London’s Amanzi Tea

amanzi tea_1

You all know I love tea, but I recently realized that I never really talk about it here, even though it’s one of the main reasons why I started this blog. I guess it’s because I’m not good at describing flavor notes; I can just tell you if it is really tasty, just blah, or […]

Oreo Chocolate Cupcakes

I don’t know what’s going on with me. Maybe my tastebuds are changing. Maybe it’s the hotter weather. Maybe I’m turning Swiss.* But lately, I haven’t been enjoying super sweet desserts. I’m usually not one to discriminate against any dessert (ok maybe the coffee ones) but for some reason, really sweet things are losing their […]

For our few years abroad, creating a travel list was a must. The problem is, the more we travel, the longer the list gets. We cross one place off and hear about three more places to go. For a while, we had planned to save a portion of the list for three-day weekend trips. But […]

I have to say I have a pretty good memory, though it’s not always useful. I’m really good at remembering the date of people’s birthdays, but not necessarily good at wishing them a happy birthday on the actual day. I could also tell you the price of every item of clothing in my closet, but […]

I plan to buy a season pass to the badis (sectioned off swimming areas on the […]

Coconut Chia Seed Pudding

I’ve never been a huge yogurt eater, but sometimes I get an unexplainable craving for the creamy substance. Seeing as I’m laying off the dairy these days, when my yogurt craving kicked in, I didn’t know where to turn. Then I remembered chia seeds. I’d been hesitant to buy them considering the cheapest I’d found […]

Lately, we haven’t had any weekend trips planned, so we have been hanging around Zürich. As much as I love travelling, it’s been nice to enjoy weekends at home. I like using my closet versus a suitcase every once in a while. But travelling sure makes you appreciate the simple joys of being at home. […]

Marathon Monday

boston marathon - 06

This time last week, I have to say I was proud to be an American. The Boston Marathon was an incredible experience. It was amazing to be around so many people that came out to support their town, their runners, and stand up against last year’s tragedy. My brother, the runner of the Dunn fam, […]
