One of my favorite brands, although I usually only buy their items at resale shops, is Missoni. They have finally made an affordable line for Target and I can't wait to stock up on some more items from them. I just love all kinds of things that they make. Besides being well made, they are fun to wear and use.

Below is a website courtesy of O Magazine of some of the top things organizers want you to know. As I do agree with much of it, as a professional organizer there is so much more to it as well.
Comment if you have any questions for me.

Bryan and I finally found a place to have our wedding reception. It will be at Gallery M Squared. We are both super excited and super relieved that we found a place that we LOVE and that is relatively inexpensive compared to other venues in Downtown Houston. We love how eclectic and fun it is, which totally fits are personalities and styles.

Every time I tell people the name of my dog they give me a very puzzled look. His name is Rothko (after Mark Rothko the artist and some character from World of Warcraft that my fiance chose). Here is a top 10 list of the wackiest pet names of 2011 http://www.breedtrust.com/blog/top-10-wackiest-pet-names-2011. Some of these I don't think are too wacky, but are cute.

I use the website Freecycle a lot of times to either get rid of things or to get certain things. You post what you are getting rid or looking for and many of times people will respond. One thing that I like to use it for is getting coupons. I know it is the craze now, but I have been using them since I was on my own and during my college days. Freecycle is a great resource for all kinds of things. It is very similar to Craigslist except the items on there are FREE. You can't beat FREE!

Back to school organizing can be quite the chore for those of you who are either in school or have children who are in school. Here are some tips you can follow:
- Set up a clear system. Whether this system is how you will organize your paperwork in a binder or how will handle your workstations at home.
- Establish a command center. This will be a place you will have your calendar, pens, paper, etc. This will be the go to place for all of your school needs. Be sure to keep your command center organized as this makes being productive a lot easier.
There are of course many other things that you can do, but these are just a few that I think are really important.

There is this website www.37signals.com that a couple of different clients of mine use. It has web-based applications that link a variety of information together to make the work place more collaborative and productive. In the 37 signals suite there are 4 applications included. They are: Basecamp (project management), Highrise (contact management), Backpack (internal communications) and Campfire (chat rooms). You can use these applications to upload files, share calendars, add to-do list, make notes, keep track of time worked on projects, etc.

Once again I let my blogging slide and haven’t posted since February. I know there isn’t an excuse, but I have been swamped with work and some very exciting projects. For many of people it can become hard to juggle it all, which in my case I LOVE everything I do so I do my best to juggle it all. Luckily for me most of the time I know when enough is enough and I need to take a break. This is something many people struggle with including several of my clients that lead for busy lives.
