Worth a visit: JUSU Brothers

Oh how I love finding those places that slowly make a city feel like home. 

It's something like a park close by where you always go for a picnic or an alley that makes you smile every time you walk past it. Or maybe it's a cafe in your favorite neighborhood where you want to go time after time. 

The latest find is this lovely juice bar/eatery in Notting Hill. Definitely worth a visit (or two..) !

JUSU Brothers
147-149 Westbourne Grove

Hello hello ! 

A little radio silence occurred as it took a little longer to get a wifi as I had hoped. But now we're back in business and while I've been gone, summer has arrived. That means getting my favorite skirts and summer dresses out of the closet !

Currently loving this laid back combo of an oversized Levi's jacket and the prettiest summer dress I own.

Right now I'm finding blazers to be the new wardrobe stable of mine.
When the weather is not quite warm enough for wearing summer clothing but not cold enough for proper coats, blazer is the answer. And like most pieces of clothing, I like mine a little oversized. 

And to not be all black and white, I combined these brown block heeled beauties to the outfit - just to make it a little more interesting. Spring uniform at it's best.

New in - these furry friends from Zara, to make all my basic outfits look a little more interesting.
And a big hooray to sandal weather actually being here, it means summer is just around the corner and I'm really, really excited about that !

An ode to ordinary things.

When you have to stress about finding a place to live in, storing your luggage for an unknown amount of time, finding people to call your own from the never ending group of strangers and adjusting to new routines and new surroundings you appreciate the ordinary things. The things you don't even notice when you have them, because you are so used to them. 

Currently I'm thankful for my favorite coffee cups and for my roommate who shares my passion for breakfast and understands the importance of things like good toilet paper or a proper dish brush. I'm thankful for my friends who send me long voice messages and talk with me on the phone even though I'm a few time zones and many many kilometers away. I'm thankful for my new comfy blanket, which was on sale exactly when I needed to buy one. 

And so many other things, I guess one just has to focus on the good.
