Leap Year!

I feel so guilty for leaving my blog bare for quite a while, I am so sorry dear readers. But I am still here, just not as busy writing as I have before. The good news (I hope) is that I post photos of my styling on instagram so do give it a visit for quick inspirations.

Finally, I am thankful that I get to be in another leap year, marked by today, 29th February 2016 🙂

I hope you’ll have a sensational week, month and year ahead! X

Weekend Wanderings: Kuala Lumpur

Ahh weekend…. I hope everyone is doing fabulously wherever you may be. For a change I had myself unshackled from my weekly routine of painting the room and got myself to Kuala Lumpur for a lovely stroll around the Central Market area.

It is always great to be able to play tourist in your own home city, discovering and rediscovering places that are unknown to you or that you may have forgotten after so long a hiatus.

The best thing about today was that I discovered an old colonial square right in the middle of KL which I never knew existed. I was as happy as I was excited because I’ve been to Central Market many times in my life but never have I come across this small pocket of wonder…

If you’re ever in KL, please do away with your maps and just wander around the city aimlessly (unless you consider wandering around aimlessly an aim in itself); you’d be surprised by all the ‘unchartered’ gems you will find scattered around the city. Try it!

Central Market- where you can find local arts and craft. A must go venue for your souvenirs.

The square I never knew existed. I am delighted to see old colonial buildings still standing amidst the more cosmopolitan and taller offices.

My all time favourite cake! The Chocolate Berry Cheesecake. You can find these heavenly treats at Secret Recipe.

Beautiful KL… I shall come back to you for more strolls and pictures with cake treats in between soon! 🙂

New York is here!

Just a little update: our New York map is here! Please feel free to check it out on my webshop. I am super chuffed for the new map addition! I’ve never been to New York, but it has always been in my list of countries to visit. One of the reasons why I drew it up is because I wanted to visualise travelling to the beautiful metropolitan.

Do you have a favourite city you’d like to see as a map poster? Please share with me; I’d really love to know 🙂

I’m Back!

Hello everyone! Sincere apologies for my hiatus. Truth is I fell ill the past two weeks and was hospitalised for a few days. I spent another few days recuperating at home but now I am up and running with my interior projects! I wish to share with you what I’ve been working on while I was away. Just a sneak preview of what’s coming to you soon 🙂 Can you guess which city this is?

I hope you like what you see here. Get excited because I know I am! Be well everyone X

 

Slapen in Het Bos

After a long restful weekend, I am right back in the mood for planning future trips. Now this one looks like a real score for when I return to the Netherlands, perfect for that much needed peaceful immersion with nature. This cosy Slapen in Het Bos cabin can be found in Apeldoorn, about 90km east of Amsterdam. What I love most about this cabin is its ordinary appearance from the outside and how it welcomes you with its surprisingly modern decor, its humble yet ostentatiously minimalistic interior. I am definitely penning this down in my to-visit list!
