recipe : rosewater-raspberry-pistachio cake & a lovely video

Ever since I started sharing intimate details of my life. I’ve been wanting to share a glimpse of it with you. There is just so much a photograph of my food or outfit can depict. I want to show you how much I truly enjoy what I do on a day-to-day basis. This blog has introduced me to so many beautiful people and enabled me to realize what I absolutely love and cherish. That is my family, the ability to share my talents and hobbies, and you. All of you. There is nothing I want, but to bring inspiration to one’s life. Enlighten someone with what I have created. And I’m glad c&é is able to do just that.
I want to share that the blog has been and will always be my hobby. This virtual tree house of mine has been the perfect escape, an escape for when times get hard and I hope c&é can be that for you too. I just want you to know that life isn’t as perfect as I stage in an instagram photo. My world is just as normal or insane as yours. Life brings obstacles to everyone, but c&é has been created for you to emancipate from it all… It is hard to spend an entire day conducting quantitative risk analyses and then draft a post to publish at 6am the following day. But the continued support of my friends and family has been exponential and has proven effective. c&é has kept me happy. A place, thing or whatever you want to call it that has become my own.
I hope you take one thing from this message and that is to aspire for greatness. Engage your hobbies and talents and do what you love most. Above all, be a person of inspiration. It is the perfect gift.{and catch the behind-the-scenes video here}
