Foodie | Briam in a pot

So the other day I was starving and I really wasn’t in the mood for pasta again. My refrigerator was full of veggies waiting to be consumed and I decided to make something like Briam but not in the oven. Anyway, in a sense, I made Briam in a pot. 
I used potatoes, eggplants, green peppers, red onions, cherry tomatoes and zucchinis. I think that this food is all about “use whatever you have left” so I won’t get into deets about how much of each vegetable I used. For example, if you have some carrots they would work well too I think! 
In my case, I had some boiled potatoes so I used them but if I were you, I’d cook the potatoes for about 5mins  before using them. 
So, first drizzle the onions.. Then add all the veggies (diced) in the pot and let them cook over medium heat for 5mins. Add a cup of water or some sauce if you have it -I liquidized some tomatoes with olive oil, oregano, salt and pepper. Then it’s time for the potatoes again. Add them to the pot, cover it and let it cook for 20mins. Serve with chopped parsley and some freshly ground pepper.

Babies in my life!

I love kids and now that my brother and my sister in law are expecting babies I couldn’t be more happy! Especially with my brother whose wife is expecting a little girl and I certainly cannot wait to dress her!! I’m sure you know what I mean.. not that little boys are not stylish or anything..on the contrary, I love it when they wear folded, at the bottom, pants and little cute hats!! Here are some outfits I spotted on pinterest. Are these stylish or what?

I can’t wait to hug, and play with and dress them!!! 

Smitten by:: Urban Cartel

I pride myself on my ability to stay away from buying anything beautiful comes my way. Especially when I stumbled upon these milk bottles from Urban Cartel. And although there’s a good chance you’ve already seen them, I couldn’t help but share the amazing tableware by Urban Cartel. 

Urban Cartel is an Australia based shop, founded in 2011 by Craig Pearce. The brand provides a variety of handmade porcelain tableware, mostly in pastel and light milky colors. You can find their products on their site and buy them on etsy

I for one would really love to buy several things…and especially a pink milk bottle…and some plates wouldn’t hurt at all… 😉

On my mind:: moodboard + words

The truth is I’m yearning for some more summer cause unfortunately I didn’t have the chance to fully enjoy this one. But it’s high time to get back to serious business blog- and study- wise. So, as much as I hate to say this, goodbye summer, till the next time! Nevertheless, I cant’ wait to see what autumn and winter have in store for me. I like to consider September as a new beginning, similar to new years for example. Maybe because I’m a student..but it always feels more natural to me start over after summer. Anyway, this year is going to be all about my thesis and studying etc.. But I’m planning to post much more around here and work hard for this blog to unfold and develop it’s style and content. 
Till next time guys! xoxo

DIY Cement Coasters

I’m trying almost a week to edit a tutorial video for this project and unfortunately the program I’m using crashed. So I decided to share the project with you and as soon as I fix the problem I’ll edit the video and upload it here too. 
I’m not afraid to admit that I’m almost addicted to cement and all the objects made out of it. So this time I  decided to make coasters for my living room table -since it’s wooden and stains extremely easily. 

I used little paper boxes covered with tape as molds. I like the industrial look very much, so I didn’t care to make them look the same. For example I made some a bit thicker and others really thin. If you want to give it try, you’ll need some cement and water. Combine the ingredients in a large bowl and then pour the mix into the molds. Let them dry for at least 24 hours. When dried, remove the molds and if you like you can sand down the rough edges. 

DIY custom iPhone cable

Hello hello hello!
Long time no see… Things have been hectic lately and it was really hard to find some time to post here. But I found time 2 weeks ago and customized my iPhone charging cable. So I thought it would be fun to share! It’s nothing too hard or special but it sure is nice to have a nice colorful -or not- cable. Since I love black and white -and all the greys in between- I chose my washitapes accordingly. Then I wrapped them alternating the colors, forming a grey scale pattern. Of course it will be nice too, if you use brighter colors instead.. So let me know what you did and think 🙂
