In need of some silk shirts. Like these ones. Perfection.

Weekend wanderlust

Friday night, another weekend begins. Two days to spend some quality time at home and with friends & family. I'll also be sorting out my bookcases this weekend - organizing all my books by colour like in this apartment. This post on 101 cookbooks inspired me to dust off my juicer. Spring can't come soon enough - I really want to wear this dress. Get inspired by Matchbook Magazine's resolutions. And I'll be dreaming about my place in the sun - I already booked a summer holiday to this gorgeous place in Turkey.


Dish of the day


Set myself a challenge going into the new year: try cooking at least one new recipe a week. A lot of really nice dishes appeared in my kitchen the last couple of weeks. Like this warm cauliflower salad - crunchy cauliflower and sticky red onion, a delicious combination. A great way to kickstart my day is this breakfast crisp. Perfect recipe to use some leftover greens - pancakes. Delicious with a tomato salad on the side. And this Moroccan salad with sweet carrots and dried dates is a tasty combination of flavours. Feel free to mail me your favourite recipe, if you'd like me to try it out!

Style crush: Elisa Sednaoui

Long time since I did one of these style posts... Style crush du jour: Elisa Sednaoui. This Italian model is a muse for Chanel, has Christian Louboutin on speed dial and is the poster girl for French chic. Some girls have it all: loose wavy hair straight from a hair commercial, a flawless smile and a polished yet sexy & undone look. She makes it all look so easy. 

Shades of grey

Feel inspired by the different shades of grey. Warm or cool. Neutral or bold. Already painted my bedroom walls grey, bought some beautiful grey candles and a fluffy sweater - what's next...

What I loved... in December

December, last month of the year. I hosted a family lunch to show off my new kitchen. Went to visit my friend and her newborn son - such a cutie. Was inspired by a visit to the apartment of a colleague and painted my bedroom walls the following day as a result. The perfect shade of grey. And celebrated Christmas with my family, eating lots of cake (this one). Followed by a walk on the beach the next day to burn of those calories.

The past year has been pretty incredible - trips to Paris and Rotterdam, lots of dinners with friends and family, DIY-days, a perfect birthday brunch and welcoming my friends' babies into this world. I wish you all the very best for the new year! May 2013 bring inspiration, love, gratitude and a whole lotta luck your way.
