Petit Pink

It’s no surprise that I love pink dresses. I have a closet full right now, that I don’t fit anymore :(. Each week I become fatter and fatter, up to the point that our little girl is expected to pop right after summer. So rather than getting myself more pink dresses that will look awful anyway, I started looking for pretty pink items for the little one that’s on her way :). Especially on lazy weekend like this one, I can’t resist swooning over all the cute pinkness I spotted. I’ve rounded up my 15 favorites pink mini outfits of today:

Vacation Packlist

One day left and I am going on vacation!!! My beach house is booked, did my research on all restaurants and bars to visit, but I wish I was a bit better prepared about what to bring.

Nog een dagje en dan ga ik eindelijk op vakantie!!! Mijn strandhuis is geboekt, ik heb mijn huiswerk gedaan en een eindeloze to-do list aan restaurants en bars gemaakt maar wou toch dat ik ook beter voorbereid was op wat mee te nemen. Mijn koffer is nog niet gepakt en heb ook al een tijdje geen zomer spullen meer gekocht. Tijd om mijn kast aan te vullen dus! Hier een aantal items die ik oh zo graag in zou willen pakken:

Sweet 4th of July

The 4th of July is around the corner and I am looking forward to celebrate it. Last year was the first time for me watching the fireworks along the Hudson river, how fun was that! This year I won’t be able to watch the fireworks but still want to do something in order to capture this happy moment of independence. Would’t it be fun to celebrate it with sweets?!

Ice Cream Part I: 10 Popsicles

Ice Cream

As an ice cream addict I have the bad habit to eat ice cream everyday during warm temperatures. Whether it is a soft serve, sorbet or chocolate corn; I enjoy all kinds of ice cream. Unfortunately eating chocolate cones on a daily basis does not contribute to my mission to stay in shape this summer. Since I still need to fit in my dress, I promised myself to eat more popsicles rather than chocolate cones. To kick start this good intention, I just bought a popsicle mold in order to make my own popsicles so I know what (more healthy) ingredients are in it. I looked up some recipes and these are the pops I want to make:  Continue Reading →
