Smoked Salmon 'Sushi' Rolls

Here's something fresh for spring that I experimented with using smoked salmon slices to wrap up 'standard' sushi ingredients. I love creating my own recipes throwing in ingredients that inspire me or sometimes best of all whatever is fresh and local. One staple food that is sadly not local but a must-have is avocado. It is so fresh and smooth, adding good essential fats to any meal or dessert.


Bon App├ętit!

Haute Couture Meets Rock and Roll

Photo by designboom

Lenny Kravitz and his design team have joined forces with Philippe Starck Designs for the latest version of the Kartell Mademoiselle armchairs. With six different styles, combining exotic finishes of python, fur, leather and woven materials, there is sure to be one that brings out your wild side!


"Philippe Starck has been wonderfully supportive of my design endeavours, so when he asked me if I would interpret his Mademoiselle chair for Kartell, I was excited about the idea of two icons collaborating in this way. The Kravitz Design take on the Mademoiselle chair is haute couture meets rock and roll". Lenny Kravitz

You can find the latest Kartell pieces including this collaboration at www.kartell.it.

Cottage Weekend


I spent this past weekend at my family cottage enjoying the sun, scenery and silence, with the exception of birds chirping, water flowing and the wind blowing through my hair. This was my first time up this season and I can’t wait to go back. My sister and I took an extended canoe ride through a Conservation Area and encountered wildlife that was far quicker than my camera trigger finger. Sometimes the best memories are those that can’t quite be captured, but for the rest I try my best.

Hello World


My name is Michaela. I have created this blog to open up and share my experiences with Design, Heath & Wellness and all things beautiful (inside and out). I feel as though I have a lot to share and I constantly aim to learn new things, be inspired and I hope to encourage and inspire others. I have been following several blogs and surprisingly feel a connection to the writers who may be thousands of miles away or sitting at my local Starbucks. I welcome anyone and everyone to join me in the journey I call life and I hope that I can add something interesting to your day. All comments are welcome as I hope to broaden my online community.
