Hi I’m Jenni,
Welcome to Unclutter Your Universe, a positive space, to peel back the layers and rediscover what makes us sparkle.
Way back since I can remember, I’ve been a lover of clothing & homewares and discovered that using my flare for organising brings a sense of calm to my world.
In my previous life as a social worker, I got a real buzz from supporting people to peel back the layers and acknowledge the good, bad and the ugly that had been part of their universe. I was privileged to be in a position, where I had the opportunity to help people, navigate their way through the process of making some very tough decisions. These decisions were often life-changing and led them down a very different path, from the one they had previously travelled.
Sadly, I knew deep down that as much as loved what I did. Working in such an emotionally charged environment with such extreme highs and lows and juggling a very heavy caseload, with much of it critical, was not good for my mental health. Eventually, I had to walk away, recharge the batteries and find some new avenues to explore.
On this journey, I discovered the wonderful world of blogging and decided to create my own special place in the blogosphere. A year on, I’ve uncovered my long buried love of clothing and homewares, fully understanding the benefits of a nurturing nest and an uncluttered life. There is an acceptance that being organised is who I am and need never again be ashamed of it. In fact, it is something to be proud of and a skill that is often in demand.
Combining all of that, with my love of supporting people to uncover what makes them sparkle is the next road that I’m headed down.
