Free inspiration

We are almost in December and the weather could not be more gray, dark, wet and depressing. To fight against this bad weather and how it is affecting the mood, I have been bringing colors and vitamins more than ever to the kitchen. I truly believe that the food we eat can affect positively on everything we do.

I know I have a good imagination in the kitchen so it is natural for me to test new ideas and add ingredients to old favorite recipes. But sometimes the head feels empty and new healthy ideas are more than welcome. For sure the internet is fast and easy way to get this inspiration, but you know what, sometimes I prefer the old fashion way; coking books!

I made a trip to the local library and found so many inspirational cooking books that i don`t even know where to start. I was positive surprised how huge selection they have here and it was hard not to borrow all the nice books in one visit. The books I did choose in the end are all full of nice pictures (very important to me), new ideas, clear instructions, healthy foods and a lot that energy I need into these gray days. I love the fact that I can have these books for one month and seek the inspiration without any cost. And later I can just decide if some of the books are worth to buy.

Now the next step is to decide what to try first and not get too exited about all the new ideas, as there is a lot I want to try. When did you visit the library last time?

Printable calendar 2016

Yeas we are not even in Christmas yet and I am think about the new year already. It has been lazy Sunday as I have been feeling little sick today so I had plenty of time to do this little project I have had in my mind. Last year I printed out very nice looking calendar for my home office table and I could have easily done the same this year as the internet is full of free printable calendars. Despite of all those option out there I decided to make my own calendar this for next year so it would be just the way I want.

I did my calendar with Illustrator and I used this lovely Bakery font which I found from . That page has amazing collection of fonts and sometimes it is hard for me not to download them all. If you use the fonts in the site, just remember to check the license before downloading as they all have different limitations for use.

I wanted the calendar to be simple and give just the image of days and weeks without space for any marks. I like a lot how the calendar ended up so I also wanted to give you the possibility to print it out for your home office. Just click the files and print the PDF out to create your own calendar.

I hope you will like your calendar and I would be happy to see how it looks on your home office so please tag me (Instagram @laurat0n) if you snap a photo of it so I can see it also. I wish you a lovely Sunday evening!

Beaujolais nouveau

Today I realized yesterday was the third Thursday of November, so it was time do some wine shopping. Every year in this same time the Beaujolais Nouveau wines come to the market and are sold out here super fast. Few years a go I had to hunt it down from one small alcohol shop, but luckily this year I was on time.

For sure this is not the fines of all wines but there is something in this tradition. It is nice to hunt it down and then keep the fingers crossed that the wine is good. Some years I have not liked it, and some years I have loved it which is of course then sad as you probably can`t get another bottle.

So let`s hope the best for this year, have a lovely weekend!
