At the end of last year I was observing my shopping habits and realised that whenever I shop, I shop for one main thing: comfort. Whether it’s a cookbook or an eyeshadow, it’s still the same. Here’s what’s making me comfortable this month.
The end of the year is just around the corner, can you believe it? I think 2016 was the fastest year in the history – I experienced many bad moments as well as great ones. You can’t really separate those two, because without each other I wouldn’t have a breakthrough. I hope to inspire you with some of them to have one for yourself in 2017.
I’m a big fan of coffee and tea (in no particular order) and when I saw this year’s Whittard’s holiday collection, my heart sank. Not only the boxes and packaging looks super-festive, but the selected flavours and collections are exactly what you need for cold winter days. (Or at least I do.)
My children’s book The Girl Who Wanted to Catch a Cloud in a Marmalade Jar is coming out on 20 April 2017. I talk about it everywhere I can and with whoever wants to listen – and I’m nicely surprised that people are not only interested, but they want to know more.

Roald Dahl is one of my favourite authors who never fails to inspire me. This summer I visited his museum in Great Missenden and learnt a lot of interesting, unimportant facts about him.

Minimalist is a person who likes to own little possessions. If you know something about me, you probably know I’ve been one for the past 5 years. In fact, I like to call myself a practical minimalist. What do I mean by that? Well, I simply don’t own anything that’s not practical. Which means I only own […]
My age might say I’m an adult, but I’m still a child at the heart. Especially when it comes to children’s books. Since I’ve started working again on my book The Girl Who Wanted to Catch a Cloud in a Marmalade Jar just three weeks ago, I’ve decided to buy a bunch of children’s books. I wanted […]
Business trips are a part of our relationship. Andrej travels a lot during the year, usually 3-4 times, anywhere between 3-6 weeks. Many people have asked us how we make it work. How come that even when he’s 4 months of the year away, we are still in a relationship that makes us happy? Read more: #6 How […]
