Spring Inspo

There is nothing greater than waking up to the birds singing their songs outside the window – and likewise; sitting on the balcony in the evening and listening to them sing their songs. It’s that in combination with the sun coming out more days a week than it rains that makes me smile more and more every single day. It’s the little things you finally appreciate again when the grey and cold winter is slowly stepping aside. With it, I always get into the mood of buying more flowers – plants in general – and want to bring some color highlights back into my life and interior. I don’t know what it is with winter and having everything mono-tone, but I am really a seasons person. Now that spring is finally, finally slowly approaching us here in Zurich, I cannot wait to re-decorate my home a little bit. I’ve already been buying flowers on a weekly basis the past couple of months (and got some as presents other times) as you may have noticed on my Snapchat or Instagram. It really brings so much life into a room and brightens up the mood just a bit more. Seeping through Pinterest really made me crave spring and decorating everything at home just that much more. Here are some of the pictures that I find inspiring – clean, a bit colourful, and: fresh! I’ve also been looking at some more inspiration for easter and cute little decorations. I already love the egg & flower combination in the first picture so I am thinking of doing something along the lines of that. Perhaps I’ll share some easter inspiration with you guys soon. Also, my cravings for cakes, little cupcakes and brunches just sky-rocketed when I saw some of these cute easter-recipes. I will surely try out some of these and amend as needed for me to allergy-friendly enjoy those too!

Säntis 3.0: Exploring the mountains

1 Permalink

It’s Friday – whoot! I am currently still in Geneva and enjoying every moment of it – I will tell you all about it when I am back! I found some more photos from my trip to the Säntis moutain I had told you about a few posts ago. I still cannot get over the beauty of nature when looking at these photos and I really want to go back up to the mountains again. Let’s see what is planned for this weekend!

To my surprise we saw quite a few birds up there! They glide so beautifully through the thin air it almost seemed as if they were in slow-motion. Yet, when they got close to the edge of the view-platform, they would fall down in a steep, steep angle, were it almost looked as if they had suddenly gotten a heart attack! It did scare me the first time actually, as one of these birds came right by me – not even a meter away! We figured that they would do their special jump dives everytime a visitor came outside onto the platform, probably in the hope they would receive some food. There is a restaurant up there so it makes sense that they think they would get something. What I did not understand however, was why they were up there, 2000(+)m above sea level, in an arctic freezing enviorment, when they could be further down at every other restaurant or house near-by. Yes- too much talking about birds now!

I can’t wait to tell you all about Geneva and hopefully I’ll remember to take a photo or two whilst I am here. Enjoy the rest of your Friday! xo
