Meal Planning Tips

DSC_0936

For someone who likes making list, I am surprisingly bad at meal planning. I guess it boils¬†down to simply making and taking the time for it. I used to be quite good at it as a student- mostly because I had to be (I didn’t have a car to drive to the grocery store). So depending on which way you look at it, I might be the best or the worst person to offer advice on the subject. Either way here goes!

September Inspiration

Happy first day of Spring!

I went jogging yesterday and the change of the seasons has never been more apparent. The sun was beating on my back but in the distance I could see some snow left on the mountain peaks. I am glad summer is finally on its way!

Whilst there is no way for me to wish away another cold front, I do plan on indulging in some summer traditions like a fun manicure and over-wearing my stripes.

I also want to find the perfect shirt-dress and somehow master the cat eye, any and all tips welcome! If the amazing weather we’ve had this weekend holds up, a trip to the beach would definitely be on the cards.

Lastly I’ve found this really cute DIY bow bracelet on A Pair, A Spare and couldn’t resist sharing. I have no idea where I am going to find a gold bow, but it is so pretty that there was no way I could keep it to myself.

I hope you enjoy the first month of spring! For all my Northerners, keep warm this autumn with loads of hot choc, I might join you when the next cold front hits.

Much love,

Astrid

August Inspiration

Hello August!

Whilst those in the Northern Hemisphere are saying goodbye to summer, we’re welcoming spring (about a month early!) and with that I am already looking forward to summer. Whilst Augusts are still quite cold and usually welcomes the heaviest snows on the mountains, I feel spring in the air and know that summer it is just around the corner.

I’ve got a few simple DIY’s planned for this month including a canvas tote for travelling. It is ideal for everything that doesn’t fit into my regular handbag.

Beauty-wise I’d love to try and perfect my faves but thus far I’ve been unsuccessful. And don’t you just love this manicure?

I’ve also got a better idea of what I want to do above my bed, though I’d choose some more meaningful words.¬†Since I’m in an Italian mindset I also want to make my own pasta which I haven’t done in ages. It does take a while but makes the most delicious lasagna!

So whatever you’ve got planned for August, I hope it is a good one!
