You know it's time to get to some lap top cleaning when you're trusted partner in crime is acting like your grandmother. The annoying rainbow colored circle is on your screen more often then not. So on this windy kind of rainy (what else is new) summer sunday I am inside shifting through all my files making back ups. I know you should always make back up, but better late then never wright?

While shifting through my files I found some images I forgot about.

I love this picture from Anna Della Russo. She must have planned her outfit with the flowers.

A magical catwalk.

I love the sleek yet comfortable look of this outfit.

I was planning on going to Paris this summer, but I still haven't gotten to it. 

A lovely summer kitchen where I can seen myself baking and cooking for hours.

A perfect setting for a dinner party. I was planning on hosting a lot of dinner party's this summer. Another thing that still hasn't happened.

It's been raining. again! A whole day of just rain. After two days of perfect warm wheather I thought the whether gods had finally decided to give our little county it's well deserved sunny time. But no. Back to the rain.

I decided to brave this rainy season by pretending it's very much the summer I am craving for. So when I saw this recipe I thought it would be a perfect way to end a summer dinner.

Last night I decided to bakes something. I've been completely into baking again. It's such a nice way to relax and let your mind just rest for a bit.  After having some head breakings on my thesis it was just what I needed. I just discovered this blog ( I know I am late, but I am late in general on this whole blogging thing. I love the way how she mixes fashion with lifestyle) and she recomended this recipe for baking a galette. I didn't know what this was at first but it looked delicious.

I had some fresh rhubarb at home so I decided to make this pi but exchange the fruits for rhubarb. As I am a Dutch girl the measurements got me all confused so for the pate brisee I used this Dutch very simple recipe. The result was i have to say quit delicious. It maybe missed some whipped cream or ice cream, but B loved it. As a swede he is a big Rhubarb fan so it wasn't hard to please him on this. Today I got bag from work and I actually liked it even better cold.

Tomorow I have another day of, so maybe in between writing I will bake something else. B will not like this as he is on some kind of ridiculous health plan. Well bad luck for him and more for me I say!
