Re-Vamp Your Life For Summer!

Hello Everyone!

At the beginning of a new season, I always enjoy "re-vamping" my life. Whether that be organizing my room, getting a haircut, getting new clothes, I always like to do something different. Now that it is summer, I always do a huge re-vamp to my life. Since I am home a lot more in the summer, I want it to be a different space and me feel like it is completely de-cluttered.

Here is what I like to do:

First, I re organize all of the "table tops" in my room. My bookshelves, the top of my dresser, the top of my desk anything like that. Doing this makes me feel so organized and so refreshed because it always makes the space feel brand new.

Something I also like to do is re organize my bulletin board. I am a crazy person when it comes to keeping things that I think will hold sentimental value, but in reality, mean absolutely nothing. So at the beginning of summer, I took everything down from my bulletin board and I threw away things that I couldn't even remember the story behind. Now my bulletin board is filled with things that truly do hold value.

Next I will completely re-organize and de-clutter my closet. I am the queen of holding on to clothing that I never wear anymore, but feel that I need to keep. So this year I went through everything in my closet including bathing suits, jewelry, shoes, tank tops literally EVERYTHING and made sure that everything that I was keeping, I wore.
I also re-organized my closet in a way that was a lot more functional for summer. I put my sweaters and jeans in the back of my closet and moved my tank tops, t-shirts and short sleeves shirts to the center. This makes it so much easier to get dressed because everything that I can wear for the season, is right in front of me.

The final thing that I did this year and probably my favorite was I went through all of my makeup and all of my beauty products and threw away anything that I didn't use anymore. This was the most refreshing of them all because I had been keeping products that I wasn't even using and had probably expired. For example, I  had a bin of eye products that half of the things in there, I probably hadn't touched in a year. Now that bin is more than halfway gone because I got rid of anything that I wasn't using.
I also went through my "beauty closet", which sounds a lot more luxurious than it actually is because its just a linen closet that I would keep my over flow beauty products in. So I threw away a ton of beauty things that I hadn't touched in a while and got rid of anything that I didn't see myself using in the future.

Another thing that I would recommend doing if you wanted to "re-vamp" something other than your living space, is I would get a hair cut! I am trying to grow out my hair, so I'm not going to do that, but I would recommend it if you wanted a fresh start for the season!

I hope that you guys found this post helpful in making your space feel brand new for the new season!
