Books + Puzzles? YES PLEASE. – 4 years ago I switched from reading Dutch translations to reading English books, and ever since that moment I have been devouring a lot of middle-grade novels. (I even read ‘Book Scavenger’ twice in the last 3 months.) So, when I was searching for the first WM bookclub entry, ‘Book Scavenger’ was thé absolute favorite… – Although, I might’ve spoiled how I feel about this book with the little bit of information above.
Can we please all vow to say ‘NO’ to plain gift wrapping this year? I know. I know. It would take far less time if you’d just let the shop assistants wrap your presents, but there is something special about creating it yourself. – and gorgeously wrapped presents are such an practical, (cute) idea to spread some beauty… Below i’ve written the steps I take to create thé perfect details, with unique bits and bobs.
I am hoping that this ‘post on finding the perfect cookbook will save you some stress and money. I’ve always struggled with impulse decisions and so when I started searching for my very first cookbook I almost bought one that wasn’t exactly my-cup-of-tea, just because I was lazy and in a hurry to fill the corner in my kitchen. Lesson learned (!), and I can honestly say that every second of researching was worth it, because I recently found the PER-FECT cookbook for me!
23 and never been to an wellness-centre. That’s me! Or better said: That WAS me. Recently however I got the chance to spend a day at Thermen Bussloo, and it might have been the pérfect timing (just-before-christmas); but I’ve definitely started appreciating ‘mind & body wellness’ more… And, in taking baby-steps on my way to create daily wellness rituals, one of my first focus points were finding AND making natural beauty products… Vanilla Bath Salt for example.
