Stockholm profiles are blue, pointy, calm, majestic, nautical, romantic and powerful. Undoubtedly, this city is made to be admired, walked and savoured slowly. Continue reading
Good morning! The sun shines, the temperatures are warm and right now that’s all we need to be happy. That, and a fabulous Spring wardrobe to go with it. Of course, by fabulous we mean monochrome, basic and wearable. No flower prints, no pastels, no 70’s looks for us. That’s why we wanted to share with you the new pieces that AYR has added to its collection. AYR is one of those brands that we absolutely love. Its motto is: good design is always in season. And that’s pretty much what we want to have in our closets. Good quality pieces and edited essentials that last. Continue reading
This weekend we attended The Hive Conference. For those of you who don’t know what it is, let us explain: The Hive is a meeting of pretty awesome people (mostly women) who love sharing beautiful and interesting content online. So basically we spent two days getting inspired and encouraged. We listened to brands, we were mesmerized by other blogger’s experiences and we had THE BEST time.
Picnic season is almost here! Well, maybe you are lucky enough to live in a warm place, but here we have been sgruggling between sunny but very cold days and November-like weather. Anyway, we hope for the best, so we have our picnic basket prepared and we have been testing new picnic appropriate recipes. As soon as the weather gets any better we will jump to the river promenade and lay out our red picnic blanket! Last year I received this book as a birthday present and I knew it was going to be my go-to cookbook when looking for Spring seasonal recipes. This is the first one we tried. And let me tell you, it was a success.
Stockholm’s old town (Gamla Stan) was way more beautiful than we had expected. With a splendid entrance dominated by the Royal Palace, the most charming narrow side treets and old facades covered in warm colours, the medieval center of Stockholm has a wonderful fairy tale – like feeling to it.

2 degrees this morning. I mean… 2 degrees! We just can’t stand it anymore. We want sun and over 20 degrees temperatures. Is that too much to ask? Since we moved to Germany I think we have been able to wear sandals twice. Twice in four years! Obviously, that doesn’t stop us from browsing our favourite websites and shops in search for the perfect pair. Is there anything happier than two feet with bright toenails inside a pretty pair of sandals? No, there isn’t.
We love mixing bright nail polishes with neutral leather sandals and, in order to rock that look, we need this minimalistic but really nice pair of sandals by Whistles. Don’t you love them? We think they can look perfect with just about any outfit. You can dress them up with a nice little black dress or you can simple wear them with shorts (we are talking denim here, of course) and a tee.
Well, we will be visiting London soon so a stop in a Whistles branch is guaranteed… Even though we won’t be able to wear them frequently, at least we will be prepared for Summer (last year was a Friday, sigh!).
If you are a beauty addict I’m sure you’ve recognized this picture. Yes, it’s the beauty look from D&G’s last show. The makeup was flawless and exactly my favorite kind of beauty look. Juicy yet matte red lips and a good old elegant black cat eye. When I’m not slapping neutral shades all over my face, this is what I like to wear. But red lipstick is tricky. Oh yes. And I’m not talking about which shade suits you better (that problem has an easy solution: ask the girl in the counter). I’m talking about those tiny lines around your lips that insist on ruining your otherwise sophisticated and perfect bold lisptick. Those lines that your red lipstick decides to follow in an attempt to make you look like a granny. If you have 20 years you probably haven’t heard of them (unless you smoke) but beware! They are coming your way. Oh yes. I’ve been using antiageing creams since the day I turned 20, I haven’t smoked a cigarette in my whole life, I drink plenty of water and eat veggies like a maniac vegetarian. But still, they are there. Defiant.
Hello! We hope you’ve had a wonderful Easter! We are still on mini vacation and we are trying to make the most of it. Besides, on Friday we head to Berlin for The Hive Conference so this week looks pretty good! And nothing better to start the week than an old school chocolate mousse. Well, this chocolate mousse will actually improve any week, month or year. It’s pure pleasure. Creamy happiness. Airy delight. This is a real show stopper and it’s my dessert of choice if I want to make a good impression. If you follow every step you will find that it’s actually very easy to prepare.
Our first visit to Stockholm was almost perfect. I guess that the brilliant sun that shined during the whole weekend helped us seeing the city through joyful glasses. We didn’t visit all the museums, we missed a few sights and we took it extremely easy, so this is not a post about the things you must do or the places you shouldn’t miss. This is just what we loved. If you enjoy slow paced weekends, eating a lot when travelling and staring speechless in front of a beautiful sunset, then keep reading…
When we like something we stick with it. Fashionwise that can look quite boring, but we like to think that we are consistent and in tune with our lifestyle. That’s why our favorite brands appear repeatedly on this blog. We are loyal. But how not to when they show us again and again exactly what we want to wear? They seem to get us. We want wearable, discreet, polished but casual and almost monochrome. Sézane has recently presented their Spring collection and we’ve fallen for their delicate shirts, clean lines and amazing sandals. We even love a pair of golden shorts, that even if quite daring, seem like a posible statement for warmer nights. Continue reading
