I joined facebook. Well, I mean, I personally have been on facebook since the time it was only for college kids. And I was in college for a looong time. I should’ve probably missed the facebook college boat because I was supposed to be out of college but that’s a whole other story. So designstiles. I started a like page for designstiles. TH has been trying to get me to start one since starting my blog almost three years ago. And I’ve been all, I hate facebook. It’s so lame. I only log on 232 times a day to prove how much I hate it. It’s like the Jersey Shore of websites. But it’s part of the job, the job of making a social media presence for my business. I get all shy girl when it comes to promoting anything I do and when I do, I get all critical of myself and nearly hide under the covers for the rest of the day.

But finally the light bulb went on, and I’m all like, Irene just do it. Like Nike. So I did. And as lame as it sounds, I felt pretty proud. Like I’m moving forward. Making strides and feeling confident about the business and brand I’m trying to establish. I need to just own it.

My goal is to make design feel more attainable. I work with people who are on a budget. Sometimes that budget is tiiight. And I don’t mean that in the slang sense. People don’t have a shit-ton of money to spend and I like saving people money because I can find nice stuff at affordable prices. I get joy out of that. Everyone wants to come home to a space they love but many times they just don’t know how to go about it. I am their guide. I’m here to make that design process feel less intimidating because often times I work with what people already own. I come in and fill in the blanks. Sometimes all it takes is moving some furniture around to feel like you have a brand new space. I love that. I’ve been doing it since I was a kid back when I’d never even heard of interior decorating. Live beautifully, it’s not that difficult to achieve.

Okay, off the tangent. Facebook. If you like me come and prove it here. I like totally like likes.

Happy Friday!
