I was recently asked to “pay it forward” to people I might not usually purchase a gift for. Homegoods/TJMaxx/Marshalls are my favorite stores, so when they asked me to shop at their stores, it was an easy decision. Another easy decision was deciding who to purchase gifts for. I tried to choose items that truly captured my recipients’ character and spirit. My first stop was TJMaxx...My aunt … [Read more...]

As … [Read more...]

And then Homegoods saved my marriage here! Ok, so you get it. I love them. They recently contacted me about their Homegoods Happy Home Resolutions. Would I show how accessories can bring life to a space? Could I show examples of … [Read more...]
