In The Mood For

{just because they say summer's not over yet - movies marathons' best companion}

September has brought with it a soft autumanl chill in the air, specially early in the morning and at night and a tenency to a sudden and unexpected rainy shower that makes the wet earth smell amazingly. From this time on I usually feel like favouring cozy evenings indoors though two meals out this weekend at some relative's places will work just fine. It's high time to make my home feel as welcoming as possible do I'm all for scented candles and  fresh flowers all over, soft lamps and hearty meals and unpatienlty waiting for embracing autumnal layers of beautiful clothes. Wish you a lovely weekend! I'm in the mood for...
{searching for the perfect timeless chic robe}
{beautiful classy, chic, modern, crisp emsemble and cool accessories}
{my new scent - an unexpected gift that's a favourite already}
{[baking the sweetest treats with laste summer berries produce}
{a sucker for handbags that are an ode to Fall - at Üterque's}
{this Zara's athleisure style pants that came home with me}

Tarte Framboise Aux Deux Chocolats

Whenever the occasion calls for a special treat serve this creamy, rich, double chocolaty filling in an easy unroll-and-fill pie crust. The raspberries sweetness, tartness, and freshness will refresh the chocolaty side of this tart  - The tartness of the raspberry pairs beautifully with the sweetness of the white chocolate, the bitterness of the dark chocolate and richness of the cream all in all and I'm certain you'll be sure to bake it again and again.

  • 1 shortcrust pastry
  • 100g Dark Chocolate

Preheat the oven to 200ºC. Bake the dough pricking the bottom with a fork and  set aside to cool after baked. Put the gelatin in a bowl with cold water. In a small saucepan, heat the cream. Out of the heat, add the gelatin previously drained. Mix to dissolve the gelatin and pour more than half of the hot cream into a bowl containing the white chocolate cut into pieces and then mix for a creamy ganache. Proceed to do the same with the dark choclate. Put the white chocolate cream cream into the crusty  tart and pour the dark chocolate on top mixing both with a toothpick. Let cool completely and decorate with the fruits. Place the pie in the freezer for about 20 m and then take it to the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Bedroom Lighting Fixture Part 2: Bedside Table

More and more each day I believe in creating the right atmosphere for our bedroom - after all it's all about creating our favourite place, our own little personal sanctuary where we long for a good night rest after a long work day - and besides the obvious décor, bedside lighting is one of the first points of consideration for a bedroom, whether it is a classic option or a more unique lamp to accessorize your bedroom.Lighting is a huge part of your bedroom's style  - lamps are like a much needed accessory: they’re not the main act, but they can make or break it. What's your favourite type?
