Ever since I had the first (proper) hot chocolate (memory) from real, melted chocolate (and, quite needless to say, not just from powder), I was hooked. There was no going back. I used to sip on such a rich, “real” chocolat chaud in the beautiful town of Aixe en Provence, in the South of France,Continue reading
“Gone fishing in the middle of nowhere” – how does this status update sound to you? It was what we actually and honestly did this summer during one blissful week: Fishing in Finland. Looking at the pictures now i feel a pang of longing.
Hei Hei, I’m back! Back from our little summer vacay in Finland – and already back (knee deep) at work. The holidays passed fairly quickly, then again, our stay in the rural log cabin in the lake country of Finland, near Kuopio, was magic and uplifting and also strangely felt like time stood still. I’mContinue reading
To start things off: I’m really sorry – crushed, actually – for that long absence from F&F! It’s been too long (you can tell this by spotting the peonies, who are clearly not late summer flowers, ahem… still very pretty though, and a shame to waste a perfectly good picture). Uncharacteristically, I’ve neglected this spaceContinue reading
Coconut is probably one of my favorite flavors… I don’t necessarily mean the (cheap) perfumes and body sprays (the term alone…) I used as a teenager. I admit I slightly overdid it with these. Much rather, I refer to the connotations of coconut with summer, sun and beaches – because obviously I’ve spent my beach vacations in Italy, where freshlyContinue reading
Funnily, this dessert, that I’ve eaten countless times during my childhood – mostly on garden party occasions in our back yard. But have since neglected, inexplicably, is apparently called “Swiss Roll”. At least, that what pinterest recently indicated it as. Around here, it’s simply known as a “Raspberry Roulade” or “Biscuit Roulade”, which I find slightly moreContinue reading
isn’t it so true when they say “summer time, and the living is easy”? i like the open-window kind of lifestyle. breezes sweeping through the flat, flowers in every corner, the balcony potted plants are growing like their weed (no pun intended), the more neutral tones gave way to summery, peachy tones, the bedding isContinue reading
although my wardrobe is pretty much stripped to basics and monochromatic tones, i still like color in my home. the fastest way to add a pop of color is with flowers, surely, or a couple of seasonal decorative pillows and throws.
i know it’s barely spring (although the weather has been treating us very nicely, lately), but i’m already in a summer state of mind. i’d like to go somewhere exotic, maybe tropic, or at least a little bit southern. somewhere with a beach with beautiful bright blue water and white sand. where they serve littleContinue reading
the times when easter was still all about egg hunts and finding your easter basket (that someone put together with much love and care) are long gone, yet especially on holidays like easter, i miss being a child. i’ve been awfully spoilt, that’s for sure, but i wouldn’t want to make it any other wayContinue reading
