Today isn’t just any day, its my blogs birthday! Its already been a year since I released the news about this platform of mine. I remember how excited I was, all the work and planning that went on before it came to it final result as well as how the landscape has revolved as I have. Its been a mirror of me, reflecting parts of me and my life but mostly whats bee happening on a profounder level while being a window for other to get glimpse of whats happening.
Never could I have imagined that this blog would open up door to so many great opportunities and experiences. I’ve found friends because of the blog and met so many inspiring creatives, but most importantly I’ve been able to share my story with you guys. I am very grateful you, you are my friends too and this platform wouldn’t be what it is if it wasn’t for you.
A lot can happen in a year, and apparently many hair colours too (haha!) and I am excited to see what the future holds.
The endless dilemma of everyday: what to wear? Although the mood and days look different from day to day, there are three key pieces that I always come back to regardless my state of mind (that dictates the biggest part of how I dress) and schedule.
I love knitsso much that I not wearing one, but two here. That scarf around my neck is actually a sweater and works just as good yet adds another flavour to the outcome.
A pair of well-fitted jeans goes a long way, no let me rephrase that. Its goes all the way, I have to sometimes remind myself to wear something other than blue jeans, thats when I wear a black or grey pair. No, just kidding, that when I wear a pair of culottes or cropped flare.
The bags is mostly the cherry on the pie, my to-go bag is Proenza Schouler PS11 mini bag. Why you might think while thinking of my Chanel Boy bag. That one is special too, but the Proenza was my first. My very first, and there’s just something special with that. The design of the bag with its metals details speaks profoundly to me and works to every outfit, every day of the week.
If I am not wearing these three key pieces together, than I most likely wearing at least one or two. But I always come back to them because they always work as a charm.
Its that time of the year: another year is coming to an end, the weekends are filled with activities to prepare for Christmas such preparing for the big day and buying gifts. For me, I like to spend time with my loved ones. Yesterday I spent my day with my sister and her kids. We baked saffrons buns, ginger bread cookies and a ginger house. If you are following me on snapchat (username: sara_che) you’ve maybe
witnessed our colourful and eclectic gingerbread house. Lets just say that it was vert colourful (haha!). I am grateful to be have my family close so I can spend time with them, I’ve lived far away from them over 11 years. And with time I’ve learned that spending my time wisely is a good investment. Therefore I’m keeping my circle positive, with people who matter the most and adds love and light to the circle.
Wearing watched wasn’t something I was found of when I was younger, I managed to keep track on time with my phone. Things are different today, a watch for me is more than just an accessory today or a tool to keep track of my day to day tasks. Its a constant reminder to conduct my time according to my goal of maintaining a positive and joyful circle, which is why chosen this brand with its rich and inspiring story.
Filip Tysander met a man during his trip around British Isles who was wearing a vintage watch with a NATO strap. His name was Daniel Wellington and the main inspiration to was going to become Daniel Wellington watches. Filip’s story is inspiring and a reminder that everything is possible, something I am sure most of us apply to our own lives regardless of our paths.
So for me, this watch is a reminder that the time is now. Don’t wait for the ‘right’ timing, instead create it. Besides, whats the purpose of doing all the things that we are if it is not for the purpose of feeling good? Or else, what’s the use of doing it? Isn’t it amazing how one person story and journey can inspire others. Knowing Filip’s journey adds a whole other spectrum to the watches that I appreciate. The watch is so much more, its a persons dream who’ve become reality.
The watches design are merged classic influences with a modern touch, a translation of mixing Swedish and English design so perfectly that everyone can wear it. Hence, a really good gift (my mother agrees, she got one from me on her birthday a couple of weeks ago). Thanks to Daniel Wellington I have the perfect discount code just in time for the christmas shopping, use discount code saracheDW to get 15% off your purchase until January 15, 2016. A great gift for him and her indeed.
After past weeks change of apartment while attempting to maintain the same work and social life rhythm (and the sun shining with its abcense) my body have been screaming to get some rest. And if you are anything like me (can’t really sit still) it can take a real effort to make sure that actually happens.
Although a home environment can be the perfect option for a time out, I always find something I need to do and in a matter of minutes I am back to not sitting still. Hence, the change of strategy. My latest mantra that I am attempting to apply on every aspect of my life is to do what you love, so when I can’t sit still at home I need to find a place I love to sit still at.
I passed Pontus a week after I had dropped off a bag of cloths from cleaning my closet at my friends Viktoria who works at Red Cross store. Big wide windows, marble tables, large variation of different bakery with a cosy ambiance that looked welcoming while passing by. And it was, perfect ‘fika’ spot so I took the opportunity to indulge in a saffron bun.
I took a two hour time out, read a news paper and looked at the people passing by as the rain poured down. Not only did I sit still for those two hours but I also enjoyed it. As the people passed by, so did my thoughts and I felt more cleared afterwards. With me, as always I carry my Olympus Pen camera I managed to capture the beautiful ‘fika’ moment on the marble table as memory of my little time out.
Its about the little things, and what I love about giving gifts or even receiving them is that its clear that there’s a thought behind it. So if you know anyone who loves coffee, or just a coffee drinker? A nice coffee mug can actually add to the coffee experience. If its a person who drinks coffee on a daily basis, the person will most likely think of you every time he/she drinks from the mug.
I have picked out a few options for him and her, as well as tea drinkers in various price ranges so click away and let me know if you see something you like.
