Tuna cake

My Soviet era parents used to raise their eyebrows at non-sweet cake and even in American cook books cakes are almost exclusively sweet. However, here in Europe "cake" is just a category of food and is often savoury. This is an example, an easy fool proof cake recipe that turns out great every time!

Purple NOTD

Okay, so NOTD (nails of the day) is what this type of posts are called but I feel it's not very accurate in my case, and honestly, I think people who change their nail polish every day are insane. I like having nice nails and I strive to keep them safe under a lot of polish all the time, but I really hate doing them. I feel like I should call these "nails of the fortnight" if I go for realism :D Anyway, I did my nails today and I thought they were really cute so I took some pictures.

Life is too short

Last week it was the first time I visited a local cemetery. This is very ungothlike but the explanation is really simple. Our (Orthodox) cemeteries don't have that sober and dignified look you see in pictures of black lace-clad beauties. Besides, all my dead relatives are scattered around the country, there is no social reason for me to visit any graves here in the capital. Until last week.

"Men" jewellery for me

Hey and welcome in the new year! I have some big posts in the works for my other blog but over here I'll be sharing simple things that don't require a lot of effort or pictures :) I still need to figure out a way to take quick and nice outfit photos before I go out but for now I just have a little pendant story.

New life for old earrings

This evening I set to replace a necklace clasp that broke as I was putting it on. Gotta love when that happens to your favourite piece and you're late because you can't find your cardigan and your cats decide to have a poop marathon at the exact moment you're getting out of the house? Anyway, as I took a look at my "to fix" shelf to get the broken necklace I came across this forgotten pair of earrings with gross green stuff on it. No, it's not the lighting. They were cheap and I could have thrown them away but I used to really like them before the stains and they have a pleasant weight. Raise your hand if you're a weirdo like me who likes heavy earrings!
So as long as I was getting the pliers and wire out, I figured why not revamp these a little as well?

Microwave brownies

4am insomnia. I guess it's as good a time as any to share my microwave brownie recipe. I adapted it from several sources that I forgot and changed so much about it that I can call it my own now. All quantities are approximate, you can forget all the numbers and it still works somehow!

New Goth on the block

...but not exactly. I guess "alternative" is a better label, but more on that later.

Hi! This has been on my mind for quite a while. I kept looking for nice photos, planning crafts and photoshoots, gathering background and header ideas... and so a year has passed, and then some more. Now my 30th birthday is approaching, and finally I decided to start with what I have (read: nothing) and see how it goes.
