Making life easier!


I have realized that my hectic schedule and craving desire to appear "together" has led to an epiphany; and mid life crisis. Life just needs to be easier! As Julia Roberts said in Eat, Love, Pray, " I am not asking for life to be easy, I am just asking for it to not be so hard!" This statement resonated with me. As a designer I am trying to create a beautiful lifestyle, but why does it need to be hard? 
The AB HOME Interiors new Home and lifestyle blog are expected to go live by October 1st, but to save appearances, I will tell you that reality tells me it will probably be closer to the first week of October. My goal with this new blog is nothing short of miracle. My life has always been hectic, and most likely always will be. Because I demand things to be simple,  appear effortless, but always look fabulous, my new blog will focus on all things fabulous but EASY! Life should not be difficult. There is already too much chaos in our lives. We need more bliss, and more joy and this blog will leave you feeling as if the simple things really do matter, and make life better! I want all of you to live in each moment, and to live your bliss. And it is important to me that everyone who reads this blog lives a glamourous lifestyle, in an uncomplicated elementary way. In the meantime as we get it "together" leave us your thoughts.
 What brings bliss into your life? 
How could your life be easier? 
What could you use to be more simple?

  2. This really spoke to me - I actually started my blog as a creative outlet from a stressful (sometimes too-serious) job, but I sometimes feel I maybe just kept adding to my to-do list! ;) I love your idea of embracing simple-but-lovely...so instead of giving up on fun or creative outlets, just make it simpler! (and more blissful :))

  4. My problem is trying to cram 2 days into one! Sound familiar? I always want everything to be perfect and organized, and that isn't going to happen in the real world.
    Look forward to seeing everything. Take your time. We will wait.
    Have nice evening, Amanda.

  5. I'm definitely looking forward to your new blog! Being creative brings me bliss. Really, i would definitely rather paint a wall instead of sleep. However, since i have a baby, getting some sleep has been high on my list(so i may have to prioritize when it comes to "painting a wall" for example). My life would be easier if i didn't challenge myself so much, and let things be sometimes. xx

  7. The new blogs sounds exciting.

    Bliss right now means being productive with limited time. I think having better organization is a must for me.

  8. I'm a perfectionist, so I make things waaay harder for myself most of the time. I pay much attention to detail as well, therefore getting caught up almost always. I care very much about everyone and everything so I pour more than 100% into everything. Long story short, I enjoy over all well thought out spaces, interiors and effort into materials. That's what makes a gorgeous space. Then when I see a picture of a perfectly designed room, with imperfect styling (like an unmade bed, un poofed pillow, stuff stacked in stylish bins...and yet it's published...it makes design and decorating real and inspiring again. I can't wait to see what you new adventure has to offer :) XO, Kelly

  9. i would say more time in each day, but since that's not possible, i'll just say ways to make my day more efficient. i'm happy to be so busy, but there's never enough time in each day to do everything! to be honest, i'm sure a healthier lifestyle would work WONDERS for me now . . .

    hope you're well, friend!

  10. Oh such tantalizing questions. What brings bliss into my life? I dont know if I ever experience "true" bliss but certainly the laughter of my 18 mo old grandson when his grandpa tickles him. But I find daily enjoyment in a beautiful sunrise or sunset, a lovely garden, a walk through Coronado or just smelling the change of seasons. How could my life be easier? One simple answer....more free time to just sit, read, walk the beach with my husband. I long for that! I want everything to be simpler from buying a new telephone to installing a new tv to shopping for groceries to figuring out how to download pics and email them! Very provocative post and I look forward to other's answers.

  15. When it comes to metallic high heels, Christian Louboutin Flatsmany women only think of evening shoes. It's understandable, given that gold, silver, pewter, and bronze are all great choices for making an entrance at a more formal event. But, if you love metallic shoes and tend to save Jimmy Choo Shoesthem only for special occasions, then you may want to rethink your strategy: metallic high heel sandalsJimmy Choo Boots can work as well for day wear as they do for evenings. Of course, there are some caveats. For one thing, evening shoes are still evening shoes -- too glamorous, and they'll be out of place for most daylight events. Save those red-carpet-type picks for real special occasions. On the other hand, if you come across a pairJimmy Choo Pumps of high heel sandals that, in any other color, you'd wear with your favorite shorts, jeans, skirts or dresses, and those shoes happen to be offered in metallic finishes, then don't shy away from them. Instead, remind yourself how versatile gold, silver, and other metallics are, and then use them to dress up your favorite casual outfit, or to take any slightly-dressy outfit to a whole new level. Jimmy Choo SandalsFor example, these particular sandals would look great with skinny jeans and a tank, but they'd also look fantastic paired with your favorite little black dress.
