christmas_photodiary_15This week has been hard. We miss Spain. Sigh! But thinking about our last holidays we have realised that during the last four years we have created our very own, touristy Spanish traditions… Continue reading

Cinnamon Rolls

22 Dec

cinnamon rolls_6I’ve always been afraid of baking cinnamon rolls. I know, it’s stupid, but I always thought it was something complicated, sticky and doomed to failure. But it turned out to be quite easy! While I still want to improve the recipe and I know I need more practise, I was quite happy with the result. Continue reading for a foolproof cinnamon roll recipe!

Let the festivities begin!

19 Dec

holidaysThe Christmas season has well and truly arrived and therefore we are packing our suitcases (last minute, obviously) and heading to Spain tomorrow. We’ve already planned lots of meetings with friends and family and we just can’t wait. We won’t forget the blog, though. We will change our routine a little bit during the next days, but expect at least three post per week.  You can also follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for daily updates. You know the drill: lots of pictures of food, nice places, pretty landscapes and the occasional ootd ;)

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

This Christmas…

18 Dec

parisWe would love to…

Have cup of hot chocolate in Angelina Paris and then go for a long afternoon walk in Montmartre.

Skate along the frozen Dutch canals in Kinderdijk.

Experience an authentic Winter wonderland dream in Putevny, Czech Republic.

Indulge to high tea in London (at the Claridge’s, if posible).

Ski in Switzerland (that means watch other people skiing while we sip a hot chocolate mocktail in a cosy wooden cabin).

Wander through the almost deserted alleys in Venice.

Observe the Northern lights in Lapland.

Go Christmas shopping in Copenhagen.

Take my mum to Scotland for a whiskey tasting.

Visit all the traditional cafes in Vienna and eat lots of Dobos Torte…

or escape from the cold weather and head to the Canary Islands.

A girl can dream! Do you have any travel dreams for this Christmas?

The Christmas on the sofa edit

17 Dec

Pijamas
So, we’ve shared with you some beautiful party dresses and the sexiest shoes to get you ready for your Christmas parties. But since we have no social live and we love the granny lifestyle, today we want to show you a more accurate version of our holiday wardrobe:

1. A fluffly soft robe. This is essential to keep you warm and hide your I’ve had chocolate for breakfast belly.

2. We need this tee. Just because we are addicted to Instagram. (By the way, follow us here).

3. A natural remedy to get a better sleep. Because after spending ten hours on the sofa, the bed doesn’t look that appealing.

4. JCrew flannel pajamas. The tartan version is also on our wishlist. Have you heard, Santa????

5. The perfect lounge pants. Relaxed, soft, baggy… plus elasticated waistband.

6. A cute pair of slippers. Shoes are key in every outfit. Always.

7. The best candle for a Christmassy atmosphere. It does count as an accessory.

8. And more cute slippers because we couldn’t choose just one pair.

Moodboard: Lapland

9 Dec

Moodboard_Lapland_1I’m sure you were expecting this moodboard. If you have checked our blog lately you must have seen lots of Christmas posts. Well, our Moodboard section is also impregnated with the Christmassy mood!! But who hasn’t dreamed about Christmas trip to Lapland? For me, it’s one of those things you have to do at least once in your life. At Christmas, of course. While it would be the perfect surprise for any kid, I’m sure it could be equally amazing for adults. Snow, dogs reindeers and Santa.  Cabins, sauna and cocktails by the fire. Woods, nature and freezing cold. That’s how every Christmas should look like!

Moodboard_Lapland_2What about you? Any Christmas trips on your bucket list?

Christmas milk punch

8 Dec

Christmas_Punch_3After three very busy weekends, we finally got to spend a nice peaceful weekend at home. We wanted to light candles, watch House of Cards and eat tons of chocolate. Not only did we do all that, but we also tried a new cocktail recipe. It was creamy, sweet and Christmassy. Just what we needed to curl up under the blanket and relax.

Family holidays

4 Dec

2080c8c261970badad2b9301b4d02e7bChristmas means family gatherings and let’s face it: as much as we love our families, they could be difficult sometimes (to say the least). Coping with family stress is one of the most usual problems during the holiday season, so why not go on a little Christmas adventure? A different environment may help and, well, if you have an argument with your mother/ father/ aunt/ cousin/ brother, you can always go for a walk afterwards and discover a new place!

DIY Christmas Cards

3 Dec

christmas_cards_2014_10It’s that time of the year again: Christmas card DIY!!! Last year you really liked our Christmas cards so we thought: why not share again the easiest DIY ever? I’m not particularly crafty. In fact, I’m quite clumsy but every year, one afternoon at the end of November, I play Christmas carols and make our Christmas cards. I’d say that’s one of my favorite moments of the year. It’s not a secret: I love Christmas! And this is the only time of the year when I feel like using washi tape and that makes me feel connected with the world. Seriously, what other use can you give to washi tape?
