Adding Prinku to Your Home this Season

HOME DECOR
5

Love at first sight is the only way to really describe how I feel about the style of Olga Prinku. I was first introduced to Olga when she sent me a very kind email a couple months back asking me about my blog and possibly collaborating. I knew that I was going to be very busy close to the holidays and didn’t want to commit to something (like cleaning, styling, decorating my home) all before the big horrah of the holidays. When I asked Olga if she wanted to style her products in her own home to share with me I was beyond impressed with the outcome.

I think that we are a lot alike, Olga and I, we are both graphic designers and very much enjoy interior design (though she just might be a whole lot more talented then me in that area). Just because I enjoy it doesn’t mean that my home looks like this (ha!). A couple years ago Olga tried to draw from her experience working on layouts for a home styling magazine, while she renovated her own home.

Living in Northern England, Olga took a career break just after she had her little boy, this is when she learned how to crochet and knit. Now that her son is starting school, Olga is seeing if she can turn her craft making into a business. With a passion for working with wool and an incredible creative eye Olga has turned her creations into the most gorgeous home decor items for the holidays.

I’m a trained graphic designer and I used to work on layouts for a home styling magazine. I tried to draw some tips from that experience when my husband and I renovated an old house over the last couple of years, in a little village in northern England. I took a career break from graphic design when we had our little boy, and that’s when I learned how to crochet and knit. Now that he’s starting school, I’m seeing if I can turn my craft making into a business. I especially enjoy working with wool – the chunkier the better! I love to fill the house with tactile, bright-coloured goodies.

  • A few months ago when I got my wisdom teeth removed it put me in a work out rut. I felt super unmotivated and just blah. Really, mostly just felt sorry for myself. Sounds silly, maybe. But I was thinking about it recently and how that’s kind of continued to linger to the last couple months. I weighed myself the other day (we don’t own a scale so I don’t weigh myself often) and that was a bit of a kick in the butt, I realized that yes I wasn’t feeling good about myself, yes I’ve gained a decent amount of weight, and yes that aligns with the less positive thinking, less motivation and large lacking of exercise.

I feel funny writing this out but I think it’s important to talk about. I shared the times I’ve felt motivation, excited and energized to get to the gym, attend a workout or yoga class, but I also want to share that things happen.

We can have good days, good months, even good years but then something might happen that changes the course of our daily routine.

I don’t think I’ve failed, I’ve just lost track of the healthier lifestyle that was making me feel noticeably better. So here I am writing things out, to hopefully connect with you all on a level of understanding.

Maybe you are feeling the blah. Uninspired, low energy and making excuses for yourself. Here’s my little motivation to say, nothing changes unless you do. If you want change BE THE CHANGE.

At least that’s what I’ve been telling myself on repeat this week, in hopes to snap out of it.

  • It’s been six years since we lost our good friend, to me he was very much like a brother. Genuine, caring, funny, and such a family guy. This weekend we took time to remember. My heart feels heavy, I’ve never been good with words during times of grief but this weekend encouraged me that lots of words aren’t always needed. Our actions and the intentional moments mean so much. #domliveson
  • He makes me smile, the real full mouth all the teeth smile.

  • It's a crazy thing what can happen when you start doing the things you love but also might scare you. I've been creating content on this space for five years as this past year has presented some of the most incredible opportunities. This latest one with @coquitlamcentre has been so fun! Excited to share that I am their next and final 'Girl In Focus' -- head over to their feed to see the first video that was created.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Also, sending a big kiss out there for all of you, for being encouraging, inspiring and simply for just being you. If there's something on your heart that you have been wanting to start, but you feel like you don't know how.. maybe you are scared.. maybe you are worried of judgement. Trust me, it's worth putting all that aside and just trying. Just starting. Because in all honesty, starting is always the hardest part.⁠⠀

PS my outfit is from @rw_co, shoes @callitspring at @coquitlamcentre — I couldn’t leave without them! #girlinfocus #workingit #stylebyCQC
  • Who snacks more, you or the kids?
.
I used to think it was the kids, but since getting Invisalign I've realized more and more how much I love snacking, as I am willing to take my liners in and out every time. #worthit

A new snack I've been trying out from @patiencefruitco are their Active Blends, my favourite blend being the Seasalt & Pepper. Check out my stories to see all three flavours. *sponsored #patiencefruitco
