Style Inspiratio: In Bloom | Vogue China March 2014

Project Fairytale

I honestly do not know the real name given to this editorial, but I really love the springish feel it gives and all the beautiful flowers. Its sweet colors and the afternoon light make think about a host trying out different outfits for the soirée she is preparing later on, a little like playing dress-up when you have an incredible dressing.

Wednesday’s Specials: Figs and Gorgonzola Tart

Project Fairytale

I know I told you previously about deGulie and their absolutely wonderful cakes (btw, if you’re from Bucharest and need a spectacular cake for a birthday or any other event, I strongly recommend you to contact them, you will have an unforgettable experience). And I will keep telling you about them as long as I like, since every time I check out their website, I find a new idea. This time I was conquered by the Figs and Gorgonzola Tart. As the recipe is in Romanian, I will do my best to offer the most accurate translation possible :p

The cake

  • 250 g flour
  • 125 g butter, cool, cut into small cubes
  • An egg
  • Some dried thyme
  • A pinch of salt

Mix the flour and the butter until it reaches a crumbly consistency and then start incorporating the eggs (slightly beaten before), thyme and salt. If the mixture is still too dry you can add a tablespoon of cold water and continue to knead.

When it’s well mixed, stretch the dough into a thin sheet put it into a tart shell and leave it into the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

Meanwhile preheat the oven (180 degrees), put the tart in the oven after previously covering it with a sheet of baking paper over which you put some rice, beans, coins, etc. and bake for 10 minutes like this.

Remove the “weight” and bake the tart for another 10 minutes, until golden brown around the edges.

The filling

  • 6 figs
  • 200 g gorgonzola cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • 150g Greek yoghurt
  • A few leaves of sage

Beat the eggs well, add the yogurt and chopped sage and put them over the baked tart. Mince the gorgonzola chicken and sprinkle it over the eggs. Cut the figs into quarters and arrange them on top (or you could just put them in whatever shape you wish). Cook everything in the oven for another 30-35 minutes and that’s about it.

Lem’s Înfrumuseţează Casa de Paşte

Project Fairytale

Paştele este o sărbătoare foarte importantă în familia noastră iar locul preferat din casa părinţilor mei in aceste momente este bucătăria şi zona de luat masa. Probabil i se datorează mamei şi talentului ei culinar care sper că mi-a fost transmis şi mie măcar într-o mică măsură.

Şi pentru că mâncarea delicioasa şi o familie numeroasă au nevoie de un loc perfect pentru a se întâlni în condiţii optime, am decis să accept provocarea Lem’s de înfrumuseţare a casei de Paște, şi m-am gândit la un set de masă Arena şi scaune Mix.

Project Fairytale

De ce tocmai acestea? Simplu: pentru că masa este colorată (eu ador culorile iar bucătăria părinţilor mei este în nuanţe de verde iar varianta portocalie ar merge perfect), pentru că este extensibilă (pentru a nu incomoda în momentele în care nu sunt prea mulţi musafiri prezenţi) şi pentru că setul este conceput pentru 6 persoane, exact câți ne vom aduna noi acasă de Paște.

Project Fairytale

Şi vă mai dezvălui un secret: între 7 martie si 30 aprilie, la Lem’s beneficiaţi de până la 50% reducere la toată gama de mobilier.
Lem’s este o marcă 100% românească, al cărei motto este: Buna dispoziţie de acasă.

Fairytale Dress: Rue de Seine New Zeeland

Rue de Seine | Project Fairytale

I was convinced by a dear friend that New Zeeland is like a promised land. The perfect place to live in or at least to visit often. The place where majestic scenery and developed cities live together. And the home of Rue de Seine, by bridal designer Michele Corty. The gorgeous dresses in ivory and blush tones, raw edges and fringes, perfect lace and dupioni silk are perfectly complimented by the lovely accessories like crowns, shoes or purses. And fear not, I will feature some other stunning gowns from them soon!

DIY: Melted Crayon Easter Eggs

Easter DIY | Project Fairytale

Easter is fast approaching and each year I am looking for creative ways to decorate the eggs. This is my favourite part when preparing for Easter. Me and my mum always color the eggs on Maundy Thursday, according to the Orthodox tradition and make some of them using onion peels and decorating with leaves from the garden. I also like to add some that I decorate myself, sometimes painting them directly, other times applying all kinds of stickers.

Easter DIY | Project Fairytale

But as all my ideas seemed a little old already, having been used previously, this DIY project found on JennaBurgerDesign made me really excited: it looks easy, I have all the supplies at home (namely crayons and the eggs that will be bought) and the effect is really nice. I can already picture these pretty babies poking their heads from the basket :)

Project Fairytale

Happy Monday lovely people! I am wishing you a nice week from Casablanca, so I figured the sand dunes and the whole vibe this editorial gives will be the perfect match with my current whereabouts. I really love the fluidity present throughout the whole concept of this shoot, the complementarity between the dresses and the scenery, and the superb minimalism. It’s simply breathtaking <3

Interiors: Another Swedish Real Estate Gem

Swedish Real Estate Gem | Project Fairytale

I am not particularly fond of real estate agents and among my many dreams of future careers, this one never popped into my teen-age head. But I would probably like it a lot more if I would be living in Sweden. I really believe that real estate agents there are totally happy creatures, living each day surrounded by perfect interior design and gorgeous details one can only find in Scandinavian homes.

Weddings: A Glam Romanian Wedding and Stunning Dress

Project Fairytale

Last week I found this wedding shared by more than one of my Facebook friends. They are usually an inexhaustible resource of beauty, so I made a habit on clicking on their links. I simply adore when I find the work of talented Romanians on international websites or in magazines. And this wedding is no exception: gorgeous photos, a stunning dress, perfect venue and the most original centerpieces.

Beauty Notes: Top 5 Fairytale Braid Hairstyles

Top 5 fairytale braid hairstyles

Via

Went to see Cinderella last night and I constantly wondered, throughout the movie, who did her hair? Honestly now, I have two left hands and although I have the capability of braiding my hair in a three strand braid, I am perfectly incapable of doing a fishtail. So, I went on a Pinterest / Tumblr rave, to find an appropriate solution for nicer spring styles (I cannot stand my hair in my face on hot days). And this is what I found, they seem easy enough, and one of them cheats on the fishtail in a very spectacular way <3<3<3

Style Inspiration: Debenhams is Returning to Romania

Project Fairytale

A few years ago Debenhams used to be one of my favourite shops in Bucharest. I loved the fact that I could find basic pieces in one place, I could buy the perfect gifts for my boyfriend and any other male friends (they had a large palette of sizes for menswear, which was a big plus) and I loooooved the lingerie area (I love any store that has almost all their styles in DD and E cups but small sizes like 70 or 75). So, I was a regular let’s say. And now, when I received the news they are making a comeback on the Romanian market, I was really happy.

Project Fairytale

And they are coming back in style: a huge store, on three floors featuring women’s, kid’s and menswear, home, accessories and lingerie will create a new universe, mixing their own brands with international brands and designer collaborations (among others Julien Macdonald, Jasper Conran, Ben de Lisi, John Rocha, Henry Holland, Patrick Grant, Jeff Banks). And that’s not all, Debenhams will be the first department store in Romania that will include a rather generous beauty section, where more than 100 brands of perfumes, make-up and skin care. And the specialized consultants teams will ensure you will have a marvelous experience.

Project Fairytale

Actually, the shop will open today and I am ready to pay it a proper visit. Are any of my Romanian readers as excited as I am?
