GhostBed Luxury Sheets

TGIF everyone, 

Or in my world, thank God for everyday! As I’m writing this article in my bed made in GhostBed Luxury Sheets, I have to give gratitude on how humbled and blessed I am to actually be doing things I love to do, and having the flexibility and the freedom to choose my own schedule, especially when I can do those things in the comfort of my very own bed.

What makes it even more pleasant these days, is the luxury feel of GhostBed Sheets. These Sheets are said to be the world most comfortable and luxurious sheets, and I can see why. This is not a hyperbole! The sheets are silky and smooth to the feel and the unique & luxurious blend of Supima Cotton, plus Tencel Fibers GhostGrip allow this fitted sheet to stay on securely. It never pops off; and that I love even more.

We could feel the difference right at our first night sleep of using these sheets. They are incredibly soft without feeling fuzzy and they are also very cooling. This sheet set will work great on almost any mattress, but it’s ideal to pair it with any GhostBed mattress. which I would love to try next, after falling in love with their pillows and now their sheets!

I honestly thought the set – which came with 1 top sheet, 1 fitted sheet and 4 pillow cases – was a little costly, but I wouldn’t mind paying a little extra money for their incredible quality and the great comfort they provide.

I would highly recommend these sheets; and if you are in the market for some new ones, go ahead and give them a try! They offer Free Shipping and Industry leading 3-Year Warranty. And oh, tell them I sent you! They’ll treat you right! 😉

Abs are made in the kitchen

Happy Monday darlings.

I hope you had a great Easter. It’s been quite a minute… I intentionally took some time off, but I wanted to make a quick stop here to give you guys a little update on my healthy living journey.

A couple of weeks ago, I made an exciting announcement about starting a 30-day healthy living and cleansing program, and ever since, I have been receiving inquiring e-mails about the program, and inquiring minds also wanted to know how I’m personally doing so far with the program.

Well, it’s been challenging yet amazing. It’s now three weeks into the challenge; and all I can say is that the results are already speaking for themselves.

Black-beautiul-blogger-interior-designer

The biggest reward of them all is to hear all the positive feedback and excitement from others that have joined me. While this program is intended to help with weight loss, I’m more in awe of the great health changes and overall energetic feelings.

Like they say, abs are made in the kitchen; and for this program to work well, you must commit to eating intentionally, which means being mindful of the food you feed your body. However, safe and healthy nutrition products and supplements are just as important; and Arbonne is a one stop shop for safe, pure, and beneficial wellness/nutrition, bath & body, and skin care products.

Nutrition products and supplements, such as protein shakes, fiber boost, detox tea, etc… are very essential in any diet or cleansing program; and I was frankly shocked when people tell me that they don’t want to use any nutrition products, yet they were interested in joining the program to begin with. I mean, even when you are doing a smoothie cleanse, you still need a good plant-base protein powder, or any type of fiber boost or detox tea for the cleanse or clean eating to be efficient… Right?

My point is, don’t discredit a good program, because you have to buy some nutrition products to go along with the instructions and guidelines. Sure, do your research and decide if that program is a good fit for you.

We are almost at the finishing line, and I cannot wait to share some pictures with you guys later on. However, like I said before, this is a lifestyle and I’m intending to go beyond these 30 days for a healthier, better, and most fabulous me. Watch out! 🙂

P.S If you are interested in learning more about the Arbonne products, the program, or to learn about the Abonne business opportunity, send me a message and I will be more than happy to assist you.

As always, thank you so much for stopping by! I’m so excited about this journey and even more excited that I’m sharing it with you, guys. Until next time, cheers to a wonderful week.

Love + Light,

Tips for Evaluating A Home for Flipping

Flipping homes can be both a personally rewarding and highly lucrative business…if you know what you’re doing.  You may think it’s simple enough to take a dumpy home, pretty it up, and put it back on the market for a nice profit, but how do you know where to start?  What are the criteria you should be used to identify the ideal candidate for your fledgling home renovation business?


Given the amount of time, effort, and (most importantly) money that goes into a venture like this, you want to make sure you have the tools and knowledge necessary to properly evaluate a home and determine its real potential as a flipped property.  You should make sure you understand the variables, expenses, and other considerations that need to be taken into account to calculate the return on your Vancouver townhouse.

In the interest of helping you make truly informed, calculated risks in this market, let’s look at four of the most critical tips for evaluating a house and determining how much of a return you can expect on your investment, and indeed, whether there’s a return to be made at all.

Determine the After Repaired Value (ARV).

In short, After Repaired Value, or ARV, refers to the projected value of a property once the upgrades, repairs, and other improvements are finished.  This is the first tip on the list for a significant reason: unless you expect to make a good amount of return on your investment, there’s no point in starting in the first place.  This is why determining this value should be the first thing you do in any scenario.

Figuring out the expected ARV is essential for another reason: once you have worked out how much you can expect to gross on the project, you can figure out all the expenses you plan to incur during the renovation phase and determine what your net profit will be.  Again, you’re in this to make money, and you need to know your ARV before you can work out any of the other numbers involved.

Estimate the total cost of renovating the property.

Before you can calculate your net profit after renovations, you have to have an idea of how much those renovations will actually cost.  At a minimum, the costs you can expect to incur include repairing or replacing carpet and or/hardwood floors, electric and/or plumbing repairs, fresh paint, upgraded kitchen and bathroom, new doors and windows, and any exterior work such as landscaping and tree management.

Calculate closing and holding costs.

Don’t forget that the regular costs associated with buying and owning a home will fall to you for as long as you own it.  Just like when you buy a home for yourself, closing costs can be expected to run well into the thousands, and if you’re using an agent to sell the house when you’re done with it, you can expect them to take around 5% on commission, and possibly expenses incurred as well.  Also remember that you’ll be on the hook for property taxes, homeowner’s insurance, utilities, and any relevant HOA fees as well.

Figure out your offer price.

Finally, it’s time to give the current owner of your prospective flipped property your offer price.  This is actually relatively simple to work out: start with your ARV, then subtract your calculated renovation costs, closing/holding costs, and the desired profit, and that leaves you with your offer price.

As you can see, there’s a lot more that goes into flipping a home than just new rugs and a fresh coat of paint. By following the tips above, you’ll have a great idea of how to determine a house’s real value, and calculate your expenses accurately enough to ensure a nice profit for all your time and effort.

10 Easy ways To Freshen-up Your Home In Spring

Happy Friday beauties,

With Spring around the corner, let’s talk about Spring decor; shall we? 🙂 Spring decor has to be one of my favorite of them all! Any excuses to decorate or redecorate the house are welcome; and what a better time to declutter, freshen things up a bit than Spring!?

So, if you’re looking into spring cleaning and changing things around a little bit in your home, these functional and simple decor ideas will guide and help you brighten things up a little and instantly transform your space. Enjoy.

Hypnozglam_simple-spring-decor

1 – All Things Flower

Blossom the bloom in the room by choosing colorful or prints curtains. Need an extra dose of flowers? Easy! You can never go wrong with fresh flowers to freshen things up even more. (Unless you or anyone in the house is allergic to them, of course)

2- Freshen Up The Wall

Wallpapers are fun and can really freshen-up a room instantly. With whatever theme you’re going for, just make sure it doesn’t clash with the rest of the décor in your room. My other suggestion will be to go for a peel-and-stick wallpaper option. They make the job easy and also give you the option to easily remove them when you decide it’s time to switch things up again.

3- Artwork Works

Don’t believe me? Take a look at these flower artworks! – A breath of fresh air.

4 – Green With Envy.

Bring the “greens” into your home. Okay, maybe not all of them. Whether it’s a plant, green decorative accents, or even green reupholstering dining chairs for a dramatic look, you will be sure to go from warm winter decor to bright and fresh spring affair.

5- Pretty And Soft Palettes

Sometimes, all you need is a pretty and soft palette such as a pastel paint on the wall to bring a breath of fresh air and peacefulness to the room. Go a little further by choosing a similar tone (but in deeper hues) chairs’ cushions for example or some pretty accents to bring everything together.

6- Blue Done Well

The blue in this room is so elegant and charming. If shopping for a blue couch is not an option, you can bring in any blueish small furniture or decorative pillows or accents. And who says you can’t match your decor with your outfit? When Fashion and decor meet…

7- Elegant With A Touch Of Green

“Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication” – When you see this living space only adorned with simple and beautiful plants which brings out the contrast against the shades of grey in this room,  you will understand why I quoted the great Leonardo Da Vinci.

8- Orange Is The New Black 

Well, let’s not get it twisted, friends… The only orange I’m talking about here is the one in this room 😉 ; and it can’t get any more springy than this.

9- Pretty, Feminine and Pink

Love Spring… and Pink? This room says it all! Hello Spring!

10- Pop Of Yellow

I love the glam look, the soothing feel, and the subtle pop of yellow in this room. I think it’s a nice example of a minimalist transformation. You loose nothing of your interiors decorating style, but still feel and enjoy the essence of the new season by adding a subtle touch of color. Lively!
