Expanding my horizon on the great Kofi Annan and all his work for the UN, souvenir from Geneva reminding me of my sister every time I open my fridge, fruits of the sea enjoyed with friends, first real grown-up purchase (baby car!), vegetarian spaghetti bolognese with an old New York friend, and marveling at the my red hot Loubs while biking through the city.

 

A cluttered home is a cluttered mind

Since I’ve been posting interior design inspiration lately, I figured I’d give you a little peek of my own humble abode. These few shots pretty much summarize what it is about my place that makes me feel at home – my 10 year collection of glossy magazines, sentimental art pieces, miniature New York brought home from my stay in the city a few years back, books and books on end (and the custom book shelf made by my dad), solid classics (both furniture and accessory-wise), and of course my dear light-brown boxed beauties. Above all though – simplicity.

In the city of s**

I couldn’t have presented you with a more cliché post even if I tried. Hard. But I must admit – SATC will always be a limitless fountain of outfit inspiration, even to a classic/boring black-and-white-and-nude prude like myself. I recently revisited with the two movies, just to sit through 2 hours straight of bright outfits and accessories and hairstyles and shoes. See the main thread is timeless – brave, bold, adventurous personalities personify much better through color and vibrance than through 50 shades of black.
At least that’s what I’m feeling for now. So I’ll give it a go. The Carrie Way.
(PS I also watch for New York. Always always NYC <3 )
