Make Your Own Magnetic Spice Rack

I have recently started experimenting with cooking a bit more, which resulted in a counter top cluttered with spice jars. The solution: A magnetic spice rack! They are incredibly useful, and they look great too.

You can buy them ready made from places like Amazon, but the shipping to The Netherlands was insane, and there are only 6 jars per rack on those, which wouldn't quite cut it. So I made one myself!

Okay, "made" is a big word here. This has got to be one of the easiest projects ever. All you need is some magnetic containers (I got the GRUNDTAL ones at Ikea) and a magntic or iron surface. I bought a SPONTAN magnet board at Ikea, but if you have a big fridge, that will work just as well.

The advantage of buying the Ikea containers is that you can always buy more when your spice collection grows.

All you need to do is put up your magnet board (quite a task, if you are a mess with power tools like I am!), fill your jars, stick them to your board, and there you have it, your own customized magnetic spice rack!

I stuck little labels with the spices names on the back of each jar, just so I won't get a nasty surprise of paprika powder on my pancakes instead of cinnamon.

Let me know if you decide to make one too, I'd love to see the result!

P.S. Don't you just love my Star Trek salt & pepper shakers? They were a gift from Mr.Licious. Ah, what a lovely nerd couple we make!

P.S.2. Do not attempt to go buy this magnetic rack by bike. I tried and failed miserably.

Things I Love: Hula Hooping

I have a new hobby: Hula hooping! I bought myself a hoop last week, and I have been enjoying it a lot.

If you're not the sporty type, this might be a great way to work out for you. I usually don't really enjoy sports, and only like that great "Ahhhh, I worked out today!" feeling after the work out. Mainly because that means I am done with it for the day I guess. But hula hooping is actually a lot of fun to do!

Here are a few tips in case you want to start hula hooping too:

- Make sure you have enough space, especially if you're hooping inside. I managed to smash a few things with my hoop already. Oops?

- Start with a bigger, weighted hoop. I thought smaller ones would be easier, but apparently the size and weight give it extra momentum, making it easier to keep it up. So don't go for a children's hoop, but get one for women instead.

- Or try making one yourself using this method.

- Learn to hoop both ways! When you start, hooping in a certain direction will probably feel more natural to you. But learning to hoop both ways will make sure you exercise your muscles evenly.

- Don't look in the mirror while hooping. Just concentrate on the rythm and feeling of the hoop (closing your eyes might help).

- Here are some great videos to get you started.

Enjoy! Let me know if you're giving it a try!

Romantic Wedding Gift Wrapping

Here's a cute idea for wrapping a wedding gift! When my friends Liyuan and Rune got married last week, I wanted to add a little extra to the gift wrap. I looked through my charms, and came across this heart locket.

I facebook stalked them to find a cute picture of both of them, and voila!

I thought it gave the package just that little bit extra.
