The last hello of the work week! I have that sparkling Friday feeling inside me and I feel happy with my workweek. I managed to do everything on my todo list and even a little bit more. Sometimes I find it difficult to be creative when you’re taken over by the “todo list”, that sometimes feels endless. The routine I have right now splits the day in 3 “work-shift”. My first work-shift is 1 hour in the morning only for blogging and emails, in that order. My second work-shift goes until lunch where I do creative work and mainly thinking and visualising (if I get the time)… Here I need a lot of energy and work with a fresh mind. My last and third work-shift is after lunch, and also the longest one. Here I dedicate my time (5-6 hours) to my “to-do list” as these are tasks that mostly needs to be “done and executed” and requires less of my creative side of the brain; the admin and coordination of tasks. I think it is important to recognise and know your levels of energy through out the day and match that with the tasks you need to get done.
Finally Friday! The weather app in my iphone says 22 degrees today but it was certainly not the case when i walked out of my house this morning. I still have my thin leather gloves on and my favourite cashmere coat. I love to mix grey, beige and taupe and having my leather pants on and a white top. I bought a pair of open boots in Stockholm on my latest trip and I brought them to the office today to “walk them in”. I will show you a snap on my instastories later on. The woman at Footlight told me “I’m not sure why we sell these shoes here, as no one will ever be able to wear them in Sweden”, I said to her “well then, you just found your perfect customer, a Swede living abroad” and then I bought them. :)
I love mixing grey, beige and taupe
I’d like my home-office to be personal and as vintage as possible,
I would prefer to find an old desk and repaint it.
Art is a topic I like, I'm by far not an expert but I have an interest to aquire knowledge. I even took it so far that I’m a member of the club Young Art Collectors Zurich. It’s not as fancy as it sounds, but a fantastic group of people with the same interest. Art is one of my hobbies and I like to both purchase beautiful objects and paint myself. My interest might come from my grandmother who wanted to be an artist and live in Paris in the 1920s, a dream that never unfortunately came true. But she painted, oh she painted well and she taught me everything about painting the perfect eyes, the little sparkel of light in the objects and how to sketch the nose of cats. I love everything about painting and arts and I am lucky to have a family with the same interests.
I just really wanted to tips about this book as I find it the perfect “coffee table book” as well as serving a purpose more than just looking good. Enjoy this beautiful day! I'm going to make a coffee now and book a flight to Sweden for my moms birthday in June. Hugs!
Hi darlings, Do you remember that I've bought pots and plants last week? So this is the result of me planting these lovely daffodils. They are in the sun almost all day long so I hope they'll bloom soon. I'm making my way to the kitchen now to prepare a stuffed aubergine dish, copy my recipe here ... I wish you a lovely evening. Hugs /Sofia
I water them every day :)
I love the exterior of our house...
