Why are our leaders not doing more about our air quality? Why do we have to resort to air masks, purifiers, humidifiers and filters just to enjoy a day in Utah? In preparation for winter I recently got on prescription nasal allergy spray just to deal with the daily symptoms of coughing, sneezing and itching. Being in Texas this week made me realize to not take for granted driving with the window open, running around outside and just inhaling some fresh air. In the mean time get yourself a mask and don’t be afraid to sport it and protect your health. 😷🤧😪

If you’ve been contemplating a gallery wall, but aren’t quite sure how to execute it; don’t fret, they’re tricky, but not impossible. I have some tips that might help you out:
1. Choose. Make sure the wall is the right wall. It needs to have a large open space, or even better - is the first wall you see as you enter the room. It should be a blank canvas wall. This wall will become your feature wall - it’s meant to capture attention, bring your guests eyes in, and have them step towards it. ·
2. Conceptualize. Know that your gallery wall, although filled with many separate pieces, should be seen as one large art piece. Therefore it needs to make sense. Think of your gallery pieces as chapter titles in a book. You’re the author, and your reader should be able to follow along with it’s plot. ·
3. Stylize. Make sure it is true to the space. If a linear, black and white gallery makes sense then make it happen. If eclecticism makes sense, then pick your frames well, and make sure the content within supports your spaces theme.
4. Mix. If you have a table below the gallery, then you might have flowers pots, clocks, desk pictures, etc, work into the theme of the wall behind it. It creates depth. You can also mix items into your gallery other than framed art like baskets, shelving, sconces, antlers, mirrors, etc. ·
5. Stage. Planning your gallery can be tough. Sometimes your walls call for exact spacing, sometimes they can appear more free-hand. Whatever the concept - I recommend that you measure out your wall area, then transfer those same dimensions to the floor beneath using painters tape. You can then start arranging your collection within the outline on the floor until you’re happy with it. Once you’re happy with the layout, be sure to take an overhead picture of your gallery. Moving your gallery one piece at a time, from floor to wall should be a piece of cake at this point.
Good Luck! Please feel free to ask any questions you might have, and tag me in any of your own projects. I’d love to see your work!!!
Don’t forget, that I’m also a realtor in the Salt Lake City area and would be thrilled to represent you in buying or selling your home. DM me ;)
Sometimes you just need to say “no.”
The holidays can be a beautiful, wonderful time, full of connection and tradition. But, for a lot of people, it’s also a time of stress, overcommitment, and emotional triggers. 🎄 If you’re feeling the weight of this time of year rather than merriness and brightness, make sure to give yourself the extra space, time, and room you need.
Ground yourself. Create healthy boundaries. Sometimes saying “no” is the best form of self-care there is.
Some experts say we neglect self-care because it’s associated with selfishness and lazy, over-indulgent behavior. To that I say a big, fat “NO.” You can’t pour from any empty cup, so make sure you fill yours. 🚰💕#selfcareishealthcare#cheerstoyourhealth
I really enjoyed my visit with these two last weekend! Their home in Sandy, Utah , nestled beautifully between two amazing mountain ranges, is warm and inviting, with their butahfully (haha) decorated real tree and Christmas lights inside and outside! Everything was so pretty and festive! 🎄🎆 It was awesome having them show me around Salt Lake City a bit more too!! We saw mountains AND city, as well as a farm with beautiful horses and farm animals set against a picturesque mountain view! Couldn't believe the diverseness and charm of this area! Both graphic designers after their studies at the University of Cincinnati, Lauren works in Salt Lake City and Alec in Provo! I am always inspired to be around such creative minds! Also, I not only tried chicken and waffles for the first time, they took me to the BEST place on Earth to try them!! After our visit, Dewey went Over the River and through the woods to Grandmother's house we go, to Arizona ! 😁 ... A perfect time together to celebrate their one month of being an engaged couple! Alec pointed out the mountain top that they were on when he asked her to be his wife on 11-11-17..... ♥️🏔️. Alec + Lauren ♥️🏔️ @jolly_turtles & @newtonle23 🐴🐾🐕🦌♥️🔆

I attended one of the best concerts of my life last night. Those that know me, know how much I love Lady Gaga. I really discovered her voice beyond her early pop years of “just dance” a few years ago when she did a sting cover on YouTube and it blew me away beyond words. I started researching more about her and her music and listened to probably every interview ever done with Lady Gaga. Last year when her Joanne album released, was the hardest time of my life to date and her music in a lot of ways saved me. She is so beautiful on the inside and extremely charitable. I feel like with most music pop idols there is a great voice but then their is is lack of raw soul and substance beyond the talent. Lady Gaga is Soul. She is authentic and raw. I feel like she bares it all for the world to see and those willing to really listen to her, feel and resonate with the love she has for music and for the world. She acts as a good omen for me and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Thanks to my mama bear @shellydaw22 for getting us tickets for Christmas. It was a night I’ll never forget. I am a major @ladygaga super fan. This photo is of her ending the show with a Big Bang. Music is my way to god and it always changes me. It’s gotten me through a lot and I am grateful. #ladygaga#slc
...it’s no different...if you dont have any shadows you're not in the light. #gaga
I had a blast this week at AGU presenting my research as part of the Utah Winter Fine Particulate Study. I am on the planning committee for the annual Air Quality: Science for Solutions conference that will take place March 29th. There will be scientific presentations and a public forum for the community. If anyone would like to submit an abstract for presentation or would just like more information about attending let me know. http://harbor.weber.edu/Airqualityscience/
All that I know for certain is that I am alive
In THIS MOMENT
With THIS LIFE
... that I have been so truly blessed with. I have a faith - a faith in something that can move mountains - a faith that keeps my vision of fyyia 🔥
I am so grateful for every opportunity, failure, experience, and person that has been in my life because without them, I wouldn’t be the woman I am today.
The difference between who I was 6 months ago and the woman who I am growing into now is simply my mindset and faith. My perception of reality and also myself; what I deserve, and what others around me deserve, which is love.
I have consistently asked myself these questions:
-“What can I do differently that is going to set me apart from the masses and help build my legacy of love?”
-“How are my actions going to bless others around me and build a legacy of love?”
-“Where is my energy being invested today? Is it being strategically used or abused?”
Ask yourself WHAT are you doing with your time - are you using it or wasting it - because I promise you don’t want to wait to live before it’s too late.
