The heels would be something I’d change into if hubby and I decide to meet up for date night right after work.

WORK WEEK SHOPPING

I’m finishing up my 2nd work week with my new agency and things have been going great! As you all know with the start of a new job, most days are packed with meeting new faces, learning new policy’s and procedures, the in’s and out’s of your new role, along with a slew of other things. Between that and maintaining things at home, I’ve been busy. Some days may even feel like a blur, but I’ve been doing a really great job at staying organized throughout the process. With all that’s going on the last thing I want to be worried about is what I’m going to wear to the office that day. With a new office comes a slightly different culture and while most state agencies implement business/business casual attire, it can definitely vary with where you are.

UPDATE: PROFESSIONAL GOALS

I hope you all are doing well this work week! I am so motivated and geared up because this is a very exciting time for me! Back in January, I made a post about my professional goals. In it I shared all about my process and making it a priority to set these goals for the year. Any time of the year is a great time to self-evaluate; however for me personally, I prefer having a clean slate of the new year to motivate and push me into execution of bringing those goals into fruition. That means getting clear about what I want, getting organized, creating a plan, setting deadlines, and finally following through.
