Thank you Decoy for sponsoring this post. Elevate your occasion with Decoy wines.

I have a busy full-time career as an attorney, run my own small business and travel as much as I can. It goes without saying that there’s never enough hours in the day, but I’ve perfected a few simple and foolproof ways to make make everyday life feel a bit more luxurious and elevated, particularly when I’m short on time and stress levels are high.

Surround yourself in super soft fabrics.

Invest in a few high-quality wardrobe pieces and blankets. Having soft comfortable fabrics against my skin make me feel ready to take on the day, while there’s nothing cozier on a brisk evening than cuddling up in an oversized plush blanket.

Cream colored everything.

Cream is always in style and instantly elevates your wardrobe or home. Cream colored throws, accent pillows or bedding will instantly brighten a room. Cream clothing and accessories are chic and timeless.

Use essential oils.

Essential oils can be used to boost your mood, reduce stress and even help you sleep. If you don’t already have an aromatherapy oil diffuser, I’d recommend putting one on your wish list. I got one as a gift and absolutely love it.

Illuminate your home with candles.

I love visitors, but having last-minute company stop by when you haven’t had time to prepare can be stressful. Lighting candles around your home and outdoor living space is a quick and easy way to make a space more inviting and intimate.

Use a car detailing service.

Keeping my my home immaculate seems like a daunting and impossible task when life gets so busy that I hardly know which way is up. When you crave some order and organization in your everyday life (but can’t even manage to make it home in time for the housekeeper to come), detailing your car can offer a simple temporary solution, particularly if you spend a lot of time driving or stuck in traffic. I was hooked after trying a car detailing service for the first time – one quick phone call and I can have my car detailed right in my office’s parking lot without any interruption to my work day.

Sleep on a silk pillowcase.

Sleeping on a silk pillowcase immediately elevates your bedding situation and helps you drift off to dreamland in style. As an added bonus, sleeping on silk helps prevent wrinkles and your hair from tangling if you toss and turn at night.

Un(wine)d after a long day.

A busy schedule is often unavoidable, so after a hectic day I look forward to unwinding with a glass of red wine. I always try to keep a few bottles of my favorite wines on hand at home. I love Decoy’s Pinot Noir, but go for their Chardonnay when I’m in the mood for white. Check out Decoy’s website to learn more about these wines and the brand’s other varietals.
