Piece of art - Shourouk !

The baroque styled chunky pieces are each a piece of art in their own right, and with Shourouk’s motto of ‘luxury and decadence’ woman of all ages are lining up to swoop one around the necks.
Fantastic and unique mixing jewelry , combining Swarovski crystals, sequins and colorful gems, classic and modern at the same time, are nothing but the beath taking.What I admire and crave the most are the luxury PVC bags. The way that the designer has made a fine combination between jewelry and pvc to create a unique bag is undeniably admirable.
Her extravagant designs got me going crazy for a while now and I couldn’t help but to explore her world in more depth. Dive in with me…

It´s all about the shoes!

The show outside of the shows is here to stay and one thing that has become evidently clear from the street style parade is that more is more!
I  could not keep my eyes off the  footwear spotted at NYFW,MFW and LFW.Shoes, with layered,
color-blocked leather, heels covered in pyramid, mix of materials and textures made them especially refreshingly distinctive and delightfully bold! Not easy to wear, but so special!
So, from the very practical (like a pair of flower print Nikes) to those who braved the shows (and the snow!) with open-toes, get all the shoe-stalking highlights right here.

Evening gatherings

Food is fundamental to life, we all know that. Yet, our eating habits have become incredibly complex, involving many aspects of daily life far beyond addressing simple nutritional needs.In our house we always appreciated a good foodFrom my mother I inherited a love for food, and with my husband I have learned how to cook.
What do we expect when a woman cooks compared to when a man is cooking? Men use many techniques and have bold, creative dishes. Women make homey, nurturing, and soulful. At least it is so with us!
Last night we had dinner with friends.Igor has been in charge of the appetizer and main course, and dessert- for me.Appetizers at our house are usually cold, and in many cases raw.So last night we had smoked and fresh tuna carpaccio,and later grilled sea shark meat on sticks rolled in bacon , and rice with almonds and pine nuts.He also made a sauce of mascarpone cheese and dijon mustard with herbs. It perfectly matches with fish. Just like small red peppers stuffed with cheese.For dessert I made ginger biscuits with nuts, lime curd, raspberries, and mascarpone cream with vanilla taste and grated 75% dark chocolate. I love the evening gatherings around the table with a glass of good wine, good music,and  good vibe.The table and food together create cherished memories, and it is my pleasure to cook for the people we love! I wish you all plasant weekend and share at least one meal with your dear ones!

With love
