Early Fall Go-To Uniform

Tuesday, October 6, 2015

What have you been wearing lately? With the ever changing fall weather, I found myself mixing midi skirts with chunky sweaters. Seems this pairing is perfect for not-too-sure-weather days when you don’t want to either under-dresses and freeze or over-dresses and feel way too hot.

Fancy trying yourself?

Bensimon sneakers - sweater or this one - check skirt - watch - linnea bar necklace - bra - Sugar tinted lip treatment in passion - personalized bar bracelet  - bag.

P.S: Fancy more?
P.P.S: And tons more fashion trends.

Bread and a Dog

Fancy a smile? Recently, a Japanese food stylist and a baker Natsuko Kuwahara published a book all about two of the world’s greatest things: breakfast and dogs. The whole book is a collection of recipes and photographs of her beloved pup Kipple adorably photobombing her daily breakfast shot. My Buffer does the same thing, always hoping for something to accidentally end up on the floor:)

P.S: Aww, the window seat:)
P.P.S: Also, camping with dogs and do you remember Nipper?

Autumn Dinner Party Hairdo

Monday, October 5, 2015

Tonight Balazs has a work dinner party, so my plan is to slip into my favourite simple navy blue dress, paint my nails this colour and attempt to make my hair look exactly like on the photo above. I’ve been practicing over the weekend and it seems pretty doable.

Btw, I’m curious, what do you usually wear for a work dinner party? Something totally new or a trusty outfit that makes you feel great in your own skin? For me it’s the latter. Years ago I read an article with tips on dinner parties and one of them was to always wear something trusty. Supposedly, that is the only way you'll be more open to approach strangers for a chat. Makes sense, doesn't it?

Fancy trying the hairdo too? Here is the full how-to:

P.S: Also, oxblood nails and tons more beauty goodness.
P.P.S: The 'it' nude lipstick.

Morning Coffee Tweak

How was your weekend? On our end, the past two days were utterly relaxing. Basically a mix of sleeping in, baking, eating and getting totally hooked on Melissa’s homemade maple pumpkin latte syrup. I made a jar of it on Friday late night, so we could try it out on Saturday morning and boy, oh boy, with every new sip, I felt like autumn is finally here (the rain helped as well).

It takes 8 ingredients that you probably have at home, and a jar of it can stay in the fridge for up to 3 weeks. Win-win! (Here is the recipe).

P.S: Not a big fan of pumpkin? How about vanilla?
P.P.S: The New York Times + coffee.

Cheers to a relaxing weekend

Friday, October 2, 2015

Cheers to the weekend! What are you up to? Tomorrow I’m planning a farmers’ market visit and I’m hoping to score some beautiful wild flowers, tiny pumpkins and glorious zucchinis to make bread with them. Also, I just started to watch The Following this week and I’m already hooked. So captivating! Have you seen it? Dears, have a great next two days and I’ll see you back here on Monday morning, but in the meantime, fancy getting lost in some web-goodness? Enjoy!

Nutella Stuffed Sugar Cookies - Oh yes!

Thursday, October 1, 2015

Ok, I’m just going to put it out there and say that those Nutella stuffed sugar cookies are probably the most tempting little treats I had in the longest time. I made them last night and by today I finished the last one with my morning coffee. They are like little soft and chewy pies of goodness that you will want to eat over and over again. Now make some too, but remember, you’ve been warned! :)

Any Nutella fans out there?

P.S: If so, here is more Nutella goodness.
P.P.S: Also, do you remember this 2 ingredients, 30 minutes Nutella cake?
