About new beginnings and little changes

The year 2017 is almost over and many of us, who are big supporters of new year resolutions, can finally draw their conclusions from the year. Did you reach your goals that you have set for the year? Can you count the year as a good one?

Actually, it does not really matter if you have completely fulfilled your intentions or not. The only important thing is that you always come closer to your dreams and try not to stop. How do they say? One should not compare with others, but only with himself, his younger version.

A new year is therefore often the opportunity to finish off old habits and take a small reboot. We always start our new year with a big home cleaning. But even a small change in decor can give you the feeling of a fresh start. One of our favourite things to give the home some new paint, is to hang stuff up on the walls. Whether you want to express your personality with the help of quotes, simple drawings or even photographs, or simply want to give your own home a more personal touch, posters are just perfect for that. Since both of us have made a lot of changes this year, in the end we were all the more pleased that Posterlounge wanted to help us change our apartments. The only assignment is to find a poster / canvas, or in Jasmine’s case an Alu Dibond (yes, that was new to us too, but it’s great because it’s super skinny, not too heavy and you do not need a frame) that matches our personalities:

Between university, work, the blog, my friends and my family, unfortunately, I find less and less time just for me. That’s why I’ve always tried to just hit the Stop button and browse in one of my favorite Najwa Zebian poetry books, or go hiking with my boyfriend somewhere in nature. So what would have been better than a “quote”, which sometimes gives you strength on stressful days and this beautiful bird?

This year I moved in with my boyfriend, so I could not choose the picture alone. (I would have probably chosen the picture “Bring Wine” – does a title suit me better? haha) Finally, we could agree on this motive: my boyfriend is happy because he is a big fan of True Detective and the double exposure reminds him of the TV show and I am happy because the photograph is really aesthetic and very inspiring.


If we have also inspired you to make a little change now, then we have good news for you: Together with Posterlounge we give away a € 50 voucher to one for you, so that you can get a bit creative too. If you want to participate, you just have to follow us on Instagram and leave a comment on our last picture. If you also leave a comment under this blog post you will be twice in the pot and thus have higher chances of winning. In the new year, we will then pick our winner amongst all participants. 😉

    Dieses Jahr habe ich mir mal nichts vorgenommen, da ich doch Recht zufrieden mit dem Großen und Ganzen bin *juhu-endlich*
    Die Bilder/Poster, die ihr euch ausgesucht habt sind wirklich wunderschön!
    Bei dem “True-Detective-Kompromiss” musste ich sofort schmunzeln und an meinen Schatzi denken 😉
    Einen guten Rutsch wünscht Dir

    Ich finde das Bilder in der Wohnung soooo viel ausmachen! Bin vor kurzem umgezogen und noch sind meine Wänder superleer. Mein Freund hat leider gar kein Händchen für sowas, sodass ich mir im neuen Jahr wohl alleine Gedanken darüber machen muss 😀
