Le Creuset and Westwing

Hello, … I’m so giddy as I have recently found out about Westwing and they have a Le Creuset sale going on. A few weeks back there was also a Le Creuset sale going on, so I signed up and had an amazing offer on a few casseroles. I was in desperate need of a new casserole as the one I had was becoming quite tatty. I bought it years…

Wonder Woman

Today it’s my mother’s birthday but it’s also international girls day. It doesn’t come as a surprise to me that those two events share a date. My mother raised me as from my 14th birthday all by herself as my father quite abruptly passed away. My sister and brother who are both respectively much older than I already moved out or were on their way to move out. So for…

A Little House in the Country

We have found ourselves a little house in the country. For like ever Bo and I have been dreaming about living in the country, in a field surrounded by lots of green and the dream of no neighbours. But Bo and I like large Victorian houses with high ceilings and massive windows and ornate ceiling and lots of fra-la-la. You will not find such houses in a field in our…

Vintage Holiday Magazine

The official signing of the papers date for my previous home is on the 21st of October, so another good month of packing up and saying goodbye. We have found a really charming temporary home just at the end of the road, in the middle of the countryside. So it’s not going to be The Netherlands but it remains Belgium where our second home will be. The house hunt for…

It’s Going to be Sweden

After a very long radio silence of soul-searching and wondering what to do next, we have decided that it’s going to be a rental in The Netherlands and a home in Småland Sweden. I’m really excited about this next phase in my life as it’s going to be completely life changing. We’ll have to drive (12 hours) or fly (2 hours) back and forth while renovating the property we are…

Cookbook of the Month

Yvestown Kookt, my new book, has made it to cookbook of the month August in The Netherlands and Belgium. This is quite a big honer. What does this entitle? The book will be for sale and on display in quality (cook)book stores throughout Belgium and The Netherlands during the month of August. Initially it’s supposed that I’ll do a couple of signing sessions but I personally don’t like to do…

The End of an Era

And just like that we have sold our home in Belgium. After living here for 8 years we feel the need to move on and try something new. I also know that lots of you are curious to where we are going to move to but I still can’t tell that as we still haven’t made our minds up. It’s either going to be a nice big old crazy house…

Choosing Colours

It’s been awhile since I last wrote about paint and colours. Instagram always inspires me to write about certain topics as readers are so much more active in leaving comments over there as to here – which I find a shame. Anyhow, it was this image of my living room that inspired me to write this post. Before I start decorating, setting up a good colour scheme is key. I…
