Cheers to the last weekend of August. What are you up to? Tonight, Sofia and I are going for a pottery class to learn how to make those amazing clay pots or at least attempt making them. Darling, stay safe and have a blast this weekend and I'll see back here on Tuesday morning, but in the meantime, here is a bunch of awesome links for you to check out. Enjoy! xo

Garden Fresh

Thursday, August 28, 2014


Eek, imagine meeting one of those rascals on your daily supermarket run. How would you feel? Uncomfortable, surprised, frightened, uneasy? Agan Harahap is the genius artist who used this unexpected series to shift the boundaries between humans and animals. Cleverly he showcased how those creatures would fit into our daily lives and how it would look if they themselves would also be shopping for ingredients for their next dinner party. Thought provoking, don’t you think? It gave me chills! xo

P.S: Llama type of day :)
P.P.S: Also, food shopping by colour.

Yellow Raincoat






Do you own a raincoat or are you more of an umbrella girl? I'm the type that always gets soaked when it rains because I refuse to carry an umbrella. So for my birthday, earlier this month, my mom sent me a classic bright yellow raincoat, so I finally stay dry! Thanks, mom:) It's the weirdest thing but I'm looking forward to rainy autumn days just so I can try it out.

Btw: Balazs told my mom that from now on I will never get lost since he'll be able to spot me from afar - go figure! xo

P.S: This one with Westminster print is amazing too...
P.P.S: Plus this cutie and his raincoat.

Feeling Peachy?




Our breakfast for dinner last night: brioche bread + sliced juicy peaches + fresh mozzarella = the best end of summer French toast there is! Last week our friends treated us to a whole box of their own home-grown peaches, so Balazs and I have been eating ourselves silly with those juicy fruits. The best part about this sandwich is when the mozzarella melts around the peach, making it irresistible. We always go for seconds. (Here is the full how to).

What's your go-to French toast recipe? Do share...xo

P.S: This is a must as well.
P.P.S: Plus this nifty trick to peeling peaches.

Funky Take on Bobby Pins

Wednesday, August 27, 2014





And while we are on the subject of all things lovely, recently I promised myself that this autumn I will make more of an effort to wear a funky bobby pin with my top knots and my messy braids. I just love how something so little like a bobby pin bumble bee can transform an everyday hairdo into something so sweet and sassy! What do you think? Would you wear it? xo

P.S: To barrette or not to barrette?
P.P.S: More awesome ways to wear your bobby pins:)

Autumn Trend: Fair Isle Sweaters






Ready for autumn? If like me, you're two ways about it, I have something that just might convince you. According to Elle, Fair Isle print knits are the go-to cozy uniform sweaters this fall. The chunkier and jazzier, the better! I love this little number in navy, it would look splendid with rolled up jeans, peek-a-boo ankles, flats and this little do. Go Nordic prints! :) Thoughts? xo

P.S: More awesome sweaters and pretty knit dresses.
P.P.S: Plus, snug sweater tights and my last year's go-to sweater.
