In January I’ve Loved…

January 31st  •  Posted in Favourites

Whoa, wait, is it the last day of January already? It feels like 2015 has only started yesterday! January wasn’t my favourite month, however I’m pleased to say I was able to try a lot of new things that obviously could make to my monthly favourites, and yes, this includes a lot of chocolate but also a few healthy choices that was an anchor to me for my January detox! If you’d like to read about what I was up to in January, simply check my January Highlights, otherwise let’s just jump right into my most favourite things from the last 30 days…

LINDORS ℅ LINDT

FOOD

The most exciting highlight of the month was that day when the postman came and brought a huge box full of Lindt treats! Isn’t it everyone’s dream?! I’ve always been a fan of classic Lindor Milk Truffles* but I was so pleased to finally try the delicious and indulgent Lindor Strawberry & Cream Truffles*, that are just perfect for anything Valentine’s Day related, including recipes, cozy nights in and moments of sweetness!

As for the healthier food choices, I’m quite enjoying the Clipper Green tea with Echinacea which is just my new favourite afternoon treat! Green tea is so good for our bodies but not the best flavour to me, but echinacea makes the whole thing a lot more interesting: it quite completely covers the flavour of green tea and make it tastes more citrusy and good! If you’d like to introduce green tea in your lifestyle but don’t quite enjoy the original flavour, I can’t suggest this Clipper offering enough..!

Lastly but not least on the food front is my new IKEA Produkt Milk-Frother: as you might remember I haven’t had a milk frother anymore for a long time, then I spotted this so inexpensive IKEA utensil and I just thought to give it a try. It is so good and easy to obtain a perfect foam – yes, it’s not velvety enough to experiment with latte art, but it’s just good enough to get a very nice basic latte in no time at all!

MEMORIES


It’s been a very long time since the last time we printed our pictures but it’s always my favourite parcel to unwrap, so I ordered a few other prints from the last 6 months! I love going back to those memories once again just by browsing through a few pages of our photo album – it’s just so nice to have your pictures printed instead of only digital files, you get the occasion of seeing and reliving those memories surely more often than you would if you don’t ever print them!

STYLE


On the fashion front, I can’t *not* mention my new Sugarhill Boutique Starstruck Glitter Skirt – it’s just the cutest and most flattering skirt I own at the moment, needless to say I’m wearing it a lot. It’s thick enough to wear it during this season, and obviously pairs amazingly with anything really. Something that has just joined my wardrobe recently is my new Sheinside Wine Red Sweater (similar) – I’m totally a fan of 2015 Pantone color of the year: marsala is definitely a colour I could wear all year around, but I realized I didn’t own a lot of wine red clothes in my wardrobe, so this Sheinside sweater was the perfect addition!

BEAUTY


As I’ve already told you in one of my recent posts I’m trying to stick to only coconut oil to cleanse/moisturize my skin. I had very bad skin, so it’s nice to go back to something organic and natural, and I’m quite surprised about how nicely my skin is reacting to it. It has only been a week or more, but so far I’m not going back to anything I was using before!

Best discoveries of 2014!

January 6th  •  Posted in Favourites

Now that 2014 is done and dusted and we’re all ready to welcome 2015 in, I have one last post to honor a few of the things that made my 2014 a very nice year. These are the best discoveries I’ve made the past year, that really needed to be shared: some of them are smart, other revolutionary, other just pretty damn cute, but just in case you weren’t aware of their existence, I have a small list of things you should know about!

In 2014 I’ve discovered chai latte, travelled to beautiful London and found out it’s my favourite between all the cities I’ve visited so far, tasted macarons for the first time, gone for my first ever road trip, made lots of day trips to beautiful Milan to see it flourish in every season of the year, bought pretty things, wore pretty dresses, eaten lime infused dark chocolate and a lot more chocolate, spent countless hours sipping tea of every flavour, discovered new favourite recipes and enjoyed it all until the end! It was a good year after all – it’s easy to say ‘this year was not as I wanted it to be’, it’s more difficult to see what was good about it after all!

Below you’ll find a few of the material objects I’ve discovered the past year that are definitely worth to be shared! Others that are not pictured must be: my beautiful ASOS Scallop Stitch Satchel Bag, my cozy IKEA Gurli Throw, the ingenious Interstellar and Masters of Sex and the fascinating Game of Thrones!

In November I've loved...
november favourites ;

I don’t usually spend time to talk about how the month’s gone by so quickly, but I just can’t even realize the year is practically gone and we’re now facing the last month of this 2014! Seriously, where’s time going? It feels like yesterday when I was compiling my monthly favourites list for September! And yet it was yesterday that I did it for November and today’s time to share a few favourites from last month… In November I’ve discovered a few new pretty things I can’t wait to share with you, including a lot of chocolate and a fluffy sweater, so let’s jump right into this second to last favourites post of the year!

I warned you there was going to be a lot of chocolate! This month I’ve discovered the deliciousness of lime when paired with chocolate: I’ve always been a fan of the flavour of citrus + dark chocolate (which reminds me that I have a pretty delicious biscuits recipe to share!) but I’ve actually always stuck to orange and never tried something different so this delicious Lindt Excellence Dark Lime* chocolate bar was such a nice discovery to me: the combo it’s totally fancy, dark chocolate suits so well the citrus flavour of the zest of lime – both warming and refreshing, this must be one of my favourite flavours of dark chocolate! But I have a pick for milk chocolate lovers too: I happened to be at Tiger last week and on a last minute pick before going to the cash desk, we picked up these super cute Milk Chocolate Covered Hazelnuts… and they taste like heaven! I’m such a fan of hazelnuts in my chocolate bars, but these were even cuter and surely pretty damn delicious!

On a side note, I’ve got an insane addiction to Crossy Road – oh dear, I’m not even sure it’s healthy to suggest it, but if you’re bored, have some pretty long queue and waiting to do, are stuck somewhere without other forms of entertainment, well you might want to remember of me telling this is such a good game to play at your phone! – I’m going to end it here, remember it’s your choice to take or not take the hint!

Let’s talk of homeware bits & bobs, shall we? I’ve already shown you my latest addition to my mug collection recently, however I think this beautiful and so inexpensive Ikea Enigt Mug deserves another mention over on this blog – it’s quickly become my new favourite mug and I bet you all mugs lovers can see why! I’m also pretty obsessed with the Yankee Candle Snowflake Cookie scent – this seems to be made just for me, such a beautiful sweet food-inspired scent I was sure I would have loved even before smelling it – just look at that label! I’ve picked up the Sampler Votive Candle instead of a big one just because I’ve way too many candles to burn out already, but I’m sure this will be one of the next full-size candles that will join my arsenal.

Last on the homeware front are the beautifully-made Duvet Cover Sets from H&M Home. I must admit I’ve a weakness for anything from the home section of H&M – but if there’s one thing they do well that is for sure the duvet sets’ designs (they’re all so beautiful!) and since when I tried my first one I’ve picked up two more, one for my boyfriend and this beauty for me and I can’t wait to make good use out of them all!

Lastly I must mention my November’s sweater crush, the Sugarhill Boutique Fluffy Sweater* (which you can see in action over here): it’s the softest, warmest, cosiest sweater that has ever sat in my wardrobe and such a staple for any ‘I want to wear something cute but I don’t care too much’ kind of situation!

What have you loved in November?
