This is such a great option if you are sort of things in your pantry and you are craving for something sweet for your tooth;) So I came up with this idea of creating a profiterole with only three ingredients and believe me you won't be disappointed. You only need:
1 box of cream puffs (from the freezers dept, I used these)
some kind of dark or semi-sweet chocolate
milk or whipping cream
1 tbs honey
Put the cream puffs in a large bowl, melt completely the chocolate in a pan with the milk/whipping cream and the honey till it forms a nice ganache texture and then drizzle it all over the cream puffs (you decide the portion of melted chocolate you want to put on top of the puffs). Finally, sprinkle a handful of almond flakes to give it that extra crunchy texture.
Dig in and enjoy!
p.s. You can also whip some cream and add some on top! (I had literally run out of that!)
Located in London, in one of its finest hotels, this place is definitely one to transfer you back in time. I love the decor, the velvets and the antiques that give it that sense of elegance of the '20s and '30s..Sipping down one (or two or three) of their Golden Age crafted cocktails this venue is one to not surpass.

This is such a beautiful collection by Serbian-born, London-based designer Roksanda. Love the retro feeling, the colors along with the artful silhouettes. Though the romantic maxi gowns with these bits of shine have set to be creating one of my favorite outfits as of lately.
..for a cup of coffee in this Milanese cafe and let me absorb some of the atmosphere of the Italian 1950s and 1960s pop culture and aesthetics..How cool are these formica furniture? They definitely have me!
All these and more at Bar Luce which is located in Fondazione Prada, designed by the impeccable Wes Anderson.
I recently stumbled upon this brand from Montreal and was amazed with their collections, especially when I then discovered they are all made from recycled materials. I love it. All Matt & Natt products are created using their signature vegan leathers and recycled materials such as nylon, cork and rubber. The results are fantastic. Check them out! I am definitely going for the Hope collection crossbody bag, which if you purchase, 100% of the purchase price goes to a charity of your choosing! H-o-w cool is that?
I'd love to visit this place when in London..

Huge fan of thick noodles, I recently found these frozen ones which are really easy to prepare, their texture is chewy which I love and compared with this recipe form another word for comfort food in my "easy and delish" taste room.
Sanukiya udon with shrimp and vegetables
3 packets of sanukiya udon noodles (package contains 5)
150-200 gr shrimp
medley of peppers, sliced
half onion, sliced
1 zucchini, cut in cubes
3-4 spring onions
1/2 cup cashews
4 tbs soy sauce
1 tbs honey
1 tbs red wine
1 tbs white wine vinegar or rice vinegar
olive oil or sesame oil
1 Jalapeno sliced, optional
Heat a non-stick pan (even better a wok pan) with oil and throw the zucchini cubes, onion and pepper slices in. Cook until they soften. Meanwhile boil water in another pan and throw the noodles in. They only need a minute or two. Add the shrimp in with the cooked vegetables and another minute or two till they become pink. Add the soy sauce, honey, red wine, vinegar and cashews and let it simmer for a bit. Finally add the noodles and give it a good toss. You want the noodles to be covered with this yummy sauce it's now created. Serve in small bowls, top it off with some sliced spring onions and dig in!
For those on the spicy side, add sliced jalapenos on top for an extra kick! Enjoy!
How beautiful are these ceramics? I have a thing with perfectly imperfect ceramics, you know the ones that are never the perfect circle or oval but for you they are because that imperfection is what makes them perfect? yes that's my thing..
Dorotea ceramics are (of course) handbuilt and handrawn with the prettiest patterns and each piece is one of kind. The perfect improptu gift for your loved ones, don't you think? You can shop them here :)
I've posted so many times on this blog about Josep's (Font) work for Delpozo and how I admire what he's been doing right from the very first time he appeared on the fashion scene and honestly I don't think he will ever stop amaze me.
This is -once again- remarkable creativity, no words really to describe the brilliance of the dreamy beauties he makes, simply come along and stare in awe with me-
This is Delpozo collection for FW16
