Hi guys! I hope you are having a nice weekend. Today I would love to tell you about my last London walk.  I went for this amazing city walk last weekend with my friend, she is a photographer and loves industrial places. We decided to shoot some photos of the Battersea Power Station, a kind of Art deco building from the 30', which is the largest brick building in Europe and one of the monuments worth watching.
It is located at the border of the river Thames and is has remained largely unused due to its poor conditions. For our surprise, there were some development working plans and the access was not permitted,  so we finally changed the route:

  1. Start at the south entrance of one of the most interesting parks in London, The Battersea Park
  2. Walk to the cafe in front of the little lake
  3. Visit the Peace Pagoda
  4. Stroll by the side of the Thames, 
  5. Cross the river through the Battersea park bridge towards Sloan Square, Chelsea.
  6. Visit the Saatchi Gallery
  7. Have an afternoon cake a tea the Partridges

The walk spots around Battersea Park and Chelsea are listed on the map below:



Good morning everyone! I hope you are having a nice weekend. Mine has been pretty relaxed, since is super cold outside and I keep on doing indoor activities with my friends all the time. 
We have to move soon from my lovely dream-home; I already feel so nostalgic that anything is the perfect excuse for staying in. Packing in, packing out... and finally all those moments stored as a life experiences in my memories.  
I start feeling that me and my other half are like nomads, looking for changes, new adventures and the unknown . I can't tell you yet what is coming pretty soon, but is big! 

 -Ellen Johnson Sirleaf 

So, to not stress out, I keep having this internal speeches like: Come on Sarah, you can do it! Changes are fun! Get out of your comfort zone, awake your ideas, your twenties are rushing past, so get out NOW!

Anyway, don't you agree that at the end of the day, home is were the cooking happens?

This is the story of my kale and tofu veggie bowl:

  • 1 bag of Kale, tough stems removed, washed and chopped roughly.
  • 1 onion
  • Extra firm tofu cut in to cubed. I have used a pack of ready made tofu with olives.
  • 2 tbs soy sauce
  • 1/2 Tbs black pepper
  • 2 Tbs rice vinegar
  • 2 Tbs sesame oil
  1. Mix the soy sauce, rice vinegar and the pepper in a medium bowl. Add the cubed tofu and let it soak for a while. 
  2. Heat the sesame oil in a large pan or in a wok and cook the onion cut it into fine slices until soften; around 5 to 10 minutes. 
  3. Add the tofu and cook, allowing to brown before turning, on all sides until golden.
  4. Finally, add the kale and lower the heat. Sauté until the kale turns bright green. Add a dash of vinegar and salt on taste.

See you next week



Morning guys! I have been a little absent and was not able to post as much as I used to but I hope this month will be just like every other month. I will try to begin each Sunday with a new post.

Today I wanted to write a little about minimalism, which is quite important in my style, in objects that I want to get, magazines that inspire me, in the artist that I love the most and in music that I listen to. 

When I was 12 years old I went to Michael Nyman’s concert. I can still remember how the piano solo was expressing that much, in such a simple way, that felt just, perfect. 
The minimal-trend that I have a preference for in design and architecture is where all is reduced to just the necessary elements bound to geometrical frames.  I find those in the extreme simplicity of Japanese tradition, in light and spacious interiors form the mid-century Scandinavian design and in some of the most well known architects, like Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and his “less is more” concept.
I love strong lines and open spaces, high ceilings and white walls, warm cloths and easy fit, geometric forms and black and white.

Here are my latest minimal acquisitions; all functional with both delicate and geometrical minimal feel:

Make it simple but significant.

Have a nice Sunday beauties!

I was recently inspired to fill some courgettes with some of my favourite mediterranean flavours.

100gr gr couscous. 
2 large courgettes
2 large onions
1 carrot
5 medium mushrooms
1 can of tomato pure

Pre-heat the oven to 180*C. Cut the courgettes in half lengthwise and place on a baking sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes to soften. Remove the courgettes and scoop out the pulp, leaving the shells intact. Chop the pulp and place in a bowl. 
Cook the couscous in a separate pan according to the time instructed on the package.
On another pan cook the onion about 5 minutes until transparent and then add the sliced carrot, chopped mushrooms and the courgette pulp an finally add the tomato pure.

mix the vegetable mixture with the couscous and Stuff the courgette shells. Sprinkle the buttered cracker mature cheddar over top. Return to the oven and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes until browned and bubbly. Serve immediately.

I can still clearly remember eating this soup in front of the sea. What's it like to spend everyday on, in or next to sea? That would be my dream, a house with a big window with panoramic views of the horizon. My favourite part would be to feel that I am outside, even when I am inside.

I has been a wile since I wanted to share this recipe. I know that not all of you fancy a cold soup in winter, but just in case you are one of those others, like me, that eat ice-cream all year long.


1 lage melon
3/4 to 1 cup of light coconut milk
1/2 teaspoon of fresh lime juice, or to taste
fresh herbs like mint, time or any kind you like
oil and vinegar for a light vinaigrette
2-3 Ice cubes

Cut the melon in cubes. Combine the ice cubes, chopped melon, coconut milk, lime juice and blend until smooth.
If needed, chill a bit the soup.
When ready to serve, divide the cream in serving bowls and garnish with fresh herbs and the vinaigrette.

I can stop listening to this sweet folk song:
