{GBF Life + Giveaway} The Danny Tanner

When I hear "spring cleaning," I think of Danny Tanner, the sweater vest wearing patriarch and obsessive compulsive neat freak on Full House. Cleaning was his sport and spring cleaning was his Superbowl. He enjoyed the annual event immensely as it presented the opportunity to deep clean-to lift up and wipe underneath the rug, to clean behind the fridge, and to find a way to vacuum the vacuum cleaner. 

Inspired by Mr. Tanner, I've begun the process of a deep spring cleaning, an expunging and rebuilding of my life angled with a 360 approach. It started with a three-day Pressed Juicery cleanse and has now moved onto my home. With the help of The Good Home Co, I've replaced all my cleaning supplies and home fragrances with their natural products which are all biodegradable, plant-based, and free from chemicals and animal testing. It's incredible how a few small changes can change so much.
In the mornings, it's soothing to breathe in the gentle scent of lavender while washing my Blendtec after making my daily smoothie that's mixed with protein powder, spinach, almond milk, flaxseed, and ground sesame.  
Perfuming my lingerie drawer (my Adore Me sets sits at the top) with fragrant sachets means the first thing I put on smells like the refreshing scent of fresh cut grass.
Although peonies are not yet in season, their warm embrace greets me the moment I walk in the door as a few drops of the Peony scented oil fills my living room with my favorite flower.
Kicked out of my overstuffed closets, some of my shoes are displayed on the bookshelf, a fitting tribute as they are truly works of art. The satchets are there...just in case.
       White decor themes my home yet it's a fragile color that requires diligent cleaning. Once reserved      solely for the work of damp towels, I now use glass and surface cleaner on all my white surfaces as I no longer fear chemical abrasions.


Every night, I lightly mist my pillows with Beach Days so that I drift off into sleep dreaming of the waves of Sunset Beach and the pristine crystal blue waters of Kailua.



And in the powder room where I put on my face, the process feels more simplified even though I'm constantly trying new products and working on a new "face" as I get to do it while escaping to the beach.


Spring cleaning has transformed my home into a place of escape, refuge, and sanctuary so that when I'm home, I feel at peace and...at home.

Much thanks to The Good Home Co. and Danny Tanner.

  4. Such a lovely giveaway, your photos are wonderful, makes me oh so envious.
    I am constantly trawiling Pinterest and day dreaming about having my own place again so I can go crazy with crafty home decor ideas. I like simple, bright rooms with monochromatic colour schemes that I can then fill with my plethora of weird and wonderful possesions til it's brimming with character and very much ME.

  18. My husband and I just got married in August 2012 and we have had NO money to decorate and really make a house a home and that bummed me out but I realized that's less about the decorating but more about the memories so I've been including a lot of pictures and personal touches that are cheap but reflect us so people walk in and are like YEP this is their home.

  19. Well, I'm currently in a dorm room with a dirty and inconsiderate roommate, so it's hard to make it a home. BUT, I'm trying by slapping drawings and funny newspaper clippings my momma sends me all over the wall. It's a good thing I'm in art school, so I can have my colleagues sketch me up a lil' drawing here and there so I have free and awesome artwork to add to my collection.
