I am about to tell you how my first vanlife experience was, but actually this is not the real truth, my first vanlife experience wasn’t this year, it goes back to 2014, were my husband, at that time boyfriend and soon to be fiancé, and I, booked a camping car at the Ile de la Réunion. You have to know that at the Réunion you can do wild camping, and that the people there are not used to see tourists traveling in vans. It was a great during day, but when it came to find a place to camp and sleep I got so nervous every night. I was afraid that someone would break into our van and rob us or harm us. So I never really slept during the whole 11 day trip. The van was also very old and not comfy at all. Don’t misunderstand me, the island was beautiful and I have seen many breath taking places but I thought that vanlife just wasn’t a thing for me. Well, only fools don’t make up their mind.Continue reading “My first vanlife experience”
Luxembourg may be a small country, sometimes we tend to wait for the new trends to be present on our territory, but I never heard someone complaining that he didn’t find a restaurant. We are spoiled with restaurants and most of them didn’t disappoint me. I love to test new places and new food. That’s why I went to the “Au P’Tit Max” in Luxembourg Kirchberg to find out if it is worth a visit.Continue reading “WHERE TO EAT IN LUXEMBOURG? AU P’TIT MAX KIRCHBERG REVIEW”
I tried different brands of natural and also herbal hair care products, some of them were PR gifts and some of them were store-bought. They all have in commun that they are silicon free and sulfate free.
I needed to change my hair care products because I didn’t like the way my hair felt with my basic shampoo. I used to buy Schauma by Schwarzkopf because it was very cheap and for many years it suited my needs very well. But habits change and your hair changes as well with time and years sou I was looking for something more appropriate. Continue reading “I TRIED NATURAL HAIR CARE. HERE ARE MY TOPS AND FLOPS.”
You may have noticed that since I started my diet, which is not really a diet but more a change of my nutrition, I cook my lunch and snacks at home and bring them to work. For the transport I used old takeaway containers, which are not great for the reuse or use in the dishwasher. So it was absolutely convenient when the brand BergHOFF asked me to collaboration with them. They sent me the newest addition to their LEO collection, the to-go collection products. I got the bento box, the dual lunch pot, the travel flatware set, the water bottle and the personalized travel mug with my name on it. They now have this temporary offer, where if you buy the BergHOFF travel mug, you get it pimped for free with whatever text you want.
Since I stared to live more consciously, I try to make as little waste as possible and it is important to purchase products that are qualitative and don’t break quickly. The quality is very important but I have to admit that I also appreciate an attractive design. For me, the LEO on-the-go collection combines quality, functionality and design.
The design of these BergHOFF products inspired me to create the following recipes:
Same procedure as every year! With my husband and a bunch of friends we flew to Mallorca for two weeks during August. I tried to resume all the cool stuff we did and created a little travel guide. This guide is for the people who enjoy the sweet things of life, like procrastinating on the beach, having a nice meal and cocktails with friends and staying in fabulous places. If you are the “I need an adrenaline rush everyday” kind of person, this guide is not for you. If you are that kind of person you probably don’t enjoy my blog…
There are 3 categories in my guide, where to stay, eat and what to do: Continue reading “MALLORCA TRAVEL GUIDE – SWEET FARNIENTE”
Since a few month, Cactus is running its #bewosst campagne promoting their sustainable, organic products. Their PR team sends luxembourgish bloggers products of their organic range to test and talk about. For the luxembourgish National Day, which is the 23rd of June, we celebrate our Grand-Duke Henri’s Birthday (even if he was born in April…) and for this occasion Cactus came up with another cool idea. Bloggers and foodies are invited to create a national dish, with or without a little twist and post it on their blog or social media with the hashtag #granddukesbirthdaymeal and #cactuslu. If you know me a little, you know that I love challenges, so I came up with the idea to cook Kniddelen (mix of flour, water, milk and eggs poured spoon by spoon in boiling water) with arrabiata sauce and to decorate it with a light blue hortensia to reproduce the national flag on a plate.

Strawberry season has finally arrived and I am proud to announce that you can find my new recipe in the summer edition of KACHEN MAGAZINE, go check out their website for many other cool recipes. I got the chance to write a recipe for this edition trough the blog award that I won back in October 2017. This recipe contains my favourite things: strawberries + margaritas. I love doing margaritas in summer but I wanted to do a special version for the magazine and I ended up mixing it with rhubarb, which is a perfect combo. Also a special thanks to Villeroy & Boch for the Brindille plates and glasses!
Spring isn’t there yet but all I can think of is my summer trip to Mallorca. I see myself in the pool with a self-made strawberry margarita reading a good book in my brand new bikini. I can also see my sparkling future sandals and a cute off shoulder dress in a vibrant color. I have a gift, yes indeed, I can see the future! Believe me, this is going to happen. I saw a lot of fresh stuff on my favourite shopping sites and since people ask me on Instagram where I buy my clothes and accessories, I thought I coul write a blog post about it. If these things won’t be sold out until I buy them, you will se me in my future pics wearing them.
What do you think about infused water? I find it very refreshing and it’s a great way to drink more water. I mean water is quite boring but if you pimp it with fruit and vegetables you can make healthy cocktails in just a few minutes. SodaStream sent me recently their Sodastream Spirit machine to test it and I have to say that it’s a real plus in my kitchen. Continue reading “SODASTREAM INFUSED WATER RECIPES”
I hate rain, I bet you feel the same! If you live in Luxembourg like me, you noticed that the sun is on vacation and it won’t come back any time soon. This is why I wrote a survival guide for rainy days in form of a list and here we go:
