june flowers

my friend is getting married on friday! i’m making a tiny bouquet for her. i’m thinking maybe wide open, white peonies and fluffy snowballs…? in the meantime, i’m enjoying these friends here. i wish peonies season was never over. 

strawberry bundt & mom’s home

happy morther’s day to all moms out there! i don’t know a lot about motherhood (none to nothing, really). because, unlike many of my friends, i haven’t had this urge to have a baby of my own. but i’m starting to think that it would definitely be wonderful to have a daughter, one day, to...

wild herb gathering

remember the crazy chai pear and chocolate pudding tart…? that’s when the collaboration (though, in all honesty, we stick to calling it ‘playing around’, actually) between photographer extraordinaire christine benz and my humble (aspiring food stylist, ahem) self started. by now, we’re already two days, several hours of hard, sweaty work and a couple more...

blooms & bubbly cocktail

sometimes, a tiny thing like a weekend spent away with friends, celebrating the marriage of a beautiful couple, is all it takes to change perspectives. i was rather exhausted and a bit burnt out last week before the blissful weekend in the mountains. but it was so filled with love that i can’t help but...

ranging the woods

pictures say more than words. so i leave you to enjoy the wild, young greens and the soft forest light! i spent a couple of days in the woods those past weeks, to see what wild garlic (bärlauch), beech tree leaves, dandelion, sorrel and other wild things do. well, they’re all ready to kick winter’s...

spring skin routine

when spring is near and nature is ready to wake up, i seek ways to get rid of the old and start anew. i want to declutter my whole house, go running as often as possible (once a week should do, surely?) and basically try new things. along with the more obvious changes, my skin...

chestnut layer cake

a friend’s birthday a while back resulted in frenzied, last minute baking. i assured her i would bring a couple of things from my kitchen – including a tart tatin with beetroots. well, i made said tart. but let’s just leave it at that: it wasn’t very good. more like, maybe, a sandstorm. when i...

layer cake teaser

i spent all of saturday cooking, baking, styling, dreaming up and taking pictures of baked goods. actually, nothing new, right? technically yes. but it’s a new project i would like to announce. a cooperation, of sorts, between a very talented photographer friend (more about her soon) of mine and me. meaning: while i was baking...

2013 in review

this is 2013, the year it was. a good one, overall. beautiful moments, meaningful events, long hugs, fresh air, unknown places (like amsterdam) and new learnings. if 2014 is half as blessed, i’m thankful. let the fun begin, or, to take one step after another, get started with a shower, maybe? yeah, gross. cheers, loves!
