Good evening friends, Right now I'm sitting at my kitchen table having a glass of white wine and eating gruyere cheese :) Well deserved treat after having planted my new plants and cleaning our balcony. My partner is out with his friends and I'm enjoying an evening on my own, sometimes it's really nice to be home alone. I also re-organised our corners a little by adding two new chairs, making it a third place to sit. In this corner the sun stays the longest and the view over the alps is excellent. Sleep well, and sweet dreams.
Hi there, I’m almost about to end my Friday but before that I wanted to share some Friday inspiration. Yesterday at the lovely blogger breakfast at the Westwing event we learned how to make flower letters ( I like to call them flower bombs <3 ). I cant think of a better decoration for a special occasion or a gift to friends. We were all given the first letter of our names, ( S for Sofia ), that we were supposed to decorate with the beautifully prepared flowers. And the best part, we could take them home!
Luckiest girl in the world; this morning I had breakfast in a penthouse with the amazing ladies from Westwing including Delia Fischer herself (the founder of Westwing) and the best bloggers in Zurich. Westwing is an online interior shop with multiple brands started by Delia Fischer. If I could add a sound to the text; then it would be Iiiiiihhhhh! It was splendid. I was seated next to Delia and we shared an interesting conversation about entrepreneurship and Westwing's new Basics collection. Delia is a true role model for me both for being a successful business woman with her feet on the ground but also for her beauty and style.
For the day I decided to be comfortably dressed in a casual white skirt combined with my olive-green silk blouse. On my feet I had my favourite cream coloured Louboutin’s, they simply match with everything.
Very soon I will have Westwing Basics in my kitchen! Guess what the goodie-bags consisted of? The dreamy option to select two items from the brand new Basics collection to be shipped directly home to my house. I picked a white tray and a set of six champagne glasses. What could be better than that, serving cold champagne on a white tray, just in time for summer!
In addition to delicious food, fantastic individuals and interior, we had a DIY flower session. But in order to not put a “flower bomb” on the blog today, I save this post for tomorrow. Lot’s of love to you all and thank you a million times beautiful Westwing ladies.
Guess what arrived in my letter box the other day? An invitation to have breakfast with founder of Westwing, Dela Fischer next week. Westwing is organising a blogger breakfast in Zurich to present Delia and her company. Oh I’m really thrilled to join the breakfast and meet Delia! She is one of my few role models being first of all a young and successful woman but also being an entrepreneur within my two favourite industris; furniture/home decoration and digital/tech. Many might not know this but a lot of the backing capital to Westwing comes from the Swedish investment company Kinnevik AB.
Here are my favourite Westwing pieces right now <3
So what weekend plans do we have? Naaaaada, we are going to stay home and cuddle up in front of some good movies and avoid the cold weather. And the only task I have is to find a lamp for our dining room, an endless story. Hugs and have a lovely weekend!
