Hey there, thank you for stopping by! I’m Inez, a twenty-two-year-old student currently living in Amsterdam, but not for long. I will be leaving this amazing city in a few months after calling it my home for the last three years. My new home? For at least the upcoming year, I will be spending my time in Sweden’s capital, Stockholm. The reason for my move is school, Stockholm School of Economics to be specific. After much preparation, test-taking, Spanish-learning, and an assessment, I got accepted to the most amazing Master program: The MSc in International Business / CEMS MIM.
I’ve wanted to start a blog for quite a while now, but I never really did. The biggest reason for this is the fact that I wanted it to be perfect from the beginning, which is something I realize is impossible. Also, I needed something to write about that not only I would find interesting, but others too. I figured that moving to a different country where I don’t know anyone or anything should do the trick. So, after a few months of making my website look nice, developing some basic Photoshop skills and doing some writing, I decided now was the right time.
So, here it is, The Lovely Notebook. With this blog I want to share the happy and sad moments I have while making Stockholm my home, the adventures I go on and maybe some secret spots you have to visit when in Stockholm. I guess it’s like a diary, only it’s not just for me to read. It’s a way of keeping everyone at home informed on how I’m doing, sharing my experiences and documenting the memories I want to keep forever. I hope you’ll follow along.
I also love to spend some time creating cute greeting card and posters, some of which you can buy in the little shop I added to the website. A pretty good way to finance my future addiction to cinnamon buns, if you ask me. Hopefully you’ll find something pretty!
