Monday morning tunes

A new week, a new song. There are so many good new albums coming out lately. Some of my favourite new ones are from Moddi, Keaton Henson, Local Natives and James Vincent McMorrow. I’m also really looking forward to the new album of Bon Iver, so far I really love the two new singles they recently released.

I have been listening a lot to this new song released by Local Natives last week. Such a good tune to listen to when you go for a long walk, bike ride or run.

It’s Friday!


I’m so happy it’s Friday and that the weekend is about to start. This week I felt quite uninspired and tired, I had to really push myself to get any work done. Maybe it’s because the change of the seasons? I’m looking forward to a busy weekend enjoying the early Autumn days together with family and friends. I can’t wait to go to the French bakery tomorrow morning to get some freshly baked croissants, my favourite Saturday tradition. What are your plans?

Here’s some weekend inspiration from my Pinterest.


Monday morning tunes


Since March 2015 I’ve been keeping a weekly jams playlist on Spotify to which I add new tracks every week. To accompany this playlist I would love to share some of my favorite songs on the blog every Monday morning.

This week I would like to share this song by Yuck, an English band that I discovered recently thanks to my personal discover weekly on Spotify. I’ve listened to this song a lot for the last couple of days because it’s so calm and has that happy vibe all over it. It’s the perfect song to listen to in the morning while you sip your coffee and daydream a little.

Sunday with scones and a forest walk


This morning we decided to make some scones, normal ones for Rene and with blueberries for me.sunday-breakfastscone-with-strawberry-jamThey were so delicious! Especially with some strawberry jam on top.


After our late breakfast we went out for a long walk. The heather is still blooming a little bit.walk-2walk-4

Living so close to the forest has been one of my favorite things about moving to Hilversum. Nothing calms me more than a walk in the forest. I really can’t wait for Autumn with it’s spectaculair colours and chilly temperatures.

♥ Hope you had a lovely Sunday as well ♥

A hot Wednesday Morning


With temperatures above the 30 degrees Celcius you could say the weather is pretty extraordinary for September. This week started slowly for me as I was being quite sick last Sunday. Yesterday my parents and my grandma visited us and we had a bbq on our rooftop terrace. It was so nice to be together and to show my grandma our new home. We appreciate these days together so much more since we don’t live really close to each other. Today I’m slowly cleaning up the house a little bit and trying to stay cool. This morning I enjoyed a piece of lemon/vanilla cake that I baked and topped it with jam and strawberries, so good!

I’ve been reading a lot of books again and just started reading Just Kids by Patti Smith. It has been on my ‘to read’ list for quite a while and finally bought it earlier this week.
