The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of events and emotions. Saturday was my best friend Elisabeth’s last day in London, and although it was quite bittersweet, it was also in my top three of the best days of the summer. In other news, I’ve found the flat of my dream and will be moving on Saturday, and the weekend after I’m traveling to Copenhagen for the second time. Did I mention my life is crazy at the moment? But I’m enjoying every minute of it, especially now that the stress associated with the flat search is gone (phew!). Until I give you more updates about my new place, I thought I’d share with you some of my favourites of the moment…
Yoga at work
I’ve only recently decided to get back into yoga, mostly because there is a class offered once a week at work (how convenient), but also because I needed to get my body moving. When the weather is good, the class is taught on the rooftop terrace of the office, and last week I had the chance to see a beautiful sunset. It was such a bliss and I can honestly say the teacher is one of the best I’ve ever had! It’s something I am now happily integrating into my weekly routine.
One of the things on the schedule last Saturday was introducing Elisabeth to my London friends Franzi and Martine. We met up at this super cozy Scandi café in Soho and had a lovely afternoon. The cardamom buns there are just as good as the ones at Fabrique, and the atmosphere is calm and conductive to productivity. I am planning on going back on my own to work on my blog or to sit down and read a book.

Lena Dunham in Domino Magazine
Lena Dunham is in my opinion, the voice of our generation (yes, just like her character Hannah Horvath in Girls proclaimed in season 1), although I’m sure a lot of people would disagree with me. I think she has an incredible sense of criticism, a good grasp of the world we live in, and a very funny sense of humour. So once again, I fell in love with a piece about her in Domino magazine, where she talks about all things related to home (aaaannnnnddd did I mention she has an Ettore Sottsass Ultrafragola mirror?). You can read it here.
A life drawing class
For a few months now, I had been contemplating attending one of the artist Alexandria Coe’s life drawing classes, and it finally happened! It was the most challenging thing I’ve ever had to do, but also one of the most rewarding because it made me aware of the little things, as well as of the big picture of life. The way I felt after is impossible to describe but it was positive and I’m so happy I got out of my comfort zone by doing it.
