One of my favorite features on Instagram is the Save folder. Instagram is for me such a source of inspiration and to be able to save the picture you come across into your own kind of mood board is so great.
In this day and age where we constantly are caught up in consumerism, it's nice to fill your home with objects that have a deeper meaning than just being pretty.
Ever since I remember my mum had the bowl with the two stone eggs in her living room that I wasn't allowed to play with as a kid but was always very fascinated by the look of them. I still think they are so beautiful and was very happy when my mum decided to gift them to me. Now they are sitting on my coffee table reminding me of my mum and how something so simple as an egg shape can be so beautiful.
Thank you Mum!
I'm not gonna lie, it feels very bittersweet to be back home in London. Bitter because I already miss my family in Sweden and loved just hanging out with my mum, dad, my sister, brother in law and my two nieces. Home feels really empty especially when the boyfriend is away too. Sweet because it's soon new year and I have a feeling that 2018 is gonna be a very exciting year.
From one thing to another. I have thought a lot about consumerism lately and how we overconsume (yes me too, I'm guilty, but I'm trying to get better). I realized that the pieces I love the most in my home are actually the pieces that give me a certain feeling, say for example this leather pouf. I bought second hand for 20 pounds when I was a poor student and lived in my apartment in Gothenburg, I wanted one for years and was so happy when I found this in such good condition and for a pretty good price. I sometimes wonder who has owned it before and where he or she got it, and I love that this pouf has traveled and have had many homes. It has a history so to say, like in the old days when things were rarely bought new and instead inherited until it broke.
What I want to say with this is that my leather pouf really sparks joy as organizing guru Marie Condo would say! My aim is definitely to have fewer things and only keep the pieces I truly love. Quality not quantity. Goals for 2018.
Now last day of work for 2017! Until then Happy New Years!
It might be spring and the whole idea of spring cleaning, or just simply me being fed up with having my shoes all mixed up and hard to get a good overview of, that made me once and for all organize my shoes. Whatever reason it might have been I must say I am pretty happy with my current shoe situation, and it really does inspire me more to pick different shoes in the morning since it's no so easy! It's not rocket science how I did this, so I will let you scroll down to see for yourself.
I chose to write the brand on the photo to make it even easier
You can even use it as side table in your bedroom ( Gotta love a multi-purpose )
All you need is this little guy and a marker pen
Easy peasy lemon squeezy, right?! Note to myself: Never throw away an empty shoe box ever again!
