In the middle of a busy Tuesday going in and out of meetings, I got two reminders of the importance of setting the right mood in your space.
I walked into an office and it was like I walked through a portal and into a a completely different building. The cold wide hospital-esque hallways suddenly gave way to this cozy office with warm lighting, a pleasant scent and inspiring art.
Later on that day, I walked into the restroom in another department and realized I had been using the wrong restroom this whole time. I should've been sneaking down the hallway to use this cute little bathroom with a lovely fragrance, warm lighting and homey accessories.
My brief exposure to these two curated spaces gave me a mental break from the busy day I was having and allowed me to enjoy a moment of relaxation.
Needless to say I was at the store today getting some candles and other types of fragrances to keep all around my home. I need to do something about my work space next.
I got two candles; a sweet pea pomegranate by dw home from TJmaxx and glade cashmere woods candles from Walmart, and they smell ah-mazing!!! Can't wait to light them.

I am a firm believer in accessorizing; I love what a statement necklace or a silk scarf can do to an outfit. Accessories have the ability to complement, complete and even convert a look.

And sometimes, 'later' never comes and every time you look at your space, or see something in passing at a store, you tell yourself "I'll get to it". Truth is if you're still not ready to "get to it", this may not help you much. But if you are open, here are a few tips on taking steps to 'accessorize your space'...
