Hey there y’all. Nice to see you! Life unfortunately got in the way of last week’s Sunday Selections. You know how it does that sometimes? Not cool. It’s nice to be back.
This weekend I’ve taken some much-needed time to recharge. I discovered a new cafe in Berlin that I’ve heard lots of good things about: Roamers. Oh my. After indulging in a morning filled with french toast with sticky pears, blueberries and mascarpone, lemon cheesecake and great coffee, I’m already planning my next visit. You see, I’ve been feeling a little thin lately, more than a little stretched. There was a sense of unbalance. But cake on a Saturday morning puts things back into perspective. Cake always helps you remember what’s really important.
Take it slow this Sunday. Sleep late. Eat croissants. And don’t get dressed unless you absolutely have to.
Here are this week’s favourite links:
WATCH: With struggle comes richness. One of the world’s leading adventure and expedition photographers, Cory Richards, pays tribute to the adventures that have put him outside his comfort zone with this moving and inspiring video, ‘A Tribute to Discomfort’.
READ: How affordable is the cost of living in your country? Find out! A friend alerted me to this interesting infographic earlier this week which compares the cost of living in every part of the world. Croatia and Portugal, you’re looking pretty appealing.
EAT: I sampled a pretty darn good cheesecake at Roamers yesterday, which has left me with a hankering for more. I would also like a slice of this blood orange ricotta cheesecake with red wine glazed figs please. Thank you.
MAKE: It’s always such a shame when your flowers begin to wilt, isn’t it? It happens all too quickly. This easy DIY will help prolong your enjoyment of your blooms.
BUY: This little piece is so pretty it would be a shame to call it underwear.
GO: Australia is calling! Yesterday I took the plunge and booked my (very expensive) tickets back home over Easter. You see, a few special people in my life are celebrating milestone birthdays over the next few months, so a visit back home to celebrate with them is in order. I’m hoping the weather gods are kind and let the Australian summer linger on a little longer, just for me.
Wishing you a balanced week. x
