This kitchen is simply amazing! I love how the cupboards go all the way up to the ceiling! That is a must-have in my future kitchen. The thought of getting rid of the sticky greasy stuff that just draws dust to itself makes me all warm and happy inside! Functionality first.
My big issue: floors. Dark? White?
I figured that all floors looking the same, that would be the nicest. All-white or all-dark brown(-ish).
But then, I re-figured and realized that a compromise is alright. Maybe even better than having it all the same.
What would you say?
Yes, the bedroom wallpaper has officially been torn off/down/apart. Fun! The weird thing is it kinda looks better now than before... not good, more like... we're making progress and that feels great! There's also a hole in the wall where a door will be put in sometime in the future.
(at least some days will be recapped like this... other posts are more fun though, haha)
Such a fun idea to make something ordinary a little bit extraordinary! I'll be off to a shop to get me some clips to work with as soon as I have time... Imagine, it would be such a cute detail on a birthday card, or any card for that matter. A definite Note to self!
There is this book, Six Word Memoirs, edited by Smith Magazine. It is all about every person having a story to tell and about telling that story in six words. It is full of people doing just that. Since I find the idea fun, I will try to recap, if not my life story then at least each day, in six words.
What was your day like, in six words?
Tin candles, tea cup candles... diy and improvise. Fun! Note to self: Make personalized candles. Perfect for a cozy home or as presents. Or for travelling (the tin one). This is precisely my cup of... candle?
Something like this is what I want my balcony to look like [smiling sheepishly]. Well, probably not the size or the bench seat or... it's just more like... the feeling that I want to capture. And the materials and the style of the plants. Colours. Aw, you get it! Just add heaps n heaps of candles and fairy lights and stuff. And a couple of arm chairs and a table. There you have it, a vision.
I recently visited my parents and got a chance to pick the year's first lillies of the valley. Another favourite of mine! Both the flower and picking the very first ones. Here they are, including my rings - newly polished and as beautiful as I intended them to be (when I designed them :P haha).
Genie in a bottle... Lamp in a jar... same same different. This is, however, the masterstroke of a genius. Really nice! It is a lamp made out of old jars. Here, specific "mason jars" but I should think the kind of jars matters less. Presumably. Except for the aesthetical point of view, of course. Another DIY project.
To whomever may have missed it: I have been to London. :) The first of my 4 days there was also my birthday. This equals birthday shopping. Most of it is from Primark (thank God for Primark, hey?), the eyeshadows are from Barry M/Topshop and the notebook from some small bookshop in South Kensington. Wahoo! The goodies are... the small purse, the neon wallet... oh gee, I love it all! :) Over and out!
I have been to London. It was gorgeous! Spring still but a lot like summer. Enough said. When I started this blog, one of the things I wanted was for it to contain some of my outfits. Maybe because I want to see the change over time, I don't know. Anyways, here we go! This is one of my outfits from London...
Wearing: Leggings & tank top - Cubus / Shoes - Lacoste / Top & bag - Primark / Cardigan - Dotti Australia
