Happy Roast Beef (Sous Vide)

By | From my kitchen, Savoury | No Comments

For my long-time readers: you know how I’m not big on meat, yes? Some even say “she only does desserts and vegs”, ahaha. And I admit, it’s not entirely wrong..! I like to make a bird for Thanksgiving though (which I tooootally missed this year, ugh! Setting a mental reminder for next November, not to forget the turkey shenanigans) or…

E’s Tree

By | Interior, Mamalife, Things we love, Various | No Comments

Christmas is a good occasion to go overboard with kitsch… Nothing better to get me into this “grownup” sensation of Christmas than some twinkling lights, glitter, candles, santas, lovely smells and quirky ornaments. I have been collecting vintage ornaments forever (as evidenced here several times, year after year) and have dreamed of creating a tree for my child one day,…

(Festive) Apéro

By | From my kitchen, Savoury | No Comments

Do you remember the famous “Täschler” from Betty Bossi? I remember it clearly as an element of my childhood, right up there with the likes of Nintendo, the walkman and Double Dip. The Täschler was maybe the most prominent, helpful little household gadget of the nineties. Mamas all over the country would use it to help them transfer a dull…

I remember vividly, how much effort my mama used to put into curating a beautiful advent calendar for me, every Christmas, for almost 20 years. Every year was a different set-up. Once there was a white painted tree (a proper tree, sans leaves) hanging atop my bed, strewn with twinkling lights and 24 little boxes with treasures inside. Once there…

By | Life & style, Things we love | No Comments

(AD – and what SPECIAL.T by Nestlé has to do with #mamalife) The biggest challenge about being a mama for me is, simply: time for myself. Between spending time with the toddler, work, taking care of the home, laundry… you get it, there is often no more time for just “me”. Mamalife taught me that I can go a long…

Love & Light

By | DIY, Mamalife | No Comments

Winter time childhood magic. What ingredients are your childhood winter memories made of? Mine for sure include: candle light, heavenly baking smells from Mami’s cookie sessions filling the house, oranges, clementines and cinnamon included in every meal, the Samichlaus visiting at home, writing wish lists to Santa, the twinkling lights and the tree, and of course thematic parades, Samichlausumzug oder…

Bloem for your Home

By | Flowers, Interior, Life & style, Things we love | 2 Comments

“I must have flowers, always and always”. Okay, famous words not mine, but still exactly my sentiment. I can live without five star menus (if you pass me just the dessert, please?), fancy make up and jewellery. But I can’t live without flowers. If I had to save drastically (and this won’t turn into a savings recommendation post, promise) –…

Autumnal Checklist

By | Explore, Mamalife, Things we love | No Comments

With every new season I am accutely aware how time flies. E will be two (as in: years old!) in December. And although the days are long, the years really are so very short. Time flies even more with kids. So I’m making an effort to always live in the now and celebrate everyday. Make every day special for E….
