Tales on Tuesday: Under the stars - weirdatheart.com

Diversity is a hot topic. Should we take in more or less refugees? Do we want more or less international cooperation? And should borders that have been opened in recent decades be closed again? Interestingly enough, religion is often mentioned as a big theme in the debate surrounding diversity. ‘Islam is a violent and hateful religion.’ ‘Our Judeo-Christian tradition is under threat.’ Continue Reading

A healthy lentil lunch receipe

A lentil lunch receipe - weirdatheart.com
Can I call this a receipe? I’m not sure – that’s how easy this is. As we are going away for the weekend I literally threw together some leftovers from the fridge and created this. It tastes really good, definitely some steps above the average ‘let’s throw this shit together’ kinda meal, and much more like comfort food than the healthy lunch it really is. Also: greek yoghurt + spicy Continue Reading

On things to do before 30

January 5, 2016

There's so much pressure to do stuff before 30, but perhaps it's time to take a look at what we already have accomplished. Join in at the blog!
With the big 3-0 nearing, I found myself pondering all the ‘to do before 30’ lists. I once read a quote saying that if you haven’t achieved anything before 30, you never will.

Did you hear about Stack already? I just stumbled upon it and haven’t tried it yet, but boy, does it seem to be the answer to all my magazine-boredness related problems.

One small project at a time the house is slowly becoming ours, instead of just his. The bedroom was mostly left out of the redecorating process, but last week we finally got around to plastering the walls there. My parents came over and with a little (a lotta) help from my dad who actually knows how to do it, the four of us did all of the plastering ourselves. I feel like such a pro now. A lot of other work Continue Reading

I’ve been seeing beautiful marquee letters inspired lamps all over Pinterest for a while, and decided it was time to try my hand at one. Since moving in with the boyfriend I’ve been using the globe that was a birthday present long ago in what probably were my early teens (or even before that?). It is still one of my favorite objects, but I strained my eyes trying to read by the little light it gives. And what use is a nightlight you can’t comfortably read by? Continue Reading

Ready Player One - Book review | Like dystopian stories AND eighties nostalgia? Then this book might just be for you! Click through for an in-depth review.
So yes, I’m a book nerd. I love spending my evenings with a good story and a hot cuppa. When I moved  in with my boyfriend, I got rid of a lot of my furniture and stuff. BUT. My one condition was that all of my books were coming with me (well, and my favorite chair, the cabinet that used to belong to my grandparents, my collection of vintage Continue Reading
