Have A Drink!

 Take a lime. At least a quarter of it.

 And some ice cubes.

 Actually plenty of ice.
 And pour the drink into the glass.

Nothing beats a glass of ice cold Diet Coke on a hot day like this!

Pure & Good In Budapest

On my morning run to Margit Island I noticed this new store on Pozsonyi Street. Later popped in and checked what they had. Spices, herbs, beans, rice, gluten free ingredients, healthy snacks... simply pure & good!
They have started the shop with no fancy decoration etc and step by step when the business grows they will add something extra to it. The main thing is the variety of products. They didn't yet have chia seeds, but added them on their list, so on my next visit there will probably be those on the shelf.

Keep On Learning!

 Learning new skills is never waste of time.
There are lots of people around me who have began to study to achieve a new profession or to complement the existing one. Some do it beside their daily job, some do it full-time. I like to attend workshops, courses and different classes. Just had a great Masterclass organized by the Guardian in London. The classes took place at King's Place, which is the Guardian's head office . It's also the home for London Sinfonietta (you probably know that the building is quite familiar to me!). It's located near King's Cross and just a short walking way from Islington. The Regent Canal walk is great!

 Exhausted but happy! 
So much new information. Can't wait to get started.

ps. the Guardian Masterclasses are very well organized. Refreshments and lunch are included, and the canteen food there is excellent.

Devil Wears Prada & So Do I

 I guess it's been lovely warm even hot week all around Europe. Wanted to avoid heavy dressing (like always!) so this has been my favorite outfit  while running errands in the city. Found a pair of trousers in the back of my closet which I'd bought ages ago in New York and they became my new best pants immediately! 
Simple, nothing fancy.

pants - Prada
top - Gap
shoes - Toms
sunglasses - Fendi
bracelets - Tiffany's, Michael Kors, Thomas Sabo
the pale pink leather bracelet bought at Nougat, Helsinki last summer
watch - Gucci

ps. not yet make-up...although the skin feels already much better. Probably because of the strong medicine I feel extra tired.

Hot Red It Is!

Just can't get enough of glitter...
After base coat added 2 layers of pure red and on top a layer of pinkish glitter. 
The polish promises glossy nails for up to 7 days... I'm sceptic, but let's see! 

Red: Max Factor Glossfinity in #85 Cerise
Glitter: Lumene Natural Code in #58 Pink Diamond

On The Way To...

 If you are on your way to Porvoo from Helsinki, don't miss Kulloo!
There's a golf course and next to it Kulloon Kartano/Kullo Gård/Kullo Mansion, where a fantastic "Butiken på landet" boutique is located. There's also cottage accommodation available.  

Butiken på landet concept stores are lifestyle boutiques with casual and business wear for both women and men, shoes and decorative pieces for home.

Lake Houses part 7

 Nice view, isn't it?
 This is the last house of lake house hunting at Lake Balaton. Located in Balatonboglar, walking distance from the lake, built in 1955, added some extra space in the late 80s. I would say it's a real retro piece inside out. Condition is pretty poor but that's how it is usually in the houses of that era. People live there but probably are so used to it that don't see that maybe some changes would do good. Or maybe it's a money issue. Who knows.
Lots of space, two levels, big garden, nice neighborhood, near shops & restaurants, but still on a quiet street without almost any traffic.
Upstairs in the middle the rooms have yellow glass ceiling windows... 

View to the side.

Asking price 47 million Hungarian forints (€157.000).

So there were 7 houses to choose from...
Next time I'll tell you which one was chosen & bought!
