Creating my creative space

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a lovely weekend so far – and a great week, of course! I’m still not a 100% fit and stayed home most of the weekend to get healthy faster. When I’m home that much I normally get completely cracked. I can’t just sit there and wait and hope to be fit again by monday. Instead, I looked at my workroom, which I like to call my creative space, and noticed it is far from inspiring me. When I moved in everything just got kinda placed there, you know? Especially my bookshelfs really annoyed me. They were so messy, all books basically just thrown in without any order. I do however like it when things are in order, or semi-order. In fact, I love my books sorted by color. Don’t get me wrong though, my bedroom can easily become a chaos – luckily, a chaos I always have a good overview of.

So this weekend was dedicated to cleaning up my apartment, moving my furniture around and making it a little prettier. I wanted that this-is-home-feeling. I also moved around the sofa in the living room and gave that room a whole new perspective. I think I quite like it though I will test it for a few days now. I flipped one of the bookshelfs over and noticed that I can fit almost all my books in one bookshelf. Ok, I do have some others which were stored somewhere else. I used the other bookshelf to display my photography-books, my fashion books and most importantly: my magazines. Not all, but the most important ones are all sorted by date. I still have quite a bit of reading regarding those – I actually still haven’t had the chance to look into some of the September ones. Now the October ones are covering the rest already.

So I thought I’d share some of that with you. Next I am going to sink into my sofa and start learning a bit. Yep, I though I had left that one behind with Uni. Obviously you never stop learning as such, but studying has really become an effort after one year not doing it haha. I’ve always wanted to dive, so finally I have taken the chance and bought a course:  I am now learning all the theory parts of becoming an Open Water Diver. How cool is that? Coral reefs – here I come!

My World of Magazines

1 Permalink

Two weekends ago I was in Hamburg and upon buying some necessities, which are cheaper in Germany than Zurich, I couldn’t resist but buy a load full of magazines at the airport. I love diving into my perfect little bubble, which I call my world of magazines. I can spend ours flipping through the pages, looking at the pictures and then taking the next one. After I flipped through all of them, I start going to the first magazine to actually read some of the articles. I used to read so much more magazines, though nowadays barely do I have the time for it. I could, I guess, read before going to bed. Though  most of the evening, after work, I love doing absolutely nothing – and I mean nothing. I can stare at a wall for 1 hour and relax, calm down and enjoy the quiet peaceful moment. Weird, I know.

These magazines are actually a perfect example of it, I have bought these two weeks ago and at most, I have gone through 3 of them fully. The good thing about it though, they last – so long! I used to read them all at once and then was annoyed for having to wait a whole month for the next ones to come out (for most magazines). Now it’s perfect – after about 4 weeks I have read most of them, or hopefully all, and can buy the next stack. The only one missing here is the Vogue – though – my mother has taken on a subscription on it, for me. Thank you!

Which is your favorite, must have and fully read-through magazine?
