The 'It' Summer Uniform

Tuesday, May 30, 2017

Do you often dream about wearing a breezy white summer dress on a random Tuesday, but when you put it on, it feels a bit too 'dressy' or uncomfortable? Well, here is a great tip to make even the most elegant white dress look super casual: wear it with a jean jacket and a pair of sneakers or summer sandals.

It's the perfect trio for a weekday summer work uniform that will make you feel amazing. I promise! Will you try it?

P.S: And don't forget this tweak, while you're at it:)
P.P.S: Plus, head-to-toe white summer.

Summer Style Tweak: Cross Back

Thursday, May 25, 2017

Before our trip to Spain I packed this cross back dress thinking that maybe I will wear it once, but I ended up wanting to wear it all the time. The summery back detail makes it the perfect day-to-night piece that is comfortable, wearable and pretty sassy too - without really trying too hard.

So if you fancy wearing something feminine, yet totally understated this summer, try cross back on dresses, jumpsuits or tops. and you wont be sorry. Thoughts?

P.S: Peek-a-boo bra straps.
P.P.S: And, summer city backpacking.

Breakfast Tweak: Cloud Eggs

Wow, have you heard of cloud eggs? Supposedly, they are the new ‘it’ breakfast and being a person who loves breakfast eggs dinner-style, I am intrigued! The special thing about them is that they are made by separating egg whites from the yolk and whipping them until they're a fluffy. After which the yolk is put on top of each 'cloud' and the whole thing is shoved into an oven for about 10 minutes. Sounds delicious, doesn't it?

Here is a great how-to, plus a curry-bread twist on it. Yum!

P.S: Fancy more...?
P.P.S: Plus, this egg-cellent fix.

Back Home

Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Hello there! We got back home (really) late last night - all happy, all relaxed and ready for the week ahead. It goes without saying that I missed you tons but it was so nice to disconnect for a bit and just 'be'. So today's plan is to catch up on sleep, unpack, answer (some urgent) emails, start on laundry (because we are out of clothes) and buy some coffee (because you know, no sleep last night), and I will be back to regular form and schedule tomorrow morning. See you!

Psst: the photo above is of the most beautiful tree just a walk from the place we stayed in Spain.

Natural Beauty: Crystal Deodorant

Speaking of natural everyday beauty, did you know that a mineral salt crystal is a very effective natural deodorant that actually works? Till last week I had no idea, but thanks to my friend Eliza, now I am a proud owner of a crystal salt bar! If you apply it directly after a shower (on your squeaky clean skin) it prevents the forming of the bacteria that causes odor on the skin, and it works for up to 24 hours. Not to mention that it lasts forever and allows your underarms to breathe…

What do you think, would you try it? What is your experience with natural deodorants?

P.S: Remember this?
P.P.S: Plus, 9 awesome takes on homemade natural beauty.

How Danny DeVito Eats An Egg (Broadway Style)

Here is something to make your Monday morning jolly!

This past March, Danny DeVito made his Broadway debut in a production of Arthur Miller’s 'The Price'. Part of his role is that every single night he must peel and eat a hard-boiled egg while still delivering his lines clearly and without choking. As you can imagine, it's a tricky task :) So recently, the Times' theater section released this hilarious little video above, in which Danny exactly demonstrates how he does just that, like a true pro he is:)

It made my day!

P.S: Speaking of eggs...
P.P.S: Drake on cake.
