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.

Right now I am in Austin about to attend the Austin City Limits (ACL) Festival (this was a scheduled post). I have been attending this festival for many years. Any one who knows me knows that I LOVE music and going to festivals, concerts, etc. Although many of the artists I have seen before, I am still looking forward to seeing a lot of bands that I haven't seen before like Fitz and the Tantrums, Kayne West, etc. One thing that I do dread about the festival every year is the heat. Since we are in Texas it gets extremely hot with the exception of last year it was a little bit cooler. I will keep you updated on how the festival was.

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!

It took me a long time to find make-up that is environmentally friendly and that I love. I finally found it a while ago called Josie Maran Cosmetics. I am obsessed with this brand and LOVE all the products that I have tried. They do cost a little more than your normal drugstore cosmetics, but completely worth it. I am conscious about what products I put on my body because I do not want a lot of unnecessary chemicals and toxins on my body. I do not where a lot of make-up so am willing to pay more to make sure I am protected in the best ways possible and Josie Maran Cosmetics helps me do that.

Since I run an eco-friendly company there are many eco sites that I love, but I especially love this one when it comes to all things green:www.gorgeouslygreen.com. Sophie Uliano who has wrote several books by the same name is passionate about living a green lifestyle. I have used many products and services that she has recommended and LOVE most of them. I highly encourage you to check out her website.
