How was your weekend? Mine was good but with a very unsuccessful attempt at pad thai... ha! I have been planning to make it and finally did to admit it was a little insipid, far from tasting like those at great restaurants. This week I'll be reconnecting with some friends I've been working on meeting with for a while, actually for a long time, and I can honestly say it feels pretty good!

We all suffer from stress and this article about changing the threat of stress, gives great advice on how to deal with it, turn it around and build something new from it.

I first heard of Cindy Gallop a while ago when I saw a presentation she made about how much our world has changed the idea of love and physical connections, this video is part of her work to make us see things the way they should be.

This fig tartlet has my mouth watering and making plans to hunt fresh figs in my area... hmm!

I love this Clothing Rack made at home... i think we all need one for those clothes we try over and over again on days we just don't know what to wear.

Finally, a little Blackberry Drink to welcome the new week, you can make it without the alcohol and still keep it refreshing... Cheers!

Have a great week!


  1. The clothes rack and blackberry dreink looks amazing!! Sorry the pad thai didn't work out, but keep at it, am sure it will get better :)) Happy Monday xx

    And I want to make pad thai so bad. SO BAD.
