Shall we go for Brunch?

Listen while you read:)

Hi!

If you were to ask me one of my favorite moments in a day, I would most likely answer BREAKFAST. But sometimes I just like to sleep in a bit (ok, many times). This is where brunch comes as a powerful magic trick providing instant joy and comfort.

I love how brunch is just having late breakfast + adding a ton of salty treats, and it lasts for HOURS.

This is why, when Paperless Post reached out to me to reflect on what a perfect brunch woud be, I immediately felt excited about the idea! Paperless Post is a company that helps you create personalized invitations and stationary (online and paper!). I highly recommend heading out to their website to see all the creative ideas and nice content they have!

#1 –> PEOPLE
As brunch often happens on a Sunday, this is a time for you to enjoy with your close friends and family. People who really make you happy and enable you to just be yourself and laugh until your stomach hurts. It is the perfect time to relax after a tough week, so it better be with who you really want to be with.😉
(Edit: as I was re-reading this article I thought about the LOL Project – that I highly suggest you to check. It is basically a creative project consisting on catching genuine laughter. Sold!)

#2 –> FOOD
Delicious bread, butter, jam, eggs TONS of eggs, pancakes, savoury tarts, coffee, tea, fruit and juice! Those are my personal favorites!

#3 –> DECOR
Yellow is key to me. It’s happiness, it’s sunshine, it’s good energy – love it! As it matches very nicely with blue,  these would be my two colors for brunch.
These colors would then be reflected on the invitations, that I imagine very delicate and danty (see moodboard under this), font would be bold to create an interesting contrast – and of course – a joke or two would be hiding somewhere.

#4 –> PLAYLIST
Depending on if this is a very girly brunch or not I would go for either a very bubbly, cocooning playlist (e.g Pete Yorn, Scarlett Johansson – Relator), or a good old Bossa Nova one.

#5 –> OUTFIT
As this is a relaxed time all together, I don’t think there is any right or wrong way to dress. Personnaly I would just go for something very comfortable that makes me feel great. For this time of year I’d go for a breezy oversized white shirt, some jeans and fun flat shoes.

I would love to hear back from you and see what YOUR perfect brunch would look like!

Have a great day!

Spotted Dogs

DALMATIANS.

Now, don’t call me creep. I’m no Cruella Devil. But for the good old dog lover that I am, this breed is just adorable.

They are such elegant creatures with a strong body and beautiful posture – so often used for fashion photography! – and yet they are all covered in spots which just adds this extra touch of fun that HAS to put a smile on your face.

In other words I love how classy these dogs look but yet not being taken too seriously. It is exactly the spirit of the blog and it is exactly what I enjoy the most about life and people in general.

So here goes a short mood board where I tried to select pictures all over the internet that illustrated my point.

I hope you enjoy:)

CAREER FOCUS 1/ Garance Doré

Hi all – hope you’re well:)

As I was mentioning in my last post, I am going to introduce more “career” content in here that hopefully will inspire some of you (well, and me).

Garance Doré did an amazing job with her blog as a influencer and blogger.

That’s why when I stumbled upon CGD’s post (overall love the blog and highly recommend you take a look!) revealing some interesting facts about Garance Doré’s career, I had to share it here! Beautiful post.

She left college at 26 and got a job in a cinema, but when she learned what an illustrator did, she threw herself head-first into her work; quitting her job, traveling to Paris to show her sketches to editors, and starting a blog where she could produce an illustration each day.” CAREER GIRL DAILY

What do you guys do or what are your career plans? Let’s all share!

Cheers,

Hello

As you can see, I haven’t been the best at blogging over the last few months, I could find a thousand excuses for this but really, I believe that this is due to the content I was publishing until now and that does not correspond to me anymore.

So I want to redirect the content of the blog towards something than is more me, that can help me grow and hopefully help you as well in some ways.

From now on, the blog will focus towards three main themes: Fashion, Lifestyle and Career.

I am passionate about fashion, exploring new trends and expressing myself with what I wear so I will keep sharing my favorite pieces, trends and brands.

I feel like lifestyle is really a buzz word nowadays (but I love it so much!). My personal lifestyle – which I intend to share here – is a beautiful, gentle, sophisticated yet down to earth, and also very fun way of living. I will focus on the material and unmaterial aspects (from what to put in your living room to what you put in your brain).

Finally, the career theme will explore subjects related to a bunch of different careers such as entrepreneurship, marketing, design among others. Hopefully, interviews between amazing professionals and I will inspire you!

We will see how this works out. Let me know your opinion on this, every contribution and collaboration is welcome!

Cheers,
