Glam up your Monday: Decor: Fresh Flowers!

Hey Lovelies!!!

I hope you all had an amazing weekend! Mine was so busy. My sister is in the process of moving and I helped her with cleaning and I also went to dinner.

It's a new week, so another Glam up your Monday. Something that is very important to get a good night sleep, to study, to relax,... is your environment. If your room/house is a mess you can't concentrate, you also have to surround yourself with the things you love and things that inspire you!

This week's decor idea is fresh flowers. It can immediately change the feel of your room. If I walk in a room with fresh flowers, I immediately feel so much happier, it also gives an instant glam and luxury factor to your room.  

But did you know flowers have a lot of benefits for your mental, physical and emotional health? Crazy right!

1. Flowers can give a boost to your mood: Flowers are major triggers of positive welfare emotions, it gives you a boost of happiness.

2. It has an impact on long-term moods such as a depression

3. A lot of flower extracts are used in medicines (and beauty products! Did you know rose is   great for sensitive skin!)

I don't know about you but I love having fresh flowers, especially roses or peonies. So go and get yourself your favorite flowers in you favorite color and put it somewhere in your house/room where you see it all the time. I love putting mine next to my bed (gives you an amazing boost when you wake up), on the dining table and in the living room.

My favorite flowers are rose and peonies (white, pink, soft pink) but I'm loving those typical spring flowers right now like tulips, lilies, crocuses, camellias, daffodils,...

If you are creative you can also make your own flower arrangement, which looks even more luxurious and chique! Check it out how to do that here:

What is your favorite flower or flowers?
Have a nice week!

  1. i'm definitely buying myself a bouquet of pink peonies this week if i can find them at one of the local flower shops! they're my favorite flower and i've been waiting all winter for them to be back in season :)

    1. Yes I know, It is so annoying that you can't get them all year around :( Instead I just have roses for all year around :)


  2. Getting a bouquet of flower would be nice! It can also be a treat for graduating. My favorite flower would be violets not only it's my favorite color, but it's been the 1st type of flower my bf surprised me with.

  3. I love this! I am going to go to the flower shop today to see what I can find. My absolute favorite flowers are tulips so hopefully I can get some nice ones.

    p.s I have no idea how I came across this blog but I am glad I did (: I just started blogging & would love it if you checked it out
