I love sunday mornings. The quit empty streets make me feel very at ease and relaxed. This morning me and B took Berre out for a walk and past by our favorite magazine store. We stacked up on magazines and walked home.
After some not so good days it was great to start of the sunday morning like this. Now I am back behind my lap top trying to get started on my thesis. But I am very tempted to bake something today. So I think I might move myself to the kitchen. It's sunday after all, not a day to do something stressful.

Today is a day when nothing seems to work. A stupid misunderstanding with my boss. Where I feel very frustrated. A thesis that just doesn't seem to be getting finished. Ever! Just a general feeling that this day sucks! So what to do? 

Taking in a few deep breaths. Try to get the frown of my head and just get on with my day. But still I am working my ass of with at work filling in with for everybody and working way more then I should be. I think I deserve some credit. Arrrgg! 

So I got that of my chest. So maybe today I will focus on my own art dealing business. I have to photograph the paintings I bought and see when the next auction is. 

I am on the hunt for the perfect sweater. I think I got pretty close today. But this one is still my favorite!

As I pretend with my friends and random people I meet to be a real princess in the kitchen. I am starting to realize that the truth might be far from it. The results are more often than not mediocre at it's best. My boyfriend is sweet he says my cooking is delicious. (But he is used to his moms cooking and I think she doesn't now pepper and salt) There are some dishes that over time I have fine tuned and I can honestly say that they are quit good. My pasta bolognese is one of these. But I have to say that this has more to do with my moms Ethiopian spice mixture I can't live without. Everything will taste good and exotic with that mixture.

The other thing is baking. I read about it a lot and I can spend hours just looking at pictures and recipes on the internet. (the blog call me cupcake is one of my favorites!) In my head I've been making these wonderful layered cakes and cupcakes and the most delicious macarons. But the sad truth is, the best thing i've made is a lemon cake with a box where they put on the recipe! Ouch!

I blame my kitchen, honestly who can work in a small  old galley kitchen like mine? And really, I don't have all the right equipment either. So who can blame me? And my supermarket doesn't have all the fancy ingredients from these recipes. So when i figured out all these obstacles, I know for sure that I will be one of these women who can whip up a five coarse meal for 10.

So maybe tonight, after a day of browsing Martha Stewarts recipes, I will try a simple cupcake.

Well it really is wedding season for me. As I am hitting my late twenties people seem be to be popping out babies and getting hitched all around me. I have been sceptic for a while but after I've attended some of the most romantic and fantastic weddings and seem some of the cutest babies ever. Things are starting to itch. I want to be as gorgeous looking as my friend S, and have a the pretties babygirls as my friend C. But after contemplating these options I realize it's not for me, jet.... So my dear boyfriend can exhale and relax. For Now!
In the meant time I am enjoying these romantic images.
