SELF IMPROVEMENT CHALLENGE 

Processed with Moldiv
I challenge you to spend the next week creating a space that’s just for you

WHY WHY WHY

  • Creating a space of your own where you can sleep, eat, put on make up, read, surf the web or just sit in silence is like winning the lottery
  • Allowing yourself to be selfish and fulfill your own desires will increase self-esteem, self-worth, and make you a happier person

MATERIALS

  • Depends on what kind of space you are creating

DIRECTIONS

  • Take the time to think about what kind of space you want to create and what kind of space you're working with
  • Example: lets say you want a reading space but you live in a studio. Find big pillows and a special lamp that you can break down easily 
  • Find room inspiration on Pinterest

MY  TAKE 

My boyfriend went home for Easter and I was left alone to do nothing but relax. Surprisingly I didn’t the opposite of that, I creating my very own space, I finally put together a vanity. I’ve never wore make-up so this vanity is a large jewelry holder with is exactly what I needed, a place where I can sit down, stare out at the bay and bejewel myself. I went DIY crazy making jewelry holders and even made a chair! I love this new space, I spent hours sitting at my new vanity and smiling ear to ear. I hope this weeks challenge inspires all of you to create a unique space where you can spread out and be yourself. 

XOXO
