Hi loves and fellow foodies

I’ve been MIA for the last couple of months but I’m ready for my revival.

It has been a beautiful past weekend in Zurich with lovely people and a weather so perfect you could almost think we’re somewhere more south. There is a thing about this city I live in. It happens not to be my favorite city in the world, to express it mildly. But Zurich gets very wonderful in summer (that’s those 7 days a year when the sun is shining) and this weekend was especially astonishing since we celebrated the 3rd Street Food Festival and the weather couldn’t have been better for this event.

With over 100 food stands it was a true rah-rah rally but also bittersweet. Imagine yourself standing there, amidst this crowd, trying to decide what to eat when all you really wanna do is stick your face in everything you see.

But I pulled myself together and went for a “Surf & Turf Burger” and decided to rather turf than surf.  Call me a wimp but I didn’t wanna take the risk and have seafood at a Street Food Festival, therefore I feel super healthy now so thanks to my sanity.

The burger went amazing with some “Dutch Fries” from another stand and we finished the night with some “Churros”.

This festival is some piece of news in this sometimes gloomy city and I can’t wait for the next one!

Have a beautiful day.

Just be Epic…and Sh*t

You have no clue how much crap I had to take for these shoes…from my very own friends. But it’s alright, they can, because I love them and because I know deep inside they feel the same way about these shoes as me. They’re a lot, I get that. And that’s probably why I fell in love with them immediately when I first saw them on Rihanna.  They will step the most simple outfit up a notch and will look great with denim shorts and a white sweater or shirt. You can wear them with an all black outfit or dress and you’ll still stand out from the crowd. That’s what I love about them, even with the most boring and thoughtless outfit, they’ll save your night..or day, because why not show them off at daylight?

About punctuation

DSC_2062_uneditedDSC_2082_uneditedI love the color grey on clothes but it can quickly look dull and not-so-exciting and we don’t want that do we. I believe in puncuating a look with a bright and bold color. Add some color with a flashy pair of heels or even just a lively lipstick. Go for a pink or orange lip and let it do the magic.

Hi lovlies

This wasn’t my first time at Rivabella Restaurant and I loved it since the very first time I came here. The location in West Hollywood is super amazing (right above Sunset Strip and minutes away from Bootsy Bellows Nightclub where you can go rub shoulders with Ed Westwick real quick after dinner).

What really makes this place so unique is the interior decoration. It’s an Italian restaurant with a Tuscan flair, beautiful trees and lots of green surroundings inside. You’ll feel like sitting in an conservatory at your house in Italy. This must be how George Clooney feels. I get it now, George.

The Antipasti were amazing and really did it more for me than the Entrees. I love it here best over lunch when you can see all the details of the Restaurant. I wanna be honest, I love coming to Rivabella not so much for the food but for the atmosphere because it gives you such a calm and peaceful feeling. I’d call it “Girl meets Provence”, if that makes any sense!

Have a beautiful day! xx

Hi loves

I’ve seen so many celebs walk into this place so I wanted to see for myself how good it really is and if it’s worth the hype. So let me tell you all, the hype is real! It’s a rather small Cafe and not too crowded plus you’ll get a table right away. It’s such a lovely and charming place to just sit and have breakfast or coffee or to go to town on whatever you want (the menu has quite the impressive selection!). We loved it a lot so we kept coming back.

The food is GREAT and the prices are very appropriate. I really recommend it guys. Oh and does anyone remember Jasper from “The Holiday”? Yeah no that’s what I thought, but we saw him here so that makes this place kinda officially cool because the movie is awesome!

Have a beautiful day. X

Hello loves

One of the first days out in Los Angeles and I already got a sunburn! What should I say, I got it from my mama, I shall not be mad. At least I got some color.

Pre-Dinner hangout on our beautiful terrace in ‘da Hills wearing a white ZARA crop top with a blue ZARA skirt which reminded me of last seasons burberry skirts, a whole lot cheaper of course. The shoes are strappy silver watersnake Christian Louboutin’s.

Hair blowout by DryBar in West Hollywood. I LOVE them. They’re located on Sunset Blvd. and have a flat fee of $40 for any blowout style, yay! I’m very lazy with my hair (especially when on vacation) so this is the perfect place.

My very long but beautiful nails done by “esNAIL” on Melrose (I love them, too!). But I quickly realised I can’t function with this nail length anymore. I guess “I’m too old for this shit.”

Have the most beautiful day. xX

Ahi Tuna Tartar
Sushi grade tuna with avocado and kimchee lime sauce. And it all comes with artisane sesame chips. The interesting part is this berry though. You eat it afterwards, it neutralizes the taste of fish. I really don’t know the name of this berry, so please let me know if you do!

I’m so late with this post but still it needs to happen and it really doesn’t matter that Miami was 2 months ago, I’m still dreaming about it.

I’m dedicating todays post to another first for me in Miami. Firstly, I’ve had the second best tuna tartar in my life at this place! (The best was in Mallorca and I won’t ever forget it because you just can not outdo it, I dare you.)

Bâoli officially made it on my favorite restaurant list and that’s no easy accomplishment. If there’s anything I’m good at, it’s all things food. This one truly deserves a place on my list. Not only is the food delicious but it’s just a stunning restaurant and establishment in general. You can sit outside and feel like you’re in a petite jungle and I really enjoyed this piece of faux nature 🙂
