Music of the day



This time it's from Gorillaz whom I had the pleasure to watch play live for the first time last week:) They were remarkably good, the setlist was such a surprise and in perfect flow..no wonder why I've been a huge fan of this guy from the very beginning of his carreer-the man is geniuuusss

They played songs off of all their albums, played Some kind of Nature/the collab with Lou Reed, for the first time in seven years, had many guest appearances (Peven Everett, you're out of this planet!) AND played Busted & Blue live which was a huge surprise to me, but apparently it is everyone's favorite (who would have thought?)

I absolutely love this song-probably my favorite of the latest album which album by the way I simply adore more and more every time I listen to it-

This is Atlanta's setlist c/o @Chaos.Archon:


..and some photos c/o Taste area for your sake:)

Current wishlist: Rosegal


When the Rosegal team approached me and asked me to a create an item wishlist coming from their online shop, I knew it wouldn't be an easy job only because there were literally so many things to choose from, all at great prices.

I really love their vintage wear selections especially those of the retro inspired dresses. This one is one of my favorites. Loving this plaid bowknot, too. I would totally fill my closet with a collection of vintage style dresses to add my wardrobe a "coming from another era" vibe:) Definitely my thing.

Also my thing: these items pictured above. Current Rosegal obsessions. I mean look at this cropped top! Or this faux fur hat..

Browse on!

Best margarita recipe


I just found the perfect margarita recipe you guys! So, if you love margaritas or if you love Taco Tuesdays accompanied by a good margarita or if you just want a new cocktail recipe to try out, it is here for you to share:)


Margarita

ice cubes
3 oz tequila, (I use Cazadores blanco tequila which I love)
2 oz freshly squeezed lime juice
1 oz simple syrup
1 tablespoon lime-salt-sugar

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add tequila, lime juice, Simple Syrup. Cover and shake until mixed and chilled, about 30 seconds. (In general, the drink is ready by the time the shaker mists up.) Place Lime-salt-sugar on a plate. Press the rim of a chilled rocks or wine glass into the mixture to rim the edge. Strain margarita into the glass.

*Simple Syrup

1 cup sugar
1 cup water

Put the sugar and water in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring, until the sugar dissolves. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 1 month. 

*Lime-salt-sugar

zest of 1 lime
2 tablespoons kosher salt
2 tablespoons sugar

Blend together lime, salt and sugar in a small blender or mini food chopper.

Tip: Remember to strain margarita into the glass:) no need to put the ice cubes in or it will become watery and it will ruin the whole taste

Cheers!

      Spot on project: I wanna live with my friends


      So this is the coolest thing these best friends guys did: they wanted so badly to live in the same neighborhood so they found the desired land they wanted to live in, bought it and then they built tiny houses in it. Their project is called "Llano exit strategy" and it consists of 400sq ft "modern meets rustic"style houses, are environmental and budget friendly and were designed with the Texas weather in mind.

      Best friends living together: you can't go wrong with that:)

      The most perfect digital invites



      These last days is all about making plans for our youngest kiddo's 6th birthday, which by the way coincides with Halloween time(!)-that's indeed the perfect combo to a kid's celebration, don't you think? We usually go with online invites, we find it easier, less time consuming and most of all ecological. So, I've been searching for online invitations with that extra "je ne sais quoi" to send to his friends & families. When I was asked to try the Paperless Post digital services I knew what my final choice would be for little P's birthday:)



      There is a huge selection of invitations to choose from, covering entertaining themes for every occasion and most importantly you can customize your selections with different colors, fonts, logos or even put your own photo to make it more personal. I like it when you can be a bit more creative and make it your own:) The customization section is such an easy process and you can actually change from the backdrop of the card to the color of the envelope and its liner patterns, even the stamp and postmark itself(!)

      The illustrations are the coolest and they cover every style from minimal designs to more fine art themes, depending on your moods :)

      You can also find numerous designer collection cards which are fantastic! Ashkahn, Mary Katrantzou, Rifle Paper Co, Kate Spade, Marimekko and The Indigo Bunting are some of my very favorites.

      Little P. is most probably going to go with one of the cutest Halloween theme related cards for his birthday invites, one with which we dearly fell in love, from one of our favorites: Rifle Paper Co.

      Add your favorite cards to your Paperless Post box and further experiment with coloring and backdrops so as to give the card a bit of a boost and match it to your personal style and needs :) This is one of my attempts to make one of our favorites pop..


      *this post was published in partnership with Anagram Interactive

      I mean..how much cuteness can fit in a card?

      Make sure to check them out :)
