The lisbon guide 1 - ByMeryl

Another travel guide and this time from the lovely Lisbon. I am big city trip lover and really enjoy making and reading guides like this. I read great things about Lisbon and it was high on my wishlist so in May, during my move, my boyfriend and I decided to have a little break in this beautiful city. I hope you enjoy this Lisbon guide. View Post

An interior update with plants

An interior update with plants - ByMeryl

-A little disclaimer this post was written before my move, an update on the move and my life will follow soon.-

If you told me two years ago that my room would be filled with plants, I wouldn’t have believed you. I always assumed that I could not keep them alive and that they would be too much work. I have to admit that I still struggle with the keeping them alive part (my boyfriend wants to buy me the book “how not to kill your plants”) but I do love the fresh feel they bring to a room. So in this post I am sharing my new additions and favorite small houseplants.  View Post

Florals for Spring? (my spring fashion wishlist)

Spring wishlist - ByMeryl

There is no season that excites me as much on the clothing front as spring. Don’t get me wrong I love a comfy sweater, but as soon as February rolls around, I am so done with the cold that I can’t wait for spring. I did a quick browse in the shops and made a spring wishlist of all the items I will need in my closet. Will this finally be the season I start my capsule wardrobe? We’ll see. View Post

5 minute tasks - ByMeryl

We all have these random 5 minutes. The 5 minutes you spend waiting on public transport, in the checkout line in the grocery store, the 5 minutes waiting for your friends to arrive. I usually spend mine scrolling through my social accounts, which isn’t very helpful, and I bet you do too. Today however I am sharing 5-minute tasks that will actually make your life easier.  View Post

I changed my hair! I actually changed my hair quite drastically compared to my usual just trimming the ends kind of haircuts. I went through a personal change and suddenly I also felt like a hair change. Let me tell you more.  View Post
