Hey hey you!
I hope you are doing well and that Fall gives you cocooning ideas! On my side, Fall has always been an inspiring season, and I am preparing some special recipes for the blog, so stay tuned! And if like me you are a Pinterest fanatic, come visit my Fall board! :D
Today I wanted to share with you my fashion selection for Fall. I am taking Photoshop classes with the talented Perrine, and this article is a great occasion to train myself to detouring & layout. Plus, I really enjoy collages: it is like shopping without harming your wallet! I hope you will like my boho-chic picks. The items come from H&M, Zara, Anthropologie, and Kate Spade.
See you soon!
I just spent a few days with my aunt, Mimi, at her house just outside Lyon. She loves crafts and culinary experiments. Voilà — my future me! If you’ll remember, I introduced you to Mimi last year in an exposé of her well-decorated home, a former farm house she entirely refurbished in a bohemian style.
Our list of activities for the two past days: picking fruits and veggies at a nearby organic farm; complaining (we’re French, after all) about the fact said farm doesn’t grow kale yet; and mutual recipe sharing. Something I love about Mimi is that she loves weird mixes. If I tell her I am curious about avocado cooked in a dessert, she bursts with enthusiasm. After some discussion, we came up with a detox smoothie recipe. We enjoyed the smoothie with some green tea pastries (here) in front of a girly reality TV show.
Big-ups to Mimi <3
See you soon,
My recipe – for 4 people:
Mix in a blender:
– 1 avocado
– 2 cups of vanilla soy milk
– 2 big spoonfuls of honey
– Seeds (to decorate and add the mandatory hipster touch)
Serve very cold :)
I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful summer, and I share your excitement to be on the starting blocks for an incredible back-to-school/work season. For my part, I have some surprises on my plate — I can’t wait to tell you about it. It’s the kind of opportunity that changes someone’s life. I’ve been waiting for a while, and it finally seems to be happening. You’ll know soon about it — I promise!
But for now, let’s talk about do-it-yourself!
Holy knit! I was looking for a beaded sweater that I can both afford and wear at work. I have seen many in the shops lately, but I finally decided to make it myself. I found diamond beads and sequins in my favorite Parisian bead shop ((Mercerie Orsel, 9 rue d’Orsel) and customized my Zara knit sweater (on sale, a bargain!) with embroidered sparkly flowers. I like the result, but next time I will look for larger sequins for a more lavish effect.
I hope you enjoy the result, too. Leave a comment if you do :)
And since I definitely love you, here is an exclusive behind-the-scenes vi
Hello you all!
I hope you are enjoying the last days of summer, either sipping cocktails near a pool, or at work!
Today I want to share a recipe that was really successful among my colleagues, a few weeks ago: green tea madeleines. If you follow me on Facebook and Pinterest you saw my melting chocolate heart madeleines recently. But you know me, and you know I love to remix recipes with exotic ingredients, so today: let’s welcome green tea, the star of Japanese desserts! After all, what is more conforting than a couple of madeleines with a warm tea to forget about the unusual August rain? Well, if you beg me enough, I might publish the chocolate recipe too ;)
I wish you a nice, cosy, and sweet week-end!
