New office space & decor inspiration

I’m finally sitting in my new office space. And you might be wondering if we’ve gotten a third room.. well, not exactly. Over new years we decided to have our son back in our room after he stayed in his own room for 3 months. Baby call and all installed of course. I actually loved having our bedroom more spacious and back to it’s usually self but since my husband wanted to venture into the unknown space of streaming, we compromised on a solution. Now we both have our space in our sons bedroom. For a while at least. Besides, our son is just a bit over 1 year and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with having him close to us for a little while longer. Soon he’ll be begging to stay in his room and I’m sure there will come an age where he won’t even climb into our bed any more.

So I’ve been diving into the interior front lately, searching for inspiration. And when I decide to do anything, the whole house has to get a remodel or at least get a clean out. There are few things as satisfying as cleaning and de-cluttering. What I’m searching for now is a dresser, either white or in wood where I can do a little DIY project. Over the dresser where my son’s clothes are, I would like a grid wall where I can hang different pictures. If I don’t find that, I think I’ll just hang the pictures directly on the wall. Perfect for inspiration and also great for filming YouTube videos.

Hopefully all this will happen in the next coming weeks. And when I’m done I’ll shoot a office tour, insha’Allah.

DIY closet door knobs

I finally got these crystal knobs for our bedroom closets. When we moved in here there were only these boring white ones from IKEA and I’ve thought about making it a bit more classy for a while now. I browsed through the web and found these from an interior store. You can find all kinds of unnecessary stuff there but also some really cute bits and bobs.

I love how the light catches the sparkles – it makes the whole room get a bit more class. You can find them here: Diamond knobs

Simple changes like these make my day. You don’t always have to invest in a whole new closet to get a new look.

Autumn flowers light up my day

The weekend is upon us and even though I’ve had Friday feeling since Tuesday, I’m definitely going to enjoy this weekend. Tomorrow I’ll have a couple of hours to myself which hopefully I’ll be able to enjoy to the fullest. Hair appointment, coffee, running errands – well, running is the last thing I want to do on my day ‘off’.

Fresh flowers for the weekend is starting to become a priority even though I’ve been so lucky to get the last couple of flowers from my wonderful and loving mum. It does something with your mood when you wake up and see beautiful fresh colors shine throughout your living room.



My sons cousin also has his first birthday tomorrow so I have to get something for him. Even though I have no idea what that’s going to be.. I guess I have to brainstorm a little. And tomorrow evening we’ll be visiting him and his family.

Have a great weekend, hope it treats you well!

When your living room is looking like a playground

The last couple of days have been stressful. With a little crawler here at home you have to get extra alert. But now that I’ve finally bought some baby proofing it’s safer to crawl around. I never knew how fast you could get to places when you’re on your stomach. But it’s of course fun to explore everything new around you. My living room is definitely looking like a playground and my inner neat freak is freaking out a little, but I know everything will be nice and cleaned up again in the evening.

Yesterday was just super hectic. The day started off having to drive into the city early in the morning to try and fix a passport. Luckily I’m getting mine renewed but we have to find a different solution for the little one. At least I have today off so I might go shopping and hopefully I’ll be able to film another video for you.


Here are some snapshots for this week. Don’t forget to check by my YouTube channel where I try to upload as much as possible. I’ve also ordered some new equipment from Amazon so hopefully that will arrive soon. Fingers crossed.

Where I left off..

I’ve come to the conclusion that my post on the 10th of October was a bit premature. I most often get carried away and think bigger than big of what I’m capable of doing. But in the end I come around and try to pull up that red string and find out where I left you all.

Lately I’ve just been writing about my “planned” topics, like Music Monday, Workout Wednesday, and Fashion Friday. But I do what to get into my old routs writing about much more than those three things. Even if that’s what occupy me most of the free time I have left I have so much more I want to share. At least I think I do.

So let me start with my latest project; redecoration my room. I’ll give you a sneak pick now but look out for a room tour soon.
