Splish, Splash! Bath Time Fun

Splish, Splash! Bath Time Fun

Last year when we moved into our new “forever” home (only 500 m away from our last place, but more spacious and with a rooftop terrace), my heart was a bit heavy… I love a good home makeover – and who doesn’t, right? So many cute corners to decorate and reinvent – but also so many...

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!...

Spätzle In A Hurry

Spätzle In A Hurry

Spätzle, Spätzli, Chässpätzli, Chnöpfli, Knöpfle, Spatzen… or whatever you might call them. They’re basically a foodie’s dreams (plural) come true. For those who do not know what I’m talking about – “Spätzle who?” – here’s a funny description I found: “a specialty from Southern Germany, made by boiling small lumps of dough made from flour...

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...

Ode to “Mimi” (Mama Milk) – Part I

Ode to “Mimi” (Mama Milk) – Part I

Not that we need a euphemism for “breastfeeding”. But E calling her beloved mama milk “Mimi”, in her raspy-but-soft voice, is the cutest thing ever, really. And right upfront – because I can literally hear you all think “but… how oooold is E again…?” when I write about “breastfeeding: E ist currently 18 months plus...

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...

Giant Cupcake (1st Bday Cake Smash Session)

Giant Cupcake (1st Bday Cake Smash Session)

So our friends’ daughter and C’s god-daughter turned one last weekend. Cue: Smash The Cake! I mean, come one, you can’t be a professional Pinner and NOT have a Smash The Cake Session, right? So ofc I volunteered (read: forced everyone to be allowed) to bring a sweet little cake entirely dedicated to the little lady,...

Easter Fried Egg Pavlova

Easter Fried Egg Pavlova

If you’ve been a long time reader, you probably know I’m all about the cheesy things (both, literally and non-literally) and definitely all about the cute foods. Anything cute, dressed up, dolled up, decorated, whimsy, pink, unicorn-y… yeah, I’m sold. Point in case: this easter pavlova in disguise, pretending to be a simple fried egg....

Beer Bread (No-Knead)

Beer Bread (No-Knead)

Time is running so fast… I can’t believe my little munchkin is almost 2 months old. And that this means that I’ve been at home for almost two months. The two best months of my life so far. As a mom (and a housewife, admittedly) – the  best job in the world. Even if it...

Avocado Rose (on Toast)

Avocado Rose (on Toast)

Whenever I see a good DIY project – which happens a lot when you’re a Pinterest addict, like me – I think to myself: “oh, I want to try this!”. I will bookmark it lovingly and archive it under my crafts boards. But then, the likelyhood and truth is I’ll probably never start anything, really....
