Favorite Brands | Ecru

ecru.jpgI saw this Kuwait-based brand on Instagram and since then I am a huge fan of it! Their products are not only beautiful and functional, but quite different (in a good way) from what we have seen on the Middle East’s market. A perfect mix of modern and tradition.

Go Green! ReUse! DIY Ideas

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend!
I did a huge research on the Internet and I found some good ideas how to turn something old and useless into something useful. I did my best to find easy-to-do and affordable ones. I personally got inspired and I think I might try some of them sometimes soon!
