Gastblogger für Clomes.ch

IMG_2956

Vor kurzem durfte ich einen Gastbloggereintrag für einen meiner neusten Lieblingsshops schreiben. Ich hatte clomes.ch per Zufall auf Instagram entdeckt und war von Anfang an begeistert von den geschmackvoll ausgewählten Produkten auf ihrem Online Shop. Die Webseite sieht einfach fantastisch aus und ich werde mir in Zukunft sicher noch ein paar tolle Stücke gönnen :) Hier könnt ihr meinen Eintrag lesen.

fleurs.

Photos from my Pinterest page

I tend to have fresh flowers in my house at all times. Even if it is just one or two wild flowers I picked up on a walk in the forest. I usually don't go for the classics like roses or lilies. I much prefer a messy mix of whatever I can find just as pictured above. Have a lovely start to your week!

Another London Walk

IMG_3061

One thing we definitely did enough of in London was walking. We hardly ever took the subway and didn't fear long distances, as a long walk was usually a welcome change from all the sitting and eating we did :) Here we walked through Hyde Park on a sunny afternoon.

Asparagus Season

_MG_2278

If you are running out of ideas about what to cook, a great tip is to buy seasonal vegetables and then use them in different variations. Asparagus are in season at the moment, and I wanted to give a new recipe a try:

What you need:

Asparagus
Oil
Salt
Pepper
Quinoa
Coconut Milk

Preheat the oven to 220°C
Put the asparagus on a baking tray and sprinkle them with olive oil.
Add some salt and pepper.
Bake in oven for 15 minutes.

For the Quinoa: 
Cook in pan with about double the amount of water. 
Cook until the quinoa is soft and the water has evaporated.
Add 1dl of coconut milk
Add a pinch of salt.
Cook again until coconut milk has evaporated. 

I never follow a strict time or amount of water when I make my quinoa, because I have noticed that they  are never quite done when I go according to directions.  
By making the Asparagus in the oven instead of boiling them in water, they stay a lot more flavorful and crunchy. Definitely a new favorite!

Neighborhood Stroll

IMG_3188

One thing I loved most about London were the pretty little houses everywhere. Being a tourist in such a large city can get very overwhelming. That's why we made sure to take lots of breaks in some quieter neighborhoods, where we would find a cute coffee shop and stroll around in the area. This was in West Kensington.

London Town

I just spent an amazing long weekend in London and it was wonderful! We were lucky with the weather, found the cutest neighborhoods and drank some of the best coffee. London, I will be back!




Hally's, one of our favorite cafés with delicious brunch dishes!






 Albion, a trendy cafe and store in Shoreditch.


 Labor and Wait, a store full of carefully selected gorgeous products in Shoreditch.






And finally, some of the goodies I bought :)
