3-Minute Mug Cake


Ok, normally I only consider something 'a cake' when it's baked in an oven, but today I’m going to break that rule - for a very good reason!

See, this mug sponge cake takes 3 minutes to make - using just a microwave - and when topped with yogurt and fruits, it makes for the most indulging after-dinner-solo-night-in dessert. Balazs has been working late most nights this week, so I’ve been enjoying this new found treat to the fullest.

Here is the easy how-to. Go on, don't fight it, just make it tonight...You know you want to:)

P.S: Or maybe you're in the mood for a chocolate mousse instead?
P.P.S: Also, have you tried rosemary coffee yet?

Nifty Manicure Tip

Wednesday, August 24, 2016

Ha! Fancy a great little tip for hardening your nail polish in a jiffy? After you paint your nails, wait a minute or two for your lacquer to dry and then dip your fingers into ice water. Yup, cold water has the power to harden freshly painted polish like nothing else, making it look beautiful. Try it!

P.S: And here is a tip to prevent your nail polish from chipping.
P.P.S: Sassy...

Home Tweak: Light Bulb Vases





I mostly use vintage jam jars, funky glass containers and pretty bottles as flower vases in my home, but lately I've been totally smitten with the idea of transforming an old light bulb into a sweet tiny bedside table vase. I just love how quirky yet understated they are. Here is a nifty little tutorial if you feel inspired to try it too.

P.S: But if you're more into something colourful, those will definitely tickle your fancy.
P.P.S: Ready for autumn? I am!

Tiny Flat in the Heart of Stockholm



Blimey, would you believe me if I told you that this stunning flat above is only about 180 square feet (17m2)? Yup, that tiny! It’s located in the heart of Stockholm and if that's not impressive enough, it also has a fully working original fireplace, wooden floors and tons of natural light! I’m a huge believer that with a bit of clever design, you can really make even the smallest space feel and look like home.

Could you live is such small space?

P.S: Love...
P.P.S: Remember this place or that one?
