Senses of Spring

Hello ladies,

Happy pre-spring! The weather is getting warmer here in Albuquerque and that can only mean one thing.. SPRING CLEANING.

This week I have a few household tips for sprucing up your humble abode for the freshest of days.

I will be giving a few hints on your 5 senses. Smell, touch, sight, hearing, and taste.

To being, freshen your home with a wax warmer but not any old wax warmer. Try putting Downey Unstoppables in place of the wax in order to get that fresh laundry scent.


What about touch? Clean up those roughed up wooden table legs with a little vinegar and canola old and there you have it. Smooth furniture for those spring get-togethers.


Third, my favorite component to any living area is adding fresh flowers. They lighten the mood and bring life into the space. You can make this your own by decorating a vase or picking flowers in your neighborhood instead of from the store.


Some great tunes I recommend for pre spring a slow and laid back. My friend is actually a local artist that was just featured on 104.7 The Edge. They are a great group of 20 something year olds who whose influences include Coldplay and Death Cab for Cutie. Check out Great States and their new song Arcadia via Spotify or iTunes to purchase.

Finally, I want to save your savory foods by covering them with a money saving alternative. Flower pots! Just add a string through the hole and decorate the outside for a great view and tasty treats (minus the bugs).


Hope you all are enjoying this time of year as much as I am right now. Pre spring brings so many great opportunities for new starts. Just do not forget the time change!

Remember to indulge in your 5 senses this week and I will be in touch with next week with another fresh find.
