My Mama (Tea) Moments

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) –…

Updating E’s Kitchen

By | DIY, Interior, Play, Things we love | No Comments

Since we got home from France, we made some minor tweaks to E’s play kitchen (see former version here). Mainly because we now also have a shop (haha, so the unfriendly takeover of the living space continues). I like that the kitchen now isn’t as stuffed anymore. Also added some french straw baskets and a tiny vintage wooden stool. For…

Provence, 2018

By | Life & style, Mamalife, Travel | No Comments

One month away as a family. Away from home, away from work, away from old habits and ruts. Not that we needed an escape from our everyday life as it is. But a change of scenery air is still good, every now and then. To give you new perspectives, inspire, intensify the family bonds. To unwind, reset and recharge. We…

E’s Little Shop

By | DIY, Play | No Comments

After E’s kitchen, you might wonder what was our next project. Well, a toy shop, there you go. We bought a simple wooden shop, painted it white (with some gold details) and added all the wooden goodies I collected over the last months. It’s a big hit and played with daily. E sells me cakes and sausages, goes shopping with…

E’s Big Birl Room (Updated)

By | Interior, Mamalife | No Comments

E isn’t a baby anymore. A truth I occasionally have a hard time facing… But then again, life with her is good, everyday, and every second of the day. Being a toddler mama is even better than being a baby mama, actually (and that’s coming from me, who loooved baby bliss and never figured I could enjoy being a mama…

Easter Basket for Young & Old

By | DIY, Life & style, Mamalife, Play | 2 Comments

Even before mamahood, gift giving was kind of my biggest hobby. And nowadays with baby (pardon me, toddler of course) I’m kind of in non-stop gift giving frenzy…! The explanation being: little one simply „needs“ so much stuff… From everyday basic clothes to functional wear like rain boots to books, toys, tablewear and snack boxes… Endless. With a toddler, shopping…

E’s Kitchen

By | DIY, Life & style, Mamalife, Play, Various | One Comment

Hi folks, I’m back, and hasn’t it been ages, again… Sure couldn’t have planned for a better return than this, though. Having a toddler means getting to indulge in things that we, as grown-ups, tend to forget to enjoy. Immersing ourselves in play, simple, infinite play. I never thought I was going to be the mama who fills the home…
