Måndagspepp & Tips links

Hej måndag! Efter en helg som denna behövs verkligen en rejäl dos måndagspepp, speciellt eftersom tempot den här veckan ser ut att bli lika högt... Midtermsvecka coming up! Dessutom har jag fått, vad det verkar, mitt första frilansjobb som ska vara klart i slutet av veckan. Vart är min inre superwoman nu då? Får sikta in mig på den lugna helgen som vankas efter fredag, då kommer Oscar hit och det står chillax i fet stil på schemat. Och sluka i mig måndagspeppen och tipsen som kommer här!

Hey Monday! After a looong week and weekend I really need a big dose of pep talk to get back to business. This week's gonna be quite intense too with midterms and my first freelance job (wheyy) due on Thursday. So here goes!

4 meditation tips from a Yogi to calm down in 30 seconds

Jag gillade verkligen den här artikeln om en kille som flyttade från ett retreat i Arizona till New York och höll på att tappa förståndet. Han tog sig upp igen genom att använda sig av de knep han lärt sig på retreatet. Du hittar dem här!

I really liked these 4 tips on how to calm down in 30 seconds, perfect to use them when you're super stressed.

Time management tips

Quartz har sammanställt ett par vassa tips på hur du får så mycket gjort som möjligt genom att foka på din uppmärksamhet istället för din tid. Tänkvärt!

Another good article, this one on how to manage your attention to get as much work done as possible.

A list of things to do when you're sad

Tyckte den här var fin. Spara och skriv ut för en regnig dag!

A list for a rainy day. Save it for a rainy day!

Monday pepp & tips links

Monday has graced us with its presence, or maybe not graced us, maybe more slapped us in the face with a cold fish and now we need some pick me up tips to get this thing called life going, am I right??

As I might have mentioned a couple of (thousand) times I have my final critique tomorrow, which means I am going to present all of my work I've done during this term to the whole fashion faculty. The teachers here at PCA aint any teachers, they're extremely talented people who've worked at places like Dior, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Louis Vuitton, Céline, and so on and so forth. So this post is well needed for me too!

Here are this week's happy thoughts, from changing how you think to become happier and how to land that dream job in fashion!

Think happy

If you think you are happy, you become happy. It's (almost) as easy as that! Quartz shared the concept (backed up by science) here!

Crafting helps

If you're a person who suffers from anxiety or depression, crafting might help you to cope with everyday life. Buzzfeed asked their readers what they have crafted due to mental illness, and it's pretty darn great. Take that anxiety and make a pillow case out of it!

Happy bingewatching

Bustle shares 9 Netflix documentaries to watch if you're feeling down and out. I put a few of the down on my must watch list!

Getting that dream job

Who what wear spills the beans on how to land a job in fashion. It's focused on the states but can work internationally. I can vouch for a few of them tips too.

FLUFF

Last but not least, puppies in santa hats!!! Because doggies make everything better.

Good morning Monday! Another new week is here, and as a matter of fact this year only has four weeks left. How crazy is that! Zooooom said 2015. Let's make the best of the weeks still left in it then. Here are this week's Monday pepp & tips links.

Christmas Cards

'tis the season to write Christmas cards, and on that topic I've found two handy tips (pardon my pun) on hand lettering. Firstly, how to do it by One artsy mama and secondly, how to turn it digital from Lauren. I'm doing mine today.

Color of the year

Last week Pantone announced Color of the year for 2016. This year it's actually two! Rose Quartz and Serenity, pale pastells (yes I like them very much.) Quartz did a very interesting article on the subject with a fun video including my favorite clip from The devil wears Prada.

The tools kids (people) need to succeed in life

I found this list from American Psychological Association on educating children on how to cope with life (especially now after the last month's tragic events over the world). I thought that these tools are equally important for adults who either never go to learn them or forget them from time to time. If you don't have the time to read the article, here's the list on what tools you need to succeed here in life:

Last but not least, a lil reminder that gratitude makes a whole lotta difference. How happy should we be to be able to wake up to a new week and just go for it?! Let's!

Ikea hackers bar cart DIY

A neat and beautifully decorated home does a lot for your feeling of zen (at least for me). I saw this quite lovely bar cart from Ikea hackers (yep, you can spend a lot of time on their website, just a kind warning). Getting a little creative helps you relax too!

Last but not least, an inspiring story about the man behind Fashionary, the must have sketch book for designers and buyers in the fashion industry.

How to create a color palette - tips from the expert

color_palette

In my concept class I have to create several color palettes, for my own brand and for the collections. I found this interesting link on WGSN (the trend bureau EVERYONE in the fash biz pays large amounts of money for the latest news in trends.) where Jane Boddy explains how she works with color palettes. She has 20 years of experience, lots of great free advice there.

Storage tips for the Studio

Either if you're crazy about crafts or need to have tons of glittery stuff for professional reasons like me (yay, job perk!) it's always nice to have your magic knick knacks in place, neat and tidy. Saw this useful tip about organizing your creative space at Apartment Therapy. Dreaming about a home office or studio like this!
