About


The girl


My name is Inês, born in the late 80s in Lisbon, Portugal. I've been loving animals of all sorts and sizes since a very young age, but on top of my list are bunnies, hedgehogs, whales, and flamingos. After living most of my life in the country by the sea (that still fills up my heart), I moved to The Netherlands where I've been living for over eight years with my boyfriend David, later joined by our daughters Eva and Alma, and one super cute bunny - Einstein. I don't know what it is to live without being surrounded by fluffy animals! I value individuality, being happy with no preconceptions and I love to share knowledge as well as confidence to feel good just the way we are. I like to see myself as a transparent and "no bullsh*t" kind of person, although to some people that may skim on arrogance every once in a while. I could live just out of pizza, lasagna, some juicy mushrooms (give me mushrooms!) and sushi.
I'm the queen of messy hair since I was born (with some pics to prove it) and I don't like know what it is to have an hair-do for longer than two minutes per day.
I am passionate about art, skincare, and beauty since I can remember. I love the silence and the peace that a bicycle ride on a fresh sunny morning brings to my soul. Last but not least, I believe that one day the world will be ruled by cats and jelly gums.

The blog


Wit Konijn was born, in October 2015, out of an impulse for sharing the knowledge that I have growing inside me. I believe that it's in sharing our experiences and knowledge that lays the secret to help one another and nothing gives me more pleasure.
From Wit Konijn you can expect a mix of personal stories and experiences, tasty recipes, DIY projects, places worth visiting, beauty tips and very soon some photography tips too. In between all that, of course, I have some spare space for anything else you might enjoy seeing here, just let me know!
