She Reminds me of Apricots…

…or maybe I should put it the other way around. Apricots remind me of her. “Her” is the friend I was really close to but somehow she and I lost contact. I wanted to write her a letter for so long (social media is not her thing) but this takes time and so passes another…

Ode to my Baby Carrier… and R.Kelly

With babies being “parent clingers” (they want to be carried around), I carry Thiago a lot. In the beginning, I carried him in my arms. Then my arms became tired and I felt limited in my actions (although I managed to do a lot of domestic work with one hand only!) so I had to find…

I Scream Ice Cream

I can eat ice cream every day. That’s actually what I am doing since Thiago’s birth. I eat it e-v-e-r-y day! When I heard that the Gelato Festival di Firenze was on tour and coming to Amsterdam, the decision was easy. We had to go! Once arrived, we went full in and purchased the complete…

My Milky Way Guide

From the beginning, breastfeeding has been a non-problematic topic for me. I already produced pre-milk before my baby was born. The real milk kicked in one day after the little bird’s birth. A couple of  days later, the nurses said that I could provide milk for some for other mothers. That strong was my milk…

Light Blue Saturday

  I love Saturdays. Saturdays mean that I can sleep in a little but they also stand for the fact that we get to spend the whole day together as a family. Today was an exceptional day as it was sunny but the wind from the sea made the heat bearable. It was lovely and…

Whistle & Flute

Nowadays, I don’t have much time to read magazines. I still buy them though as I like the idea of sitting in a cafe or being in the park and reading them but as said…it’s an idea. In reality, I read them very quickly but with my phone being much better adapted to my new…

The Dooky

When having a baby there are so many things to get which is quite overwhelming. I figured out that splitting all items in two groups worked the best for me. There was the important gear that was (or at least it seemed) absolutely essential and the things that were “nice to have” but which could…

Cute Attack: Freshly Picked

  It was one of those Thursdays when we lay on the couch while eating watermelon and watching Shark Tank; this show where enterpreneurs pitch their business to financial investors (sharks) to obtain money and guidance. There are various types of businesses. Some are hilarious and some really random but it happens as well that a…

Closet Cleanse Vintage Promenade

It has been too long; way too long. Over years and years, I have been accumulating a sea of clothes, shoes and accessories. By now, my closet was literally bursting at the seams. It was as if our house was not only inhabited by us but also by some room mates. Room mates that were…

Coffee, please!

I have never been a big coffee drinker. I have always liked the smell, especially from freshly grounded beans and brewed coffee. However, its taste has never been something that I appreciated a lot. On its own, is has a very strong effect on me. It makes my heart beat fast. Sometimes my hands become…
