Your Mindful Reflection for 2019

Your Mindful Reflection for 2019

There is that specific week between Christmas and New Year Day when I don't know what day it is, the date, and I'm not keenly aware of the time. All I know is time is both passing quickly by and yet seemingly not passing at all.  This is the week where I spend many hours reflecting on the year that...

12 Small Acts of Self Care To Consider

12 Small Acts of Self Care To Consider

I am finding lately that the definition of self care for me personally means so much more than just exercising, eating well, and drinking enough water. I've found it also means taking the time to live the little things and pursue small moments of beauty because I am able to.  At the office this week I was setting up a...

The Importance of Reflection & Setting Intentions

The Importance of Self Reflection & Setting Intentions / A Life Adored

How are you? No, how are you, really?  When was the last time you honestly answered this question? Today we so often just mumble, "I'm fine, doing good" when asked how we are. Perhaps we answer in this way as to not burden others with how we really are, that maybe what's going in our lives is TOO MUCH. But guess...

An Invitation to Slow Down and Breathe

Joyeux Septembre! We hope this little post finds you well. As you'll see, it's a bit different from our usual newsletter.

The Importance of Morning Rituals

We are in the midst of hiring 1-2 new folks to join the Adored Vintage family and during the hiring process I like to ask a series of intro questions. One of these questions is "Describe your ideal day..." and I was amused and pleasantly surprised that almost every single person answered in a way that proved how important having...

Why Resolutions Don't Work...

Why Resolutions Don't Work...

I stopped making resolutions 9 years ago and never looked back. Resolutions don't work because they're temporary. They don't work because they don't really get to the heart of the matter.

6 Daily Self Care Rituals to Practice

"There isn't a perfect person somewhere, only a more perfect person we might become, and there isn't a paradise someone can lead us to unless it's the world we make ourselves..." - Shain, Merle. (1988). Courage My Love, Bantam. When I thought about starting the "Life Adored Project, 1,000 Simple Ways to Live Beautifully", I knew a big part of what...

Cultivating Feminity

Cultivating Feminity

I have always loved the idea of getting ready at a vanity. A couple months ago I decided to dedicate a corner of our bedroom to this girlish wish. I covered an old industrial cart with a big square of vintage linen, hung up a round vintage mirror, and organized all my makeup in vintage mugs, baskets, and bowls.  The sight...
