Some things I liked this week …


We left our beautiful renovated apartment in Amsterdam and arrived safely home in Singapore … my boys were great during the 12 hour flight and I am proud how easily and quickly they adjust to the different environments. Vacation in the Netherlands was great although it didn’t feel like a real vacation … sounds a bit spoiled I know but when you go back to your own house you do all the things you normally would do too. I even worked quite a bit and met many people for future blog plans. So time to book a long weekend to some of the nice beaches here in Asia and give myself a couple of days of well-deserved rest 🙂 ! No just kidding I will be working full time as of next week and bring you many nice things I brought back with me. Let’s start with some weekend links:

Loving these bow pouches for girls too …

Liking Cats + Fonts

How to make anything out of pompoms

Interested in Lot’s of Lotta


Are your kids ready for winter? Stella is!

Jigsaw puzzle shoes!

I agree … Gingham + Dip Dye = Fabulous!

Stripes are always good.

I’m loving these giant paper peony piñatas … and you can make them too!

How cute are these happy face printables!

She always brings color, fun and happiness to the blogosphere.


These please!

Thank you FLOW magazine!

– Enjoy your weekend and hope to see you back next week when I will be sharing images of our renovated apartment in AMsterdam! Irene xoxo –
