Home styling tips // One Sofa - three ways to style it

I'm not going to lie, I've been trying to finish this post for the last 3 (!) weeks. On long train rides, at airport lounges, at home with a glass of wine.. it just seemed impossible. Well today everything was going wrong and I realised that the only thing that keeps me sane is this little online space which is all mine, every little piece of it belongs to me and who I am.. so here I am, sharing a new blog post about sofas cushions and how you can play with them. The more I work in Interiors the more I learn to appreciate cushions and lamps (but hopefully I can share more on lamps on another post). If you feel like updating your house start with the cushions; it is the easiest and probably the only way that you're not going to break the bank. Today I'm showing you how the same sofa, with the same lamps and side tables can transform completely just by changing the cushions. So if you're like me you and you can't live in a space that looks the same all year long, cushions are you secret weapon!
Have a lovely day!

PS: I made my very first gif, how fun is this? (Or is it extremely annoying? Are those messy cushions on the sofa making you want to jump in your screen and redecorate them too? I'd love to know your thoughts!)

Steal the look // Scandinavian reading nook

The older I grow, the more I enjoy cozy weekends at home, watching
movies and snuggling on the sofa. This weekend was one of those, 
the perfect balance between lying on the sofa and seeing friends for coffee.
How was your weekend?
Here's a mood board on how to copy this Scandinavian inspired cozy 
reading nook.

Latest obsession // Succulents at home

 So I haven't been around a lot.. as per usual. Life is a roller coster and unfortunately blogging wasn't on top of the list. But is always and when I say alway I mean at least 10 times day in my mind. "Oh I'm so gonna blog about this' well, it never happened. So today that I'm home alone, I've decided that I need to share with who-ever-is-still-out-there my latest obsession: Succulents. I love them, wether they are in planters, on the wall, on a plater os as centerpieces I just completely adore them. What do you think? Is it just another Pinterest trend? And now that we've mentioned Pinterest, all of these lovely images are via my Pinterest board 'And decorate with plants and flowers', join me on Pinterestland and lets share beautiful images (

Things that made me smile this week // December week 3

3 days until Christmas! I didn't realize it until I heard it from a guy on the radio! I'm going home in less than 2 days and I'll share a big secret with you tonight: I hate packing. And I have to catch 2 flights in one day. This is a lot of packing. I wish I could magically have my suitcases ready to go and all the gifts wrapped and placed in as well! This week was fun, I tried to avoid anything that included packing, focused on work and did a lot of Christmas baking, shopping and I received my first Christmas gift (which I totally ALREADY unwrapped!) It's the Iconia A1 tablet from Acer, which is probably going to be my new best friend for 2014! I spent the weekend exploring all the apps and taking the photos that you'll see attached in this post. A girl(+blogger!) can never have too many gadgets!

1// Would you resist unwrapping this beautiful gift? I couldn't help myself! Hello new Iconia tablet, welcome to the world of Unidentified Lifestyle! (Iconia A1 tablet review here)  Thank you Acer! I'm incredibly amazed by your gift wrapping skills!

4// I mean, I had to take another photo, look at this beauty! Christmas and Harrods go together like milk and biscuits.
5// A fun lunchbox I got for our Secret Santa gift exchange at work. You can find it on Asos or River Island(on sale!).
6//7//8// Making a traditional Christmas treat: Melomakarona or simply Honey syrup biscuits. You can find the recipe in English on 

Is there anyone else out there that hates packing as much as I do? Are you all going home for Christmas? Happy Monday y'all! 3 days till Christmas!
