    Visiting the Netherlands- Beautiful Nature and History

    Today I write about visiting the Netherlands and the beautiful nature you will find here. In my blog “A Beautiful Winter day in the Netherlands,” I have already written about the Veluwe National Park. There was a time I couldn’t arrive in the Netherlands mentally. My heart grieved because I couldn’t find my place in this overcrowded country. You know me now a bit, and I am a person who loves to live in a quiet environment. In my opinion, the Netherlands is very loud and packed, full of cities, villages, houses, people, and cars. My mind, my heart needs the beauty of quietness to be creative and to recharge.…

    Color Your Hair Grey- Beautiful You!

    Color Your Hair Grey! The majority of women don’t embrace their natural hair color as they age. The idea of looking older seems to have a strong impact on deciding to go grey—even the promise of looking younger by complimenting the facial skin and hair color. Dying the hair in the wrong color leave us older and tired-looking, even to the point of ill-looking. You know when friends or family ask you if you are sick or tired, observing your black swollen eyes circles and deep engraved wrinkles. Grey is beautiful! A mature woman whose hair is already turning to grey looks stunning with the right style and colors balancing…

    Living in Ireland – Beautiful Island

      I loved Ireland, especially my life in Dublin, so much that I wrote the post “Living in Ireland, beautiful Island.” It has been a great experience living and working in Dublin. To travel is beautiful because you get to know other countries, cultures, and people. Well, to live and work in another country is completely different. Getting to know another culture and the people, to learn how things work in another country can be a challenge for some people. Otherwise, it is a great decision to help us to stretch our horizons. It has been a challenge for me, for sure. An Irish Lady I have been friends with…

    The Art of Living a Free Lifestyle

    How to live a free Lifestyle? How to live a financially free lifestyle is the question. I would love this lifestyle, and I am working hard to get there. Would you do the same? How to live a free lifestyle, a financially free lifestyle? When I was young, I always felt pressure. I had to take on so many responsibilities; I could hardly breathe. Maybe that is a reason that many young people have  Asthma. The pressure to be educated is so enormously huge that young people already suffer from burnout. Parents asked so much of their children because society has become a pressure. The statistics show that many young…

    Corona and Holidays- Where to Go?

    After spending the winter and most of the spring in lockdown, we all would love to travel again, but there is still so much insecurity among the people. Corona and holidays- where to go? We tried twice to travel to my family in Germany. We couldn’t go because of the lockdown, but also because Germany didn’t want Dutch people to travel over their border due to the high numbers of infections in the Netherlands. Now summer is coming, and the infections dropped down. People who registered with symptoms have been the vaccinated ones, according to many doctors’ observations. I believe that the summer is doing us a great favor, like…

    The Beauty of Solar Lights inThe Garden.

    Spring has arrived, temperatures are still not warm and not really low, so we prepare for the warmth to come in our garden. Having beautiful relaxing days and evenings sitting on our terrace in the garden is so uplifting. Do you know the beauty of solar lights in the garden? I can’t be without them. They are beautiful spots in the darkness and let us experience a lovely summer, listening to the cricket’s sound, smelling the perfume of the summer night, wishing it will be summer the whole year. Still, in our hemisphere, we experience the seasons what is beautiful. I don’t know about you, but I love this time…

    Give a Tree as a Gift on Mother’s Day- Sustainable and Beautiful

    You may think it is a strange idea to give a tree as a gift on Mother’s day. Mothers desire something personally, like jewelry, or flowers, perfume, etc. But I think it is a great idea to give a tree as a present. My mother loves such presents, especially because she loves the garden and plants. Me too! Giving a native tree or a fruit tree is something special. It beautifies your garden and the environment attracting lots of bees and butterflies. I have been looking up for native trees to help the insects increasing their population. Still, I already have three big trees in my small fairy garden and…

    Living a Sustainable Lifestyle- RefurbishedProducts

    Living a sustainable lifestyle is actually not that difficult because wherever you live, you could make adjustments. If you have read my posts on my natural health site, you will have learned that I love everything natural; nature, moving, food. There is so much we can do without leaving much waste behind. I buy my vegetables and fruits in an organic shop or market, and I try to purchase only organic meat, knowing where it comes from and how these animals have died. For me, it is essential to know. But I have to admit that I have also not given a thought to the idea of living healthy and…

    The Beauty of the Busy Bee in My Garden?

    How to attract bees to my garden is a question I ask myself very often because I noticed that even I have a paradise for the little friends, they have decreased in numbers over the last years, which makes me very sad. The beauty of the busy bee in my garden is something I will not miss, and I do everything for them to love my garden. Her decreased numbers show that many neighbors are still using pesticides and herbicides in their gardens or even have no real flowers for the bees. In the garden shops, you can purchase many different flowers, mostly cultivated, so that many bees and bumblebees…
