For the first of the summer Bank Holidays, I was determined to get away from London. Turns out warm countries always sell out first, so it was going to be Copenhagen, where I found at £100 flight.

I don’t know much about Scandi countries — they all blend together in my mind as countries with very tall blonde people. We watched the first seasons of The Bridge and The Killing to get a crash course in Swedish and Danish cultural differences. One is that the Danes are known for their laid-back attitude.




11 Often Discarded Parts of Meat and Produce That You Can Eat


The last time I won anything was a telly, which my parents made me return it since we already had one in the house. A few weeks ago I entered a drawing at La Vie Eclectique and won these gorgeously posh chocolates from Recchiuti, a San Francisco chocolatier. This time around, I was keeping this prize to myself. A great thing about being an adult: you can eat chocolate for dinner if it’s what you fancy.

Check out Lisa’s blog, as she’ll be doing more chocolate giveaways! Miam!

Life happened and I got distracted (from this blog).

It was only a few months ago that I moved into my Paris apartment and now I’ve moved out of it to go back to L.A. for the next two months. Just in time too, as Paris was beginning to get a bit gray and soggy which was starting to make me feel down.

I flew into LAX last Sunday and headed to the Bay Area about a day after my jet lag subsided, which was all for naught. When you go camping in the late fall, you go to bed at 8 p.m. anyway.

A year went by since I left California so I have some catching up to do.

Be right back…

After three months of farming in France, I’m back in the city, meaning updates to come!
