Spring is almost here and I like to take this time to do little changes around the house.    So in my typical style, I wanted to take you on a tour of the few changes I've made.

Some of the changes involved new things, and others involve rearranging stuff I already have.  In addition to what's below I also love to add fresh flowers to the dining room and kitchen.  It reminds me of what is right around the way. 

[Wall Decor] 
I like to make sure the walls in my home are covered with things I love.  I recently found this lion head at Ross and I knew it would look great in my home.   It represents me as a Leo and the lion is my favorite animal anyways so it worked out perfect.

 [New Blankets]
I like to get new throw pillows, blankets, etc. in the Spring so I found this gorgeous leopard print blanket for in my woman cave and it goes perfect with the bench, white faux fur throw and pillow, and the overall girlyness of my room!

[Closet Refresh]
I reorganized and rearranged my closet so that it's even easier for me to dress for the nicer weather coming our way. I don't know about you but my life is made when I can easily find the stuff I need especially in the morning when I have to get ready for work.

[New Candles]
I love candles and I love Spring scents so it's no surprise that I'm embracing the coming season with the wonderful scent of new candles from Bright Endeavors.  Their signature glass candles are perfect for making the whole house smell amazing!   I've been burning Lavender Sprig to help me relax in the evenings after work and Vanilla Honey because who doesn't feel cheerful when they smell vanilla and honey?! Plus Bright Endeavors is lighting the path out of poverty for adolescent moms in Chicago through a paid job-training program.  Each signature glass candle is handcrafted and signed by participants on a path towards professional success, one hundred percent of the proceeds go to participants who are not only learning job skills to gain independence, but also understanding their place in the broader world, how they fit into their communities, and how they can have an impact on the world. 

And guess what!!! You guys can enter to win a signature glass candle of your choice in the below giveaway from Bright Endeavors! Good luck!
