It's #podcasttuesday 🎙️ and we are thrilled to announce that @alvinwayne is our inaugural guest for our interview series "Spark in Our Lives" where we interview amazing people who have truly inspired us- by, well, lighting a spark in our lives!
In a world where things can be pretty gloomy, people like New York City Interior Designer, Alvin Wayne, not only make it beautiful from an aesthetic standpoint, but with passion, and soulful creativity through genuine affirmations on his Instagram stories. We highly encourage you to follow him for morning inspo, btw!
We have a wonderful, moving, fun conversation with Alvin! Hit play to shift your mindset, especially when he answers the question, "what does a life well lived mean to you?" chill bumps. Swipe left for a teaser.
Celebrate you! 🥂
It's easy to get down on yourself- even in January. Many think that the beginning of the year also means you're supposed to have all of your sh*t together... but guess what, January is also a month where people really struggle. It's not just the holiday season.
Be gentle with yourself. Celebrate the wins. Don't concentrate on the misses. Take some time each day to be thankful, not just for what presents itself to you, but what you do for yourself, and for others.
Today is #HouseplantAppreciationDay
If there were ever something that deserved a national holiday, well, these green babies definitely deserve one for all they do for us.
Being minimalists, there are certain things things that are important in our home- things that bring joy, and are necessary. Plants are included. Let us tell you why:
🌿Houseplants help reduce stress.
🍃Houseplants help your overall physical health.
🌵Plants help boost productivity.
🌲Plants and natural elements help improve your outlook on life and work.
🌳Houseplants improve air quality.
🌱Did we mention, they improve the overall aesthetic of your home?
We could go on and on. If you'd like, you can head over to our blog and peruse an entire section on the subject. Link in profile.
We hope you take some time today to recognize houseplants for all they do (especially in the winter). Add a plant to your home. Propagate a plant and give one to a friend. Learn more about how to care for houseplants. Name them. All of ours have names, and believe us, they begin to have personalities after a while, and you'll take better care of them!
It's gonna be a great year! We're only manifesting the good sh*t!
We hope you'll join us for our virtual podcast launch party, this Tuesday, Jan. 4th at 7pm EST!
We're so excited to finally, officially, launch "The Arner Adventures Podcast!"

There are no words that are fitting enough.
Betty Marion White Ludden felt like a part of our family, for my (Shannon) entire life. Of course, our Betty White was named after her. We've dreaded the day that we'd hear this news, and cannot believe it is today.
This photo, we created last year, in a fun series, to celebrate @bettymwhite 's 99th birthday. What a beauty then, and now. She was always gorgeous, and graceful!
When I was 9, I wrote her a letter, telling her how much I adored her, and that she reminded me of my Grandma Mary, and how much of a Golden Girls fan I was. She wrote me back, sending me an autographed photo, which I still have today (swipe left).
This world is a little brighter having had Ms. Betty White in it, and today, heaven is, too.
Rest in peace, Ms. Betty. We sure will miss you here. Our sweet Betty White will carry on your name, proudly!
