How To Make Killer Moodboards | Jackie O My
Image sources: 12, Pinterest.
     I love making mood boards. I first learned the ropes from reading DesignLoveFest; my understanding is that in the dawn of blogging, she loved to pair two images together and write about them. So adorably, refreshingly simple, I fell in love with her blog right then.

Mistakes I Made While Blogging Last Year

Mistakes I Made While Blogging Last Year | Jackie O My

     I spent forever trying to come up with the perfect intro to this post. Something inspiring, witty and down to earth to show how much I've grown creatively during my time writing. But honestly, I have no idea how to preface this article, and since the whole point of this post is transparency, it would be ridiculous not to admit that. So here's a quick rundown of the facts:

I've been blogging over 5 years, but Jackie O My is only two years old (and my longest running blog). I've been totally hands-on with my past blogs, and I've never been afraid to try new things or totally throw myself into a project. This has resulted in tons of trial and error. While I'm sure more "okay, that didn't work" moments will come after this, for the time being, I'm here to share some of the mistakes I've made so far.

How To Survive and Enjoy Long Winters With Hygge | Jackie O My

     I spent a few nights of this week huddled under blankets as the wind howled outside, my only source of power the crackly radio playing beside me. Here in Canada, while so many of us are ready for spring, winter is still going strong. But the focus of this post will be another chilly destination: Denmark.

Winter in Denmark sounds lovely. Snowy landscapes, warm fires, and traditional mugs of mulled wine aplenty. According to Meik Wiking in The Little Book Of Hygge, hygge is the ultimate goal of the season. "[It] will always be planned, thought of, and evaluated in relation to the concept of hygge." Are you dreaming of a peaceful Copenhagen-esque winter? Read on to find out how you can bring a little hygge warmth into your coldest season.

For Love & Lemons Spring Skivvies 2019 | Jackie O My

     Hands up: who loves pretty lingerie? I absolutely do, so how could I resist sharing For Love & Lemon's 2019 Spring Skivvies Campaign? I really appreciate the mix of sporty femininity here. Think sporty spice meets Cher from Clueless. Not to mention the dreamy Marie Antoinette-style bedroom decor. *swoon*.
