DIY FLOWER BOMB
Westwing basics Zurich

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!

DIY WESTWING

If you want to know exactly how we did? Then take a look at this DIY video showing you the details on how to make these beautiful creations. Don’t forget to add water to the letters before you start! (something I forgot!).

Scandinavian as I am felt the need to make something simple and elegant, and used only white flowers and eucalyptus. Now it’s time to close down and take weekend, hugs!

STYLE GOALS

Happy Friday friends! Still not sprig nor summer weather here but it is warmer and this is the absolute last time I wear my knee boots this season but I must admit these boots serves it’s purpose by warming my legs in the morning. I’m planning on a after-work drink later today so a smaller handbag will fit well. There are some pieces in my closet I never give up on like this Chanel bag, it fits almost every outfit, as well as the heels I wore yesterday. If I could define a “style goal” it would be to collect timeless fashion items like these.

Apart from that my day started perfectly until I received a sad text from my friend after I needed to cancel our Saturday plans. I’ve been very unclear to both her and my partner where I’ve mentioned to my friend long time ago that we shall do something tomorrow night as well as telling my partner that this weekend is free for plans. To be honest, I wasn’t in the mood for making any plans at all and that’s why I was so brief in my statements. Well, maybe not so well planned after all as we now have double plans and need to cancel one. Sometimes these things happens and one will need to take the bullet, I offered to invite for both day activities on Saturday as well as brunch on Sunday but nothing seemed to be well received. Bah, I hate to disappoint my surroundings.

I’m going to turn on the playlist “mood booster” in Spotify to get this day back on track! Ps. Don't forget to check out my blog later this afternoon when I will post the second story from our DIY flower session at the Westwing event yesterday.

A PERFECT DAY
westwing basics

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.

BETTER BLOGGING
Good morning, I’ve been sitting here in my armchair drinking tea since sunrise, and yes, I woke up way too early. I wanted to share a few tips on blogging as I recently received useful feedback from my mother, who’s a frequent reader of my blog. She told me I wrote too long texts and that one doesn't have time to read it. Good point! So I adjusted to the below.

Pictures;
Pictures tells more than words and people today have a very short attention-span. Hence, your images needs to tell the story. I use maximum four image blocks to build up my posts; I usually want to build my blog posts with one horizontal image followed by two vertical images next to each other and ending with one full length / width vertical image. In the case you want to add an extra image; use another horizontal image to end your blogpost. Your pictures helps building the structure of your blogpost.

Text:
I mostly blog from my laptop where long texts looks normal, however knowing most readers (including myself) read blogs from their mobile phones, the texts becomes incredibly long. My tips for good texts are the following; break down your text in three parts; start with an intro covering the topic of your blogpost. Put this text on top of your first image; secondly, write the second part as more detailed. This text goes in the middle of your pictures 1 and 2. End your blogpost with a summary, or a conclusion. This part goes either above or underneath your last picture. Voila.

There are of course different ways of blogging, and some write all in one and above all pictures and some put all the pictures in a gallery. But from reading lots of blogs, especially via my iphone this is the way I find it easiest to read any blog. Have a lovely day
