A PEEK AT MY WEEK No. 3

•••
The world of blogging is a confusing and bizarre but wonderful world. The first time I went to an official "blogger event" (about half a year ago), I remember walking through the door with my big but nervous smile and saying hi to the first person I came across. She looked me up and down, barely smiled and turned around without saying a word. Safe to say,[...]

HOW TO MAKE PERFECT PANCAKES

•••
I've never posted this recipe on my blog because I figured it was too simple but recently so many people have been asking me how to get perfect looking pancakes without a special pancake pan, without separating the egg whites, etc. and there are a few little things I have learnt along the way as I have made a TON of pancakes. Now excuse me while I geek ou[...]

MY FAVOURITE FLEA MARKET FINDS

•••
I'm so excited to be teaming up with Tanya and Sarah from The Lausanne Guide today! For those of you in the region, I'm almost certain you're already a regular reader as it's by far the best guide to Lausanne you can find. I've been following TLG for ages - it's my go-to when I'm looking to discover a new restaurant and it keeps me up-to-date with what's goi[...]

A PEEK AT MY WEEK No. 2

•••
I've been working independently for just over 3 months now and there have been huge highs and naturally, huge lows. I'd say there are two major challenges that I've been tackling recently. On the one hand, there are the business challenges that come with working independently - making a steady income and piecing together a financially viable business model f[...]

APRIL FAVOURITES

•••
I'm a little bit late with this post as I reckon ideally I should probably post a favourites video at the end of the month but I thought it would be fun to share some of my favourite beauty products, kitchen gadgets, posts and my favourite fail from throughout April! I hope you enjoy the video and I'd love to know what you think or what kind of videos[...]

CRUNCHY DRIED APPLE SLICES

•••
When I make a recipe that turns out exactly the way I imagine, I have to force myself not to eat all of whatever it is so someone else can try it and I can hear all those mmm yum sounds. But other times, a recipe is just so good I can't hold back and just finish the plate off right there and then. That's what happened with these apple chips. These are my [...]

MINI HERB HOUSE

•••
It's SPRING! Yay! Last night I had dinner out on the balcony for the very first time this year and it felt so good. I can't wait until the weather really warms up and I can get started on giving the balcony a little makeover. But for now, I'm doing what I can to make it feel like spring inside with this little DIY herb storage "house" for the kitchen. [...]

INVERTED BRAIDS FOR SHORT HAIR

•••
I've been promising that I would start creating more Youtube content for what feels like forever. I knew I wanted to film a tutorial for how to braid inverted braids after I posted this post so I actually booked an appointment at the hair dressers and forced myself to film it before the hair appointment as I knew it wouldn't work out quite as well with sligh[...]
