It's always time for tea

April Weekend Loves #3

Happy weekend, everybody! I hope you’re all enjoying your day so far. I’m going to be working on my Elfia costume as the event is next week and I’ve only got half a skirt to wear at the moment.
As always I’ve gathered some favourites to share with you today in my Weekend Loves!

This Video

YES YES YEEEEES! This is such a good video. Spot on, everybody should watch it. So go ahead, watch it, and feel good <3

This Concept

A new restaurant/deli opened in my neighbourhood, where they serve Israeli-style hummus as a dish with lots of toppings and pita bread. Robbert and I went there for lunch a few days back and I developed heart eyes. I already love hummus but this is such a fantastic way to enjoy it! I’ll definitely be returning to this place and I’ll be making and enjoying dishes similar to this at home as well. Do you have anything similar to a hummus-exclusive restaurant where you live?

This Playlist

Sometimes you just want to have something on in the background that won’t distract too much. Like neutral pop music. No? Just me? This playlist is perfect for that; you can just have it on in the background and recognise a song every now and then.

This Skirt

I bought this skirt at Stradivarius in Maastricht last week and I wore it for the first time this week. I styled it with my bee cardigan and some pointy flats in a kind of vintage vibe outfit, very different from what the model’s wearing with it but I love it that way. I was very surprised by the store by the way, a new Stradivarius just opened in Utrecht and I definitely want to go there to explore.

Enjoy your weekend!

April Weekend Loves #2

Happy Easter weekend! How will you be spending these few days? I’m going over to my parents’ house to enjoy lots of good food ­čÖé In case you’re planning to have a really chilled weekend just like me, I’ve got a wonderful suggestion for you this April Weekend Loves.

This Must-Watch

We started watching a new show this week and guys… I’m HOOKED!
“Taboo” is a brand new show that started airing in January, but it’s finished so you’ll be able to binge watch it. And trust me, you will want to. Taboo is set in 1814 London and is centered around James Delaney, who was presumed dead but returns home from Africa after many years to claim his father’s inheritance. Needless to say, people aren’t happy about it, and he becomes hunted by many different parties. James is an intriguing character veiled in mystery, not your typical “good guy”, but one you’ll sympathise with nonetheless.
This is so good. The lead is expertly played by Tom Hardy, and I personally enjoy playing “spot the Game of Thrones actor” in this one. The camerawork is amazing, as are the costumes,┬ádecors and sceneries. It gets a bit brutal at points, so beware if you have trouble watching violence, but it’s well worth a watch.

My Desk Setup & Organisation

You guys know I’m all about boosting that productivity. Work smarter, not harder is my motto and I’m always hungry for ways to improve the way I work!
Being someone who works from home, my workplace is very important to me. Not only is it the place I sit down to get into my workflow and reach the right state of mind, it’s also right in the middle of my living and bedroom. Oh, the joys of living in a tiny studio… This does make me require the space to be as (multi)functional as possible, while also looking aesthetically pleasing.
Right now I’ve gotten my little office corner to a point where I’m really happy with it and it works well for me, so I thought I’d share it with you today!

Spicy Tempeh Noodle Bowl Recipe

Since discovering the amazingness that is tempeh a few weeks back, I’ve been constantly looking for new ways to incorporate it into my diet. This fermented loaf of soy is an incredibly healthy source of protein, and even though some people need a while to get used to the taste, I fell in love with it straigh away. I shared a recipe for an amazing tempeh marinade a while back, and today I’m going to share a different way I like to enjoy it. This is a dish that packs a bit of a punch as it features┬ásambal oelek, an Indonesian chili paste that’s very popular over here in the Netherlands. This spicy tempeh noodle bowl is perfect for the warmer months as it’s quite a light dish.
