i have assumed several healthy habits in the past months. without delving too deep into details, i will reveal one  – and the most superficial – of them.


i have started buying flowers. just because they are beautiful. just for the enjoyment of me, myself and moi.

sure, it is not a spectacular habit by any means. it goes without saying that the other ones are not all that extravagant, either, but that's kinda beside the point.

peonies. vase from habitat.

they make me happy. in an unassuming way, a few fresh blossoms provide a fragile enhancement to the everyday environment where routines and chores dull your mind.

forget me not. i have not forgotten you.

luckily i also found some forget-me-nots at the cottage. my favorites.

i’m in the milky way.

well, i'm not too keen on suggesting summer hits – my psychic predictions are known to stray away by miles. but i think this song by swedish electropop duo icona pop might keep me bouncing a little come warm weather.

simply. i love it.

disruptive pattern material.

the approaching summer has brought the joys of night walks and bike rides through the city. i've strolled and rolled the streets, breathing in the smells and feeling the wind caress my bones with sometimes a stronger chill factor than june would imply.

i've got my hair wet and fallen short when trying to make it pedaling up the hill.

i've walked with a smile on my face with solid – and not-so-solid – ankles.

and i have worn a trusted set of boring old clothes and haphazardly realized my hair has grown. i have also sported an increasing amount of camouflage – i guess a need to blend into my surroundings and disrupt my edges feels more appropriate and sheltering than before.

good old – and i mean from 2004 – vans slip ons in a limited edition stitched camo and natural rubber.
