Current Lifestyle Books Wish List

I love seeing what my friends are reading, so I thought I’d share the books which are on my wish list as well. But not just any books but the ones which are at least somehow related to the topic of the website.  I don’t read popular literature or “chick (the word I actually hate) lit” so not sure how interesting my usual picks would be.

Here we go:

The Beauty/Style

  1. Perfumes: The Guide 2018  by Turin and Sanchez (Amazon and Amazon UK). I’ve actually had this book but lost it while moving somehow so I have to pick up a new copy, very unimpressed about it. It’s a must for anyone who wants to understand perfume better.
  2.  In Paris: 20 Women on Life in the City of Light Book  (Amazon and Amazon UK). This looks like a beautiful and inspiring book to have. While I am not into all the “influencer”  thing, I am hoping to enjoy it.

Recipe of June: Salads

This month was all about salads, which you could notice if you follow me on Pinterest. I tried not to upload my every meal on Instagram but a few did end up there #SorryNotSorry.

My favourite kind was with lettuce as a base, tomatoes,  bell pepper, cucumbers, some kind of seeds and cheese and mushrooms, grilled chicken or salmon. Usually with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

But there are so many variants and so many on my to-cook list. So, please, if you

Recipe Of The Month: September 2014

I wanted to try this recipe for months, if not years. And I am not being dramatic here 😉

People were raving about it, and I was always afraid that I may not like it, but little did I know. It is as good, as everyone says it is. So what salad am I talking about? The  already cult watermelon and feta one. I have seen  quite a few variations but decided to try the basic one:
