Tranches de cake

Discovering new food spots is quite like a treasure hunt game. We never really know what we are about to find out, we wander around unknown neighborhoods. I absolutely love that, then when a follower asked me if I was in the mood for a bagel in Uccle I was immediately curious to know what kind of treasure it will be today.

Opération chaussettes 2014

Monday. Here you are again. Argf… Ok vending machine. You really want to play this? Keeping my money and my chips?! Which part of  « no » don’t you understand? Yes, we all know that kind of situation that just pisses you off. But a deep breath later (and maybe a piece of chocolate) we realize how ridiculous they are compare to unemployement, financial crises, not having those wonderful Louboutin shoes, health issues,poverty… we know that perfectly – we are just human. But it won’t be an excuse to forget the date of…

Chana // veggie snack (for real)

Do you have any magical words? (what the * is she now talking about) Wait a minute. When I’m a bit down, I got my magical words – those that make me smile again after some incantations… Alright, I’ll share them with you: ukulele and poppy. For some there is nothing like a good shopping session , for others a TV shows marathon . For me, it’s my magical words. And it never fails (try ! ukuléléukuléléukulélé ) .  Is this the  « L » effect or something , I do not…

Who wants a free entrance for Saveurs Toscanes 2014?

« Fairs » (salon in french, which can mean living room) have always intrigued me a bit. The travel fair, baby fair, study and job fair, … When I was a child, I absolutely did not understand why it was called « salons » when it was nothing like the good old living room I knew. Yes, naively, I expected an over king size version of the coffee table and couches (so what). And when I finally saw chairs and lounges, strictly speaking, at a food fair (not but what, really?) I hope you can imagine…

Billet d’humeur // Blog it yourself vs. bloguer n’est pas un métier

#BIY ou Blog It Yourself. Voici l’intitulé du workshop premier du nom organisé dimanche dernier (14 septembre 2014) par les talentueuses blogueuses de La Dinette des Grandes et de Le 13zor. Mais parce que c’est dimanche (matin) un café s’impose. Heureusement VroomVroomCoffee était dans la place. Le principe était clair, rassembler blogueurs en devenir et ceux déjà actifs autour de deux thèmes: quelle plate-forme choisir pour son blog et le community management. Soyons encore plus clair, ce n’est pas en une journée qu’on découvre les subtilités et merveilles d’une plate-forme…

La Piola | Life is too short to drink and eat badly

We go to La Piola We met reveller foodies We do eat italian (pasta most of all) For about  15 euros I have to confess something: I’v never been in Italy. How to explain this odd, this flaw, while Italian dishes are unavoidable must eat. Meanwhile (not too much) to fill the breach, it is Italy who comes to me – and I hope to you too. Your Italian is limited to ti amoAperol Spritz? Add now the word piola (wine bar – tavern). La Piola is a very nice…

Florence and the (coffee) machine Part II | Attendant

Oh London. The first time we met it was love at first sight. I was a teen and I knew it was the beginning of a true love story. The rhythm of The City is so charming that you can’t help it but just loose yourself. Time to be honest: are you the kind to bring your favorite magazine to « spend the time » while being in the loo? We all are! Our Londonian contributor « Sweet Florence »  is back with a new cool place to replace your magazine by a  caffeine…
