Monday Mood: Lucky Child

Word jij af en toe ook zo blij van kleine herinneringen uit je jeugd? Onlangs spotte ik op Pinterest de View Master: Magisch!! :) Een combinatie van een verrekijker en een fototoestel, waar diaplaatjes werden getoond na een klik. Pure nostalgie met een mooi jeugdsentimentje :) Op het festival**...

Monday Mood: Blueberry Dream

Afgelopen weekend was rustig, zonnig en bovenal inspirerend! Er waren tientallen festivals her en der, maar zelf heb ik feitelijk 'niks' gedaan behalve een up-tempo lesje Sh'Bam op de zaterdagochtend (een blijvertje), huisman spelen en een hapje en drankje met vrienden. Ontspannen is heerlijk als je het...

Monday Mood: Be Unique

For some it takes longer to have an own voice than to others. I own one since the last 3 years - I guess. I've always had a different taste, way, point of view and all that - but I mostly kept it to myself....

Monday Mood: Music is my therapy

Music has always been very important for me. Besides the lack of talent for playing any instrument, I love singing (in the shower) and there's no day passing by without listening or dancing to music. Music to me is like therapy. "Sometimes music is the...

Monday Mood: Dolce Italy

Yesterday I participated a bloggers lunch with an Italian theme. Jup, it’s a cliché, but ‘La vita é bella’! Especially with great food, a fresh glass of Prosecco with Limoncello ‘Fiorito’ and new inspiring people in a cozy well-decorated space 🙂 Eddy and Femk, the culinary duo of Hééérlijk ‘Delicious’ served lovely Italian food.

Although I never visited Italy, the pasta salad, bruschetta with cream cheese, ham and figs and the great finish: home-made tiramisu, made my head believe I was on holiday! Ever since I’ve read and saw the movie ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ I wanted to enjoy the Italian food like it was described in the book. So now Roberts and I share two things: red hair and a love for Italian food. On this Monday I want to share some of that ‘Dolce Italy’ feeling with you!

I found a lovely saying and I quote: “Il Dolce Far Niente”, which actually means “The Sweetness Of Doing Nothing”. Something you can keep in mind after your work day – or maybe for next weekend. Have a great week all!

Monday Mood: Go outside

Have you felt the power of the outsides lately? Well I did last weekend while I stayed at my best friends house in the upper north of Holland called "Friesland". The road towards turned the land more green and wide open. More water, animals and...

Monday Mood: Call me a dreamer

Ever since I was a little kid I've been dreaming, creating and imagining. Everybody dreams, right? With dreams there is hope for something you want in the future (or earlier). Dreaming is moving forward on an different plane - safe and for your eyes only....

Monday Mood: Laugh more

Once a year it's tradition to visit Maastricht. We stay at my best friends parents and hit the city for shopping, drinks, dancing and deep conversations - a weekend I cherish! With on my left Bram, the crazy ex-local, world traveller in progress and soulmate....

Monday Mood: Breakfast in bed

It's Pentecost which means extra long weekend! To me that means spending more time in bed, having all essentials within arm reach and starting the day with new ideas...
