This past weekend I had my birthday! Yay! I typically hate birthdays, because there are all these massive expectations for the day and I really hate having attention on me. So, it’s a double edged sword. I want to be surprised and have it something amazing, but I also don’t want all of the attention and pressure to be super excited about what I was gifted. Ah! I know these are silly problems to have. This year I decided to take a little me time and spent the day having a massage in the morning then tea and thrifting with Jon, a mani/pedi and then dinner with my family. It was lovely! I saw my sisters over the weekend and they always spoil me. My main gift from them and my brother in law was a custom neon sign for my studio! I have always wanted one, but I had never pulled the trigger! So, now I need to decide what saying to put on the neon sign! Ah! Decisions are the worst!
Originally I always thought I wanted it to be, Treat Yo’ Self. I love the saying and feature weekly items I would love to treat my self too on the blog. I also love that it’s from Park & Rec’s.
We came up with a couple more sayings:
All the things: I think it’s a cute saying and tend to say it a lot. Don’t we all want, All the things, especially when it comes to pretty home decor items.
More is more: I will never be a minimalist. Too many things bring me way too much joy. I also like the attitude that you should have more is more in your decor style, but also in your life. Allow yourself to indulge.
Make Today Lovely: Just a positive affirmation to remind me to pause and make today lovely and also works design wise because you should take time to decorate your home and make all of your days lovely.
Treat Yo Self: Still a contender for the reasons above. I think it would look cute above the kitchenette, but also look cute over the fabric library.
I love the idea of a sign with the word, Color, in it, but Live Colorfully is a Kate Spade saying and More color, please isCarrie Colbert’s saying. I’m at a loss with something fun with the word color.
I recently though of, Be bold. Be colorful. I’m liking it, but I think I need a new Be _______.
Anyway, long enough story, but I need help! Leave a comment or email me, message me on social media and give me your suggestions! I’m stumped!
