Simple pleasures

 

What could be more dainty and frail than a bouquet of lily of the valley flowers? And the smell! It’s one of those times I wish one could communicate a smell through a photograph.

I got this steamer from my little brother for Christmas and I’ve been using it a lot lately. It’s called Lotus Folding Steamer Basket from Joseph Joseph. If you’re into healthy food, I highly recommend you getting one too.
This is a great device for any kitchen! It fits most pans when unfolded, but it’s super easy to store, since it takes no space at all when folded. It has a nice sturdy feel to it and a nice design. I use it to steam vegetables (anything I’d normally boil or pan fry) and fish or meat.

New morning coffee routine

Ever since Hannes got a coffee grinder for his birthday, our life has changed for good! Every morning we can have freshly ground coffee any way we like (normally, we like our coffee black, but recently I started adding some soya milk to mine). What a neat little machine! The only downside to it is the horrible noise it makes any time you use it, which potentially can wake the baby!

And today’s breakfast! Avocado sandwich again, this time with fresh spinach and aged cheddar cheese.

My new shoes from Zespà. They are so comfortable that I can wear them with no socks! That’s very unusual for me with this kind of shoes.

25 flower art work

Hannes has turned 25 a couple of days ago, so now both of us are a quarter of a century old! One of the things he got for his birthday was this flower art work from me. Beautiful, time consuming to create yet fleeting, that is so contemporary!

From my mum he got a new set of satin bed linen:

And of course, we had the obligatory birthday Princess cake!
