IT glitch, a little apology…

Dear all, please apologize for the shenanigans running on my site at the moment especially for those of you who have so kindly decided to subscribe to my blog. I intented yesterday to re-design my menu when, somehow I managed to delete it all! Needless to say I tried to fix it until far too late last night but things are not going according to plans.

I have alltogether decided to re-do it all and this is why some older posts might come your way again. Please bear with me, I am dealing myself with the logistics and all those IT aspects and I am pretty much learning as I go which means sometimes there are a few hitches….I hope you stick with me ūüôā

2 fantastic shops you must visit next time you are in Paris

During my last Paris visit, I was able to visit a couple of shops I had been wanting to discover by myself for a long time. Sometimes¬†I struggle to become fully excited about a place until I visit it and see it with my own eyes. However, having visited these 2 shops now, I can assure you, you won’t be disapointed!

Never doubt it, Paris is always a good idea!

I was lucky enough 2 weeks ago to return to my beloved hometown of Paris. With the arrival of our youngest and the busy life that turned out to be when you have 3 kids, I had not had a chance to visit this beautiful city in 3 long years. Finally, the stars aligned and I was able to spend a gorgeous 3-day weekend ‚ě°ÔłŹbeware, this a photo filled post¬†ūüėČ!

My non-alcoholic summer beverage of choice

_P1A7097internetSummer is fast approaching, although I must say in London we are still waiting for Spring to turn up;-) When the days get warmer and nicer, I sometimes crave for a nice fruity drink that does not involve alcohol. I discovered a couple of years ago a new kind of fruity and sparkling drink that I love: San Pellegrino fruit beverages. It’s a mix of sparkling water and concentrated juice which tastes delicious.

My 10 favourite‚Äč healthy snacks to power through the day

 

Healthy snack options

Hi all, I hope you’re having a good week. I am a nurse on duty these days with one child after another falling with illness…Being a mum is mentally and physically demanding. I always take a big breakfast (my favourite meal of the day as mentioned in a previous post) and don’t need to snack until lunch time in general. But in the afternoon, it’s a whole different story. I have moments of low blood sugar, low energy and I need substance and snacks to keep me going. Continue reading

My new Fashion crush is called….HUSH!

It’s taken me ages to find my style fashion wise and I made lots of mistakes over the years. Looking at old photos, I cringe in horror! Pinterest has massively helped me to find what I think is ME (I created a¬†My style board¬†which was a good starting point!) In terms of Fashion shopping, I have often bought clothes from a variety of shops but none has never quite matched my¬†newfound style. Well, that was until recently as I finally came across a brand that covers nearly all my styles and needs: it’s called HUSH.

Why you can never say no to a holiday in Spain!

Viva Espana

L’Homme and I love going away with the kids. We have done a fair share of UK holidays and quite a few in France too obviously (where I am from).¬†This year, I craved sunshine and I was desperate to return to Spain.

I come from a family where Spain has always had a special status. Continue reading

When wisteria takes over London

I have been blown away by the number of gorgeous houses in London featuring wisteria over their front door. Since my love for photography is getting bigger by the day I am paying more and more attention to the beauty surrounding me. So tonight I just fancied a small photo based post to share my love for Spring in London.

The bluebells’ hour at Emmets Garden

It’s that time of the year when lots of charming woods and gardens turn blue. It’s the bluebells season and the sight of those flowers fills me with joy.

After the snowdrops, crocuses and daffodils I am always delighted to see a new change of colours and the arrival of longer and milder days.

A tricolour vegetable and goat cheese tart with Jus-Rol

We are just back from a wonderful holiday in Spain and I am slowly readjusting to normal life here in London. Before we headed out, I was on a mission the clear the fridge and it’s always tricky to avoid any wastage. Dedicated to using most – if not all – of our fresh stuff I prepared this delicious ‘tricolour’ vegetable and goat cheese tart with a Jus Rol puff pastry.
