Sweet remedies against the flu

This week I've finally started a new job and...guess what??
I got sick!!! I couldn't believe it!!!
Cough, cold, sore throat and a slight fever..on Wednesday evening I was completely destroyed..but I couldn't miss a day of work!!!
Here are some tricks that have helped me get to Friday night:
- First of all this delicious yogurt cake..something sweet and light to begin a day of work, with a cup of green tea.

- Makeup: after a sleepless night to blow the nose and cough a "morning restoration"  becomes necessary in order to be presentable in the office.
It's important to keep soft the skin of the face with a moisturizer cream and use soft handkerchiefs to avoid unsightly redness.

-Go to bed early with a cup of hot chamomile tea, a good book (at the moment I'm reading "Memoirs of a Geisha" ) and thyme cream that has to be spread on the chest and under the feet ... it seems unbelievable but it helps!!!
And last but not least: the company of my two favorite darlings .. Cloe and Minù!!!




  1. Argh nightmare ! That happened to me once and it's awful, you have to drag yourself in when all you want to do it stay at home :( Hope you have a nice rest over the weekend to recover.

    The yogurt cake looks so good and I want to steal your dog! x

    1. You are lovely darling!!!:) Thank you so much!!! <3

  2. Urgh i've had the lurgy (what I call a cold) this week, sucks doesn't it?! It's all about the orange juice for me and the tissues with aloe!

    1. I totally agree with you Rachel!!!I must drink more orange juice..especially now that I work with children in a nursery school and that I have to protect myself against their virus ;)!!!
