Green Adventure

I have been eyeing off terrariums for a while and I always thought I should make one for myself, just the way I like it! However this is something I have been putting off for a while so I have never actually ended up doing it. As these would make perfect gifts and I am currently on a budget (trying to save towards the next Kashen Jewellery collection!) I have decided to make a few this weekend for friends and family and one for myself to keep (of course!). I found few inspirations through these ones:


Viva Terra

Paula Hayes

Green May

My husband would absolutely love this one as he is obsessed with dinasours. So cute.

New York, New York Part 1

I can't believe that it only has been a month since our recent trip to New York, it seems like a very distant memory now. It was my first time there and definitely a dream city to visit (crossing it off my list!). New York has been everything you would expect: busy, beautiful, full of people (everywhere) and oh so fashionable.

There was lots of highlights to our trip, Central Park must have been one of them. It is so big and after walking around for few hours for 2 days I must have seen actually 1/3 of it. Park dominated with yellow coloured leaves as Autumn was well and truly in full swing. On the second day we decided to ice skate at the Trump Ice Skating arena in Central Park. Amazing expierience even though I haven't skated in over 15 years! (No I didn't fall over!).

Part 2 coming soon xx

New Year's Resolutions

For the past two days I have been busy thinking about the new year ahead and what resolutions I should make. One of them is to learn 1 new recipe each week, which can involve anything such as breakfast, snacks, dinner, desserts, smoothies and even cocktails (mmm). I will also blog about my adventures in the kitchen which should motive me more to stick to my resolution. There are quite a few recipes that are on my list and I haven't had the time to get to them:

Apple Jam

Pumpkin Bread

Grilled Corn (had this at Habana Cafe in NYC - Amazing!)

Cuban Sandwich (Habana Cafe)

Polish mini crossaints filled with jam aka. Rogaliki

Polish Dumplings - Pierogi

Mushroom Rissoto
