Good morning!!

I thought it’s been WAY too long since I did a Currently…. post. I think they are superfun, so here’s my survey for August.

Current Book:

The last part of the Rose-Trilogy. I am almost at the end of this book and I can already feel a tiny depression creeping in. Are you as sad if a good book comes to an end? Besides of the morning hours, my favorite time of the day is the moment when I fall into my bed and grab my book for my bedtime reading. There is no other time I am more relaxed. It’s the end of the day, I am unplugged, clean, ready to sleep and in peace. Paired with a good book – bliss.


I LOVE fiction stories of women in the 1800’s. Not that I would have wanted to live back then, but the stories and everything that is connected with it (the clothes, the horse-drawn cabs, the mentality) is so fascinating for me. It is so nice to dive into this complete different world and forgetting about all the rest around me.

Current Music:

Such an OLD classic. And I am obsessed by this song since YEARS. I LOVE MC Solaar and this one awakens all my teenager memories. Yes, I was a HipHop Girl for a little time. Hip Hop – even better in French.

Current guilty pleasures:

Listening to my favorite voices and music at work. Actually, I don’t feel guilty because my boss gave me wireless headphones to actually listen to my favorite stuff (> increases my concentration).


Current Nail color:

Naked! But they will soon be purple.


Current Drink:

Water. It’s cooler today, but we had crazy hot temps since the beginning of July. With the amount of water I drink, I might be washed away one day.

Current Food:

FRESH. The choices are wonderful at this time of the year!! Not only fruits and veggies, but also baked chicken (inspired by this girl), quinoa, salmon or seafood.

Current Favorite Show:

They show old episodes of SATC on Monday night. All I need for a Monday night.

Current Needs:

Kettlebells!! I love my barbells and free weights, but to change things up, I love working out with kettlebells too. I am looking into ordering some for my home workouts.

I accomplished all my workouts first thing in the morning lately. It definitely is a lot more easier to get up in Summer!

AND tonight is weekend. I’ll be heading direction Zurich. And I can leave a clean apartment, done laundry and a bed with fresh sheets behind in Basel. I had a little help of this guy. He scares me, but is very convenient too.


Current Bane of Existence:

Mosquitos. Now seriously. I mean, it is definitely not ok that one of these little jerks bit my right eyelid the other night (BEFORE the wedding!!). I woke up and immediately realized that I am not able to open my right eye. Running to the bathroom just to figure out that I look like I was punched in my eye at night. And walking around like this all day in PUBLIC. But that’s not it yet, no. Another one had the nerve to bite me my boobs around my chest area THREE times. Left, right, left. PLEASE!! Hello?? Ever heard of something like privacy and discretion?!

Current Celebrity Crush:


I am going to see him in ONE WEEK!!! I even have a ticket for the golden circle. #groupie

Current indulgence:

I am planning to make more of the Almond Joy Cookies on the weekend!

Or maybe the Almond Bliss Chocolate Bars….not sure yet.

Not to forget about my White Almond Butter….



Can you figure there is a little almond obsession going on?

Current Blessing:

It’s summer, I am healthy, it’s weekend and I see my man tonight.


Current Slang:

Yay!! Is that slang??

My fellow American, Canadian and British readers, teach me some slang! I promise I will do my first vlog if I get enough slangs.

Current Outfit:



Current Excitement:

See current blessing.

Current Mood:


Current Link: I am investing in some work with Erin and it’s a success so far!


Current Music?

Current Food?

Current Excitement?

Current ANYTHING? Tell me!!

Who thought I would ever write again. Link in Bio. ‚'In essence, love is the consistent embodiment of care, compassion, kindness, and joy toward yourself, your partner, and each other as two interconnected and supported beings. If you encounter those feelings, you can't work around your own vulnerability.

But: there is one emotion that is stronger than fear, and that is forgiveness. For power is never simply a possession but an exercise; power is about how we understand ourselves. If we can forgive, we can let go. If we can let go, we can detach. If we can detach, we find happiness.' #blogger #heartstories #detachment #happiness
