As a avid Fan of HGTV for many many years when I heard about the HGTV #BloggerBlockParty, I immediately sign up to attend. An entire day of DIY and Expert Speakers was planned for everyone who attended! I must say the day exceeded my expectations. The entire day was simply amazing, from the greeting at the door, to every sponsor’s project area. I participated fully and met a lot of talented bloggers, who helped ignite my passion to add more creativity on my blog and in every area of my life.
Once inside I was encouraged to share my experience on social media, so I took advantage of the photo booth!! Check out all the fun we had by following the hashtag – #bloggerblockparty

Using your Intuition in Your Daily Life…
1. Acknowledge the role of your intuition. Cognitive science is giving more and more credit to the part our hunches and gut feelings play in our thoughts and behavior. You might mistakenly assume you’re making rational decisions when you’re really operating on autopilot. Just think of the times you’ve driven home out of habit while you were lost in thought about something else.
2. Stronger Intuition in Women. Even the experts are divided about whether women have stronger intuitions. Many studies suggest that women in general are more sensitive to emotional cues but individuals vary widely in their intuitive abilities.
3. Look for connections. Your intuitions are most reliable in the areas where you have the most experience and expertise.
