All week has been super super busy. It feels like i haven’t looked like a normal personal for ages, since i just won’t get off my pajamas.

All week has been super super busy. It feels like i haven’t looked like a normal personal for ages, since i just won’t get off my pajamas. I’m not complaining work is doing great, more than 10 projects running at the same time, features and interviews. It’s that period, that i couldn’t be more excited! But lets be realistic, beyond my happiness, when lots of things are going on, i tend to be very nervous. I’m kinda a perfectionist, and cannot be in peace with myself if i haven’t completed all my projects. That’s when i can spend guiltless, some me time. But that’s not going to happen soon enough and the least i can do is keep my anxiety levels low. 

I wasn’t always a task lover, i always thought that everything i need to do, is in my mind. “That’s how you train your brain to remember more things” i used to say and yeah, that’s how i ended up forgetting most of the things i had to do. This week showed me how in control i can be of my tasks, and that planning is your best friend when you are completely drowning. I may be have a great amount of work to do, but as soon as i have everything planned at least i know when to start and when to end. And know that you are not forgetting anything
I’m not an expert on a which program to use for your tasks, just because i am new to this. Even though i have an app for literally everything when it came to planning my day, i preferred the traditional way. My dear hubby got me an amazing huge journal / calendar, which has a page for a day. Writing my to do lists, appointments and tasks makes it’s so much easier to stay organized, and when i write everything down it makes me remember them even easier. And no need to feel anxious all the time if you are forgetting something. The tasks that i don’t know if i will complete in a day are put on a post it, and will move from page to page. 
For those who aren’t so typo maniac like myself, i had tried lots of applications before i ended up to the calendar. To be honest, i was to lazy to write on my iphone and kept postponing writing down my tasks. But i did tried quite a few, like i said, i have an app for everything! 
Wunderlist, has to be the most organized, and beautiful of all. If i was using one, this had got to be it. You can have it on your iphone or android (it’s so pretty!) and you can have it on your computer as well and have all of them synced. And the best, it’s free! 
Any.Do is the one i have now on my iphone and use it once in a blue moon just because it’s simple and minimal. When i’m somewhere outside and need to remember something and i can’t stop and write it down on my journal, that’s where i will write it. You have to use it, it just couldn’t be more simple! It also can be downloaded on your computer and phone for free. 
aNote Was the very first i downloaded. It looks like a real journal which is kinda cool and has cute customizable tags and lots of other stuff.  But yet, it was too complicated for me at the time but it’s design worths every penny you pay ($3.99) and if you are looking for something to replace your calendar, that’s the one you should try! 

I’m really glad i had the chance to work on a new logo with a new client on a black and gold  base. It has to be   one of my favorite combinations ever. She came to me very organized and with a vision (nothing better to inspire a designer!) and the logo is coming… Read more »

I’m really glad i had the chance to work on a new logo with a new client on a black and gold  base. It has to be   one of my favorite combinations ever. She came to me very organized and with a vision (nothing better to inspire a designer!) and the logo is coming up nicely. It’s all about clean, minimal, friendly, personal and yes royal. Can’t wait to share it with you!

Saturday was the perfect day of a very tiring and busy week. I needed to rest very bad and i got even more than that. Seeing amazing places, nature, sun, fog, clouds, sea, and an amazing time with friends. Times like these i feel so blessed for the life i have, and the people i have around me. There is absolutely nothing i would want more than that. For the first time even, i don’t think of vacation on a fancy place. I just want to be here, with the people i love. 
When i was younger i dreamt about living in a beautiful place, being able to go on adventures, exploring, having great friends with me who make me feel myself and happy and a wonderful loving husband. I feel like i have completed a good 80% of everything i’ve dreamt for as a kid. The rest 20% is yet to come, and i’m in no hurry.

I’m digging my closet and my spring / summer clothes for some color! All the winter clothes are already put away, and finally i can see some colorful patterns when i search my -what-to-wear-today. Although it’s not that warm outside for a dress, a girl can dream! It was a day for a tee today,… Read more »

I’m digging my closet and my spring / summer clothes for some color! All the winter clothes are already put away, and finally i can see some colorful patterns when i search my -what-to-wear-today. Although it’s not that warm outside for a dress, a girl can dream! It was a day for a tee today, soon will be searching for swimwear as well! 

After the black / white / grey obsession i earned during this winter, and still having, it was too hard for me to change my nail polishes to something brighter! I’m just used to my blacks, pastels and beige. Red is my fanciest. I’m thinking of engaging these this summer. Black & white with color, greys with pastels and lots of whites.

The balance of the feminine and masculine elements, is what i’m working on this logo. Pastels and not too flashy pinks, to the contrast of grey and blacks. Freehand girly and simple fonts, watercolors and rough brushstrokes. This logo is a delightful challenge!
