Food Coma

I have just suffered a food coma. It was a great overdose of Iranian food and mint tea and a great company of my Egyptian friend Cherry. It was a walk in the city centre and a fresh breeze from the sea, first glimpse of Christmas tree all lit up. Warm tea and orange cake…

Denmark Gave Me a Warm Hug

Denmark felt cozy and familiar. The cool breeze. The modernity and the colourful Nyhavn, even the storm just before we left for the airport that felt like Denmark was telling us not to leave. The best moments in life usually have something to do with food.For me it was the moment I have bitten into…

When I Did Absolutely Nothing

I did have plans. Laundry, invoices, car clean, bunch of emails. What have I done? Absolutely nothing. But I managed to drink a lot of coffee, finished a book, took a nap and went out for mussels and fries. I guess all the chores will have to wait till tomorrow.

To my (less than) dear friend

You have been following me for years and I have mixed feelings about you. You keep me up at night spending ours sorting out my wardrobe because you don’t let me sleep and then let me bang my head on a desk when I doze off in the day. You leave me confused if it…

Minsk. Are you sure?

This was the answer I got when I mentioned to my family that I would like to take them for a little trip to Belarus. A few weeks later after some research and a bit of paperwork, past the green uniformed officers with very official looking faces and using some serious magnifying glass to inspect…

Out in Manchester

It must be the tight space on this flight or the early get up at 3am this morning. I was going to write some profound and life changing but I will rather show you a few pictures instead. This is one of my favourite summer outfits for being out and about in my favourite city…

Out of Office

I have parked my car in the driveway, put my black dress and awfully painful heels in the closet, put the pizza in the oven and a box set on TV.
I am out of office till tomorrow with no access to my email. In urgent cases call 911.

Diagnose: Pragueholic

I have always liked a good road-trip and there is no better time for cruising around than summer. My next adventure starts only in a few weeks and involves stops in Brussels, Warsaw, Prague, Minsk, Riga, Vilnius and Tallinn. A bit of a craziness to fit all this in 9 days! First stop: Prague. But…

24 hours in Cologne

I decided to do something a bit different and go and find the cheapest flight out of the UK. And it was Cologne. So I packed the tiniest luggage I ever had for an overseas trip and headed to the airport. Here are a few pictures from the amazing trip. If you go to Cologne…

Little black dress

The feeling when you stand in front of the wardrobe feeling like there is nothing you can wear. Thirty minutes later and with a room full of clothes scattered all over the floor I have grabbed a lifesaver. A little black dress. I added a red bag and high heels. I felt fabulous that night.

Santorini

Santorini is like a white and a blue dream. It is a deep blue sea, black rocks, white cottages, blue roofed churches. And a view. Breakfast with a view, shopping with a view, dipping yourself in a pool with a view… You just cannot escape the view. Leaving Santorini feels a bit like a break…

Wet Weekend…

🙄 When I saw the weather forecast for the weekend I decided not to believe it. And indeed it was another wet weekend in Wales… the problem is that my Jack Russel terrier hates wet weather and refuses to put her paws outside. This weekend I have tasted literally all coffee shops in North Wales…
