Repatriation can be hard in any given situation. It is even harder when you are forced to leave your expat country to go back to your home country after being a student. I have had a few clients who have been in this situation especially recently, so thought it would be a good time to discuss how to deal with your stuff before and after your move b…
 
I recently decided to renovate my bathroom. This was my first renovation project and it was not an easy process.

Hope you find this…

Kids and adults love dressing up - whether it is for Halloween, a retro party or an afternoon of fun with friends, it’s always fun to dress up. I used to dress up like Wonder Woman and a Nurse when I was growing up. There was a limit to the costumes in the 80s but now it is so easy to get them online and in stores. You can be every Marvel or DC cha…

As always I have my views on th…
 
We live in an era of tea and coffee drinkers. There are so many types of both beverages, which means even more boxes, cups, jars, pots, and machines for these drinks to be made. Often I find the cups are in one place, tea bags somewhere else and the coffee machine far, far away. I love creating tea and coffee stations for clients to help them find …

In this week’s new episode we are talking about the room where we spend the most time (after the bedroom) in the house--the living room. The living room can become the black hole of clutter as it is the epicentre to hang out with family, friends and watch tv. How often do you find random toiletries, make-up, toys, books, etc in the living room whic…
 
During this year, I have felt my clients and followers are more anxious when talking about their clutter and dealing with it.
