Home Is In The Air

Recently I was asked to share what makes my house a home.  Is it the people I share it with?  My cozy corner where I curl up with a good book?  The weekly fresh flowers on my coffee table?  Cookies baking in the oven each Sunday?  The cozy blanket I wrap myself in each night?  Or the fragrance I’m greeted with when I walk in the door?  The truth is it’s all of those simple pleasures and so much more, that make my house my home. 

I may have captured my feelings in pictures while Air Wick ® captured theirs perfectly in video, and now we want to know what home means to you?  Simply post a photo of something that helps make your house a home on Instagram, Twitter, or the Air Wick US Facebook page and tag it with both #HomeIsInTheAir #Sweeps.  You’ll then be entered for a chance to win $500 towards a room makeover, and new Life Scents™ fragrances.  It’s that easy.  

Because “…your home isn’t just four walls, it’s the sum of everything you put into it.  It’s what’s there, in the air, when you’ve made your house a home.” So tell me loves, what do your four walls mean to you?  Truly, MKR

The Beauty Of A Girl Gang

There’s nothing like good coffee (or wine I don’t discriminate) and great girl talk.  Recently I found myself spending some time at Buckhead’s newest coffee shop, Corso Coffee, and in a two hour long conversation with a good friend and creative cohort of mine.  We chatted about work, husbands, family, travel, work, and even more work.  I stress the work part because as a creative entrepreneur I think there are few things as important as having someone, or even better yet a core group of someones, who understand you and what you’re working towards on a daily basis.  In fact last time I was in NYC my boss lady friend Roxy told me they have an entire group of women entrepreneurs who gather once a month to drink wine, chat and simply support each other, (which by the way Roxy I’m stealing your idea and forming my own creative girl gang).  The life of an entrepreneur is not an easy one and having people who understand it all is an absolute must.  And I’d even be so bold to say that it will play a very big part in if you succeed or fail.  So tell me do you have a go-to person or persons you can always confide in?  Truly, MKR

With Part I of our Midnight Kiss shoot being all about the traditional sentiment of marriage Part II is obviously all about what comes after the “I do’s”…the party.  And with this being our last shoot of the season, and the first published editorial of the New Year what better way to ring it all in than with a sparkly-dancing on tables-confetti flying kind of party.  Truly, MKR
