As I told you earlier, I'm having a "detox" week which ended yesterday. It is a pretty simple treatment I think anyone can do! If you're curious, here's what to do:
Drink 1 Liter of cloudy apple juice for 5 days, one liter each day. You can just continue eating like you always do. At day 6 you'll start with a breakfast of non fat yoghurt & fruit. For lunch you can have some vegetables with rice. From 2 pm, you'll stay sober. You can have tea or water as much as you like.
At 4 pm you'll make a drink of 400 ml of water, the juice of one lemon & 60 grams of Epsom
salts (in Dutch: Bitterzout of Engelszout) and you put it in the fridge. Drink 100 ml at 6 pm & then at 8 pm. After each drink you'll take a glass of water. At 10 pm, make a drink out of 100 ml of olive oil & the juice of one grapefruit and drink up! Lay down for 20 minutes with a hot water bottle for your belly & then go to sleep.
In the morning, at 7 am you'll take 100 ml of the first drink & again at 8 am. Now you're done and at 10 am you can start eating (fruits etc). This treatment is especially good for cleaning your gall bladder. My advice is to stay home when you're at the end of the detox treatment, you can get a little sick. But this is only for one day so personally I could live with that. Off course this is just one of many ways to detox your body but this was the first one for me so I wanted to let you know how I did it! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Today I'm in love with the style of Caroline Gomez. I discovered her website a little while ago & love, love, love the photography, fresh colours & simplicity! Caroline is a designer who works with wood, ceramics, textile & more. I really like the wooden platters she makes... Visit her website + webshop here & her blog here. Enjoy!
A while ago I bought this pink vest at the thrift shop. It's not really my style but I love the colour & texture so I made a little pillow case out of it! The poster was a gift in the latest Flow issue (love this magazine!!). The chair I got from a sweet friend... Thanks Ineke! I hope you are having a good & relaxing weekend? I had a girls night out which I'm still recovering from ;) This week I will start with a detox treatment which I tell you more about later. Nothing serious though, just trying to be healthy (aren't we all)!
When we first moved into this home I was in a little bit of a hurry getting everything finished. I picked out some nice wallpaper & was pretty happy with the improvement of some of the rooms (from all kinds of strange colours to a lot of white!). But you know the drill... Once you start blogging & pinning you'll probably want to change it al over again! The same goes for me and a few weeks ago I decided it was time to give our guest room a little make over! I removed the wallpaper, added even more white and made some new pillow covers with the blankets my mom collected for me. I love the combination of the white & the bright colours... I think this room is ready for a sleep-over!
The lucky winner of the Kleur op Tafel Give Away is Anneke from the blog Muy Bien! Congrats Anneke! You chose the white Air Vase set which I totally understand... It's beautiful! Please send me your address & I will make sure the Air Vase will come your way!

I wish I could give all of you an Air Vase... And off course I want to thank Titia of the lovely webshop Kleur op Tafel for making this possible!

I found these beautiful images on the blog Holmberg and just love the idea of using the Air Vase as a lampshade! You can still join the Give Away hosted by Kleur op Tafel until tomorrow May 5th!! Click here to go to the Give Away. Tomorrow I will pick the lucky winner!
A couple of "Happy Home" shots with my new Primark bags, some fresh flowers, Def (my sweet white cat), lovely new cups from Flying Tiger and my black & white bedroom... Thanks for following my blog and leaving all kinds of sweet messages!! Have a great weekend!
Have you seen the latest issue of the online magazine "Oh Marie"? I love it, especially since I had the honor of making a DIY for this issue! Marlous, the founder of Oh Marie & blogger (Planet Fur), contacted me a while ago with the question if I would like to contribute to the "Ahoy Marie" issue. Well, I made up my mind pretty quick because I'm a huge fan of this magazine! I had a lot of fun working on this DIY project, making pillows out of insulation foil. If you want to see the complete article click here. There's so much more to see in this lovely issue...
Today I'm happy to introduce to you a Give Away by Kleur op Tafel! The name of this lovely webshop speaks for itself, let's put some "color on the table"! Kleur op Tafel is a Belgian webshop with "Table Fashion". Titia Olieman, the owner of this webshop, says so herself: "My morning mood disappears immediately when I see a colorful decorated breakfast table!". I couldn't agree more Titia! Kleur op Tafel offers colorful, practicle & exclusive products which give your table an instant color boost! I made a little collage of some of my personal favorite brands & products!
Kleur op Tafel is giving away the beautiful Air Vase! You'll get a set of 3 Air Vases & you can decide which color you like! Click here to see your options. Some images to get inspired:
Last week I received a package from Paqhuis. I was one of the lucky winners of the Give Away by Lisanne van de Klift! She organized a Give Away together with the lovely brand Paqhuis. This brand is an initiative by two friends Karlijn & Femke. These girls design their own prints and products which are very easy to love! I won some beautiful postcards, three printed notebooks and three super cute kraft bags.... Thanks so much Lisanne, Karlijn & Femke!!! Lisanne already organized a new Give Away (click here)! I hope you all had a lovely weekend! Mine was great and a little bit lazy....
This weekend I finished my new & improved bedroom wall! I collected some of my favorite black & white pictures via Pinterest and made my own photo collage with it! I also used a couple of MDF panels and painted them in black before I glued the prints on them. This way you'll get a subtle 3D effect! I'm so happy with the result, now I can stare at these beautiful images every night before I fall asleep... Have a good week!!
Last week I received a lovely package from Marieke (Een Dotje Wat) who joined "Het Reizend Kringloopgezelschap" from the fabulous online magazine "Oh Marie". Het Reizend Kringloopgezelschap translated, is kind of like "The Travelling Thriftshop Society". The founder of Oh Marie started this by giving out a couple of unique Thrift Shop items at the launch of the first Oh Marie Magazine. The Thrift Shop items travel from one place to another. Isn't that the greatest idea ever? Oh Marie is a new online magazine about photography, DIY, styling & vintage with a twist! Click here to see the latest issue. The oriental coaster was wrapped in a beautiful hand painted newspaper which I just had to use for this picture! I made a still with some of my latest Thrift Shop finds which match perfectly with the coaster!
Vorige week ontving ik een pakketje van Marieke van het blog Een Dotje Wat. Zij deed mee aan "Het Reizend Kringloopgezelschap" dat een initiatief is van Marlous. Je kent haar vast wel van "Planet Fur" of van het geweldige online magazine "Oh Marie". Oh Marie is een tweetalig online magazine dat gaat over fotografie, DIY, styling & vintage met een twist!
Het Reizend Kringloopgezelschap is begonnen bij de lancering van Oh Marie Magazine. Hier zijn verschillende kringloop vondsten uitgedeeld en die reizen nu van het ene plekje naar het andere. Degene die hier aan meedoet maakt een mooie foto van het item en stuurt dit uiteindelijk weer door naar de volgende kringloop liefhebber! Ik vind het een fantastisch idee! Marieke stuurde mij de Oriëntaalse onderzetter. Ik heb deze gecombineerd met mijn laatste kringloop schatten die mooi matchen met het onderzettertje! Het handgeschilderde krantenpapier moest ik gebruiken! Hiermee was de onderzetter ingepakt! Ik ben nog steeds benieuwd of Marieke dit zelf heeft beschilderd!!
Wil jij meedoen aan Het Reizend Kringloopgezelschap? Laat dit dan weten via een reactie op dit bericht of mail me via firstname.lastname@example.org!
