Home Office Inspiration with Superbalist

1

My job as a freelance web/graphic designer comes with many benefits, with one being the ability to decorate my own home office space. I could honestly spend all day on Pinterest creating boards filled with all the décor items that catch my eye. When it comes to my office space I’m drawn to a bright, fun and cute design palette. It’s a room you’re going to spend several hours in and this personal space needs to reflect your personality and at the same time keep you feeling upbeat and motivated. I spent a bit of time this weekend on the Superbalist website (apartment section) and compiled a little wishlist of things I’d love to add to my home office to freshen it up. It’s 2017 and I think it’s time for a change. Don’t you agree?  *wink*.

In case you haven’t noticed, I have a serious love for reading. In July (of 2016) I finally illustrated that love to all of you by starting up a new monthly feature called “Read My Lips”. I showcased the books I’d read and shared my musings on each novel. Since 2016 drew to a close I’ve had some people ask me about my favourite reads of the year, so I decided to compile a list of my 5 favourite books I read in 2016.

Festive #Lipglosskissmas photo challenge ?

0

It’s beginning to look a lot like LipglossKissmas. It’s that time again, folks – time for my annual festive photo challenge over on Instagram. The only difference this year is that I’ve shortened the challenge to 12 easy and manageable days. So, c’mon, we all have time to squeeze in 12 photos, don’t we? *wink*. The traditional 12 Days of Christmas start on Christmas day and lead on from there. However, I’m an impatient little elf and I wanted to start this challenge as soon as possible. This is undoubtedly the most magical time of the year – everything is shiny and bright and Instagram worthy. Will you be joining me this year?

Read My Lips – November Book Club

1. The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson

If you’re a fan of suspenseful novels like “Gone Girl” and “Girl on the Train” then this duplicitous story by Peter Swanson should be right on top of your reading list. The question that is posed to you, the reader, from the very beginning, is “Who is the kind worth killing?” Is there some truth behind the law of retaliation – an eye for an eye? Are we on some level entitled to terminate the lives of the morally repugnant people we encounter throughout our own lives? No, you can’t go around willy-nilly killing people who double-cross you. That’s not the way the world works. But somehow the author manages to take us along on this trip of murderous betrayal and leaves us with an unswerving sentiment of compassion for the likely ‘villain’.
