Matcha green tea and strawberry popsicles

I like to call it ice indulgence... those little treats that just seem to make everything better during the hot summer days. When we went to L.A back in April we stopped through Tokyo and of course I couldn't help myself from buying the real Matcha green tea powder, let me tell you it is one of the best I have ever tasted and yes.. I am a little obsessed with Matcha! (see previous recipe here)

Here is my popsicle recipe:


Matcha green tea powder
Icing sugar

-Mix the matcha powder in water and pour the mixture at the bottom of the ice lolly moulds or in glasses (do not fill the moulds as you will need space to add the strawberry mixture). Freeze

-In the meantime puree the strawberries and add icing sugar (to taste)

-Once the green tea has frozen, add the strawberry mixture on top of it, freeze & enjoy!!

Since I saw Miroslava Duma in her gorgeous and fashionable jumpsuit during fashion week, I've been looking into this trend.
I find that jumpsuits are not easy to wear, at least with my body shape... or maybe I just haven't found the perfect one for me yet; however I love how the fashionistas in these pictures are rocking the rend!
What do you think about jumpsuits? Any favorite pics?

Authentic guacamole recipe

Guacamole is one of my specialties and it is so easy to make. Everybody always asks me what my secret is but to be honest there is no secret! Just use the best ingredients (I try to always use organic ones) and mix in a little love ;)
I usually use Tropea onions but here I can't find them so I mix spring onions with normal red onions to give it that extra crunch.

2 ripe avocados 
2 limes 
2 medium/large tomatoes    
chopped cilantro (I use it only when we have guests over as I just can't get myself to like this herb!)
1 bunch of spring onion
1/4 of a red onion
1/2 red chili pepper (I take the seeds out to not make it too spicy)
Salt and olive oil to taste

- With a spoon scoop out the avocados into a bowl and mash them with a fork until chunky as desired
- Add lime juice to prevent the avocados from turning brown
- Add the rest of the ingredients (all finely chopped) and add salt and a dash of olive oil 
-Mix and serve with tortilla chips or to accompany your grilled fish dishes.

The boho - chic islands...


The beautiful houses of Ibiza and Formentera...
I just love the mix of white and wood with a touch of color, that's what I call a perfect Mediterranean island retreat!!! Some pictures are from the home of Marni's fashion designer Consuelo Castiglioni in Formentera!
Which one is your favorite?

Aruna Seth Shoes

Do you remember those gorgeous Aruna Seth Swarovski embellished silver heels and the stunning Alice Temperly emerald gown that Pippa Middleton wore at the Royal Wedding last year? 
Well, in this past week I had the unique opportunity to work alongside Aruna Seth for the launch of her shoe collection in Singapore and Hong Kong. 
Royals and celebrities are amongst Aruna's habitués, from Pippa Middleton and Princess Beatrice to Kate Hudson and Katherine Heigel (just to name a few!). 
Using the finest Italian leather, her shoes provide an ultimate and luxurious comfort; Aruna has been acclaimed by the fashion press around the world for her exceptional designs and attention to detail.
