Foggy Morning


Hey people, what a foggy day we are having today! I got so excited when I drew the curtains in the morning and saw the misty world out there! I dragged Tom out of the bed (quite literally!) and we went out for a morning walk in the park. We enjoyed walking through such an atmospheric park which looked totally different from how it usually looks. (I felt like being in a film. No joke!)






I am going to do some sewing for Christmas later on today which is one my favourite ways of spending a sunday afternoon! In the meantime here is some random stuff that made me happy this week. Hope it does it to you too!

I so want this ring. (I am not dropping Tom a hint for a Christmas present. No way.)

Back to the future! Just have a look, it's amazing!

Beautiful Paris. (sigh..)

One day I'd like to live in a house like this (with the dreamy white floor!)  

How cute is this!

Watch out for the Japanese cat! Meow.

I'd throw a party just to get to wear this!


Have a great week everyone!  G x

Before and After: Bathroom!



Hey friends, Genki? Hope you've had a lovely autumny weekend! I was feeling a bit stressed having been busy at work this week but I felt so much better and refreshed walking in the sunny park this afternoon. The trees beautifully changing colours, the crisp autumn air, kids laughing and running around and the sensation of stepping on the dry leaves on the grass. I love autumn! (What's your favourite season?)

When we first moved into our flat, there were two things that came into our minds. "Doing up the kitchen and bathroom." They are not too bad but a bit outdated and not exactly pretty. After talking to our friends in search of a handyman who could do it cheap, and looking at hundreds of bathtubs and toilets and tiles on the internet, we got a new bathroom! Although we tried to lower the cost as much but it was still a lot of money for us (we will just have to live on soup and bread for a while!). It looks like our kitchen will stay the same for now but I am glad we got the bathroom done!

MUJI never disappoints me. Neat shampoo bottles! Love it.

(Maybe it's a fox. Or a rat? or some Chinese animal that I've never seen.)

I love our new black and white floor tiles! Whoo! 

Have a great week people!  G x

Morocco!

Hello people, did you go and see the firework displays last night? We stayed in (we both had a long week at work this week..) but enjoyed peeping out the windows for some beautiful fireworks in the neighbourhood. By the way, where did October go? Can you believe it's 7 weeks until Christmas! Hope everyone is having a great autumn before it gets really wintery!

Me and Tom went to Morocco a couple of weeks ago and I would like to share some of the pictures here! I'd never been to Morocco before and frankly didn't really know much about the country. As soon as we stepped out of the airport I was blown away! It was motorbikes, donkeys, colourful mosaic tiles, kids on bicycles, dryness, ladies in beautiful dresses and head scarves, rocky mountains and the sun burning on your skin. What an exotic and amazing country!


We were absolutely stunned by the beauty of the Sahara desert. Sitting on a sand dune looking at the sun set, my worries and problems suddenly seemed so small and pointless. Ahhh, I love being on holiday and discovering the world! (I still have a lot to see though!)

P.S. After feeling blessed and overwhelmed, we got lost in a sand storm in the middle of the desert. Yes, that's correct - we got lost. Click here for the full story written by Tom!
