Free Printable Christmas Gift Tags and Gift Wrap

Download at Oana Befort It’s come to my attention that there are only TWO WEEKS until Christmas. Oh…oh my. By a show of hands, who is totally ready for Christmas?! Gifts all purchased and wrapped? Umm…NOT ME! To hopefully help make the process a little easier for you all (and me!), I’ve rounded up lots […]

Celebrating new beginnings!

new beginnings, new home, moving, Mumm alkoholfrei, Mumm sparkling wine, non-alcoholic, plants

Cheers to new beginnings! Lately my life feels like an endless chain of new beginnings. All of this is utterly exciting but quite often pretty exhausting too. Moving apartments is just insane. There is so much to do, so much to organize, quite frankly at times it feels just too overwhelming. But as always in life, everything comes together after a while. For me the last weekend was an important moment: I moved my last bits and pieces from the old apartment to the new home. Time to cheer with a glass of (non-alcoholic) sparkling wine!

I am truly grateful for all the people who helped me along the way. Otherwise it would have been just insane. Alone and without a car it would have been impossible. But if you surround yourself with good people, there will always be a helping hand when you need it. And I am truly grateful for that. Now that all things are in my new place, I just have to zoom out the mess and live with it. This transition period is quite crazy but fun too. I am literally living in the midst of moving boxes and trash bags stuffed with my clothes and shoes. Getting dressed in the morning is always something like a little treasure hunt digging through bags and boxes.

I was pretty anxious about moving my many plants. However, I must say those little green fellows coped pretty well. Apart from one yellowed leaf and an injured cactus all went well. Given the fact that I have no kitchen yet, almost all my plants are gathered in the kitchen. Next stress factor: Coming Friday the new kitchen will be delivered and I have to clear the room until then. Lord mercy! I think I will need another bottle of sparkling wine by then!

But I won’t complain. Overall I am very happy (even though I am pretty exhausted by now). For now I will continue to sip on my glass of Mumm Sekt without alcohol (yeah you heard right, but I really need a clear head for the move). So here’s to new beginning! Cin cin!

Light it up and get cosy with LZF

Where there is light, there is life. What applies mostly in nature, is not much different for us and our homes. Is there anything more simple and satisfying than warm light at home to make it cosy? Light some candles, switch on different lights and get cosy at home. I love to have multiple light sources in every room and today I want to introduce you to my latest addition: the Chou lamp by LZF.

A variety of lighting sources emitting warm light is key to cosiness at home to me. Of course in addition to lush and happy houseplants. Maybe some of you remember my visit to the headquarters of LZF in Spain two years ago. I blogged about their inspiring headquarters HERE and the most magic garden party with LZF HERE. Since 2015 this brand has been on my side and now the charming Chou lamp moved in with me in my new home.

Creating warm light is essential to me – not only for the sake of cosiness but also to get creative. In a creative space I can actually get creative myself. And light is a crucial factor to make this happen. I reckon it is not a big surprise for many of you that I opted for a blue Chou lamp, right? After all I love this colour and especially the hue on the veneer – when the lamp is switched on it has a wonderful glow!

Oh I just realized these are the first pictures from my new apartment for the blog! Well, I am showing just a corner of my living room as the other side is stacked with moving boxes. I am still waiting for the majority of furniture to arrive. But in the meantime I thought you will appreciate this little corner. Stay tuned for more insights into my new home soon!

Gift Ideas for Art & Nature Lovers

The festive season is in full swing here in Munich. I assume it is similar elsewhere. And every year there is the haunting question: What to offer as a Christmas present? Now in my case I can say my list of people who get a Christmas present is pretty short. Not because I don’t like to offer presents, but most people I know seem to have everything already. Still sometimes I do need some new gift ideas and I figured there are some of you out there happy to get a few more ideas too. So today I brought one idea with me: presents for art and nature lovers!

As I love both myself, I thought this is a good start. I love to change the art in my home on a regular basis so art gifts are a welcome addition. However, key to the succcess with gifting art is that you know the style and taste of the other person. If you are not sure, you might want to opt for something else or for an art voucher. But if you know the other person, go for a beautiful piece of art for their home. If you are a nature lover or you have frinds who love nature and art, have a look at the fab selection of gift ideas for nature lovers by Juniqe. I have often bought art for myself at Juniqe and keep returning to their site to get new ideas. For this blogpost I scored a beautiful framed dragonfly poster from this category and offered it as a pre-Xmas gift to my friend Ben. I just knew this would fit into his home perfectly and look how wonderful it looks in his stylish bedroom! Nice, right?

Juniqe is a great source of inspiration for art prints. What I also like is that you can get your favorite piece of art already framed because I find it tedious to look for a nice and stylish frame as it is quite tricky sometimes. Here for example you can see a huge variety of posters in standard frames. They come to your home ready to be hung.

If you are still in need of Christmas presents, have a look at the section with gift ideas by Juniqe. Nowadays Juniqe is way more than a webshop for art prints. Textiles, accessories, stationery, fashion items – the selection is really big. I still have some wonderful framed art pieces from Juniqe at home (maybe you remember this blogpost) but I am already thinking of new art for my walls in the new apartment. Let’s see what I come up with in 2018! Up to then I wish you a happy gift hunt!
