Summer mood

It’s officially British Summer Time today! For someone who live far far away from their family, it’s quite important for me as I have one hour less time difference. For people in UK will agree with me if it means more sun! As the spring begin and summer follows, it’s time for the ultimate beautiful blooms, colour bursts, shorts and bare legs. So get ready for Summery feeling!

Easy Appetizer: Balsamic Bruschetta

My kitchen has been refurbished! Yipeee! I can’t wait to spend time for home cook at the weekend. When trying to find a new recipe, I found a nice website with great recipe collections and impressive interfaces, www.yummly.com. The pictures are great- very mouthwatering food images and well presented in nice design. My opinion, this is the best food website that I’ve found so far! So, if you are foodies who seeking for a new recipe or need a quick dishes or even prepare for a family dinner tonight, this website is a nice destination!

The little thing that create a big smile

For our 21 months anniversary, I would like to give the little presents to my love. Normally we don’t celebrate monthly anniversary but this time simply because I love the number. Moreover, to give something to someone special doesn’t have to be for only special occasions, does it?

Say it…

We both know our feeling but it is no harm to say it loud or say it with beautiful parisian chic typo.
