Spring Cleaning: Glass Jar Storage Solution

Wednesday, April 1, 2015

Kitchen trends come and go, but the one that is kind-of perfect is the glass jar storage solution. Whether you pile your mismatched jars neatly on your open shelf, or display them on your kitchen counter, they will refresh your kitchen in no time. The best part about having them within hand's reach is that you’ll actually use them more often. So, if you fancy getting started on your spring cleaning, get a few jars, clean out that cabinet and get going. Deal?

P.S: Cookbook shelves.
P.P.S: And this home makes me swoon.

The Art of Simplicity: Dressing in Three Colours

Have you heard of the dressing-in-three-colours rule? It’s a quick and a fuss-free concept to looking good in no time.

It’s all about wearing no more than 3 colours per outfit including accessories and lipstick. Sara says that following this simple rule will make choosing your morning outfit very easy. What's the best way to incorporate your accessories? Simply match them with one of the 3 colours you use that day. Wearing a patterned blouse? Find a bag or lippy shade that matches the dominating print. Sounds pretty easy to follow, don’t you think? Above are a few nifty examples that I love. Ah, simplicity at its best!

Would you give it a go?

Flying over LA

My love for landscape and the beauty of symmetry in architecture just got a dash stronger. Meet Jeffrey Milstein, the awesome photographer who travels through the country snapping sky-high photos of all things cool. This particular series is of Los Angeles with its stunning houses, beautiful marinas packed with yachts and all the awesomeness that comes with this gem of a city. Now each time I will fly over LA, I will always think of those cool images. You?

Budapest Then and Now

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

Have you been to Budapest before? It's such a gem of a city and I'm not only saying it because it's Balazs' hometown:) Anyway, a few days ago, we stumbled upon those amazing images of Budapest back in the 1900's beautifully merged with photos of the same locations in the present day. Seeing new projects like that makes me realize that cities are living things that evolve, grow, change and adapt with time. So much history in one single snapshot! Aren't they awesome?

P.S: Also, an amazing look back at Paris and a dash more of Budapest goodness.
P.P.S: 30 years of romance in the Big Apple :)

Low Loose Bun Day.

Swoon! I don't really miss having very long hair, but this morning I spotted this understated low loose bun and I literally gasped. The simplicity and that fiery colour totally blew me away. I have a photo of my mom when she was in her 20's wearing her hair exactly like that.

So if you fancy giving it a go, here is the how-to:

How long is your hair right now?

Springtime in Bonn

A few years ago I fell in love with this tiny little street in Bonn, Germany. Have you heard of it? It’s a short avenue full of cherry blossom trees that bloom once a year for about 2 weeks and make the whole place look like a magical pink forest. So when last night, Balazs reminded me of it, I realized it’s almost time for it to bloom. Supposedly, this year it will happen around the middle of April, so if you’re lucky enough to find yourself in Bonn in April, you should totally visit Heerstraße street to enjoy all this goodness in person.

Can you imagine living there? Wow, must be awesome!

P.S: Spring festival of colour.
P.P.S: Also, Easter hair blooms and this spring cake.
