Today is April Fools Day, but I’m not playing any jokes or pranks this morning. As soon as I hit publish on this post I am putting my head down to clear my inboxes to ZERO. It’s a daunting task – I have 2 personal emails, 1 business email, 1 Facebook email and 1 LinkedIn email to clean out. That’s a total of about 500 unread messages and I need to clean out the Spam folders as well!
My inspiration for this Spring Email Clean Out comes from This Beautiful Day’s post “How To Get Your Email Under Control“.
Part of my New Years Goals were to be more organized and to work smarter. I am definitely the type to leave emails unread if they are not part of my immediate mandated work and it’s hard to go back and clean out when I’ve moved onto the next thing.
So I’m putting my headphones on and giving myself until my 11:50am meeting today to get to my goal of “0” unread emails.
Wish me luck!
Spring is coming and we’ve got a New Moon coming up. It is time to let go of what no longer serves you and what takes away from your happiness and peace of mind.
This is from today’s Mystic Medusa daily email today and I had to share. I love the poem “She Let Go”
So until the time of the New Moon Eclipse (this Friday at 536pm EST) – it is the DARKEST of Dark Moons.
That’s not necessarily Dark as in bad but definitely a time you want to take advantage of to let go of something.
Any Dark Moon is a time of Letting Go but none more so than the one right before a New Moon ECLIPSE and right at the end of the Zodiac at that.
The recent intensity should surely have shown you what you want gone – from your habits, your psyche, your life, your goals – whatever.
She let go. Without a thought or a word, she let go.
She let go of the fear. She let go of the judgments. She let go of the confluence of opinions swarming around her head. She let go of the committee of indecision within her. She let go of all the ‘right’ reasons. Wholly and completely, without hesitation or worry, she just let go.
She didn’t ask anyone for advice. She didn’t read a book on how to let go. She didn’t search the scriptures. She just let go. She let go of all of the memories that held her back. She let go of all of the anxiety that kept her from moving forward. She let go of the planning and all of the calculations about how to do it just right.
She didn’t promise to let go. She didn’t journal about it. She didn’t write the projected date in her Day-Timer. She made no public announcement and put no ad in the paper. She didn’t check the weather report or read her daily horoscope. She just let go.
She didn’t analyze whether she should let go. She didn’t call her friends to discuss the matter. She didn’t do a five-step Spiritual Mind Treatment. She didn’t call the prayer line. She didn’t utter one word. She just let go.
No one was around when it happened. There was no applause or congratulations. No one thanked her or praised her. No one noticed a thing. Like a leaf falling from a tree, she just let go.
There was no effort. There was no struggle. It wasn’t good and it wasn’t bad. It was what it was, and it is just that.
In the space of letting go, she let it all be. A small smile came over her face. A light breeze blew through her. And the sun and the moon shone forevermore…”
Am I ever happy that I re-subscribed to the monthly Ipsy Glam Bag! I came home last night to a shiny pink envelope of new beauty products! There is nothing better than getting a goody bag in the mail. Especially because I rarely get mail anymore unless its bills or government stuff.
This month’s bag is is a little piece of Spring with the Floral Fantasy collection.

I am in love with the Guess Summer 2015 Collection! I got a sneak preview of their new lookbook and had to share my favourites. This collection will be in stores May 2015. I love that they’ve brought back some of the classic pieces from the ’90’s. Yes I had a denim jumpsuit. Yes I might rock one again this year. I love the flirty floral patterns, the bright teal and coral colours and the cute dresses that can go from the office to date night.
Here are my top picks from the collection:
