mmm… Monday! Butter biscuits

10 Nov

butter_biscuits_3Autumn is officially baking season and since I’ve been quite obsessed with biscuits lately, yesterday I decided to spent the morning baking some nice classic butter biscuits. There’s nothing better than a sunny cold Sunday morning in the kitchen. Well, maybe a sunny cold Sunday afternoon on your sofa with a blanket, a cup of coffee and some one bite butter biscuits.

Weekend style icons: Lisa

7 Nov

jaSo this weekly section has turned out to be one of your favourites. We actually really enjoy preparing these posts every week because while doing so, we have discovered amazing, talented (and sometimes very young) ladies. And now we always know what to wear on Saturdays. That was the point, actually. Anyway, one of our more recent discoveries has been this girl. She has an amazing style and killer hair. At first we thought she was one of those scandi beauties, but it turns out she comes from Canada! You can find her blog here.

Schloss Heidelberg

6 Nov

Heidelberg_Castle_20When tourist visit Heidelberg castle they expect a dark medieval dungeon, but they are welcomed by a curious mixture of different styles that create a wonderful ensemble, which has been known as the epitome of Romanticism.  In any case, it’s the highlight of any trip to Heidelberg. Once you go up there with the funicular train you will feel transported to a magical and beautifully quiet era. The views are spectacular and just a walk through the gardens will be enough to make you fall head over heells for the place. Continue reading

We need This! Madewell et Sézane

5 Nov

mad2We hate Madewell because it only ships to USA, Canada and Japan. We feel abandoned. But we realy love their clothes. Specially this season. They have collaborated with the French brand Sèzane to create a beautiful collection inspired by Paris street life, with a touch of sexy tomboy attitude and the right amount of casual American vibes. The result is an understated mix between Paris and New York.

Moodboard: Japan

4 Nov

Moodboard_Japan_2Do you remember this post? Well, since that day we have been thinking about Japan a lot. Four years ago we planned a month long trip to Japan: we were going to start in Tokyo and we were going to end our trip in Okinawa. We were really excited. But our life changed drastically and we had to move to Germany. So our Japanese adventure was cancelled. Moodboard_Japan_1But our desire to visit Japan is as strong as ever. I’ve only been there once and it was a work related thing so I didn’t have enough time to enjoy the experience. Should we take the plunge and pick our plans up from where we left them?

PS. Since some of you have asked, all our beautiful moodboards are made by Pilar Fernández.

mmm… Monday! Torta rustica

3 Nov

torta_4This is good old comfort food Italian style. Full of flavours, full of cheese, full of deliciousness. Though best consumed warm, it would be a great Autumn picnic treat. Should we get started? Continue reading

We need this! Max Mara coats

29 Oct

MaxMara - CancanA couple of weeks ago we made a terrible mistake. We spent an hour in the Max Mara shop in Hamburg. Bad. Very bad. We were looking for our beloved Rialto Coat, you know, just for fun. We wanted to try it on, secretly hoping it wouldn’t fit because, frankly, i’ts quite expensive. But a whole new world of exquisite coats appeared in front of our eyes. Delightfully soft fabrics, flawless cuts, superb yet sober design… Lots of coats to add to our wish lists. See? Bad, very very bad idea. Continue reading
