Home Tweak Home: The Swiss Cheese Plant

Tuesday, June 27, 2017






Fancy adding a bit of bohemian charm to your home this summer? Just invest into a beautifully luscious and somewhat retro Swiss cheese plant. Yup, those grand leaves with holes will transform your space into a mini jungle that will feel serene and relaxing. Oh, and if you need more convincing, they are also pretty difficult to kill. Always a plus, right?

P.S: Fancy more?
P.P.S: Also, my mom just flew in for a very short visit, so I'll be away tomorrow from here and exploring the city with her. See you Thursday morning!

Embroidered Snapshots










Meet Aline Brant, the Brazilian artist who jazzes up her photographs with embroidery in hopes to inject a bit of poetic romantizm into those already pretty special snapshots. I’m mesmerized and speechless, you?

P.S: Speaking of...

Summer Ruffles

Monday, June 26, 2017










According to Cosmopolitan, ruffles are huge this summer! So, if you fancy a feminine and totally romantic twist on your summer uniform, try wearing your favourite shorts with a ruffled top, or go all out and dazzle in a full-on ruffled dress. Personally, I am on a hunt for an understated ruffled skirt that I can wear with simple white tees for casual date nights.

What do you think: thumbs up or down?

P.S: Remember this?
P.P.S: Plus, tons more fashion goodness...

Tip For Surviving The Heatwave



If the heartwave is slowly wearing you down, here is a tiny tip that might just help: pre-cut a bunch of lemons or limes and freeze them. Popping a few frozen lemon wedges (or slices) will make your tap water taste instantly cooler, zestier, fresher and a bit fancier too. Try it! It's the little things...

P.S: Also, this.
P.P.S: And that.

Genius Recipe Posters




Genius! I’m the first one to admit that Ikea is my go-to guilty indulgence! I happily overlook their tedious how-to instructions and I can't get enough of their veggie-balls. Have you tried them?

So you can imagine my excitement when I spotted their latest scrumptious invention. The Canadian branch came up with Cook This Page, an ingenious set of illustrated recipes that are ridiculously easy to follow, safe and unproblematic. The only thing you have to do is put everything in the right place, roll it up and toss in the oven.

Would you try it?

P.S: Home Ikea.
P.P.S: And, this.
