Interiors: Bohemian Parisian Studio

I want this flat. I want to live in it in Paris.

Project Fairytale


If you were curious enough to read the About Me section of this blog, you might have noticed a small mention of Russian being among the languages I speak or pretend to understand a little, the latter being the case here. I love to read anything in cyrillic, even if I only understand less than half, but I belive the exercise is welcomed anytime. So, when I discovered The website, that features some very beautiful interiors, especially from Moscow, Sankt Petersburg or Kiev, I couldn’t stop perusing every room on the site. And then I fell in love: A Parisian studio with candles instead of wiring and antique furniture. It appeals to my bohemian side that miraculously awakens during summer and allows me to enjoy a stylishly cluttered room 🙂


Doesn’t all of this this look like the decor of a play?

15 Reasons Why People Move To New York City

Thought Catalog

1. We’re masochists. We doll ourselves up every night for a city that’s just going to end up giving us a black eye anyway. It’s our glamorous version of a bad boyfriend.

2. We weren’t content living our life somewhere else. We saw what it would’ve been like if we stayed put and we got scared, real scared. (If you grew up in NYC, you probably still live here because the city has made you unfit for anywhere else. It’s as if New York peed all over you when you were born and marked its territory. The little bitch!)

3. We heard that New York is the one place you don’t ever have to grow up. 80-year-olds walk the street at 2 a.m. looking for a coffee shop, parents still go out and maintain some semblance of a life. The people who live here operate on the…

Stop Letting Your Fears Control You

Mike Iamele

I’ve got something honest to say today: I’m afraid.

I’m totally afraid. That my business isn’t growing fast enough. That I’m not making the right connections. That I’m not writing enough articles. That I’m a fraud.

At least once a week, somebody calls or e-mails me to ask me for advice on how I grew my practice so quickly. Because my SEO is great, and I get paid to speak, and I have an amazing office with interesting clients, and I shell out advice every weekday on here.

But, inside, all I can think is, “My practice isn’t full, and I’m terrified no one will come to my next talk, and I’m scared what people will think, and I’m a total fraud.”

I’m so scared that I’m not living up to some idea that people have of what it means to be successful. So how can…

All that is wrong with the world...

For the last six years I have been traveling a lot, being in a different place every few months. Early on when I started my travels I was made aware of GlobalFreeloaders, and at a later stage CouchSurfing and Hospitality Club. The concept behind these sites has is referred to as hospitality exchange. The general idea behind hospitality exchange sites or communities is that when you visit a country, you find a host you think you will get on with and stay with them, instead of at a hotel or hostel, the advantage being that you get to save some cash while getting a more accurate taste…

Udon Noodles!

Tofu, Miso, Udon Noodle Soup (for one)

Udon Noodles are chewy, soft and silky-textured and tied with soba are my favourite noodles to use. You can find them in their dried form and boil them like pasta, and the pre-cooked type which can go straight into your wok or soup pot.

Either way, they’re a fabulous option for a whole variety of dishes, from piping hot noodles in broth to satisfyingly rich stir fries, and succulent salads. Tofu, Miso, Udon Noodle Soup (for one)

This hearty bowl of slurpy noodles was inspired by Wagamama, a Japanese restaurant and noodle bar, and one of the few restaurant chains over here that I really love.  I went a few weeks ago and had a delicious vegetable udon stir-fry but was very tempted by all the warming soups on the menu.

This recipe for Tofu, Miso, Udon Noodle Soup takes just minutes to put together and is great for cold-weather lunch option when salads…
