The A – Z of Dance! Happy Good Friday!

curlyfurlyPicture Credit

Easter! Extra long weekend! Yeah! {Imagine me performing a little dance} I am now in Berlin with my family and old friends. Hopefully, I will also find some time to relax a bit since the last weeks were crazy and the following will be even crazier (did I mention my plan to first join a conference in Osnabrück that will take place until 5 pm one day and the next day I have an appointment in Vienna at 9 am and two days later I have to be on the station in Osnabrück again to take a train at 6 am?? If I will make it to all these appointments in time, you’re allowed to call me superwoman :)). The video project for i-D and Diesel by director Jacob Sutton captures the world’s hottest dancers, performing the alphabet. Sounds crazy? It is! Wonderful crazy & worth watching!

Happy Good Friday & I wish you a wonderful (not too crazy) easter weekend!

P.S. More cute bunnies

I love eggs. Eggs in pancakes, eggs with mustard sauce or just eggs. There are still so many recipes with eggs I wanna try out. Easter time is perfect for egg dishes. I love eggs!

Outside the trees are in full bloom. Everything is becoming greener and greener and my mood is continuously rising. A shade of green inside my flat and in my wardrobe has certainly the same effect :) !

Singer-Songwriter Love: Jake Bugg!

Singer-songwriters have my full respect: Like an author who is telling a story through his or her novel, they are creating atmospheres with their voices that are touching souls. It’s an art that British singer-songwriter Jake Bugg really rules in. His voice has this certain twist and his songs evoke immediately an understanding for their intentions .

Have fun while listening!

Bookish Quotes!

It’s no secret that I’m a bookish person. In my opinion, books have the potential to save your mental health. There are times where I go into a bookshop or a library just to inhale the atmosphere and to calm down. I know no better preoccupation than to lay on the sofa with a cup of tea and a good book. Those three following quotes express exactly what I feel…

I wish you a week filled with many good stories!

Up In The Air: Aerial Abstracts by Zack Seckler!

When I look at the fantastic aerial wildlife photos that Brooklyn-based artist Zack Seckler made from Botswana, I would really like to pack up my things and go on a trip to Africa. These colors, these animals and these wiiide spaces! Oh, Africa you are still on my to-do list!

I wish you a weekend with fantastic new perspectives!

Beet & Pasta Casserole!

CasserolePic by Franzi.

When I come home in the evening, I am often extremely hungry and slightly exhausted. So, I need something hearty, simple and comforting to eat. A casserole is perfect since one can invent innumerous variations and while it is in the oven there is enough time to come down from the day and already smelling the scent of dinner time. The beet & pasta casserole is my newest dinner idea. The slightly pink noodles may look a bit strange (I had to think on ham while doing the photos above), but the beet makes it a fresh and delicious dish that I will treat myself with more often in the future.

Recipe: Serves 2-3

Ingredients: 250 g pasta, 1 vacuum package cooked beets (3-4 beets, cut into pieces), 2 diced onions, app. 125 g grated cheese, 2 eggs , 200 g curd cheese, nut meg, salt, pepper

Preparation: Cook the pasta. Meanwhile mix the eggs, the curd cheese and app. 100 g of the grated cheese. Season mixture with salt, pepper and nut meg. Drain the pasta, add onions, beets  and the egg-cheese-mixture. Put everything into a casserole dish. Top with the rest of the grated cheese. Bake for app. 20 minutes at 200 °C.

Enjoy!

Shadily Shades!

I don’t know if there is also an English saying for it, but here in Germany we say “April, April – der macht, was er will.” The translation would be “April, april – does what he wants to do, anyway.” (I hate translations). …Meaning that you can never really forecast the weather in this month, because sun and rain are interchanging so quickly. For this case it’s never a wrong idea to have a nice pair of shades in your pocket (and an umbrella, of course). Here are some beautiful examples I am lusting about.

Have a nice – sunny! – day!

The War On Drugs!

The War On Drugs & their just released album Lost In The Dream are my musical discovery of this spring. They play a psychedelic indie rock-pop sound that really takes me with it. The beat, the voice, the guitar … perfection for my ears!

Have fun while listening!
