Chocolate and Coffee Cupcakes

There's something about the combination of coffee and choclate in this cupcake that just keeps me wanting more. The bitterness off the cake is perfectly outbalanced by the  sweetness of the dark chocolate. Not only is it extremely yummy, it's also a very easy and quick recipe.

Although the galaxy-hype might have passed its peak, I keep on liking this print. Somehow I felt like minerals would fit perfectly in the galaxy-theme. I find these stones fascinating and extremely beautiful both as homedeco as as jewellery. 

1. Fashionology Lapis Lazuli necklace
2. Bardot Cosmic fade top
3. Urban Outfitters Galaxy bra (out of stock)
4. Amethyst (try your luck at flea markets)
5. Ceek Mineral stone ring

De galaxy-hype mag zijn toppunt dan wel gepasseerd zijn, ik blijf ervan houden. Op een of andere manier vond ik mineralen perfect passen in het galaxy-thema. Ik vind deze stenen fascinerend en heel erg mooi, zowel als object in huis als verwerkt in juwelen.

1. Fashionology Lapis Lazuli halsketting
2. Bardot Cosmic fade trui
3. Urban Outfitters Galaxy bh (niet meer verkrijgbaar)
4. Amethyst (probeer eens op rommelmarkten)
5. Ceek Mineral stone ring

DIY: Open season

Cardboard taxidermy has been quite the rage and it's rather easy to do yourself, so why not give it a go?
This tutorial is based on a great 'how to'  by J3443RY on Instructables, that we  loved, but we missed an extra something; a season-appropriate update. The classic mounted head has a certain wintery feel to it, even if it's the fake cardboard version . This is where the wrapping paper comes in. Besides being plain cute and summery, it also allows you to use lower quality materials,  e.g. the slightly filthy box your Ikea couch came in, and it doesn't require the same level of handiness a wooden version does. I'll cover the first few steps a bit quick, as they are explained quite well on Instructables.
