It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas!

I was browsing through the Internet and stumbled upon this quote. Even though I’m not a mom, I love the way this lady put her thoughts into words. I thought about me growing up and about all the memories we created during the holidays and it immediately put a smile on my face. Living in the US with a young family, I love how they are building up and creating their own traditions! Continue reading

Travel typography


Wanderlust-6

This semester I took a couple of art classes and among those was a Lettering and Typography class. For one of the last assignments we had to pick a quote and chose a word that described the quote and we had to present it in a typographic way, which basically means that we couldn’t use images to illustrate the word.

Walk the walk & Talk the talk

“Travel as much as you can. As far as you can. As long as you can. Life’s not meant to be lived in one place.”

Doesn’t this quote perfectly fit in with this picture? Do you have a favorite travel quote? I’d love to know about it! For my typography class I have to make a final project and the only things we have to do is to chose a word and a quote and create a nice typographic poster with it. I decided to chose for Wanderlust as the word I’m going to work with. I’m just not completely sure yet which quote I should use in my work. Continue reading

Change your words, change your world!


I stumbled upon this video today and I love the message that it brings with.

Watching videos like this one, make me happy. They make me see that there are actually people in the world who do things for other people without expecting anything in return. I love how the lady just stopped and changed the words  and I loved how people are more inclined to do something good after seeing some positive words. I was really surprised that the blind guy trusted her so much that he just let her change the words. It shows that some people really do see the good on others.

I like stumbling up to positivity when I’m walking on the street, reading a book, listening a song or even browsing the web. I love how a simple quote can change your mood and how it can make you think about something a little deeper.

Workout or warm up?

For me being fit is something really important. I have always liked working out and especially running. I remember when I just started running that distances like 5k seemed so far! I didn’t know how to start on that and thought that I would need more than an hour. Today, running a 5k is an easy run, a run that I would do on a ‘rest day’. I run 5k in 25 minutes, so for me that’s a great accomplishment. 10k’s are getting easier too, but the hard part about those is that I want to finish them within an hour. I like running rather fast, so normally that’s not such a big problem to accomplish that!

In May I’m going to run my first half marathon in Santa Barbara and I can’t wait to start training for that one! I will follow a 12-week training program and since I’ve never done something like that before, I’m sure it’s going to be a huge challenge! 😉

What’s the longest distance you’ve ever ran?
