You probably spend an enormous amount of time and energy each year taking care of your family and buying presents for your loved ones. But, do you ever stop to spend a little time doing something special just for you? If not, this is the year to start! Give yourself a gift—the gift of living your most seductive life.
Christmas and Hanukkah are always special because you go all out to ensure that everything is perfect for your family. These holidays create the perfect taste of living a seductive life; candles are lit, flowers are arranged and your home is decorated beautifully. All the elements come together to capture a home filled with love—so why don’t you do this all year-round? Think about it. Isn’t this the time you decide to have friends over and entertain because your home looks the best it has ever looked? Remember this feeling of pride in your space and infuse this into your home all year long.
Now, think about what it was that made your home feel so fabulous? Was it the glimmer of your home being lit by candles? Or could it have been the flowers that made your space feel luxurious? Discover the essentials that made your home feel so amazing and seductive.
Designate a nice-sized container to always put flowers in. For the month ahead, fill this container with poinsettias, the red is bold and festive! As the seasons change, adapt your flower choice: for spring showcase tulips; and hydrangeas are splendid for summer. I used deep yellow fall calla lilies for the month of October and as the holidays roll around, I switched the flowers out for poinsettias. It’s a foolproof, no dirt, no mess and no fuss solution to always having a beautiful arrangement to greet you. Whatever flowers you love, fill your container or basket with those. These small changes will make all the difference and you will in turn begin to live a seductive life 365 days out of the year.
Creating this gift just for you is actually a great thing for everyone. The happier you are, the happier the people around you are. I promise it will be the best gift you’ve ever given yourself!
