Hello, world! My name's Jill, and I'm here to help. I've been there. We're all stressed from time to time, and when things are hectic, the first thing to go is our style, our fashion, our tiny bit of opulence and luxury that we allow ourselves. I think that's a crime. When you've taken 5 extra minutes to curl your hair, or put on a fun bracelet, you feel so much better the rest of the day. When you take the time to cook something special for dinner, it tastes so much better. If you put out a new floral arrangement, or make the dining room table, your home looks so much better.
I know what you're going to say. "But Jill," you're thinking, "all that takes time. And fancy meals and new things cost money, extra money that we don't have. This is a recession, after all!" I know what you mean. I don't think these things should cost more, though. That's why I've done my digging, and all of my research. I wanted these things in my life, but didn't want to pay more for them. And I didn't want them to take forever. I've come up with many, many ways to inject tiny bits of sparkle and fun into my life, without breaking the bank. Domestics by Jill is my pet project, my way of sharing all of those tips and tricks. I hope you all can use my tips, and even help me come up with new ones!
