Hello! How are you doing? How is your week? I feel like the luckiest person alive, not only am I having a lazy day off with someone (wink wink) making me an omelette for breakfast but I also get to spend a weekend with my closest friends on our 10 year jubilee!
In the back of my car is wine, chocolate and a freshly baked almond-lemon cake and I honestly can’t wait to see them all and curl up for an autumny weekend.
In case you feel like reading, here are some of the links that made me smile this week. 

I love to read wise career advice from people that have seen it all. Throughout my working years, I always seem lucky enough to find mentors. The best advice I got this year is to follow the rules of the 20-miles march

And considering keeping a steady pace, I am starting to realise how important it is to take it slow(er) from time to time. Along those lines you can read Ina Gartner’s date night tips.

Food52 is always one of my favorite sources for kitchen wisdom, and some of their recent articles have been really good reads, such as this one on lessons to learn from Marcella Hazan, this article on Hot-water Pie Crust and on how to make an easy-going Chocolate Bark (hoping to make one with pieces of candied mint on top of .

The recipes that caught my eye this week are this Chipotle Mayonnaise, this Quince Tarte Tatin, these Coconut Macaroons and these Vanilla Sables. Looking forward to try some out. 🙂

Something that makes me incredibly happy is looking at beautiful things. These installations are mesmerizing, as well as these pieces of street art.
And of course, cake! How beautiful is this one? I am making a wedding cake for friends in Spring next year, and this one is definitely on the list for inspiration.

Have a wonderful weekend!
