Q-Time is all you need

Sometimes a little Q-Time (aka Quality Time) is all you need. Truth is, since I've quit my job and started working as a freelancer, there has been considerably more quality time. Not necessarily because I'm working less (I actually think I'm putting in more hours now). But mostly because I'm free to organize my time [...]

Three lessons learned from #GIRLBOSS

I found myself sitting around at home, on sick leave. There was one thing my doctor, my mother, my friends and pretty much every friendly soul around me advised me to keep clear off: thinking. "Don't overthink things to much, just rest." "Whatever you do, don't think too much." "Just keep it cool, no thinking about the [...]

this year the easter bunny is bringing something special


What a week it has been. I had this post lined up earlier this week but decided not to publish it because of the shocking events that took place on Tuesday. Somehow it didn't feel right to talk about fresh new beginnings amidst violence and death and terror. And yet, living our lives to the [...]

C’est arrivé près de chez vous (part II)

You think it will never happen to you, that it cannot happen to you, that you are the only person in the world to whom none of these things will ever happen, and then, one by one, they all begin to happen to you, in the same way they happen to everyone else. - Paul [...]

The Comeback Kid

Your desk or mine?

Enkele maanden geleden vroeg bosslady Lien De Pau me of ik het zag zitten om een aantal artikels te schrijven voor hét netwerk voor vrouwelijke ondernemers, Zeker Van Haar Zaak. Onderwerp: vrouwen en ondernemerschap. Daar moesten we uiteraard geen nano-seconde over nadenken want er [...]

It’s Oh So Quiet

Ah, that sweet sound (and the craziness!) of the nineties. It's been awfully quiet around here lately. Turns out, my Christmas Débacle was just the kick off of an entire season of Misery, capital M. I fell ill at the beginning of January and basically spent the entire month of January catching up on sleep [...]

A Christmas Miracle

This Christmas is one for the history books and boy, am I going to hear about it FOR-EVER. It all started out so wonderful. On the morning before Christmas, my two rugrats and I headed to the grocery store at 8am. Thanks to my perfect shopping list, allowing for the most efficient Christmas dinner shopping [...]

TGITH (Thank God It’s… The Holidays)

Tis the season, and boy, God knows we can use some serious chillaxing after this helluva year! Without further ado, here are some heartwarming activities for you to consider. Watch Namaste, Bitches. I mean, that has got to be the best title for a comedic series ever. (I secretly fantasize about using that line in [...]
