Now I Breathe

& Focus On What I Love

Home Decor Fabulous Finds

Home décor is my thing! Working in the design field has afforded me the excuse to spend a lavish amount money over the past few decades creating beautiful homes. And whyever not? Our immediate surroundings are our sanctuary.  Here are some fabulous finds that I LOVE!

Accent Chair

Surround yourself with luxury items sprinkled throughout your home


While the practice of using aromatherapy has widely been debunked, I feel rejuvenated when I am around amazing scents!  
Here are some of my favorites.

Find your focus with amazing fragrances - never too strong, never too sweet

Travel Must Haves

Any time I fly, I have a typical ensemble that never fails me.  Boots for walking, a zippered shoulder tote for all of my carry-on items, a long duster to keep me warm, skinny jeans with just enough stretch for comfort and a soft sleep mask so I can rest.
Let’s travel!

Be prepared to go where you want, when you want, & do what you want to do - Always

Things I'm Loving Right Now

The Florida bug has bitten me hard!  I love living in such a tropical area with blue skies and palm trees for miles.  That said, I have surrounded myself with beachy & simple elements.  Check out these items that I highly recommend!

White Clutch Tote Shoulder Bag

Potted Bright Colored Bromeliad

Do what you want and you'll never work a day in your life.
Be where you want to be & you'll be happy for the rest of your life.

Things Keeping Me Busy

Do you have an inquisitive mind?  I sure do! If I don’t have a project piquing my interest, I’m flat bored. If I’m bored, I may just watch the same movies over and over again… not that that would be a bad thing. Here are some things that I’m “into” right now.  

Bucket List

Oh yeah – Bora Bora. 
This place has been on my bucket list forever.  I’m kind of feeling like I need to put a check in this box very soon!

If you think this is just a purse, think again. I would love to have a Birkin bag! This pink one would suit me just fine. 


Santorini will probably be my next big vacation stop.  In fact I am wagering it will be.
The big question is how I will get there, by ship or by plane. Either way, it will be fabulous!

I'm Still A Work In Progress

These Lifestyle blogs all seem to showcase a perfect life with everything wrapped up in a neat little package. 

It’s not. I’m not perfect, in fact I’m just a work in progress.  But I know what I want to achieve & I have a lot to share.
