Hey there, welcome on my blog! Super fun that you’re here. I’m Mandy Fisher, a 34 year old Dutch girl from Zaandam (a city next to Amsterdam), where I live with my boyfriend Wouter, daughter Zoey and French Bulldog Pip. I work as a graphic designer and content manager at a real estate office and in my spare time I work on this blog with lots of pleasure for almost 10 years.

I’m a girl with lots of hobbies: Cooking (and eating!), sports, being creative, traveling and doing fun stuff with my friends and family are high on my priority list. I’ve been scrapbooking for years, but that stopped when I started Project Life. Right now I’m only doing that digitally because of a lack of time. I do make lots of paintings, joined the planner society en I photograph about everything in my life. Most of that you’ll find here on my blog.

I’m also super active on social media. And by active, I mean addicted. So if you want to see more from me, just follow me on every social media!


Years ago I started making simple websites. to share my passions and lifestyle I started blogging about 10 years ago. Back then it was a lot about scrapbooking, arts and crafts. From time to time I shared a recipe or some pictures about fun events I went to. Since this is a lifestyle blog, it changes with me over time. I always did lots of sports and my parents found it imported that I eat healthy, but over the last couple of years a healthy lifestyle got more and more important.

What you’ll find on Dainty Dream:

RECIPES: Healthy, but most of all delicious meals are important to me. I love to try out new recipes and when I (and Wouter) approve them, I’ll share it on my blog. From fast breakfast recipes to amazing dinners, you’ll find it all right here!

SPORTS: I work out a lot, I do CrossFit, bootcamp and I run. I often go to sporty events, runs and CrossFit boxes, I write a little report about it afterwards.

TRIPS & TRAVELS: I rather go on vacation for a week than get myself 6 pairs of shoes. Traveling is one of my biggest passions and I always have Wanderlust. I’m sharing my travel tips, reports hotspots and some of the many photos I shoot right here on my blog.

ARTS & CRAFTS: Al my creative projects will be on my blog too. Most of all the name paintings I make, but also graphic design, drawings and paintings you’ll find here.

FREEBIES: As a graphic designer it’s very easy to me, to make stuff for myself. Like Project Life printables, planner printables and much more. I love to share this all with you guys!

PERSONAL: For years I’ve been keeping track of all the books I read and movies I see. I’m sharing this every month in my monthly reviews. From time to time I share some Snippets (phone photos) from fun days out. Every week you’ll find my Digital Project Life pages as some sort of photo diary. And don’t forget about my outfit posts.

Expect some other types of blogposts too!
