"If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude." Maya Angelou

Yes, we all get in a funk once in awhile, and sometimes it can seem very hard to get out of it.  All of us have experienced the blues in one way or another, but even the smallest of changes can lift our spirits.  Negative feelings are a part of life, but dealing with them in a healthy way hopefully helps us let go of them quicker.

The trick is to encourage our own self to make some changes to help us towards emotional well-being.  Simple changes like going for a brisk walk, meeting a good friend, petting a puppy, or listening to your favourite tunes can lift our spirits in such a positive way.

Speaking of changes, now that we have put winter behind us, it's time to move our closets around.  Yes, even our closets can look like they are in a funk!  So, let's lighten the mood with beautiful colours and lightweight fabrics.  Turn that music on and spend some positive energy lifting your closet's spirits!

Raffinee is here to help.  First, go through your closet and determine what stays and what goes.  Taking inventory will help you make good choices when you are shopping for new clothes.  You may need new outfits or you may buy some smart pieces that go with what you have kept.  And remember, even buying a new accessory like a necklace or a bright scarf will update an old favourite, making it timeless!
