Trapeze Tops

Free flowing trapeze tops [due to their almost triangular shape - a slightly fitted on top that then cascading down with extra fabric]  are really in right now.  It is important to balance the volume with a narrow bottom so that you'll look chic and not bulky.  This is a cute transitional piece that easily takes you  from Summer to Fall.  Style them with shorts and sandals on hotter days and layer them up with coats and boots during colder months to stay stylish and feel comfortable at the same time.

In The Mood For

{my usual savory go-to at lunch at the beach}
After a great ten days period at the seaside, almost disconnected from social media due to minimal network access, in the beginning I felt a bit anxious for not being able to intereact with my fellow bloggers, but then I've just decided to let it go with the flow and enjoy the pure air and the soothing sea. I will be returning your generous visits soon, but after thiese blissful days of quietness I'm back to a new fenzy, but one that was most desired and mostly longed for - I've started the moving process to the new house yesterday, I'm looking forward with the future and I can't wait!Have a great weekend! I'm in the mood for...

Too Good Not To Post It Right Away

Detox Citrus Water

This has become the perfect summer drink - it helps detoxing from all the food excesses, it is a nice refreshing drink due to the presence of mint leaves, helps you to reduce weight and makes you feel healthier. Pour water in first and then add the ingredients. I feel like there’s more of a burst of flavor when the water gets poured in and everything swirls around, but there’s something to be said for letting it gently infuse itself as well (the water tends to stay a bit clearer as well.) Don’t add ice to the entire jug, and leave it on a cup-by-cup basis. If you plan on drinking it over time, this can help prevent it from getting diluted as the ice melts. Squeeze in the juice of 1 lime or  lemon and then slice up the remaining ones and add that to give it a little extra citrus kick. Enjoy!

  • 1,5l mineral water
  • 2 limes
  • 1 lemon
  • mint leaves ice
