Bedroom makeover with Photowall

When I got the change to review the Photowall wallpaper, I immediately knew which room I wanted to tackle. My parents live in a beautiful old farmhouse and one of their spare bedrooms really needed a makeover. Well, to be honest: they just never finished it. When my grandparents bought a new bed my parents placed the old one in their (half finished) spare bedroom, and that was it. I thought it would be a great idea to find a nice wallpaper for this room to update the look of the bed. Also, I do love the reclaimed wood cabinets, but the fact that the whole room isn’t finished yet just makes it look old (not in a good way).

My parents choose this beautiful patterned wallpaper with large florals from Photowall (Obviously Pink 24A). We got the premium wallpaper with the tool set. Everything you need is in the tool set. The only thing we were missing was a stick to stir the wallpaper glue. The glue was amazing by the way, the wallpaper is really thick and heavy, so we where a little bit afraid that it would come right off. But it worked perfectly!

Because the wallpaper is so heavy we did run into a few things that we would do different next time. First: There is this piece you have to cut of after the glue has dried. I think I would cut off that piece before gluing it down next time. As you can see our walls have an angle. We tried to just glue the paper down en cut it off later. That was a giant fail. It was way to heavy to do it that way, it came right down. This makes it a little bit trickier to glue down walls that aren’t rectangles.

Photowall is not cheap, actually it’s quite expensive. Do I think it’s worth it? Well yes, I absolutely do! The wallpaper goes on smoother than any other wallpaper we ever tried before, and it looks so luxurious! They have the most beautiful patterns and images to choose from, so there will be something for everyone. If you want something special, that looks high end and are willing to spend some money this wallpaper is for you!

Recipe – Sweet and spicy Sambal Badjak

Recipe - Sweet and spicy Sambal BadjakRecipe - Sweet and spicy Sambal Badjak I love a little bit of spice to my food but with a 3 year old I can’t just spice up every dish. Sambal is a great way to add a little bit of spice to individual dishes. It’s an Indonesian sauce and widely available here in the Netherlands. It tastes great as a sauce with meat or use it to marinade for example chicken. Delicious! There are many different kinds of sambal but the store bought variants are by far not as tasty as homemade sambal. The homemade Sambal Badjak recipe that I’m sharing with you today has many layers of sweet, sour and  spicey. Store bought sambal here in the Netherlands mostly tastes sour and spicy. So if you want to try this delicious spicy sauce I really recommend making your own! Read More »


DIY – Super easy bohemian flip flops makeover

DIY - super easy bohemian flip flop makeover

These bohemian are an absolute must have for this summer. They are super easy to make but are so much prettier than simple store bought flip flops! You can use any ribbon you like for this project, as long as it’s not wider than 1/2 inch or 1,25 cm. For the flip flops I used a pair with a nice sturdy sole instead of a rubber sole. This makes your flip flops look a lot nicer and more like sandals. But it’s all up to you! Read More »

How to grow ginger from a store bought ginger rootI love to have some fresh ginger lying around. This delicious root is great in many dishes (like sambal!) and of course in tea. Nothing beats ginger tea when you feel under the weather! Ginger is easy to come by where I live, but I just love to grow my own food.

DIY – Sunburst mirrors (from disposable cutlery!)

A super pretty sunburst mirror created with disposable plastic cutlery! A super pretty sunburst mirror created with disposable plastic cutlery!I love mirrors. Not because I feel the need to look in it all day long, but because they come in so many pretty designs. They also make a room look bigger, so that’s a big plus too! I already have a large collection of mirrors but there was one in particular that I still wanted: a sunburst mirror.

I fall in love every time I see them on Pinterest. But unfortunately they are really expensive and I never see them in thrift stores. So for a while now, I was thinking about doing a great DIY version of a sunburst mirror. And when I saw this plastic silver cutlery set I knew it would work for this project. This sunburst mirror is super easy to make and really budget friendly. But the most important is that it looks absolutely amazing! Read More »

Recipe – Goat yogurt bark with blueberries and almonds

I love goat yogurt and so I eat it almost everyday for breakfast. My body doesn’t cope well with cow milk and for me goat yogurt is a good alternative for normal yogurt. To be honest, I even like it better. Unfortunately not everything is that easy to replace. Yogurt ice cream for instants is almost always made with cow milk. So I thought it would be fun to make my own yogurt ice cream, but now with goat yogurt. It became this amazing and delicious goat yogurt bark with strawberries, blueberries and almonds. Super easy to make and you don’t even need an ice machine! Read More »
