While you are reading this, Mum and I are on our way across the Atlantic, if we haven’t already touched down at NYC’s JFK airport.
It’s the first holiday with Mum – except for that oh-so-relaxing spa weekend at Die Wasnerin last spring – since 2005 and we’ve both really looked forward to spending a whole 10 days together. Continue reading Alicioustravels: Off to New York
My dear readers,
Some of you will have noticed that at the moment posts go live only once a week and that my activity on Instagram and Facebook has been down to the bare minimum.
The reason for it is that I’m currently extremely busy in my other life (that is, in the job that pays my bills), that my camera died on me a few weeks ago (fingers crossed I’ll get it back – fixed – in time for New York!) and that my computer is in its last breaths.
For my Christmas holidays I am planning on getting Aliciouslog back on track (hopefully with a new laptop), posting regularly again twice a week from January.
Thanks for hanging in with me – I really appreciate your support!

Therefore, one of the hardest things to learn was that I wouldn’t be able to – and really shouldn’t try to – make everything at our wedding myself.

You are slowly getting used to your ring and may have bought and flicked through your first bridal magazine. Every time you tell someone that you’re going to get married, they ask you a lot of questions that haven’t really occurred to you because your Big Day is still months away. Continue reading Aliciouswedding: …but where to start?!
With Sunday’s post I’ve welcomed you on my journey to getting married. Since you are looking forward on a plethora of post with the word “wedding” somewhere ubiquitously embedded, I have decided to start Aliciouslog’s first series: All About Weddings. Continue reading Aliciouswedding: NEW SERIES All About Weddings
I am forever grateful that when Mr A proposed to me, he didn’t use those words. We were both excited – he for the obvious reasons and myself because he finally asked the question I had been waiting for him to ask for…well, quite some time. Needless to say, I accepted without any doubt or hesitation. Continue reading Aliciouslife: Let’s get married
This summer was one of the best I can remember. From July on it was hot. Really hot. Temperatures above 30°C were the norm and I loved every moment of it. Only when it came to cooking and baking did I momentarily wish for air-conditioning. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Lemon-poppyseed cake
When I was five years old we moved from an apartment in a town of 50,000 to a house with garden to a village of a few hundred. It’s the place where my maternal grandfather was born, called Wald which – aptly – translates to “forest”. Continue reading Aliciouslife: Picking wild blackberries
