Inside our kitchen (the kitchen tour)

the kitchen tour - ByMeryl

My boyfriend and I moved into our new apartment a couple months ago and it’s been a work in progress getting it decorated just the way we like it. We all love a good sneak peek into someone’s home, right? That’s why I am starting the whole home decor section with a kitchen tour. And maybe also because it’s the only room that feels semi-done, oh well.

Italy on my mind (the Florence guide)

The Florence Guide - ByMeryl

As part of our Italian roadtrip my boyfriend and I decided to pay Florence (also known as Firenze) a visit. Florence wasn’t really on our radar so we went there without any expectations. The only reason why we planned a few days in Florence was the fact that my boyfriend really wanted to eat a bistecca alla fiorentina, or in other words a huge steak from a specific type of cow (not kidding). Sometimes the trips you plan without expectations turn out to be the best ones, because we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and all the amazing food places Florence has to offer. I hope you enjoy reading our recommendations in this Florence guide. View Post

Podcasts don’t get enough credit in my opinion. I personally am a big fan and love listening to them while I work, clean, cook, workout, remove my make-up; basically all the time. I love how they can bring inspiration or fun to your day without taking up any extra time (YES for multitasking).
