I wanted to treat myself to something nice to start the new year (well actually, I just needed an excuse to buy things but whatever) and came across the Dutch webshop Sensationalhome. They sell a range of Yankee candle products and I’ve been wanting to try them out for quite a while now. I purcased […]

Last year I posted my uber-short resolutions list, and as a good girl should I’m back to review. 🙂 No, I did not buy a dishwasher. It has something to do with my impossible kitchen and certain potentially dangerous construction that involves electricity. Instead, I just negleced my dishes for the better part of the […]

What’s supposed to be the most image-heavy post of the year turned out to be a bit meager. My grandmother fell ill in the first week of December and passed away. Time seemed to slow down which, in all it’s relativity, would mean I was moving very fast. The cremation was intimate and just how […]

I hate fall. I browse around Blogland reading post after post about the loveliness of fall and it’s colours and what not and I still hate it. I hate rain when I have to get on my bike in the morning. I hate rain when I have to pick up my son in the afternoon. […]

They were better than the ones they usually get during tea time. So last week I put a bored boy to work decorating the windows with watersoluble markers and baked […]

September, for us, meant the start of a new chapter. That first day of school went by faster than I could have imagined. It took me a few days to realize that my baby will be in school for at least the next 15 years of our lives. Luckily my mother joined us to keep […]
