Gazpacho


I have a quick version of gazpacho!

All you need:
tomato, peeled cucumber and belly pepper wedges, a couple of garlic gloves, some chili - fresh or dried, sea salt & black pepper, a hint of olive oil. Put all ingredients into a blender, and you got gaspacho in a few seconds!

Made some of my favourite gluten-free cookies to go with this cold soup. This time I added some parmesan cheese and sun-dried tomatoes into it. You can find the recipe here!




Perfect lunch for a hot day!



Very minimalist!

Il Bacio di Stile Closing Down


Sad news - Il Bacio di Stile in Budapest is closing down tomorrow!  It's sad because it's such a beautifully renovated building, and the  variety of brands there has been absolutely amazing, more than 40 luxury brands.

There simply wasn't enough paying customers, which is actually nt a surprise as there are not so many millioners in Hungary and tourists are not really coming here for luxury shopping nor do expats have that plenty of money that they could shop there on regular basis.

This luxury palace of fashion was opened on Andrassy ut in September 2013. The building was commissioned by Zsigmond Bruhl between 1880-1881. The apartment building stayed emptu for a couple of years and was declared as a historical monument.  





End of an era.

Here more pics of this beautiful store and here of its famous window displays!

Housing Fair 2015 in Vantaa: Bedroom ideas


There was not so much differences between the bedrooms at the Housing Fair 2015. Mostly they were light, rather small rooms with white & grey beddings. Blue was secondly popular colour - from dark ink to pale baby blue. Of course, a hint of pastel pink was seen, and even black with bright fuchsia, and a bedroom with bright red bedding! 

Very Scandinavian style & colour scheme.























I'm definitely for the linen bedding ones!
Did you find your favourite one?

Argan Oil In Cosmetics




Argan oil has so many benefits - perfect for skin & hair. Found these Pirkka argan oil products with low price tags at City Market in Finland. All three products - hand ceam, foot cream & face mask - are absolutely fantastic! Both hand & foot cream absorb easily and fast, and they have a light fresh scent. Having argan oil face mask as a first thing in the morning makes it so much easier to wake up. It is so refreshing, and with its cooling effect. Of course, it's perfect pick-me-up after a hard day as well.

The face mask package includes 12pc "paper mask tablets" and a mixture of argan oil & hyaluronic acid. Shake well the bottle, open one of the small mask tablets, pour some of the mixture into this small tablet "cup". Let it absorb and open the "paper" mask carefully, place it on your face and leave it for 10mins. 

The argan oil mixture can be used as a toner, too. 










Feels good!

Housing Fair 2015 in Vantaa: Designer 151


House #11 is beautifully decorated with loads of crispy whites, neutral greys & sophisticated colours such as salmon pink. Small amount of deep charcoal grey sharpens the soft atmosphere. 

Cosy & harmonious combination!






The interior was designed by Mikko Toppala.

Chrome Nails


Couldn't resist this matt chrome nail polish by Gina Tricot. Interesting dark but somehow pale shade of lila. I have tried similar type of matt polish by Sephora before, but it didn't last nice more than a day... This is already third day and it's still pretty neat and fresh looking.
