Hello everyone, I hope you had a good week... Mine was better than the last - I feel a lot more upbeat and positive, there was a bit of socializing with lovely friends and we're making progress on our flat! Some inspiration from around the web this week:

/ #WhereIsMyName“The child comes out of the mother’s womb, but in no document relating to the child — from infancy to old age — does the mother’s name get registered. The interesting thing, however, is that the mother then, out of habit and tradition, becomes identified by the child. The woman whose name has no place in laws all of a sudden becomes ‘the mother of Ahmad’ or ‘the mother of Mahmoud.”
A social media campaign aims both to challenge Afghani women to reclaim their most basic identity, and to break the deep-rooted taboo that prevents men from mentioning their female relatives’ names in public.

"I'm not bossy, I'm the boss"
_ Queen B
The Ban bossy campaign highlights how "when little boys take charge, they’re often praised for being a “leader.” But when little girls do, they’re more likely to be scolded for being too “bossy.”" An interesting behind the scenes here.
/ Girls Night In
Two nights ago, I made this delicious and very pretty dish inspired by a recipe from the beautiful Sprouted Kitchen cookbook for my bunch of girlfriends. We sat on the new terrace, drank rose (almost all of us!) and chatted: it was a beautiful evening and the perfect dish - tasty, light and very easy on the eye. The cookbook is a wonderful addition to the kitchen, even for someone like me who almost never cooks from a recipe - it’s packed with healthy inspiration, beautiful images and lovely words from Sara.
