introducing: makeunder my march!
March 2nd, 2010     |    ExfoliatingLifeStyle

Today I’m excited to introduce a new series I’d like to create this month in honor of spring cleaning, making under, and authenticity. It’s called MakeunderMyMarch. I’ve been thinking a lot about the re-posts I made last week and I realized that it might be time to revisit the nuts and bolts of making under. Though I love dabbling in decorating, business advice, and inspiration, I hope to share the steps to making under most of all. The process is simple, effective, and inexpensive (read: free).

I also think this is a great topic to focus on as spring approaches. If you are anything like me, you are starting to get those spring J.Crew catalogs, itching to buy summery clothes, and hide those winter coats for good. Why not start making under now, so that when that great weather arrives your home is free of the accumulated winter clutter? Cabin fever, be gone!

In addition to spring cleaning and making under, I feel this is a great chance to share the good, the bad, and the ugly in my own space. Sure, my home looks pretty at first glance, as you’ve seen in Becki Schleis‘ photos of the living room, bedroom, and studio yesterday. Given how much I exfoliate and makeunder on a regular basis, it is not surprising that my home is relatively clutter-free and calming. But the truth of the matter is, just like everyone else, I have spaces where things are not quite organized or crammed due to lack of storage. And my intention this month is to share my makeunders in each part of my home with you here on MML. Not only will this help me face that giant pile of bags under my bed, but it might help inspire others to tackle their hall closets or junk drawers as well. We all deserve to live in a calm, peaceful space free of things that no longer serve our lives going forward.

The Game Plan

This week you will see re-posts about making under and a variety of other exfoliation projects I did last year. I hope some of these techniques work for you. Also, throughout the month I will be doing new makeunders in my apartment including the linen closet, hall closet, wardrobe, shoes, kitchen, office, and home desk.

Here’s to a fresh season and fresh space for us all!
