    THE GIFT OF IMAGINATION

    TODAY’S KIDS Having an amazing imagination is gift that keeps on giving. These days kids don’t run wild in the nature anymore and let their imagination grow and expand by doing so. Instead they are busy staring their screens like little zombies. Only time they get outside is to go to a nearest park and take 100 shots of themselves to prove it. How can I criticize like this when I’m doing the same thing myself? Because I’ve done my fair share of running around in the forests, building huts and climbing trees and let my imagination go places I physically couldn’t. Kids today haven’t. They are struggling with their…

    PLANNING A MENU

    My graduation parties are almost here, less than a week away actually! And yes, you read right, they ARE in PLURAL! The first party is an afternoon coffee reception for my family and other relatives and the second is for my friends! I’m in the midst of planning the menus for each of them. The menus are rather simple and quick to prepare, because I’m going to do them myself. Here’s what I’ve planned so far: in the first menu I’m serving my guests macarons, lemon cheesecake, layered cake with berries, salty pie and some chocolate balls. The second menu serves a rich couscous salad instead of a pie. Otherwise…

    PARIS TIPS: 5 OF MY FAVOURITE RESTAURANTS

    So, I think it’s pretty clear by now that Paris stole my heart and so did the restaurants in Paris! I was positively surprised how polite and friendly the service was and how tasty the food was! French food usually divides people to haters and lovers. And I seemed to love it, to my biggest surprise. Thus when in France, one should definitely eat at a restaurant at least once or twice even if the weather was perfect for a baguette in the park kind of picnic. French restaurants are very different starting from the athmosphere and and ending to the menu. For example I’ve never seen a menu translated…

    INSPIRATION BOARD FOR MY GRADUATION PARTY

    Cakes, champagne, flowers, candles… Here’s my inspiration board from Pinterest. My graduation party is less than a month ago. I’ve decided to have my graduation party at our house. Actually, I’m going to have my party split in two; the afternoon reception is for my family and relatives and the evening party is for our friends. I decided to do it like this because our house doesn’t fit over 40 guests at once… Plus I think it would be a nightmare to host (mainly) alone! Doing it this way, gives me a chance to enjoy my guests as well. The invitations have been sent and I have started practicing on…

    THE GINGHAM DRESS

    For me wearing a dress is the easiest way to dress. I save a lot of time putting on a dress instead of several pieces of an outfit. I mean, I love styling and taking my time with clothing, but sometimes (read: most of the times) I’m too busy to pick up fabulous outfits and come up with fresh ideas with shirts and pants. But I do sometimes struggle with what to wear, even with the dresses. When I’m having a “bad-clothing-day” I like to rely on one of my favourite dresses, which is always appropriate for work and suitable for more dressy occasions as well. It’s the gingham dress.…

    PACKING FOR A WEEKEND IN PARIS

    Yesterday was all about packing for a weekend in Paris. What to wear for a weekend stay in a sunny +11 degree (Celsius) weather? Easy, since the answer is pretty much anything! The trouble for me was to fit everything in my hand luggage… But I made it. Thanks to Pinterest! I created an inspiration board in Pinterest, which included outfit ideas to wear in Paris. Every item can be found in my closet, so all I needed was some outfit combo inspiration from Pinterest. That’s what I came up with, how do like it? I love it! It was so much easier to pack when I first visualized it…
