REMEMBERING SUMMER

New photos. Colombia. Paris. Barcelona

I miss my mami! It feels like ages since I was in Colombia. But really it has been two months. My god! And to think I don't even know when the next time I go will be... Oh let's not think about it right now then. Let's focus on the present.

My beautiful friend Ruth is back in the UK after her extraordinary four months of traveling all over South America and ending with a whole month in Mexico. She's going to visit us in Paris soon, and I cannot wait!

Now that I have to leave the house with a coat every day, I'm thinking about the summer... And when it was insanely hot in Paris in August, I was thinking about how good it would be for the temperature to drop. I need something in the middle :( I'm already too cold and it's only the middle of October. Dear god.

DÉGUSTATION DE PATISSERIES // 09

Liberté

La tarte citron – even though I ate this over a year ago, I still remember how good it was. The sablé biscuit was crumbly and buttery (as it should be) and the lemon cream was rich and tart. I've been experimenting making my own tarte au citron and I'd love to make it this beautiful for sure!

La tarte à la crème – good, decent tart. It was creamy, smooth and sweet. Not distinctive enough, maybe. I don't remember much about it in the end. However, as a whole, Liberté is a good place to check out. They have a lot of choices, and I'm sure something for everyone. 


review Caramel Val Duracinsky

Meert

Caramels – Decent caramels. The flavors weren't very pronounced though, so I don't think I'd be able to differentiate them with my eyes closed.

Aux merveilleux de Fred

merveilleux caramel/vanilla – two different ones. I think they even had coffee flavored merveilleux? They are to die for! Possibly my new favorite pastry shop. They have two sizes if you want to share or if you're really really hungry ;) A must on any pastry tour of Paris! Do it! And let me know what you think.

SUNDAY LINKS: HEALTH & FITNESS

Gym stuff Quest bar cookie Health stuff

Some links to articles, videos, pages, photos, etc that have to do with fitness & health. I've been working out a lot lately, focusing a lot of weight lifting. It's difficult, it burns, and I love it. I've been seeing steady improvement and that's super exciting! 

  • amazing transformation pictures! I know how incredibly hard it is to lose weight and get fit so these are super motivating. 
  • The second photo above is a microwaved Quest bar. I freaking love Quest bars and I desperately want the blueberry muffin ones but it's not easy getting them in Paris. I must go to the US...
  • I've started following these two ladies on YouTube: Marissa and Valentina. They are so committed and strong. I love it! Even though I'd probably never enter a bikini competition ha!
  • definitely want to try some of these healthier muffin recipes. I bought some chickpea flour recently and made some great zucchini apple muffins... more experimenting, and then I'll share!
  • the wonderful Laura Miller started a new series called Talking in Circles where she invites people to talk openly about mental health issues. I really liked it!
  • do you have tight hips like me? I always make sure to save these types of posts on Pinterest... now I should probably DO THEM! Oh how I need to. 
  • I've been wanting to try a coffee flavored protein shake for ages. This one looks kind of promising...
  • a belly, butt & thighs workout that doesn't include squats (if you hate those! haha)
  • Follow Misty Copeland on instagram. Iza Goulart also posts great little workout videos on hers. And if you're into Ballet you can follow this lady
  • Foodwise, here are some instagram super stars: Deliciously Ella, I quit Sugar, Nutrition Stripped, The Natural Nutritionist, Eating Bird Food, My New Roots
