I think bedrooms, more than any other room in the house, should be free from clutter and have a super calm, puristic and relaxing atmosphere. For my next apartment I want crisp white sheets and a low bed. *image credits: unknown, blood and champagne, the berry, bode and fou, happy inferior blog, unknown, black bird style, urban outfitters, unknown, referans, the coveter, unknown, unknown, apartment therapy, unknown.
If you were a crafty kid like me you probably had a little arts and crafts corner in your room with some crayons and coloured paper, where you would happily spend hours drawing pictures and designing other pen-and-paper creations. Nowadays I still like to get into a ‘creative zen mode’ where I just make stuff, but instead of drawing crayon pictures I like to make jewellery. It’s not quite the same though. You only need a good set of crayons […]
I recently went on an online hunt for some quick and easy vegetarian dinner recipes, and I think I’ve found enough vegan food blogs to keep me busy for a long time. These are the recipes I plan on trying out as soon as possible. All of them use only vegan ingredients, apart from the last one. Sweet Potato Veggie Burger with Avocado by Healthy Happy Life Open Face Sandwich with Tofu by All the good girls go to heaven […]
While doing research for this post on dip dying I came across the idea of dip dying/colour blocking/painting the bottom of a tin can with a pastel colour! So simple, but very cool in my opinion :) The same night I made my own version from a can of peas and I’ve been using it ever since to store my everyday make up essentials and jewellery. I love the contrast between the shiny metal and the matte white.
Time for another ring bracelet (or slave bracelet) tutorial! Recently I have been experimenting with different designs and colour schemes and this is one of my favourite variations of the basic ring bracelet, with beads on a nylon thread as the middle piece. I like my bracelets to be relatively delicate and minimal, so I chose small transparent rocailles beads with a turquoise centre, but feel free to use any other colour/shape you like :) The pic above shows the […]
Something I eat all the time: Start with a tortilla wrap, add lots of raw spinach leaves, slices of 1/2 – 1 avocado and 1 tomato and finish with a sprinkle of pine nuts. Wrap together for a quick and healthy sandwich alternative. Depending on how much avocado you use, this can be a light snack or a super filling dinner. Add a bit of yoghurt dressing for extra flavour.
2-minute DIY idea: These extensions attach to a stud and you can choose to either add them behind your lobe or in front right behind the stud. I wear them with a little star stud and let them drop down from behind my lobe, so it looks a bit like a shooting star. You need one jump ring and about 12cm of chain, silver or gold, your choice. Cut the chain into 4 pieces of different lengths with a wire […]
About once a week I get an email by a reader asking me about my nose ring and whether they should get one too, so I thought I’d do a little FAQ and show you some of my favourite inspirations to make your decision a little easier. I’ve had my nose piercing for two years now, and I love it. It’s hard to explain, but I really like the look of girls with little studs or smaller rings, especially if […]
Dip dyeing has to be one of my favourite interior design trends right now.

Supersize scrabble tiles! I got the idea from this cool shop on Etsy. The concept is simple: just cut out letters from a self-adhesive foil and stick it on some wooden squares. It does take a bit of time and a steady hand to cut out the little numbers and any round letters, but I think the end result is worth it. All you need are some wooden squares and self-adhesive black foil. I used chalk board foil just because it’s […]
