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

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!...

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...

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...

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...

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...

E’s Little Shop

E’s Little Shop

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...

Easter Basket for Young & Old

Easter Basket for Young & Old

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…...

E’s Kitchen

E’s Kitchen

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...
