Today was a special day. After a couple of long years I rediscovered a fantastic song written by a friend of mine, Kasandra, who is a great artist and a newly born blogger. She posted her “Don’t wake up choking” song to her Wordfalls blog and I would listen to it throughout the whole day. It’s funny how much you appreciate something once you come across it again …. At the end of the day I shared the song with another friend of mine. Soon after we let ourselves totally enjoy the song’s bluesy feel …. perfect for today’s grey and wet weather.

Even though, I have madly felt in love with Kasandra’s music and its melancholy, at some point I felt an unusual joy. I decided to celebrate Kasandra’s talent, the song of the day and my feel-good mood. For this reason I made a small, luscious granola yogurt dessert.

This super easy meal can be eaten as breakfast, snack or dessert and is easily adjustable – add more or less yogurt, honey and cereals depending on your taste. You can’t go wrong with it!

Enjoy it because it’s healthy and delicious!

A couple of days ago I returned from my voyages across Eastern Europe. During my trip I fell in love with Lviv, a sleepy town with that odd hidden vigor. Once Polish, now Ukrainian, Lviv preserves its authentic feel, multiculturalism and “Eastern” alterity in many ways. However, besides the town’s beautiful and unique tourist attractions, my attention was called by the quite obvious high heel obsession. It looked to me like a strong fashion statement among the local ladies. I spotted so many girls, who, without revealing any sign of discomfort, would walk in their stiletto killers on Lviv’s cobblestones throughout a day and night. I wonder how they manage those glam sky-high walks ……
