Disclosure: This post is brought to you by Everywhere Agency to talk about Macy’s and The 100 Good Deeds Bracelet, but thoughts and opinions are my own.
#100GoodDeeds is not just a phrase. It’s a lifestyle. It’s about changing the world, and doing it in the most fashionable way possible.

One day I will take photographs of the entire room, once it's finished of course, but to explain it a little, it's large area with a walk in robe and ensuite, and the main section of our bedroom is large enough that there's an alcove where my desk is set up (which is where I work each day), and we also have a sitting area with a lounge suite and television.

A couple of weeks ago I received a delivery of avocados from Avocados from Mexico, and I was challenged to come up with an idea on how to use those avocados in a creative way.
I have to say I almost didn’t accept this challenge, it took me a good week of contemplating and dreaming about avocados before I could come up with an idea, but I hate to not accept a challenge, I like being able to push myself and my creativity.
And, so I bring you:
