Happy 2018!

On this first day of 2018, I wish you a Very Happy New Year full of Peace, Love and Joy!
I wish you all the best!  Looking more for the inside instead of just thinking of the outside.
What are our priorities? What are we expecting from life? Can we make our dreams come true? And what about the others dreams, could we help somehow ...

I have been in Tromso, in Norway,this month of December, for holidays. It is an amazing place, a dream come true in the middle of the magical snow.


It was absolutely wonderful. It was snowing on the first day. We visited Polaria, which is a very interesting Arctic museum. They showed us a movie about Northern Lights that was very well done and observed the seal feeding. We also visited the Polar museum about the History of the region and also about the ecological view of North Pole.

Next day we went to the Arctic cathedral and went to the cable car and went to the top of the mountain. It was a moment of peace and beauty that was unique.

In the evening, we were playing domino and received an alert. Northern Lights ! Dancing in the sky during a few minutes. I couldn't believe in such a moment of luckiness. They were green and purple!  But they disappeared ... Husky excursion and Northern lights again, but less visible on the next day, but puppies were awesome and also the tomato fish soup . They gave us also an unbelievable chocolate cake.

Arctic cruise on the next morning on the fjords was a really  surprising trip. We went on a boat that was an ancient ambulance in 1978.   Our hosts were Maria and the Captain and they were very nice. Maria made a fish soup for us.
I was a little frightened when we came back because there was a storm. And the Captain told us that he didn't cross  such a storm almost 30 years ago... Waves passed above us and the boat started to break in pieces. Happily we arrived well on the harbour.

I loved Tromso and hardly suggest this town for holidays.

La la Land

This movie which was nominated for the oscars is a true surprise! Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling were fantastic.
This movie is excelĺent! I was conquered by the marvellous musical of the moment. It has an inspiring soundtrack, very good actors, a love story that you have to see.
The last scene is so nice- how it could be and how it is and that last look between them has a significance that synthetizes all the meaning of the argument.

Fishers beach

This is one of my favourite beaches in one really known surf  spot in Ericeira, Portugal.  It is so handsome and peaceful. Even in winter it has a turquoise water under a marvellous sun. Ok it is true that the water is cold but for our eyes it is even better because it is so calm without a lot of people inside...

A new pillow at my living room

Last weekend I went to Ikea and I bought two of these very nice pillows with animals and flowers with a lot of colours. They add so much life to my living room. It helps to create an atmosphere of comfort. I think we have to put both time and and energy into creating an uplifting home...

Hello everyone! Sun is so important for me! Life under the light of sun is the happiest that I know. Going for a walk on the beach, having lunch on the terrace and feeling the warmthness of the light in our faces and our bodies. During winter this is really awesome; it is an excellent feeling. Do you know when this photo was taken? During the month of january. Where? Comment on my blog and subscribe!

Hey let's colour nice books as this one!

These days everyone talks about colouring as an anti-stress activity . It is true that in our daily life it is really difficult to find some time for relaxing, but it is really important to stop and reset. Colouring is a very special hobby and it reminds me of my childhood. This book is full of beautiful images concerning original designs from Cath Kidston- boat, strawberry, button rose, teatime,patchwork antique rose bouquet, candy flowers, squirrels, chelsea flowers, kitchen scene, little birds among others.

Park and National Palace of Pena


There is a place which is so mysterious and enchanted! It is the Palace of Pena in Sintra, Portugal and it deserves a visit when you go for a holiday in Portugal! Located in the Sintra hills, the Park and Palace of Pena are the fruit of King Ferdinand II’s creative genius and the greatest expression of 19th-century romanticism in Portugal, denoting clear influences from the Manueline and Moorish styles of architecture. The palace was built in a forest with luxuriant gardens. It is so mystical , it has a unique architecture and décor.

Best hand therapy ever

Hello everyone! I am totally in love with this
Crabtree and Evelyn hand goatmilk cream! It is very soft , its marvellous perfume stays in your skin for hours and it is the most hydrating hand cream that I know so far. I hardly recommend it to you!

An Experiment on a Bird in the Air Pump

This painting from Joseph Wright of Derby , in 1768 impressed me a lot. It is exposed in National Gallery of London.It has a combination of light and human drama that is unusual.
A scientist shows the formation of a vacuum by withdrawing air from a flask containing a white cockatoo. Air pumps were developed in the 17th century.
The bird will die if the demonstrator continues to deprive it of oxygen, and Wright leaves us in doubt as to whether or not the cockatoo will die. The painting reveals a wide range of individual reactions, from the frightened children, through the reflective philosopher, the excited interest of the youth on the left, to the indifferent young lovers concerned only with each other.

The best creamy tiramisu ever!!! And I used stevia!

Today I will share with you my recipe of tiramisu. It is so tasty and creamy! I did it today and this is one photo of it. You can use stevia ( I put 50/50% of sugar and stevia) to be healthier.Put less quantity of stevia than sugar because stevia is sweeter than sugar...
Enjoy it!
4 cups of coffee
4 tablespoons of whisky
3 tablespoon sugar+stevia or 5 tablespoons of sugar
5  eggs
250 g ricotta cheese
250 g mascarpone cheese
chocolate/cocoa powder for dusting
40 to 45 ladyfinger biscuits

- Separate the yolks.
- Beat the egg yolks with the sugar until the mixture is whitish.
- Add mascarpone and ricotta cheese and mix well.
- Whip egg whites and slowly add to the previous preparation.
- Mix the cold coffee and the whisky in a cup and soak the ladyfingers.
- Put half the ladyfingers in the bottom of a bowl (of the type used for gratin), cover them with half of the preparation made with eggs, put the rest of the biscuits and cover with everything left over from the preparation.
- Let stand in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours (ideally let stand 12 hours).
- Before serving, sprinkle with chocolate powder.

This book is awesome!

Hygge The danish art of happiness by Marie Tourell Søderberg
I just loved this book! This Danish actress wrote a guide to cooking, decorating, entertaining and being inspired the hygge way. A marvellous cover , fantastic photos and excelente ideas to turn your house as comfortable as a hygge place can be. It talks for example  about lighting and its importance in the northern hemisphere, how to make thick pancakes  so good for an afternoon tea and also make a suggestion of a playlist recommended for a hyggelig time.
You don't have to travel to the end of the world to experience quality time!

Parks of London are so interesting! At St James Park  I saw squirrels and one fox and also a great variety of birds and ducks.
It is so nice that we can breathe some good air in the center of a huge city!
