YES, YOU CAN
“Yes You Can” is a weekly column where I remind you that you’re intelligent and you have a great eye. My work here is to help you see your style and take action: in your decorating, your wardrobe, your beauty routine, and beyond. Yes, you can. I kick off this column every week with (a.) a quotation to encourage you, followed by (b.) my top decorating and style tips from the week, (c.) decorating and style ideas around the web, and (d.) my favorite finds to save you money and time.
A QUOTE TO ENCOURAGE YOU

MY TOP DECORATING AND PERSONAL STYLE TIPS FROM THE WEEK
+ Tip: Take last week’s quick and easy READER STYLE SURVEY; I really want to hear from you! So many of you have already filled it out, and I thank you – I love learning more about you. Inside the survey are 10 multiple choice questions that take a minute to answer, and will help me make my blog posts better and better. If you haven’t done it yet, you can find it here.
+ Tip: Look for shoes that can multi-task, in style. In collaboration with Famous Footwear, I highlight how shoes that do double-duty boost comfort and confidence, and make acheiving work-life balance so much easier.
