There’s no magic. Only hope. And small steps and little things – a sweeter day, a laugh, good news, a reflection that less and less dictates my choices and that I want to own again… Mikasa Beauty, a company that specializes in delivering quality makeup brushes, allowed me to do just that. Owning my body and making it my kind of pretty and healthy again.

Sunday Comfort Breakie Bowl

Sunday Comfort Breakie Bowl

The return of summer weather is, for me, synonym for the return of smoothie bowls as breakfast! I usually prepare them on Sundays, when I don’t work, and have time to take time. Take time to wake up, walk down to the kitchen, take out all of my ingredients and toppings of all sorts, as well as cut my fruits into slices or little bits without being in a rush…

Sour and Sweet Choco, Banana & Raspberry Overnight Oatmeal Bowl

I live for myself and not for others…”, I keep on repeating myself… So I must put myself first, and give priority to my own life. I must be my first choice, my number one option. And I mustn’t – ever again – let anyone make me believe I have no worth.

A day in Nancy

A day in Nancy

The sun was with us that day, and despite the modern part of the town I found fairly dull, I came back delighted thinking of the majestic cobblestoned Place Stanislas, its gold decorations and immense gates at each corner, as well as the sun visors of the boutiques that have made a home of the square, all looking like those of sweet shops from a time I have neither known or lived in.

A Sunday stroll in Saucourt

A Sunday stroll in Saucourt

A few weeks ago, my mum and I visited my aunt and uncle in Haute-Marne, in north-eastern France. We made the most of these few days at the heart of landscapes rather different from those we are used to living in and that we know, i.e. Burgundy’s vineyards and its small, so atypically charming villages. A three-hour drive up north away, everything is flat and there are immense stretches of gigantic pine forests.

Almond, Banana, and Blueberries Overnight Oatmeal

There are nights when we eat less and know perfectly well that we’ll be starving the next morning! So as prevention is better than cure, those nights, I tend to prepare my unicorn magic potion, that’s to say a filling overnight oatmeal, flavoured with the things that pique my tasting buds at that moment…

Coconut & Curry Zucchini Savoury Porridge, topped with Goat Cheese & Coriander

Coconut & Curry Zucchini Savoury Porridge, topped with Goat Cheese & Coriander

A culinary creation? It is a trip that always sort of starts the same way… faraway memories and cravings for flavours surfacing again, associations coming to mind simply and naturally. It is a little muddled ‘je-ne-sais-quoi’ at the beginning, which is slowly cleared to give birth to pretty plates, fruits of the moment’s cravings.
