szia! hello from budapest.

this was my last day in budapest and i finally had time to visit the city a little.
during my trip, my mind about budapest changed completely. at first, i thought that it was a glorious city once, but there is not enough money in hungary to keep the buildings renovated and as beautiful as they were – and i was right with this opinion, but i can see the true beauty of budapest now as well.

view over the buda part of the city from the gellert hill
the magnificent buildings get a mysterious touch through their crumbly facades, there are flower shops everywhere around the city and i believe that budapest has to be the greenest place in europe around summertime because you see trees and parks simply everywhere. for every house there are 3 trees, it seems.
i couldn´t really take pictures because i did a hop-on hop-off tour, so i have to preserve the beautiful images in my mind somehow – do you know this feeling when you see something so surreal and overwhelming, it simply takes your breath away? that´s how i felt today! even though i couldn´t take great pictures, enjoy the ones i captured over the past days:
wide land. 
with the sun on my side.

west end shopping center – 3000 brands in over 300 shops

ready for business 
isn´t this a great lamp? maybe one of the next diy projects…

such a cute, cute café – look at the chairs!

opera

taking a break.

all alone in a crowded place.

waiting for…?

music is a matter of interpretation.

views from budapest.

today afternoon i got to budapest and managed to take a few snapshots! as far as i can say right now, budapest is a beautiful city but it´s a lot different from what i´m used to in austria – but i still have 2 more days here and i definitely want to check out the biggest shopping centre in europe with 400 shops, west end city center or one of the newer ones in the heart of the city!

staying in.

this weekend was so nice and relaxing for us. friday i went for some drinks with my friend and yesterday we went shopping (see last post). in  the evening, my babe and i stayed in, ordered some amazing sushi (which would have been enough for at least 4 people) and watched some dvd´s. today was more or less the same, so my outfit was only something really simple – without any accessories or anything, but nice enough to go for a coffee at my grandparents house.

first time driving with my rooftop open, yay!!!

really good olive oil at the italian restaurant we had lunch at yesterday
best lunch ever: warm bread salad with prosciutto crudo, rocket, sun-dried pickled tomatoes, olives, avocado and parmesan! it´s a quick lunch to do at home as well – just roast the ciabatta bread, insert the rest of the ingredients and warm up everything a little – and there you go! 
sushi party set 🙂

wish you all a nice sunday evening!
xoxo
p.s. off to budapest tomorrow, be sure to stay updated!

purchase – close up

these are some of my last purchases of the month february, but there are still a few items missing in those pictures because i had them in laundry when i took the photos 🙁
but still:
pink blouse from h&m – it gives you a happy spring feeling!

lace shorts – zara 
 close up on the material:

plissée skirt, zara

sunglasses – dsquared, belt and scarf – zara

2 „pliage“ bags from longchamp in nice summer colours – love them so much!

dark red trousers from zara (but the true color looks way different than on the picture, in reality it´s more of a red wine color)

see-through, silky shirt from h&m (looks good with a black bra underneath, or – if you are less daring – with a black tube top)

peachy top, zara

nailpolish – anny (gifted from my lovely babe), scarf with lace – h&m

i´m missing a few tops, necklaces and blazers here – but you see, february was a pretty good month shopping wise 🙂
next month i will try to cover up some items from my wishlist!
