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 Рso often used for fashion photography! Рand 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 ūüôā

Art Gallery: Hotel Room by Vanya Milicevic

‚ôę

Hi,

You know sometimes, I hang out on Pinterest and stumble upon such nice boards, that I think they could be an art gallery.

The one I want to introduce you to today, was created by Vanya Milicevic (and you can explore her whole account – it is pretty perfect)

I found this board so interesting. She called it Hotel Room and gathered, well, hotel/bedroom pictures. What I thought¬†was very interesting about the collection is that you could see the different atmospheres that one can feel while in a hotel room. I gathered my three favorite ones which are what I call, the Smart Moments (staying in your room to get ready for a meeting, read, study, work), the Cosy Moments (hanging out with your friends, enjoy a relaxing bath, laying down, wearing your most comfortable pj’s and jump onto a fresh made bed) and finally the more Sexy Moments (no explanation needed).

Hey ūüôā

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!

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 Рyou 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 РI 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 ūüôā
– 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.
РFigure out your agenda Рpaper? 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 caf√©s 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?!

This is our time.

Hello gorgeous reader,

This is March and I am back. As you may have read on Instagram or even on my previous posts, the month of February was very busy and quite stressful for me, hence the lack of posting.

I am truly sorry and I really want to make this month and the upcoming ones, different!

,,

For today’s post, I wanted to let you know about one of my last personnal projects.

You know how sometimes you and your best friends talk and are like “Yea, yea someday we will be like this top model, dressing like this and that.” “I know, I love this hair, one day mine will look just like that.”

Well. STOP.

NOW IS THE TIME.

YOLO people (sorry but YOLO never gets old to me)

These are the glorious years. No matter how old you are, I really think you should picture your better self and do everything you can to get close to it.

And as everybody knows, it is useless to just picture a goal and say that you want to achieve it. You should create your own baby steps in order to do so. So that’s what I decided to do and picture things that I want to do, and ways I want to change until I am 23 and until I am 25.

As some of these projects are quite personnal, I won’t share them all here which I’m sure you understand. However, yesterday my good friend sent me this link. We’ve gotta love Thought Catalog. ‚̧

From that list, this is what applies to me the most:

6. A good idea of what she needs in a romantic relationship, not just what she wants, or what she thinks she needs, and the willingness to explore different people and other ideas to find what exactly that is.

7. A closet of what she considers to be her ‚Äústaples,‚ÄĚ and among these things, something to wear to an interview, funeral, wedding, impromptu Friday night drink at a casual bar and dream date if ever someone were to call out of the blue.

10.¬†A favorite coffee order, go-to restaurant for when friends visit from out of town, hairstyle that takes less than five minutes in the morning, ‚Äúthank you‚ÄĚ cards in her desk drawer,¬†the print copy of her favorite book, and bedding that she is proud to show off.

11. A hobby that has nothing to do with drinking, shopping or somebody else.

12. The recipes for a number of easy meals memorized.

13. The desire and discipline to actually cook for herself. (Just herself.)

What about you? Which would be your one-year goals and 3-year goals?

Cheers,

Preppy Funny
