Personalize your space

Sarah Fishburne, the woman behind Trend and Design at The Home Depot, shares her tips for making design decisions for the home that reflect individual style, and taste.

- Pull pictures of homes you like, looking for finishes, paint colors, molding ideas, kitchen designs, and more.

- Decide what from your previous home you want to keep, and what it needs to fit and coordinate with.

- Identify if there is a focal point for each room, like a piece of art, rug, cabinets, or sofa.

- Use these elements to help create a palette and a tone for the house.

Around 60 kilos (132lbs) difference.  It took me around 2 years.. and what i did basically i change the way I ate.. I quit refined sugar, like soda, cakes, ice creams, pastry etc.. and I increased my intake of vegetables and fruit, I started to drink lots of plain water, and I started using stevia and instead of buying processed food I cook my own desserts sugar free.. that’s the biggest change that brought me where I’m now.

I know it’s a little late but in honor of Coming Out Day here’s a comparison. The left was when I came out to everyone four and a half years ago at a school assembly. The right is from today. I wouldn’t be where I am on the right if it wasn’t for the person on the left not letting people dictate her decisions anymore. Coming out changed my life for the better. Happy National Coming Out Day.
