YES, a brand new journal (I’ll write about that tomorrow), and a brand new assortment…

However first, the house line! Wow! I’m SO joyful to report that I’ve my very own assortment at DEPOT, which has an internet store and 500 shops in Germany, Switzerland and Austria with their flagship retailer in Frankfurt. Actually, they threw an enormous get together there for me not too long ago and it was superb! We had a make-your-own wreath class, a dwell band, catering with yummy drinks and snacks, and large “Holly Baggage” with a lot of goodies from my assortment inside, together with a replica of my new journal. I additionally gave a presentation. I used to be capable of meet some incredible and galvanizing women and men too – followers nonetheless in faculty, after which one among my followers got here who’s 85-years-old and he wished a selfie with me, together with his flip cellphone from the 1990’s. It was the cutest second ever, I wished to cry. This stuff contact me a lot about in-person meet-ups – the folks! It’s all the time the folks that make me the happiest and really feel essentially the most pleasure from my work on the finish of the day. Who can I influence in a constructive means? Who can I help? Who can I give some happiness to? What can I do with my life to make others really feel good at residence?


Designing collections for the house looks like the following step for me in my profession, one among many subsequent steps I’ve taken this yr and can take within the years to come back. I need to actually degree up now and present my expertise and develop and problem myself. I additionally need to pave the way in which for others. It’s been this manner my complete life – others are scared to take dangers however I’m a trailblazer – I am going for it with or with out worry – I don’t care! After which others see this and suppose, “Hmmmm she DID it, possibly I CAN TOO!” after which others observe my lead. I like being the one to guide as a result of I used to be born with the character for it – and I imagine in some ways this character of desirous to take dangers and pave the way in which is my “present” so I’ve to do one thing constructive with it. All of us have a present, some have a number of, however are you utilizing yours? Are you aware what yours are? As soon as you actually hone in on what makes you YOU and what are your presents in life, you can begin to develop your self and your small business really in essentially the most genuine means. Then Mondays by no means really feel like Mondays and work by no means looks like work.

Right here in Germany, I’m positively a trailblazer in my trade. I don’t get it proper all the time and fail like everybody does, it’s human, however I additionally don’t cease when I’ve one thing that I need or really feel I ought to strive. I don’t even care if I’m not “good” at it, I simply need to attempt to be taught as I am going, sharpening my abilities, turning into higher. And in the long run, I really like the method of evolving, studying and difficult myself. Doesn’t that gas everybody although? All of us like to be taught and develop and be challenged but a lot of folks let worry of failure maintain them again. Please don’t try this, promise me, change this mind-set. Begin to change the way in which you have a look at worry. Begin to understand that not making an attempt is failure. Making an attempt IS success whatever the consequence, as a result of the result is out of our management. As soon as we create or do one thing and ship it into the world, we have to be taught to LET GO and see what turns into of it. However we’re a hit merely for creating it and sending it on the market.

It’s like having a baby. We create it, we increase the kid, we ship them off to highschool, then faculty, then life. In the event that they fail later or succeed, that’s finally out of our management. We do our greatest. Careers and work are very a lot the identical. Nothing is a certain factor. Every part is a danger. Going out in your automotive on the freeway is a danger, so is flying, so is practice journey. However you do it as a result of it’s obligatory. If you wish to get wherever, it’s essential to use buses and vehicles and streets and planes to do this. Identical along with your profession, if you wish to get wherever it’s important to simply do issues that put you in danger. However belief me, it will get simpler after awhile. It’s like having a worry of flying but you will have household on the opposite facet of the world. You begin to lose your worry the extra you get on the airplane and take these journeys. Additionally, the extra you begin to suppose in another way about air journey. Thoughts over physique/actions, all the time.


However again to my DEPOT assortment. I’m the primary interiors blogger/influencer in German-speaking Europe to have a set in a retailer, and I’m so proud and enthusiastic about this second, I typically can’t imagine it! It’s superb to have this opportunity, to unfold the great vibes round and present merchandise and issues that I really like and personal and use in my own residence. I’ve already heard of different corporations now working with bloggers on collections right here, so now some actually fascinating issues can occur for others in my discipline too, and I really like this. I need everybody to do what they’re meant to do, however most significantly, what’s most genuine to them and the place their expertise lies.
