Last week I made a rather radical change to my hair. For years I've had it long now, and even though I liked it I thought it was time for a change. On and off my Google searches has contained a lot of shorter hairstyles. And I felt like I wanted to do it, but still lacked the courage. Until I reached the point where I absolutely disliked my long hair. It was always in the way and getting stuck everywhere. Because my hair is quite thick it got heavy and caused a lot of headaches when kept in a ponytail.
Let's just say I hated it, and couldn't wait for a change.
Imagine the relief when I finally went to the hair salon and got the cut I've been prepping for for such a long time. It was about time!
Now I'm absolutely in love with my new hair! It's light and falls beautifully. It still takes some time to air dry, but not hours like before. And the best part is that I actually feel like I look good again! What a change a haircut can make.
You know that feeling we sometimes get when looking back at a day, wondering what you've accomplished and where the day went. I have it too often! It's a wonder I ever get things done I think. But I want it to change. So I'm starting with baby steps in the direction towards an organised life.
1. I have started drinking lemon water during the days when I'm working and studying. It's such an easy thing to do, but somehow it works. I feel much more awake and fresh, which makes me want to get things done.
2. I have started organising a sort of office for me at home. A place for my computer and for my projects. Otherwise they're all over the house, with no real place. I hope this will get me feeling more organised and willing to do stuff.
3. I've made a monthly calender to keep on the wall next to my desk. This will help me get an overview of the month and everything that needs to me done. Because of that I hope I won't get surprise deadlines.
Unfortunately my office isn't ready yet, I need to get a few things for it to be finished, such as a lamp (it's so dark here right now). But when it's done I'll show it, and hopefully it will inspire someone else to get organised.
Do you have any tips on how to get things done? Please tell me, I need all the help I can get!
One of my favourite pieces of furniture is this sideboard. I found it many years ago in an old sort of relatives attic. Somehow I fell in love with it instantly, and it was mine from that moment.
We haven't had any space for it now for a couple of years. And I have been longing for the day when I could bring it back into my life. A couple of weeks ago we decided to rearrange our upstairs area. And with that, a possibility came for it to move in. I'm so thrilled to have it back.
What I love about it is the possibility to hide stuff you don't want visible at all times. Now it hold all our DVD:s, which I never liked having out in the open. Not that they're bad, we have a really good collection, but there are too many films for them to ever look good on shelves.
Who could have known all those years ago that this would turn into such a beloved item.
