Plants & Pretties // Outdoor Lounge

plants and pretties diva on a dime interiors

For most of us, the winter months drag on with not much sunlight and we easily over consume every carbohydrate we see to help with hibernation. Growing up in Michigan, I know a thing or two about a lack of vitamin D and serious craving for summer days during these dreary days.  Today’s post if for all of you summer craving individuals that need a fresh new look for the upcoming warm weather.  How incredible are these handwoven hammocks and hanging seats made from a family of artisans in Masaya, Nicaragua?  I was searching the web for my company BASH Event Design and came across Veronica Colindres.  She is a california native but moved to her parents homeland where her family has traditionally gained its income from creating beautiful Hammocks. Both her parents, siblings and herself are involved in the process, carefully putting together each hammock by hand.

Keeping the PASSION

DO IT WITH PASSION OR NOT AT ALL

Often there are days we are tired, feel a lack of creativity, and can’t keep up with all of the things that keep us going each day. The one thing that keeps me going is PASSION. Passion to inspire my readers, create impeccable designs, and have an occasional BASH or two with the 2 most amazing business partners a girl could as for.  The past 2 weeks I have done a lot of reflection on balance, how to accomplish my dreams, and  make money doing it.  I apologize the for the lack of blog posts but BASH Event design needed some loving care and I needed to focus on how to bring all of my businesses to the next level.  The most successful people in the world need balance.  Balance requires daily schedules to keep them accomplishing there goals and dreams while producing the best work possible.  Never lose sight of your goals.  Sometimes we all need a break to breathe, figure out our next move, to become passionate again.   Keep your PASSION for what you love for this is the only thing we have that makes it all worth it after a long work day.  One day you will look back and be amazed by all you have accomplished due to the love and passion you had for your career.

XO,
M
