Tivoli, Copenhagen

7 Oct


Even though we have visited Copenhagen several times we never had the chance to spend a joyful day at Tivoli Gardens, the amusement park that has been there to make every adult and child in Copenhagen happy since 1843. During a few hours we were amazed by a wonderful little world of fantasy hidden in the center of the city. Here you have a few pictures of our the afternoon when we felt like childs again…

Oven baked fries

5 Oct

Double_Baked_Fries_7Autumn is the best season for comfort food. These first cold days are perfect for curling up in the sofa with a soft blanket, a good book or a good film and… something yummy, comforting and carb loaded, because if it has no carbs, it isn’t comfort food. Those first afternoons under the blanket and those first warm succulent bites are particularly nice now, mostly because they feel distinct and original, just like the smell of brand new books in September. This season this is our go to recipe when we feel peckish and we are in front of the tv or a good book. It can also be a great side dish for your Autumn meals and, even though they are the epitome of extra comforting, these fries are a little bit healthier than your average fries because they are not fried. They are baked! Continue reading

70’s trends & Other Stories

1 Oct

&Other Stories - Wrap Front DressIt has happened again. I said I hated a new trend and then I fell for it. Personality? What’s that? In my defense I have to say that I’m not in love with the whole 70’s trend in general… I still hate flares. But those boho, flowy dresses? Those, those I love! Continue reading

Moodboard: York

29 Sep

Moodboard_York_1We’ve just back from our holidays in Copenhagen and we can’t help but thinking about packing our bags and going somewhere else. Severe case of Wanderlust… And since Autumn is my favourite season I can think of million places where I would love to see the changing colours of the trees. One place that is very close to our hearts and that, for some reason, hasn’t been on the blog yet is York. We met in this magnificent city and we’ve never came back since then.

Almanak, Copenhagen

28 Sep

We are back from Copenhagen, where we have spent the most amazing ten days. We’ve had wonderful walks by the water, we’ve discovered new corners, we’ve been inspired by the always beautiful Danish design and we’ve eaten fantastic food, for Copenhagen is home of some of our favourites restaurants. And this one in particular, Almanak, was one of the highlights of our trip. Continue reading

Nutella puff pastry bites

14 Sep

Nutella_pastry_bites_1We love puff pastry. It’s light, it can go sweet or savory and it turns every ingredient that goes with it into comfort food. This recipe is perfect if you want something sweet but not overly so, if you don’t have much time to bake and if you love Nutella. Plus it will make your house smell amazing. Continue reading

Sézane , Autumn/Winter 2015

10 Sep

Sezane - Manteau Octave
If you have been here before, you’ll know that we love this brand. Their lookbooks are always subtle, smart and irrisistibly French. We’ve been on a strict shopping diet for a while, but since Autumn is our favourite season and we feel we need a fresh start, we might as well start this renovation process in our wardrobes.  Continue reading

Dühne: the worst day of Summer

8 Sep


We are already in full Autumn mood so we’ve been reminiscing a little bit about this Summer that has gone by pretty quickly and barely noticed. It hasn’t been our most memorable Summer, but we’ve spent some great moments that were the reason why we posted a few articles: wonderful meals, afternoons by the swimming pool, Italian road trips and a few hours in Venice. However, I’ve been thinking that most travel blogs don’t mention epic travel fails and, well, we had one this year so I thought we should share it with you and laugh about it together. Because not everything in life is Instagram worthy! Continue reading

5 hours in Venice: from Santa Lucía to San Giorgio

3 Sep

Venice_Summer_2015_10I have to visit Venice at least once a year. It’s in my veins. I need it like my morning coffee fix. So even if it’s only for a few hours, I have to breathe that Venetian salty air that my great-grandmother used to claim was the best of the world. So during my last trip to Italy, between walks in the fields of Vicenza and road trips in Trentino, I managed to spend 5 hours in Venice. Only 5 hours. It wasn’t enought but I made the most of what I had. Continue reading

Moodboard: Cassis

1 Sep

Moodboard_Cassis_1September starts today and with it, all the plans for the new year. Because September is the real January, isn’t it? This year, however, we are facing a quite strange September I’d say… We are in that moment of our lives where we have to wait. Life feels like a waiting room and it’s fine with us. But that doesn’t stop us from dreaming about new destinations. Quite the opposite! If we are in a waiting room, let’s read all the travel magazines!
Lately I’ve been thinking about France a lot. Very strange because, honestly, it has never been among my favourite countries… I even want to start learning French! (See? New goals… that’s what September is for!) And since Cassis has been the star of Instagram this Summer (Lisbon was the queen of Instagram this Spring… it’s funny how travel trends develop thanks to social media) now all I can think about is sailing along the Calanques, spending sunny crispy mornings in the Cassis market and watching life go by from a lovely viewpoint overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Wouldn’t it be a nice way to make the most of the last days of Summer?

What about you? Any new exciting plans ahead? Or are you just feeling miserable because Summer is almost over?
