Weekend Wear


The sun is shining and finally the weather is finally warming up which means less layers, less coats and lighter wraps. The other day while at Zara I grabbed this leather jacket that I had been eyeing for a while. It's perfect for the in-between season weather and can be dressed down or up easily. 
I actually bought my other leather jacket from Zara many years ago and have enjoyed it very much and have received many compliments for it so I hope this one turns out to be as good as the old one I have. Fingers crossed! 
I'm sharing a lovely recipe tomorrow, stay tuned!

Anine Bing's style


One of the features I love the most on Vogue is the Seven Days, Seven looks (or something like that) they do where they feature a nicely dressed (usually) well know lady who shares her daily looks for seven days, pretty straight forward. Vogue.es does it too and they recently featured Anine Bing. The go-to outfits of this californian based danish designer are just like the pieces of her own fashion line: effortlessly chic, I know it sounds like such a cliché but it is what it is. Neutrals, stripes, good quality pieces that can withstand the pass of time without going out of fashion in a second. Just like every woman needs in her closet.

Recipe: Double Chocolate Truffles


These little chocolate truffles are perfect as a scrumptious companion to your after lunch coffee, you know which one I mean right? Or as a small indulgence mid afternoon when you crave something sweet. Or in the middle of the night when you wake up starving and need something quick. Anyhow, these little chocolate truffles are perfect any time any moment. They are not a light treat or anything like that, I won't pretend but these are the real deal. 

Ingredients (makes about 25)

200 ml single cream
200gr dark chocolate
200gr milk chocolate 
70 gr chocolate sprinkles

Instructions

Cut your chocolate in small pieces and melt in the microwave or over bain-marie. Stir so it doesn't stick in the pan. Once well melted add the cream and continue stirring until all is well mixed together. 
Place in a bowl and in the fridge for about 2 hours, make sure your mixture doesn't solidify completely, you want to be able to make little balls with your hands. 
Take the chocolate mixture off the fridge and make little balls with your hands, roll them though the sprinkles and cover them thoroughly. Save in the fridge and enjoy as you please. Or put some in a little box and gift them with a little bow.

Weekend Wear


Another Monday has arrived lovelies, I hope you had a great first weekend of Spring. Here in Barcelona we didn't really feel it as is but I'm sure we will have a lovely basking sunshine pretty soon, it happens every year!
Anyhow, I for once got my all-white coat out, I love the oversized shape and that it is 50% wool so it's pretty warm still. I wear it with my daily uniform, jeans, sweater and biker boots, a big chunky scarf and a big bag, how predictable have I become ;-)
Yesterday I went to see with my little goddaughter, her sister and their mum, Cinderella and oh my how cute is it! I truly recommend it, it's obviously a fairytale story/movie so expect lots fairy dust, tulle gowns, tinny waists (I know!!), mouses that turn into horses and so on but it is definitely a nice way to spend a couple of hours especially if you have kids around you (or feel like a young princess yourself, I know I do sometimes!)

Ideal Closet


This bright yellow sweater could cheer up pretty much anyone at any moment don't you think? I think bright colours are absolutely fantastic and can make a simple outfit stand up alone at any rate. This rather simple combo of jeans, sweater and trainers is immediately lifted up by the brightness of the sweater and the cute/fun accessories, this Ralph Lauren bucket bag is just on trend and the blue colour makes it a bold choice. Pick your accessories carefully, they can make or break.

Recipe: Baguette french toast with plums


I love french toast, love love love it! I could eat it daily if it wasn't because well you know it wouldn't be a healthy everyday option for breakfast! But once in a while I do like indulging and give myself a treat. This time I made the all time classic version, I have shared a few other recipes (with figs and brie and with nutella) but this one is BY FAR my fave! Simple and scrumptious. I used baguette bread and used prunes and maple syrup and oh my the combination was above anything else. SO delicious!

Ingredients
(for 2)

Half baguette cut in 1 inches slices
3 eggs
1 cup of milk
3 tbsp sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
Confectionary sugar for dusting
Maple syrup

 Instructions

Slice your bread. Mix the eggs, add the milk, sugar, cinnamon. Place your bread and let it soak thoroughly. You can leave it for a few minutes while you put some olive oil on a frying pan and heat it over medium heat. 
Place your bread in the hot skillet and cook for few minutes on each side until nicely golden. Serve with any fruit you like, confectionary sugar and maple syrup.
