Weekends are the perfect time to sit back, relax and enjoy! And what better way to do that than discovering great recipes, exciting travel destinations, new restaurants and interesting articles? Once per month I’m sharing with you my favorite weekend reads from the blogsphere and beyond to keep you inspired. I’d love to hear yours, so do share!

Istanbul is a very special place. Western and Eastern culture blend in and create a unique energy. I’ve already been there once but after seeing this photo diary I want to go back asap!

Aside from a serious case of wanderlust, I also have a major sweet tooth (my absolute favourite spots include La Pâtisserie des Rêves, Meert and L’Éclair de Génie). Last weekend I made these triple almond brownies – easy peasy and delicious!

Lately, I’ve been also pinning like there’s no tomorrow (you can check all my Pinterest boards right here). After coming across this pin, I couldn’t resist the idea of creating a similar travelling map for the places I’ve already been to and the ones I hope to see soon – a travel diary and my bucket list in one!

According to researchers gold really does grow on trees – if only I had one! For the whole story read this article and feel free to spread the word!

Hope you all have a great weekend! x
