Cake pops!

This Sunday was the first time I have ever made cake pops and I was really looking forward to that. I bought all the ingredients, I was super excited about buying the sugary decorations and chocolate melts for the icing, imagining what perfect little pops of pleasure they are going to be in less than 24 hours. The next morning, I nearly jumped out of bed, I swear I was like a kid on Christmas morning, I scurried into the kitchen, waited for my friend to come and help me start baking.

#CosmopolitanChic Transition Looks

#CosmopolitanChic Daytime Look


When Jennifer from Vegas.com approached me with an idea of doing transitional looks for one day stay in the Sin City, I jumped at the opportunity. One day and one night at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas, who wouldn't go a bit wild an splurge? Now, you only have to look the part:) Here are two looks that I've come up with:

The French Interiors

I thought about it for a long time and decided to write a post about the French interiors that I saw in Paris, it's where I draw my inspiration from and I really wanted to share this with you. I love pouring over pages of interior design magazines, such as Art & Decoration, HOME, ELLE Decor, etc. It gives me so many ideas on how to decorate my own apartment, which is a total work in progress, after almost two years, my books are still on the floor of my living room. Oh well... 

Our home reflects our state of mind; how we perceive the world and how we see ourselves in it; and I honestly believe that every apartment, even the smallest, dingiest, one-bedroom apartment has the potential to be turned into a welcoming warm nest. How? Follow these simple steps.
 1. Go crazy with a bold color, such as red, on the walls, and then tone all the pieces of furniture down with whites, beiges, silvers, etc. (The sheep are optional:)

How to Survive in a Slasher Movie


Aren’t you tired of the same old clichĂ©s in slasher movies? How the virgins never die and sluts get chopped into pieces? How people in a group always split up and thus making it easier for the psycho-freaky Jason to get them, one by one? Sounds familiar?

This post is all about survival. So step aside, Bear Grylls, Soul Fishing is taking over.

Here is slasher movie survival one-on-one:

How not to go Broke in Palmanova


If you’re from Italy, Slovenia, Austria or Croatia, you must have heard of Palmanova Village Outlet. If not, let me explain in a nutshell – it’s basically a shopping village, with sales all year round. In short – it’s paradise.

This Sunday was my first shopping trip to Palmanova and I have to admit I wasn’t particularly excited about the whole thing since two of my closest friends said that it was nothing special. End quote. Therefore, I was expecting a big warehouse-like building with fluorescent lights and bad ventilation and cheap clothes stacked in piles and people fighting over them like pigeons over crumbs.

I am happy to say that this was one of those occasions when life pleasantly surprises you and gives you something way better than you had imagined. The ‘’village’’ was an actual mini village with detached houses, each a shop on its own, with everything your heart desires: from Lindt chocolaterie, to renowned brands, such as Baldinini, Pollini, Calvin Klein, IXOS, Pupa Makeup, I could go on and on. Like I said – it was paradise. A paradise that caused a big leakage in my wallet, which is not the first nor the last time it has happened. So, I have decided to do something about it – and to blog about this experience, hopefully preventing further faux pases for myself and for all the lost souls making a pilgrimage to Palmanova.

Here’s what you need to know. Before you splurge in Palmanova:
