12 Ways to Ease into Spring Wellness

unspecified-15-682x1024by Stefani Ellenbecker –  Spring is upon is in a big way, and naturally, with the change of seasons, we are all looking to spruce up our body, mind, home and heart. Sometimes it’s not about the big changes but more about the little ways we can implement wellness into our everyday lifestyle that really makes the long-lasting difference. I asked several W&D contributors how they plan to get into a wellness groove this April and they shared a few simple ways they are clearing out their head space, exercising more, eating healthier and getting outdoors to grab some fresh air. We hope this post motivates you and gives a few pointers on how to improve your health this spring. We would love to hear in the comments below what your wellness plans are as the weather warms up!

Bridget Borden, Studio 125 Manager: “I’m trying to incorporate wellness into my daily routine – I drink a mix of hot water, apple cider vinegar and lemon in the morning, matcha green tea throughout the day and hot water with Reishi in the evenings.  Also, I love my barre classes and am full into any challenges they offer.”

Colleen Eversman of  2ndTruth: “I’ve been going to The Firm and spinning at least twice a week + going to yoga in-between. I’ve also been trying to eat less bread and dairy (I did the Whole 30 and discovered that bread and dairy make me super bloated). Drinking at least my body weight in ounces of water – it turns out, staying well hydrated helps my skin not freak out. And, being outside with Ellie (my pup) to run her for at least 30 mins a day. It’s great for her health and surprisingly restoring for me to be outside.”  FULL ARTICLE

ApartmentTherapy.com has put together an amazing array of gingerbread houses that imitate architecture artistry. I can’t take my eyes away!

Thanksgiving Decorating, Tablescape and Centerpiece Tips and Ideas

2017-11-13_13-49-45

via Food & Wine –  We’re at Thanksgiving for the food, clearly, but décor and a beautifully set table are just as important a part of the big day as the turkey and sides (well…they’re close). Here, a few easy tips to make sure your table is Thanksgiving ready.

Fresh Linens

Send all of your linens (napkins, table runners, even a fancy apron for the chef) out to be dry cleaned so they’re pressed and ready for the big day.

Mismatch Your Tableware

Not everyone has enough matching glasses, silverware and plates for 20 plus people, so don’t hesitate to mix-and-match what you have. Keeping it all in the same color family will give your table an eclectic, but coordinated look.

Use Candles

Use a lot of them. Everywhere. No, you’re not trying to seduce your house guests, but the warm glow of (UNSCENTED!) candles is much more welcoming than overhead lights. Candlesticks are festive, but short pillar candles or votives won’t block the person dining across from you.
