Trends come and go but one thing that hasn’t changed is products that are adorable will always be popular! Right now, cactus, florals and pineapple products are the go-to cute symbols.
Truthfully, I am fully guilty of jumping on board of the on-going pineapple trend and own more than a few products that fit into the category. And I’m not ashamed! Why are pineapples so popular? Honestly, I have no idea.
Fun fact: It takes a pineapple almost 3 years to go from seed to fruit!
Now, I’ve put together a list of pineapple products that are too stinkin’ adorable to pass up!
I don’t know about you, but my online shopping carts are full. My husband will just have to understand that our house is now pineapple heaven.
Now that you’ve read my article, which of the products above do you love the most? Do you have any other awesome pineapple products to share? Share with us in the comments!
Christmas trees, hot cocoa, snowmen and presents. Yes, in the words of Ned Stark, “winter is coming.” But last time I checked, it is still August which means Autumn will be here sooner.
Now, I’m not hating on all the terrific winter traditions. Come November 1st I will be unpacking all of my festive decorations just like all the other holiday lovers out there. Until then, we still have so many wonderful things to look forward to!
Fall is a time for change! I live in the desert so I have to miss the beautiful color changes. To help get into the Autumn spirit, I personally have a huge “Fall Bucketlist” set up each year that I work energetically to get through. Apple picking, hayrides and designing the most epic halloween costume! But one of the best things that is always near the top of my list? Decorating my home!
I know that I cannot be alone in this, so I’ve decided to go ahead and check out what the fall trends are this year. I’m even going to share them right here, for you! Bonus: They are all under $40!

I love that feeling when you’re scrolling down a website and you come across a picture that is just… so satisfying to look at! Not only can certain images make you happy but they can help you focus and curb anxiety.
Just by looking at some pictures? Yes please!
These can be photos of sunsets on the beach, beautiful flowers or intricate patterns. What makes me feel gushy inside? Beautiful monochromatic photos. *Drool*
I have done the work for you and found beautifully satisfying colorful photos. Enjoy the ones I’m sharing here or click the links to the Pinterest boards. (I’m constantly adding new color porn!)

“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” – Maya Angelou
Every creative has hit that same roadblock… what do I do next? Where do I go from here?
There are ways to get away from the creativity block and back into your creative bubble! In fact, I’m going to give you a long list of ideas to get you started!
Go for a walk. This Stanford study provides evidence that walking outdoors on average boosts creativity 60% more than just sitting outdoors.
Listen to music. If you’ve ever heard of The Mozart Effect then you know that it’s believed that listening to classical music can stimulate your mind. While it isn’t completely clear if this is true for everyone, it is believed that listening to classical music for 10-12 minutes can boost creativity and concentration. However, it has also been said that if someone does not like classical music, they shouldn’t rely on it to boost creativity. A safe bet is to listen to something that you enjoy and know.
Try something new. If you’re having a hard time coming up with new ideas then you may need to step out of your comfort zone. Forcing yourself to try new things pushes you to see things from a different point of view. Using the previous examples in this post: Listen to a new genre of music or take a different route on your walk.
Exercise. It’s true, it’s possible to stay fit and boost your creativity at the same time! Aerobic activity can relieve stress, relax your body and free up your mind as proven through this study. So go jump on that elliptical or do 100 jumping jacks. Either way, it can help!
Keep an idea book. Every time that you have a new idea, write it in your book. This way when you have a brain fart you can look back at your book of genious thoughts and get creating again in record time!
Get busy. Have you ever noticed that when you’re extremely busy you tend to spend a lot of time thinking about what you’d rather be doing? So do something that you don’t necessarily enjoy but will keep you busy for a bit. By the end you may have some new ideas.
Unplug. No tv, internet, cellphone. No technology period. Just relax and let your brain wander on it’s own without any other stimulation.
Use color. Grab something colorful to draw with. Markers, paint and/or crayons. Make it a goal to fill an entire piece of paper. It doesn’t need to look good, just doodle away!
Write. Write about anything and everything. Dedicate one page of paper and write anything that comes to mind. Applesauce. Dry shampoo. Blonde hair. Hair ties. Rubber band. Stapler. Secretary. Library. It may be gibberish but I’m sure somewhere in that page of word you’ll feel inspired.
