Coffee with Candi 7-27-2018

(Last Updated On: July 26, 2018)

Welcome to Coffee with Candi, a time for us to have a chat every week on Friday and catch up.

Well, I’ll have a chat with you about my week…what’s been happening, the good the bad the exciting, the boring…most importantly, what have I learned about life, my family, my friends, work, health, looking my best…I’ll spill it honestly and openly with you. Always with a fresh cup of hot, black coffee in my hand. I think better with java in my paw.

And, I’ll share one special thing that has brightened up my week, so it can potentially make you smile, too. It might be a new gadget, a piece of furniture, a nifty clothing find, a recipe, or something to make your life easier. It’s my gift to you that will keep on giving. 🙂


What’s on my mind this week:

in no particular order…however the thoughts came into my little head

Coffee with Candi Inspire My Style


Coffee with Candi Inspire My StyleGosh, it’s been a busy week! I think it’s because I was gone for the previous week, and even though I can work online from any location, my local staging business waited for my return. So it was work, work, work for several days, preparing for a large job. That was completed yesterday so I can breathe again.

Having said that, though, my online business is a full time job, so I’m not sitting around eating bon-bons 🙂

As I mentioned last week, I’m transitioning from a locally based business to a destination based business. As such, I believe I’ve completed my last home staging job. I’ll still take on design clients as that is a different type of work, and I’ll fit the clients into the schedule when I’m able. So I’m looking forward to a  new chapter in my life!

What’s been happening in your life lately?


Coffee with Candi Inspire My StyleAs if I didn’t have enough going on in my life between my work and family, I decided that it was time to update the look and feel of Inspire My Style, including the logo.

I wanted to use a lighter color palette, and although the lady in my logo was very stylish, I always felt that the steaming coffee might be mistaken for cigarette smoke. Yuk.

So I contracted with an artist to create a new logo, and I’m pretty happy with it. And yes, it looks like me, right down to the hair and glasses. Pretty hilarious.

I still have quite a bit of work to do, to get the look and feel of the site where I want it, but am happy so far with the changes.

What do you think? Any suggestions?



Coffee with Candi Inspire My StyleOne Special Thing – Meaningful Beauty Skin Care System

meaningful beauty from Cindy CrawfordFor awhile now I’ve been searching for skin care products that will benefit my over 60 face. I’ve tried a number of different regimens and products, and have found one or two that I like, but it is one (expensive) product, and not an entire system.

So, I recently decided to try a system for maturing skin that’s been around for awhile. I’ve passed by the infomercials, skimmed the ads in magazines, but never really paid attention to it.

I was at the airport a week or so ago, waiting for my flight, and the TV in the terminal was on, showing Cindy Crawford and her ‘Meaningful Beauty’ skin care system. So…I was a captive audience for about 10 minutes.

And, I found that I liked what I was hearing about the product as well as the price. A few days later I ordered the system to try, and the total cost for everything shown here + a couple of freebies was less than  $50. This supply should last about 30 days.

This is a subscription program, so every 90 days or so (whatever I decide) I’ll receive a new supply.

So…I will give Meaningful Beauty a try and let you know what I think of it. I’m willing to pay for something that works!

Have you used Meaningful Beauty? Or, another skin care system that you love? Tell us about it!

  • Hi Candi, another enjoyable coffee with you. I noticed your new logo earlier this week and love the colours. I did like your previous one and I never actually thought about the steaming coffee and cigarette smoke. I’m always changing things up on my website (as you may have noticed 🙂 ) but it is good to keep it dynamic. I’m keen to hear more about your new destination based business. Have a great weekend and look forward to our coffee next week.
