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...

Love & Light

Love & Light

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...

Bloem for your Home

Bloem for your Home

“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...

Updating E’s Kitchen

Updating E’s Kitchen

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...

Provence, 2018

Provence, 2018

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...
