Coming clean


Spring is finally on the way and that means welcoming crisp fresh air and warm sunshine back into our lives. It also means we’re coming clean!
For many of us, spring cleaning starts at home — the closets, the kitchen, the kids’ rooms, the garage (I’m tired just thinking about all that work!). I’m planning to move this spring, so I will be cleaning, organizing and downsizing, as well as discarding my extra clutter (a little is OK every now and then ... I don’t trust people with no clutter in their lives) to make way for my exciting start in my new home.
Spring cleaning also can mean cleansing and refreshing your mind, spirit and body, or your life in general. In our March issue, we offer ideas for calorie and carb friendly dining options and ways to clear and rejuvenate your mind, body and soul. You may not want to wear these gloves while doing the dishes, but make sure you check out our profile on artist Ellen Greene and the cool vintage leather gloves she paints with tattoo-esque images. And the profile of Dr. Tracy Tran, who volunteers with the Medical Missions Foundation, is sure to put a smile on your face.
Of course, we’re hoping you’ll be inspired to clean out your closets and fill them with the easy, breezy and ladylike looks featured in our Style department that are sure to make you say “Hello Sunshine!” From bold prints and floral prints, to colorblocking, neon and the super trendy “high-low” skirt (I’m definitely buying one this spring!), you should have plenty of ideas to put a spring in your step.
I’m also excited about our features this month. We’ve got taxicab confessions from female drivers — a rare commodity, cleanup efforts going on around the city this spring, and Elizabeth Ulrich explains why it’s OK to admit your lack of maternal instinct.
And we’re kicking off “coming clean” with your confessions straight from our Confessions Booth. Keep in mind, if you have something you want to get off your chest, you can do so anytime, 100 percent completely anonymously at
Also, please remember to vote for your favorite in our Make-Me-Over contest on our Facebook page through March 15. Thanks to the participating salons and boutiques they all look fabulous, but there can only be one winner — and she will be announced in April.


Spring is the official cleaning season, it's true, but it doesn't mean that the rest of the year we should neglect our homes. Since you're planning to move into a new house, you should consider the overhead door gainesville ga for your garage. Even if most of the times we use the garage not just for our cars, but also to store different household items, it doesn't mean it should have a common door.
