same, same but different

Hello dear friends,

There is nothing like an empty bank account to make you absolutely lose your mind. I’ve had to be extra carful with my money lately and haven’t been able to do much shopping. I honestly think lack of money is bad for the mental health. When I say lack of money I mean in a very first world problem kind of way. Where being poor means you still got food on the table and a roof over your head but your diet consists of cup noodles and you’re sitting in your bed filling online shopping carts with all the clothes you wish you could buy, just to close the tabs an hour later and get back to reality.

My point is, when you’re trying to get through the cold dark months of winter you need every ounce of happiness you can get and yes, that sometimes comes in a shopping bag. Retail-therapy is REAL folks. Shopping makes you happy, end of story.

Something I’ve really been craving lately is flower embroidered jeans. Paired with a basic white T-shirt and leather belt- YUM. The #1 wanties are from Gucci and cost way more than I’d be willing to spend on a pair of jeans. But I was able to find some similar models from other brands.

If you’re crafty you could even buy embroidered flower patches and sew on an old pair of jeans. If that thought makes you go “ain’t nobody got time for that”, you can just have a look at these budget versions I’ve found of the gorgeous Gucci-jeans we all crave.

Interior dreams

Hello dear friends!

Spring is getting closer and it’s making me long for some change. My home has always been very important to me. For some, it might sound shallow but it’s actually the opposite. My home is my sanctuary, my safe space where I can relax and recharge my batteries. I love interior and making my home look pretty and homey. It’s like therapy for me. When I don’t feel satisfied with my home-situation I feel out of balance and as the libra that I am, I don’t deal well with my everyday life when I’m out of balance.

These past months I’ve been living with Bogdan in a very small room. We literally do the dishes in the bathroom sink because we have no kitchen. It’s been cozy and YOLO and all but there is only that much of it a person can take. Especially for the anxious, slightly spoiled princess that I am.

Between searching for apartments and contacting landlords I’ve drifted away onto interior websites and of course my dear old friend Pinterest. Even though I don’t know how our new home will look like I still find it ridiculously satisfying to plan the interior into the tiniest detail.
