Closet 101: How to Make Your Wardrobe Organized, Beautiful, and Zen

By | All Posts, DIY, Home

Organization is overwhelming. Papers, clothes, toys, and books…it is incredible just how many things the average American household has inside it. We challenge you to quiet the noise of some of your own mayhem and focus on one impactful area this week: your closet. This is the place where you start your day and put on the armor and confidence you need to face whatever the world is going to serve you. Make that start purposeful by having a beautiful, zen space to keep your wardrobe. You’ll save time and stress; and you don’t have to break the bank doing it.

Make Everything Visible

There is a reason retail stores display all the inventory they have in such purposeful, neat stacks. If you do not see it, you will not buy it. Well the same is true for your closet: if you do not see it, you will not wear it. Who knows what incredible lost relics have been scooched to the back of your armoire? You may have incredible pieces that seem gone forever simply because you do not give yourself easy visual access to everything you have. If you don’t think you have the space to see everything, you probably have too many pieces. Consider pairing down.

Matching Hangers Are Your Friend

A simple change that clears a lot of visual chaos is to have matching hangers. We recommend thin, non-slip versions like these from Sweet Home, but really any matching set will do the trick. By removing the extra noise of mismatched colors and materials at the top of the closet, your eye naturally moves downward and focuses more on the actual clothing.

Use Containers to Maximize Space

Containers in general are always a good thing when it comes to closet organization, but again we would encourage you to go with matching sets. Think of your closet as an art gallery, and the clothing are the works of art. Everything else in the space should not compete, but rather bring your eye back to the fabrics. This simplifies your process for choosing outfits by making color-matching and memory recall of where things are placed a cinch. The only trick with containers is sizing is key. Take specific measurements of your available space and purchase bins that optimize is to the fullest. There’s nothing worse than getting geared up to tackle a mess only to realize the accessories you have don’t fit right or won’t do the job best.

Sort Your Sock and Underwear Drawers

Keeping with the idea of being able to see everything you have, make your drawers an easy-to-use area. We are obsessed with linen organizers like this version from The Container Store that give a place for every item and keep every item in its place.

Display Shoes Vertically

The most underutilized area in any space is what’s above your line of sight. Make a point of looking up and brainstorm how to best use what you have. Shoes particularly are perfect for this kind of storage as you can easily categorize shelves by occasion, color, or style and you’ll know just where to look depending on what you’re dressing for. You’ll be more inclined to seek out those green heels you never touch when you know they’re on the shelf with all your other green shoes.

Utilize Every Inch of Space with Clever Hacks

The back of your closet door, any wall space within the closet, and other parts of your bedroom are most like littered with spots you’re not quite sure how to fill. Get creative with your oddball items like scarves, camis, and jewelry by making storage systems out of these underwhelming wall spots. So often a few hooks will do the trick, but there are also plenty of easy-to-install products out there that will help you give everything a home.

Tips to Make “Back to School” So Much Smoother

By | All Posts, Home

There is something so blissful about summer. Lazy days, hours of outside time, and treats you can only get at their peak for a few months of the year. (We’re looking at you, watermelon.) But there’s also a relief for many parents as the beginning of school draws near. With all of summer’s pros, there are the cons to consider like a lack of routine, messy homes, and wired kids needing more intellectual stimulation. To make the transition positive for everyone in your household, here are our top tips to prepare for the “back to school” season.

Slowly Reintroduce a Stricter Schedule

Right now your routine may be a bit lax as you enjoy late wake up times and “eat-when-you-please” meals. Many families struggle with the sudden change school brings to rushed mornings and closely timed lunches. Avoid experiencing a huge shock to you and your kids’ systems by incorporating better habits progressively throughout the next few weeks. Inch that bedtime a few minutes earlier each night, and set wake ups just a bit earlier. It’s a good idea to check on your specific school’s lunch hour and breaks, to help your little ones’ tummies adjust to waiting a little longer for their next snack. Emulate the timing they’ll have at school as much as possible at home and you’ll all adjust easier when the time comes.

Get the House in Order

Pantries, medicine cabinets, entryways, and closets…these are a few of our least favorite things. For whatever reason the areas of the home that store the most important things also tend to become chaotic the quickest. Take inventory of your home’s biggest pain points and make yourself a list and calendar for tidying them up. By tackling one area each day, you’ll be able to get the place in an ideal state for a new routine without overwhelming yourself in one giant cleaning sweep.

Make Shopping a Fun Time for Everyone

You will have no problem finding great deals on kids clothes, shoes, and school supplies this time of year; but you may have some issue getting all 3 kiddos packed in the car, acting reasonable in the store, and leaving with everything you intended to get by the end of the trip. Turn some of that responsibility back on to your children…for older kids that can read, give them individual shopping lists for things they can look for while you help the younger ones. And make it fun for everybody by giving each child choices and a sense of decision-making in the process. You may need to steer them toward the three outfits that are appropriate and within your budget, but then allow them to pick the one they like! A little bit of personal style mixed in with your practicality guidance will go a long way in helping your kids gain excitement and confidence for school.

Coordinate Carpools and Extracurricular Activities Now

You may have had it all worked out in the spring, but things with kids change so quickly that it’s probably a whole new ballgame with each new school year. You may have teenagers transitioning to middle school or high school, perhaps the neighbor who used to do pickup for the elementary kids has moved away, or your nine year old is just insisting that he needs to play basketball this year and he’s no longer into soccer. Whatever the changes you anticipate to face this fall, get the logistics in order sooner rather than later. Visit orientation campus days, call neighbors to get car pools set up, and register for the coming sport season sooner rather than later. Removing the guesswork for your upcoming calendar will also remove a lot of stress.

Create a Command Central

Now that you have a family routine once again, the kids are set with new backpacks, and the house isn’t quite so disheveled…the rest of the year will be a breeze right? We wish. Set your entire crew up for success by having a central point of organization. Set up a central location for a full calendar, chore charts, important school papers, and even baskets or shelves for things like dance practice outfits and homework. By having all of these things in one important place, each person in your home will know where to look when they’re confused, and what to do in preparation for each days’ “excitement.” With some collaboration, organization, and teamwork—you’ll all get back on track for a fun and productive school year.

Summer’s Best Beauty Products That Won’t Smudge

By | All Posts, Beauty

It’s summer, and easy breezy looks are what it’s all about. When everyone is melting in the sun, no one will be surprised to see you with simply a little SPF, lip balm, and waterproof mascara. But for the times when you still want a gorgeous “beat face,” we recommend these smear-proof products.

Sephora Perfection Mist Airbrush Foundation

A smooth canvas is the crucial first step to a fabulous makeup look. These airbrush foundations apply light and oil-free. You can keep the coverage subtle or apply a bit more with a beauty blender for a more full-coverage look without appearing cakey.

Laura Mercier Creme Cheek Color

This all-season cream blush from Laura Mercier has stood the test of time. It continues to be a favorite for beauty bloggers every year, and we are completely on board with their sentiment. The creamy texture blends super well, but then leaves a satin finish that isn’t at all greasy. The peachy tones in “Sunrise” are so cute for a fresh face.

Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay Waterproof Bronzer

While the price tag on this product is a little steep, the formula has such great pigmentation that one container is sure to last you the entire summer. The Amazonian Clay in the bronzer makes it completely waterproof, and helps control oil to keep the rest of your makeup last a whole lot longer.

Beauty Bakerie Matte Lip Whip

This long-lasting matte liquid lip color stays put through all the elements. It feels super light and won’t smudge; and the colors are fun and flirty. The “Berry Pop” shade is a classic mid-grade pink that looks fab on pretty much any skin tone.

Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade

Your brows will be sure to keep their shape when they are set with this creamy matte pomade from Anastasia Beverly Hills. Once set in place, this formula stays put without feeling heavy. And as we all know…as long as your brows are on point, your entire face will be.

Smashbox Always On Gel Eyeliner Pencil

Gel liners are great year-round, but especially when you know heat is going to be a factor. The control of a pencil makes for easier use, but the smooth application gives the bold look of a liquid. This particular gel pencil from Smashbox is waterproof and guaranteed to last up to 24 hours. So it’s ideal for sweaty days in the sun–wear it to the all-day outdoor wedding you’ve been dreading.

L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara

This affordable product from L’Oreal is a drugstore WIN. Having tried virtually all the waterproof mascaras out there, we can say with confidence this one gives you thickness, length and zero smudging. Even if you’re having a more simple day, this mascara, along with great brows and a dab of lipstick, will still be a bomb look. Seriously, try it. Buy it. Like right now.

8 Incredible Summer Fashion Pieces

By | All Posts, Beauty, Inspiration

Shopping local and U.S.-based companies feels so good, doesn’t it? It seems like the perfect way to spread some American love during this patriotic time of year. And as the summer heats up, it’s also a great time to shop fabulous fashion pieces for cooling down. We’ve managed to combine the two with this list of our picks for the best summer fashion created by incredible designers based out of the western United States. Take a look at what great companies have come from Utah, Arizona, Idaho, and more. These trend-setters are making beautiful and functional fashion while changing the world with powerful causes and responsible sourcing.

ASHLEY LEMIEUX

Polka Dot Jumper

If you caught our #WomanWednesday piece on Instagram this week, you already know we are obsessed with Ashley Lemieux. As the creator of two incredible fashion and lifestyle brands, The Shine Project and Ashley Lemieux, her example motivates us to enjoy the sunshine, smell the roses, and try fabulous new summer fashion. And also…don’t you just LIVE for a great jumper?! When done right, this vintage classic look can have a gorgeous rebirth. And Ashley’s brand has done it right. The tiny polka dot is so clean and fresh, while the cut will be flattering for many body types. Sizing is tricky on jumpers at times, so air on the side of caution if you’re questioning where you fit.

ROOLEE

Makenna High Rise Shorts

High waisted shorts are having a great moment; and the front tie on this pair is polished but quick and easy. These shorts are super comfy and easy breezy in a soft playful color and lightweight linen fabric. Plus, they have pockets–so how can you go wrong?

MIKAROSE

Texture Floral Skirt

Florals have also been super in right now as feminine style of late combines classic ladylike elements accented with hard or sharp pieces. We think this would look stunning with an unexpected leather jacket or some chunky metallic accessories and boots. It’s also super beautiful as is…so you’ll still look great with a more simple outfit adding a white top and sandals.

KODIAK LEATHER CO.

Buffalo Leather Duffel

If you’re like us, you’ve been itching for a weekend getaway. This little duffel is the perfect size for a quick overnight with your honey. The incredible leather this company produces is a real investment and, with proper care, will last for years to come. The style is simply classic.

DOWNEAST BASICS

Crafty Crush Top

This boho piece is soft and easy, with a feminine aesthetic that could be dressed up or down. Pair it with a pencil skirt in the day for the office, and then throw on some classic blue jean shorts to carry you through the evening for going to a picnic or one of Utah’s many firework shows.

DILLARD’S

Eliza Crepe Stripe Pants by Antonio Melani

We all agree pants are difficult in the summer. Those legs gotta breathe! But if you work in a professional setting where shorts just won’t work, these adorable wide leg beauties are the best option you’ll find. The light fabric will stay cool in summer heat while the subtle print is ideal for being business-appropriate and stylish.

INDY BRAND

Go Outside Classic Fit Tee

So cute and comfortable, we are obsessed with the calming green tone and retro word art on this perfect summer top. The fabric is high quality with a bit of stretch, so it fits lots of body types. Plus you’ll be so motivated to embrace the day with joy when you wear this inspirational message.

THE SHINE PROJECT

18K Gold Plated Mantra Necklace

The Shine Project has had college students make gorgeous jewelry by hand from the beginning. Through the program Ashley Lemieux started, The Shine Project works to support struggling college youth by offering them jobs and a marketable skill. The company also allocates a percentage of each purchase toward scholarships for more young adults with limitless potential but limited resources. The organization has given away more than 80 scholarships and offered many jobs to underprivileged adolescents in the U.S. through the years.

Fun with Dad: Activities to Make this Father’s Day Awesome

By | All Posts, Entertainment

Play Golf (or Mini Golf)

It’s hard to go wrong with this family favorite. If you’re in a family of golfers, eighteen holes in the morning make for a great start to your dad’s special day. In a family with small kids or if your dad isn’t the Phil Mickelson type,  a rousing round of putt-putt is always a good choice. Glendale Golf Course, Topgolf, and Fat Cats are all great options if you’re in Salt Lake valley.

Go Fishing

A Father’s Day classic, we love this pastime. It has all the great elements desired for spending quality time with your old man: fresh air, the great outdoors, peace and quiet, and he’ll get to teach you techniques or tricks from his “good old days.” If your dad is the strong, silent type…this is also a perfect time to get him to finally, just maybe open up. For a quick day trip in the Salt Lake City area, check out Holmes Creek Reservoir, Highland Glen Park, or Mabey Pond.

Baseball

The greatest benefit to taking your father to a baseball game is the afternoon will be low-key, easy, and fun. Purchase tickets to a Salt Lake Bees’ Game here. Or if you are a more hands on family, it’s also a blast to organize your own neighborhood game. Reserve a local park, gather people your dad loves spending time with in your community, and complete the evening with a potluck picnic. It requires a bit more planning and effort than attending a Minor League game, but it will be a memory you won’t soon forget.

Visit an Amusement Park

Sometimes the best gift is a good time. Save your pennies spent on presents your dad will most likely forget in a few months, and allocate those funds instead on doing something different and exciting. Get Air is an indoor trampoline park, Seven Peaks water park is great for the summer heat, and Lagoon is a Utah classic with rollercoasters and carnival games.

Grill or Cook His Favorite Meal

A lot of dads out there consider themselves the household “master of outdoor cooking.” He may be impressed however with all the things he’s taught you over the years. Get dad to take a seat and show him the skills of a new family “flame master.” You also can get some help from local pros if you’re not really that great of a chef…we won’t tell. Sugarhouse Barbecue, R & R Barbecue, and Pat’s BBQ in Salt Lake City all have incredible sides and delicious barbecue.

Utah’s Fabulous Vintage Decor Community

By | All Posts, Home

We all love a bargain. And let’s face it, interior decor can get real pricey real quick. At the same time, we all want our homes to be comfortable, beautiful, and a unique reflection of our own personal style. Jennifer Reed from Orem, Utah was facing this very problem years ago when she started to have a love of vintage and antique pieces…a passion she has now grown into a family pastime, business, and community project. As the owner of vintage decor company “3 Dotters Vintage” and founder of the “Provo Vintage Market,” she certainly knows how to be thrifty and get a good deal, while finding quality, unique items. She gave us the scoop on the best flea spots in Utah.
