Abandoned Winter Olympics Site: Sarajevo

Monday, February 24, 2014

There's something so poignant about these haunting photos of the abandoned winter olympics site in Sarajevo from 1984.  Sarajevo is such a special city to mark as he spent summers there in college, and later took me back to visit - the city and the people have such a beautiful heart..

And hello btw! Did you like my blog break last week? I got back from Berlin Sunday night and catapulted in to the week of no organization, lots of last minute plans and general laziness, ha!

Chia Seeds

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

Lately I've been learning about/discovering the benefits of Chia seeds, so I've been searching for recipes that use them. They are like this crazy super food that I never have known much about - but I'm just going to put them in everything, basically...I made the top left banana pudding this weekend and it was delicious

1. 3 Ingredient Banana Pudding
2. Chia Seed Breakfast Pudding
3. Roasted Chia Cauliflower
4. Chia Seed Peanut Butter Cookies (the least healthy option)

Chia seeds are great because they are packed with fiber, calcium, omega-3 fatty acids, Manganese, Phosphorus, protein for vegetarians and they are gluten-free. It's also said that they stabalize blood sugar, regulate appetite, improve sleep, improve blood pressure in diabetics, etc*. Its basically a super food that can only be beneficial to your diet (until a study comes out saying its not ;)

Weekend.

I'm not a fan of how fast weeks and weekends are going these days...feels worse than usual. Here are a few snaps from the weekend..

Stopped by Young Designers Market this weekend - had some pretty cool things

Wesley made some Valentine's cards. All by himself. (diy idea from a tiny rocket)

Is it bad that I love when Wesley has a fever because he likes to cuddle with me? I'm in heaven when this happens because he's so hard to get to stop moving!
Was it bad to send M a picture of this ring because it would be such a cool Valentine's Day gift? :) (this I found in the best vintage/antiquey/unique jewelry store ever, in Luzern)

a London Town Home

Thursday, February 6, 2014

I'm dying over..no, I'm dead...like and I'm being the least amount of dramatic that I can be over how much I want/love/need this remodeled London town home (that was previous untouched for 60 years) by film director Christine Chang Hanway (via (and see more pics at) Remodelista). Its my kind of perfection times infinity. My heart actually hurts.

Landing in Berlin

Tuesday, February 4, 2014


Thursday next week, I'll land in Berlin for a little long w/e with a couple of friends. I'm beyond excited - people tell me they know I will love this city, that its up my alley...I can't wait to find out. I can't wait to see the wall, tour the old underground bunkers, go to a concert, and eat at one of the many restaurants we've put in our list (hamburgers, paleo, pastrami, american brunch, schnitzel..etc!), and shop...of course. Do you have any recommendations?

Here are some pieces on my packing list, which, is basically all I've been wearing lately, so whatever.

Navy Blue Zara Sweater - I wear this way too much.
Grey Sweater - Mine is a huge oversized thing from HM
Dark jeans/Grey jeans
Asos Chelsea Boots - I just ordered these...love.
Vintage LV Satchel - Just like the one I purchased in Tokyo (at a much better price) 
Gold Timex Watch - I'm on my 2nd one. Its such a classic little watch, I adore it.
Random Bracelets
Earrings
Black beanie

Paree







































Isn't this so gorgeous? I'd do a snow angel right there!

Sunday Drive

It was a slow weekend, catching up with people, cooking, cleaning and a relaxing Sunday morning drive around the lake with a friend. The weather was grey, rainy, foggy - in other words, an enchanting way to see little villages on the lake with a backdrop of foggy obscure mountains. We stopped at a fancy (deserted) hotel in Fitznau for a coffee, it felt a little eery and old school, but beautiful and polished. Makes no sense I know.
Hope yours was great!
