The house of MAG

hola, I''m meg!

I’m Meg Magdaleno
from The House of Mag.

I'm an artist and clinical trauma therapist with interior design experience who's aiming to retire early after becoming debt-free. I've fallen down 7x, and got up 8. Welcome to my little home on the internet. As my house guest you'll learn budget-friendly design tips & tricks, that mental and spiritual health totally matter, and how to laugh at your mistakes. My clothing brand is for those who refuse to give up, and always strive to give back.

"The words you speak become
the house you live in."

- Rumi

Meditate on that a minute, mmkay. 

ESFJ, also known as "The Caregiver" or
"The Consul," is one of the 16 personality types identified by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. People with an ESFJ personality type tend to be outgoing, loyal, organized, and tender-hearted. ESFJs gain energy from interacting with other people.

Helping people is in my DNA. I was made to love, care, and encourage people to create a life and home they love! I'm not here to inspire folks to me more like me. I'm here to cheer people on to be more of who they are.
