This week has come and gone kinda in a flash. Between running mundane errands, sending pre Christmas presents and getting back to my yoga practice, I also spent quite a bit of time making scary amounts of hummus and spinach pie for a private event. Now I’m more than ready for the weekend, which will include more cooking (a chocolate bundt cake with salted caramel is in the cards), Christmas decoration planning and research for the best holiday gifts out there. Have a great one y’all! [READ MORE]

I have been waiting for this Friday & weekend for quite some time now. I’m off to WIRED16 for a day which I believe will be filled with stimulating discussions and presentations (plus delicious food). Later today I’m going to Cotswolds with our London family for three days spent in a gorgeous cottage in the countryside. There will be lots of food, some post Halloween fun and other shenanigans for which I couldn’t be happier. Hope you have a similarly naughty and inspiring end of the week. [READ MORE]

Halloween is just around the corner and I could not be happier: our house is filled (ok, not filled, since Mike does not embrace the holiday with the same enthusiasm) with pumpkins, spider webs, bats and skeletons and today I’m making a sufficiently spooky dessert (check back on Monday for the recipe). There’s also a number of (mildly) scary movies on my list, a bit of prep to do for my costume and lots of seasonal candy to try. In the meantime, we’ll be spending the weekend with friends over dinner and brunch and on Sunday I’ll be going to Borough Market with my lady friends, celebrating Apple Day. Hope your weekend is also sufficiently spooky- and if that’s not your thing, sufficiently relaxed and fun. Have a good one! [READ MORE]

With October in full swing, I’ve finally managed to get back on a semi-satisfying everyday routine. While it’s still quite a pain for me to get up in morning (so cold!) and I hate seeing the day shrinking already, I’m positively giddy about a few upcoming things. We were gonna go surfing with a couple friends this weekend, but since Mike’s busy and I’m slightly under the weather, the next couple of days and the following week will be spent shopping for Halloween supplies and testing some sufficiently spooky recipes. There’s also quite a bit of planning to do for a countryside weekend with friends, and a new cozy scarf I can’t wait to live in for the next few months. All in all, cold and gloominess are quite nicely balanced, at least for the time being. Hope you’re all also enjoying these fall days. Happy Friday! [READ MORE]

It feels like forever since I properly sat down to write here. After a long summer, our crazy kickass wedding, a week in London which felt like a second and a honeymoon in California which felt like cheating on my husband with the coolest & hottest man ever, I’m back. Like properly back. Officially back. I got apples, pears* and pumpkins for y’all, a Halloween cake, a spicy & refreshing beef salad and a couple other tricks up my sleeves- which are now long and made of wool because fall has officially arrived here in London. As much as I miss the California heat and my summer dresses, I have to say this back to school feeling is kinda cool. And to embrace it even further, here’s a couple season-appropriate stories. Happy (proper) fall y’all! [READ MORE]

After a dreamy four day stay in Big Sur, we hit San Francisco and spent the last couple of days in Napa Valley. Even though I think I’ve left part of my heart in Carmel, these two days in the wine country have probably been my favourite. The scenery, the vines and cypress trees, the fragrant air and gorgeous weather have absolutely enchanted me- not to mention that a time spent drinking beautiful wine and eating the best seasonal food is always a time very very well spent. We’re off to Yosemite in a couple hours, where we’ll spend just over a day before heading back to our base, LA. I can’t wait to take in all the views to come and I’m quite excited for the hikes we have planned, but I’m still stuck in a wine state of mind- hence today’s Food for thought. Cheers to great weekend, y’all! [READ MORE]

We’ve been in LA since Wednesday and I’m already kinda in love with the place. The weather, the palm trees, the iconic landmarks and beautiful houses, plus the delicious food I’ve tasted so far, have all stolen my heart. Our schedule for the next couple of days will include a couple hikes up the hills and a day in Malibu, before we head up to Big Sur and Napa for a week. Hope you’re all having an equally inspiring time wherever you are. Happy weekend, y’all! [READ MORE]

We’re back in London and I really have lots of mixed feelings about it. Our tiny apartment feels tinier, yet cuter than ever and the city’s hustle and bustle is driving me crazier than before. Yet meeting up with friends and exchanging summer stories and being back in my kitchen makes it all worth it. Having something exciting to look forward to also helps: we’re leaving for our California honeymoon in a few days and I couldn’t be happier! We’ll start things off in LA and then working our way up the North. [READ MORE]

I’ve spent the first half of this week in Athens, doing all sorts of wedding prep and cursing (over the heat and said prep); the second half was spent mostly by the beach, re-reading Around the World in Eighty Days, dreaming of India and Phileas Fogg as my wedding planner. Here’s to a dreamy, stress-free weekend! [READ MORE]
