About Me




Hey there! This is me: Mäisy (pronounce: macy). A beautiful mess, creative spirit and kitchen mess maker.

I currently work as a freelance writer, editor and creative writing teacher in Northern Germany where I live with my fiancé J, our three guinea pigs Ginny, Hedwig and Poppy, and about 50 indoor plants 😊 I'm happiest when I'm hiking through nature – preferably forests – or stuck between the pages of a book, a chai tea in one hand, a chocolate chip cookie in the other.

I started this blog in 2013 when I was studying for my Bachelor of Arts degree, and ever since then it has always been a place where I "collect" pieces of my different passions in life, such as
experimenting in the kitchen, reading, learning about healing yourself, and exploring my own path in life.


WHAT YOU WILL FIND ON THIS BLOG

  • Easy & healthy recipes that are vegan or plant-based
  • Homemade natural beauty ideas 
  • DIY projects for your home and homemade gifts for friends and family
  • Ways to simplify and "healthify" your life
  • An introduction to alternative holistic healing practices, such as herbal medicine, natural remedies and how-tos
  • My experience with foraging
  • Input on manifestation and empowerment
  • and a few other random things :)

My personal passions (and topics on this blog) currently range from plant-based and refined sugar-free eating, to Ayurveda, homemade skin care products, homebrewing (kombucha 😍), vegetable gardening, medicinal herbs as well as pagan seasonal festivals and fictional foods. I consider myself a bookish "Suburban hippie", vegan food enthusiast, and lover of nature. I’m especially passionate about reclaiming my natural feminine roots, exploring plant magic, wildcrafting, and other "old ways".

I am in no way an expert in medicine, wildcrafting or even entertainment (lol), but I am eager to learn all that I can about all topics surrounding homesteading, herbs and healing.
