I'm having a moment with neutrals and neon brights. This month's calendar was inspired by this pin. I really love that look. I need to find myself a trench coat.

So far, one of my favourite stores in Finland has got to be Tiger. I don't know quite how to describe it other than to say it's sort of like an upscale, cooler version of the dollar store. There're so many neat things, I usually have to wander around twice just to get a look at everything.

Probably one of the best things I've spotted was a basic spirograph. Since getting this mini one, I have not been able to put it down. The combination of patterns is endless and no matter what I do, the designs always turn out super pretty. I'm completely addicted!

Thankfully, we have gotten ourselves a scanner/printer, so I made some designs and scanned them in for a desktop wallpaper this month. I hope you like it!

friday fixations


{fantastic franks} Oh man, these house listings are killing me! Not only is the styling and photography fantastic, but they've also added gifs. For a real estate company, this is pretty killer (found here).

{what city should you live in?} This is a fun little quiz. I had to guesstimate on a couple of them -- I don't have a favourite Beyonce. But I got London, what did you get?

{craigslist mirrors} When I first heard about this, I was very much meh about it but now I can't look away. Some of these are surprisingly artistic! This is just one of my favourites.

{cereal tea} This idea makes me smile! Can you imagine getting a little box of CEREAL tea as a gift? I wish I would have thought of it first!

{chinese new year} I really like this song. And also happy year of the horse!

diys i didn't: valentine edition

valentine diyClockwise from left: Idle Husband loves bread, so it would totally make sense to print up some of these baguette bread bags; this scandinavian inspired wooden heart would fit right into any room; sweetheart charms add a little cuteness to your keys; I would keep these copper arrows on the wall year round; With a he-man flower holder, you CAN get your man flowers (not a diy, but you can fioy = figure it out yourself); this tassel knife valentine is just a good excuse to buy proper spreading knives (you don't know how awesome they are until you have one); the I lava you pop-up card's cheesiness is perfectly charming.

 Obviously, it's February which means only one thing (Valentine's day), so I thought I'd do something a little more romantic this month. (Although, I would use this one any time I'm in a pink mood.)
