Taco loco

I have a little Mexican lady living in me. Every now and then she screams "Chipotle!!" And then I just have to have a nice spicy & juicy burrito. Yumm..

Spring is here - hooray hooray!

Finally! I thought this day would never come! Got to leave my wintery boots at home and went all the way kawaii on this sunny day!

A friend of mine sent me an invite to a shopping event; some Parisian designers had a sale at a French lady's apt downtown. Of course I had to check this out! Bought these nice pieces of jewlery! Kjewt!! So kjewt!

I heart Japanese Lolita

On todays Swedish morning tv they interviewed four adorable youngsters, all dolled up in their Japanese Lolita-looks. So friggin cute!! Oh, would it be too weird if I, at the age of 34, adapted this fabulous sub-culture? Would it!? Arghhhh, it's too late for me, isn't it?? What I wouldn't give to be a young girl again (only for this matter though. I can definitely do without all the insecurity, emotional roller coaster, hard climate at school and the wish to fit in somewhere). I have to confess though, I probably wouldn't have the guts to dress this way. So brave and amazing. Or maybe the climate is a little warmer these days, at least in the bigger cities, to dress and be different. I hope so.

Anyway, this morning I fell madly in love with these wonderful creations! Enjoy!

I really want to clarify that this culture has nothing to do with the old notion of the name "Lolita, or the novel/film from the 60:ies.

Too old to twilight

So, is anyone else excited about "Breaking Dawn, part 2" finally being available on DVD (or, as is the case for me, Apple TV)? I know, I know, I'm way too old. But the public opinion never did matter to me, so what the heck - I'm gonna own it! I am really really excited and I've been planning this evening all week! Mr. P is on a business event. Baby S skipped her nap and is therefore sound asleep already. I ordered some food for home delivery (love this city) and poured a glass of wine. And now I'm gonna enjoy this teenage movie. Yes, I am!

St. Stephen's Basilica times two

This was a sunny weekend spent in the glory of the St. Stephen's Basilica, or Szent István Bazilika. The impressive basilica is on every top ten list of what to see when in Budapest. And of course we have passed it before, admired it and been in aw of it's size and beauty. But no where have I read that you can actually enter it. More less that you can climb 364 steps (or, more convenient, take the elevator) and enjoy a breathtaking 360 degree panorama view of Budapest. Now I do. And so do you.

We were thorough in our sightseeing. We ended up visiting this temple of prayers both Saturday and Sunday. Sort of making up for not visiting it at all these past 15 months.

This is what I learned about the basilica. It's the third highest building in Budapest. The church is named after Saint Stephen I of Hungary, the first King of Hungary. The King died in 1038. They actually keep his mummified right hand in a shrine in the reliquary. It passed many hands and countries before finally ending up in a sparkling shrine in Budapest. Someone came up with a genius idea to make money off this relic. If you toss a coin in the machine placed next to the shrine, the shrine will light up for a minute. Well ain't that sometin?!

On Saturday we toured the church, and had all the bling dazzle us. So decadent and beautiful. I feel now that I have to redecorate our home. It seems a bit ascetic. And we enjoyed the view of the rooftops. Will definitely go again, perfect to bring visitors here. We also had lunch at this italian crossover restaurant I've been wanting to try out; Tom George Italiano ( I have to say though, my lunch left me quite disappointed. I might try it again though, it's not fair to judge a pasta restaurant by whatever veggies and meat a low carb eater like myself can find on the menu.

We found out there are weekly classic concerts in the basilica, so we got a babysitter and went on a Sunday date night! Started the whole thing up with a three course meal at one of my fav's in Budapest, Baldaszti's ( Then we enjoyed one hour of wonderful music in an even more wonderful setting. Note. It gets quite chilly to sit on a wooden chair in a cold church so I would recommend you to do this when the weather is more pleasant.

What is granola, really? Is it just a fancier word for müsli? Is there any real difference? Since granola is the cool word we're using now, that's what I made tonight. Sure sure!
