Strawberry Iced Tea… & Bingo!

Strawberry Iced Tea… & Bingo!

I have a well-known and documented weakness for all things homemade iced teas. They’re good on all sorts of occasions, refreshing during the day, and I even like to serve them to guests as a mocktail. It took me a while, however, to start making iced teas with my MASTER.T tea machine. Always thought of...

Little House, Little Garden

Little House, Little Garden

They rightly say “teach them young”. And it’s also kind of my “Mama Mantra”, summed up. I like to really let the girls explore and learn in a play based, trial-and-error kinda way. So, as much as I love the city we live in (shoutout to our beautiful Zurich) and to explore the urban jungle,...

IKEA Bastelwagen Hack

IKEA Bastelwagen Hack

Oder: “Die Pinke Phase” meiner Tochter… Das innere Kind… Oder noch besser: das innere Mädchen. Oh, wie ich es liebe, Mama zu sein und mit und durch meine kleine Grosse all diese wunderbaren Kinder- und spezifisch Mädchensachen wiederzuerleben… Glitzer! Pink! Seifenblasen! Gold! Silber! Tutus! Rückchen! Funkeln! Sterne! Herzen! Regenbogen! Einhörner! Meerjungfrauen! Blümchen! Neon! Pom Poms!...

Rooftop Cinema

Rooftop Cinema

When you can’t go to the cinema (because Corona happened), then the cinema has to come to you. Right? During these crazy times where staying home is the new chic, well, you really have to be more creative than ever… Luckily, we have been so lucky to call this home with our – not too...

Woof! E’s Puppy Pawty & Tips

Woof! E’s Puppy Pawty & Tips

Throwing parties is one of my greatest pleasures in life. One of my only mottos I consistently stick to is: celebrate everything! Firm believer that every day should be a little party. As bigger bashes go, alas, I have to say that hubbie and I are not too fond of celebrating our own birthdays. I...

Winter Wonderland Arosa

Winter Wonderland Arosa

When you get the chance to visit one of the leading hotels in Switzerland, nestled in the most majestic of mountains surrounded by snowy peaks, with your toddler and mama in tow – you even postpone your Christmas preparations a bit to make it happen. I was a little sceptical at first if it was...

Waffles For The Table

Waffles For The Table

You know those types of people, who always order good stuff – pancakes, waffles or dessert – for the table? They’re my people. Simple logic: you want those waffles – and so does everybody else. They might just not be ready to admit it, or ready to indulge in so many calories, all by themselves....

E’s Tree

E’s Tree

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...

Advent, Advent…

Advent, Advent…

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...

My Mama (Tea) Moments

My Mama (Tea) Moments

(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...
