Coffee & Conversation
It’s the weekend! PTL!
Grab a cup of coffee. Wrap yourself in a blanket. And let’s take a look at the week in review including some of my favorite blogging finds…
What a week it has been here.
I shared an update to the post I wrote last December on How to Get Featured in a Magazine.
American Farmhouse Style is featuring two of my DIYS in this year’s printed holiday issue. They gave me the pre-order link for anyone who would like to order one!!
I love fall, but I can already smell the cinnamon, spice, and everything nice about Christmas.
I am honored to be part of this publication!
Remember this side table that I was refinishing with the fabulous products from Dixie Belle Paint?
It is finished, and it is FABULOUS. Stay tuned this week!
Most exciting of all this week is that I was finally able to announce the launch of our digital, interactive women’s home and health magazine, the imPERFECTly emPOWERed Journal and the imPERFECTly emPOWERed Podcast coming to your preferred audio or visual platform on January 1, 2022.
Let’s break down all that’s included in the imPERFECTly emPOWERed Journal, and how you can check out the first issue for FREE!
Lots of delicious seasonal inspiration that you may have never tried before. This month’s issue is all about pumpkin (which if you are anything like me is not hard to get excited about).
What woman doesn’t want quick and simple ideas using normal household products to make life easier?
That would be me.
Cleaning, organization, skincare – our team finds the best hacks to save you money and time!
Step by step tutorials for seasonal crafts, practical projects, organizational ideas, home decor – fear LESS do MORE.
Inspirational ideas for home decor, design, entertaining, hosting, organization – ways to help make your house a home that you can love.
There is a really fun guest post coming for this section in the December issue with a super cute DIY to go with it!
HEALTH & WELLNESS
Evidence-based health and wellness advice with practical strategies grounded in research to promote healthy living.
Stay tuned in this section. There is an incredible article coming from an expert on mental health especially as regards children and managing stress.
Fun ideas for kids to promote creative development, safe entertainment, and encourage time spent together.
Seasonal clothing, decor, shoes, kitchen items, and product recommendations to make shopping fun! [Just WAIT for December’s issue]
These are only a few of the sections in the digital magazine, but let’s chat about the sections of the magazine that I am most excited about!
It has everything to do with starring YOU.
It includes prizes and giveaways and happiness.
Things we could all use more of.
Every month in the journal there will be a Transformation Inspiration Challenge to help motivate and inspire productivity and progress.
How it works is this – upload a before and after to the gallery of any transformation.
It could be as simple as a closet cleanout, as complicated as a kitchen makeover, or as life-changing as fat loss.
Every month one entrant will be randomly chosen to win a gift card. Progress deserves to be celebrated!
Another super fun section is the exclusive chance to meet and ask questions of upcoming imPERFECTly emPOWERed Podcast guests.
There is a chat feature to submit your questions under the guest’s bio, and I will try to include as many of them as possible in my interview.
This month’s issue introduces 4 AMAZING women who are coming onto my podcast, and you do not want to miss the chance to ask them your questions!
Have fashion questions? Want tips on how to put together easy outfits that look custom designed? Need ideas for budget-friendly home decor, how to become a better host, makeup tips to feel more confident?

I’m already planning for Thanksgiving, and these honey caramelized brussel sprouts are a great side dish.
And this holiday cranberry sangria looks light and refreshing!
Have a great weekend!
