Things I like lately

Processed with VSCO with a4 preset

While I’m settling down in our new apartment I finally find the time again to appreciate the little things:

  • All the new plant babies in our new home (makes me a very happy plant mom)
  • Eating all the summer fruits; strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, grapes and watermelon
  • The new Radiohead album! Hoping it will be available on Spotify soon
  • Season 6 of Game Of Thrones- such a good start of the season, could be my favorite so far! Also love the new episodes of Orphan Black on Netflix
  • Coffee beans from Sweet Cup in Amsterdam (with notes of chocolate, sweet citrus and spices)
  • Walks in the forest (and the fact that the forest is now at the end of my street)
  • Reading on the couch in the evenings. I’m reading Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and made a quick start in Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee
  • The concert of Andrew Bird I went to in Paradiso, Amsterdam
  • Finding the perfect striped dressIMG_2810

April In Photos

flower confetti in the streetsWhile I’m writing this blogpost I just realised this will be my first blogpost (a little bit later than expected) from my new apartment! It has been total chaos in my mind for the past weeks but I’m so happy with our new apartment (more about that later).

Early in April we unexpectedly found a new apartment and we would get the keys at the end of the month(!). Between all the stress of moving and packing April was quite a good month though.

bike in Amsterdam

When I was wandering the streets in Amsterdam I came across this cute bike and decided to take a snap. Only then I discovered the string of little flags behing the window. Oh, how things like that can make me smile!
breakfast at NativeInterior at Native

On a early Sunday morning we decided to have breakfast at Native in Haarlem (I already miss this place..)


This is one of my favorite views in Amsterdam. Especially on grey days it looks so charming.
banana bread at MicaPoffertjesOn the 27th of April we celebrate King’s Day in the Netherlands. Every year we eat poffertjes to celebrate which are these mini pancakes and they taste so good!
