Hey Babies

I'm back! I am feeling a bit weird and in shock now as it's been officially 2 months working for Robuchon and I finally quit yesterday. The working hours were killing me and my health is deteriorating quickly. I'm very upset as I'm leaving a job that I love and leaving 2 very talented Chefs (Chef Narita and CHef Kanai) and I hope one day I can persue this career path again. In the meantime I'm going to take a break from being in pastry and maybe i'll start my own business selling confectionary online. Please stay tuned for that, and now I can finally put on makeup! My love for makeup as returned and I'm excited I will be blogging more and making more videos and basically letting myself enjoy life! I know I know 2 months was nothing ..but i was exhausted physically. I wanna thank you all for all the great encouragements throughtout this hard time in my life and I will "add oil" for my future endeavours.




  1. wow Cathy! How amazing for you :) i wish you the absolute best of luck! I'm sure you will find joy in whatever you do and it's always exciting to embark on a new adventure, no? :) wow those pastries look crazily delicious!

    good luck Cathy x

  2. Setting up your own confectionery business sounds like a great idea. At least I hope it's not as tiring as working at Robuchon.
    Good luck in your future endeavors!!

  3. So happy to hear you quit that hectic job! I was so worried about you and your health. I wish you the best of luck and I hope everything works out for you.

  4. I'm glad you quit, now you can sue them for exploiting you!
    good luck, with your personality and your delicious looking goodies, you'll be better than fine!

  5. Hey, that's a big step, congrats!
    If someone who doesn't know you can be worried about you getting ill, I was. You seem to have so much courage about your work, it's awesome and really, love it or leave it right? When that's possible I totally agree..
    I wish you the best of luck now, hope you're well! xx

  6. Hey Cathy!!!

    I just saw your video saying that you left your job. I'm sure you feel sad leaving your wonderful chefs behind, but I'm glad you know health is always first in life! :) I'm sure you will have no problems getting back to work, you're too talented and I wish you all the best!!!

    Now, get out there and shop for makeup!! :) haha let the stress-free life begin!!!
