This weekend my sister is moving to her tiny, but o so cute apartment! Am so excited! We will be carrying boxes eight stairs up and down (old Amsterdam housing is unfamiliar with elevators), so my weekend will be quite active. Hope you have a more relaxed one! Enjoy :)

Tea from Hamburg

My lovely friends gifted me some tea and a tin from Tee Maass (in Hamburg, Germany) for my birthday. The ingredients are amazing, especially the China Sencha Chai that has the warmth of the Indian Chai tea, but has a more softer edge by the orange blossom. Perfect for the cold days! Happy Thursday :)

Get up

Time to get up out of bed and face the cold. I cannot complain, this weekend the sun was out...but so was the cold :(. The only thing I could do was enjoy the sun, laugh with my friends & family, drinks loads of tea and stuff myself with incredible comfort food. Have a great week!

It´s almost weekend! Almost time to relax and get loose! My plans are quite simple: relax and try not to inhale too much cold air. Enjoy the weekend, I´ll be dreaming of this picture :)

I love stars almost as much as I love stripes...almost. They have this magical, rhythmical, silent, but still playful message that intrigues me.

It is time for some gloves. I don't think these will keep me warm, but every year I look at them and have the urge to wear them. I know it's very old school, but it is also mysterious and dramatic. And I like that from time to time. The current drama is dealing with the cold breeze :).

Do you have them?

So it´s cold out there and scarves and jackets and hot tea and soup are my best friends...and Uggs are out there. I don´t have Uggs. Firstly I didn´t have them because I thought they were ugly. Then I considered them last winter when it was freezing cold and slippery. Then my ugg-lover friend slipped 3 times in a row on them (my sign to not buy them). And now I just don´t have them. Do you?

Garance posted this hilarious video about them, it is really funny. Makes me wonder...

Even if it´s Monday...

Have a great week!

Juice it up

I tried something new this morning: instead of my making my morning coffee (I drink mostly one cup a day, followed by tea, tea, tea and tea), I prepared some fruit and veggies for a fruit smoothie! It was delicious!! And it really woke me up.

My ingredients for today were: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, grapefruit and spinach (the spinach blends in very good). Am not sure how often I will do this in the morning, as it requires a little bit extra time over coffee making :)

Wednesday's are always quite busy for me as it is a measurement for being halfway through the week, with only two days left after the day is finished and an action list that hasn't really moved since Monday. It is like a reality check: 'Get some work done, not much time left!' Have a busy, but wonderful day!

Mirror too

I have been looking for the perfect mirrors for my apartment...without luck so far. These pictures are quite inspirational, I wish I could just  copy-paste them right into my interior :)
