Weekend trip in Milan | Kapten & Son

Again, I have been MIA for what feels like forever. Even Summer has past in the meantime. We had an excruciatingly hot Summer in Taiwan, therefore I didn’t feel like cooking. Or rather like doing the dishes afterwards. Ergo, no food blogging for the past months. Sorry. Since I just got back from a trip to Europe and was able to spend a lovely weekend in Milan, I thought I just share all of the places that I thought were exciting and some that I thought were rather blah with you. I love it when I can spend a whole weekend literally doing […]

Recipe for carrot noodles with Peanut sauce

Summer in Taiwan can be excruciating. Even short walks from your home to the MRT are a small torture and can become quite embarrassing when you made a wrong wardrobe choice – Hello sweat stains!  I forgot the last time I slept without the AC running on full blast. I am probably going to miss the cracking sound once the weather decides to cool down.

The […]

Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion

Before I moved to Taiwan I have never been much of a cosmetics person. Don’t get me wrong, I am a girly girl that likes makeup and fashion but I hardly ever used moisturizer when I still lived in Germany.

That changed dramatically after moving to Asia. I may not be on a 10-step skincare routine, but I did start to incorporate multiple steps into my daily beauty regimen and I […]

Totoro Mini Succulent Garden

I love plants but unfortunately the feeling does not seem to be mutual. 🙁  Every time I go on a business trip, back to Europe to visit my family or the sun just gets a little bit too crazy, at least one of my plants decides to commit suicide. Therefore, I decided to make a mini succulent garden for the entrance area in my apartment. I mean, who can kill a cactus, right? Here is what you need for your mini succulent garden:  a small wooden box (I got mine at Daiso) cactae and succulents soil gravel optional: toy figures popsicle sticks white […]

Recipe for Egg in a hole

It is really embarrassing but recently I have been so busy that I didn’t even have the time to go to the supermarket. When I opened my fridge on Saturday morning, I noticed that I had nothing but some toast, butter, eggs, pea sprouts and tomatoes. Therefore, I decided to go for some really simple and easy breakfast and made Egg In A Hole. I love how the name is so literal.  The eggs I had in my fridge were organic eggs by the black boned chicken which are very tiny, therefore I had to use 2 eggs to fill one […]
