Spring Cleaning: Closet Swap!

Now that Spring is here, it’s time to start purging the thick, heavy sweaters in your closet for the lightweight tops and flowy dresses.

Every 6 months, I look forward to doing my closet swap. I get to fall in love all over again with items that I haven’t worn in a while and discover pieces that I forgot I even had.

There’s a great feeling in doing this. Personally, it makes me feel renewed, refreshed and blessed to have clothes on my back. It’s also a great opportunity to give back by donating clothing wherever you can. That is something that is very dear to my heart.

Closet organization is also something I enjoy doing so much that I’ve blogged about it three times already here, here and here. Well, I wanted to share more closet ideas that may inspire you. Organization is key!

Haiti Cherie!

It was only 4 years ago that Haiti was hit with a catastrophic magnitude 7.0 Mw earthquake (Tuesday, January 12, 2010 at 16:53 local time). Major damage was caused in Port-au-Prince, Jacmel and other settlements in the region including notable landmark buildings like the Presidential Palace, the National Assembly building and the Port-au-Prince Cathedral.

Haiti is the first independent nation to gain independence in 1804. It’s motto on the traditional coat of arms says it all: “L’union fait la force” (“Union makes strength”).

Although this Caribbean country has been tested, tried and damaged, it will always remain Haiti Cherie: “La Perle des Antilles” (The Pearl of the Antilles), because of its natural beauty.
