Back to school – Back to blogging?

Hey there! How are you? It’s been a while, I know. I’ve been away for a few months, and I’d love to reconnect with you.  My last post dates back to the 25th of May, and I kind of hit a wall around that point. In the months prior, I had been running myself ragged, stressing and fretting constantly, not only about life or work, but especially about blogging. Inspiration had flown straight out of the window, that love and passion seemingly evaporated and all but lost, and I just did not want to blog anymore. Sounds crude, I know, but if I’m being completely honest, that’s exactly what it was. I just did not feel like blogging anymore. The ever-changing nature of blogging, Social Media and PR had thrown me for a loop, and I just disconnected. I needed a break. So I did just that, I allowed myself to take a break. To catch up with friends and family without constantly feeling the need to IG Stories the shizzle out of it, to …

Wanted: Christmas Inspiration

Christmas is in the air, and I am just bursting with excitement! I am beyond ready to deck the halls, decorate the tree and jingle all the way till Boxing Day! Much to my husband’s despair, I love going with a theme each, and after going red and gold these last few years, I feel torn this time. Red and gold really exudes that ultimate Christmas feeling of warmth, festivity and togetherness, but somehow I am also drawn to that crisp, fresh white Scandi Christmas feel (maybe I’ll keep that hint of gold)… On top of that, I am hosting the Christmas dinner this year and I took almost a fortnight off from work to be at home with the kids, so my mind is just bubbling with ideas, inspiration and recipes. All that’s left now is to create some order in the chaos that is my brain, and see where my hours spent procrastinating on the ingenious trap that is Pinterest will lead me… Pics via Pinterest

Headboard Dreams

We currently don’t have a headboard in our bedroom, as our bed is plainly positioned against a wall, but I can write books on the amount of times Mr B and I have gone back and forth on this subject. Yes, no, yes, no, an upholstered one, a rectangular dark leather one, yes, no, that one looks too cheap, that one is too bl**dy expensive etc etc…. We moved in together over 10 years ago, and at least half of that decade has been spent talking the talk,but not yet walking the walk. It’s been a while since we last attempted to find on that we both had an instantaneous love affair with, but lately inspiration had been bubbling again, and headboards have me dreaming once more (maybe a complete bedroom makeover whilst I am at it? ). Let’s take a trip down inspiration avenue… Pictures via Pinterest

Autumn Design Must Haves

Summer’s fading into Autumn over here, and I feel like sprucing things up a bit in the LeenLovesStyle household. We’ve been living here for ten years now (yes, 10! Feels like forever!), and after a decade of everyday routines, rummaging kids and evolving taste, it’s time for an injection of new-ness and  bit of tongue-in-cheek in our interior and daily lives. I’ve spent many a lunchbreak browsing the wonderful world of the world wide web, and there have been a few things lately that have my pulse racing. As always, coffee and softness are high on my wishlist, but the Cybex Hausschwein (home pig) really caught my eye. Cute (just look at it!) and practical (big enough to contain magazines, toys or blankets), that’s how we like it! 1 – Nespresso x Clio Goldbrenner travel mug holder / 2 – HK Living at Juttu Marble Board / 3 – Primark Glasses / 4 – City Sheep Rug / 5 – Hay Rainbow Tray / 6 – Ikea Vintner Pillow / 7 – Illy x Alessi …

5 Instagrams That Make My Heart Bloom

AKA credit where credit’s due… I admit, I am a social media addict, and especially Instagram knows how to tug my heart strings (and keep my mind occupied). Any moment of the day, Instagram is awash with beautiful feeds, pops of colours, floral hints of pastel and anything to please my visual OCD. Nothing inspires me like a stunning visual, so I’ve pulled together my five favourite feeds of the moment all dusted with a hint of magic and a sprinkle of inspiration for all of you to enjoy.                                                           BEAUTYMINDED BE View this post on Instagram Ready for a new week? 🌴 beautyminded.be will have some new articles about these loves this week! ❤️ | #beautyminded #tomford #neroliportofino #aceandtate #glossier #chanel #lamer #maccosmetics #burgundytimesnine #spanishpink #lapiscine #byredo #orchidsoleil #jomalone #starmagnolia #deciem #theordinary A post shared by Katia | BEAUTYMINDED (@beautymindedbe) on Apr 17, 2017 at 9:35am …

Aaaand we’re easing back into a new work week. Our little family holiday is over, and now it’s time to jump back into the daily grind. Time for a little recap?

White and gold heaven

It’s Sunday, time for my weekly interior design inspiration session, also known as “I really want to redo the whole of my house, but might have to wait a while longer….” This week, I’ve been crushing on white (#repeatoffender) with little touches of gold, both yellow and rose. A light fixture here or a kitchen or bathroom tap there, the hue of the accent forms a perfect offset that makes the white look even more pristine and calming, so hey, double whammy!  

Sunday Inspiration

I am a sucker for beautiful bathroom decors, and don’t we all know it. I admit, I am guilty as charged, so what better way to spend a lazy Sunday, especially a cold, freezing one like today, browsing for some bathroom inspiration. Hot cup of tea in one hand, legs cozily covered by softest blanket ever, kids are happily playing in their room (Thank heavens for Lego!) and I am floating away on clouds of marble, stunning bathroom vanities, deco inspiration and a renewed surge to tackle my bathroom. Happy a happy Sunday lovelies!   Pictures via Pinterest and Tumblr
