2017 is the year of coding for me! Ready to tackle the wonderful world of programming. Most of you have heard of HTML and maybe of CSS, but what are those languages anyway? What can you do with these different programming languages and when are they used? Well, let me give you some background info on some common and well-known programming languages and a few examples of what they are used for. Let’s start at the beginning.

Running a blog and multiple social media accounts can be a big task. The planning that goes into it is often underestimated. Most social media channels have multiple options with regards to scheduling posts and posting automatically. Except for Instagram.

Not only can you promote your new blogposts, you can also give people a sneek peak behind the scenes using stories. So how can you create an Instagram theme that represents your blog?

One of my guilty pleasures on Instagram is looking at accounts run by interior decorators. I daydream about having one of those beautifully designed homes where all the furniture matches and walls have unusual colors. Scrolling through these feeds, I wondered what the role of technology in interior design is nowadays. We are all aware of the advanced technology in the beauty and fashion industry. Charlotte Tilbury just launched her magic mirrors in her store for trying out different make up looks in augmented reality in London. And I can’t imagine there aren’t similar tools and cool gadgets available for…
