How to visit 3 countries at once?

Head to the northwestern part of Switzerland to Basel, the “Dreiländereck” of Switzerland, Germany and FranceBasel is the cultural capital of Switzerland having 40 museums and many events such as Baselworld, which is a Watch and Jewellery trade show of the international industry.

Most of the city’s sights are concentrated in the Old Town with narrow medieval of friendly and approachable locals.

A big attraction for tourists is the Rathaus, an impressive 500 year old sandstone building painted in…RED! Also, the modern architecture worth a wonder.

There are numerous restaurants serving most common types of ethnic cuisine (Indian, Thai, Chinese, Italian, Mexican, Japanese, etc.). We had a mouth-watering pizza at Molino Pizza, which is located on Steinenvorstadt, a street with various dinning opportunities. The prices are similar to  Zurich: a pizza can vary from 18-25 euros and a beer 7-10 euros.

We simply loved the Basel vibes as we participated to Fashnacht by mistake, sun was shining and parking was cheaper on Sunday.

Why wearing mom jeans is sexy?

Why wearing mom jeans is sexy?

The answer is simple: You won’t have a Copy-Paste outfit from Pinterest anymore and being different is the new sexy! There’s a lot of variety and even more creativity happening in the denim industry: patchwork, embroidery, unconventional cuts, high/medium/low rise and many colours. You can be creative and yet so sexy!

Do you remember those straight jeans that made your childhood hard? I can’t believe I went back to them without being forced by mother.  I was struggling for a while to find the perfect mom jeans. There are days when you are tired of super skinny jeans, so tight to your skin that are leaving wounds and you would prefer something more relaxed.

My friends couldn’t understand why, but it’s because vintage, straight cut jeans looks so fresh and continue to be popular amongst both the street style set and celebrities.

And…YES! Loose jeans can be nonchalant and sexy too with ankle boot eventually with heel or stilettos or loafers,  crisp shirting, roll-neck sweaters or tops in precious fabrics layered under sharp tailoring.

I am that lucky baster who can wear mostly ANYTHING. Hourglass shapes should draw attention to the smallest part of their bodies, their waist, with a high-rise jean with minimal stretch.

I choose to wear 3 pieces of my outfit from Zara’s 80’s inspired collection, Mango earrings and shoes from Skoringen.

Chinese chicken in your kitchen

It’s Sunday and you don’t know what to cook? I have THE SOLUTION as I have a strong affinity for cooking and…eating. The talent isn’t heritage from my parents, even though dad inspired me about this recipe. The human need for eating helped me in discovering how much I enjoy spending time in kitchen.

Because my followers from InstaStory went crazy, while I was cooking, I have this delicious recipe of Chinese food.

You need:

-Chicken breast(400g)

-Vegetables (carrots, pepper, mushrooms, onion)

-2/3 tablespoons soy sauce

-2 egg

-rice

-condiments(salt, pepper,)

  1.  Cut the chicken into small pieces, put soy sauce, condiments and leave it to marinate for around 15-20 minutes
  2. Julienne the veggies (slice into thin strips).
  3. Cook rice following package directions. Set aside. Cover to keep warm. While rice is cooking, make veggie and chicken mixture.
  4. In a pan add  chicken. Cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly browned and starting to cook through, about 2 minutes.
  5. Add chopped veggies one by one (last ones mushrooms) Stir frequently. Cook until veggies are tender and chicken is completely cooked but not dry, about 5–7 minutes.
  6. Add soy sauce mixture. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat. Simmer until sauce is slightly thickened, about 2 minutes.
  7.  In a saucepan crack in eggs, stirring quickly to scramble eggs and then add the rice.
  8. Place the rice in the middle of the plate and then the chicken with veggies.
  9. Eat and congratulate me for sharing with you this recipe. If you please, send me your result 🙂
