This month we’ll be… September 2016

Summer is slowly coming to an end, but instead of being sorry about it, we are full of energy for the fall. We share with you our plans for September 2016, that include some digital diets, great people, moody weather and so on. What will you be up to this month?

I’m listening to…

Iv – Podcasts as they are a great way to learn something new and to make your commute more fun and productive.
D – Good vibes music, you know, the kind of music that makes you dance immediately.

I’m reading…

Iv – A book in Swedish that my sister recommended. It is a great way to learn new language, not to mention the satisfaction that you get when you realise “Oh God, I actually understand this”. 🙂
D – Back to my friend Freud, I have this relationship with one of his books – I read a bit and take looong breaks when stuff get way too real and I have to think about what I’ve just read.


I can’t resist…

Iv – Instagram! I know you’re used to reading about food here, but this month it looks like I will need to go on a digital diet. There are so many inspiring images on Instagram that I just can’t resist it! Share your tips on insta profiles that you love.
D – Talking about diets, well I am getting into baking right now (CAKE CAKE CAKE CAKE). I am on the “just add milk and shove it in the oven” recipes at the moment, hoping to grow into “I’ll make it from scratch”. We’ll see. I just hope I’ll stop when I’ll feel close to Miranda’s “your good friend has just taken a piece of cake from the garbage and eaten it” phase.

I’ll be wearing…

Iv – It’s hard to tell as the weather keeps changing, but as much of my summer clothes as possible. I also look forward to layers when the colder days arrive, which in Sweden will probably be pretty soon.
D – Boots! I cannot wait to get my feet back in the comfort of boots. Me and boots – match made in heaven, but I already told you about that here.

I’m inspired by…

Iv – Other creative people. I am finding so much inspiration online, on Instagram and Pinterest and some blogs, and I really love it. I feel like I’m hungry for fashion, style and interior so please share your favourite spots for some inspo.
D – I too am a Pinterest junkie right now and I’ll stop when I feel like it!

I’m grateful for…

Iv – As always, for having such amazing people around me. From my sister, mom and dad, to Doina and my close friends, I am really blessed to have great people in my life.
D – For being how and who I am. Of course I have many flaws (for sure I’m not Beyonce), but hey, almost no one is perfect (except Beyonce), so we have to accept who we are and work with what we have. And most of all, love yourself, because at the end of the day it’s always going to be you and yourself.

I look forward to…

Iv – New opportunities and some hot chocolate.
D – Growing and learning.
