Inspirational colorful garden

I’m sitting here on one of my four kitchen chairs looking out into the horizon. Even though my view is mostly green trees, you can see deep into the woods. And in the morning it’s especially beautiful with the sun rising from the vest.
I’m enjoying a bowl of fresh bought strawberries and a silence that only comes at night. The little one is in bed and I can finally breath out and relax a little bit more. Today was spent eventfully buying new flowers for our beautiful home built terrace. I’m no gardner since my last flowers died, all expect four. So this is my promise to take excellent care of the new once, I have to! I’m not born with green fingers but there’s always time to learn. And as soon as the terrace is done with all the decor I want it to have I’ll be the first one to show it to you. I cannot wait. Only bits and bobs left now.
On another note my creativity is sparkling like firework. I get the best ideas in the most random places, like the toilet, and I cannot wait to film ever more for you. If you don’t know already I have a YouTube channel where I try to upload once a week. I’ll also be doing more outfit posts as soon as I get the house to myself again which should be next week. I’m so excited!

I took these pictures a few days ago when I was going for a walk. And when I came across an empty space with no one around I had to take out my camera and put it on self timer before I started posing around by my self. Things you’ll do for a good outfit post. But I love doing it so I don’t mind at all. Besides, I’m so much more comfortable alone then when someone else takes my photos.

Today was spend with family before we came home a couple of hours ago. Now it’s time for some relaxing time and then I’ll be going to bed.

All smiles every day

There is really no reason not to smile when the weekend is just around the corner. I’m spending today with family and I’m going to try to take a break from social media this weekend, except maybe posting once.. or twice.

A little outfit shoot we had the other day. Still trying to be comfortable in front of the camera again. And I’m trying out different editing styles, but I can’t really decide on what I actually like. What do you think?

Sunday walk

I’m usually very comfortable in front of the camera and never shy away, but this time it just turned out awkward. I guess I need some more practice again.


We did manage to get out this Sunday. And I just had to take the opportunity to shoot some outfits shots. With that being said, I totally shied away today. I guess I’m not as comfortable as I used to be, or I need a different photographer. Either way, I know I can do better. Lets hope that this was a one time thing!

Other than that we had a chill day inside. I’m crossing my fingers hoping to get more outfit pictures here soon!

5 tips for shopping

Lately I’ve really been looking for key pieces for my wardrobe. Clothes I can wear for a long period of time, like a timeless white shirt or black blazer. I used to buy things on a whim. Sometimes only because they where cheap. And a lot of clothes were only worn once and then found themselves on their way to the thrift store. So I want to share five tips that help me when I shop. If you can check of every point on this list then there is no doubt that you should buy it.


Like everything! 
You have to actually like everything on that new piece you want to buy. If something throws you off or makes you question this new clothing then leave it, in the end it won’t be worth your money.

Price range 
Find a price range you are comfortable with. Go shopping with a budget and it will narrow down your options.

Limited items
Before you go on your shopping trip set yourself a limited amount of items your allowed to buy. That way you won’t go all crazy and your wallet will thank you later.

Online shopping
Go online window shopping first. Check out your favorite stores website and brows through their new merchandise. This will make your actual shopping go smoother and quicker. You know what you need, or want, and once you’re in the store you can easily ask a sales assistant to help you.

If you can’t stop thinking about it – buy it!
This is my best tip because if you really love something and still think about it after a week, it’s meant to be. So don’t hesitate to buy it once you can’t stop thinking about it.

Grey on grey

Today time ran away from me and before I knew it I had to make my way to work. Planning on posting before I left was a bit ambitious, since time never is on my side. Seems like we don’t have enough of it. But before I left I managed to shoot a couple of outfit pictures. Tried a turban style today which I have been in love with lately. Let me know if you’d like a tutorial on that style.

Today I had a very chill and casual day out doing some errands and spending quality time with my mum. I wanted my outfit to have the same casual feel so I paired a nice flannel shirt with and oversized sweater and some boyfriend jeans.
