Home Tweak: Navy is the New Black

Tuesday, February 28, 2017






As much as I love all-white minimal homes filled with natural light, I’m also a big fan of all things navy! According to ELLE, this rather moody and mysterious shade of blue is going to be huge this year! While adding a few navy accents might give a fresh vibe to a dull flat, if you're after the wow factor, the bold choice is those all blue walls.

Aren’t they grand?

P.S: Also, navy coats and this sassy nail colour.
P.P.S: Fancy growing an olive tree in your home?

Eat Together


For Canada's 150th birthday, their national supermarket chain released this rather amazing advert in hopes to encourage people to put down their phones, turn off their tellies, and sit down to share a meal. As simple as it sounds, gathering family or friends for a meal nowadays is increasingly more difficult, but when you actually manage to pull it off, amazing things happen...

P.S: Food swap.
P.P.S: What our moms taught us about cooking.

Fresh Flowers For Happy Life

Monday, February 27, 2017

Here is another great reason why not to pass on fresh flowers. According to Feng Shui, flowers are amongst the things that bring the greatest chi energy by adding happiness, abundance and health to your life. The easiest way to not feel guilty about buying flowers regularly is by replacing a few take-out coffees with homemade brew. This way you'll have more change to spare for some spring blooms. Win-win:)

Btw: do you buy flowers regularly? Or is it more of a special occasion thing?

P.S: Flotsam.
P.P.S: Glowing flowers.

The Spring Shirt-Skirt





The birds are singing, the sun is shining, the trees are not far from blooming and if I try really hard, I can actually feel the scent of spring on its way.

So, here is a brilliant idea for a spring skirt that Nike Jane recently came up with. Yup, she cleverly used her husband's shirt as a skirt and it not only looks good, but also feels super comfortable. So, go on and dive into your husband's part of the closet, fish out a crisp shirt and try it yourself. I know I will:)

P.S: Also, this brilliant jean jacket tweak.
P.P.S: Pin-tastic...

Home Tweak: Homemade Face Planter





Since cheery face planters are all the rage right now, I've been looking to add a few new quirky designs to my home, but then I spotted this genius little project and it changed my mind. So now, I'll try to make a couple on my own instead, by recycling old pots and giving them a brand new personality:)

If you fancy giving it a go too, here are the instructions. Let's get crafty! Are you game?

P.S: Also, remember those pretty light bulb vases?
P.P.S: Plus, a Scandi way to beat the winter blues...
