january favourites



The new year has started upbeat and full of energy. My husband went abroad for work, leaving Lou and I as a girl team for over a week. I decided (on top of work, care and play) to repaint the kitchen, redesign our bookshelves and continue work on the nursery. I came up with over ten ideas for articles, both for the journal and for some of the magazines I work for. I took time for my yogapractice, for self-massage and lenghty home spa sessions. I slept well and cherished everything on my path. It’s amazing what mood does to a person. I have always been an optimistic soul but still, I am awed by the not-to-be-missed charged and determined energy that has taken over my persona. No doubt flamed by the little person growing inside of me. Today I’ll share with you some of the beautiful things that have tinted life bright this month. Objects and experiences that have ignited my engines, put a smile to my face and a spring in my step. Scroll down for some start-of-the-year inspiration.


Xoxo Kyra.
