It’s been a while…

It’s been a while since my last post here and social media.

I have taken a break to learn, reflect and question.
Why am I here? Is my work truly valuable? What role does ego play in my life and how does it reflect in my work?

The break was truly needed. I needed to weigh up my values, as well as question those set by social media. I rediscovered my love for reading and spent this time immersing myself in topics that both quenched my thirst for knowledge and nurtured my growth.

I am back, but with a totally different mindset.

Don’t let social media control you. Don’t let it rule your life and never let it make you think you’re not worthy.

“We do not know each other, the two of us. This screen is not real life. If ever we are lucky enough to move beyond the pixels, I welcome it. (Head’s up: I’m a hugger.) And until then, regard me as a stranger, and take my words as such. Think of me as sanguine and spirited. Think of me as someone who exists beyond her thoughts and ideas, someone who is often-failing, often-learning. Think of me as me, today, a host of contradiction and chaos in a static, searching body.” – Erin Loechner

New from Design Of

One of my favourite Scandinavian design houses, Design Of, has just released their new accessories collection. Designed with longevity in mind, the new collection is as aesthetically stunning as it is functional.

Consisting of bowls, trays and a jewellery/stationery holders, the new pieces complement the existing collection perfectly.

If you are hyper organised and already planning for Christmas gifts, I can imagine these being perfect for just about anyone.
