Wrapping Of Valentines Day Gifts

Ever since I shared my ‘perfect wrapping of wedding gifts’, I’ve been wanting to write a follow-up! But I couldn’t come up with the perfect reason…UNTIL NOW! It’s getting so close to February 14th, that it’s time to start the wrapping of Valentines Day gifts. And why not wrap your gifts with a lot of bits and bobs this year?!

Writing Valentines Day Cards

Y’all probably know how much I adore Shark Tank, and (some of) the amazing companies I discovered through the show. But NEVER before did I fall in love with a product, as much, as I did with the cards from LovePop. 3D art in the shape of a card. A Valentines Day card for example. And what are the chances of it being the perfect time to start writing valentines day cards! Wink. Wink.

Celebrity Crushes Scrapbook

Another scrapbook post?! Well, Yes! Last post I shared my girl crushes, but I kept getting the same question: WHERE ARE THE GUYS?! Well. I saved the guy pages for this special article! Apart from this small sneak peek on Instagram ‘Cause obviously there are definitely a lot of dudes in my fangirl scrapbook! So, get ready to swoon!

DIY Fangirl Scrapbook

I developed these photos when I was 15/16 years old. Probably for some sort of inspiration board. And I only recently re-discovered them. I used to be a HUGE fangirl for the Olsen Twins and Lauren Conrad, and so I couldn’t just throw these pictures away. (Let’s be honest: I still adore them!) And if I love looking back on these heroes now, how about when I am fifty?! That would be SO cool, wouldn’t it?! So… I decided to keep my absolutely favorites and make my very own fangirl scrapbook!

Coloring Books

I still like a lot of kid-stuff. Lego, Barbie, Fairytales; and coloring books! I know there are a lot of proper grown-up coloring books out there; but I particularly like the weird-geeky ones. I started coloring in a Disney Princess coloring book. And now I’m working on this Dutch comic one! (It’s called: Jan, Jans en de Kinderen). So, I am no expert and I don’t really know the best coloring books, but I do wanna share my joy of coloring with y’all!

Wrapping Of Wedding Gifts

You all know how much I LOVE gift wrapping, but last year I discovered a whole new wrapping-genre : wedding gifts! A whole new theory. The most common wedding gift is – of course – money, but we don’t wanna give it in a plain white envelop, now do we?! That isn’t anywhere near as festive as a wedding present should be… So today I am sharing my ‘ perfect wrapping of wedding gifts’ favorites.

The Ultimate Champagne Guide

I don’t drink alcohol that often. So it won’t come as a surprise that I don’t know anything about it, either. Apart from that you get drunk when you drink too much. I learned a little about alcohol this year, with my new cocktail-obsession, but I wanted to learn the basics about the only alcoholic drink I take each year. Champagne. I did a little research, and combined all my new knowledge in the ultimate champagne guide.

DIY Jingle Bells Rosé

It’s christmas eve! Or maybe technically not, if you are reading this in the morning. In that case: tonight it’s christmas eve! And that means that we are at the end of our christmas projects. This is a very sad moment, but luckily New Year follows quickly. So no time to waste: we need to keep going! But.. First… I have one last christmas project to share with you. One of my favourites. These adorable DIY Jingle Bells make every bottle better. Rosé, wine, champagne… even beer.

Guide To Writing Christmas Cards

It takes up a lot of time…but I love it: writing christmas cards! The only problem I face, every year, is the time schedule. Ok, maybe I am a little too demanding on how my christmas cards look… but héy: you only need the very best right?! With gifts and decorations I am usually the first to finish; but christmas cards are a battle against time. Every. Year. Until now. This year I have made myself this schedule guide, so I can’t fail. At least, I hope so.
