Didn’t we say 2018 was going to be stellar?!

We are so excited to share new personal work from Adam Moran!

Ashley has been featured in several different publications as well as ads for brands like Golds Gym, Lorna Jane, and more. A collaborative effort between the two, the goal was to capture high contrast images with an old school gym twist. Mission accomplished!

Great work, Adam! We can’t wait to see what you do next!

Spring Cleaning: Decluttering You and Your Life

April 5, 2017 in Amy Herold, Chris Strong, Dana Sabre, Grace Chon, Kim Knight Represents

This month is all about spring cleaning! This includes your life, your diet, your habits, your pets and your cluttered spaces! In preparation for the upcoming season, we wanted to dedicate this month to helpful tips on starting spring with a fresher, cleaner outlook.

There is something wonderful about coming home to a clean space. As much as I love the feeling of finding everything in its right place and having an organized home, clutter has always been something I’ve struggled with. This spring, I buckled down and decluttered and I’ve got some helpful tips for getting started and keeping it up.

First thing, lets talk about how beneficial decluttering can be! Working and living in an organized, clean space has been proven to restore clarity and reduce physical and emotional stress. Spring is a time for new beginnings as we welcome the warmer season and prepare for new (hopefully healthier!) habits and cleaning out the clutter can create that “fresh start” sensation.

1. Start Small & Keep Going

Decluttering your home is a big goal, so don’t expect it to be finished in one day! Start small and move from there. This is great practice for the bigger parts of your home and also may help you realize the habits that have lead to a cluttered space. Pick a small problem area that you’ve noticed recently and clean it out. Conquer the junk drawer! Empty that overflowing closet! Gut the cabinet under the sink! Even a messy desktop on your laptop can serve a great jumping off point. If you don’t use something, toss it. If it doesn’t have a place of its own, make a place for it. This is about shirking off the unnecessary and organizing the necessary. Think of this as your point A, and a clean, clutter-free space in point B.

2. Go Room to Room

Once you’ve got your small project done (didn’t it feel great?!) go room to room and keep the momentum going. For example, head to your kitchen. Appliances take up a lot of space, so if it doesn’t work, get rid of it. Containers for leftover food are useless without a matching lid, so gather the pairs and toss, or recycle, the spares. Try hanging pots and pans for extra storage space. Move from room to room with this attitude and start gathering the things your ready to let go of.

3. Get It Out

It’s best to do this step incrementally as you move through your home. As you gather the clutter you’re tossing, you might notice the pile getting pretty large. Take a break between each room and start to plan an exit strategy for the clutter pile. Do you plan to donate it, recycle it or trash it? Does it fit in a trash bag? Is it easy to transport? This is also a great opportunity to donate your unwanted things to charities that give back. One of our personal favorites is the Chicago based Economy Shop, which will sell your clutter and donate the profits to various charities like The Children’s Clinic and the Animal Care League. The National Furniture Bank Association (NFBA) is also a wonderful organization that accepts your gently used furniture to be donated to struggling families in need. A lot of these organizations, including the NFBA, will pick up your larger items, so do some research and find one that works best for you. Websites like donationtown.org maintains a list of local charities in your area that will assist with donation pick-ups so make sure to utilize these tools while you’re working. Once it’s out, it will feel awesome and this feeling is what will help you keep going.

4. Keep It Up

Decluttering your home takes work, but recluttering is easy. Part of maintaining your newly clean space is breaking bad habits. There’s no need to make this your new obsession, but dedicating 5 minutes a day to maintaining your progress is a great start. Put things away, wipe off surfaces, and take out the trash. These are simple day-to-day routines that can help keep up the cleanliness and make everyday feel like a fresh start.

Spring Cleaning Your Pet

Shirking off the clutter and cleaning your space can be healthy for you, but your pet can benefit from it too! Spring is the prime time for a good grooming session for your pets as they prepare for the warmer seasons.

Grooming isn’t just about maintaining a good-looking coat or managing your pet’s cleanliness, grooming is also about maintaining your pet’s physical health. Brushing helps remove dead hair, dandruff and dirt as well as distribute the natural oils in the fur to maintain a healthy, shiny coat.

If you choose to groom your pet yourself, its a great opportunity for some special one-on-one bonding. On our busier, hectic days, our pets can feel a little left out, so these grooming sessions are a fantastic way to reconnect and give them plenty of attention.

Essential Oil Blend for Clarity of Mind

Looking for a little extra clarity? Try this roller ball recipe to create and promote focused thinking.

Mix together…

6 drops Ginger Essential Oil

5 drops Grapefruit Essential Oil

4 drops Lemon Essential Oil

Fill the rest with carrier oil of choice, I personally prefer fractionated coconut oil.

Message onto your temples and the back of your neck.

With a clean home, a pet with a healthy coat and an essential oil blend for mental clarity, you’re ready to face the warmer months with a fresh start and a new outlook! Spring won’t know what hit it!

Extra, extra, read all about it! Grace Chon recently shot with Clinton Kelly as he visited Pet Rescue in Larchmont, NY, bringing tidings of doggy make-overs! Pet Rescue holds a special place for Clinton Kelly, being the very same shelter where he adopted his own dog, Mary. This year, Clinton decided to return to Pet Rescue and help the remaining dogs find homes just in time for the holiday season. In an effort to promote furry friends still without homes, Clinton treated the dogs to a bath, trim and some fun accessories to bring out their true personalities.

Grace then worked her magic and produced a series of beautiful photos that showed these animals as their best, happiest, friendliest selves. Thanks to Clinton Kelly, Grace Chon and Pet Rescue, many animals we happily placed in new homes with loving families.

Be sure to run out and grab a copy and enjoy with your holiday cheer!
