It's May! I'm happy because it's one of my favorite times of year. I get excited about warmer temps and the sunshine, letting go of the heaviness of the cold weather and heavier clothes we've been wearing, and I'm also inspired to adopt better habits and let go of things and energies and people that need to go. Spring cleaning at its best.

I'm still making my way through this book Outrageous Openness by Tosha Silver which is basically a guide to opening yourself up to fresh perspectives in life which can help us live life exactly as we deserve ... and truly desire. I love to read a chapter or two very early every morning to start my day on a positive note. 

Did you know that you can get samples of perfumes you like at Sephora stores for free? A friend put me on to this and I quickly took advantage. I hate buying a scent and then not loving it once I get it home. This way you can try out a few samples for a few weeks and see which really suits you best. Above is my almost-empty sample of Tocca Florence, a lush floral, warm and feminine perfume that's not too sweet. I'm definitely going to buy it. 

Another thing I'm switching up this month is wearing simple jewelry. I love a signature look and piece so I'm adding this necklace to my everyday style. It's hard to see but the gold chain and charm above is one I wore way back in high school. The charm says "Black Princess" and the little circle is a K.

Happy Monday!
