sushi DIY

yesterday we decided to try and make sushi on our own because we really love sushi and wanted to be creative. 
 i have to say it´s not hard to make at all and i´m really proud of the outcome:

but there are a few things you have to know when you want to do it yourself:
1. buy real sushi rice (you get that in almost every bigger supermarket, i got mine in an asian shop)
2. cook the rice – but not too long, it will get very paste-like if you do. 
general rule for rice cooking: for every cup of rice (1 per person) two cups of water, cook it until all soaks in.
3. flavor the cooked rice with salt, sugar and rice wine vinegar – try out how much you would like.
4. then don´t be impatient – wait until the rice has cooled out.
5. wet your hands entirely so that it won´t stick as much on your fingers.
6. start filling the nori (black sea stuff) with rice (not too much) and start putting your ingredients on one side – then start rolling!
7. be creative – you can fill or top sushi with almost everything as you can see on the picture above (classics are tuna, salmon, avocado, butterfish, spinage etc.)
over all, we had a really nice dinner with fresh strawberry cream and sushi and of course we couldn´t miss out on the spring rolls, which we didn´t diy btw 🙂

let´s bauble a little.

they have THE MOST AMAZING stuff for really affordable prices.
i´ve been scrolling through their shop the last couple of days and always seeing some more pieces i´d love to have.

i drink to that.

wonderful weekend again – and here is how i wore the dress from this post on saturday evening. 
i topped it with a studded leather jacket which you don´t see in the pictures, but i felt like being a true rockstar. also, i got rid of the earrings after wearing them for 5 minutes because it was just too much bling
in the pictures you see some wonderful friends of mine, a very good friend from vienna (you also see her in this blog), a make-up artist who is living in berlin at the moment and the blond boy is one of my roomies. of course my babe was present as well but didn´t feel like taking blog worthy pictures!

dress: love
necklace, ring, earrings: h&m
watch: michael kors
shoes: zara

glossy march.

it´s the end of the month again and i was looking forward to the new glossy box (for those who don´t know the concept: you order a glossybox for 10 € and get a princess like box filled with 5 luxury cosmetic product samples in more or less smaller sizes. unless you don´t quit your abo, the box will be delivered at every end of the month).
this time it is wrapped in the cute light box again and i was surprised how much they put inside.
a bodylotion, tiroler nussöl, artdeco eyeshadow sample, eau thermale from avène, hairoil, moisturizer and a nail file.
unfortunately, i didn´t have time to try out any of the products yet, but am delighted with the filling.

weekend outfit planning.

weekend outfit planning
as weekend is getting closer and the vows that i made last weekend  never to go out again in my life slowly fade, i´m starting to think about what to wear this time. i already own the petrol wrap dress from inlovewithfashion.com 
(my favorite brand at the moment), the aviators and a cool leather jacket (not exactly this one, but it´s kind of similar and has some studs on the shoulders).
the shoes from shoemint are another thing – i wanted to have them SO BAD, but guess what – sold out!
i put myself on the waiting list, but i don´t really expect them to come back in stock anytime soon, which means that i´ve been searching for something only half as perfect as these shoes – without success.

anyone excited for weekend too?
