journaloctobre {3}


jumping in puddles, boots, rain, leaves, coffee at the park, pom-pom hat, eating liquorice, pumpkins, walks, smell of new books, hazelnuts on the pavements, dream shop, flickr socks, making brioche.

it was such a sweet time. full of alarms and surprises. sometimes bad, mostly good. with a special thought for that little squash pretending it’s an acorn. sometimes, I also want to pretend I’m an acorn.
how was your month?

happy november.

journaldébut {9}


the one question: are you going to miss him or what you two had more? as much as I didn’t want it to be this way, the answer I gave from the blue became more and more of a statement as time went by.

and for the first time, I have the opportunity to make it right and the time to take care of myself.

here is my plan to a healthy, happy me.

one. focus on the people I love and stick to them. it’s just too easy not to close. and too sad as well.

two. run to work. or at least try to. I’ve found a nice eight-week program to achieve a five kilometres jog (such a coincidence that the actual distance between flat and work matches).

three. stop being the person other people want me to be. in the end, I will just feel overwhelmed.

journalhot and cold {5}



a list of things that make me happy, as off right now.

1. being nicknamed bibi by my mum.
2. moving to London in – what feels like – a couple of hours.
3. finding out that my camera isn’t broken. the battery simply needed charging.
4. having a hot date with my boyfriend at Damart* (hence, hot as in opposed to cold).
5. loading new film into the much much loved instax mini.
6. getting my clothes/things ready and not knowing how I’m going to stuff all this into ONE suitcase.

* getting ready for London’s freezing temperatures.

what makes you happy today? I WANT TO KNOW. xx see you soonish after yet another mid-week weekend.
