This is something that definately makes me think about what my hobbies/passions are and what I would love to do and/or accomplish in life. What would your dream job be like? What are your hobbies right now and what would you like to be doing (maybe in the future)? I find it very hard to name one actual hobby at the moment. For a long time I would have said; blogging. But at the moment, I'm having some sort of writers block. I love to look at other blogs, follow several vloggers on youtube but it seems that it just doesn't bring me the inspiration for creating my own articles, blogs or collages. With that beeing said, I'm very happy at the moment! I just made a promotion at work, I'm a great relationship (and have been for the past years), I have a lovely house and garden and adorable pets. So 'finding' a real hobby should, to me, not be something you're looking for but something you come accross that makes you happy while you're doing it. 
Anyway, I do agree with this quote. I think, your job is a very big part of your life and therefor should be something that, besides making you get a paycheck in the end of the month, at least you don't hate doing... And working out in any way, from swimming to horsebackriding or running and doing something creative are great additions in making you healthy & happy and increasing your quality of life!

Happy Easter!

Here's some music for a perfect day of relaxing, spending time with family and/or friends and brunching ;-) 
I'm really in to nu-jazz. Have you ever heard of this kind of music? 
Luckily for me there are a couple of 'Saint-German-des-Prés-Café' -cd's you can listen on youtube. I'm definately going to buy them! 

p.s. They're named after a district/quarter in Paris (arrondisement 6/7 to be exact), says enough right?

How to be a perfect host

Having people over for a dinner-, party of do they sleep over? Here's a few tips on how to be a 'perfect host'! 

 ♥ Ask your guest if they have any allergies or dislikes when it comes to food and drinks, and keep that in mind when you go shopping or start cooking ;-)  have enough food an drinks, it's always better to buy and/or make a little extra than have your guest leave with an empty stomage!  Are your guests ok with pets? Or are they allergic? Vacuum and sweep the floor extra beforehand and keep the pets away from your guests  Know how to set a table, and put a little extra attention in decoration (especially when everyone is staying over for a holiday)  Is your toilet/ bathroom clean? Stock up on toilet papier and other toiletries anyone might need ♥ Music should suit the occasion and shouldn't be that loud so that no-one can carry on a conversation  ♥  Are they sleeping over as well? Always have crispy clean bed-linnen extra (clean) towels and more than enough pillows, sheets and blankets. Nobody should be cold at night!  Make everyone feel welcome, special and appreciated. That means spending time with your guest(s) and giving them your full attention  ♥ Thank your guest(s) for coming over! 

What are your tips/suggestions on beeing a great host?
