As a woman of style like you; your home is a huge part in being a fashionista. If you are like me, your apartment is extremely small. Take good care of your apartment, paint when it needs to be done, clean up after yourself, all apartments are not the same. Set up a simple routine that you follow everyday; if you have to vacuum everyday to keep your carpets looking clean then that is what you need to do, dust, make sure to clear away the clutter that builds up on a day to day basis. Pick up your child's toys and put them away. Treat your home as if it were a living model home; make your bed everyday, clean your bathroom everyday, a simple wipe down and wipe down your mirror and organize your toiletries, hang your towels as if you were in a plush hotel suite. Do the dishes, and to top it off, cook for you and your family.

Spread out when looking for any kind of home d├ęcor to keep from looking like an advertisement for the store you chose your favorite items to come from. Another tip is to not lose yourself to the design, make room for your essentials, like your books and DVD's on a shelf close to your entertainment center.

From your living room to the kids room organization is key, utilizing the space is a necessity.
