about enchanting notions

In late November 2015, I created enchanting notions in order to realize my passion about the written word. Since then, it has grown to be this great place of creativity and fun. A home for sweet little stories and inspiring notions. I like to refer to enchanting notions as my columns, me being the columnist. “Columnist” has a vintage style to it, it makes you think of words being thoroughly put together in a piece, creating art. With my columns, I intend to do this exact thing. Sometimes essays, many times poems, plenty of yoga content, even recipes and my actor’s guide “acting 101” can be found here. Have a look around and please feel free to send me a message in case you’d like to share a thought or two 🙂


about the columnist: Selvin Tatli

Who is the lady behind “your tiny woman in a giant world”, you ask? That would be me, Selvin Tatli, some call me Selly, please do so too if you like. When I am not travelling, I mostly write from my hometown Cologne, Germany. A little quick-info about myself:

Year of birth? 1991 – a 90ies girl through and through.

Favorite mantra? “Be wild & feel free”! I believe in doing what you love, living a vivid and healthy life and caring for our beloved Mother Nature and the people who are dear to you.

Coffee or tea? Coffee. Forever and always.

Morning person or night owl? Morning person. I have great appreciation for the beauty of the night sky though. 🙂

Favorite dessert? Chocolate Chip Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies. No question.

If there is anything you’d like to tell or ask me, feel free to write me an e-mail: enchantingnotions@gmail.com

Grab a cup of freshly brewed coffee, lean back and enjoy my enchanting notions xo
