Can you believe it Springtime already?
Gosh it was only a few weeks ago I was still wearing a beanie and feeling cosy under the blankets watching my favourites shows on Netflix. When the season changes there is a sense of renewal that we can give ourselves, homes and lifestyle actives a well earned makeover.
Since the beginning of September I've been unconsciously cleaning, decluttering and making sure things have a beautiful fresh feel to them. On Sunday I took my mum, daughter, husband and grandchildren to a gorgeous Sunflower farm not far from where we live. We had so much fun walking through the flowers and picking our own.
The flowers are sitting near a window and every morning I notice they are more in bloom radiating joy throughout my house.
Did you know that in myth sunflowers are considering to be naturally grounding offering stability, happiness and joy filled blessings. They are also known for bringing good fortune, luck and positivity to you.
Sunday's adventures are my inspiration for todays 10 Amazing Transformational Steps for Spring

Self Care Tip #9
Smudging your house is these easiest way to remove negative, stale and old energies. This can happen mostly during winter as we often keep doors and windows closed to help warm our homes. Spring is the perfect opportunity to engage in a spring smudging cleanse. The smoking of sage is said to have both antibacterial and antimicrobial.
