A Perfect Saturday Night

Yesterday evening my friend came over for a girl's night...not out, but on the couch in our sweatpants with two great chickflicks and some chocolate fondue =)

As there was many fruit left i made some delicious smoothies this morning for me and my little girl.


Nailpolish Stash

My humble collection of nailpolishes..a total of 35 pieces =)
I guess it could be worse, doesn't it?
Have to say i actually used every single piece of it, but my favourites will be my light pink Essie polish, the nude colour besides it, the bright pink Collistar one, the mint green one from Barry M and the chocolate brown one from E.L.F.

Mijn bescheiden collectie nagellakjes..een totaal van 35 stuks =)
Volgens mij kan het erger, of niet?
Ik moet zeggen dat ik ze stuk voor stuk een keertje heb gebruikt, maar mij favorieten blijven mijn licht roze Essie lakje, de nude-kleurige ernaast, de felroze van Collistar, de mintgroene van Barry M en de chocolade bruine van E.L.F.


An ode to Mint Green

As i definitely like this new seasons colour that's making its comeback, why not do a post about it?
Not only do i love-love-love this colour in clothes (sure i'm gonna buy myself a nice mint green pants soon), also i'm fond off mint chocolates / fresh mint tea / After eight chocolate mint mousse and off course mint ice cream - alltough not the green one, but white with fresh mint-
So..here's an ode to Mint Green ;)

With love,

Stylish Celeb Moms




After my fourth start-to-run lesson this afternoon i tought i deserved some nice lunch, scrambled eggs with cheese on toast and a nice glass of fresh orange juice and selfmade cappucino =)

Na mijn vierde start-tor-un les vanochtend vond ik dat ik wel een goede lunch had verdiend, roerei met kaas op geroosterd brood met een heerlijk glas verse jus d'orange en een zelfgemaakte cappucino =)


New arrivals

I have to admit it, most days i'm like a walking H&M add.
Specially the online shop makes me crazy sometimes, they made it a bit too easy for us uberconsuming shopaholics. A few mouse clicks and your order has been sent.
Smart as they are your order isn't processed immediately, so the next day when you see a few other cute items you'll just throw them in your shoppingbag to add them to your order again.
This time i luckily kept myself under control and just picked out soms nice sale items.
Not exactly sure if i'll keep all of them, what you think?



Just a quick post cause i'll spend rest of the evening catching up with friends who can be here any sec =)
Not exactly new anymore, but still in love with these boots.


Rituals Ultimate Hammam Collection

Lovely gift from my boyfriend <3
The box contains Hammam Body Mud, Hammam Olive Secret shower paste, Hammam Delight showergel sensation, Hammam sea salt Hot scrub and Hammam ultra rich body cream. The products are based on fresh Euclyptus, with influences like Olive, Rice Milk & Ginger.
Curious as i am i allready opened a few of these and they smell delicious, can't wait to try them soon =)


New in || H&M Knits

Last week i went to H&M to see if there were any nice items in their special sale.
Looking at the baby-department was a huge dissapointment, couldn't find anything nice for my the princess.
What i did find were those 3 knits i really wanted to take home with me, comfy but still nice looking.
Also they're easy to combine, for example with a blouse underneath and tight jeans .. can't wait to wear them!
I was looking for a mint green sweater for quite some time and alltough it was not on sale, this one was only €14,95 =)

Recipe || After Eight Chocolate Mint Mousse

My first post will be a recipe i made as dessert for christmas dinner.
A lovely, childfriendly, simple, fingerlicking good after-eight-chocolate-mousse to the recipe of Nigella Lawson.

* 150 grams white marshmallows
* 50 grams soft butter
* 200 grams after eight chocolate mints (1 box)
* 60 grams dark chocolate
* 70 ml boiled water
* 350 ml whipped cream
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cut the marshmallows in two, break the chocolate into pieces en melt them with the butter and pre-boiled water in a heavy-based saucepan on a low fire. While melting keep stirring constantly.

When you reached a smooth, cohesive mixture remove it from the heat and let it cool down for a while. This will be easier by for example putting the pan into a soil of cold water.

Whip the cream with vanilla extract. After while pour the cooled down chocolate mixture (doesn’t have to be cold, just not that hot anymore) in the whipped cream and stir again till you have an evenly mixture. Put it in the fridge for a couple of hours and .. voila!
The longer you’ll leave it in the fridge, the fluffier your mousse will be.


Mijn eerste post wordt *wonder boven wonder* een recept dat ik voor kerst heb gemaakt als dessert. Een heerlijke, kindvriendelijke, simpele, om je vingers bij af te likken after-eight-chocolademousse naar het recept van Nigella Lawson.

* 150 gram witte marshmellows
* 50 gram zachte boter
* 200 gram after eight chocolade (1 doosje)
* 60 gram pure chocolade
* 70 ml voorgekookt water
* 350 ml slagroom
* 1 tl vanille essence

Knip de marshmallows doormidden, breek de chocolade in stukjes en smelt deze samen met de boter en het water in een steelpan op laag vuur. Blijf het geheel tijdens het smelten goed doorroeren.

Wanneer alles een egale massa is laat je het mengsel goed afkoelen. Dit gaat makkelijker door het pannetje bijvoorbeeld in een bodem laag water te zetten. 

Klop de slagroom met vanille-essence. Vervolgens giet je het afgekoelde chocolade-mengsel (deze hoeft niet koud te zijn, maar gewoon niet heet meer) bij de slagroom en roer je deze goed door. Voor een paar uurtjes de koelkast in en … klaar! 
Hoe langer je het mengsel in de koelkast laat staan hoe fluffiƫr de mousse zal worden.

Eet smakelijk!
