A relaxing Saturday in La Rochelle

During what was supposed to be my Easter holidays (but in reality was my revision break before my exams) I went away for the weekend in La Rochelle and L’Île de Ré (Isle of Rhé). So I thought I’d share some pictures I took with you ! Here are the ones I took in La Rochelle, and I will do another article for L’Île de Ré

Making homemade vegan falafels

After a few days away for the holidays (more on that in a later post), I have decided to share with you my recipe to make falafels ! I love falafels : they are so easy to make, and so delicious.

You can buy them (usually they are in the “bio” or “organic” section of supermarkets) but I find them quite expensive for not many falafels. In addition, there often are many additives and preservatives added in those. So as I love cooking everything from scratch, I thought it would be fun to try to make them myself, and I was delighted with the result.

The strong point of my recipe is that you do not even need any expensive cooking utensils ! Your handstand a fork will be enough.

Learn to embrace the unexpected : my first 10K !

Sometimes, you start your day as usual, but something can turn it around – whether it is in a good or bad way. This morning, I woke up, drank my lemon infused water, trying to motivate myself to workout. But I was not feeling like doing strength training at home like I usually do. And the sky felt like it was going to be raining soon – despite the fact that my iPhone said it would not rain before noon. But it’s (often) wrong.

A very literary weekend

12986769_10209926130696347_182966860_o.jpgLast weekend, I had almost no work to do (I am now in holidays ! Or should I say “revision week”…) so I decided it was time to finally finish Gretchen Rubin’s book, “Happier at Home“, that I had started a few weeks ago. Even though it was interesting, not that long nor hard to read, I had trouble finishing it because of the last papers to hand in before the holidays. They had indeed kept me very busy.

“Fake it until you feel it”

IMG_6736.jpgThe title of this article probably sounds like I am encouraging you to be a fraud, or dishonest. But that is not what I want to talk about at all. So just keep reading a little bit, I promise it will be worth your while !

It’s one of those days

We usually all have one of those days. You know what I’m talking about. You wake up sluggish and get out of bed after having snoozed your alarm for the hundredth time. You spill your coffee on the table – or on your bare feet. You feel groggy, not alert…In fact, you do not feel like doing anything except forget about everything that’s on your to-do list, and binge watch Netflix while eating everything unhealthy you possibly own.
