Wellness Wednesday- Hope and Growth

As we approach the season after Christmas, a new tone is set on how the rest of the year will play out.  With the crimson and gold colors of Christmas put away and stored in our garages, a new color tone emerges that brings forth Hope and Growth.   The pantone color “Arcadia”, is a modern take on green with a hint of blue undertone.  With the sense of Hope arising, we are more optimistic and confident that whatever we put our hearts into, it will be received well and nourished and will grow into something bigger and better than what we can imagine.

Where Hope Grows Miracles Can Blossom

Add a splash of Arcadia to your daily life and see your mood be uplifted.  Use it in your floral arrangement, add a piece of Arcadia coloring to your wardrobe, just for fun, add it to your baking.  Spread this encouraging color, to friends and families.  It is a sanctuary color that plays a key role this Spring.  A little bit of Hope and Growth can go a long way this 2018.

 

We Decided On Forever

Here’s to another chance to Pop the Bubbly after New Years.  With the months of November through February, you could be the lucky couple that gets to pop the bubbly twice and say Yes!

We are in full swing in Engagement Season and by checking your Facebook, Twitter, Snap chat and Instagram feeds you can see the different rings and proposals captured.  The latest celebrity engagement went to Paris Hilton and Chris Zylka.  Paris Hilton’s 20 carat pear shaped engagement ring was the talk on social media.  Like Paris Hilton, we all want our special moment in the spotlight when it comes to our engagement.

We have our Personalized Wood Treasure Map Chest Box that will have you set sail on an adventure of a lifetime.  

Have pictures printed out of the both of you from places you traveled.  You can include airline tickets.  Include them in a photo album or place them in frames to display.  

Find some black foam and cut off a small piece to be inserted inside the treasure chest.  Insert your ring so it fits snuggly.  

If you want to add a bit more excitement to the proposal, try putting together a treasure hunt using photos, airline tickets, and any sentimental items.  Have the treasure chest with the ring be the “treasure” on the X on your map. When she finds the treasure box, surprise her by asking “Will you marry me”?

 

 

Make sure to include your friends and family members in the proposal.  With the excitement and planning going on you can forget to capture this big day.  Hire a professional “Proposal Expert” to help you capture this moment or have a friend or family member photograph and videotape the proposal.  

Keep an eye out for next week’s post for our second part wedding proposal idea.  

Wellness Wednesday- Life simplified

In this day and age we try so hard to simplify our lives by buying up time. Things change in a moments notice, yet we have made it more complicated by simplifying so much we misunderstand one another.    With more time, we only give time to things that are not impactful.  When things tend to be simple and made easy, we forget how to push and challenge ourselves to do better in communicating with one another,   When we don’t stretch our character and abilities, we lose the will and purpose of life.  Life then becomes mundane and not so interesting and we turn outwards to others for happiness instead of being able to turn inward to find happiness.  Life is made simple when we let go of any “overindulgence”, and that includes “time”.

Wellness Wednesday – Welcome 2018

Happy 2018! 

Last year was a year full of surprises in so many ways.  Most of us are still recovering and trying to make sense of all the events.  Sometimes trying to make sense of what cannot be explained can be frustrating.  Life is full of surprises all the time and when things cannot be explained with human reasoning we just have to have Faith and let Faith do the explaining.   With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season winding down, we can catch our breath and have a brief moment of stillness.  Take advantage of this stillness to do a mind and body detox.  Get rid of things or thoughts that are making you restless so that your mind and body can have space to be filled with things that motivates you and create change in you and others.
