To live in Switzerland and so close to the mountains feels like such a blessing. I’ve always liked to venture out into the snow and go skiing and snowboarding. And since I’m not under my parents’ roof anymore I love to go hiking (side note: used to throw a tantrum when I was little whenever “walking” was even mentioned… Sorry, mom & dad). Switzerland is the much referenced “winter wonderland” and a tourist’s dream destination. And since it’s my home I don’t brag about it every day, but I really feel so blessed to live in such a beautiful country.
Time is running so fast… I can’t believe my little munchkin is almost 2 months old. And that this means that I’ve been at home for almost two months. The two best months of my life so far. As a mom (and a housewife, admittedly) – the best job in the world. Even if it means you only ever get to do and cook things one-handedly… lol.
Hello folks, I’m back! Happy new year? Question mark, because that’s probably not in place, given that’s it already February. Ha! But hey, it sure is a happy new year for us, and of course I’d like to share our happiness with you. Because what is it that they say: love and happiness gets bigger when shared. SO the major change in our lives is…
Hey friends! I’m back with a bang and some chocolate, ha! I’ve been busy working – also creating recipes, styling, taking pictures… But just not on this space. At least not as often as i would have loved to. If you’ve read my latest post, you know that there are a few things happening in my life. We got married in November in a beautiful, intimate, family-only civil wedding celebration. I’m officially a misses now *swoon*. Over the moon with joy!
Hey Lovers of all things pretty! I’m back to this (strangely strange) space. Hello, blogosphere, it’s me, the foreigner, just checking in. And I brought chocolate…! To compensate and win you over, you know? Kind of. Lol, no, honestly. I hardly remember how to do this thing called “blogging” anymore. It’s been wayyyy too long since I last posted something, anything, properly, other than on good ol’ Insta, anyway. Although there has been so much goodness in my life – both the edible and the non-edible but rather emotional and experiences kind, laugh. But listen up, first things first… Because: ICE CREAM! And then, well, I’ve got some real-life, full-on news to share…
Whenever I see a good DIY project – which happens a lot when you’re a Pinterest addict, like me – I think to myself: “oh, I want to try this!”. I will bookmark it lovingly and archive it under my crafts boards. But then, the likelyhood and truth is I’ll probably never start anything, really. The reason is. well, I’m not as good with my hands as I would like to.
Yes, I’ve made my fair share of flower bouquets (almost a Pro in that field) and greenery wreaths (for the Holidays and other). I’m obsessing over handwriting and lettering, and am an avid learner in the caligraphy field. But I’m not really getting over the “larning stage” there…
Dear readers and friends, today I feel especially honored to be able to share with you a project that I was able to participate in. I got to represent no lesser brand than Piaget. And honestly…? They had me at Piaget, haha. Girls… we’re really sooo simple. Who wouldn’t say yes to having your pictures taken in a candy sweet – and pink! – environment, wearing Piaget Possession jewelry from head to toe…? Exactly. Kind of every woman’s (and little girl’s) dream. There is now a voting open for you to decide who’s going to win the Piaget contest. Me along 19 other beautiful and strong women. I have to say… I don’t want to be the voter… So tough to pick just one favorite!
These past weeks have been a lesson in so many things… Self-control and patience, mainly. But also, how to unwind after a very stressful day. How to not take things personally. How to be gentle. And also (unnecessarily) how to trouble shoot. The lesson I’ve learned is: there is no such thing as a perfect thing. Even if you planned everything meticulously, Karma will find a way to fuck it up. Sounds so negative? No, actually… Continue reading
I’m super happy – because today is my day off…! It’s been a while since my last leisurely day, it’s been a while. So I finally get back to blogging a bit. Double yay! Of course, I’m not planning on spending the day doing nothing… No. I’ve got a full schedule. First, I’m going to the market for some fresh blooms.
When I think of my last proper (read: longer than a weekend, backpacking and free like a bird king of) travels, I think of 2003 (you guys!) when I travelled to Thailand. It was so fabulous! Busy Bangkok and beautiful beaches. And the food… OMG! Da best. Thailand got me forever hooked on coconut, curries, rice in all shapes, exotic fruits and pad thai (because what’s not to like, right?). One thing I’ve been craving ever since that one, serendipitous dinner / dessert at Tango in Bangkok is “sticky rice”. Sticky rice aka the best thing since sliced bread.
