Thank you, Viewbug!
Something to take into the new year: In order to be successful, one must pay attention to rational thoughts and practice positive thinking. We must surround ourselves with successful individuals that put things into perspective and add happiness to daily life—individuals that do not feed on negative energy and will be the light through darkness. Monumental things happen to those who work hard at a better life, and believe. xo
As always, I am honored.

Laura has won the 2014 Grammy award for Best New Age Album, and continues to pull us into her brilliant style -- the composition is breathtaking, to say the least. The album cover, a colorful array of love as she feels it.
The title tell listeners to breathe in, relax, enjoy and feast on every sound coming through, and we do attentively. How could one not? The instruments carry you to another place and time. A place that fills us with new age, but on a more personal level, instrumentally with a touch of angelic vocals that certainly sooth one's soul.
I cannot say that I have a single favorite, because after listening in my Audi during a trip to NYC, I have come to adore each piece for a different reason. I am certain that you will, as well.
Aside from travel, this relaxing CD is perfect for romance on the beach, a dinner party, relaxing with friends, or simply "Just because". I am a huge fan of Blank and Jones and their musical style that relaxes me from inside out. I also adore Enya. Add Laura to this quaint list, and you have some of the best music out there--music that is romance. Music that brings the body back for more.
I recommend this romantic CD to anyone seeking music that goes above and beyond any expectations.
p.s. thank you for the signed copy!

Photographs from a recent visit to New Orleans. There is something about the city that captures every part of me. I love being there. I love capturing it's essence.
Dreamwork's How To Train Your Dragon is the perfect theme for any age!
If you don't have room in or outside your home to host a lot of children, think about finding the perfect venue. You are going to want to find a kid-friendly venue that may have some sort of outdoor area to allow the children to join in on outdoor party games. You can even rent a water slide or a bouncy for them to enjoy. On a side note, it helps the children relieve some of the energy they have, and saves you from a lot of indoor noise.
When looking for a venue, think about a bowling alley or local pizza place (if you don't mind skipping out on the outdoor fun). Those sorts of places will assist in the decorating and possibly provide balloons and other party decor. It's not going to be cheap. so you may want to re-think the party at home.
Once you've decided on a place to host your party, it's time to get those invitations out. Depending on the age of your child, you could sit them down and have them make cute invitations for all their friends. You can even have them make one full-sized invite and print out as many copies as you may need. They can do it at the table (you will need to scan the finished product) or they can do it with software or online at a site. Either way, it will give you more time to decide on a cake!
As far as paper supplies for your party, if your dragon cake is green, simply buy napkins and plates that match or accent your other items. You can do this with balloons, as well. If anything, it will save you a bit of money in the end.
(Note: There's excellent concept pages, full of unique and exciting "Dragon Party-themed" party decorations! Check them out on Pinterest!)
As far as other decorations, you can be as creative as you like. The cake can be a mountain lava cake, with tiny dragons around the base. There are plenty of party stores that offer " How To Train Your Dragon" supplies, and just by stepping in the aisle, your creative side will kick in, and before you know it, you are loading everything you need into your trunk, with a smile.
Party Favor Ideas: Paperback books from the movie. Dragon erasers, pencils, and so on. Look for these at local party stores or online.
Food Ideas: Dragon Balls (Meatballs with food coloring). .. and so on! Be creative, good luck, and have fun!
Choosing an accent chair is much easier than you thought!
If you do have an accent wall, you may want to think of a chair that does not sink into that wall, by being the exact same color.
Choose light colors that liven up the other walls and make your chair stand out. Although, a chair with a variety of colors AND the color of your accent wall, definitely works. If anything, you can always go a bit further and choose a paint that fits and go from there. Many local hardware and paint stores have color swatches that you can take home and work with.
Once you decide where your chair is going to be placed, it is time to choose that perfect chair. You are going to want to consider size, comfort, price, material, and style. You may also want to decide whether you prefer arms or not. Arms are a great addition to an accent chair and hold whatever is placed on the chair much better. On a side note, you can choose a decorative pillow (it does not have to match anything else in the room) to place on the chair. I have found that some people assume that a lot of things in life have to match, but they truly don't. Be creative, create your own style, and simply be yourself.
*Have you thought about antique or even second hand? What a wonderful DIY project, where you can refinish grandmother's old chair and make it stand out once more. And what a wonderful way to fill your home with memories and presence.
You can find many stores that sell accent chairs, it is just a bit of foot work. In the end, when you have what you have been looking for, you will be glad you invested the time. Online research, referrals from friends and family are always other options.
There are so many styles out there, it simply depends on your taste. I have a few accent chairs in my home, and believe it or not, they don't match any other furniture and it works! Good luck on finding and placing that wonderful addition to your room!

Montagne Jeunesse Manuka Honey Peel Off or Black Seaweed
A week or so ago, I received a free sample of Montagne Jeunesse's Black Seaweed Peel Off mask. I was extremely excited to try this product because it has been awhile since I have used a peel off of any kind, and I was ready to start seeking out a new product.
I really don't battle with dry or oily skin, and have an easy time keeping my face clear. I prefer peel off masks over other types of masks, because you get better control and coverage, when applying directly to your face. Also, I feel there are more varieties when choosing a peel off.
I opened the product and noticed that it had enough mask to spread over my face and neck in a thick layer. I noticed the clean scent and already, I began to smile. (I did notice that after applying, I had black areas around my fingernails that took a bit longer to scrub off.)
I began spreading a layer over my nose and cheeks, where I started to feel a burning sensation. I knew that there would be no way that I could attempt to wait for the mask to dry, before peeling it off--the burning was much to unbearable. I started to rinse it off as fast as I could, but it seemed too slimy and didn't appear to be coming off. After trying for about a minute, I grabbed a face towel, placed it under warm water, and began wiping as fast as possible.
My face became red from the experience, and although I appreciate the free sample, I do not think I will try this brand's seaweed masks again. On a side note, I am still open to their other peel off products.
On a good note, now that my face has had about a 1/2 hour of rest, I can feel the pores have tightened and my face does feel fresh and clean. #freesample #mjpeeloffs
