Poland

It’s Throwback Thursday! And I’m taking a look back at the first time I went to Poland with Niko in 2012. We’ve changed so much… I can’t believe how long my hair was back then 😮 Anyway, my grandparents live in Poland and I’ve been visiting every year in summer ever since I was born. […]

Oh Rainy Day

It’s been a very rainy day, and even though I feel a bit more energetic than during the “real” wintertime, I still could use a little pick-me-up. On days like this I like to stay inside, cuddle up on the sofa with a nice cup of hot soup. What can I say, I like it […]

Failure < Determination

  I’ve been applying for jobs lately to find an internship and there is just a lot of failure involved. Somehow being rejected can cause you to feel like you’re less than others, to a degree where you ask yourself if it’s still worth all the effort. And “NO” isn’t the worst rejection you can […]

Peanut butter Smoothie

  Hi guys! My oats-recipe for today is going to be a smoothie. I had not expected it to be as delicious as it turned out, because I was a bit unsure about the peanut butter. It was so wrong of me to think that way! I loved it and it is really easy to […]

Bed

A bedroom for Valentine’s

No real Valentine’s date for us! We always celebrate the Birthday of Niko’s dad on the 14th. But this year is kind of special. We only just finished painting our bedroom and last week Niko moved our bed and hung up a lamp. We stayed at my mom’s the entire week so he had enough […]

Valentine’s Breakfast

If you’re looking for a simple way to surprise your loved ones for valentine’s day, you’re always safe with a nice breakfast. A classic yet tasty omelette with heart shaped pieces of toast and a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice (or if you like something more fancy, champagne) should do the trick. Here’s the […]

Chichi

Chi-Chi’s

Saturday we went to a Mexican restaurant in Antwerp called Chi-Chi’s as an early Valentine’s date (since we can’t celebrate the 14th). I’ve always wanted to try it out, ever since I found out about it’s excistence. I’m usually not a great culinary adventurer, knowing that there are unfortunately a lot of things I don’t […]

Mantle Piece After

Decorating for Valentine’s

So this didn’t turn out to be as much of a DIY project as I wanted… But I’m going to show you guys anyways. Somewhere in November we finished our living room (half of it that is) and we started buying some stuff to decorate our little cozy corner with. We decorated it for the […]

Sunday Ramblings

Hello guys, no your eyes aren’t deceiving you, I am posting on a Sunday. I’ve been away for 2 days and felt a bit obligated to post something to break the silence.

We love city trips

Today I didn’t really know what to post about. I’m still working on scheduling posts more than a week up front… So this is another Throwback Thursday post! I know I did one last week, but I really love them. I think memories are one of the most important things in life. A thing we […]

Reading corner Blog

The perfect reading spot

I told you I was going to try to finish A Game of Thrones this week. Well, I’ve always found that reading comes hand in hand with either some wine, or a nice cup of tea or some hot chocolate. In any case, I need my blanket (only when I’m at home of course!). It […]

Week 4

Reading list

Since my first literature update was a complete fail (I didn’t finish the book on time) I thought I’d share with you my reading list. There’s 5 items on it at the moment, but there’s more in my mind and I am still deciding on which ones I’ll throw in there next. So without further […]

January Round-up

I survived my first month of blogging. Yay! This is the longest I have ever blogged on a regular basis. So on that score it’s kind of been a great month for me. Although it didn’t all go the way I had planned it. At first I didn’t want to blog daily, but then I […]

TBT

Throwback Thursday! Today was a rather sunny day, and for a second it made me feel like summer was back. I so want it to be summer again! To see the sunshine and know it’s going to be at least pleasantly warm outside, rather than freezing cold. Earlier this week I mentioned our vacation in […]

Lemon Chicken with Tarragon

Lemon Chicken with Tarragon

  To make up for last week’s lack of posts, I’ll share with you a recipe I tried out this weekend. I really loved the sour taste of the lemon and the very specific taste of tarragon, though it might be more appropriate in spring or summer, but it’s too good to ignore it even in […]

A thousand lives

Fruit for Thought

Since I’m reading A Game of Thrones, I decided to share some of George R.R. Martin’s quotes. He’s said a lot of things that are worth thinking about. I picked out 5 shorter quotes I liked, about life and books: “There has to be a level of joy of what you’re doing.” “All fiction has […]

Potatoes

Potatoes with a creamy pesto dip

This is a perfect appetizer when you’re having friends or family over for a laid-back dinner. It’s on the heavier side, so maybe not perfect for combining with other appetizers.

Beetroot Soup

Beetroot Soup

Aloha! Today’s soup is perfect for warming yourself during the cold winter. I actually used some feta (25 grams per serving) but this combo didn’t work that well for me. So I won’t be including it in the recipe. But if you want to, feel free to try it! You just have to cut the […]

Mushroom Soup

Mushroom Soup

Hello there! We’re already halfway through the week. Time passes by so quickly… So it’s time for my third soup of the week. I love mushrooms! That’s why this soup really is one of my favorites. It takes a bit longer than the green pea soup or the cauliflower soup, but it’s just as easy. […]

Green Pea Soup with Mint

Green Pea Soup with Mint

Hi! It’s winter, and in my opinion very cold (it’s like my fingers and nose are frozen all the time). During this period I can really enjoy a nice hot bowl of soup. I’ve only made soup once in my life… So It’s about time I changed that! One soup recipe each day, that is what […]
