Do you all remember when I met Malakeh Jazmati from Damascus last year? She and her husband fled the war in Syria and came to Berlin a few months before I interviewed her for #harpersbazaargermany. Well, since then she had a beautiful baby boy and wrote a cookbook, which launches today! It's gorgeous, and full of delicious Syrian recipes as well as stories and the culture behind the food. (So far, the book exists only in German, but if that changes I'll let you know.) Malakeh is such a special person; I'm all verklempt to be celebrating this huge achievement with her today. πŸ’«πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ’• Link to the book in my profile.

Cut all my hair off! πŸ‘€

Bruno will nap *on* me but not *next* to me.


My day started at 5:49 am, when Hugo woke me to discuss the day's clothing options. (β˜ οΈπŸ‘ΊπŸ‘ΉπŸ’©πŸ‘ΏπŸ˜±πŸ˜‘πŸ’£) But it ends on the balcony at magic hour. Lucky me. ✨

This gorgeous little glass of peach-compote-topped malabi was the finale to a lovely spring evening at @booksandbagels in honor of @barbaramassaad's Soup for Syria cookbook, all proceeds of which go towards helping Syrian refugees in Lebanon and beyond. (Link to the book in my profile.) I'm so grateful to all the fantastic women in my Berlin world who do such creative, important and delicious work. Thank you to @kattekuna for organizing the evening, to @finebagels for hosting at her fantastic shop, and to @victoriaeliasd for cooking; the soup, the butter, the bread, everything was πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ. Most of all, thank you to Barbara for spreading the gospel of helping, of doing any little bit you can to make a difference in people's lives. I'm in awe of you all. πŸ’•πŸ™πŸΌ

The magic months have begun. #berlin ✨

Can't stop, won't stop. (This time with vanilla bean.)

This is just a little love note to @martefrisnesjewellery to express my gratitude. Max gave me this gorgeous little sapphire bracelet for my birthday in December. I wore it nonstop until it broke a few weeks ago. We were able to recover some but not all of the stones, but not only did @martefrisnesjewellery fix the bracelet and replace the missing stones, but at no charge to us and with the nicest communications. πŸ’« Great customer service is truly an art form. πŸ’•πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’•

Gave a little introduction to German baking at @terroirberlin today, with aaaaaaaaall the cakes, rustic and refined, from Hutzelmann and Cafe Buchwald. Thanks to @jokuti for the photo. πŸ°πŸ’«πŸ°πŸ’«πŸ°

Perplexed little man watching Sunday boot-campers, way back this morning when the sun was shining.
