DIY Grown-up Sippy Cup

Hydration is key! On the island in the summer (but also in winter!). I have heard multiple times not to reuse plastic bottles and leave them in the sun. Yet with the recycling fact in mind, I created this DIY Mason jar sippy cup.
What you'll need;
- A big empty jar
- Hammer
- Nail
- Thick screw
- Straw

1. Make a hole in the middle with the nail
2. Make the hole bigger with the screw
3. Make sure to flatten out the sharp edges on the inside, by hammering them down

Et voila! Your very own re-usable mason jar sippy-cup, to keep you hydrated

On the isLand

We are currently working on our house on a piece of land, walking around here requires shades and a hat to protect you from the hot afternoon sun. I cannot wait to start gardening around the house and to harvest fruits and vegetables. We picked our very first lime this day. And when life hands you limes.....

Pink & Other Stories

 This spring it's all about the pinks. In Milan I went on this beauty haul and stocked up on the pinks at &Other Stories. Foe those who know this store, I also happily share that you can expect the first one in Amsterdam end of this year (situated in Heilige weg). Unfortunately for me I won't be around Amsterdam since I am moving back to Curaçao this week. Cannot wait to wear these fresh bright pinks on the island!

Italian tour 2.0 - THE FOOD

After touring the north of Italy, we tracked south towards Florence, Chianti wine region and Rome. the food, the food, the food! Along with the food, came the wine. 
After climbing over 400 steps of stairs (the bell tower above), we went for lunch at the well reviewed by many;  'Ino. They serve fresh panini with fresh, local products and of course wine or beer. 
While in Florence we came across this wineshop that sold by the glass. Along with your wine, free toast with ham, bell pepper and onion spread. It is a family business, mother and son serving and selling. They bottle and cork their own bottles as well. If in florence stop by this Enoteca Alla Sosta dei Papi.
Then we continued our journey through Chianti, Stopped for a wine tasting at Castillo Verrazzano. We where advised to pass by the goat cheese farm at the end of the road, down the hill. However when we got there the farmer told us they did not have any cheese, since their goats have given birth recently. The fun thing was he told us we could go play with the baby goats!
We stopped in Greve in Chianti and visited the famous butcher shop; Antica Macelleria Falorni, a carnivores heaven I suppose. It had any meat, sausage, salumi, chops, imaginable! Attached a little cafe/wine shop where you could do tastings, worth a trip!
In the mean time, I have been experimenting with my own Italian cuisine. Visiting local markets and supermarkets, (trying to) order my groceries in Italian. Fresh, local, Italian produce, YUM! 
After driving through wine country and enjoying many beautiful views, we arrived in Rome. Admiring many of the amazing sights, we stopped for lunch at Obika. A Mozzarella bar, with an amazing menu. we went for the simple, yet tasty stuff. Cherry tomatoes, basil Stracciatella and burratta. A creamy, whipped form of mozzarella; Ah-MA-ZING!
