Fashion: Pink flowy skirt

Posted on Updated on


I don’t like the H&M sales as it tends to be too crowded and messy in the stores. Just before the start of the sales though (at the end of June mind you… I didn’t go shopping now as I am on my 50-day-challenge !!), they do reduced prices on some articles. The only condition is that you’ve got to buy at least two reduced articles… no problem for me there ! So about a week before the actual sales start, I’m off to H&M to see if I can find some bargains.

During the summer sales, I always try and buy things that I can still wear on colder summer days and in the autumn. We don’t have an extremely long summer season, so I usually don’t buy that many really summery stuff. This time I bought a soft pink midi skirt. Read more about this outfit!

France: Normandy – part II : D-day

Posted on Updated on

American cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer.

Last week’s Normandy post was all about gardens and nature. But Normandy is so much more than that. To many, Normandy equals D-day… so when in Normandy, make sure to find some time to spend on Word War II sites !

Mind, you can easily fill a week going from one museum to another monument, from one cemetery to  another landing beach… As we didn’t have much time, I just picked three D-day-things to do : Arromanches, the German battery at Longues-sur-Mer and the American cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer.  Read more about our D-day trip in Normandy!

Today’s quote : be kind

Posted on Updated on

Shall we make a new rule of life from tonight : always to try to be a little kinder than is necessary – J.M. Barrie


A few months ago I was waiting at the doctor’s. There was a young mum with her 2 kids from about 2 and 5 years old. They were actually quite good, but of course being kids they didn’t sit still. The eldest was looking in a ‘Top Gear’ magazine, drooling over the fab cars. So the ooohs and aaahs coming out of his mouth were really excited. His mum was constantly at him : don’t touch this, be silent, don’t do that, leave this alone, be quiet,… Read more about this quote!
