Valentine’s day

Hi everyone!

Me and my husband do not really celebrate Valentine’s day as 14th February is his birthday… so he hates that all the cakes are heart-shaped and red hearts everywhere. Valentine day celebration comes from US, still not the most common in Europe… so we only get flowers or bonbons.

So even it is his day, we often have a slightly hint of Valentine:

No men on the Earth would say no to a nice black lace lingerie. This year I am looking for a Triangle bra and some nice panties:

perfume: a perfume has to be sexy, mysterious and classy for the night. I love Lancome: Tresor Midnight Rose or Carolina Herrera 212 Rose- I think I will choose that this year.

Red lipstick: my hubby does not fan of makeup, but he really likes the red lips with nothing else (honestly: seems like nothing else) I will go for my classic MAC: Ruby Woo

Rosé: we do like wines, drinking a glass of quality wine is just our way to finish up a nice day. Dry, fruity (berries) rosé always a nice choice for Valentine’s here my choices from Hungary (if you visit our country you should taste our wines as well).

If you are in Budapest on the 14th February, here is my top Concierge recommendations for Restaurants with special menu:

  • Legenda Dinner Cruise: two and a half hour candle lit dinner with your loved on the World Heritage Site of Danube Banks.
  • Zona Bistro by the Chain Bridge with a spectacular view, amazing food (even selected by her side and his side) and my favourite Kristinus wines.
  • Callas Café and Restaurant: if you wish to have something more classical in the city centre by the Opera

Shopping Guide (Budapest Alternative)

As being a Concierge, I often face with the question where I can do shopping in Budapest instead of Shopping Malls or looking for local products.

Yesterday (21rst)-I had a shopping day, unfortunatelly I do not have a vlog camera (I should- so that can add to my wishlist). Below I draw my route and of course there will be a lot more shops in the city than mentioning.

I want all till Opera Metro Station and get into the side street from Andrássy Avenue to :

CINQ FILLES – Paulay Ede str. 44.

The most beautiful boxes I have ever seen, really high quality and it is also ideal for home decor. They do sell boxes, premium bonbons, sweets, wines and candles. I was come to buy their own products only.

look the shopwindow:

PROJEKT SHOWROOM- Paulay Ede str. 29.

It is a temporary- pop up store- which now focus on Christmas, so they do have little books, stationeries, cheramic, gastro gifts, toys and bags ect. They have Greek and Gorgeous, KAP makeup or The Ordinary the things which I was coming for.

THE GARNER STUDIO- Paulay Ede str. 18.

It is a clothes store, with local designer brand like Tomcsanyi, YKRA or limited edition of Tisza or international Brand like Toms. It has a retro feeling from the ’80s and ’90s Eastern Europe, which is pretty cool, this shopping bag reminds me my grandfather’s ones used at the Market in the early ’90s.

LAURA VIRÁG- Király str.28.

Shabby chic flower shop with the most beautiful and fresh flowers in town. Really love their creativity, joy and athmosphere of the shop.

WONDERLAB- Vere Pálné str 3.

Also a concept store with 30 local designers for jewely, clothes, bags, dog equipment, they are my old time favourite. Really chatty place and prices are not so high for quality.

BORTÁRSASÁG- multiple locations

If you are a wine lover and you prefer quality, that’s your place. If you are a foreign visiting the city and looking for some good wines that is the place and they do have knowledge what they sell! I should turn back soon.

Stay turned for my gifts haul…
