Moodboard: Aspen

A year ago my two favorite cousins went to Aspen. They are Winter sports fans, so they skied and snowboarded until they had stalactites hanging from their beards, they rented a wonderful wooden cabin with an amazing minimalist interior and they had a blast. With every picture they sent us we got more and more jelous, obviously. And while we are really tempted by the old European glamour of places like Zermatt or Cortina D’Ampezzo, we can’t help but daydream about an American Winter Wonderland…

Cinnamon Rolls

I’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!

This Christmas…

We 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? Picture via Pinterest.

Roast, London

During our last London getaway we followed Rachel advice and had breakfast at Roast. After strolling around Borough Market we decided to have a second (yes, second) breakfast and we enjoyed a fantastic quiet morning overlooking the market. 

Madewell et Sézane

We 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.

Emerson Fry Fall/ Winter 2014

Emerson Fry has been on our radar for a couple of years. They make wearable, beautiful collections that create by themselves the perfect wardrobe for the working woman. And let me emphasize the word woman. Their pieces are timeless, elegant and they claim to have the best USA quality.  The cuts and the subtle details make their looks perfectly polished. Here you have our favorite looks, if you’d like to see…

Basics & classics

We all want Spring to be around the corner (check our Instagram and you’ll see a suspicious amount of flower pictures), but the truth is that we still have a couple of months of Winter left. At least in the North of Europe, where we live. That’s why I’m still thinking about adding a couple of nice and timeless pieces to my Winter wardrobe. I love trends, but I just can’t help but leaning towards basic and classic pieces. This Winter I’ve been looking for a nice camel coat and some comfortable pointy pumps to add a little bit of sobriety and temperance to my closet. They are perfect for work, they can be dressed up or down and they make you look like a million dollars. 1. Masculine camel coat by Joseph. Over the shoulders tren anyone? 2. Cashmere boyfriend sweater by JCrew. It just goes with everything. 3. The most beautiful camel coat by Max Mara. I’m in love! 4. Cute Kitten heel pumps by Zara. 5. Leo print pointy pumps by JCrew. Perfection 6. Black …

Music always helps

Only Wednesday? Oh my! This week is neverending and super tough! We are struggling both work-wise (going back to work after more than two weeks of holidays is always a nightmare) and health-wise. The flu has hitted our little home, snif! But we have to get better because next weeks we are flying to London! With this situation leaving home every morning is not easy. That is why I try to get motivated with music. It always helps, right? These are my top 3 let’s-kick-ass-(but-politely)-and-have-the-best-time-possible songs of the moment. Happy by Pharrell Williams Move in the right direction by Gossip Roar by Katy Perry None of them is the kind of song that makes you feel like Beyonce while walking to work, but they are positive and, well, basically happy songs! So if you are having a hard time lately, you should listen to them! Any other let’s-kick-ass-(but-politely)-and-have-the-best-time-possible songs I should be aware of?

Peuterey parka

Even though German weather is not being that bad this Winter, it’s still cold. Quite cold. And since we know that terrible temperatures and snow storms will get here eventually, we can’t help but look for warmer coats. I saw this parka a few months ago and I have been thinking about it… I know parkas aren’t the best solutions for terribly cold weather, but I think this one can be the exception. It’s slim cut, wooden cloth and fur trim make it perfect to keep us warm during this season. It’s called the Rumor Fur by Peuterey and you can buy it here.
