Yesterday I got the surprise to receive a little parcel from my Mum and that made my day a lot better ! One thing I miss from Paris (among others) is the food ! So imagine how excited I was when I saw that she sneaked in my Starbucks tumblr, two pieces of chocolate coated chestnut cream ! It has to be one of the yummiest things I’ve ever had!
Another tradition of ours is that since I was I kid, I’ve always had an Advent calendar in December. It used to be a big sock filled with chocolates and for the past few years it’s just been a card with little pictures for each day. Even tho I’ve been living in another country for the last 4 years, she always managed to send me one, and so did she this year too !

Do you have any traditions for December before Christmas ?! 🙂

Take care,

Sick…

1526229_10153710615125344_1070749507_n

What I was dreading the most happened : I managed to get sick already, and that’s possibly the worst timing for it. Oh well at least I now have a good reason to stay in bed and pamper myself right ? First on the list is : make tea, heaps of tea, to stay hydrated. (I’ve been loving Kusmi teas lately)
Number 2 is facial masks : I’ve got a bunch of sheet masks from Korea. Besides from supplying moisture to your skin, they have this cooling effect which is perfect for times like now, when your head hurts, your sinuses feel blocked and you overall feel like ‘Rudolf the red nosed deer’.
Also I’ve been craving for pho since I woke up, I mean, what’s better comfort food than hot soup with noodle and meat ?! (I wonder if they have pho delivery here ^^) And to top everything, I’ve ordered two lipsticks from that new MAC collaboration I wrote about, a few posts ago. And that makes me happy !
One thing I don’t like about living in Hungary is that you barely get anything interesting when it comes to fashion/beauty products. Let’s face it, a lot of the brands are american and for the few you actually get here, they’re a lot more expensive. And forget about special collections, you’ll never get to see them in Budapest. So with the help of this lovely and pretty lady and my Mister Perfect, I got one shipped to the US and one to Australia ^^ (talk about being international, uh !) Now I can’t wait to receive everything 🙂

That being said, I wish you a nice day !
Bundle up and be careful to not catch a cold like me 🙂

Recipe – Egg muffin

IMG_0305

Good morning 🙂

Let’s start the week with another healthy recipe ! I’ve been on a low carb diet for a while now and I realized that I end up eating chicken for most of my lunches.. This recipe is super quick to make and is a nice alternative for a meal. Also, it’s a pretty versatile recipe since you can pretty much put whatever you’d like in it!

You’ll need :
– 4 eggs
– a pinch of salt and a bit of pepper
– vegetables (i decided to put some of those frozen mixed veggies & capsicum in it. But anything is fine : broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, zucchini, etc)

You can add :
– feta cheese
– ham (I chose to put the leftover chicken I had)
– spinach
– etc….

Just mix everything together, put it in muffin forms and let it bake in the oven for about 15mins at 185°C.
And tadaaa, here you have a healthy lunch or even breakfast or snack 🙂
Enjoy & Take care,
xoxo,  S.

If you follow me on instagram, you’ve probably seen the following picture already, but I just wanted to introduce a few of my favorites ! Starting with this hand and body cream from Victoria’s Secret. The smell, guys, THE SMELL ! It got me addicted ^^ And besides it’s super moisturizing ! I tend to always be doing something on my phone when I’m walking outside, which leaves my hand quite dry after a day out, so a good hand cream is a must have for me !

I recently got myself this lipstick from Dior called ‘Rouge Dior Baume’ which is basically what a lipstick and a lip balm would have if they made babies. Understand, nicely tinted and moisturizing, perfect for cold days, because chapped lips are a no-go !

And finally, a blush from Lancôme. I owned until now only a peach colored blush (which I love) but I’ve been looking for a pinkish and lighter blush for ages ! You know, that kind of blush that makes you look like you just came from a walk outside and it was a bit windy, something natural looking and now too overwhelming with its color. And I have to say, that one made me fall ‘in love’, as the packaging says 😉 I’ll upload pictures soon, stay tuned 🙂

What are your favorite products ?! 🙂

Take care,
xoxo, S.

Recipe – Apple Cinnamon Protein Pancakes

Capture d’écran 2014-11-20 à 14.23.52

I’ve discovered this recipe a while ago on Cassie’s blog, but I thought I’d share it with you ! It makes a wonderful breakfast or healthy snack, and it’s super easy to make.
You’ll need :
– 1/4 cup oatmeal
– 1/2 apple (chopped, I personally grate it)
– 1 whole egg
– 3 or 4 egg whites
– 1 scoop (=30gr) vanilla protein powder (I used my chocolate-hazelnut whey protein powder
– a bit of cinnamon

You’ll then just need to mix everything, pour some of it in a fry pan on medium heat and cook it on both sides until it gets slightly brown.
And it has just 342 calories, 39gr of proteins, 28gr of carbs and 7gr of fats.

Enjoy your meal 🙂 & Let me know how it turned out !
Now if you don’t mind, I’ll get back to my pancakes.
Take care.

Bohemian Bride

During my last trip to Australia, I got the chance to work with Madeleine & Jess, two adorable and talented photographers ! The girls managed to find a pretty lake in the middle of Melbourne and although it was super cold and windy that day, I have to say, it has to be one of my favorite shoots !
