Advertorial – Firmoo glasses

Firmoo glassesFirmoo glasses

Do you remember those times that wearing glasses was just not cool? Well that time is long gone. Glasses are the perfect accessories nowadays. Even if you don’t need them for proscription reasons, you could still wear them to make a fashion statement. Firmoo.com is a great place to buy glasses. They have a big selection of great fashionable eyewear plus they are really cheap! The most expensive ones I saw on Firmoo where just $56. That’s pretty cheap isn’t it? When you order the glasses they ask for your prescription information. Most glasses are included in the price, but you can always get extra options. Still not convinced? Firmoo has a great First Pair Free program running. You just need to pay shipping!

Supporting Tom's coffee addiction #1: Homemade Mocha Frappe

Supporting Tom's Coffee Addiction #1: Homemade Mocha Frappe

My boyfriend Tom has one addiction: coffee. Lot’s of coffee. I have to admit he now drinks a lot less because his body didn’t really agree with all the caffeine, but he still really loves it. I don’t do coffee. I’m a tea person. But because I love my boyfriend very much I decided to make him one coffee recipe every week for one year. Starting today. We came up with a great name for this topic on my blog: “Supporting Tom’s coffee addiction”. How appropriate is that? This first homemade mocha frappe was the first thing I made for him and it was a big hit!

Recipe – Tagliatelle with salmon and avocado

Recipe - Tagliatelle with salmon and avocado

This tagliatelle recipe is a new favorite of my boyfriend. He loves avocado and the combination with salmon, chives and red peppers is amazing. Sometimes I make a variation with chicken instead of salmon. It’s a little bit cheaper but just as delicious. I buy my red peppers in bulk at the market when they are cheap and freeze them. They get a little bit softer this way, but they don’t loose taste. A perfect solution!

DIY – How to make pom poms with a pom pom maker

DIY project: How to make pompoms easy and fast with a pom pom maker

I love pom poms but making them can be a real pain. Especially when you need a lot of them. So I bought myself some pom pom makers. They are really cheap but it makes creating pom poms so much easier! No more pushing your yarn through a hole that’s getting smaller and smaller each time you get your yarn through. I feel that these things are a must have for all crafters. I have some crafts for you this week with pom poms so I thought I should do a tutorial first on how to make them with a pom pom maker!

Personal: About my life and being a blogger

Personal: about life and being a blogger

When I started blogging about two years ago, I never imagined this site would be picked up this fast. In just a few months I had more visitors an page views than I thought was possible for me. But it was, and it made me really enthusiastic about this blog. The first 6 months I put up a blog post every single day. I loved it so much and I dreamed about it being my full time job.

Then I got sick. Severe pregnancy nausea. I couldn’t do anything and blogging was my last priority at that time. But I missed it, like I missed out on so many things back then. I’m still at home because now I have instability, again due to my pregnancy. So I’m still not able to do many things. But it’s getting better slowly. And really, my little boy makes it all worth it! He is the best that has ever happened to me. I love my little family!

Now it’s a year since I’ve got sick and stopped blogging regularly. I find it hard to get in the flow again, but I will get there! I want this blog to be a success and I want to keep inspiring you. I have many ideas for crafts, recipes and more. This blog is very important to me, and I promise I will get it back to where it ones was (plus more!).

A few months back I started blogging in Dutch too, but the plugin I used (qTranslate) was slowing my site (much) down, so I decided to go back to English only. If you want to read it in Dutch I suggest you could use Google translate.

Well that’s it for now. I hope you will keep reading my blog in the future and I promise I will be back tomorrow with a new post! XO Wilma

DIY – Christmas tea lights with plaid pattern

DIY project: How to make tea lights with a cute plaid pattern for Christmas! #DIY #Craft #Christmas

Today I have a super fun DIY project for you: Christmas tea lights with a plaid pattern. The nice thing about this tea lights is that if you don’t like the pattern anymore, you can change them very easily. The tea lights are painted with acrylic paint, so you can wash off the paint if you want to. If you want a more permanent option, use ceramic paint that you can bake in the oven at a low temperature. The disadvantage of the latter option is that this type of paint dries much faster, making the plaid effect harder to achieve.

Read on to see how you make this Christmas tea lights with plaid pattern. . .
