tippics My new spur of the moment purchase at the supermarket today. I was actually looking for one as they are the best plant for damp rooms as it happily soaks up moisture (this is headed to the bathroom). Not sure about the pot but let's see if it holds up. I should probably put it in a shelf & take a pic for #urbanjunglebloggers ... That could still happen! 1d
  •   actproductionsblog Need some green too! does your bathroom has a window? @tippics 1d
  •   tippics Yes it does but the previous owners placed a bathroom on the North side of the house so it never really gets warm...it also has the tiniest heater in the world for what is a rather large space! @actproductionsblog It's on the list for renovations ... One day ... 1d

tippics Trying to go to the bokbier festival with 4 kids aged 3 to 7 was a bad idea as it was crazy busy this year (good weather I guess). So we took refuge eating burgers at Meneer Smakers. #Utrecht #Twijnstraat 4d

tippics Full of #gratitude this morning as I woke up to the news that a friend had her baby 6 weeks early but all is well and they're doing great. Hallelujah for modern technology...& a double shot fluffy #coffee. Naturally. #365daysofgratitude2014 5d

tippics Made myself a little celebratory #lunch as I taught my last class until mid-November. Yahoo! My eyes are bigger than my belly I think but this will probably also be dinner ... BTW, @natplays & I will be facilitating a 5 week course from Nov 17 - enrolments open Nov 13, so if you're ready to create a stress free home for the holidays, then keep your eyes peeled! :-) #foundredleicestertooyay 6d

tippics Trying to decide if this should go ... Or perhaps parts of it. Thoughts? I like it but we don't light candles that often ... hmm. 1w

tippics I always edit our wardrobes as the seasons change which seems to get the momentum going for a bigger edit of the rest if the house. So here are a few things that I will sell soon - including a few things from HAY, Granit & some interiors books. Watch this space! (Well, it'll probably be another IG account.) #apartmentdiet #edit #habits 1w

tippics Spent the last few hours decluttering as I'm getting ready for the next house project - turning the attic into a parents retreat so the kids can have a room each. 12 pairs of shoes left today + all of my business suits off to a charity that helps less advantaged women get dressed for success. I'm still having a minor panic attack & told hubs to "get them out if here straight away!". Sometimes it's just like pulling a plaster off but you gotta do it. #apartmentdiet #practicewhatwepreach #missingmyshoesalready 1w
  •   mariela__79 Good luck with everything X 1w
  •   rhiannonconnelly Wow - yes a wee pinch of bravery is required - but it is worth it ! I like to get stuff off the premises straight away too - so the charity shop 2 mins away does pretty well ! 1w
  •   zrinkush Good job! I'm a hoarder in recovery so I understand totally the panic attacks coming with decluttering, but it does get easier or at least that's what I tell myself 1w
  •   tippics Oh it totally gets easier! @zrinkush I've been decluttering for a while now, but letting go of the suits is a big life decision so it's a wee bit harder! Let's see what unfolds... 1w
  •   tippics Aaah - very handy! @rhiannonconnelly 1w
  •   tippics Thanks hon. Love your profile pic BTW! @mariela__79 1w
  •   mariela__79 @tippics oh thank you so much!! 1w

tippics I'm slowly returning to cooking after the long cooking strike - I'd forgotten how much I love to entertain. Tonight an impromptu dinner with friends as I decided to try making lentil soup & made way too much. Love the impromptu dinner - zero pressure! :-) #cookingstrikeonhold 2w

tippics Reminiscing back to yesterday's #bluesky & the giggle I had when I looked up at this roof terrace, as today we're back to the usual autumn programmer of cold, grey & rain ... #yesitsagiraffe 2w

tippics Too dark at dinner time these days but had to share Jen's #fig dessert tip. Drizzle halved (firm) figs with honey (& brandy) + cinnamon, bake at 180C for 10-20mins (check after 10). Serve warm with marscapone/creme fraiche/vanilla ice cream & pistachios. Mmmmm ... #easyrecipes #dessert @jenniferloiselle 2w

  •   elvanht Are these giga from your own tree? So jealous, mine has loads of figs this year but all small, green and rock-hard 2w
  •   elvanht Giga=figs 2w
  •   tippics Yes, we lucked out this year - last year they were like that too (green & hard). Is it a new tree? @elvanht 2w
  •   elvanht It's a couple of years old, last year we had á (1) fig. This year there are plenty. And to my surprise just found one that was ripe enough to eat!!! 2w

tippics Regram from Nat on @apartmentdiet - something for me too as the universe has been testing me today with no less than 3 job agents calling me for finance roles, including setting up a bank in China. I'd love to do it but these days, I love my apt diet work even more - changing clients lives one corner at a time! 2w
