One thing you can't never leave without is your camera. Doesn't matter what kind it is...you just need one to capture your memories, your moments. I really love to take photographs and not pictures of me but of random things that are surrounding me at that moment of time.
I wanted to share with you some moments I capture on a few of my wanderlust trips with my husband. The two pictures below are taking in the center city of Surinam, Paramaribo. We went there for exactly 5 days, minus 2 days for traveling, so actually we just enjoyed 3 whole days of Surinam. We stayed 2 nights in Krasnapolsk, which is located in downtown of Paramaribo and we stayed 2 nights at the Eco-Resort Bergendal. This resort is located outside of Paramaribo in a part of the Amazon of Surinam. At Bergendal my husband went zip lining and I enjoyed a friendly conversation with a local lady, who was always staying there. These pictures below are taking in downtown. It was a Sunday and everything was closed. I really love the mystery of these pictures, because it feels like it is an abandoned city. This country has a lot of history and it's shown in the buildings. To bad we didn't have more days to explore all of it.
This picture of the sign I captured when we were going out of Paramaribo to Bergendal. Random things often catch my eye when wander-lusting.
The following pictures are taking in the city of Knoxville, USA. The last one is one taking from our resort in Gatlinburg and looking into the Smokey Mountains. They really do smoke.
So don't forget your camera, cause the moments are always waiting for you to be captured.
What are your moments? Do share.

OK ok...I know I already have shown Emily Henderson working space here, BUT, there is a but and a huge one. She and her team relocated to a new office space and I couldn't resist not sharing this with you guys. I mean, waking up every morning (or at lunch) to go to this amazing colorful space? I say...HECK YEAH!! I love, once again, those huge almost to the ceiling windows. It brings so much light in. Just fantastic. My day to day wall at the office is a blue-ish color with no view of anything. It's a bit depressing, if I say so myself. Clearly no empty wall here to see, which I love. The hanging wallpaper display is a great way to change things up easily. Hello Yellow Bench, where have you been all my life?
Once again, a working space that is creative and ready to inspire me and alot of other people around the world. What do you love about this creative working space? Do tell.

Today we are going to look at a marvelous renovation of a shed becoming a wonderful home to live in. This little beautifull cottage, as it is now, is from designer, artist and stylist Paige Morse. She needed a space to work, which eventually came her home to live in. I mean really, how much do we really need, if you see such a beautiful living piece of art?
I'm loving the dark floor with the white walls and ceiling. With an all white and basic color interior. How can you not fall in love?
I'm just going to ignore the fact that it's Monday and ask you about your weekend. Did you have a relaxed one, filled with great stuff to do and eat? I had a weird weekend, my body doing weird annoying stuff and I had some working do to and not the kind I would have wanted to spent my weekend doing. But the fun part of the weekend was that we change the colors of our living-room / kitchen wall. Love changing up things in our home. That is why today I'm going to jump start your week with some lovely patterns to inspire you to have a colorful week. Let's dive in!!
I'm in love with pattern number 7. Wish I could find a fabric with that pattern to go wild on my furniture. Patterns will let your interior come to live. On your wall in an art print, on a pillow, on a sofa, on a bench, you name it. It will make the room pop. Check out more patterns on my pinterest.
Have a great Monday.
It's Friday and before sending myself off to a full-packed working weekend at home, I'm going to send my blog love to one of my favorite blogs out there. SfgirlbyBay is one of the most inspiring blogs out there. The blog is so beautiful with all those amazing pictures of homes or stores spotted in San Francisco. I just want to life and work in her blog. That city is so on my must see and visit list. Miss Victoria, I applaud you!
Have a great weekend ya'll and if you have lots of DIY to do at home, just...

Some good friends of ours are in Australia now for vacation and I'm really jealous. But because Thursday Travel went to Australia on two occasions, here and here, we heading more down under to New Zealand. When looking around for information of New Zealand, I couldn't imagine that there is so much to do and see. So take your fancy handbag of last week and your camera, cause we are going to shop and take some pictures for a great vacation scrapbook.
First, lets go in to this cute boutique, Match Box, that offers beautiful design of international and local artists. It's a great place for them to showcase their collections. I just love this showcase. Such a happy entrance to the store. Lets shop baby!!
Lets go take a bite at this great restaurant, Loretta. I would just go there to be amazed by the interior.
The interior was stripped bare to it's shell and textured, imperfect concrete walls were layered with contemporary light-colored timber furniture, warm leather banquette seating and rustic detailing.
And after doing some eating and shopping, what greater aspect is there to vacation to New Zealand than to see some beautiful, amazing scenery. As my husband loves the nature and as a photographer myself, this is a great view to get lost in. *Sigh* ... such a peaceful sight.
Hello fellow Monday dislikers. I'm here with you feeling the pain. I had a lovely weekend, some laziness, some working and some listing. Overall a great weekend. As we are doing some fixing at home, adding some new value to the home, I'm thinking to upholster my ottomans and my 2 fauteuils. I really love ottomans or poufs in a living-room or bedroom or just anywhere. So I went looking for some cute ottomans or poufs. How do you like these?
It's Friday baby and the week might be over, but there will be some hard work pending for this weekend. But what the heck, it's my hard work and then when we see the results, it will be all worth it. But before I say "ADIOS Amigos", I wanted to share some love to different blogs every Friday from now on. I really love reading and seeing pictures of different blogs each day. It's so inspiring. So today I wanted to share the blog of Pauline Egge of Petite Passport. It's a great blog about traveling and the great hot spots to visit. I haven't seen the whole blog, but from what I've seen..I'm loving it!! (with JT tune in my head).
So go and get inspired and you go inspire somebody else this weekend, while being freaking...
Wherever you work, the space needs to inspire you to be creative in your work and to let you get work done. One thing that for me is very important in a work space, is that everything needs to organized. Not so much when you working, but in an all-around mode. I love when the space is clean and organized. That is really shown in the working space of KNOED CREATIVE, a branding and design studio. My favorite element of this space are those huge windows that brings the light in, making the space very open. Once again a white to white floor to wall concept in this space, making it bigger than it really is. The concept of Less is More is definitely shown here, but what more do you need?! Very industrial look but with the openness of the space, it's such a pretty space to look at. Two thumbs up for this space.
I'm not a big fan about the outside of this container home. I guess if they repainted it, it would be more flattering. BUT if we take a look inside...OH MY WOW. It's like huge (yes, I'm still looking to downsize in this concept), but it isn't. The white walls makes the space look bigger and it is in great contrast with the dark wooden flooring. It's a combination of 2 containers, making it a spacious but reasonable great living space.
This home I had yesterday on my inspirational pins to jump start my week. It's painted in one of my favorite color:Yellow. It's a small container, but up to 4 people can sleep in it. And you can't go yellow without going GREEN. The solar panels make use of the biggest "yellow": The Sun!! Making the energy bill go way down. So two thumbs for this yellow home.
Do we really need a lot of space to live? Actually no. Do you live in a small space but your inside is well organized that it seems very much spacious? Do share.

Oh where, oh where did my long weekend go? It went by so quickly, that I'm kind of lost today. And I really don't like when it's a working Monday after a long weekend. I prefer a working Tuesday. So today I overdosed myself with several inspiration pins, to jump start my week with a creative vibe.
Happy Monday...(positive thinking).
