MOROCCAN INTERIORS

MOROCCAN INTERIORS

Morocco is a country I long to go to. I want to experience the rich culture, the food ( chicken tagine anyone?) , unlimited supply of Argan oil, but more than everything else I would love to soak myself  in Moroccan decór. Not to  forget the handmade, luxurious rugs. So many beautiful things to say about Moroccan interiors. For a country that was inhabited by the French, Berbers, Arabs and Spanish there is a bit of everything going on in…

FRENCH FOOD: MUST EAT IN PARIS

FRENCH FOOD: MUST EAT IN PARIS

French food – you can never go wrong with French food. From French onion soup, des escargots, duck in all forms, croissants and the over 1000 different pastries. French cuisine is everything! So while backpacking on a budget, here’s a few delicacies I tried out and would highly recommend. We did not do any gourmet or over the top restaurants. No snails either. I would eat snails only if nobody aforementioned it. That being said I am yet to taste…

Geneva is beautiful, well every place I go to ends up being beautiful. It is also costly, the nature and Old world architecture however compensates for the uber costly Swiss stuff. If you are visiting or short-staying in Geneva note that all shops (about 90% of them) close at 7 pm. All shops close on Sundays and also on all holidays. All offices & fountains close on holidays too. I made my trip on a Sunday that was also a holiday….

TRAVEL DECOR : PARISIAN APARTMENT

TRAVEL DECOR : PARISIAN APARTMENT

The architecture-archaic historic Old World buildings ( I love using the term “Old World” a lot, like a whole lot). Everything about Parisian architecture blows you away! The tall windows, the rickety wooden floors, the ornately detailed ceilings, parquet flooring, huge entry doors, wainscotting ( the modern contemporalist in me fell in love with wainscotting!Ha! You…

BLACK IN THE LIVING ROOM

BLACK IN THE LIVING ROOM

Living rooms in black are feared by most, loved by others and received with iffyness by some. Black can be too harsh a color and that is the reason one in 1000 people will never consider painting any wall black. Also black sucks in light so rooms with black tend to give off a moody, mysterious and somewhat seductive vibe. The interwebs do not fail when it comes to inspiration on how to get that black inspired living room. Black, White…

BOOTY BASICS: THE PLAN

BOOTY BASICS: THE PLAN

I have been off my workout routine for quite a while now, which reminds me that I have a muscle shake powder I bought last year.

Which is why I went on the prowl for booty shaping, blasting, toning and building techniques. Also, I…
