Adding Sparks of Joy
A childhood friend, mother of 3 & another creative thinker has recently packed up her parents house of 30 years in Dubai, helping them to realise their dream of living half way across the world in Canada. She looked into how best to do this & discovered Marie Kondo
's philosophy on the magic of tidying & creating a home environment that spark's joy. A little hesitant but equally quite excited, she went around the house holding each object to decide whether it sparked joy. If it didn't create joy or wasn't irrefutably necessary is was not going with her parents across the atlantic.
What a wonderful thought to only surround yourself with the absolutely necessary & the joyous. How lovely to bring this idea to other areas of our lives by choosing to focus on more of the activities in our week that creative positive vibes & ultimately leave us feeling good.
This resonated with us at OAK as our coming soon SS16 collection is inspired by sunny vibes.
We enjoy designing a life that creates happiness & attracts success. We continue to follow mantras that motivate & inspire us.
Marie's books & eye-opening philosophy have inspired us to add more joy into everyday. Whether we de-clutter our wardrobes & only buy truly joyous spring summer pieces that we will truly treasure, take 5 mins extra in the morning to make a delicious smoothie or even arrange a monthly date with a friend who has the same guilty pleasure movie taste. Whichever sparks of joy we choose, we have a feeling 2016 is going to be a sunny year!
