Adding Prinku to Your Home this Season

Home & DIY
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.

  • Evelyn’s looking at me like... “really I’m stuck with you all the time now 🤷🏼‍♀️” and I’m like, “ yah girl.. triple chin and all 🤣😂” but seriously... When we hopped into the car today Evelyn declared, “ YESSS MOMMY! We go pick up Sophie and Ezzie now!! Yayyyyy!” Poor thing had four more hours till it was really time.

Thanks for the snap @sugarplumlaurel | Stroller @diono
  • Getting new frames soon and want to hear what you all think. I picked out my top three styles and want to put it to a vote. Comment below which pair you like the best (swipe left to see all three)

I’m sharing all the details about my recent experience at @irisvisualgroup on the blog. Talking about what it was like going in with the girls, what age you should first bring your kids and what I’m going to start using during soccer games. Can you believe I have been playing half blind? Link in bio ( there's also more images of the three styles if you want to see before you vote). #ad #irisvisualgroup
  • Tomorrow starts the first full week of kindergarten for that confident girl on the right. I didn’t realize how emotional I was about the whole thing, until her first full day and I was basically a big giant mess. Here’s to hoping I can hold it together.
  • Overwhelmed by the number of you that responded to my stories today. Parenting is hard. Some days so much harder than others. The good thing is, we don’t have to do it alone. When we open up and share (like I did this morning to someone I’ve only met a few times) we give ourselves an opportunity to learn and grow. My hope for all of you is that through your journey, you constantly seek, grow and share. It makes a difference.
  • Drove out to @centralcitysurrey tonight with this girl. Lots of laughs as we tried on our five looks for this Friday’s fashion show! Say what!?
•
There’s going to be six of us walking the runway from 12:00 - 1:30 PM, plus tons of other activities happening right by the food court ($500 mall giveaway draw, selfie station, beauty demos and more) — come on out and cheer us on

  • I made simple syrup for the first time at home and two things:
1. DANG that's good!
2. It's WAYYYY easier then I anticipated
•
After cruising a handful of different simple syrup recipes online I combined a few that I thought would work, reduced the sugar and substituted cream of tartar for lemon juice. For some reason I never like to follow the directions the first time and always like to try out my own... it doesn't always work out, but this time it sure did!! You can see more of the steps in my stories for how to make your own simple syrup and sparkling water using the new @sodastreamcanada FIZZI One Touch at home. I always love when things turn out easier than expected! Does anyone want the full recipe on the blog?
