1. Yesterday it was +17 (Celsius) and Lauren and I spent the day hitting up famous spots in Madrid for my Flat Stanley project.
2. We went out for dinner last weekend and it was delicious.
3. Words of encouragement and a replacement drivers licence and transport abono in the mail this week. Made me smile.
4. Finally got my hands on soy milk and I’d forgotten how delicious it is!

Things I’m Loving:

+ Foreign Romance Films – (In honour of Valentine’s Day.)
+ Roads & Kingdoms – (An awesome travel journalism site. Check it out!)
+ The Debrief – (For 20-something women. Also amazing, also check it out.)
+ Raspberry Slab Pie – (How delicious does that just sound?!)

dot1  Two weeks ago, at El Rastro, I had lost/had my wallet stolen and this week, I went and picked it up at the Canadian embassy. A couple of euros lighter, naturally, but everything else still inside.

My new favourite snack is pomegranates, natural yogurt and honey.

Things I’m Loving:

+ For wine & coffee lovers – (Also lovers of charts.)
+ Best commercial – (Because why are all things for girls pink?)
+ 40 Thanksgiving recipes – (Or recipes for fall/winter.)
+ A calming song – (To wind you down from your week.)
