BLONDIES

   



Ofcourse I had to do some baking this last week (when I get stressed, I BAKE :) Half of the time I don't even bother eating it (which my boyfriend and close friends don't mind at-all ) but the mixing and chopping, watching it rise in the oven, has a real soothing and calming thing to it.

So with all the 'this-is-the-last-week-we're-living-in-our-old-home' stress (I get sentimental with change, and moving is a big change I tall ya!) I tried out to make Blondies, which is Brownies but with white chocolate. I used this recipe and added some chopped up dark chocolate and pecan nutts. It turned out to be more cake like and not the chewy 'brownie' like structure I was hoping for. It was nice, but it was no Blondie! So if you have a good Blondie recipe that has that chewy rich taste to PLEASE DON'T HESITATE to share it with me :)

SUNDAY SELECT (ONCE AGAIN ON A MONDAY ;)

  



  • Feeling silly the last evening in our old house after a whole day of packing and moving, more packing and a whole lot more moving.
  • This Friday we went shopping for bathroom tiles and as we stepped out of the car in front of the store, there was a little pond with these gorgeous black swans right across from it. Couldn't resist and take a few pictures, I mean look at those curly feathers and shiny black coat. Beautiful!
  • Mozzerella, red onion and tomato pizza. YUMMM :)
  • Pieter through our new stairs.

How was your weekend guys? Mine was filled with moving all our stuff from our old home, to our new home and a lot of stuff to my parents' house where we're staying at the moment untill our new house is ready for decorating ;) (yup, still loooaaads that needs to be done..) Feels kinda strange being back at my parents after 5 years, but it's only for about 5 weeks and is actually a lot more fun without the rules and regulations hihi..

Tomorrow we're having a night off from all the home improvement + diy'ing, we have tickets for the theatre. Cabaret and music for the night and being able to wear my normal clothes again (the ones I actually DO MIND getting paint stains on ;) sounds reaalll gooood at the moment!


Have a wonderful week everyone!

WEARING MY LEOPARD

   

leather jacket - Vero Moda (old collection) // blouse - Mango // leopard jeans + boots - Zara // scarf - HEMA


Right in between going to the bank for an adress change (who knew it could be so difficult...) looking for tiles, buying a floor and changing in to my painting-clothes, we were able to snap some outfit shots.

I bought these pants about 2 weeks ago and kinda wished I bought a smaller size, would have prefered them a bit more snug. But never the less I luvvv the print + the studs (on front AND back!)  and keep singing LMFAO songs all day long. Win/Win if you ask me ;)

SUNDAY SELECT

         


  • Greek yoghurt, pear, pecan nuts and honey. Delicious!
  • The beautiful orchid we got from the building company and was there when we first entered our home this last friday.
  • Also one of our friends drove by eeeeaarly that morning to drop a very sweet card in our mailbox. Such a nice surprise!!
  • Treating myself to something yummm after a hard day of work.
  • I've been having a very soar throat these past few days and nothing is as nice as a cup of hot green tea with some honey in it to sooth it all.
  • Boxes boxes and more boxes.... As I'm typing this blogpost I should actually be packing all of our stuff in boxes but no matter how much I pack, it still feels like I'm not even halfway there. I'd better get on it again :)  


Let me know how your weekend has been and what you've been up to.

KEEPING YOU UPDATED

  



YAAAAYYYY, we finally got the key to our house!!! I just wanted to give you a quick glimpse in to our new home. As you can see there is still A LOT that has to be done, but I already think it's the perrrtiest house in the world :D hihihi


  1. Our garden doors and large window on the side of the house.
  2. The stairs, (soon to be) kitchen and (soon to be) downstairs toilet.
  3. Our first plant in our new home, let's hope I can take good care of it so it will still be pretty when we move in ;)
  4. Stairs to the first floor and stairs to the attic.
  5. The window seat in our bedroom, I've wanted one of those ever since I started watching Friends (or maybe even Blossom wayyyy back in the day..)  anywayzz, I can picture myself snuggling up here with way to many pillows staring out the window for hours <3


I will keep you updated on everything house-related as much as I can and hopefully be able to do some outfit pics inbetween. However please bear with me as I won't be able to post as often these next few weeks hopefully you'll understand.

For now I'm wishing you an amazing weekend, have loads of fun!!!! I'm gonna change in to my 'these clothes can get dirty' gear and start DIY'ing (different kind this time though ;)


LOTS OF LOVE, DAPHNE

PSYCHEDELIC PANTS

    

pants + heels - Zara // t-shirt + necklace - H&M // jacket - Acne // ring - Monki


Had a crush on these pants from the moment I saw them in Zara's November lookbook. After I've heard some bad things about the fit it kinda put me off from ordering them online, but when I found them in the store this last friday I definitely wanted to give them a try and find out for myself. I am soooo glad that I did! They fit like a glove and even though the boy thinks they're weird looking psychedelic pants, it does not stop me from loving it 100%!! Sometimes the boys just don't get us ;)

I LOVE ME SOME PARKA

  

parka - G-Star // striped top + skirt - COS // ankle boots - Zara // belt - vintage // cap - Truck Brand


Finally found myself a warm parka with a great fit. I got this warm new friend about two weeks ago and have been wearing it ever since, might even be the best jacket I've ever owned! I knew I wanted an army green one, but it was the faux fur trim on the hood that won me over <3
