Another week flew by and I’ve been extra busy doing all the things in the house that needed to be done for so long. I wasn’t alone doing this, my partner helped of course as we live together but I am lucky to have amazing parents as well!
My mother helped to clean the whole house for two long days and my father helped with installing some lamps and things like that.
So this week, this is what I’m grateful for: my parents. They have always been so helpful and supporting. Of course we fought, like any child with its parents, but they’ve always tried their best for me and putting my siblings and myself before themselves. Thank you mom and dad for being the wonderful people you are! I am lucky to have you :)
The barbecue season is officially opened. I wanted to give a twist to the usual oven potatoes so I decided to go with these hasselback potatoes – crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, the perfect combination!
Ingredients for four servings:
– 8 potatoes
– 10g of melted butter
– some fleur de sel or if you don’t have any, sea salt will do just fine!
Cut slices right across the potatoes being careful not to go all the way through them so the bottoms stay attached. A little tip to make this step easier: take two wooden spoons and place their handles on each side of a potato, that way you won’t be able to cut all the way down. This makes the process easier and faster at the same time.
Place the potatoes in a roasting tray and pour the melted butter over them. Sprinkle with fleur de sel and roast at 200°C for about 40-45 minutes. Tada, it’s ready to eat!
It’s this time of the week again when I share with you what I enjoyed most about the previous week. The weather keeps getting better and better in Belgium so I’m grateful for all the sunny days and barbecues! Also, I live in the countryside so the landscapes are amazing at this time of the year.
I’m also really happy that I spent more time with my sister and her son, I even babysat him this morning!
Finally, I know it’s a tad superficial but I’m so glad I found some great spring/summer dresses (sneak peak on my Instagram and article to follow about my recent purchases) and shoes, both of which I’d been looking for for a long time.
How about you? Anything nice happened lately?
Here’s a pictures of some neighbours enjoying the sun!

Hi there everyone!
Again, sorry for not posting in a while. As you may have read, I’m really tired lately and I’m trying to focus my energy on getting better and going to the gym at least five times a week.
Even if I didn’t take time to write any article, I still had some energy to browse the internet and I saw a few blogs talking about the “100 days of happiness” challenge (if you haven’t read about it, here’s the website). I don’t want to take pictures of every single thing that makes me happy but I do believe it’s important to be grateful in your life. In this spirit, I’m starting a new type of articles: Wonderful Wednesday! In these articles I will simply speak about something that made me happy and grateful about my life during the previous week and I do hope you will share with me your reasons to be grateful/happy.
This week, my life has been wonderful because I had the chance to spend quality time with my dog and my boyfriend. Also I had a lovely dinner with my friends on Saturday night for which I made the desserts, recipes will follow.
To end this post, a little picture of my dog in his Easter disguise. Now you can understand why he’s one of the reasons I’m happy and grateful to have him!
How about you? What are you grateful for in your life at the moment? What makes you happy?
