Happy New Year! We are back from a crazy couple of weeks in Spain and we are still adapting to our slow-paced life in Germany. We hope you’ve had a wonderful time with your family and friends, we sure did and now it’s time to get back to work and our beloved routine.
First of all, this is not a post about New Year’s resolutions, mostly because we don’t have any. We just hope 2018 brings health, that’s all. However, we are quite excited about 2018, a year that starts on Monday has to be a great one, no? And since this year looks so organised already, we want to get this online space all tidy, neat and prepared for the next months. So, here’s what you can expect from The slow pace this year….
What started as a travel blog has turned into a different thing because… well, because we can’t travel as frequently as we would want to, because I am a beauty addict and I love sharing whatever I’m coveting and because cooking and food have a very important place in our lives and, in the end, this space reflects our everyday life so, it’s an honest reflection of us. And even when we don’t have millions of visitors or thousands of followers, we enjoy being us. And that’s exactly what we will do in the next 12 months.
Of course we will continue sharing our tips for European weekend getaways, including restaurants, long walks and slow-paced travel ideas. We are planning a weekend in London in February and another one in Venice in March. As much as we would love to escape more often, that won’t be possible, but hopefully we will be able to squeeze a couple of long weekends away in our schedule before Summer.
Food will be very important this year in The slow pace. We want to share more recipes and continue with our cooking and meal prep tips because we want to help you with your everyday life, the life where you don’t feel like cooking dinner, where you crave chocolate and naughty desserts and where you have lot of things to do apart from cooking a perfect meal. We want to focus in easy, healthy dinners because we find that after a long day of work everyone wants a delicious meal (as a reward for all the hard work), but at the same time no one wants to spend hours in the kitchen or eat fast food that makes you feel bad the morning after. No foodie walk of shames!
And finally that cliché category that is lifestyle… We will keep talking about makeup and we will focus a little bit more on skincare, because time passes by and we want you to feel good in the skin you are in. We will also keep you updated in our capsule wardrobing shenanigans and we will publish more content about entertaining and home decor. We love staying at home and we feel that we don’t share this passion for homey things around here. Flowers will appear more frequently (I really doubted about publishing this post last year and it ended up being one of the most popular posts of 2017!) and, in general terms, we will try to put into practice what we are learning from the book that has open our personal book club in 2018: The subtle art of not giving a f*ck (in this case, when hitting the publish button).
Welcome to The slow paced 2018, hopefully we will entertain you and make your coffee breaks nicer!
PS: let us know if you want to see something else in here, we would love to know your opinions!
