Almost there

Hi, peeps, what have you been up to lately? 😉 This week I rented my apartment to a Marketing School and they’ve been filming something so loud that my neighbours were asking if I had a Swingers party in there. Haha! Can you even imagine?

So we’re staying at F’s and we have a balcony! Yesterday we even got half an hour of sunshine on our faces while sipping some beer. Sam is mostly outside, he even stayed on the flower bed while it was snowing, I don’t know why I’m even surprised, he’s a regular polar dog! 😉18119140_10154472846556711_8736417919968492456_n Continue reading

It’s a Hard Knock Life

Hey, how have you been? Back from holidays? Taken a plunge into reality yet? 😉 My week started with a pang on Tuesday, but I did get a couple of hours here and there to give my apartment the love it needs in order to be sold on the first home inspection. So now that I’m done with the bedroom and living-room, almost done with the kitchen floor, I only need to wash the whole place spotless (which my cleaning lady will do) and style it, so it’s ready for the photographer and soon for the hoards. haha! I know I may lack a little in modesty, but hey, I can’t help it, I simply believe I have a better sense of style than “the girl next door”! 😉

Getting there

Hi, how are you all doing? I’m pretty well. Except for the fact that I’m tired and short-tempered most of the time (winter and depression combined), it feels I haven’t been this well in years. Had I no been approaching the moment when I have to sell the apartment and all the effort this implies, I’d be on top of the world. 😉 A huge electrician bill, a new dishwasher and a cooking top, painting the bedroom and the living-room are only a couple of examples on things that have to be in place before the apartment can be put on the market. In addition to that, I’m busting my ass off working to pay the remaining debt to the fiscal authorities when all I can do is dream about how our new apartment will look like and how I can’t wait to decorate it. Dark, dreamy colours and quality furniture will hopefully characterise this new part of my life, since there will be less need to fill empty rooms and consequently we can take the time to find the right stuff.skjermbilde-2017-02-21-08-42-40 Continue reading

Dreaming of New Stuff

I have a new favourite webstore- VAAR! Haven’t bought anything there yet, but both exclusive furniture, amazing vintage jewellery, ceramic bowls and retro lamps are on my list! 😉 The shop came to life as an extension of the photo studio, the owners write, and you can definitely see they have a trained eye.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always loved the Egg by Arne Jacobsen. Both the organic form and the cognac color appeal to me and owning something this timeless is a dream for all us interior aficionados.  383741-3e1b9c49e8b940c7bc2a1134668af2b3 Continue reading

Advent

 

As I was laying in my bf’s bath tub a couple of days ago, it struck me that in a couple of months’ time (not even that!) Christmas will be here and with it the whole shebang and I’m just not ready for it. I’m still broke and I still haven’t got any any closer to selling my apartment and it kills me to be in such a mess and, most of all, not knowing when it’ll end.

But hey, I survived this year, so I’m probably going to make it to next year, too. 😉 Meanwhile, I reminisce how everything used to be so good at Christmas time. I remember my first Christmas as a host and how happy I was to be putting together the menu- a crisscross of Eastern and North European cuisine, then all the years after when I’d bake cookies for work and make Christmas chutney and Lemon curd as go-to-gifts and felt like Christmas was the best time of the year.molleux-au-chocolat
