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.


  • 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.
