Have you ever tried the ultimate green smoothie formula? If not, today might be the perfect day to try it. It’s Monday a new start of the week and it can be a new start to eat more healthy food. I love smoothies but don’t make it as much as I want to. I have decided to make a change in that and have found a lot of different recipes for smoothies. The other day I made this green smoothie made out of almond milk, spinach, banana, avocado and dry figs. It was amazingly delicious and gave me a boost for more. The recipe I found on Pinterest but can’t find it from it’s original website. I hope I do not offend anyone by showing the formula for a perfect smoothie here on my blog. Another good thing about making a smoothie is that is it so easy! Of course…

Today I want to show you my Leaf art made out of thread and nails. I love crafting and especially all different kind of craft. Sometimes I get my own ideas and sometimes I just want to make something I have seen somewhere else. Like this Leaf art I found on Pinterest right here. I thought it looked amazing and wanted to try to make this leaf for a long time. Now I finally did, and I must admit that it was not as easy as I thought it would be. There were not much instruction by the pictures, but I thought it couldn’t be that difficult. Well… it wasn’t really difficult, it was more that I needed to do some things better and more carefully and I needed to take the time. When I started I thought I would make it slightly different from the original. I love to…

Hellen van Meene – The Years Shall Run Like Rabbits A background story: My daughter was a couple of years ago asked to pose for a photographer here in Heiloo. The Photographer was a mother from a girl in her ballet class and she was constantly looking for young girl models. I didn’t know her and looked her up on the Internet. It turned out to be a very famous photographer/artist which is known all over the world with exhibitions running from New York to Tokyo, Germany and of course in Holland. Hellen van Meene Hellen told us that she was busy with a book (The Years Shall Run Like Rabbits) and she wanted to make some classic pictures of Alieke for the book. Hellen takes all her pictures with natural light, therefore she had planned the photo-shoot on a Saturday afternoon around two o’clock, because then there was a…

SMALL TIPS FOR RESTYLING YOUR KITCHEN Restyling your kitchen can be a quite expensive thing to do, but it doesn’t have to cost much money if the basic is allright. With very little effort and money you can reach big results. Here at home my kitchen is an important place. I spend a lot of time there and it is open to our dining- and living room so we all have contact to each other. I love open spaces and lately I have been changing style around the house and now it was time to change the kitchen as well so it all would fit together. But a issue here at the moment is, (like by many people) that we have to be careful with the money we spent. We actually didn’t have any budget to use on redecorating the kitchen, so I thought of some small inexpensive ways to…

The fall is all around us and it’s time to give you a recipe for a very special Spice cake of mine, which will fit perfectly for a rainy day in the fall. The recipe I have had since I was a girl. I think I made it for the first time at school when I was 11/12 years old?? I still love this Spice cake very much and wanted to blow some new life into it. Normally I only put a little bit of icing sugar on top of the cake but this time I wanted it to be more luxereus and special. I decide to put some caramelized nuts onto it. I found a special mix in the store with different kinds of nuts together with cranberries and raisins and that was going to be for my topping. I have never tried to make caramelize nuts before so…
