Summertime, making plans for the coming season
 
IMG_5493.jpg

The summer has started, I love this quiet time of the year. In the summertime the city is deserted, Social Media is flooded with pictures of swimming pools, beaches and exciting places. We are not going on a vacation yet, so I am using this time to recharge, make new plans for the coming season and finish some of my own neglected projects. I have been working on something very exciting, I will tell you more soon!

Help in the office

Since this month I have an intern, she comes every Wednesday. She is great! I teach her things and I also learn from her, she knows a lot of things that I didn't even know. She helps me with my photography projects and also with Social Media marketing. You can follow her on Instagram.

Other Summertime Projects

Still some things to do this month. I have been asked by a magazine for young parents to share my photos in their issue. This year I also started blogging for Greenhouse blog, a Dutch blog about flowers and plants. It is a very nice platform and I am so happy to write for them.

My friends garden

In the meantime I am enjoying the summer at home. Going to the beach or visiting my friend's garden. She has a lovely plot filled with vegetables, herbs and flowers. Last time when I visited her, we had a picnic together with another friend of ours. We talked about food, gardening and life in general, we had a great time. Always enjoy these special moments with friends!

Summertime - picnic

A picnic with homemade treats is alway a good idea :-)

Summertime - Garden plot

Garden vibes, so many flowers, bees and birds. What a great place to be.

summertime - Dahlia

I took home some of the pretty Dahlias.

I almost didn't have enough bottles to put them in.

Wishing you all a beautiful summer!

These couple of months have been a roller coaster. We moved during the summer which was quite an undertaking.  In the meantime I got nominated for the Amara Interior Blog Awards in the category Best European Blog. And last but not least for september I won the #styleatmine challenge of {at}mine in collaboration with Urban Jungle Bloggers and chose one of the beautiful botanical posters from My Deer Artshop.  I am going to find a nice place for it in my home and show it to you in another post.

Styling challenge & nominated

I am so grateful and honored with my nomination* for IBA15 and winning the #styleatmine challenge! This is giving me an extra boost to continue with styling, photography and blogging with extra confidence.

It is a good way to start this new season. I love autumn and it gives me inspiration, the colors and the hazy mornings. I am going to work on some new projects the coming months and even for the next year. Life is good.

I was so surprised and excited when I received an email a month ago that my blog has been nominated for the Amara Interior Blog Awards!

It has been a little quiet on the blog, we just moved (more about that later in another post) and as you can understand I am still busy getting everything into place. I just unpacked my computer an hour ago!

I would be really grateful if you vote for my blog, I still can't believe it, I am so honored. Thank you!
