VLog: Saturday in my life

Hi everyone! Today’s video is a vlog of a Saturday in my life. I filmed this video a few weeks ago when I was feeling a lot better in my pregnancy. Just making my favorite Spanish breakfast ‘tostada con tomate y queso’ and we’re all heading to the farmers market. I also talk about how important it is to have some me-time as part of your self-care routine. 
I hope you enjoy the video and let me know in the comments how you spend your Saturdays and how you make sure you have me-time!

Vlog staycation in the netherlands

NEW Video is live on Youtube! Our Staycation vlog in the Netherlands. We meant to go to Greece, but unfortunately that was canceled due to Covid-19. We therefore booked a little cottage in a bungalow park in the Netherlands and enjoyed the Dutch summer sun.

We had so much fun and I was sad when it was over. However thinking of the memories we made makes me so happy.

What are your plans for this summer? Did you have to change your original plans too?

What Alzheimer´s look like..

A few years ago we started to notice a change in my grandmother. She didn’t seem as sharp as before and was forgetting more than usual. But how do you deal with this?

She went to several doctors, because she had more symptoms than just forgetting this and seeming a bit off. After a while the doctors figured it out. It was the dreadful diagnosis of Alzheimer´s. A disease that is invisible to the eye, but seen in every movement made by the patient.

During this pandemic my grandfather got the call. The call that would change his life in a way he needed, but not necessarily in a better way. There was a spot available in a nursing home for Alzheimer´s patients. My grandmother couldn’t live at home anymore, because most of the time she had no clue where she was or who my grandfather was.

So she moved to a nursing home and because of Covid-19 we can’t visit her in a regular way. We can meet outside and keep a gate in between us. Unfortunately this is the way it has to be for now. Even though it’s heartbreaking not being able to give her a hug.

The only left is being there for my grandfather while he’s adjusting to living on his own for the first time ever. With Bbq’s and dinners we try to cheer him up where we can.

The upside from this whole story is that my grandmother is in good care and most of the time she believes she’s in a hotel. She goes on about the great staff, good food and what a nice hotel it is. So knowing that she’s happier makes me happy too.

Starting Youtube!

I finally did it! My new “secret” project is live! I was thinking and doubting whether to do this for years. My first step into this journey was starting my blogs on justalittletasteoflife.com.

However I wanted to push myself creatively even more. It’s a scary and chaotic time in the world and I feel for everyone suffering and to be honest this affects me mentally as it does emotionally. I was doubting again.. is this the right time? But I figured that if I needed some positive energy perhaps others do too. And for me being creative gives me positive energy. Therefore I finally decided to go live with my project.


So here it is .. I started my YouTube Channel! How scary it is to actually post this, but at the same time also very exciting. Today I’m posting a small introduction video to my channel and tomorrow I’ll be posting the first vlog. It will be a mix of vlogs and sit down videos. The topics can go from ‘Living with a Toddler’ to ‘How to reduce plastic’ and much more. As my blog the videos will also show ‘Just a Little Taste of My Life’. I hope you enjoy the videos and I would love to connect with you! You can find the link the here below or search on YouTube by Ilse Michelle.
