I find Laura Vanderkam's guides to be immensely helpful reference books. My copy of her 3 guides What the Most Successful People Do... has tags and markers and it's a great resource to pull out for a few moments of grounding when I'm feeling overwhelmed by an endless list of to-dos.

I'm looking forward to adding a new piece to my wardrobe from the spring line of tranquiliT...I'm so over the cold weather and shoveling snow.
