5 Delights

Five Delights: spring edition

Spring music

Spring has finally sprung and that’s a good reason to open the windows and let in some fresh air. Complete the beautiful view of a sunny sky with the great violins in Four Seasons by Vivaldi and you have all the ingredients for an amazing afternoon.

Closet cleaning

When spring comes, it’s time for a freshen up of your closet. Spend a good few hours going through all of your clothes; what to toss, what to sell, what to store and what to keep and in the end you will have a great reason to spoil yourself with gorgeous new clothes to fill up that empty closet space.


Perfect sunglasses are that subtle hint of class that can complete even the most simple outfit. It’s a little thing that can make a huge difference. A good pair of sunglasses would make a gorgeous springuniform with the beautiful dove grey Louboutins.

Outside lunch

Nothing screams spring like enjoying your lunch in the open air. Taking your time to enjoy your meal in the sun is the perfect break for busy workdays. A great place in Amsterdam to have a healthy and delicious lunch is the Wasserette for example.

Spring recipes

A great meal for when you have the luxury of owning your own garden and you are able to enjoy your lunch there.

Rosemary Lemonade

Combine one 1/2 cup of water with 1 cup of sugar and cook over medium heat and stir. Once the sugar has dissolved turn off the heat and throw in a sprig of rosemary. Discard the rosemary sprig when the water is cooled and you have your own delicious home-made lemonade.

Watermelon salad

For this gorgeous springtime salad you cut tomatoes, watermelon and onion into chunks and sprinkle that with crumbled feta cheese. Whisk together extra-virgin olive, some chopped mixed fresh herbs, fresh lemon juice and salt for the dressing and enjoy your salad with some home-made lemonade or Kusmi BB Detox tea. The perfect spring meal!
