A blueberry kind of weekend

I get excited for blueberries. This weekend it was about breakfasts and pancakes.

Je m’excite quand c’est la saison des myrtilles. Ce weekend je me suis régalée aux petits déjs et aux pancakes.

“The best love is the kind that awakens the soul, and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds.”

Care Package from Melbourne

I just love getting packages from home. Australian products, things I miss, cards from loved-ones. It’s easy to feel as though you’re losing touch with your home town or country when you are away for so long. I am incredibly glad to be visiting Melbourne in September.

Two of my favourite people sent me this care package that arrived on a rainy day and it gave me a piece of home and brightened my day.

Russh magazine. A great Australian magazine that isn’t quite mainstream so you can read about interesting brands and people that are yet to be revealed in the mainstream culture.

This uplifting body lotion by Australian Bush Essences is just beautiful. Citrus is a very uplifting smell and opens up your chakras in the morning when you sometimes wake up a little foggy. All ingredients are Australian: Banksia, Billy goat plum, Five corners, Flannel flower, Mulla Mulla, Old man Banksia, She Oak, Wisteria. The earthy and natural smells make me miss my country.

And last but not least this Indah Organics meditation balm. Cardamom is such a winner. The founder of Indah, Teisha Lowry, is also a coconut oil lover like me.

Morning Juice

There is no better way to start your day than with a fresh juice. Full of vitamins, gets your metabolism going and makes you feel bright and alive!

This particular juice was lemon, blood orange and luke warm water. Don’t have cold water first thing in the morning, it’s too hard on your system after sleeping.

Is Your Love Big Enough?

Did you know that flowers have been proven to increase happiness levels? Scientists have proven this, so it isn’t a myth. The presence of flowers triggers happy emotions, heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects social behavior in a positive manner far beyond what is normally believed. And if that’s not enough…Flowers have an immediate impact on happiness. All study participants expressed “true” or “excited” smiles upon receiving flowers, demonstrating extraordinary delight and gratitude. This reaction was universal, occurring in all age groups.

So when is the last time you had fresh flowers in your home?

This Winter I’ll have ears

My latest purchase. I’m waiting impatiently for it to arrive. It’s the latest big thing in Asia, so it will probably hit Europe in the next few months. For the time being I’ll be a lone cat in Paris.

These girls look like perfect dolls with cat ears.

The hat is 100% felt wool, perfect for the chilly days in Paris town.

A unicorn and deer afternoon in Paris

To make life sweeter, I love my afternoon latté and a little treat. On Thursday I decided to get myself a handful of choukettes (a delightful little puff of French pastry with sugar on top- not to be overdone in quantity). Coffee time is so cosy at the moment here in my apartment because the sun goes down early and I turn on the big lamp on our living room which gives a honey glow to the room and I sink into the couch with my latté.

I am so smitten with my new cups from Claudia from Superfumi.

Being Australian, I absolutely love European animals because my childhood was koalas, kangaroos and possums. I find deers so precious. Their big eyes! Obviously my unicorn obsession is just because I’m a girly girl.

 

I highly reccomend you visit her Etsy shop here because she has a new range that just came out. All of the products are handmade in the UK.

What treats do you have planned for the weekend?

Roses, Petals and Elephants on a Holiday

Flowers make me so happy. And I always put petals in cards and presents when I am giving somebody a gift. Seem ridiculous? Yes, but I live for that kind of small detail.

I am drying petals to make cards for Christmas.

The pink rose matched my coca cola bottle vase so perfectly- I just had to!

And I cannot forget Ganesh who needed a bit of cheering up on this cold, dark Winters day in Paris.

How did you spend your day?
