Through a Roman’s Eyes

Thursday, September 3, 2015



Have you been to Rome? Even though Balazs and I missed out on it last time around, we are still planning a trip there (hopefully soon).

So, the other day while browsing, I stumbled upon this sweet little short by Oliver Astrologo that stole my heart! This brilliant guy wanted to re-introduce this mega-city by showing it to us through a Roman’s eyes - with its widely known touristic attractions and those more intimate and quieter sides not many have the chance to see. Careful, if you watch it, you might want to book a trip there right away. I know I do:)

P.S: Also, Amalfi Coast, and have you seen this film?
P.P.S: Frozen Venice and a dash of Italian romance.

Computerless Summers.





In 2012, a Polish photographer Izabela Urbaniak realized that with all the computer games and the constant need to be plugged in, her two sons might miss out on enjoying their life because they are glued to their gadgets. So, in hopes to show them how awesome summers can be and to relive her own childhood memories, she came out with the idea of creating a one month summer vacation that is totally computer and internet free. For the last couple of years she takes her sons and their cousins to the countryside where they spend their days playing outdoors, dipping their toes in a lake, running around and getting to all sorts of shenanigans. Pretty wonderful, isn’t it?

P.S: Breathtaking Polish fall foliage.
P.P.S: Midsummer night in Poland.

A night on Earth

Wednesday, September 2, 2015




Our new downstairs neighbor is renovating their flat (read: making incredible noise on repeat). So for the past week, I’ve been trying my best to bring a dash of calming goodness into my days. This series by NASA which reveals the nocturnal beauty of the Earth seen from space have been making all that noisiness totally bearable. Somehow ever since I was little, I've been fascinated with our planet and those images just prove how dreamy, mystical and darn stunning it really is.

(Psst: any advice on how to not get totally fed up with noisy neighbors is welcome:)

P.S: Also, dazzling summer Olympic games from space and the awesome supermoon.
P.P.S: Plus, 15 sunrises and 15 sunsets a day!

Home Tweak: Kilim Rugs





You know what? I have a major crush on Kilim rugs right now! Aren’t they pretty? Besides declaring my love for them, I’m also convinced they can make even the most minimalist home feel cozy and snug. Somehow their bright colours and funky designs emanate the perfect amount of style and comfort. I’m thinking about getting this one for the bedroom or that one for my office space.

What do you think? Would you have one in your home?

P.S: #1 rule to an autumn home.
P.P.S: I have this thing with floors.

Epic Veggie Sandwich with Sauerkraut



Last May, I became totally hooked on making my own sauerkraut after I tried Luise’s recipe. Have you made your own before?

Ever since then I’ve been reading tons on eating healthy bacteria and the best ways to add them to my everyday diet. So besides eating homemade fermented cabbage with my morning eggs, or as a side to my lunch - last night Balazs and I made Mary’s pesto, mozzarella and sauerkraut veggie sandwich for dinner and it was epic!


Those suckers are full of natural goodness and look like a rainbow on a plate. So, if you fancy a healthy, hearty and super easy dinner this week, here is the recipe. (Psst: if you‘re not into making your own sauerkraut, Whole Foods have some great raw options).

Fancy a bite?

P.S: Also, this one, that one and those too.
P.P.S: Tricky!
