A Small Space And Some Pretty Little Things

People who come to UAE for work would probably have shifted accommodation minimum 3 times depending on how long the contract is or in my case for an indefinite amount of time.

Those who are blessed with a good salary package also gets a good crib on top of that; some will have to allot part of their income to renting  a flat and most survive by sharing space (housemates/ roommates).

Being that I moved into a new space  recently,  it was in my mind to already plan the essentials. Calculating every move.  Which items I should take with me and which are the ones to go for storage.

It is a  3 x 3 meter room— what could fit in it?


These were my concerns:
Where my bed should be? Feng Shui much…. Do I need a bed?

Where to put my clothes in?  Do I need a closet?

Is there space for toiletries?

What about my shoes?

I started with a rug.  A smart purchase I believe because it was on sale, 50% off and on top of that it was the last piece- I asked the store manager to give me another 10%.


Then I found this charming and somewhat unusually fashioned sofa bed on Dubizzle for 300 Dirhams ($82).


This is when it dawned on me—i need pillows.  Lots of them.


It’s kind of like a therapy; seeing an empty space with infinite possibilities, no matter what the size and then turning that space into something that can become home.

It has been almost a week now.  I am adding little pieces every day.  Most are my old stuff; some gifted.

And if there’s one thing I really enjoyed, those are the  cheap buys from Daiso, Tchibo and Dragon Mart. I was on a mission and I can say I came out swinging.


Now I have to rest my soul as I begin to settle in because yeah my room has reached it’s limits.

 

“Winter Is Coming”

Scheduled to premier on March 31, 2013, Game of Thrones season 3 is quite a long wait but definitely worth it I am certain.  While waiting  I am keen on experimenting with the following projects:

1. Crochet my way around- do some really nice pieces and sell it online

2. Bling it on- I have a good source for chic fashion accessories that I want to sell online

3. Comfy wedges- bought a few samples of the most comfortable wedges straight from the factory and yes I want to sell them online

4. For the not so skinny- just made a good deal with an importer who is willing to supply trendy loose clothes that I can sell online

Think..think…….anyways, yes “winter is coming” and I just finished this snood for my daughter Rain.  She loves the color blue and the yarn ball I got has all shades. =)
