If you are a lover of simplicity and minimalism, you've probably already seen the images of Maison Martin Margiela's Heritage Collection. The ‘Héritage’ collection recasts the conventional symbols of wedding and heirloom pieces, blending uniqueness with luxury in an unconventional way. This collection is divided into 4 themes: ‘Solitaire’, ‘Alliance’, ‘Chevalière’ and ‘Pompadour’. I'm not much into fine jewelry but that astonishingly beautiful sapphire and white gold ring is quickly making me change my mind.
Finding new things to make at home has been hard for me lately, I've been trying to up my protein intake but I just wasn't having fun eating all that chicken and tuna so after doing my fair share of research and I changed to supplements and hemp protein.

As usual, please feel free to add, subtract and share your version of the recipe with us.

I'm not an expert when it comes to time management and productivity, I can only share what works for me and below are some of the things that have helped me for the last couple of years.
