August is Women’s Month here in South Africa, and in addition to celebrating inspiring woman our mood this month is about sparking joy in our lives. We’re not about to go all Marie Kondo on you. Rather we are focussing on all the little details that bring a lot of happiness to our lives on a daily basis.
A bunch of fresh flowers, clean sheets, a perfectly organised pantry, the scent of your favourite candle, new lingerie, your morning cuppa savoured in peace… you all know what we’re talking about! A little self love can go a long way to making your day, week or month.
Here’s how we are sparking a little joy in our lives today. At the moment we cannot get enough of this white on white on white house for all the design details and interior inspiration. We are currently burning the Block & Chisel signature candle in our office and it is making us feel so relaxed and spa like. As a bunch of complete neat freaks we are upgrading our household accessories with this handbroom and dustpan from Weylandts, and have ditched ziplock bags in favour of the more environmentally friendly reusable stashers.
This article on gratitude gave us pause… “it turns what we have into enough, and more”
Gosh – all of that and its only the first day of the month. We’re excited for a whole month of sparking joy!
