"I'm gonna go to bed early"
-lies I tell myself
If you've been paying attention you probably have a good idea of what I'm building! I demolish Legos in a move because it just makes more sense.
Plus then I get to put it together all over again, and putting all the pieces into a giant bowl makes me feel like a kid again: rooting and rummaging through my massive bins to find one tiny specific piece. It's therapeutic.
“Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.” My favourite Rumi 💗 The last few months have been pretty busy and stressful in this little business of mine, and I‘ve been forgetting to enjoy it. Losing touch with why I began this. Instead, confronting the realities of having turned my passion into a job, and of running an online business. I know some of you know what I mean. But the last few days I have felt a lightness returning. I am remembering to have fun, to take time out, to find moments of joy and beauty. It’s a shift that has been a long time coming, and I am so grateful for the space to breathe again.
Thanks to everyone for all the love. Ready for another lap around the sun!
And some feedback on this ice cream craze cause it's everywhere lately... @halotopcreamery this needs a bit more party (aka sprinkles) to live up to the name. Tasty? Yes. But if you are gonna call it "birthday cake" it needs to live up to the 🎉. I mean, it's still good but could easily be called "cake".
(Obviously, I take after my dad.😂)
Last week’s live was seriously one of the most terrifying things I’ve done in a long time. Hand me two babies - no problem. But public speaking? It scares me to my very core and gives me nightmares thinking about it. And yes, I really did have nightmares about it the night before. No joke. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m so humbled that so many of you tuned in to see what I had to say. And to receive all your messages afterwards about how useful and inspiring it was - it just makes me all warm and fuzzy inside and honestly a little teary. Some of you have told me you went prop shopping on the weekend with my tips in mind and some even said that I inspired you to do some playing around with your products - and I can’t emphasise how happy that makes me. It makes those 30 mins of pure fear (it felt like an hour by the way) all the more worth it and you even have me contemplating doing more 😱. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So thank you guys. Thanks to all those who tuned in. Thanks to all those who messaged me. Thanks to all of you who make me want to create more and share more of my work with you. Thanks for all your support! If you have any burning questions about styling, comment below or DM me. I’d love to create something that can help. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On another note, isn’t this suite by @mishku.studio so beautiful? And that iron plate?! This is a new favourite of mine and don’t tell but, you might be able to get your hands on them soon too. Stay tuned. I may have some news for you tomorrow. 😉⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

" Di notti cariche di profumi e desideri.
Di pensieri che non ti fanno dormire.
Di distanze impossibili da colmare.
Di opposti, che secondo le leggi della fisica si attraggono... ma secondo le leggi umane spesso si perdono. "
Orange flowers generally mean energy, enthusiasm, desire and passion! So next time you're thinking of sprucing up the boudoir for a sexy evening, put on your silk sheets, and buy a bouquet with some orange flowers to place on the night side table. 😉
❝Sono così... testarda, molte volte ottusa e impulsiva. Rifletto sulle cose ma poi devo attuarle, i progetti che creo mentalmente prima o poi devono avere una forma.
Sono una costruttrice di idee, un animo sensibile e mi caccio spesso nei guai per la mia bontà! Non amo dipendere da nessuno e sono uno spirito remissivo rinchiuso in se stesso. I miei non approvano nessun mio progetto perché avrebbe preferito vedermi fare il classico lavoro dietro una scrivania. Nessuno mi appoggia se non io stessa. Credo in mille progetti ci metto anima e corpo ma le persone molte volte mi deludono. Sono romantica e forse vivo in un’epoca che non esiste. Ho un varco interiore, uno squarcio che con il tempo si è formato, incurabile. Avevo tanti sogni da ragazza ma il tempo è passato velocemente e loro sono scomparsi, non li vedo più.❞ #chocolaterosestyle#travelgirl#naturephotography#dreams

Get after the GOOD stuff.
Are you living a life filled with love, compassion and support? Are you treating others the way you would like to be treated? How can we work together to support and transform life?
Your energy, words and actions matter.💕
What is your favorite simple and uncomplicated tradition?
Every Sunday in strawberry season we get a Danish with strawberries and vanilla pudding for lunch. The combo is just awesome and I love the indulgence of getting this little treat!
Happy Sunday afternoon!
Dreaming of this sunshine. 🌞
Why can’t we have weather like this all the time? For it to be completely normal to wear dresses and sunglasses on a daily basis? I wouldn’t mind sitting out with a gin and lemonade every weekend.
On a side note, I haven’t taken this bracelet off since it arrived. Keep your eyes peeled for my blog post this week and a lil give away of one of these beautiful @leo.mazzotti bracelets!
• what books are in your tbr pile for the summer/winter?
we spent our day helping out at the shelter, swimming, melting away in the sun (haven’t had a may this hot in norway since 1947!!), visiting rebecca’s dad for a bit, and now we’re making vegan lasagna and i’m very excited to eat it! update: the lasagna was super good!
[ paris magique! ]
La magia di Parigi è racchiusa nelle lucine che si accendono sulla Tour Eiffel ogni 15 minuti. Impossibile non emozionarsi! Bisogna chiudere gli occhi ed esprimere un desiderio..lei farà il resto!
I’m about two months out from heading to Uganda, Africa and I’m sooo excited to love on those kiddos and share Jesus with them. I’ve currently only raised half of the amount needed. If you feel led to give, even just $5.00, please click the link in my bio. I’d so appreciate it!!
