Popoln Piknik

Iz česa sestoji popoln piknik? Glede na to, da se koncept piknika običajno vrti okoli peke na žaru sta glavni sestavini uspešnega piknika brez dvoma kvaliteten žar (na primer klasični žar na oglje Weber model s prepoznavno srčasto silhueto) in odlična hrana (recimo linija mesnih dobrot Perutnine Ptuj, ki so povsem brez aditivov in e-jev). Postrežbo dopolnimo z osvežilno pijačo; gospodje se bodo razveselili klasičnega špricerja, gospodične pa hladnega roseja Pinky Chick; pijačo hranimo v hladilni torbi; vse skupaj pa servirajmo na ljubkem akrilnem priboru. Žar mojster si zasluži poseben predpasnik, pred sončnimi žarki pa se gostje lahko zaščitijo s slamnatimi klobuki. Veliko vlogo pri vzdušju na dogodku igra tudi ambient; goste lahko posedemo na udobno vrtno garnituro; prostor pa okrasimo s svetlobnimi verigami.

Popoln ponedeljek Na Škaluc

Skoraj vse ˝Punce po svoje˝ (ena še uživa na Baliju) smo se preteklo nedeljo končno spet uspele uskladiti za skupni izlet, tokrat  mimo Celja v hribe nad Laškim, na idilično posestvo Na Škaluc, kjer so nas pričakali sonce, cvetoče drevje, konjički, prijazna dobrodošlica in pravi podeželski mir.Pot iz Ljubljane nas je z našim sila udobnim BMW-jem vodila mimo Celja, kjer smo se sprehodile po centru in si ogledale nove simpatične kavarne, ki so v zadnjem času pognale kot gobe po dežju. Center Celja se po letih mrtvila počasi prebuja in opaziti je možno številne nove butike, ljubke kavarne kot sta Užitkarna Beli Vol in Oaza ter druge dejavnosti (Odprta Kuhna), ki v mesto privabljajo številne obiskovalce ter mu dajejo urban ritem.Priznati moram, da sem tokrat po dolgem času v vožnji uživala kot sovoznica; torej na žalost težko kaj rečem o občutku ob upravljanju BMW-jeve zveri, sem se pa enkrat za spremembo popolnoma sprostila (v udobju širokega usnjenega sedeža to nikakor ni bilo težko) in si ogledovala mimo bežečo naravo. Obisk Celja smo zaključile s sprehodom ob Savinji ter se nato odpravile prosti našemu cilju – Posestvu Na Škaluc.
Na Škaluc je možno bivati v pravi hišici na drevesu, ki je opremljena v prijetnem domačem slogu z modernim pridihom in ponuja čudovit razgled na gozd. Zgodba posestva je precej zanimiva – sedanji lastniki so kupili nekdaj znamenito kmetijo ter jo sedaj postopoma prenavljajo in ji dodajajo vedno več zanimivih turističnih dejavnosti. Romantiko preteklosti in počasen tempo podeželskega življenja združujejo s sodobno ponudbo in sproščenim gostoljubjem, vse to pa zavijejo v popoln okvir pristne narave.
Iz drevesne hišice do hiše s savno in jacuzzijem vodi romantična gozdna potka; med savnanjem in kopeljo pa lahko uživamo v čudovitem razgledu.
Posest Na Škaluc se ponaša tudi z manjšim barom, opremljenim v tradicionalnem slovenskem slogu. Tu se gostje lahko okrepčajo s češkim pivom Staropramen, kar je v okolišu lokalno najbolj znane pivovarne sicer prava (in dobrodošla) redkost. Velika gugalnica na vrtu kar vabi k sproščanju, branju knjig ali pa samo strmenju v nebo. Vožnja po ovinkasti cesti je bila v BMW-jevem avtomatskem lepotcu prav lepo tekoča. Sončni zahod Na Škaluc je prav sanjski! Hišni maček dimenzij divjega risa je pravzaprav prijazen in se prav rad pusti počohljati za ušesi.
Hrana na posestvu je preprosta in okusna, privoščimo pa si jo lahko v kamniti jedilnici s kaminom ali pa kar na travniku.

Za našo žejo so s svojimi napitki poskrbeli pri Blender Groupu, me pa smo bile še posebej navdušene nad RiRi kokosovo vodo in Nobe Aloe Vera. Na Šlakuc imajo tudi konjičke, ki so prav radovedni in z veseljem pohlastajo ponujene regratove lučke! Pred savno je lično urejen kotiček za sproščanje kjer smo z Majo in Valentino klepetale o novih čevljih, službah in tem, kako pogrešamo Katko ter upamo, da se nam kmalu pridruži na kakšnem izletu!

Stara Fabrka

2017-03-11-13-00-39

˝Punce po svoje˝, kot smo se samo oklicale, si rade privoščimo kakšen vikend izlet, ki se seveda konča ob bogato obloženi mizi. Pretekli vikend smo za destinacijo izleta po divji petkovi zabavi izbrale bližnje Domžale, kjer nas je očarala restavracija Stara Fabrka. Mlada, entuziazma polna ekipa zaposlenih  z veliko ljubezni počasi prenavlja prostore in pripravlja odlično hrano s poudarkom na lokalnih sestavinah (in imenih jedi). Me smo si privoščile sočne hamburgerje, svežo solatko in hrustljav krompirček, k vsem jedem pa se je odlično podalo lokalno izdelano kraft pivo Mister. Seveda smo hrano pred jedjo ujele v objektive (da vam naredimo lušte), se navduševale nad ličnimi emajliranimi posodami, nato pa smo se prav ne-damsko napokale in si obliznile prste! dsc_0889

P.S. s prihodom pomladi pri Stari Fabrki odpirajo tudi letno teraso, tako da se bo med jedjo dalo tudi sončiti!

Girls weekend :: Punce po svoje

kgmWhen i imagine a girls trip i always think of relaxed time spent eating, drinking, laughing, taking photos and gossiping. As my luck would have it this past weekend was spent doing just that with the best group of girls i could wish for. The main reason for the trip was the fact that i wanted to show off the apartment i designed in Slovenia’s most famous ski resort of Kranjska Gora so we stayed there and visited as many local sights as possible. 16143981_10154551113294877_505110118_nOur girls trip started on a snowy Friday afternoon, when i was especially grateful to be driving our Mercedes Cla Shooting brake for it’s safety and certain grip of the road. Unfortunately, due to the snowy road i had to wait untill our return journey on Sunday to fully test  it’s speed limits but i have to say we felt very comfortable the entire time. Also, a Mercedes Benz full of girls is guaranteed to attract a lot of attention, especially if the driver (me) is a pro at parallel parking (ok, so the bystanders don’t have to know i had all of the fancy sensors and cameras guiding me, haha)cropmAfter arriving to the apartment, the first thing i did was light the fire and then we ate, drank gin&tonics and bubbly while gossiping until the early hours.16117364_10154551103744877_1497767835_nKranjska Gora is known to welcome it’s visitors with tons of fun outdoor activities such as skiing, ice skating, hiking and mountain biking, plus there are a lot of mesmerizing natural sights nearby. Since we only had two days to spent there we decided on visiting Laghi Di Fuisine and Lake Jasna, but let me assure you Zelenci natural reserve, Planica or (frozen) Peričnik waterfall can be aqually breathtaking. kg_175The perfect combination of moutains,  snow and sun.

kg_149Cosy afternoons were spent reading in bed!kg_160Now, i do realize imagining 6 girls sharing one bathroom might seem impossible but we made it work!

Love you all!

Hello Moto

 

dsc_0196When i was in high school i used to own a Motorola flip phone (oh, sooo cool, i know!) but later on we all kind of forgor about the brand, which has recently (after being taken over by Lenovo) rebranded itself as Motorola Mobility and issued a Moto Z family of smartphones that cater to all different types of users. I’m now a lucky owner of the Moto Play Z model which is great for my needs and i’ll try to explain why….dsc_0144I’d love to go into details about the technical specifications but i could never understand any of those so i’ll just say thah my Instagram game got way better since i got it thanks to it’s awesome camera (the front camera is also great – it even has a flash, which comes in really handy when taking a night time selfie). Now imagine if i splurged on the Moto Mod Hasselbrand True Zoom lens attachment! I guess that purchase would allow me to stop carrying my heavy dslr camera to furniture salons/construction sites which would be great…
dsc_0178Anyways, Moto Z Play is a perfect phone choice fo users who appreciate a useful phone with a long lasting (and fast charging) battery, a big screen that is perfect for writing emails and (i can’t emphasise this enough!) a good camera!

P.s. in case you, my dear readers, are interested in specifications (and can understand them) feel free to read them HERE!

Crème Brûlée Špecial

14633224_1184932741542558_2212986852788809435_oI guess i’m at that age when a perfect Friday night constists of great food, friends, drinks and music – yes, in that particular order. So this past Friday,  me and the girls set out in a search of some grown up fun and were super excited to discover Crème Brûlée Špecial; an event that is held monthly by Surf Insitute at Ljubljana’s legendary Klub Mladinsko. Being an event of intimate nature, Crème Brûlée Špecial is a perfect fusion of culinary expressionism and club atmosphere where guests can unwind after a busy week. In the intimate atmosphere of the club we enjoyed tasting craft beers and thoughtfully prepared food all the while swaying to some funky music. The next Crème Brûlée Špecial is planned for November 11th and i for one can’t wait to see what menu; drinks and musical guest they come up with this time! 14641985_1184933301542502_2565578245835429184_n14556678_1184933894875776_536420467138816642_o14720434_1184933998209099_5832661902785977235_n14711037_1184933588209140_6115985058175541010_o14595579_1184932121542620_4366743813423429311_n14589576_1184932544875911_8543596772820072029_o
