corinne bailey rae - live!

So Corinne Bailey Rae dropped by our tiny island for her debut concert on 28 Jul. You'd have to have a heart of stone not to feel the fragility of life and heartbreak in her voice and lyrics. The woman is absolutely breathtaking.
I would've enjoyed myself a lot more if not for the crazy drunks behind me who had to make a complete nuisance of themselves.

pates de fruits

The fruit jellies from Hediard are countryside summer dreaming.

The flavours? Apricot, peach, strawberry, pear, pineapple, blackcurrent, mango, cherry, lemon, date, raspberry, fig, quince, passionfruit, guava, kiwi, tangerine, redcurrent, orange, waterfruit, banana, green apple, plum and prune. Just to name a few.

In other words, it's impossible to eat responsibly.

You've been forewarned.

colour block

I couldn't resist snapping a shot of this - bold, solid colours found along a backalley practically screaming Pop Art.
Our streets need more colours!

a deep, dark and secret obssession with vintage suitcases

As soon as I laid eyes on this gorgeous monochromatic suitcase, it was love at first sight.

All old school chic and so terribly romantic, I just can't wait to bring it on my next roadtrip. Dreaming, dreaming......

what's life without whimsy

there will be a bird bath in my garden,
with finches and whistlers fluttering around in it.

buffet lines are not part of my gastronomic chronicles

I'm not a fan of all-you-can-eat mediocre handouts, it's a waste of life in my humble opinion. 
But I must confess, the dessert line-up never fails to get me a wee bit excited.

something i thought i'd never do

So I've decided to start a blog.

Seems easier than starting a cult.
