This blog is about my daily discoveries mostly in the Spanish capital, the city I have been living in for now 15 months, but also about my travels around Europe. I want to share things related to the topics food, culture, fashion, travel and the Spanish life Madrid is full of.
I started this blog, inspired by many other blogs I am reading regularly, to share my view of things with many others out there. My fist intention was to write about Madrid, a city I am discovering every day and where I find the most interesting things. Living in Madrid I realized very fast that it is very different compared to the other european cities I have been to and lived in. The way people here spend their days, dress up and go for dinner, party all night, shop at their many markets, care for their lives and the city they are living in is fascinating me.
On the other hand I wanted to write about all the things I like in life. That includes travel, food and cooking, fashion, style, interior decoration. I feel a big love for vintage but wouldn’t live only by shopping in second-hand stores. A good combination of new and old is important.
About me: I am originally from Poland, grew up in Germany and studied in Switzerland. At the moment I live in Madrid, Spain and will be writing about the the Spanish capitol, the Spanish life and Travel around Spain and Europe.

How?s your accounting?
Normally I never talk about money here, I prefer to talk about quality buys. There is another Warren Buffet quote I like a lot and it goes like this: Price is what you pay and value is what you get. I started to account for everything I pay since November last year after taking an […]

Preparing for summer?
I am getting more and more into beauty products and the latest experiment I started is self-tanning. This Body Shop self-tanning face lotion I bought actually by accident, I never had in mind to use self-tanners in the first place. Living in Madrid it is quite easy to get the sunshine necessary for... Fri, 11 Apr 2014 11:31:27
Not a facebook status?
Facebook has somehow become a background entertainment website, not really important but with some minor value to it. Facebook groups are practical and facebook friends from all over the world won’t just disappear because you just don’t have the time to chat on a regular basis…but... Wed, 09 Apr 2014 10:44:45
April Style ? Salt Body Scrub
It’s already past spring breaking into our lives this year but with the difficult April weather it is quite easy to spend time at home rather than outside. Yesterday I checked my little style bible by Frederic Fekkai on what to do in the beauty sector for this month and found a tip saying to ... Sat, 05 Apr 2014 15:05:31
