I have been in Amsterdam the past few days for three shoots, meaning a busy and hectic weekend. I love sleeping in my own bed (don't we all) and I have to say I miss our lovely new home. We have created this little corner of plants and flowers (for some I still have to buy a vase) which is a perfect addition to the rest of the interior, which is pretty minimal. We found the holder for the plants at Ikea, from a special collaboration line, luckily it was in sale! When it comes to the plants, I chose plants that do not need much water, since I either always forget or am away from home. When it comes to the orchids, nobody can resist those right?
New Yorker dressOn such a hot day all I want to wear is a bikini. Well, unfortunately that is not an appropriate outfit for work, hehe. So, I wanted to wear a dress - instead of shorts, because they will only stick on your body and will make you sweat even more. I chose to wear out my new pretty white dress from New Yorker and combined it with my new sandals (which I bought in Croatia), a brown bag and my brown Prada sunnies. A very very simple summer look, perfect for such hot days…
While the sound of a kale salad doesn't appeal to all, this version is definitely worth I try. I will confess that I'm not a kale eater myself but once I had a bite of this I was sold. It is a perfect salad for that hot summer day and for me a perfect slide away from my regular tuna salad (love tuna salad). Here are the ingredients that you are going to need: 8 ounces of kale 1/2 pound of strawberries 4 medium radishes, sliched thin 2 ounces feta cheese (optional) 1/2 pistachios (or walnuts or pecans) 1/2 almonds 1 tablespoon honey Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste.
Slice/peel and prep all the ingredients and put them in a bowl. Toss and add honey, salt and pepper and for the spicy lovers a table spoon of chili. Enjoy!
