A you the home chef? Make the kitchen your sanctuary!

Are you the chef in the family? This makes you the designer of the kitchen. Why not create your own little sanctuary of the kitchen. I enjoy cooking with an iPad on the counter which makes it my moment in the day without work or kids.

As you can see I have my eyes locked on this pink sink. How cool is that!! It is by Schock in Germany. And I love the glazing on the pendant. It would be items like those that would make me love to spend more time in my kitchen. And if it improves my cooking I am sure all family members will see the benefit of that.

Oh hey vacay!

Not sure about your plans but I am taking a break to spend some quality time with husband and kids this summer. Hope it will be a summer like last year. The grass was not so happy but I loved the heat.

There's rainbows and holidays on my mind

With Spring kicking in I am starting to long for the same long, warm, sticky summer as last year. Wearing flimsy clothes and flipflops and drinking fruit juice and gin tonics. This combination gives me the same vibes. A vibrant Ibiza feel rug and palm tree lamps combined with wicker and some kick ass artwork. It feels like rainbows and summer in my mind.

Become a style instead of parading after one

I love the community of Instagram. It has brought so many brands to my attention that I otherwise may not have found. So kudos for that. However.... it also seems to kill our own creativity. We all seem to create the seem mudded toned kids rooms. I am wondering where is the brightness, where are the vibrant colours. Still okay to choose a theme but add some personality. 

So here is my kick in the bud, add some colour, embrace your own creativity and become a style instead of parading after one. YOU CAN DO IT!!!

This sparks me joy!

This sparks me joy! I don't do the Marie Kondo style of living. I could try for a while but I am not a stick to the program kind of person. It has however helped me a great deal getting rid of some items that I was hanging on to for the wrong reason. So a big hurray to her for that.

If I was to live a Marie Kondo kind of 'no clutter' lifestyle I would imagine it looking a bit like this. Choose the items that spark you joy. And this selection creates fireworks from where I am standing!

Collect your memories on a wall

Whenever I go through my photo feed I have favourites. Those should be enlarged to a size for a beautiful memory wall. Why keep them locked up in a digital devise? This wall is all about moments with my kids, the life we had in Singapore. It won't stay like this for ever, it will keep changing and growing just like my kids do.
