The Creative Process...Currently living the dream

The creative process

As mentionned here, procrastination was my middle name today and it is not fun when it happens. I’m currently stuck between no 3 and no 4, getting ready to jump to no 6. Normally, when one of these days happens,

MY WHITE BEDROOM UPDATE

Here are a few quick and easy tips to update your bedroom like mine. As I mentioned here, I’m forcing myself to pick up my EOS camera again rather than using my iPhone and I have to say, it challenges me a great deal so today you will only get two pictures  :-)

Pre-loved things & vintage treasures for sale

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know that my secret to keep our home clutter-free is to regularly raid our cupboards. I go through everything, papers, bathroom cabinet, socks, shoes, everything. I think deep down I have OCD tendencies :-) I’m OK with mess for a little while but then after a few days, I can feel it starts boiling inside me little by little until I explode and I want to set everything on fire! Living with a kiwi and freewi that love leaving their clothes on the floor is not always making my life easier but I’m working on it.

TODAY I LOVE…

This wonderful shot snapped by Sofia. It just feels like a happy room… I don’t know if it was the natural light flooding the room or the quintessential collection of art displayed on the walls or maybe this inviting table setting but I was in love as soon as I saw it and I felt it lifted up my heart.

{WISE WORDS} UP TO YOU

Yes we are. Whatever decision we make on a daily basis… that workout that we will do religiously or skip, the people who let in our lives, those will bring joy & happiness and the others…The way we look at life (are you a half-full glass or half-empty glass person?) The way we think of ourselves…You are entirely up to you

Denim power

I tried to take pictures of Mila’s outfit this morning before going to school… I got 10 seconds of stillness and then, she went off running with Lucas, jumping on the trampoline. True to be told, she is on the trampoline ALL THE TIME and I think if you have the space, it’s the best thing to keep the kids active rather than having them glued to their iPad! In addition, her dad built her a mini-Accrobranche so she is constantly doing a circuit from the trampoline to the tree house, hanging on the trapeze, pulling herself from the strength of her arms to the top of the rope and jumping back on the trampoline (last night she was training to be a Spy!)
