Happy New year!

Here in Fernandina Beach, while NYC does the famous ball drop at midnight, we have our own unique celebration. At 7 pm, a giant lighted shrimp descends, marking our love for the famous Mayport shrimp. It’s a family affair filled with music, delightful food from local vendors, and the warm glow of community spirit. The night crescendos with spectacular fireworks illuminating the harbor. Welcome to 2024!

I’ve got 5 great tips to help you get organized without feeling anal. So, grab your favorite throw pillow, and let’s declutter, streamline, and infuse some serious Darlene-style pizzazz into this year! Ready to rock it? Let’s do this!

Tip #1: Conquering Makeup Mayhem!

Alright, glamour gurus, let’s spill the tea (or, in this case, the makeup)! If your cosmetic collection grows faster than a beach house garden, you’re not alone. I mean, does makeup secretly multiply when we’re not looking? I get it; mornings should be about coffee sips, not endless product searches. So, here’s my secret to a 5-minute face without the morning madness: drawer organizers. Yes, those magical compartments that turn chaos into coordinated chicness. Trust me, when your lipsticks, mascaras, and brushes have their designated spots, mornings become a breeze. Efficient, fabulous, and ready to conquer the day—one perfectly organized lipstick at a time! For your convenience, I’m linking mine here:
