Red cabbage salad

To say that we love a good salad is an understatement. They are the easiest thing to prepare if you come home late from work, they are packed with vitamins and nutrients and if you find good quality, seasonal ingredients and add the appropriate dressing, a salad can be a wonderful joy to your tastebuds. Today we wanted to share with you the salad that we’ve been having for dinner at least a couple of times this week.

Mushroom and mountain cheese toast

This weekend we’ve tried to recreate one of the delicious open faced sandwiches that we ate in September at Almanak, a fantastic restaurant in Copenhagen. We loved the combination of the mushrooms, the cheese and the garlic. So seasonal and comforting. While the result wasn’t exactly the same, it was still delicious. So here you have the recipe, if case you’d like to try it at home…

Mauve eyes

I’ve been loving mauve shades lately. They are neutral, they pair beautifully with brown eyes and they feel so Autumny. From the lighter shades to the depeest berry, I think they are just what you need for everyday looks. Oddly enough and just for once, my favorite products are from the drugstore. So I thought that we should celebrate the fact that you don’t have to spend much to get these gorgeous colour combinations! The Bourjois ColorBand duo that you can see in the picture is my go-to for Mondays,when I just can’t be bothered to use any brush. I apply them directly and blend with my fingers afterwards: Rose Fauviste for the upper lid and Mauve Baroque for the crease. They are waterproof and stay put the whole day. As I said, perfect for Mondays. Then we have another fantastic and longlasting shade from Bourjois’ Color Edition range: Petale the Glace, a light and a little bit shimmery mauve. The texture is fantastic, it goes from cream to powder, so it makes a great …

Autumn breakfast

This year I’ve received lots of presents for my birthday (I’m a lucky girl!) and one of them was this amazing cookbook. Breakfast is my favourite meal so I was more than happy to have in my hands a whole book dedicated to it! This delicious and healthy (-ish) recipe was the first one we tried but I can guarantee you it’s not going to be the last one!

Oven baked fries

Autumn 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!

Moodboard: York

We’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.

Nutella puff pastry bites

We 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.

Sézane , Autumn/Winter 2015

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.
