It’s Cuddle Up Day!

Today is Cuddle Up Day.
I updated one of my Best Nine of 2020 with this day in mind.
The Dutch weather is perfect for cuddling up under a blanket at the moment, it’s cold! So put on something warm & comfy (2020 has been the year I embraced sweatpants!) and cuddle up. If you don’t have anyone to cuddle with, remember that plant love is also real love. I REALLY love my plants, so who’s to say that my plants don’t also really love me?? I choose to believe they do, haha. Oh, and also: real cuddles will be making a comeback soon!⁠ Have a nice day!⁠

Hello January!

Happy New Year! This is the first page of my 2021 calendar. A mix of cozy winter items and a positive outlook.⁠
The calendar is sold out (thank you!🙏🏻) but I have lots of other paper-goodies available in my Etsy shop.🛒 Take a look if you like what you see, and want to support a small business. Dutch shops are sadly still closed so I could really use it. Take care⁠💚

Hello Winter!

Today is the first official day of winter (on the Northern hemisphere that is). And although this one will be a little (or a lot) different from other years, there’s still so much to enjoy. For starters: the days will start to get longer again, hurray!! And what about candles, cozy knitwear, yummy comfort food and long winter walks followed by hot drinks? (Mulled wine is my favourite!) Winter can also be a time to recharge, find new inspiration and make plans. Are you as excited for the start of winter as I am? I would love to hear it and why.

Hello Winter!

Today is the first day of winter (if you’re in the Northern hemisphere like me). Soon the days will start to get longer again, but until then I love candles and the pretty Christmas lights everywhere. I also love game nights with mulled wine, staying in and keeping warm with a hot water bottle, drinking tea and reading a book or having a Netflix night. I will try to go outside a lot to go ice skating for example, or have a nice winter walk, preferably in a snow covered landscape (followed by  more mulled wine of course 😉 )

What are some of the things that you love about winter?
