[Decor] Kitchen Window Treatment or IKEA Hack #1

Kitchen Window Treatment
[IKEA Hack]

I am obsessed with IKEA hacks. For those who don't know what I am talking about- IKEA hacks are creative ways to modify or repurpose Ikea products. You still have all the benefits of IKEA products like price and function but thanks to the hacks you can customize your furniture and turn it into an unicat. The web is fool with amazing ideas and tutorials for IKEA hacks. Some are super simple, some others may require power tools and lots of ingenuity.

Faux Fur Jacket with Embellished Shoulders
[Easy level tutorial]

What I really love about faux fur jackets is that they're extremely warm, cozy and can be easily worn with everything. With Jeans, with an evening dress, even with jogging pants. Female or male- there is a faux fur creation for each and everyone! I am sure you have an old fluffy jacket hidden somewhere in your closet.  Get it out and glam it up with rhinestones, beads or studs.

Leather Applique Statement Sweater
[Sweater makeover]

Remember the time when a sweater was just a sweater and nothing else? It was a scratchy, boring clothing piece that supposed to keep us warm. Those times are definitely over. Still scratchy but not boring anymore. This days, thanks to the creative knit creations of the top designers, the cozy piece became the most popular item for chilly days. Forget the it-bag, the statement sweater is the new must-have fashion piece of the season. Whether it's a folkloric ornament, slogan or applique- a real statement sweater has always a story to tell. And this DIY one says: "I love comics, cats and antiheroes!"

[Gourmet] Homemade Chocolate Macarons with Chocolate Ganache

Chocolate Macarons with Chocolate Ganache
[Dessert recipe]

Don't hate my macarons because they don't look like the French Laduree creations. Everyone who have ever tried to bake Macarons knows how hard it is to get the typical macaron look. They "like" to spread into odd shapes or crack  on top. I already tried countless macaron recipes but they all didn't turn out nearly as perfect as the Laduree's versions. Probably has something to do with my ancient gas oven and my lack of patience :)

But don’t be scared to try these, because even if they don’t turn out as beautiful as the French masterpieces, they’ll still taste delicious. And if somebody dares to question the authenticity of your macarons, say it's the German version - the Macaramburgers!

[Style] Aquamarine

Berlin StreetStyle. Striped top and pastel pleated skirt. Style by Xenia Kuhn.

[Berlin Street Style]

Did you know that Berlin has more bridges than Venice? It's true. According to Berlin Senate Department for Urban Development Berlin has 564 water bridges. Some of them are majestic and historical, some modern and puristic, and some are just primitive wooden boardwalks. But even those are bridges by the definition.

It's impossible to see each of 564 water bridges in the city but there are two ways to see the more beautiful half of them. One: go along the river Spree. There will be a bridge every 200 meters or so. Two: take one of the many typical Berlin boat tours across the river Spree. I promise you'll be amazed!
