In the Green Kitchen: Fruit Infused Water


Summer is here! Heat is scorching and refreshments needed! Fresh cold water is delicious, but since last summer I have discovered an amazing new and delicious way to drink water. It is called fruit infused water, and I am discovering new and new combinations of herbs and spices.

What you do is combine delicious flavors and let them stay in the water for a few minutes. Then put ice and enjoy the colorful deliciousness in your glass (or jar)!

Here are my four favorite combinations:

Cucumber + Lemon + Basil

It is refreshing and delicious. A little sour from the lemon, and satiating and quenching from the cucumber. The basil gives it just a little exotic flair.

Watermelon + Mint

It is so light and sweet! I love the freshness of the mint in combination with sweetness of the watermelon.

Grapefruit + Rosemary

It is the most potent one in terms of flavor. The grapefruit gives it a bitter-sweet citrusy punch and the rosemary just takes you away to a filed in France.

Orage+ Lemon+ Thyme

This one is the boy’s favourite. It is sweet and resembles Orange lemonade. Simply delicious!

Have you tried fruit infused water or you prefer the fizzy drinks from the store?

Лятото е тук, а с него и безумните жеги, в които са нужни много течности и свежест. От миналото лято открих плодовите води- това за мен е нов и много вкусен начин да пия вода. Прави се като плодове и подправки се накисват във вода и се оставят 15-20 минути да си пуснат ароматите. Така водата инфузирана с плодове и подправки е лека, приятна и утоляваща. Това, което правите след това е слагате в чаша с много лед и се наслаждавате на ароматната и шарена чаша хлад.

Това са моите любими комбинации…

Краставица + Лимон + Босилек

Тази комбинация е тотална класика! Леко кисела, ароматна и с вкус на лукс.

Диня+ Мента

Тази комбинация е толкова лека и сладка. Динята, в комбинацията с ментата прави водата много приятна и освежаваща.

Грейпфрут + Розмарин

Тази комбинация е за ценители – леко горчива от грейпфрута, а розмарина ви изтрелва някъде в прованс.

Портокал+Лимон+Мащерка

Тази е любимата на момчето. Прилича на оранжада, но не е толкова сладка, а просто ароматна.

Kitchen Inspirations


So all summer we have been renovating our apartment, the kitchen and the bathroom in particular. This calamity kind of explains why I have not been posting here as often as I would have liked to over the summer, but now after a couple of months -we are ready! I am going to share photos of the new kitchen on the blog soon, but I wanted to start with the inspiration board. Pinterest have been an amazing place to get ideas, look at beautiful imagery and plan what exactly you want. Here are some if my faves.

The Perfect Baking Set


I haven’t salivated over Anthropologie amazingness for quite some time, and now as we are starting a huge renovation project for my kitchen, I feel the need to look for the perfect kitchenware, of course on http://www.anthropologie.eu and dream a bit. Here are the perfect baking set items – measuring spoons and cups, rolling pin and two pans- for brownies and for pie. All of the pieces are stoneware, microwave and dishwasher safe, beautifully painted and as everything Anthropologie – so fun. I love Anthro and wish we had stores like this in Bulgaria.

Не съм се захласвала по Anthropologie от доста време, а сега тъй като започваме мащабен проект за обновяването кухнята ни, абсолютно чувствам необходимост да си търся най-чудесните кухненски аксесоари и разбира се мястото за най-прекрасните кухненски нещица е http://www.anthropologie.eu . Тук споделям няколко перфектни открития от сайта – мерителни лъжички и чашки, точилка и две тави-​​за браунис и за пай. Всички неща са направени от stoneware, и спокойно могат да се ползват в микровълнова печка и съдомиялна машина, красиво изрисувани са и като всичко Anthropologie – толкова забавни. Много обичам Anthropologie и ми се иска да си го имахме и в България.

On the Move Again: Kitchen from Anthropologie


I am moving again to a new flat, and as with every move I am overwhelmed with decorating the new place, choosing the right accessories and of course making it as homey and me as possible. In order to begin the whole process, there is always a room to start from and this time it is the kitchen! I was looking for some ideas on the Anthropologie site (my obsession with the brand is widely manifested) and found some of the coolest accessories for the so coveted kitchen. I love the vintage feel of most of them and that they are kitschy but in a very cool and stylish way.
