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!

Cheers,

My Dream Working Space

>> Play Me <<

Hey 🙂

As my internship (that I was mentionning (here), ended, I thought that it would be nice to share some tips about what makes a work environment nice and productive to me. These are my personal thoughts, don’t hesitate in sharing yours!

big picturee

* By: Pinterest
N.B: Beautiful natural light, lovely mood boards and amazing furniture.

1. The most important thing to me is LOVING WHAT YOU DO

2. The second most important thing is ENJOY WORKING WITH YOUR COLLEAGUES

If at least one of these conditions is not true for you, unless you really need the job right now, I am telling you – you deserve way better and WILL be so much happier.

Once these conditions are completed, here are some bonuses that make everything special to me:

* Natural Lighting
The office needs to have as much natural lighting as possible. It is essential to see everything very clearly, and getting good energy from the sunlight. Light is important for the room but also for your tech. Meaning, you have to be careful your computer and tablets are not too bright or too dark for you. Everything has to be really well balanced for you to stay focus all along the day.

* Minimal Style
This is personal, but as in interior design in general – I love minimalism. White is THE color for me along with light colored wood and black. I also like very clean and straight lines as far as furniture goes.

* #GoodVibesOnly
As I was saying, enjoying the atmosphere at work is essenital and way more important than all these elements. But I am a huge believer in Feng Shui too. And although I am not an expert, I can definitely feel when the vibe of the room seems a bit off (or maybe it’s just in my head!). Read some more about Feng Shui and offices here.

* Good Furniture
Well OBVIOUSLY. A comfy chair and a wide desk – tall enough for me to cross my legs (does anybody else ever felt annoyed by that lack of space sometimes?)

* Creative Inspiration
I am a very creative person and I genuinely feel bad when I am not fed with creativity. It can come from many different things that I need to be able to see from time to time during the work the day. This can be flowers, pictures, brands, photoshoots, magazines, people among many others!
This is mainly why I love keeping flowers at my desk, they enhance my creativty and contribute to a beautiful desk. But I also enjoy having a inspirational pannel not too far away but at the same time that will not look cluttery and distract me when I need to be focused on other things. That’s why I love the inspo boards on the pictures I selected because they are quite tidy and dont get in your way.

* Miscellaneous
– /!\ Sticky notes lover. Every kind. Keeping the serious ones for serious notes, and the funnier ones to bring some smiles on my colleagues’ faces 🙂
– A cute mug
– Some drawers and nice folders to keep everyhting very tidy. I am a very messy person but when it comes to my work I am quite organized and although I can get messy throughout the day, I won’t leave with my desk looking like a sample of the Revolution.
– Figure out your agenda – paper? Google Calendar? Outlook? Still figuring this out, but personally loved using outlook in the company I used to work at to schedule meetings with my team.
– And of course, a good calendar to always keep track of upcoming projects and mid-long term deadlines.

Now that I don’t work anymore I’m slowly getting ready for back to school season as I will start a new degree.

I still love to get hard-working and creative atmosphere in cool cafés and coworking spaces. If you are in the States, I would highly recommend you checking out WeWork. It is a fast growing company, recognised worldwide by its quality. They’ve got so many great co-working locations! Can’t wait to have them here in Paris!  #PLEASE?!

My long lasting flowers

Hi everyone,

As I am sure the most part of you is experiencing right now, weather is getting colder and sunlight is getting shyer. THIS CALLS for happiness, colors and life into our houses ladies and gentlemen.

I have been getting many plants and flowers that I wether buy, that I am given as gifts or even that I pick yp in my own garden.

If some of you are still struggling with poor lasting in flowers, let me give you a quick tip or two.

#1: CHANGE THEM: Change the water of your flowers regularly.

#2: TREAT THEM: Trim the stems of every single flower diagonally

#3: FEED THEM: If you are not against some chemicals here in there, try to get those little bags of “flowers food” – a type of powder that make them last longer. & hair spray the flowers!  If you are against the use of chemicals I am no expert but I know that you can add to your water a little bit of soda, vinegar, vodka, coins, sugar,

Oh those funky babies.

I cannot promess that things will go back to normal very soon because I can picture my next week in a very busy way with no real time for bloggin. But I’ll do my best!

Today’s Song!

Hi guys!

I was strolling on bloglovin (completely obsessed – my ritual every night!) and find this very cool article on http://apairandasparediy.com. I definitely recommend that you check it out because it has some amazing posts.

I love that new concept of shelves decorating your rooms and not only have a practical end. I agree with that perspective.

I kept these two pictures from her site because I found them really cute:

Now talking about serious stuff! As you may know I’m doing the decoration of my bedroom. You may knw from my previous posts that I absolutely love white bedrooms but I think it is nice and girly to have some bright touches (see this post).

SO, I thinks I would put on those shelves, an R like the D you can see on the pic. I would put, a vase with some nice flowers as well, some cute books and fancy magazine, souvenirs from my trips, and some vintage cute objects. I may add a some pictures and inspiring quotes in nice frames.

What would you put on your cute shelves? Share the inpiration!

XOXO,
