Summer nights are the best time of the day in places like Madrid. It’s cool enough to get out on the streets and compared to the north of Europe people really go out. It’s like comparing a desert to a jungle…

Madrid @ Night #11

madrid night city bikes

Madrid tries to turn into a biking city. With the city bikes to rent it has become easier to have a bike but the prices are quite high. They are running with an extra engine in the back to get up the hills easier, though. It’s still much cheaper to take the metro.

French Garden Roses

No posts lately as I have been out gardening a lot. With all that inspiration I got from Monty Don’s travel videos I grabbed my idea of a French garden and now it starts taking shape. There will be a pottage (in mini version), a sitting area with roses and a herb garden are already visible…

Daily Luxury #1

Daily Luxury

If there is one thing I wouldn’t give up in my every day life is the sense for luxury. The urge is probably a better workd but I rather keep my sense to find luxury. Luxury for me is the ability to enjoy certain things without the pressure of time. To create a space and life where there are no limits to your own happiness. The true luxury is timeless and without borders. You could even say it is beyond dimensions. But instead of going into the relativistic theory of luxury let me tell you about my daily luxuries…

How to get up and get dressed Summer Hot #4

monday dressing summer inspiration

I once saw an article on a plane magazine about a couple that dedicated their life to the love for cashmere. I understand but for me in summer it’s rather linen…I just don’t understand why it doesn’t get more attention. Does anybody enjoy wearing polyester? Well today I show you my Saturday shopping outfit. It’s hot but I am wearing a jacket. The trick here is that it’s white (white reflects the sun light) and linen which keeps the heat away and let’s your skin breath. Smart right? It also give this bit of sophistication Saturday mornings at the local supermarket so often lack, right? Well here where I live now, people travel from far to go to Primark, it is really refreshing (and rebellious) to look more, well snobbish-smart but easy-cool.
