HOME SWEET HOME

Hello friends, I'm back home and almost ready to give you an update on my trip to Barcelona. I can already reveal that the weather was amazing. Sunshine and about 19 celcius. I'm usually blogging about home and lifestyle but today I'd love to make an exception to that rule and share my new healthy addiction with you: GREEN SMOOTHIES You might think that this looks great but tastes awful but that is not true. This is such a healthy treat in the morning. This green smoothie is made from Orange Juice, 1 Banana, 50gram baby spinache and a bit of coconut oil and coconut water. It's a wonderful treat to start your day.

Q. WHAT DO YOU THINK? DO YOU MAKE SMOOTHIES? ANY TIPS?

TODAY I WANT TO BE IN...NEW YORK (VIA URBAN STYLE VIBES*)

Good Morning! Welcome to the new week. What are your plans? I have a busy schedule ahead but I love it! Today I'd love to travel to New York City with you. If you are a frequent reader of my blog you know how much I love this vibrant city. So much to discover, so little time. Browsing the internet I came across this lovely Nu Hotel in Brooklyn. 'Nu' means 'now' in Dutch but I'm not sure if that is what it's meant to be;-) Anyway I love this clean and comfortable place with lovely industrial details and a fresh and contemporary look.

Q. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS PLACE? WOULD YOU LIKE TO STAY HERE?

TODAY I WANT TO BE IN...NEW YORK VIA AIRBNB

Good morning friends! An early bird catches the worm. I woke up early today so I have some extra time to share new hotspots with you. Today I want to take you to New York City. It's one of my favourite hotspots in the world and I prefer to go back every year if possible. This year I'm planning a visit in May for Blogfest 2012 In my search for a unique place to stay I came across this unique designer apartment via airbnb. If you want to see the full description of this apartment click here. I'm sure you know Airbnb. It's a wonderful source of unique places across the globe where you can stay in someone elses house or apartment. I especially like the idea to meet new people and get to know the destination more personal via this lovely portal. I'm also thinking about the possibility to offer my own apartment on this site one day.
