JUNE/JULY SELECT



  • Fresh red fruit drinks to match my red sandals & shorts ;)
  • Pieter working on our wooden table for outdoor dining/playing boardames/having bbq's and a whole lot more. I just love having a craftsy boyfriend! 
  • Seriously addicted to makin jars of fresh fruit drinks during these summer days, here I'm makin one with strawberries and pink grapefruit.
      
     
  • Pieter had his birthday in July, but since it was on a weekday we decided to have a small celebration with family during the weekend and what's a party without decorations right?
  • Instead of getting a large cake we opted for blueberry and chocolate chip cupcakes that could stand on the table and everyone could just get whatever they liked, love this self serve cake option haha.
  • Glass jars with strawberries/grapefruit and fresh mint/cucumber for the table, super nice and refreshing when having your birthday on a hawwt day!
 
 
  • After a day of seeking coolness in the forest (check the blogpost here!) we sat down on a terrace and enjoyed a freshly baked bread with tapenade, aioli & herb butter. SO good!
  • My latest OBSESSION!! I've also had a thing for everything scented, the fragrance sticks, scented candles, the scented things you plug into a socket, you name it.. I've tried it. But when walking in to our local interior store (don't do this too often, it always costs us a lot of money going there haha ;) I spotted these scented chip burners and ever since I'm hooked and wanna stash up on all the different fragranced chips ahhh...
  • Later that week it was actually Pieter's birthday and I surprised him with a tiny bday-brunch for the 2 of us. 
 
 
  • Priceless look upon his face opening his card and in complete anticipation what's inside all of those wrappings :)
  • A couple of our neighbours came by later that evening to have a drink and celebrate so I made a small puff pastry pie with dark chocolate, vanilla cream and fresh strawberries. It eats VERY messy, but boy does it taste GOOD.
  • Pie & Presents!
 
 
  • The fun thing when it's your birthday when you're a kid, is choosing what to have for diner (ahhh the power in deciding what you wanted to eat, good times..) and even though we live on our own and ofcourse choose everyday what we want to eat, we normally try to eat balanced, lots of veggies and keep it a bit healthy, (still has to be very tasty don't get me wrong! ;) So when I asked Pieter what he wanted for his birthday he answered with a loud PIZZAAAHH!
  • Awesomely shaped hedges in the openlucht museum.
  • Everything in the 'open air museum' is authentic or recreated as it used to be years ago, they also had a tiny little shopping lane with this super cute grocery store sign!
 
 
  • Just another random day in the museum, milking a plastic cow, no bigie... (!!!)
  • No matter where we go, or how spectacular the thing is we're seeing, I'm always drawn towards all the birds flying/hopping around and loose sight of everything else around haha. (so yes, I kinda like birds, with them being tattooed all over my arm and such ;)
  • If we ever own a garden this size (totally realistic) I would copy this look exactly!
 
 
  • Had so much fun trying out all the old Dutch games kids used to do years ago.
  • Denim dungarees where NOT a good fashion choice on a hawt day, ahhh I longed for a pair of shorts that day haha ;)
  • Bunny-model Zoef having a casual 'O hey, there you are.. Hiii!' kinda moment in our living room.

 
LOTS OF LOVE FOR YOU GUYS,
KISSES DAPHNE
