New Ikea

I’m still sorting through my Copenhagen photo’s. So to tie you over, here’s my top 5 picks from the new items at Ikea (Netherlands at least). In no particular order.

Raskog trolley in turqoise. It has that great retro industrial feel.

PS Piedestal for plants. Ideal for my tiny apartment, to add a little greenery. Seriously considering buying one.


Frasera whiskey glass. I don’t like whiskey at all, but i suppose gin would taste great in a glass like this.


PS cupboard. I lurve this, no further explanation needed.


Vandring Igelkott squeeky hedgehog. At 30 i’m still a sucker for stuffed animals. Especiallu squeeky ones. Thankfully i can keep myself from actually buying them.


Best faux-70’s tv or films

Since i’m busy writing my script, i only have very little time to blog. That’s where the lists come in handy.

Still from The Ice Storm

Today, a list of my favourite fake 70’s tv-shows or films. What are your favourites?

  • That 70’s Show
  • Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas
  • The Ice Storm
  • Almost Famous
  • Starsky & Hutch

I’ve never seen Dazed&Confused, but it’s definately on my to-see-list.


I’ve been thinking about regular feature posts. I sometimes do ‘i love-posts’, or random stuff not really related to this blog’s theme (Russian Roulette). My problem is that i’m lazy. Too lazy to blog, really. So another feature would have to be something simple, that doesn’t take me a lot of time. And now i’ve finally got it: lists. I love keeping listst and reading other people’s lists, and they’re a good conversation starter.

So here’s my first list, inspired by my luch today: my 5 favourite grilled sandwiches (or tosti’s as we call them in the Netherlands)

  • 30+ Gouda cheese and ham, with ketchup and Italian dried herbs
  • 30+ Gouda cheese with French mustard (no wait, i’m currently enjoying some from Ikea, so that would be Swedish mustard?)
  • sliced chicken or turkey meat with peanut butter
  • cream cheese with pesto and ham
  • sliced chicken or turkey with sliced tomato, pesto, pinetree seeds and rocket salad
