Two-Ingredient Mango Pudding

Since mangoes are in season right now, here is a super easy dessert that will blow your mind and transform even the most mundane evening into a tropical dream. The best bit is, it takes only 2 ingredients  to create this bowl of goodness - a fresh mango and a bit of coconut cream. The only thing is, the cream must be chilled. Here is the full how-to.

P.S: Also, how to peel them and cut them.
P.P.S: Plus, this delicious iced green mango tea.

Spring Hair Refresh

Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Did you know that green tea is the perfect spring-hair-refresh remedy?

Till recently, I was clueless about it, but then I stumbled upon Deborah’s super nifty Matcha hair mask and I finally experienced what a true gem it really is! I used this mask twice already and I love how a simple mix of Matcha green tea powder combined with an egg and coconut oil makes my hair look all fresh, healthy and shiny.

Here is the full how-to if you fancy giving it a go too. Go on, don't be shy:)...

P.S: And something for your skin...
P.P.S: Fancy more?

Spring Trend: White Shirt Dress







Would you wear a shirt dress this spring or summer?

According to ELLE, a simple white shirt dress makes for the ideal spring/summer work-wear. Its simplicity and clean-cut vibe will make you look professional and put together, while feeling comfortable and breezy at the same time. Here are a few that tickle my fancy right now: this classic number, that sleeveless beauty and this one is pretty special as well.

I'm a fan. You?

P.S: Fancy more?
P.P.S: Head-to-toe white summer.

Portraits Of What You Love











What are you passionate about?

Pamela Hachem is the brilliant photographer from Beirut, Lebanon who has an ongoing series of unconventional portraits that I love! The idea behind is simple: instead of capturing a photo of a person's face, she snaps a portrait of their passion instead. Brilliantly quirky, don't you think?

P.S: Remember these or those?
P.P.S: Persona...

Try Something New

Monday, April 24, 2017

Fancy a little spring challenge? A couple of weeks ago while sitting in the dentist's office, I anxiously flipped through a bunch of women's magazines to calm my nerves. Yes, the sounds and the smells in dental offices freak me out! Anyway, after a few minutes I realized there was an reoccurring theme running in most of those publications of asking readers to embrace the unknown this year and try new things.

Supposedly, in today's culture of immaculately planned out lives, we tend to develop a structured routine out of comfort and safety that doesn't involve us getting outside of our comfort zone. Most people don't even bother trying new things, because they believe it will end up being a disappointment.

Yet, psychologists argue that life without experiencing new feelings is not fulfilling enough, and if we give it a chance, we'll benefit immensely by allowing our minds to expand and learn more about ourselves. Also, according to Rich Walker, people who engage in a variety of experiences are more likely to retain positive emotions and minimize negative ones then people who have fewer experiences.

Of course, the concept of a 'new thing' differs depending on who you are. The bottom line is our personal eco-system needs an occasional push, a little discomfort and the feel of a thrill that will unleash those rarely felt emotions while allowing us to discover a side of ourselves we didn’t know existed.

So, how about this season every one of us will try one new thing. It can be anything, for example, I'm going to sign up for a sculpture class. Are you game?

P.S: A life of intention.
P.P.S: Ready or not?

Spring Asparagus Grilled Cheese




Hey, I missed you tons and I'm so pleased to be back to regular schedule. How was everyone's weekend? Ours was deliciously springy, thanks to Jessica's asparagus grilled cheese with Dijon and brown butter. We had it last night on our balcony with a glass of wine and it was so good that I'm planning to make some more of it today for lunch. So if you fancy some seasonal comfort food, look no further...

P.S: Fancy a little asparagus trick?
P.P.S: Plus, my favourite dolce far niente bowl of goodness.

Weekend Jollies

Thursday, April 20, 2017

Yes, I'm signing out this week earlier for a really good reason - today Balazs and I celebrate our 15th anniversary! Yup, it still blows my mind to think it has been ages since we met. Honestly, I couldn't ask for a better partner in crime. He gets me, I get him and we both do our best thinking over a cup of coffee and an overly sweet pastry.

Anyway, we are taking a 4-day staycation to do all the little things we never have time for normally. Wishing everyone a jolly good almost-weekend and I'll see you back here on Monday morning - back to normal schedule - but before you go, here is a bunch of awesome things to read and explore. Cheers!
