Happy Spring everyone!!! With spring comes the dreaded spring cleaning. I scoured Pinterest for a spring cleaning list but then it dawned on me that I should create my own. Why you may ask? Because the items on their lists most likely won't fit the tasks I have to do. So with that, I grab my supplies and got to work. If you want to know how to create your own Spring Cleaning List here's how I created mine. Quick and easy.
What you will need:
-Grid paper or paper
Let's get started.
I first took a sheet of my Recollections grid paper.
I decided to get the decorating out the way first by using come spring-ish stickers.
After decorating the page to make it look pretty. You'll need some checklist stickers in various colors to designate different areas in the home. Make sure to leave a space above to write the area of the home.
I then staggered the checklists to create three areas of the home. Depending on how many tasks you have you might have to combine checklists.
I then did the same exact thing on the other side of the paper.
To finish off mine I went looking for spring and cleaning related text. Unfortunately, I didn't have any so I just took the pen to the paper and wrote out Spring Cleaning List in script.
And I'm done. All I have to do know is fill out the tasks for each section of the home and then get to work. This simple list can be adapted to make a every day cleaning list as well. Or even a chore list for your children. The possibilities are endless.
Are you creating a spring cleaning list? We would love to see how yours came out.

Now I know you've heard of your daily wardrobe and the key pieces every woman should own. From there the experts say you can add pieces gradually to expand your core wardrobe. The same idea applies to your jewelry wardrobe.
Being a jewelry lover myself my collection wasn't always what it is today. I had only one or two key pieces and over time (years) it has expanded to what I have today. So let me go into the staples you need to own to build your jewelry wardrobe and my suggestions on what to purchase.
It starts with 7-8 pieces and from there you build out.Simple studs
(nothing overly boring)I was never a stud wearer until recent years but they have become a staple in my wardrobe. They can sometimes be simple or overly bold depending on the pair. If you don't like dangly earrings then studs are your best friend. If you work in a pretty conservative office then studs are the only way to go but they don't have to be boring.
Timeless Faux Druzy Stud earrings
are sparkly and a bolder touch but can't go with any and everything in your wardrobe. Crystal Stripe Lucite Stud earrings
are more understated but the touch of gold puts some dimension and texture to them.Yellow Color Burst India Glass earrings
are for the times you want to add a bit of color and fun without being too out there.Dainty necklaces of different lengths and/or thickness
Just like before, if your just starting out wearing jewelry it's best to start dainty and work your way up to a statement necklace. Dainty necklaces are perfect for laying which is pretty popular.Why wear one when you can wear several, right.
Circles Gold Plated Lariat necklace
is a lariat necklace and can be worn several different ways. I suggest having at least one in your wardrobe.Besides being perfect for laying you can wear inside a shirt for a subtle touch or outside for elongated look. Lariats can always we worn to your back if you have a backless shirt or dress on.Gold Plated Heart Initial necklace
is perfect for laying and is subtle necklace that can just peek through a button down shirt or worn over a turtleneck. Worn with a lariat for layering makes the perfect duo.Mixed Agate Catseye necklace
is a bar necklace which adds a bit dimension the other two styles lack. Another necklace perfect for laying either with a choker style necklace or a longer necklace.Two rings of different widths
(optional)Not everyone is a fan of rings like myself but if you are then adding two rings to your wardrobe is a must. It's like adding the bow to a present.
Stunning Set Gold Ring Set
) is what are popular right now. They are dainty and can be worn like a traditional ring or worn the trendy way a knuckle ring. It's a two for one in my book.Flair to Spare Gold Rhinestone Ring
) is a more chunkier ring with more dimension the other.If you're a lover of rings then you'll love this type of ring.
I got my first "nice" watch as a h.s. graduation gift from the company I was working for at the time. If any piece of jewelry you start with first I highly suggest a watch. You can't tell time without it. I know it's the technological age and you're saying who wears a watch nowadays. We'll professionals does and what happens if your phone dies on the way to meet a client. You'll be glad you had your watch one. FYI,Target have some really cute ones and the prices are really affordable.
Women's Mossimo® Crystal Accent Analog Watch with Decorative Dials - Rose Gold - Mossimo™
)Women's Strap Watch with Baguette Stone Glitz Dial - Grey/Rose Gold - Mossimo™
Two delicate bracelets of different width
Just like necklaces, bracelets are perfect for layering but you can wear them alone. I personally prefer wearing two or three at one time.
Bless Rose Gold Tone Chain bracelet
is perfect for wearing alone and our personal favorite for layering.It's still dainty despite the cross pendant and is very popular motif.Rose Bow Glass Pearl Stretch bracelet
is a beaded stretch option if you're not a fan of chain bracelets. Still dainty and feminine with a couple of adorable bow charms dangling. Another great option for layering.Two chunky bracelets
(optional)If you're into more chunky bracelet which add more dimension and sometime flair then you'll enjoy adding this option to your jewelry wardrobe. Great for layering or wear alone. Especially in fall and winter, they can be worn over the cuff of long sleeve shirts and sweaters.
Tribal King Bone and Glass bracelet
is the perfect example of a chunky bracelet.Featuring a mixture of texture and can be worn alone or with another for layering.Unstoppable Glass Wood Tassel bracelet
is a bracelet that has a bit of everything. Texture, chunky, and a mix of elements. Another great piece to wear alone and look fabulous layered with other bracelets.
Despite which staples you decide to choose to build your jewelry wardrobe forget the rules and choose what fits you and your style. If you're not comfortable with it then it's pointless in wearing or even purchasing it.
