How To Create

I LOVE a good hotel! I’ve never been in a bad one actually, but I don’t wanna jinx it! I’m not only obsessed with the breakfast buffets, but also with the fresh, lovely and most-of-the-time quite beautiful bedrooms. Don’t we all want that every night?! In our own bedroom? At home?! YES. WE DO. And there are a few tips I wanted to share with you, on how to create that hotel-vibe feeling in your own bedroom. It’s really not all that difficult!

Piggy Bank

I’m embracing my geeky side today! This isn’t my first DIY Piggy Bank, but I am absolutely obsessed with this one. Almost as much as I am with superheroes in general. I adore the superhero films, but I love the old-fashioned comic-books even more. You know, the ones with screams like BOOM, POW & BAM… And when I discovered that they were available as confetti, well, I just had to have them!

Summer Sticker Notebook

If you follow me on Twitter, you probably already know that I have been crushing’ on summer DIYs recently. I might be a bit early, The Netherlands still has some freezing’ cold days, but if you think about it: aren’t we all ready for summer?! So. To start my own summer DIYs, I wanted to work on something useful (even when summer isn’t technically here yet). So. I came up with this very simple, very summery notebook. Now you can bring the summer inside!

Luxurious Giftwrapping

Am I the only one who’s always saying ‘YES’ when (some) stores ask the question ‘any gifts?’ Just because they are spectacularly good in luxurious giftwrapping? I can’t be the only one doing this, right? All their ribbons and giftboxes are just so beautiful, I am particularly jealous of the girls who always seem to get every edge just perfectly wrapped. And because I love their style so much, I’ve been trying it out myself!

Emoji Notebook

I will admit that I am a little (too much) in love with these emoji stickers. The fact that I’ve now used up all the really awesome ones is incredibly frustrating to me. You’d think I would be satisfied with a piggy bank (and trinket boxes) covered in emoji’s: but I’m not. The only thing I want is cover EVERYTHING with bright yellow paint and a huge amount of emoji’s! Starting with my notebook.

Pride And Prejudice

OBVIOUSLY, i’ve read this book about a hundred times already. Has anyone not read this book?! And if so: have they at least seen the film? So. If I wanted to start a regular blogclub: I couldn’t NOT review Pride And Prejudice. It’s not only one of my favorite classics, it also contains one of my first huge literary crushes: Mr. Darcy. (alright…and a little bit Mr. Bingley)

Chocolate Sprinkles

I know a lot of you aren’t from the Netherlands, so let me explain. We have a little thing that we call ‘Hagelslag’, they’re these chocolate sprinkles that we use on our breads, desserts and cakes. And around holidays we always add a little something extra called funnies (little candies, or chocolates). The only problem is that these special funnies ‘hagelslag’ are really expensive. And that while you can so easily do it yourself!

EMOJI! There is this little voice in the back of my mind that always screams for more emoji projects. That voice doesn’t always have matching brilliant ideas, but this time… It did! ‘Cause who doesn’t want to make an emoji piggy bank?! It’s incredibly easy, and THE. BEST. way to save your money! Let’s make one, shall we?!

Camera Strap

As a DIY-blogger, you can’t really use the camera strap that comes with the camera. Obviously. You need to make your own! And I did! In collaboration with EndlessLeather, who were kind enough to send me this amazing twisted leather silk strap, I made my very own silk camera strap… In less than 15 minutes.

Big Magic

On the Dutch version of my blog I often talk about books. On this version a little less. TILL NOW! ‘Cause I want to start sharing my favorite books with y’all. And of course I’d love to hear about your favorites as well. So, I am starting a WM Bookclub! Starting with one of my new favorite additions: Big Magic, by Elizabeth Gilbert. A guide for creative living beyond fear.
