Abdominal Surgery

I just finished a great elective course whith a lot of hands on practice! Over the past few weeks we have practiced the techniques needed for bowel resections, artery ligations, bowel anastomoses and suturing. Our final class was a four hour long surgery on pigs where we removed a section of the small intestine, made an anastomosis and performed a splenectomy. This is by far the best course I have taken yet. I bet people will fight over the spots next year!

Travel guide aka warning: Gellért spa

As my mom visited me in Hungary, I decided to show her around Budapest before going to Pécs. With big expectations we went to Gellért spa to enjoy some “luxury” treatments and look at the famous architecture. I’m not sure where to begin. Have a look:

We booked the “Cleopatra bath” which is a milk and honey bath. I’m not sure if my expectations were too high. Instead of the luxury treatment I had imagined, I got a dirty bathtub with burned out candles on the side that smelled of sour milk. Fine, I thought. I can deal with that.

Submerged in the water I discovered a thick, black hair floating in the water in front of my nose, and that kind of put an end to it for me.

It was my mother’s turn afterwards, and I have to applaud their efficiency!  I would not have believed it possible to change the water and milk and clean up in the 20 minute window between treatments, but they did… Or?

Anyhow. I documented the torn-off, dirty toenail that my mother found floating in there as she backed up in the other end of the bathtub. No more explanations needed: we retreated.

As for the famous architecture, there were a couple of nice windows I guess…

Here’s a post dedicated to my all time favorite handbag: Chanel – Wallet on Chain. It is a little too big to use as a wallet in my opinion, so I wear it as a perfectly sized party handbag. The only thing it fits is some cash, your phone and a bit of makeup (which is all you need)!

I think it’s the perfect Chanel piece because you get the feeling and the look of a classic flap bag without having to pay as much. What do you think?

Hello World!

After a long break from doing what I love the most, I’m finally out exploring the world again! When a rather disturbing discovery removed the one reason that kept me from going anywhere, I basically booked a ticket on the spot. Yesterday was full of events, catching up with old friends over lunch in Brussels. Then I went to Spain at night, and drove straight to my favorite restaurant to order half the menu. I’m hoping to get one day at the beach in Marbella before squeezing in a visit to Gibraltar and then Africa. Eventually I will have to return to school and to Pécs, but right now it feels like old times. The world is the limit, and the only thing that matters is living life to the fullest…

School handbag review: Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM

After realizing that the Kelly Depeche from Hermès was not that convenient for school, I have been looking for a new bag that would fit all my notebooks. I’ve been wanting the Neverfull for months, and finally decided to spend the money I saved on a bag that will last for years!

I am very happy with the purchase! I went to the Louis Vuitton store in Budapest to look at the GM and the medium sized MM. Some people prefer MM, but it doesn’t fit a standing A3 sized paper so I had to get the largest size. I was also really happy that they got it customized with my initials in 5 minutes at the store!

It’s such a beautiful bag, and I chose the Damier Ebene canvas because the leather is a lot more durable than the others. It’s the new version which I think has a much cleaner look inside, and comes with a small clutch that you can use as an extra pocket or on it’s own.
