Success Is Not A Straight Line

A few days ago I experienced a moment of such clarity that I wanted to share it with you today. It's that aha moment that opened up my soul and unburden me of a lot of negative thoughts.

I was watching clips of Oprah's Life Class with Steve Harvey. O yeah leave it to Miss Winfrey to provide a stage where real meaningful information is shared. Well mister Harvey was talking about the road to success (watch the clip below). He says that the road to success is always under construction. There are always things that will arise and that can cause you to deviate from your road. If you want to succede at anything you just need to stick with it and have blinders up.

The thing that struck a cord for me most was when the conversation turned to dealing with failiure. I have been spending so much of my time stressing and thinking about all the things that I was failing at (or failed at before) both profesionally and personally that I didn't realize it was the universe telling me I needed to take another road. Don't be afraid of trying new things because you don't want to fail. It's oke to fail it's the way you find out that the road you are on is not the right one for you. I believe that with all my soul now and that's why I wanted to share it with you today.

Don't be afraid to go in another direction!

Till next time.

De KrOOn by Moving Objects

A few weeks ago I heard about this chandelier called De KrOOn by Moving Objects. I fell for it immediately. One of the creators, Ankie Prij happens to be family. She is the hubsters cousin. It was she who introduced me to this chandelier. Ankie a concept designer and retailspecialst teamed up with business partner Ellen Wagenvoort a interior architect and product designer to form Moving Objects.

Their first product is De KrOOn. De KrOOn is customisable lamp that can be changed up to suit any space or user. As of now it has only found it's way to larger design projects such as the public library in The Hague. Measuring 1,5 meters across it's not an easy object to place in the average home. But I've got good news for you if you fell for this lamp as I did. Ankie and Ellen are working on creating a smaller version of De KrOOn.

What would you showcase in this chandelier? My I'm already thinking up party themes.

Have a great week. Till next time.

But I will be taking in all of that indiansummer you guys. That all said these Etsy finds are sure helping me to cope.

Till next time.

Woven Wall Hangings [Love Or Leave?]

I'm sure you've seen these popping up everywhere these days. You know those crochet/macrame/woven wall hangings that reminds one of the 1970's. Well these have been on my radar for months and months now but I was very quick to put all of them in the leave category. Until I saw some truly wonderful and colourful ones in different and materials around the web.
