Book Recommendation


Marie Kondo's 'The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up' was a surprisingly impactful read. Being creatives we rely on finding that ever so elusive spark of inspiration.

This book made me rethink my 'strategy' of finding that inspiration. Through her famed 'KonMari' method of tidying up, you will create a space where you will automatically feel full of 'joy'.

This book has been a pretty big inspiration for me, not only in the way I de-clutter my space but also the way that I think about my own projects and creativity in general.

'Tis the holiday season and if you are looking, this book will make an incredible gift.
