Easter tree | Albero di pasqua

Easter trees on Design and fashion recipes

I'm sorry, this post is only available in Italian

Qui in Svizzera ho scoperto una tradizione che in Italia non è ancora molto nota anche se, come tutte le cose, potrebbe diventare presto moda anche da noi. Si tratta degli alberi di Pasqua, fratelli meno famosi dell'albero di Natale ma non per questo meno belli.

For us girls, committed and sensitive, on the agenda there is an important appointment to give someone a better future: WELLA UNICEF DAY.

Underwear 2013: romantic lady

Underwear SS 2013 on Design and fashion recipes by Cristina Dal Monte

Women have a weakness for underwear (nearly as men). Mind you, it is a matter of personal taste, but I think that we have a lot of fun to shop underwear. Especially since the range is so wide and cheap and we are much more free to express our tastes, free from the dictates of fashion.

From Istanbul | Cassette: shoes designers

CASSETTE Istanbul by Simona Zini on Design and fashion recipes

Get lost in the Cihangir district is priceless, especially if you're looking for  some 'fresh air'. This is doubtless one of the most 'radical chic' area in Istanbul,  populated by artists, intellectuals and bohemian.

Rock and horse: yellow look

H&M clutch on Design and fashion recipes

Going for shopping and browsing through the accessories I found this clutch that I immediately liked: the yellow color and the studs go well together but even better, in my opinion, combined with a riding cap.

{ Kids ♡ cooking } tuna tartare, tomatoes, olives and foie gras

TUNA TARTARE on Design and fashion recipes

The tuna tartare is one of my favorite meal. Since I'm living in Swiss I cook it frequently, above all on Friday. I miss jap restaurants and "take away", so common in Milan. Here, all restaurants close early or sell out tuna before 9 pm. But all the restaurants I've tasted are very good. If you come in Lausanne, write me, I'll give you some address. Prepare the tuna tartare is really easy and fast.

Save money: make up purses, use it as a clutch

 Make up purses like a clutch on Design and fashion recipes

Sometimes "cosmetics cases" are so beautiful that you could use them as a clutch. There is also another advantage: not only pretty but also cheaper than an handbag. I surfed on the web, on the magazines and on the videos to find for you the best list (in my opinion, obviously). Enjoy it!

Extravagant bookcases

Bookcase on Design and fashion recipes

I do not know about you, but I own a shameful amount of books. I've never thrown away a book and I also inherited many, so or I leave the house or I find a place to put them (maybe not the cellar that I've already filled).

{ Kids ♡ cooking } chicken with almonds

Chicken with almonds recipe on Design and fashion recipes

I love cooking and I'm happy when I have the time to prepare a special recipe. Unfortunately, with two kids and work, I'm always in a hurry. Therefore I cook often this recipe simple, quick and loved from children and adults. Among other things, it lends itself to many variations, depending on your taste and imagination. It is enough to replace almond and soy with others ingredients and the result changes many times (eg marsala, lemon, mustard ...). Served with rice pilaf is a great dish.

Garage sale: up to date!

Garage sale and swap party on Design and fashion recipes

When economic is down we have to find good ideas to make shopping and save our money. There are not only the flea markets and vintage shops, but also a form of buying really fun. I'd call it shopping 2.0 because is based on the sharing of clothes, shoes, bags and accessories in general (but also furniture, objects, anything you can think of). Let's talk about garage sale.

K-way: sweet memories

K Way on Design and fashion recipes

Sono un'inguaribile nostalgica e non posso fare a meno di trovare conferma di questo mio aspetto del carattere, che emerge fra le altre cose ogni qualvolta mi imbatto in un capo di abbigliamento o in un accessorio che ha segnato la mia infanzia o adolescenza. Ovviamente è un chiaro segno di senilità ma cerco di non farci caso.
