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.


Coconut Records

Just found this video at Skunkboy Creatures and love it. I don’t know what the hell it’s about, i don’t follow the narrative at all. But it’s two of my favourite actors (Kirsten Dunst and Jason Schwartzman) and it has a lovely retro feel to it. And don’t be alarmed, the first minute or so is actually silent, i think the music starts at around 1.12.

A short update on my last post. I just have to share because this is to brilliant not to (How about orange).

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

my blogroll: some link love

At the right hand side of this blog, you’ll find clickable jpegs to all the blogs i love. My weekly reads. I recently removed some of them, because those blogs had changed and i found them less interesting than before. Let me tell you why i love these blogs, and be sure to check them out yourself.

Smile and wave: great DIY tutorials, a lot of inspiration for interior decorating (if you like vintage and retro), and beautiful photography. Like in this post; just snapshots of everyday life.

Mucho mucho bueno bueno: i love these girls’ style, i wish i was as cool as they are. Sometimes they have cool DIY tutorials, and they sell beautiful necklaces. Also, they have the coolest friends, like photographer Lonnie Webb who shoots the awesomest photo’s of these very photogenic sisters. Lately the boyfriend of one of them has been sharing fun facts, which are actually quite interesting, like this one about Kermit the Frog :).

A beautiful mess: this blog is full of great tutorials, delicious recipes and beautiful photography of interior design. Lately they’ve been sharing usefull tips on how tot take better photo’s, like this one. But be warned: there’s an overload of bright colors, bold fonts and ‘cute outfits’. If you like your style a little more laid back like i do, you might want to put on a pair of sunglasses before heading over there.

Poppytalk handmade: a non stop source of inspiration for DIY projects, graphic design, interior design and recipes. It’s more like a magazine than like a blog, with contributions from all over the world. I recently loved this post.

My girl thursday: fun thrifted finds, tutorials and very witty writing.

How about orange: a bit like Poppytalk, a lot of DIY tutorials and graphic design. They recently shared a link to the best amigurumi pattern website ever.

The Dainty Squid: the best thrifting, nature photography and witty writing. My favourite blog right now.

One sheepish girl: all about knitting and crocheting. Also, she’s blogging for confidence, which is very motivating if you want to change things yourself.

Bleubird Vintage: beautiful photography (like this post) and a lot of inspiration for interior decorating. Written by miss James, whose husband Aubrey McCoy is a very talented photographer himself.

the tackiest video of the 70s

Saw this on tv the other night, and don’t know whether to laugh or to cry…

I have to say, Cliff’s song Wired for Sound is far worse, but from 1981, so not 70s style. Let’s face it: the 80s gave birth to far worse things than the 70s. Think Wham, think… No, just Wham. That says it all 😉

Russian Roulette: tomboy style from the 70s

Hi there

Just some random link love for you today. This is a blog that i can browse for hours on end. I love the outfits, the photo’s, and the inspirational women on it. It’s called Tomboy Style. I always browse the 70s categorie (duh), but you can find just about every decade from the 20th century. Warning: you’ll get lost in there!
