H&M Fall/Winter 2011- Loves it!


Not the biggest H&M fan there is, but I must admit that the Fall/Winter 2011 collection looks amazing! There is a sense of luxe in the colors and the cuts, that is unnatural for H&M. Karlie Kloss does her job extraordinary well, and brings an additional high fashion edge to this photoshoot. Of course there is editorial photography magic that creates wonders, but this catalog is great!

Top 10 Fragrances in the USofA


Few days ago, when I was writing about my staple mascara Diorshow, I mentioned that I am one of those women who doesn’t have a staple scent. I have been looking for one forever, but no matter what I try, by the end of the bottle I am tired of it. It is good to know what people like, and what perfumes are the best liked. So there was a survey and now we know.. perhaps the next fragrance purchase will be from the list bellow.

WWD ranked the ten most popular fragrances in the USA. Here is the list:

1. Chanel Coco Mademoiselle
2. Estée Lauder Beautiful
3. Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue
4. Chanel No.5
5. Donna Karan Cashmere Mist
6. Estée Lauder Pleasures
7. Thierry Mugler Angel
8. Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy
9. Calvin Klein Euphoria
10. Clinique Happy

Nothing Like the Sunday Brunch!


Brunch is a staple and we love it!

When I was living in DC, some of the best times we have had are over brunch! So as Sunday brunch here in Bulgaria is not far away from a staple I decided to turn it into one, at least among my friends 🙂

Here are two simple, super delicious things to start with- eggs florentine and mimosas.

The eggs are a perfect balance of flavours (the way I make them is a bit lighter version than the original recipe) and the mimosas are simply delicious, but a bit dangerous 🙂

Eggs Florentine

Ingredients

4 slices (1 inch thick) sourdough bread

3 tablespoons olive oil

Coarse salt and ground pepper

2 scallions, thinly sliced

1 pound baby spinach

1/3 cup crumbled fresh goat cheese (3 ounces)

4 large eggs

Directions

Heat broiler, with rack set 4 inches from heat. Place bread on a baking sheet, and brush both sides with 2 tablespoons oil. Season with salt and pepper. Broil until golden, 1 to 3 minutes per side; set aside.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon oil over medium. Add scallions and as much spinach as will fit; season with salt and pepper. Cook until wilted, tossing and adding more spinach as room becomes available, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain off excess liquid; mix in goat cheese. Transfer to a bowl; cover to keep warm. Set aside.

Wipe out skillet; heat remaining 2 teaspoons oil over medium. Gently crack eggs into skillet; season with salt and pepper. Cook until whites are almost set, about 1 minute. Cover, and remove from heat; let stand until whites are set but yolks are still soft, about 3 minutes.

Top each piece of toast with spinach mixture and 1 egg; serve immediately.

Mimosas

Ingredients:

Champagne (1 bottle)

Orange Juice (1 carton)

Preparation:

Fill half of a champagne flute with chilled champagne (about 2 ounces) and top off with chilled orange juice (again about 2 ounces), gently stir. Enjoy!

Gaga’s Judas


I have got to share it and ask what’s happening with Gaga? It is a bit too much for me. And the video is ridic, who did the choreography?!! But of course it has been seen about 34.5 million times on youtube, so she is still hitting some right notes for a lot of people…
