5 Dancing in the Rain GIFs to make you look forward to Fall

Summer is slowly but surely coming to an end. Vacation time is over. Back to school. Back to work. Back to wherever is not the beach. Back to not being able to park on my street because all the families with kids are back in town.

Now, instead of crying about it, I want us to remember all the amazing things that come with the late summer, early fall period. Nights are cooling down, so those of us that live in hot countries and don’t have AC will finally be able to sleep again. Your plants have a higher chance of surviving if you forget to water them for a week. You can take your dog out at noon without fear that his paws will burn to crisps on the asphalt.

And then, there is the rain. Rain for days. Rain that will bring back the green to our gardens and parks. I love the rain, and since it’s a big part of the coming season (at least in my part of the world), I’ve put together this list of awesome dancing in the rain GIFS to get even more excited about it.

How to create your own Urban Jungle

Using plants to turn your flat into an urban jungle can really liven up your living space. Not only do plants filter the air, they also bring a great contrast to the concrete, brick and paint. An urban jungle gives you a place to escape to and recharge from the grind and grime of the city.

But how do you go about it? As a person who has involuntarily killed many plants in her life, I can tell you that it’s not just about finding some pretty plants and putting them on your window sill.

15 Beautiful Sunrise Images To Brighten Up Your Day

Most people say that sunsets are the most beautiful time of the day. But to be honest, I’ve always been more of a sunrise kinda girl.

Sunrise is the most peaceful moment of the day. No matter if you’re still awake after partying (or studying) all night, or you’ve just gotten up because you have some important thing today. Most of the rest of the world is still asleep, but you’re awake.

The birds are starting to sing and the first light appears over roofs of the buildings. It’s a moment of promise because the day is still undefined. It could be the most amazing day of your life, full of adventure and discovery… or it could be the day you finally get to catch up on some sleep.

10 Awesome Pieces of Nature-Themed Street Art

Street art, loved by many, misunderstood by more. Living in a big city means we’re constantly surrounded by endless amounts of grey – grey asphalt, grey concrete, people in grey suits, grey rainy skies.

Street art, whether in the form of graffitis or the increasingly popular yarn bombing, is a great way for artists to break through the grey and add some much-needed colour to our city landscapes.
