Cool Calm and Collected

First thing’s first! If you’ve been reading this blog for long, you probably already know what I’m going to say.

That’s right…the first thing you need to do if you want to create true serenity in your life is de-clutter. This is the most important thing you can do to help create an atmosphere that is serene, calm and relaxing at home.
