Mijn mojo! Diep weggestopt en onder een dikke laag ‘ik weet het allemaal niet’ vond ik het terug. De zin om te maken, te doen, te ontdekken en te leren. Als er iets is wat ik de afgelopen tijd geleerd heb… baby steps’! Gewoon weer eens af en toe een foto delen op dit ernstig verwaarloosde hoekje wat ik een blog noem.

Dus aanschouw, zelfgemaakte soepstengels! Gewoon omdat het kan.

It’s summer!

And I bought the warmest boots ever to celebrate! These Sendra booties had been on my wishlist for a little while and I’m happy they found their way to my closet! Even though this type of weather calls for sandals and bare feet..



Humus is a newfound favorite as a veggie dip or bread spread. Made a basic Humus with garlic and coriander, mmmmmmmmm!

June could have easily been confused for October. We almost got fooled into believing it was autumn. Wintercoats got unpacked again and sandals didn’t get to see daylight yet.

Despite all that, we did have the occasional nice warm summer day!


One of these nice and warm weekends I spent in the south of Holland. Me and my mom did what we do best; shopping and enjoying the scenery!


Near gulpen, where we stayed for the weekend, is an American cemetery and battle monument. It was breathtaking to see how many soldiers have fallen fighting for their country. The air felt heavy and you could almost sense the sadness surrounding the cemetery.



On a lighter note; I bought some white aspargus in Gulpen. I combined it with ruccola lettuce, a boiled egg, melted butter and some falafel and a bit of cheese. Definitely not a conventional way to prepare aspargus, but it was good!



Mid June I went home to my parents place and did some shopping in their vegetable garden. I’ve always been a veggie lover, but lately I’m trying to incorporate them as much as possible into my daily diet.



For the second time this month I traveled down south. This time to hang around at the Pinkpop festival. Beers were drunk, songs were sung, throats got sore, noses got burned, it was great!



My cat still does not approve of me sleeping.. period. Most mornings I find him impatiently sitting on my chest, waiting for me to wake up. Cats!


June got to an end and to wrap it up, me and my mom decided to get our cultural freak on and visit the Van Gogh museum. It was nice to see the famous paintings and to read about the interesting story behind Van Gogh’s life, but boy… did this man paint a lot! By the time we arrived at the 4th level of the museum we felt we’d seen enough paintings for the rest of the year!
