Happy Sunday!

[photo via] Oh hello, how are you doing? Over the course of the last couple of weeks, I have been seriously playing hookie. This place is really where I go when I feel inspired. There has been a lot of work, travels and general chores, which in many ways takes up so much head space that there is little left for being creative.

Also for that reason, it really feels like the perfect time to unwind and take off on a wildcamping trip (!) to Iceland at the end of this month. I am keeping my fingers crossed that we will catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights. But even without that, I am just incredibly excited to go camping, wander around, play cards and to drink loads of coffee in the fresh air.

Below I am sharing some of the reads that made me happy this week. 🙂

Oh the shade! Obama’s old photographer sharing these warm photos made me giggle.

Until recently, I thought that enjoying / working in a wine harvest (and taking an actual holiday to do so) was on my bucket list. It might be scrapped. Having said that, this chicken with wine grapes looks delicious!

The older I get, the more I enjoy gift wrapping and gifting in general. Considering how beautiful these envelopes look, I am considering to get back into sending cards.

Also, are you reading the Food52 cookbook 2017 Piglet? I don’t have a favorite, but reading the reviews really is one of my favorite pastimes when distracted from work.

This trick to make almond milk without all the extra work is brilliant! I love almond milk, but often dislike the processed or chemical taste of the ones for sale in the supermarket.

And I am laughing so hard at the discussion whether to eat oranges in the shower or not. I am afraid I fall in the category that should do so (really how does one manage to not be a sticky drippy mess?).

This grapefruit chia mint refresher sounds amazing.

And peanut-butter jelly cups!

Reading this article in the Guardian on how to lead a happy long life: “Also, travel as much as you possibly can – see the world, live well, take care of yourself. But don’t take things too seriously – it’s important to have lots of fun along the way too.”

Have a wonderful Sunday!
