24 Lessons To My Younger Self

by The Classic Brunette, 12:00:00 AM

I officially turned 24 on Thursday (my golden birthday) and it's been a BUSY week for me in my personal life. As you've probably noticed I took some time away from the blog since around Christmas and although I didn't mean for my absence to be this long and sporadic, I think it was a good move to take a break from the blog. I was getting overwhelmed, my heart wasn't in it for a little bit, but stepping away made me realize how passionate I truly am about my job! I've been coming up with some ideas for the future, some new projects, and how I can make TCB work better for both myself and you! On that note, today's post is one of the more personal ones. I'm sharing 24 lessons to my younger self that I've learned in my 24 years. Although the list is for me, it has lessons that I think are relevant to everyone at any age!

My Experience With The KonMari Method Of Organization

by The Classic Brunette, 2:18:00 PM
If you've been anywhere near social media recently I'm sure you've heard all about Marie Kondo and her magical ability to tidy up and organize. Her new Netflix show premiered on January 1st and everyone practically went crazy over the KonMari method and Marie's way of making you gain a new perspective on your living space and all the items you own. I had seen a bunch of stuff about the show on my social media feeds and decided to finally give the show a shot after getting fed up with my messy, overstuffed dresser drawers. Let me tell you guys up front, this show is going to basically be a hit or miss for you. I've heard some people talk about how Marie is "too cutesy" and "strange for talking to clothes" (don't worry, I'll explain in a bit!) but if you're willing to give her method a try I promise it can change how you view organization! Another warning, the photos I'm sharing aren't "goals" or even blogger-worthy today, I'm literally just sharing what my drawers look like after using the KonMari method. This post is definitely more information and personal experience based than anything!
