The one with coffee at a factory

Back in may, I posted about a walk me + mum had to a former factory, back in april. After walking around and enjoying the building that once was a soup factory (and taking lots of pictures), we wanted to have a drink and a bite, so we visited First Things First. Just look at how wonderfully awesome this place is! This post is not sponsored, I just like to share and show some of the things going on, and places worth visiting in my hometown.

I opted for a cafe latte and (my first ever!) piece of red velvet cake. Mum choose a chocolate milk and apple crumble (made on the spot and served warm, yum!). A coffee roastery, named Blommers, is located in the same building. You can actually see the whole process of coffee roasting from your table!

We ran into critters of different sorts outside

Spotted some streetart on our way back home,

And a pretty door ;-)

First Things First is located at the Honigcomplex, Waalbandijk 14B in Nijmegen

The one with the things I liked this week (123)

Seen this one many times, but never taken the time to photograph this wall

 The hydrangea on my balcony

More from the balcony, my very first raspberry!

And more vitamins

Vintage cars keep popping up, like this one

Have a fun weekend!

The one with the clipboard

The upside of summer not showing itself, is that all the extra time indoors can be spend on working on new DIY projects. Don't misunderstand, I am waiting for summer to show itself. And I am looking forward to sipping on cold drinks, wearing shorts, and getting some reading done on my balcony. But until then, I'll wait, (not so) patiently inside, making stuff!
Lots of the interior photos on Pinterest that I like, happen to have clipboards in them. A lovely way of displaying pretty photo's and images (this illustration was in Flow Magazine), it's easypeasy to change what you want on display. And making it is easypeasy too! I came across a paper bag, that had a lovely starsign pattern on the inside, that I used for this little project.

What you'll need:
  • cardboard (I used two pieces, to make the clipboard extra sturdy)
  • pretty paper
  • metal clip
  • washi tape
  • glue
  • utility knife
  • cutting mat
  • transparant contact paper (the kind that is sticky on one side)

Start by cutting the paper the same size as the cardboard paper,
I made one for the front, as well as one for the back

Now comes the tricky part: place the pretty paper on either side of the cardboard and cover this up with the contact paper. Cut away the edges.

Stick the tape to the edges of the clipboard.

Fold over

Glue the clip to the board. Turned out I had the wrong kind of glue, but a small piece of tape in between the clip and the board did the trick. 

And done!

The one with the things I liked this week (122)

Walking in this part of town always makes me feel like I'm on vacation

Meeting with Mandy to have our favourite summer drink 
(Moscato, lime, mint, and lots of ice)

Enjoying the rare bit of sunshine we had this week out on my balcony

Getting some DIY-ing done, more next week!

Not the prettiest of pictures, but a rainbow visited my livingroom this week :-)

Hope you're having a great saturday and sunday. I need to get some work done first, 
and after that I will be celebrating the weekend!

The one with some music for your monday

OWS - Waterline

Bleachers & Sia - Like a river runs

Nate Ruess & Beck - What this world is coming to

Last weekend I had a little Call the Midwife marathon, and one of the episodes had this wonderfully, cheery song in it. Normally I am not a big fan of period dramas, but this one really got me hooked! I have one more episode left, which probably will be watched after work, and I hope Netflix will have the fourth season available soon. Are you a fan of the English nuns and nurses?

Alma Cogan - Never do a tango with an eskimo
