Random Friday

Hello lovely friends!!

It seems like ages I’ve been here in the blogger world and it feels GOOD to be back! I took a few days off the Net, though I had to do some work at the office on Wednesday and Thursday. But now it’s vacation time until January 6, woohoo!

I have a very short christmas recap for you. Probably everyone will post christmas pics these days, so I try to keep it very short. It starts with my travel from Zurich to Basel – though I would have LOVED to have continued my journey to Paris!! Basel Paris

I only celebrated on Wednesday evening together with Mom, Sandro and Mom’s partner, nice and quiet.

When I woke up in the morning of the 25th, it was grey and rainy outside, like pouring rain. I had a run planned, and I definitely didn’t feel like going – but then I went. I knew, that the trail in the forest would be empty and with the right clothes and some good beats, I would survive. I am so glad I went! Despite the weather it was a fantastic run and I felt SO good under the warm shower after.


Effed up and messy sweaty wet, but happy

I enjoyed my quark pancakes postrun with some unpictured raspberries on the side and then went off to the office……..

Pancakes….which felt like this. I had a TON of paperwork to be done and I almost teared off all my hair.need-help-gif-pagespeed-ce_-cdgaw0uneI got in a little hurry, and had to be quick with make up, hair and outfit when I got home. Thank God some of the hair was still there.

And I forgot how much I love steamed carrots. salmonI snacked on white chocolate stolen from the tree in between courses. Yeah, I do that. chocolateI had no time for a manicure!! Unacceptable.

And THEN the festive part began – lightening the candles, listening christmas songs and grabbing unwrapping presents. christmas treeIMG_5989I got definitely spoiled, especially by Mom….

ringThis whole manicure thing needs to be fixed. ASAP.

Dessert wasn’t missing of course!! My creation. I made healthy brownies (of course no one noticed) paired with vanilla ice cream and more white chocolate. Hmmm.

Brownies/Ice Cream Sooo, that was my christmas! I was already in the gym yesterday morning and it felt good. After coming down with that mean cold last week, it was nice to be back in full power. I also made sure to get in as much clean foods and vitamins as possible all week long.

Soooo, that’s all I got for you today! I have a very quiet weekend with no plans ahead of me which I am looking forward to a lot. I need to be rested, since we will have a traditional pre-sylvester party on Monday, which always ends in a LONG night with drinks&dancing – I better catch up on some sleep beforehand. I’m sure it will be as fun as last year 🙂 Dancing My best friend Markus

  1. I’m impressed by your ability to run in bad weather – as soon as I see even a suggestion of snow or rain, I’m hitting the treadmill 😉 I hope you have a fun weekend Lucie!

  2. LOL. #Uglybutgood. You are the best.

    Honestly, I’m not surprised you had to work on the 25th- my best friend interned at the Zurich Film festival last year and her hours were like… 8am- midnight half the time! I’m glad you didn’t pull your hair out…otherwise how else can you whip your hair back n forth?

    And truth- steamed carrots are massively underrated. Those raw, non sweet ones always get the microwave treatment. 😉

  3. I love that you ninja the chocolate ornaments from the tree — I used to do the same exact thing when I was younger, and I’d always make sure to reshape the wrapping to make it look like the chocolate is still in there 😆 I’d probably still do it to this day, only my parents stopped putting chocolates on their tree 😦

  4. I ain’t looking at the mani, I am looking at that white chocolate chunk of HEAVENNNNNN!!!!!!!

    Looks like ou had a ball!! How fabulous- you look absolutely beautiful too! White chocolate is my favourite kind (I have eaten so much of the white stuff in the past three days- it’s just amazing) Have you tried white lindor balls- gosh I love them. And I made macadamia but butter and white chocolate truffles- the combination is a real winner that I would highly recommend (obviously a great combo for cookies and ice cream too :)) I am back at work already too. This weekend I am just resting ( I ended up in hospital on Christmas with food- poisoning- so need the rest!) Have a great weekend Lucie 🙂

    • Ok, this macadamia and white chocolate truffle idea – droooool!!
      And oh yes of course I know and LOVE the white Lindor balls!
      I am so sorry to hear you had poisoning on christmas!! How mean! I hope you fell better by now!

    Sounds like you have had a pretty great week!!! I love the candles on the tree – I would probably be too nervous to light them but I really like it!!
    And, all of that food looks tasty!!!

  7. I’m on holidays until Jan.6. I’m enjoying all of the festivities, and the relaxing part of it all 🙂

    Looks like you’ve been having a great holiday!

  9. […] to be honest, I don’t even have so much to tell you about this weekend. As mentioned, it was VERY quiet after the christmas week and with New Year’s ahead. I had some good food […]

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
