Katia Washi handbag semi-fail


The summer was really hot, and I spent substantially less time indoors on the couch knitting, and more time outside taking photographs or reading. What can I say, perhaps I am not a year-round knitter after all! Instead, in summer I like to crochet handbags. Inspired by how well it went with the handbag that I crocheted for last summer (read the post here!), which was even complimented at the Phildar store in France, I decided to try my luck with a…

The Havana Chronicles: Old Havana


Remember how I was supposed to write up my whole Cuba experience, like, in March? Well, it’s October and I am not even halfway through! I decided to finish my documenting of Havana in this blogpost, dedicated to the old part of the town, the one that always appears in postcards and films. Next month, I’ll tell you more about travelling the inland, but I’ll hope to be more brief that I’ve been until now! If I had to define the…

Looking up at the starry skies


If you have followed this blog since its inception, you will have been witness to my flirtation with the many faces of creativity. The truth is, that of all the things I do or try my luck at, there is one that I enjoy more and where I believe I have some potential, and that is photography. Could I say that I have found my passion? A while ago I got interested in night photography. Ok, I  should say I…

Living life with a lighter heart


Today, I wanted to write about summertime revelations I had during the break As you may know, I’ve been to France, Germany and Austria this summer, but the real break from work wasn’t until I went to visit my parents on my own for 10 days. 10 days where the only thing I did, beside meeting friends and roasting under the sun, was reading books. Silence and books. “That’s the life”, I thought to myself. I have had a lot of time in…

Paris, je t’aime

paris je taime

Can I tell you a secret? I have never been to Paris Paris, the city of love, the stuff of dreams. The place where so many great heart-warming (some, heart-melting) movies take place. Movies like Amélie, Paris Je T’aime, The Beat that my heart skipped, Before Sunset, Moulin Rouge (I was 16 and hormonal. BIG IMPACT)… but also some tough films like La Haine. So many stories about Paris, and here I was, still a Paris Virgin! That’s right, I had never been in…

My fully-packed weekend in London!


I spent the weekend in London with my friend Silvia, who had a conference there and asked me to tag along. I, of course, accepted! Although I was (and still am) in much need of a chilling holiday, I decided to jump right into it and do as many things as possible during the weekend, to live the fullest of experiences -and I succeeded! I realized I hadn’t been there since my 25th birthday, so it’s been nearly 5 years!…

Havana, Part II: Discovering Vedado


Vedado is a neighborhood west to Havana’s better-known districts of Old and Central Havana. If you are on a guided your, you will most likely end up there because it’s where you can find the famous Tropicana night club, together with the Hotel Nacional, one of Havana’s most prominent landmarks, or the FOCSA building (the tallest in Cuba!). But Vedado is actually much larger than that area, and extends a long way to the west. Walking through El Malecón (Havana’s famous promenade) from…
