Make a wish: Infinitea terrace

10 May

I shall start this post by telling you that I love lists. I always have plenty, though they do not necessary make me more efficient. I have to do lists, to see lists, to watch, to cook … and so on!

I have decided to share with you some items on my lists. Maybe they will be inspirational for things to do for moments of pleasure.

There is this one idylic place in Bucharest that I so much want to visit: the terrace of the Infinitea tea house. I have been there a few weeks ago and there was some redecorating going on. Now it is ready and I shall save a date on my agenda for a visit. Can’t wait to sit in the sun on the terrace, drink a cold green tea, eat some cookies and read a good book or chat with my friends. Pleasure seems easy, istn’t it?

Eatclean: Salmon buns

26 Apr

I’ve been very lazy lately when it came to posts. Well, not that lazy as busy. And there were some good stuff to share and never made it. Part of it is the cooking thing I want to share with you.

I am not the best chef in town and do not pretend I want to become one. Neither the person who will cook on a regular basis. I still love to discover new places and eat out. But cooking brings me pleasure from time to time. It is indeed on my list of small things.

As we are on Friday, I will start this section of the blog by showing you an easy thing to cook for weekend brunch. Easy-peasy!

Salmon buns  (3 pieces)

3 buns

3 slices of smoked salmon

2 eggs

a few spinach leaves

grated cheese

salt&pepper

Make a hole into the buns as if you were trying to make them some hats, stuff the salmon and the spinach leaves, carefully add an egg on top of every stuffed bun and sprinkle some grated cheese, salt and pepper to taste. Voila!

Bake as long as it takes to have the eggs done and serve with green salad and orange juice. How health is that?! I mean salmon, eggs and green leaves altogether. Bon appetit!

This is for me and you not to lose hope. There are good times and times that disappoints us, people who do that. But we should get over  whatever comes up, move on and look for something good.

Have a good week!

Chose to be happy! There are so many little things around us that could bring smiles and joy: cherry blossom, sun beams, spring flowers and spring shoes to put on, time to change the clothes in your wardrobe for something lighter-they will all seem new!

Have a lovely week!

Month to share

9 Apr

It has been a full yet not out of ordinary month. The spring was supposed to be here, it is March already, but flowers were one of the few sings. The sun and warmth are yet to come.

There are many film festivals in Bucharest those days and I am happy to attend some of them: cool, not that famous movies to watch. And they go well with coffee.

On my list with little nice things to enjoy I will definitely add chandeliers. I simply love them and I was lucky to be in a building with plenty of them this month.

Plus, all the sweet pleasures in life. But this is tricky: to enjoy or not to enjoy? I am Brussels right now. You can imagine all the chocolate surrounding me! I will work out a lot when back home. It is a matter of weeks until I will be wearing the swimsuit.

How was your month? Did you enjoy all those small things happines is made of?

Have a great week!

Spring basics

31 Mar
One single sunbeam was enough to make me rethink my spring looks. When it comes to basign, I’m the man (or maybe the lady). I love basis pieces for their timelessness and versatility. I’ve probably told you before that I am not a fashionista, therefore I would not mind much wearing a classy color or one that suits me simply because it it not trendy. Being stylish is more than being  trendy, let’s face it!
A beige trench coat is a must in everyone’s closet, as much as a classy pair of pumps and one of loafers (if you insist to be trendy, pick them in burgundy).
Pick a red blazer and a colourful silk scarf to spice up your black&white business attaire. I prefer the black&white polka dots blouse to the stripped one for the girlish touch it could bring to an outfit. As for the pencil leather skirt, this is my new darling.
I hope this will prove useful for your spring looks! I am sure I have not included all the key, basis items, threfore I welcome and ideas of yours.
Have a great Sunday and a productive week!
