Diwali, festival of lights/Diwali, le festival indien des lumières

🇬🇧 Being a photography student, I’m always on the look out for fun, unique, colourful events in London to visit.

🇫🇷 Depuis que je suis devenue une étudiante en photographie je suis, peut être encore plus qu’avant, à la recherche d’événements colorés, sympas ou uniques qui feraient de bons sujets pour ma pratique de la photo sur Londres.

Wrap me up before you go go!/L’accessoire indispensable de mi-saison!

🇬🇧 It’s been chilly and then warmer and then chilly and then sunny and then rainy for the last few weeks in London, I’m really struggling to know what to wear each morning. The only way I get to deal with all those changes in temperature – me the ‘always feeling cold’ lady – is by having a large and soft scarf to wrap myself into.

A somptuous butternut squash and goat cheese pasta/Un plat de pates rafiné a la courge butternut et au fromage de chèvre

🇬🇧 I have tried and tested a wonderful, wonderful pasta recipe for you and it would be selfish not to share it with you. It’s the pumpkin, butternut squash season and it’s time to make the most of those delightful veg to create a beautiful pasta dish. All right, the time given on the recipe says 20mn, I would say it’s probably a bit longer, probably more around 30mn but it’s worth it if you are cooking it for a lovely friend, partner, husband. It’s definitely not the kind of dish I would cook just for the kids, they just would not appreciate the work that goes behind let alone the wonderful flavours.

A glorious late summer day at Hughenden Manor/Une superbe journée de fin d’été au Manoir de Hughenden

🇬🇧 We were in the UK for the last bank holiday of the summer and just decided to really make the most of it. Living in a 2 bedroom flat as a family of 5 has got at least one good thing: it encourages us to be out and explore as often as we can. We decided to head out for the day and have a pic-nic at the beautiful Hughenden Manor.

🇫🇷 Nous étions en Angleterre pour le dernier weekend de 3 jours du mois d’Aout et avec la météo qui nous était annoncé il nous fallait en profiter. Bien évidemment habiter a 5 dans un appartement est un élément supplémentaire  qui nous motive pour bouger et partir faire des petites excursions en famille!
