blossoming spring hues

3:24 PM

My little desk set up with my favorite things of this month: a Chanel red lip, velvet choker, Parisian fragrance, and dainty rings.
As the air softly and sensibly fills its chilling air with warmth, as the breezes begin to dance yet again, and as the sweet, tangible scents of daffodils and tulips fill our hearts with wonder, we slowly move into the lush time of spring. I adore winter (as you would know from my blog the past few months) but there is something so enchanting that overcomes the world during spring time that I am simply overjoyed at the thought of it. So today I thought I would share with you moments from the past week or so when I drew my dainty, lace curtains open to see a fading winter and a blossoming sunshine. Hope you enjoy -->
I can never get enough of beautiful sunlight filling my bedroom with the most wonderful sensation of joy and fulfillment.
My vintage spring time book bag on film along with some other necessities & my lovely lace curtains.
From yesterday morning, lying in bed with a lovely classic novel to keep me dreaming.

And that's it! I really hope you liked my post and are share my excitement in the changing of seasons. Hope you are having a lovely day and I'll see you soon. With love, Viktoria Anderson.

february inspirations

7:12 PM

Hellooo! Lately, I have felt so inspired by everything around me so I thought I would write up a cheeky little post talking about it. The air is becoming warmer, the sun is setting later, and fresh lavender has returned to farmers markets. The transition between seasons is always delightful because so many things change alongside the weather. 


A warm night spent alone outside- nothing but you, the air, and the serenity of the music flowing from the record player.
The lavender blossoms once again as you sip black coffee on the porch; vintage lights fill the air with an iridescent ambient glow. 

Lately, I just feel so inspired by everything around me. Sure, life is busy as always, but I think it's equally important to notice the things around us that fill our lives with subtle joys. For me, those things tend to be writing & journals, old music, sweet flowers, parisian inspiration, and anything vintage (in case you couldn't already tell). I've also been obsessed with developing my closet and fashion inspirations into a reality. Clutter is something I absolutely cannot stand, so in contrast, a neat and lovely collection of few but memorable stable pieces of clothing is all a girl (like me) really needs. 
Sat in her bronze-legged bath, she writes a letter of heart-warming words to her lover; the scent of roses fill the room and a burning candle sits on the Victorian table in the corner.
Well, that's it! I hope you enjoyed this little post of some of the lovely things that inspire my day to day life lately because I definitely loved writing it. Let me know what you think and what posts you would like to see next. See ya next time,
Viktoria. x

bath

bed of roses: comfort & tranquility

7:54 PM


 Happy Sunday, everyone! Okay so I know I've been amiss but only because I failed to escape the terrible illness going around. So now that I am healthy again, I am back & feeling very inspired. As winter is slowly drifting out of our grip, I think it's most important to make use of what remains of it. This past week it's been very dreary and rainy, making inside awfully homey and comforting. Enjoy the bits and pieces from my week that I captured on my little camera. xx
I. warm, candlelit baths



The chilly weather outside plus the groggy feeling of being ill, made me crave a lovely bath like this one every night. Golden flames, Jane Austen, and building water than surges in a pleasing way on your skin-

II. rose + salts

Nobody does skincare and body luxuries like the French (although the French win in many various things, let's be honest here here). If you didn't know the rose fragrances are my favorite and also the way to my heart; the flowers themselves also happen to have a special place in my heart.

III. la musique
Alas, what is a bath without tranquility of classical music? Here are just a few of my loves..
- Romanze for Cello and Orchestra, Johann Strauss Jr.
- Nocturne No. 2 in E Flat Major, Frederic Chopin
- Le Onde, Ludovico Einaudi
- Concerto in D Minor, Johann Sebastian Bach
- Kiss the Rain, Yiruma
- The Nutcracker Op. 71 Act 2 No.14, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky 

IV. soft, enchanting beside musings


The allurement of capturing soft, exquisite moments on film is something I shall never take for granted. And nothing is better to photograph than shining beams of sun light pouring in through the window, casting endless grey shadows on the ruffled sheets of my mahogany bed..

I hope these photos inspired you to take a day for yourself and to make it the best one yet. You don't realize till you do it, how a day filled with small enchantments can bring you such immense joy. See you next time with another post. With love, Viktoria. x

january

sounds of january

6:49 PM

As we near the end of the first month of the new year, I thought I would share with you my most beloved tunes and songs of January. For me, this month should be filled with soft, crisp, wintery melodies. These songs are so simplistic yet perfectly mirror the frosty weather, burning firewood, and chai tea lattes from the cafe on the corner. Hope you enjoy -->

I. reading Tennyson by firelight
My lovely fireplace that can make a room the most romantic place in the whole damn world. 
For nights spent by the fire reading old english poets' work; Billie Holiday playing on an old vintage vinyl. 
Tracks:
- Alright, Keaton Hensen
  - One Of Us Cannot Be Wrong, Gregory Alan Isakov
- Long Lost Century, The Woodlands 
- Début, Mélanie Laurent 
- The Swan, Peter Breiner 


II. teakwood & tobacco
Burning flames, soothing bath salts, & a sprig of pine.
The musky scent of pine combined with the warm aroma of an extinguished candle fill your living room while you press your nose against the glass and gaze out at the lulling rain.


Tracks: 
The Christmas Waltz, Tony Bennett 
- Sleep On The Floor, The Lumineers 
- Words, Gregory Alan Isakov 
- Cold Cold Heart, Tony Bennett 
The Wisp Sings, Winter Aid



III. warm kisses 
My dreamy-looking bedroom on a foggy morning this past week at 6am.
Messy bed sheets, the old crackle of a record player, sentimental thoughts, & memories of the last time you saw him lingering in your mind. 
Tracks: 
A Winter Romance, Dean Martin
- Love is Only a Heartbeat Away, Jamie T.
- La Vie en Rose, Daniela Andrade 
- Solitude, Billie Holiday
- Botanical Romance, Isobel Anderson
