Welcome to my blog!
My name is Delphine and I am based in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia. I originally come from France and before moving to Canada in November 2016, I have lived in 3 different countries (Austria, Germany and Switzerland).
Life is not a long and quiet river and for the past 3 years, I’ve been looking for answers to live a happier and more fulfilling life. I can’t thank enough my favorite bloggers (Mimi Ikonn, Merrick’s Art, M loves M and the Daily Connoisseur) and the authors of numerous self-development books (Jack, Canfiled, Tim Ferris, Oprah Winfrey, …) for giving me so much inspiration. I am closer to my ideal life than ever before!
This blog is all about sharing with you some wisdom I picked up along the way. In particular, I’ll share with you my best recipes, my thoughts on happiness and positivity, my travels and my beauty tips. I really hope I can inspire you to live a beautiful and meaningful life. But most of all I hope we can be friends, I am so glad you found your way here!
My recipe for a happy life is that simple: don’t take things too seriously and have fun! Indulge in deliciousness, treat your body like a temple, cultivate your garden and explore the world! All you need is a touch of creativity and a bit of organization.
What to expect from the 4 sections of my blog:
Eat well: I’m a flexitarian but the recipes you’ll find in the “eat well” section are mostly vegetarian as I’m currently cutting down on meat. The only dishes with meat you’ll find here are with chicken, salmon, prawns and canned tuna. I am a huge fan of the French (my home country), Italian and Asiatic cuisines, that’s why you’ll find a wide range of recipes inspired by those 3 cultures.
Think twice: I strongly believe in the power of great books to grow. I’ve read tons of self-development books from which I’ve extracted nuggets of wisdom that I would like to share with you in the “think twice” section. Do you also think that you’ll never stop learning? Then stay tuned and join the conversation to discuss topics such as self-love, being positive, comfort zone and many more!
Explore the world: I have visited 27 countries and lived in 4 different countries so far. I LOVE travelling and my favorite way to discover a new country is on foot. I usually combine a trekking with a few days of “far niente” afterwards to have a mix of adventures and the luxury of comfort. In the “explore the world” section, I’ll share with you my past and future trips around the world and I hope that I can give you some inspiration for your next adventures on this beautiful planet!
Shine beauty: I’m an advocate of natural beauty products and in the « shine beauty » section, I’ll share with you my best finds in terms of organic and high-quality beauty products. Once in a while, I’ll also publish look books with my favorite outfits!
Grab a cup of tea and let’s do this together!
Lots of love to you all lovely readers,
