1st Anniversary...

A year ago, I hit “publish” for my very first post named “About Me”. I felt both excited and afraid. Yes, bits of my personal life would be out there, but my mind was made up to create my little corner to let my creativity blossom, so I just went for it.

It has so far been a lovely experience and I have been pleasantly surprised by the people I have been meeting via my little corner. Their thoughts and words of encouragement really touch me.

I want to thank all of my readers (I am mostly followed by “non-bloggers”) for your visits and enthusiasm over this year for my blog - they warm my heart. Thank you so much!

Lastly, huge thanks to my sweetheart who is so patient about me writing a blog. 

Lots of love

About Me

Welcome everyone!

Since childhood one of the things I prefer is to read. It is a pleasure to discover the universe of various writers, each reading brings something different, nourishes me. I am not an expert in literature; I have no training in this field. I am the kind to fall in love at first sight with a book. I look at the cover; I leaf through the pages and read passages at random. If curiosity and magic operate, I take it home.
I like to share my reading with others; family, friends, and colleagues. So, I decided to create this space, to share the information. I will review my oldest and latest reads, so you can decide if you would like to read them too. It will be a kind of diary, a virtual album.

I enjoy both fiction and nonfiction. In fiction I like mysteries and romance. In nonfiction I love historical novels, biographies and memoirs, but I don’t limit myself to those categories; I’m very willing to read about other topics if the writing is engaging.

Furthermore, thanks to all my close friends who have appreciated my recipes as well as pieces of advice for many years, I gained confidence and realised that I could do more and turned this awareness into a hobby by having my own blog! Writing and photography - it's a lot of work, but still I love it. Learning and improving every day put a smile on my face!

I like:  dense rainforest and seaside. I love flowers and animals, I am passionate about music and books (but that you know already), pretty dresses, afternoon tea, boutique hotels, artisanal beer, ginger salted butter caramel, rum baba, baby odour, family life, pretty pictures, butterflies….

I like less: Text messages - I prefer to see people in order to talk to them, rudeness, jealousy, envy and bad language (feelings that I do not know and do not understand)….

My philosophy
Put everything you’ve got in whatever you do.

My favourite quote
Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.

My favourite fashion quote
"Style is very personal. It has nothing to do with fashion. Fashion is over quickly. Style is forever." - Ralph Lauren

Since I am not sponsored, I will be free to give you my personal and honest opinion and tell my experience in the first person, because the main purpose of these posts is to share information and tips on "things" we ladies enjoy!

If you want to be part of this group, ask my advice, share an idea, please send me a message - I will be happy to answer you as soon as possible.

Thanks for visiting!
With love from Switzerland
