RECIPE: homemade pizza pockets with asparagus

After the last, healthy breakfast smoothie recipe (check it out HERE), it is time for a little something savory today. After all, it is the weekend, which is when calories don’t count and pyjamas and sweats are considered real outfits (at least in my world). Ironically, I am still in my sweats while writing this, with a belly full of homemade pizza pockets with asparagus. Yumm! While I would love to pretend like it was my full intention to make these delicious pizza pockets when I was shopping for groceries yesterday, it would be a complete lie. I actually wanted to make a strudel with puff pastry, but apparently grabbed pizza dough instead of the pre-made puff pastry. The wrong dough called for some improv action in the kitchen, and luckily the result was pretty satisfying.

OUTFIT: mister V

Don’t we all love a happy ending? I, for sure, am a sucker for cheesy stories where everyone ends up happy. Without saying, the same goes for stories that involve myself, especially in combination with the endless hunt for a bag. I think I’ve mentioned the Valentino medium lock bag at least a dozen times here on the blog, I’ve included it in multiple collages and I visited the Valentino boutique here in Vienna on a weekly basis. So what’s the problem, you may wonder? The color!!! Naturally, I had to fall for a color that is constantly (!!) sold out. It’s called p45 – just incase you’re wondering. The most perfect dusty pink. Not too girly, but not too old-fashioned. Love at first sight! Originally I wanted to spoil myself for my birthday, but turns out Mister V had other plans and the bag was not to be found. Then, last Saturday, I had this weird sudden urge to check Net-a-Porter, and sure enough, it was there. Filled with panic, and a super expensive bag in my shopping cart, I called Kathi to make sure I wasn’t hallucinating about the color. Turns out I wasn’t, and the stunning medium lock bag in powder pink is now mine. Luckily my brain turned off for a few seconds before buying it, so I was irrational enough to shop a bag like that on a random Saturday morning, because guess what? In less than 48 hours it was completely sold out again …

OUTFIT: lace collar blouse

I know what you’re thinking: “Another trench?!” And while the answer is yes, this post isn’t even so much about that perfect black trench coat for Spring (which I absolutely adore), but rather about my newest addition in the category of white blouses. That lace collar! When I showed it to Kathi before ordering it last week, her instant reply was “Such a Vicky-piece!”. That’s about all the affirmation I needed, and now it is mine. It will be super cute with a pair of cut-offs and a bright lace bra underneath for Summer, but right now I am loving the lace collar blouse paired with my sweaters for that special little touch.

HEALTHY LIVING: The Monday Ritual

Mondays aren’t always my favorite. It is hard to go back to emails and long to-do lists after all the weekend fun (I am sure most of you can relate). Lately, however, I’ve found a way to make Mondays pretty enjoyable. They are what I like to consider my “me days”. For a few weeks now, I’ve scheduled in my hot yoga class as an actual appointment in my calendar. It is at 5:30pm, which was usually almost impossible to make. There were other meetings or things that were prioritized, causing me to cancel on yoga and ending the day annoyed because I was skipping one of my favorite workouts – yet again. Now, however, that it is a fixed point in my agenda, it not hard at all. I treat it just like other appointments, with the same importance.
