Ensemble, c’est tout – Pancakes tous simples

[Together, that’s all – Very simple pancakes] It was a morning like no other. That day, we woke up to clouds around us. Some call it fog, but living in the clouds somehow feels more right. I went down to the kitchen. And started putting pieces back together. One at a time: bottles by the […]

Du pain sur la planche

[Bread on the board]* Other than grazing at the London sky for hours, being stuck in bed for the past six days has also given me the chance to learn that Oxford University is sort of breaking-up with the Oxford comma – now, we have a problem here; my life depends on serial commas (and […]

China town

gerrard street, W1D 6JN I’ve been living in a world made of pillows, blankets and duvet covers. It could be the most cosy place in the world – and usually feels like it – but right now, I dream of a trip to China town. Have a bubble tea*. With extra tapioca, of course. And […]

Mon écureuil

[My squirrel] I might have a new friend. Same face. Same place. Just a couple of months later. And yes, just as I did before, I’m writing this from a bed*. Wrapped in a blanket. With an army of medicines on my bedtable. *It seems like whenever I’m ill I have squirrels** on my mind. […]

Bonjour juillet

[Hello July] The first night of July smelled like freshly-cut grass. We could hear planes over our heads and, at that exact moment, it reminded me the evening we spent sat on the sidewalk by the motorway. Watching cars go by in silence. A few days later, I woke up to the sound of rain […]

One night of magic rush

I had forgotten how purposeless words can hold a special meaning. Just like driving endlessly on the smallest roads, with no possibility whatsoever to get lost since we have no destination. And it feels like a moment outside of time. Where the only music is the sound of our hearts and the dreams we had. […]

Le Mirazur

When the view from our table looked like sun sparkles, green leaves and just enough coral to guess the town of Menton, we really didn’t think that things were about to get better. And yet, we knew. Because of all the beautiful words we’d read about Mauro Colagreco. Because – and it sometimes doesn’t mean […]

Les pieds dans l’eau

A hard week ahead. For gold of the world, I wouldn’t change A thing. You’re my diamond. And yes, it is totally alright to make cheesy words feel ok by writing a haiku. The treasure of my life is going to have a tough day and week. But I’m rather confident she will work her […]

love like a sunset

Bonjour juin

[Hello June] More than ever, this year, june feels like a new start. A kiss goodbye under the rain. Metaphorically and literally. Also the first time I won’t be able to wish my grand-father his birthday. May has been lovely. And way too fast. I still have to tell you about France. And everything that […]

Bonjour mai

[Hello May] So apparently, May started a week ago. I would love to say that I remember how beautiful the golden hour of the very fist day of the month; but the truth is I don’t. What I know, though, is how amazing the days to come are going to be. A flight to France […]

NOPI kitchens


21 warwick street, W1B 5NE http://www.nopi-restaurant.com/ The perfect day needs no more than a person I love as much as he finds me annoying, and enough drinks and food to keep us going – let’s be honest, mostly drinks. It might get even perfect-er with the addition of bright-green grass to lay on, and a […]

45 northcote road, SW11 1NJ Possibly on of the few reasons I love Clapham Junction, this café makes the best breakfast. All day long. And this is worth more than words can say. At least, from where I stand, it is. You know that kind of place that makes your days better. That makes you […]

Bonjour avril

[Hello April] Last night, I might not have been there when the flap clock on my wall roared and clicked – just like the train-station departures board of my grand-mother’s village – but I could feel that April was around the corner. I’m not going to lie. March went down faster than expected. And with […]

A trip in nothingness, through the pentax

I don’t really know where to start about my – our – recent getaway to Cornwall. I have seen landscapes so beautiful my eyes hurt. I have eaten food so delicious my taste-buds remember. I have driven so much I feel the speed of the motorways at night. It was like a dream. In nothingness. […]
