Tuesday, June 30, 2015

It has been a long time since I did a food post, so I've been taking some pictures of my favorite healthy AND DELICIUS breakfast! And yes, healthy food taste also pretty good :D

I mean, not all of them are 100% healthy, but healthier as the original version hahah!

Let's see the ideas/recipes!

1- EXPRESS MILKREIS!

Do you love milkrice? Then this is the perfect recipe for you! It's healthier option, I would rather say: It's 99% healthy haha :D So let's see the recipe:

Ingredients: 

-5 tbsp Rice Flakes
-150 to 200 ml milk -cow milk, soy milk...- (if you want it more like a porridge then, put 150 ml if you want it a bit more milky put 200 to 250 ml)
-1 tbsp brown sugar (You can also use any toher healthy sugar, such as coconut sugar!)
-1ripe chopped banana
-1/2 tsp cinnamon

Instructions:

In a sauce pan put the milk and the rice flakes, let it cook at high heat for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes let it cool for 10 minutes. Mix the sugar with the cinnamon, and topp the milk rice with the chopped banana, and the brown sugar-cinnamon mixture. That's all, an amazing, delicius breakfast!



2- Dried fruits, nuts&Quark Mousse!

It sounds like a difficult recipe, well I have to say you something... It's so easy that I can even call it recipe! You just have to throw the ingredients in a plate and that's all!

 Well let's see the "recipe":

Ingredients:

- Your favorite nuts: I used almonds, cashews, penauts, and other random nuts :D
-Quark Mousse, you can also use vanilla yogurt, or your favorite yogurt actually!
-Dried fruit, I used dried raisins and dried cranberries.

Instructions:

In a plate, put the yogurt and topp with the other ingredients. Yes, that's all! Easy, fast, yummy and healthy!


Then I have almost the same recipe but with granola, fresh strawberries, dried cranberries and vanilla yogurt:



3- Healthy Pancakes for one!

What is better than pancakes for breakfast? Well, when they're yummy and healthier than the original recipe! Let's see this awesome recipe:

Ingredients:

-3 tbsp oat flour (just blend 3 tbsp oats)
-2 eggs *vegan option: 2 Flaxseed eggs)
-Some milk, is desired.
-1 tbsp brown sugar, coconut sugar... (I don't add any because after I topp it with a lot of sweet spreads and so on.. So I don't really need it. But if you don't want to add that much syrup or spreads I do recommend to put some sugar)
-Fresh fruit, sweet toppings, maple syrup, nutella
-Coconut oil to fry, you can use some other healthy oils such as olive oil or whatever oil you like.

Instructions:

In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs until you can see some bubbles. Add the flour, and some milk if the batter is too thick. The batter should be kinda thick, not as thin as a crepe. In a pan at medium heat, put some coconut oil. Add a bit more than 1 tbsp of the batter and let it fry until it's starts to bubble, flip it. Topp wit fresh fruit, and you favorite toppings. Enjoy!



4- Fast and easy french toast for one!

AMAZING, nothing more to say!

Ingredients:

- 2 slices of toast
-1 egg *vegan option: one ripe mashed banana
- Some milk
- As much cinnamon you want
- Your favorite toppings, nutella, brown sugarm syrup...
-Fresh fruit to topp

Mix all the ingredients, dip one toast in the mixture for about 20 seconds each side. Fry the toast in a pan at high-medium heat. Repeat with the other one, topp with your favorite toppings!

Crazy Beauty Hacks every girl should know!

Friday, June 19, 2015

I love discovering new beauty hacks, it's just so exciting!
So, I decided to show you the most crazy beauty hacks! And the good thing, is that almost everybody has these things at home!
So of course, you can try it without going to the drugstore or whatever, wich is always better :D

So, let's start!

Use Baby Powder To Lengthen Your Lashes

Skip the falsies for your next night out! To get crazy long lashes without any glue, apply one coat of your favorite mascara. Then, use a Q-tip to dust baby powder all over your lashes, and apply a second coat of mascara. The baby powder will stick to your lashes to create natural extensions!

Use a Band-Aid to create Will Nail art.

In a #ManicureMonday pinch? Paint a base color on your nails and let it dry completely. Press a Band-Aid with holes on top, then paint on top of it with a contrasting shade of polish. Lift off the Band-Aid, and you'll have a perfectly-spaced polka dot mani!

Use Coffe Grinds As a Body Scrub

If you want to apply self tanner, but are all out of exfoliator, don't settle for a splotchy bronze. Instead, snag some coffee grinds from your kitchen, and mix them with your body wash. They're a natural exfoliant, plus, the caffeine will make your skin glow!

Use Your School ID As A Mascara Shield

Applying mascara to your lower lashes is tricky business—which is why we love this genius trick. Hold your school ID or a credit card underneath your lashes, then go crazy with the mascara. Your lashes will get properly coated, but any excess mascara will end up on the card, instead of your face! Pro tip: clean the card off with a makeup removing wipe before you put it anywhere near your eyes.

Use Glue To Get A Perfect Mani

Have trouble staying completely in the lines when painting your nails? Before you apply polish, paint a thin layer of non-toxic white glue around your cuticles. Peel off the dried glue off when you're done painting, and there will be no cuticle cleanup! Any excess polish that accidentally gets on the skin around your nails will peel off with the glue. This trick is especially useful for intense nail art—like the splatter technique.

Outfits Inspirations: Summer 2015

Saturday, June 13, 2015

The summer is there girls! That means, NEW CLOTHES!!
Of course one of the best things of the summer is the fact that you can wear so many different and beautiful things...
I am mean you can wear a dress without a jacket, isn't that perfect?
I don't know if you have the same problem, but when I have so many outfits in my head I end up wearing a weird outfit.
That's why I want to give you some inspiration for those who don't really know what they want to wear this summer!

Let's start:

1-Basic but with style: 
Love to combine basic clothes and then add accessories, such as that beautiful bag or the hat... Is perfect to meet your friends, or just to go for a walk in the beach!


 2-The sweet girl

All the clothes made of lace are just so sweet and cute! Perfect for all these sweet girls that want to spend a good day with their friends or maby with that boy hahah


3- I don't care what the other think about me.

If you are one of these girls who don't care about anything; this kind of outfit is perfect for you! Different but reaally stylish.

4-College Girl.

If you still have some days of school, this outfit is perfect for you! So sweet and perfect  for the school.


5- Is not that warm.

I know, not in all the countries is thaaat warm to wear shorts. But that does not mean that you can wear beautiful outfits! Such a cool outfit!


6-Basic but cool.
Another basic outfit, but that does not mean that is not cool. I find it some times even better!


7-That Tumblr girl...

This outfit just reminds me of these perfect dressed tumblr girls, so beautiful! 


8- I want summer, now!

Sometimes is warm, but not warm enough to wear completly summer clothes. Just wear a cool cardigan and tadaaa; PERFECT.

What is better than waking up knowing that you don't have to go to school? :D NOTHING!

It's time to show you my morning routine in the weekends or free days, so let's start!

The first thing I do, of course is check the social media! Instagram pretty much, I am so addicted! ( My instagram is https://instagram.com/carla.s.m/ btw :D )

This time I decided to go for a banana-nutella Oatmeal, so yummy!


The recipe: 3/4 cup oats
                   1/2 milk
                   1 big ripe banana
                   2 big tsp nutella
Pour the oats and the milk in a saucepan at high-heat. When it starts to bubble, stir the mashed banana and mix well. When it's in the right concistency for you, take the saucepan out of the heat and add the nutella mix well and tadaaaa! Easy and yummy :D 

Then I go to the toilet and wash my skin with a washgel: 


And then I hydrate my skin with this bodymilk ( I know it's not actually for the face, but it work for me pretty well :D )

How to motivate yourself to workout and live healthier? Hacks To Motivate Yourself to Eat Healthier and Do Sport!

Wednesday, June 3, 2015

Well, girls... We all know, SUMMER IS ALMOST THERE!!
But, hey don't freak out! I am gonna tell you ALL the secrets to stay motivated and don't stop half way!

Let's start!

1- Buy yourself pretty sporty clothes!


And that of course means not just clothes, your whole equipament! Because you know, if you have cool things to do sport you will automatically want to do sport so that you can wear your pretty clothes/use your cool equipament!

2- Discover different cool ways to do sport!


There are so many different ways to move yourself than working out... Skating, going for a walk with listening to good music, swimming, tennis, football, basketball and so so on! Actually yoga is also a good and really interesting way to move yourself! And of course with some one is always better, wich lets me to the next hack:

3- Do sport with your friends!



All the things are better with friends, so sport too! Go for a walk with a good friend, you can talk, laugh, have a good time and also do sport! Is there anything better? You can also goo to the gym, but don't forget to call your friend before! 

EXTRA HACKS:

1- Make your food look incredible!


If your food looks incredible, you won't have the craving to eat that cookie! This is actually healthy, yummy and looks incredible! 

2- Search for the healthier option!


Are you craving ice cream? You can always have the healthier option, wich is nana ice cream! Just made of bananas :D So yummy! Not because it's healthy, means it taste bad! That tastes amazing!

3- Don't go to far!


Hey, one thing is eating healthier and another thing is beeing obessesed with it! I eat healthy, but I have EVERY DAY  a "treat" (for me is not a treat, because I don't forbid me any kind of food!) Eating just clean, and working out every day is also not healthy at all! The key is the balance :D 

Hope you liked the post! I am sorry that I couldn't use my own pictures, but I am so stressed with exams and so on... The next one, will be with my own ones, I swear! Don't forget to follow me on instagram: https://instagram.com/carla.s.m/
