Week by week recently, I have been sharing the pieces of the lovely puzzle that will be The Salon in 2019 and today I am ready to share the last piece.
The Life Less Ordinary Roadmap is both a step-by-step guide to creating a life-less ordinary defined by the six pillars of Brocantehome – sanctuary, authenticity, well-being, creativity, routines and rituals and puttery treats – AND a life planner we will work together to build and use meaningfully. So it won’t be just another download soon to be buried in the mysterious corridors of your computer, but a pretty, working document you will use to develop and define a truly meaning path towards authentic bliss.
The Six Pillars of A Life Less Ordinary
I want you to believe that we truly can become our most authentic selves from the sanctuary of home, so all that I teach inside the BrocanteHome Salon begins with creating and managing a home that soothes your soul, inspires creativity and nurtures a sense of sanctuary.
2.Routines and Rituals
So together we bookend our days with domestic routines and nurturing rituals, creating a rhythm to our lives that ensure we never feel overwhelmed and always have time for the soothing of our harried minds and the care and feeding of those who depend upon us.
We commit to working not so relentlessly in our lives but ON them. To fashioning dreams for all our tomorrows that reflect both who we are and who we want to be, and to creating plans that turn our domestic dreams into our own blissful reality. Because life should be lovely.
Then we turn our focus inwards and consider our own well-being. How our energy, our hormonal health, our intimate life and our daily diet and exercise routines help us to create a truly authentic, meaningful life that in turn helps us be better partners, mothers and friends.
We study every aspect of our lives and examine all that is surplus to it, dedicating ourselves to learning all that which will help us grow and layer our life in loveliness. Giving our lives purpose beyond the very necessary, and carving space and time for our own brand of creativity.
And finally we decorate our lives with puttery treats, vintage frippery, sweet fragrant oils, candlelight and inspiring books. Because isn’t it true that it is the teeny, tiny things that all too often pass unnoticed, that truly help us create a domestic life less ordinary?
Could You Use a Roadmap?
This is for the woman who knows she needs change, but cannot for the life of her fathom, which direction to go in. It is for every woman who feels overwhelmed by the demands life is making upon her and needs gentle guidance out of the chaos lined rut she feels she is in. It is for the woman who wants to live more in line with who she truly feels she is, instead of being someone almost permanently in fire-fighting mode.
It is in short a prescriptive map towards domestic contentment and personal bliss. Taking in hygge, lagom and kintsugi along the way, and using what you already have, know and are as a springboard for your soul.
Just as I suggested with The Edited Woman, this isn’t going to be an easy journey: true change takes commitment, persistence and above all else the making of the very decision to change. For isn’t it true that we never make changes until something deep down in our soul whispers “enough”?
I am that voice. I am your soul whispering “your life is slipping away in a blur of busyness and its time for change”. I am that voice, and the Life Less Ordinary Roadmap a compass softly showing you the way.
If then you are ready, if you can taste change but do not know how to create it: if you are desperate for a framework for a life less ordinary and a supporting voice to whisper, this is the way, then the Life Less Ordinary Roadmap is for you, but you can only get it if you are a member of my Salon.
Want a breakdown of what is going to be included in the Salon in 2019 and how those pieces will fit together to help you create a life-less ordinary all of your own? Your wish is my command.
The Roadmap is your framework for a life less ordinary. The place where your BrocanteHome journey will start and quite the perfect way to pull together all the strings of a meaningful life long enough to create real change, make the very most out of all the other resources in The Salon and finally understand what it is YOU need to create a contented heart and home.
Once a month the Workshop will closely examine one aspect of your domestic or personal life, guided by the nine principles already established in the first set of immediately available workshops. With supporting workbooks, book recommendations and other resources for your inspiration included.
The Edited Woman
Next up we will take a weekly look at EXACTLY what it is you need to banish from your life in order to refine it. To clear away the emotional and physical clutter and to really get to the heart of what is and what isn’t necessary in your life. Already in beautiful progress in our SECRET GROUP, you can learn more about The Edited Woman here.
The Puttery Treats Club
A monthly source of daily little somethings to do to make life lovelier, the Puttery Treats Club is delivered once a month and comes with a thirty-day guide, a new seasonal routine, ritual and celebration, and a cosy book recommendation just right for the month ahead.
Built step by step within the Roadmap, the planner will help you to coordinate, plan, refine and organize your life so that by the end of the year you will have a clear path to a more authentic you, a more organized domestic life, and the routines and ritual you KNOW will make a difference, firmly in place for your tomorrows.
The Salon Blog
A Salon only blog focusing on Sarah Ban Breathnach’s beautiful Simple Abundance. Thought and inspiration garnered from her pages in order to further our own journey towards a life less ordinary.
The Festive Planner
A one stop shop for all things festive, in this section you will find all my Christmas resources and an extensive Christmas Planner it is truly worth printing ou on JAnuary 1st and putting your heart and soul into taking the headache out of Christmas next year with!
A re-invigorated calendar you can sync with your own Google calendar to incorporate all the daily routines, weekly rituals and monthly celebrations that are a part of the BrocanteHome way of life so you will always have reminders to live better right there in your own calendar.
Trello For Housekeepers
Redesigned for the New Year, Trello For Housekeepers is a one program organisational system created to help you plan your own life less ordinary journey, collate all the puttery treats you want to include in your day, keep lists of all things domestic and truly get on top of what it is to be a woman with a life of her own AND a busy house to run.
And Finally The Resource Library
With everything from recommended Ted Talks, to a library of book recommendations and a collection of helpful and inspiring PDF’s and planners salvaged from previous incarnations of The Salon (including my much loved 365 Housekeeping System!), the library is where you will find everything you need to inspire a meaningful, creative, organised life.
And that’s it: my plans for the Salon in 2019 – the year I am going all in and throwing everything I’ve got into helping YOU live better. There truly isn’t anything like it on the web in terms of value for money and a domestic hand to hold for a woman with a mind of her own (without hiring a wife/housekeeper/secretary/counselor/coach!) and this is the year I really want us all to go all in on creating lasting change!
Ready to Join?
The sale I have been running for the past month is still available for the next week or two and then its gone forever so if you are dithering NOW is the time to make the decision to grab monthly, annual or LIFETIME membership for HALF the usual price before the annual and lifetime options close completely!
Details of the sale are below but if you do have any questions, please feel free to ask.
Ok so most of my older products are for the next few weeks available on a Pay What You Want basis in my dedicated Sales Room and there is 50% off all Salon Subscriptions using the links below.
Pay What You Want is something I have done for the past few years as I have long been dedicated to sharing my work with as many women who want it as possible. Not all of the products I want to include are there yet and I will be adding more as the weeks go by. But do please use Pay What You Want honorably and truly pay what you can afford: in this way we help those who truly cannot afford to pay more than the bare minimum and I can afford to keep on offering this annually as a gift to all.
So that means you can use the coupon code “2019” to pay (and lock in for a lifetime!) the following prices:
The monthly subscription would go from $29.00 to $14.50. (Click here to pay monthly!)
The annual subscription would go from $299.00 to $149.50 (Click here to pay annually!)
And the LIFETIME membership will go from $399.00 to $199.50 – which means you would never again pay me a penny for your Salon subscription and trust me, The Salon is here to stay! ( Click here to pay for a lifetime subscription!)
These prices are not forever. In line with good membership practice, I am banishing both the annual and the lifetime subscription charges at the end of the year in favor of a flat monthly rate of $20.00. For the sake of accounting ease and fair play to all. While I have said this before and quickly lost my nerve (I am the most awful ditherer!), this time I will be sticking to my decision, so if you want to pay annually, and get the savings included, now is the time!
