For the month of October I focused on my attitude. One of my all time favorite quotes is “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it”. That has always struck me as being very significant.I had some great things to look forward to in October so it made keeping my resolutions very simple!

A Year of Happy-Passion & Design

By Something Social, Posted in Life

Hello Friends!I hope everyone had a wonderful summer and are ready to tackle the fall! I personally have mixed feelings, as I never feel the summer is long enough. I could use a few more days of 80-degree weather :)For the month of August I focused on passion. I did some soul searching to figure out what I really felt passionate about. What I discovered was Wedding design. Don’t get me wrong, I do love the coordination aspect of the planning but what really challenges me is design.I brainstormed vario... read more.

July DIY Centerpieces

Hello Centerpiece Lovers!For the past month, I have had lanterns on the mind. It could be because they fit so perfectly with summer but I knew this was the perfect month to feature one.I found this beauty at Home Goods for $16! I was originally going to just use the lantern with the flowers inside without the bud vases but I got such a beautiful arrangement of  birthday flowers from my boyfriend that I wanted to incorporate as many as possible :)I love the untraditional look of the lantern with the doo... read more.

Money affects everyone’s lives in different ways. Some people have a lot of it, some people work hard for it and others don’t give much thought to it. But one thing’s certain; the world can’t go round without it.This month I tried to understand and make some changes in my relationship with money. Below you’ll find three things I focused on:Buy Needful things: I’m the kind of person that never thinks to buy things like shampoo & conditioner in advance. Oh no, I wait un... read more.
