Pinterest Friday

I wish you a Pinterest Friday- glossy and perfect! 😉

I´m been a bit under the weather the last couple of days, my throat is soar and I´ve had a couple of shitty days at work on account of my state- yesterday I made some mistakes and today I forgot an appointment. 😦 Oops! But then again, I didn´t kill anyone, I don´t know how doctors and nurses can live with themselves when that happens, ´cause I´m a mess already from that! I guess they must have bad days, too. :-/ (And I can´t just stay at home either, ´cause nobody pays me if I´m sick.)

Max Mara

Max Mara is my all time favorite brand and their timeless dresses make my heart skip a beat whenever I see them. So what better day to post these beauties than on a Monday, and a rainy/snowy one moreover? The weather Gods still haven´t decided if it´s winter or spring, one thing is certain though, keep inside and dream of palm trees, if you can! And while dreaming of summer, take a look at some dresses that would make a grown man cry! 😉 Whether you´re a smart business woman, a sporty or a classic gal, there´s something here for everyone! These would be my choices if money was no issue. 😉 Wish I had a bottle of prosecco to drown my longing while we´re at it!

Foccacia

I´ve been making focaccia for a while with the occasional tapas, but it was never the real deal until I checked out this recipe. For my Norwegian followers I recommend this blog: www.frumaela.no

1084151_10151526253081711_102203333_oFor my English-speaking readers here it goes:

1kg flour
1 small bag of dried yeast
2 spoons of honey
1-2 spoons of sugar
1-2 spoons of salt
7-9 dl finger-warm water

It´s important to sift the flour and the yeast twice, so the dough gets more fluffy.
Assuming that you´ve baked before, I go straight ahead. You make the dough, you put it on the washing machine and wash some clothes while you´re at it, close the door so the cat doesn´t get curious and then leave it for an hour to rise.

Meanwhile mix some olive oil with rosemary, oregano, thyme and basil. You can also chop some sun-dried tomatoes, feta cheese or olives if you´d like the focaccia to be more consistent. Have a glass of Prosecco for the best result!;-)

Before putting it in the oven, make some pits with your fingers and pour in the olive oil and herbs. If you add some tomatoes, olives or cheese, be sure to stick them into the dough. Cut the foccacia then into square chunks. Use a sheet of baking paper under and let the dough rest a while. Bake at 220 degrees C for 15 minutes, then take it out and let it rest for 15 min again. Voilà!

Fabulous apartment in Rome

This apartment is designer Carola Vannini´s work of art in Rome and I wouldn´t mind living here while exploring the city! The furniture is carefully selected and kept to a minimum, so the flat´s main assets- the light and the curvaceous frame- emerge in all their splendor. Check out the view from the living room! Imagine staying in the very old town and having a terrace, now that´s what I call luck!
