It’s no secret that I love writing blogs, but I love reading them just as much (maybe more). This is a new segment where I share with you all of my recent “coups de cœur”, or favourite things (yes I did just drop some French ;)), either online or in real life.

- I have always wanted to brew my own kombucha tea. Quick tangential interlude: I was once given a scoby (that's the.. well, fungus I guess, that you use to ferment the tea) by a guy I met in Budapest (admittedly, I spent some time with him before he gifted me said scoby). However, when he turned out to be verbally abusive with stalker tendancies, I decided to throw the scoby out for fear that it was either drugged or poisoned. Anyway, one day I will give kombucha tea another go, and when I do I will use this guide from My new roots!
- I can't wait to try this sweet walking tour of Paris, which happens to take place exactly in my arrondissement (especially Brigitte Bardot's favourite pastry store!)
- While I'm at it, I might also head to the 13th arrondissement to check out this awesome street art
- You can't have too many porridge recipes, so naturally I will be taking this porridge + vegan ice-cream recipe for a spin
- Speaking of which, there is a PORRIDGE BAR in Paris!
- An interesting perspective on why you should save money (via Cup of Jo)
- I have always enjoyed reading Cup of Jo's "Parenting in..." series (even though I'm clearly not a parent, it is always an interesting insight into different cultures - a subject which Ifind completely fascinating). The most recent edition focused on 15 surprising things about parenting in Jordan
- I am a huge fan of yogabycandace's yoga classes. No matter how many classes I attend with different teachers, nothing beats her YouTube videos (or her yoga retreat in Marrakech!!). I'm looking forward to trying Candace's 12 minute yoga for digestion (the camel milk not so much ;P)
- I want one!!!
- Love this quote, and the instagram account!

I have recently discovered a new way of passing time in the metro! In Paris you often have to change lines at least once, and there is hardly even any data connection down there (sigh!)(#firstworldproblems). But now I have started reading AUDIOBOOKS! Usually I read books really slowly, but I have already finished THREE books this month:
Modern Love by Aziz Ansari
Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert
Headscarves and Hymens by Mona Eltahawy
I am currently trying to finish The Longest Day by Corenlius Ryan in preparation for my D Day Beaches tour, but I’m finding it really difficult to concentrate, as I swear to God it is narrated by the voice of Stephen Hawking… :/
