Let’s start by taking a smallish nap or 2 … Continue reading Hello Weekend !
It was on the screen some 3 years ago, yet I bet you still remember by heart the lyrics of Frozen .. Let it gooooo, let it goooo… How many zillions times did we scream it with our wanna be Princesses ? It took me an intensive Yoga Teacher training to finally understand the meaning of those words. Let.It.Go. also partially translatable in sanskrit by “Sthira Sukham Asanam“. … Continue reading Did you know Princess Elsa was a Yogi ?! (a Mum’s interpretation of “Sthira Sukham Asanam”)
We are traveling, hugging, kissing, eating, drinking, laughing,dancing,joking, exploring, discovering, sleeping, listening, admiring, contemplating, announcing, planning and sipping more champagne and espresso … Until we come back from our annual familial vacations in France and Switzerland, you won’t read much from me. In our “modern” world of instant gratifications and quick fixes, I have decided to play it like a rebel : I won’t update my blog before … Continue reading Unplugged in France and Switzerland
And so was this week! At this time of year, there is hardly any tourist on Bantayan island, let me know when you come and we’ll pick you up at the pier. You won’t find any clubs or bars on our side of the island but the Buko juices and the San Miguel are the most refreshing… Continue reading WPC : Today was a good day

Did you know that 24% of smartphone users check their phone while driving? 48% use … Continue reading Confessions of a Nomophobic on her way to rehab

I bet our “pause déjeuner “(lunch break) is far longer than yours. Don’t be surprised to read this on shops’ doors, even the busiest and most touristic streets of town. Parisian usually go for lunch by 1ish and forget the time.. to be back around 3. We take lunch pretty seriously and usually pretend we have a business one. Yes, a couple of hours of lunch break, … Continue reading The French word of the day: “Pause déjeuner”
I decided to postpone my job search for a little while. I still have a To Do List though and I make sure I always do something every day – preferably something I am great at: Sending you all the warmest rays of sunshine all the way from Bantayan! Have a Grande Week 🙂 Continue reading Carpe Diem !
Monday is the day to start fresh, right? I could have started the week with one of those aggressive 6-sweating-packs post shouting “Today is The day to start fresh! eat right!train hard and live healthy!” But sometimes all you need is a bit of coziness, time to let all your ideas take shape at their own speed, forget about working on the damn resume. Just take it easy. … Continue reading Cheers to a Single-Tasking kind of day!
I really don’t understand why my Attilas are so upset when I send them to time out. I tried it, and honestly, I loved every second of it! Continue reading Parenting: I love Time Out
