Stockholm guide

Houses painted in warm colours with white contouring. White boats on blue sea. Kardemummabullar. Stockholm was love at first sight. Although I live in a capital myself, I am highly critical of living in capitals. When traveling, I usually enjoy the vibrant vibes of cities, yet I cannot imagine staying for a longer period of time in […]

Indian summer: Curcuma latte. NBS Episode 04

To be honest, I got the idea for this drink from a woman’s magazine where it was being advertised as “the latest food trend coming from the USA”. That was more than two months ago and it seems like it has not even arrived in Europe by now. Maybe never will. Too bad. This curcuma […]

Creamy, crunchy, nutty, fruity, sometimes spicy… all of these flavors and consistencies are combined in my daily yoghurts.  I know most of the Internet blogs opt either for full-fat greek yoghurt or super-sweet granola, I choose neither and I am still rewarded with an excellent taste. The following recipe should serve you lots of ideas, […]

Short-term summer resort in Baden

If you consider coming to Vienna for a longer period of time or if you are already a resident, you might want to go on some kind of summer resort during hot summer season. The best spot to visit then is probably Baden. Last sunday, my parents were having their 22nd wedding anniversary which is […]

Raspberry and Quark: Challenge accepted!

Don’t be so shy – try out something new! Like this supercalifragilisticexpialidocious quark mousse with raspberry sauce. It kind of reminds me of the classical vanilla ice cream with hot raspberry sauce, but it is not quite like it. Instead, it is a wonderful quark mousse (quark is a very special kind of milk product, […]

The problem with sustainability

It has become almost compulsory these days to declare one’s company as sustainable and eco-friendly. However, are those declarations always truthful? Is H&M supportable because they have launched a Conscious campaign and at the same time continued to produce under questionable working conditions? Not to forget the tremendous amounts of clothes being bought every day […]
