Every minute somewhere in Austria blood a (450ml) unit of stored blood is needed, however, hospitals are usually critically short on blood. Only 3.5% of the Austrian population regularly donate blood (source: Rotes Kreuz) which I think is frankly embarrassing as well as highly egotistic. Continue reading
“Viel zu spät begreifen viele
Die versäumten Lebensziele:
Freude, Schönheit der Natur,
Gesundheit, Reisen und Kultur.
Darum, Mensch, sei zeitig weise!
Höchste Zeit ist’s! Reise, reise!”
The other day, mum surprised me with an awfully delicious apple cake (“I made one you can eat as well” – that’s maternal love right there). Based on a recipe she found on Chefkoch.de, she modelled around a bit, then she forwarded me the original recipe including her comments and I “improved” it a little more. Not that it actually needed improving but I will rarely ever use a recipe 1:1. This is what I ended up with Continue reading
As with having my go at vegan, I was also rather very late to discover Blogilates but since mens sana in corpore sano, I figured only cutting out food I thought wasn’t good for me was only half the deal and started the Beginner’s Calendar last February, which Blogilates inventor/ brainiac/ wonderwoman Cassey Ho provides for free on her website.

When dressing for work, I tend to err on the conservative side. When I feel crazy, I will omit a blazer/ full suit for nice pants/ a pencil skirt and a – sometimes even colourful – cardigan every now and then (especially in summer when my chance of client contact is zero).
However, I’m not one of those fashionable women that are able to create stylish outfits from a minimal wardrobe without any (visible) effort. I also haven’t been brave enough to own the bright lippie (mind you, I do own several, but don’t actually wear them that often and definitely not to work).
That’s not to say that I don’t do colours though. I do. On my nails. There, I will wear any shade that strikes my current fancy. Continue reading
Usually, my sweet cravings behave indirectly proportionally to the temperature – as it gets colder, my sweet tooth demands more attention.
The other weekend I really felt like bullar – Swedish buns – but couldn’t find the one recipe that had it all. Therefore, I worked with those that came closest Continue reading
The first time I went, I was more than pleasantly surprised. The second time, I still couldn’t believe it was true. Now that I’ve been numerous times – for both breakfast and dinner – since Ströck Feierabend opened in February, I still find it perplexing how smooth and friendly the service presents itself.

Hello, dear reader,
While versions 1 to 3.0 were abandoned for reasons reaching from disinterest to a script injection attack that left Aliciouslog lifeless and (literally) empty, I’ve decided it’s finally time for a more professional approach to blogging other than writing for my own sake and mental health (including an elaborate backup so my content won’t suddenly be gone again).
What does this mean for you?
It means I’ll post more regularly than before, aiming for a more comfortable look and feel while sharing whatever goes on in my head with you and the world.
Oftentimes, this will be food-related.
As always, I’m looking forward to your constructive feedback on how to further enhance your experience on this page.
Now, hop on and enjoy the ride.
I love getting mail and especially love getting parcels. It’s the Christmas-feeling I get every time I get to unwrap something, whereas it’s completely irrelevant whether I know what’s inside or don’t.
Every year we will at least once find ourselves at Salzkammergut, a beautiful area of lakes surrounded by mountains (think: Sound of Music) close to Salzburg.
This year, we went skiing in Gosau in late March which was fantastic. The snow was great, the weather awesome and there were hardly any other people on the pistes.
Since autumn has proven to be rather mild again this year, we decided to have a last shot at hiking before the winter starts and as we had never been hiking in or around Tauplitz, Tauplitz it was. Continue reading
