Christmas nails

I was feeling very 'christmassy' today and I wanted to pamper my poor nails a little. They are in a bad shape for a few months now - since the end of the summer. I clipped them, put on some nail cream and added the beautiful Essence nail polish from Circus Circus edition named 03 Applause, Applause. One coat of each. It still didn't feel festive enough so I had to add a layer of S-he nail polish (doesn't have a name, the number is 195). The finished look is very bling-bling. :)

Hello December.

How to decorate your house on a budget? Ikea offers a bunch of ideas that are simple and affordable. My inspiration for christmas decorations comes from the ideas in my head combined with useful tips from Pinterest. I'm going to take some pictures of my "festive apartment" but for now let's just enjoy the beautiful photos from Ikea.

This week we went on a trip to Vienna, where we also visited Mumok museum. My dear wanted to see an exhibition and I was excited about the cupcakes that they sell in their restaurant. The place was a girly paradise, words cannot express it, so I'm going to let you enjoy the photos.

What's baking?

A few days ago I was watching Rudolph's bakery on 24kitchen and he made some gorgeous  puff pastry baskets. Of course I wanted to test them out as soon as possible and my dear also wanted to try out one of Jamie Oliver's recipes with mushrooms and asparagus, so we quickly made a decision for today's lunch.

My dear was working with the wok ...

... and I made these.

We put it together and this is the result!

For dinner I made some quick pizza rolls from the leftover puff pastry. Mix tomato sauce, grated cheese, pepper and oregano (in the original recipe there's also curd and eggs). Spread it on puff pastry. Cover with ham. Roll it up and cut into 1cm thick pieces. Bake at 200° for 20 minutes.
