The Best Damn Soft Ginger Cookies

I bake literally every day. It’s getting a  bit ridiculous, because it’s not like we really feel like having home-baked goodies all the time …but baking does get my mind off things. It’s my 15-minutes time alone where I can focus on measuring the ingredients and nothing else. I literally switch off. Today I omitted the oil and just as I was taking the batter from the fridge all ready to go into the oven I had to add the olive oil… Yep, that’s me. But the cookies turned out great, so no worries :). Tomorrow, the moms from my mother’s group are coming over for coffee at my place, so that’s my excuse for baking today.  To make the cookies – preheat...

BOOM… It’s here!

It’s here! My brand new watch by BOOM watches that I designed myself! And yes, I do have a thing for watches. Not that I ever use them for their real purpose, I have my phone for that…so it should come as no surprise that my watches are always a lil bit behind or forward. Plus, my watches serve a better purpose – to spice my outfits up. So no…I didn’t really need a new watch until I discovered BOOM. I was able to pick the main parts of the watch myself and decide on its final look. And what better for an indecisive individual like me, right? It took me some time to decide exactly which strap I wanted because let’s be honest – all of them...

Styling It Up.

I can’t even remember when I last wore dressy clothes. Maybe on Christmas Eve? But then would it make any sense to be all glamorous and cool for my daily trip to the grocery store? I don’t think so. Becoming a mommy means learning to multitask big time. Thankfully, I’m pretty good at it. I can make myself look presentable even with Sofia in my arms…so in my case it’s not really about that. It’s about the fact that my daily routine has changed so much that it’s more of a struggle than pleasure to stick to my old ways. I can’t even imagine taking the train to the city with Sofia – the wagon, feeding her among all those other people… No...

Suede Meets Denim.

Okay it happened! Philip and I spent an hour all by ourselves! His mom was in town and she volunteered to take care of Sofia-Malou while we were strolling around the city hand-in-hand without having to worry whether the little one would wake up and seek the book hehe. This was the longest time I’ve been away from her and it went great. The two of them were having so much fun that I don’t even think she’d noticed my absence! So far so good, but still can’t help but feel a bit anxious regarding the transition of me looking after Sofia 24/7 and having someone to look after her occasionally. I wish we had initiated the process a little...

Let’s Talk Teeth Whitening

Since I gave birth, I’ve been drinking so much coffee that now I don’t even like vanilla lattes anymore. The stronger the better if you ask me! And it’s quite noticeable on my teeth that I’ve been living on caffeine over that last 6 months. They’ve definitely lost their perfectly white shade, so I’ve been trying to find a solution to fix their colour without affecting them too much. I’m saying that because the only two times I’ve had them bleached, the dentists used an overly aggressive teeth whitening treatment (with a laser and a special whitening paste). Even though my teeth turned perfectly white the whole process was way too painful!  My gums were literally burning from the paste and laser, and my...
