Need to learn how to sweat a pipe replacement in the bathroom? A Google-owned Youtube video comes to rescue. In fact, you have to wonder….how did we ever live without Google?
Feng shui isn’t just about painting a wall a certain color and hanging a windchime. Feng shui is more about understanding the way your house is representing your life.

It’s widely known that the number eight is regarded as the money number in Asia. And that idea is catching on here in the west, too. From phone numbers and addresses – even license plates – everyone’s looking to get as many eights as possible.

But the eight has more meanings that merely money and wealth, though that is why the eight is so popular!

Sometimes a house or office can feel uncomfortable, and there’s no real reason you can put your finger on to explain your uneasy feeling. Other times, it’s easy: someone has been there that was negative, ill or died. Homes and spaces often take on the energy of the previous occupants as well. There may be instances when you moved into a space and just felt like someone else was there, or the space just didn’t feel right – it’s because of lingering negative energy.
