Yesterday, I made rabbit in cider with celery, carrots and tarragon. It’s a sure sign that I have mentally switched to autumn. It is unclear how much cooking (by me) will take place in the coming months, as the work schedule will be tight. It’s certain, howe..
There are several entirely rational reasons for not wanting to buy and/or wear colourful clothes: they date faster than neutrals; you tend to get tired of them quicker; they are more difficult to combine with other items of clothing. Often, bright colours ar..
Serge Lutens is in the process of revamping its export (read: cheaper and more accessible) perfume line. I will again refer you to this article for more details, as I do not have the space nor the energy to go through all of it here. What is relevant for our..
