SHOW CASE IT

Time to focus on some more of my great wants, a lovely display cabinet – to show case some of my favorite items. My biggest issue is the fact that I want one for each room. One for the hallway to keep shoes and other things to display, one for the kitchen for pots and pans with a special flair, one for the living room for the favorite books and other nick nacks, one for the bedroom for more clothes and shoes to hang about and one for the bathroom for all the items now stored in drawers…

Here is some visualisation of why I am in love with the display cabinet…

SUNDAY INSPIRATION FLOW

It’s time for one more of my inspiration flows… I have little new to report on, still caught in the midst of the cold of the century, think I’ll huddle my bum over to a doctor’s office tomorrow, pretty tired of responding to every question the H hands me with a series of coughs instead of words. I did take the time to go for a riding lesson with my sister one of the days though, it was sunny so I flipped the finger at the cold – and I do not regret it. Big horse does not seem so big any more, and I am slowly moving towards the goal of feeling totally comfortable on a horse again!

 Back to the flow of inspiration, here is a long list of “that” and “those” – enjoy!

BOURNEMOUTH

As I mentioned I spent a couple of days in Bournemouth, and I thought I would share some images with from the trip with you. This was a business trip so most days were spent focusing on work, but in between the hours of work I had some time to walk around the amazing beach and the city. The thing I enjoyed the most with the trip was being so close to the sea, I always feel more at peace when I’m close to the sea. And it gave me the opportunity to take time out of my day to just walk around on the beach and enjoy the fresh ocean air. Maybe I enjoyed it a bit too much, been sick for the last 5 days – the cold of the century has hit me! (I blame it on many hours in an enclosed space with too many people aka the airport)

PROJECT: IT’S A HORSE LIFE

Let’s start with the random fact – I’ve probably spent big parts of my life above ground, on the back of a horse. I guess the first time my lovely behind got on a horse I was around the age of 3 or 4, and after that it just all huddled in to a life consuming hobby. I stopped when I started my studies, of course I indulge in the company of horses as often as possible but it is unfortunately not as big a part of my life as it used to be, and I want to change that. I miss spending my days in the stable, training horses and the quality of life it brings with it. I have a job that gives me a week off in between rather intense work shifts, and right now these weeks are spent with the dog or the H (not that I don’t enjoy the company of these two, but I do have a lot of time left over that could be used in a stable with a heavy-set companion)

So today I huddled up some cash and got my self some long over due new additions to the equine wardrobe.

Basically the plan now is; within a year from finishing my driving licence (also something I’ve kept on hold as I finished my studies), I’m going to buy a horse. So in between now and the day I finally get back to having a horse I am going to start figuring out my skills all over again, with the help from my sister and her lovely horse.

I will share images from my journey towards getting back into the equine lifestyle, but as we wait for equipment to arrive and hours spent on top of tall creatures – here is some visual inspiration which hopefully shows some of the reasoning for wanting this to become a huge part of my life again.

TRAVEL WISH LIST – US CITIES

As I am writing this I am sitting in a hotel room in Bournemouth, enjoying a view of the beach… This time around most of my journey will be connected to staying just there, in the hotel – I’m on a business trip so I do not have the free reins to do exactly what I want to and I am also travelling solo. I prefer travelling with company, to me half of the fun is sharing the trip with someone… But getting away from home is always a bit of a blessing, new scenery kicks the mind into gear and the old scenery is shed in a different light every time I return from somewhere new.

Getting away from the regular routine of life, being in a different country and enjoying my own company for more than the usual 2 hour period has got me thinking of places I want to explore (without the responsibility of work and preferably with someone else), so I’ve gotten back to the fun of creating lists. This time around about places I want to travel to – or as the title says “Travel Wishlist(s)”, the first I want to share with you is my travel wishlist of US cities. The list is pretty long, so I have decided to cut it down to five at a time – so that it doesn’t end up being overfed. And of course, to follow each city will be some visual input, to visually explain my reasons why I want to see these places.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

1. Austin

Austin is high on my list of places to visit in general.  There is something attractive about the vibe this city seems to have – just afraid I would want to toss my ticket home out the window and stay for good.

2. Chicago

I would love to see Chicago, why – I do not know. It’s just this faint feeling I’ve got that I would enjoy the city quite a bit. I guess part of it is connected to the name it’s made for it self when it comes to great food – I am a fan of splurging on great food when I travel… So let’s say it’s based on the need for (or more want for) great food experiences.

3. San Francisco

I  simply want to experience this city on my own, I know a lot of people who have fallen head over heels for this place. Want to figure out if I’ll fall in love to.

4. Seattle 

Hello Pacific Northwest! I’ll just tell you like this; music, food, nature and city life all huddled into one ball of greatness… This is the “grew-up-by-the-sea” gene looking for what seems like home.

5. Savannah

This one is based upon the pure hope that it is as charming as it looks in images.
