Balanced

Could the quest for healthy (I prefer to use the term of balanced) eating lead you to minimalism?  When one is thinking of minimalism, one probably pictures a Scandinavian home that looks stylishly bare. One could be thinking of just enough plates for a meal for the...

Winter Blue

January is often a struggle for a few reasons and the January blues is rather well known. The Christmas cheer has faded, the weather is cold and the days are still short. End of January sees the days getting longer, yet we still have a couple of weeks to go before...

Happy 2017!

A New Year is unfolding upon us and while many could not wait for 2016 to be over, my family and I have been really blessed during 2016. Our life change has been very positive, we are finding a new family balance and things fall into place not too slowly. I will write...

Black Friday

With our move to the UK and the change of life it has implied, I have been very attracted to the minimalist movement. Don’t get me wrong, I am far from being minimalist, I still own a lot of stuff and still shop more than I should. But my mindset is really...

I am Back!!!!

Barres Choco-Noisettes

I realised it has been a long time since I have posted a recipe… My last posts were a lot about reflecting, less about cooking (or baking). If you have been following me for some time, you know by now, that we are entering my preferred season of the year....

A conscious Christmas

Christmas frenzy has already started :::sigh::: For a week or more (!!), which is earlier than ever, shops have piled Christmas decorations and gifts. In this model, where consumerism is pushed always further, we can follow the movement or we can pause and think....

Winter Proof

Get your body ready for the winter   With the speedy and ultra busy modern rhythm of life, many of us have forgotten that our bodies follow the rhythm of Mother Nature. As the winter is coming, tree leaves are turning into beautiful colours as the sap is going down to...
