Black tea with whipped cream and chocolate liquor

This is a drink I tried in the old part of Ljubljana in Čajna hiša. It seemed weird enough and sounded amazing enough to pay some extra cents to try it out.
And later on it was impossible not to try make it at home. And well you can imagine it is not difficult to make. Basically you brew your black tea, add some liquor and whipped cream on top. The cream will kinda dissolve into tea and when that happens I usually just add more. ;) But then you can quickly really just eat tons of whipped cream which is not good if you're kinda watching over your weight or healthy eating. You'll still have a sweet cream foam as a top layer that will leave you with a nice creamstache. :)
Hope you like it. :)

DIY Matching Hand- and Makeup Bag for my Sister's Birthday

My favourite sister had her 30th birthday today! Wow, she's getting old. ;) Well honestly it is a bit scary as she's almost the youngest in our family and then I'll be thirty soon, huge problems, I tell you. :D
So she had an idea a while ago for this bag she saw on one girl that is really big but you can flip it over if you don't need that much space. And this 'cover' or whatever you call it is really awesome because then you can do two different styles, one on each side and then wear it however you feel like on a specific day. Well sides do have to match, but still, it's almost like you would have to different bags. Amazing, right?

Just one minus: you can't really do an inside pocket on this bag because you flip it over and then that pocket would either flip with the 'cover' or it would be way to deep in the bag to really be of any use.
But that is not a problem if your sister then decides to do another matching toiletry/makeup/whatever-is-small bag. So this was actually a gift, the big bag was planned for a month or two already and just somehow we ended up sewing it in time for her birthday. Perfect. :)
Hope you like it. :)
And a very happy birthday, Marta. <3

PS: Because I haven't mentioned my fabric store in a while don't think I forgot about it. Last week I was there 4 times. Yes, 4 times. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Wednesday. Overdoing it? Never! :)

New DIY Toiletry/Make-up Bags

So it has been a crazy crazy month. Two orchestra project, even more concerts (you can check them on our Academy's youtube channel) and it doesn't go without practise, of course. That's why I haven't been on here much, I apologise.
But even though there were no new posts here it doesn't mean that I didn't make/do anything worth writing about. I made around 10 toiletry/make-up bags, some for gifts, some just because I was asked to. I really like them, they're just so cute. Hope you do to.

If you know me well enough and we're close friends you can expect one like this for a birthday or something. Otherwise just order away and check my facebook page for all the possibilities and discounts. :)
