Recipe for a Great Book Club

IMG_5014This week was actually rather busy for me, as I’m improving my Expat social calendar weekly. I started a Book Club here in my neighborhood and I hosted the first meeting. We read the book, “The Miniaturist”, and I have to admit it was not as good as I had hoped. It had everything to make it great, with a historical and lovely setting, a promise of mystery and intrigue, and promising complex characters, but it all fell short. To me, the book seemed like it touched on everything but fully developed little. Read more

My Favorite Things in London

IMG_5002

If you had asked me two years ago if I would lead the life I currently lead, I wouldn’t have even been able to imagine the possibility and would have laughed at the thought. I was just a (fabulous if I dare say) girl in NYC, working 6-7 days a week, meeting girlfriends for trips to the beach and subconsciously trying not to focus on all the bad dates and constant worry I would be alone forever (haha) when I met Dragan at a rooftop bar for 3 minutes, not recognizing that moment would change my path forever. Then, several months later, making the conscious decision to take another path and move to Europe and marry this man. Voilà and here I am, and I’ve been so lucky to travel to my favorite place on a regular basis. In fact, I had never been to London when I met Dragan, but I had always dreamed of it, often speaking in a British accent for days on end and to my friends’ chagrin. 🙂

Now, I go to London often, and while I am no expert, I wanted to share my favorite things thus far. Read more

Geneva in Stripes

IMG_4746IMG_4754Hello! I’m really excited for this post because it combines my love of fashion with my love of Architecture, as the shots were taken in some stunning locations.

I originally wanted to post this dress in 2 ways, taking it from day to night, but Friday became quite cold and 5 minutes before leaving to shoot the post, I realized I would freeze to death! Read more

Spring Cleaning! 

IMG_4624Hi Everyone! We have been so spoiled by gorgeous Spring weather here along Lake Geneva for the past few weeks, that today when a rainy and cold day hit, I was actually caught by surprise!!! Ha! But, still in the mood for Spring, Dragan and I had a cleaning day.

After starting our day with fresh Pain Chocolat, and watching The Hangover 2( I know, I’m a little embarrassed) we got to work! How much do you love these mugs?  They make GREAT gifts! The “D” mug is from C Wonder and the “S” mug is from Anthropologie!!

We played great music ( Missy Higgins Radio mixed with Bruno Mars radio on ITunes) and we organized, mopped floors, cleaned windows….basically all the things I hate ❤️…..and bought fresh flowers for all over the house. I love all flowers, but for Spring, I’m a Tulip girl all the way!

I live how clean my house feels right now and enjoying some of my new purchases! I bought this floral vase at Anthropologie when in London, the super cute canisters at Hobby Lobby in Ohio, and this cute clock and outdoor floral bucket at IKEA!

Think I’ll run a bubble bath…..have a glass of wine……and read! Currently reading “The Miniaturist” and LOVING it! It’s Historical, Suspenseful and Thought Provoking!

Hope you have. A great day! Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram for more up to date daily photos on Travel, Fashion, and My Life!!!

Dressing for the Cold…Snow Day 2

IMG_2201

Yesterday was full of snow, and we definitely made the most of it! I’m glad I was able to pull out my full ski gear for a few hours of romping around in Divonne. We decided to stay in the area as the roads were still bad and it was still snowing all day, so we took Jasper up to the chateau to play! I love going to the chateau b/c we typically have the place to ourselves and we can always get a hot chocolate inside if it gets too cold. I love that the hotel doesn’t mind us taking advantage of the stunning grounds. Read more
