What are the little things that make you dream about summer? Is it the scent of sunscreen and pine trees? The feeling of salt on your skin? The sound of waves or the song that reminds you of the first time you went to the seaside with your friends? Wind messing with your hair? Or is it your favourite summer dress or pair of bikinis? Maybe it’s just a pattern or a colour that reminds you of summer?
The new school year is getting closer and closer. Well, students luckily have one month more, but still, holidays are undoubtedly coming to an end. The first few days of school are always the hardest but the most exciting – you have to adjust to a schedule, prepare for your classes, but there are no big responsibilities, as you don’t have to study for your exams…yet:). I’m actually looking forward to college this year, because I only have few subjects and master’s thesis left and I plan to enjoy my last two years as a student.
I may have mentioned before that this year, I’m moving on my own. I spent most of this summer redecorating an old apartment and for the first time, I had no limitations (well, only the finance related ones :)). For the first time, I have no old furniture that the landlord wants to keep, I have no problems with investments as I don’t plan to change the place I live each year that I study … and I can finally have a big comfy bed! More about that later, for now I’ll talk about workspaces. Mine is still in the making, but here is a small preview of my little corner. And along with it, some photos that are currently inspiring me and giving me ideas about what I want my workspace to look like.
We all need some colour in our lives. Weather it’s on our clothes, on our cup of coffee, on our lips or in our notebooks. It makes your day better and brighter, every (yes, even the most boring) thing becomes at least a bit more fun. Imagine reading your college notes without some colourful markers, I get lost in a minute. Colour gives us focus, energy and strength.
Babushka Boutique opened its doors last week on Stari trg 18, Ljubljana. The old part of town is just perfect for a cute store filled with pretty little things. I find it hard to leave the store without buying anything and I definitely always leave it a bit more inspired and creative.
In Slovenia, October doesn’t mean only the beginning of the student year, but it’s also a month filled with many artistic and creative events, among them a festival named Month of Design. Through the month, people can visit exhibitions, seminars, fashion shows and take a moment to admire beautiful objects, from simple everyday product like hand blender to extravagant clothes and amazing interior design. And if you miss one or two events, there are still a lot more you can go to, as you can visit the festival till the beginning of November. All in all, it is worth a visit:) And a great opportunity for me and my two friends from First Blue Shoes and Peach Black to meet, hang out and do something useful at the same time (a.k.a. making us feel productive:)).
