What are you up to this weekend?
Happy Friday :)

Be In The Moment

I have had to go back to the drawing board with my life journey many times. I aim to thrive and not merely survive... To live and not just exist. But life happens. And we all go through phases where we are simply going through our days and feeling empty meanwhile.

I find it challenging at times to be in the moment. Especially in this day and age where it's mostly about  getting the perfect photo. Everything is a 'thing', and there are so many goals to achieve.

I go to battle with myself at times. Reminding and forcing myself to simplify and savour each day. It's so easy to get caught up in the past, the future and trends. It's an ongoing battle to not get caught up in all the buzz of life, while today slips by.

There is a lot of beauty in life to see, feel and experience. But we have to slow down to see it. Today, the moment you have now, was once the future. And it shapes the past and memories that it will be a part of tomorrow.

So enjoy the taste and smell of your meal today. Be grateful for your home and the good people in your life. Don't let the good things in life just pass you by, because you are too busy to notice them.

Be in the moment and treasure your today.


Happy Thursday!

Love,
Summer

8 Clever Cleaning Hacks That Will Make You Look Like A Genius

I am always looking for ways to make cleaning easier. I love keeping my home clean. But when it comes around to time for dusting, doing laundry and overall cleaning, it can be pretty hectic without having a few tricks up your sleeve. I already have a few of my own. And I am adding more to my box of tricks. Here are 8 clever ideas that will make you look and feel like a genius.

#1 Use a lint roller to remove dust.


#2 Use DIY lavender laundry sponges in your dryer to make your clothes smell fabulous.

#3 Let your blender clean itself. Put water and dish soap in the blender and turn it on for a few seconds. Rinse with more water. Voila- clean blender!

#4 Use liquid shower gel instead of soap. This prevents the build of soap scum in your shower and tub.


#5 When baking or handling dough, cover your counter with foil or plastic wrap to allow for an easy clean up.


#6 Use vinegar and baking soda to clean your oven.


#7 Put a plastic bag filled with vinegar around your shower head to get rid of stains.

#8 Put bleach in a spray bottle and use it to spray your shower walls to get rid of the grimiest grout in your bathroom.

Have you been doing any of these? Have any tips and tricks of your own to share?

Hubby and I used to dread cleaning the shower. But #4 and #8 have really been a life and time saver for us. I am also excited to try #3.


Hope you find these ideas handy!


Love,
Summer

Introvert Or Extrovert: Which One Are You?


If you are an introvert, you require a good amount of alone time to gain energy and be happy. On the other hand, extroverts gain energy from social interactions and stimulating events.

Personality Traits Of An Extrovert
You like to talk. Silence isn't really your thing.
You need to be around people constantly to feel good.
You like being a leader and working with groups.
You make friends easily.
You love variety.


Personality Traits Of An Introvert
Solitude plays an important part in your happiness.
You crave silence and don't like small talk.
Variety makes you feel exhausted.
You are a very friendly person, who prefers to be approached first.
You will lead a group if you have to. But you can't wait to be done with the project to get some alone time.
Which one are you? I am an introvert :)

Happy Tuesday!

Love,
Summer

P.S. Thanks for all the birthday wishes. I had a quiet and wonderful day :)
