about the writer and this blog


about this online hub

The new www.aheartyhome.com 2.0 re-launched in May 2017 after a bit of soul searching and detoxing from the online world. With a slightly different approach to blogging I wish to create a space where I can document bits and pieces of my life and interests to inspire both me and you to embrace life, to celebrate food and to love our home.

I have kept three main categories to really make this a minimal and easy site to navigate: home, life and food. In home you will find inspiration from our home to yours, home organization and DIY's for actual spaces. In life I will share my life's stories as they come along, travels and all kinds of musings on life related topics. In food you will find recipes and other food and health related posts.

I have chosen to archive old blog posts in the back end of the site. After falling out of love with blogging just a little bit, I wanted a fresh new start to build a more personal space that is inspiring, beautiful and minimal, no longer crowded with old, out of sync blog posts, both in content and in lay-out.


hi! I'm Margot ...

I'm a 27-year-old creative from Belgium, trying to find my way in life, together with my partner in crime Ruben.

I'm a wannabe: photographer, writer, musician, interior decorator, healthy cook/baker and DIY-er. 

I'm a real: dreamer, philosopher, bookworm, tv series addict, supernatural science fiction lover, urban jungle enthusiast, soul searcher, primary school teacher & blogger.

I like things cosy, beautiful and made for living a full life but secretly I am super messy. Like ... sirens and flashing red lights messy! My family and friends will totally confirm that.

Ruben and I moved into our own apartment a year and a half ago. Till this day it's still in the process of being built into a home for us and maybe one day our family.
