Freshly picked

Leave a Comment

Spring has sprung here in Brussels. Since the confinement started, we haven't had a day of rain - which for Brussels is completely crazy. We have had the most gorgeous weather over the last few weeks and it helps so much with not feeling confined and being able to do some gardening, work on my tan lines and go for evening strolls. At this point, I just feel like I'm back in my childhood - minus meeting my friends with my bike - just no stress, no pressure, living day by day...
I couldn't resist cherry blossom season and picked myself some fresh flowers to decorate my mom's house. They were so beautiful and instantly put me in a happy mood. Little things...
Fashion wise, do you see a theme here? White, jeans, more white, repeat. Casual glam in full force. I will not be SLOTHING around during this Q-tine. lol. I have been online shopping so much for summer in hopes I'll be able to travel by then but let's not be too excited... we'll see.

The Cookie Monster

Sleeping, baking, snacking, wine, more wine, video conference, more wine, snacking, repeat.
Life these days. Oh I forgot, go for groceries. My only reason to get dressed up and go out.
My Q-tine look is all about casual glam, you don't want to look like you tried too hard at the groceries  - we are in a health pandemic - but at the same time, I don't want to look like I completely gave up on life and live in a ruth. So you got to give hope to people by showing up looking fresh a fucking daisy. That's my contribution to fighting the Rona.. lol


I've tried this recipe from Levain Bakery (the famous cookies in NYC) and they turned out well considering I didn't have half of the specific ingredients required. I think at this point they're just regular cookies. But still delish...

The green escape

Leave a Comment

I'm sooooo thankful I live close to a very green area of Brussel and get to escape whenever I feel like it. Really help me stay grounded and get that bowl of fresh air on the daily. Also, eating my green is helping (with a little fresh burrata on top of course, I'm not THAT heatlthy).So good and filling. It's my go to daily meal if I don't have any inspiration. It is low carb and delicious. Yessssss, meal goal.

Feeling zesty

Leave a Comment

Spring weather has hit Brussels finally.
Since the lockdown, we've had the most gorgeous blue sky every single day - coincidence?? I think not...- and I'm LOVIN' IT. It really cheers my mood up.Another thing that really is helping me through cover-19 is baking. I made this amazing lemon glazed cake with my signature vodka - San Pellegrino - lime - low cal bitch drink and it was everything I needed. I was feeling super zesty and oh boy I got the Z E S T. This cake was an absolute delight : super easy to make and soooooooooo good. Literally. This is the recipe I have used (link :it's in French) but maybe you can Google translate? It's not that hard to do,  a few eggs + flour and zest of lemons... and you're good to go.
If you love anything citrus-e you will love this recipe!
