Macaroons for rainy summer day in Norway

I love Norway! But summers sometimes are way too cold and rainy. 
I was so lucky and spent a month visiting this beautiful country. :)

Sebastien Bruno in Oslo, Norway .... mmmm... i love macaroons! :)
So I had to try this amazing place while in Norway.
My aunt knows the best places to shop and have coffee/macaroons.
When I am visiting Paris I usually visit Ladurée. My all time favorite place.
(My wedding cake will be Ladurée macaroon cake with Ladurée wedding cake topper). :)

they have the most amazing flavors.... oohhh.... just want to eat all of the cute cakes and macaroons. Perfect place to be on rainy Norway summer day.

My beautiful aunt choosing macaroons to take home. Love her style. She have the best taste when it comes to clothes.

Love the interior :)

Family New Year Dinner

It is not always easy to celebrate thing together with my family so we usually spend Christmas together, but on New Years we are with our own families, friend.

This New Year we were so lucky and celebrated New Years together at Fabrika Restaurant in Riga, Latvia.
It is reited as one of the best restaurants in Riga. With the beautiful views of old city.

It's located across the river, on Ķīpsala, right on the river bank, in the brick loft apartment house, that served during the Soviet times as a plaster factory.
So it's one of the best places to watch fireworks. :)

And the food was truly amazing.

Lights were bit too dim so pictures turned out bit dark. But that's only because I don't like to use flash :)

My beautiful aunt.



Taka Spa

Hi! :)

Happy New Year everyone! :))

Few days before New Year me, my sisters, mom and aunt went to Taka Spa in Riga, Latvia. It was so lovely there.
After cleansing rituals in Taka Spa’s pools and baths we went to rest in the Quiet Room having tea and snacks. I just loved everything about that place.
Steam sauna was my favorite. We use the body scrub while in the sauna and my skin felt and looked amazing after.

One of my favorite places to go when visiting my family back in Latvia.

Outside. Perfect thing to do on cold and snowy winter evening.
