This week, I drove to Art Basel with my mum. It was a spontaneous decision we took last week, and since it was such a last-minute trip, we drove there from Fitou, France. It took us about 9 hours there and even more hours back, so we had a lot of time to talk about life and other things.
One topical issue we discussed is related to Brexit. It should be a question, or several, to answer from time to time regardless, but the Brexit thing sure speeds things up with all its uncertainties.Continue reading
I consider myself a very organised person. Since I don’t work an office job, I plan my week and days, I have lists and I enjoy ticking off an item done.
I have not been feeling very productive these past days. This one always says you don’t have to be productive all the time, which I understand, but I enjoy being productive. I like the feeling of getting things done and it relaxes me knowing what I’ve accomplished.Continue reading
In my first blog post this year, I wrote a list of goals/habits that I’d like to achieve in 2017. They were all more or less specific enough to be able to hold myself to it, check in regularly to see where I am at and if they are still realistic.
I thought 2 months into the year (I know, it’s already March!) is a good time to give an update:
Or rather, more like my style, since it took me a lot longer than Marie Kondo would have probably liked.
It all started with me jumping on the bandwagon of the best-selling book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying: A simple, effective way to banish clutter forever a year ago. I just looked at my order history, and I purchased it on 1 January 2016. I suppose, new year, new me, new clean and tidy flat here we come!
It took me another month before I read the book. It is an easy read, nothing super intellectual and makes you feel right at home, or shall I say, it made me feel at home. It may have something to do with how I was raised, my cultural background, but something just clicked.Continue reading
Last year I turned 30, took the afternoon off of work to celebrate only to find myself with my camera taking photos to capture this oh-so-great-once-in-a-lifetime moment. Almost a year on from that, I found the folder of photos during a winter-clean-up session and thought it would be fun to do a little time lapse video. Forward a few hours, a flight and an afternoon spent selecting the perfect music for this at a pub, here is the result.
Time flies, they say and they are right! It’s been four years I’ve been married to this guy and it genuinely feels like it’s been a lot longer than that.
I guess what makes it feel like well more than it should (only joking) are the many adventures we found ourselves on over the past years. I’ve had to backtrack where we’ve been and what we’ve seen and here are a few highlights. I’m trying not to get too sappy, but there is certainly an “aww” photo at the end of the post, if you feel like skipping all the other carefully curated ones.
So here we go!
