Dancers and Dogs

Tuesday, March 20, 2018

Early last year, Kelly and Ian, who are dance photographers, started this adorable project of snapping photos of dancers and dogs. Their goal is to reach 100 dancers and 100 dogs, but the main reason for this collaboration is to show people a lighter side of ballet and make people smile. I love this to pieces, you?

P.S: This.
P.P.S: That.


Cheers to the spring equinox! Peeking outside, it doesn't quite look like spring yet, but I hear that it's not long before it will truly arrive. Ah, and when it does I'm planning to take full advantage of it. You? As for me, I'm looking forward to a full spring rebootasparagus sandwiches on repeat, soft morning spring light showing up in our flat and making a batch of this lilac body oil - it's a keeper.

Now, your turn:)

P.S: This.
P.P.S: That.

According to all the fashionable Londoners, this lippy in 'control' is the 'it' hue for spring. I've just got it and I'm smitten! Its brick red colour and seductive ultra-matte texture makes it the only lippy I want to wear right now. Try it!

Spring Trend: Chunky Sneakers

Thursday, March 15, 2018

The go-to Scandinavian girls' shoe trend is going to be huge this spring. Supposedly, the easiest way to wear those chunky sneakers is by pairing them up with a feminine dress or wide-leg pants. I'm not totally sure about them yet, but I am tempted to try them out.

What do you think? Are you game?

P.S: 100 years of fashion in 2 minutes.
P.P.S: Midi-goodness.

All Natural 3-Ingredient Surface Cleaner

Here is an easy way to replace your go-to (and probably full of chemicals) surface cleaner with something totally natural that actually works. Simply mix 1 part of vinegar with 2 parts of  water and a few sprigs of lavender. Pour it into a glass spray bottle and you're ready to to!

It's that easy. Try it...

P.S: And this.
P.P.S: Plus, that.

Yay! It's Wednesday Cake!

Wednesday, March 14, 2018

Remember when two weeks ago I told you about the best cookies EVER? Well, I just made the best healthy cookies EVER! Yup, they are both incredible, just the other one is made with tons of butter and sugar, while this one above is made with oats, brown rice flour and coconut oil. Yup, they are totally vegan and incredibly indulging. They have the most amazing texture and they are my favourite cookies right now!

So, try them and let me know what you think. Deal?

The Best Oat Chocolate Cookies
(Recipe by Deliciously Ella. Makes about 20 x 20 grams vegan cookies)

- 190 grams  ground oats
- 50 grams brown rice flour (or plain flour)
- 90 grams chocolate chips
- 60 ml. almond milk
- 60 grams coconut sugar
- 25 ml. maple syrup
- 45 grams coconut oil
- 2 grams baking powder
- pinch of salt

Set the oven to 180°C. Blitz the oats into a flour, then mix it with the rice flour, coconut sugar, baking powder and salt. Gently melt the coconut oil (don’t let it boil) and pour it into the dry mix with the maple syrup and almond milk. Stir well, using your hands to get a cookie-style sticky mix, then mix in the chocolate chips. Roll into small balls, flatten onto a lined baking tray. Bake for about 10 mins. They’ll still be pretty soft when you take them out of the oven and they’ll set in the time it took to bake. Ta-dah!

P.S: Fancy more?
P.P.S: Plus this...

Solo Bike Parking

Agata lives in Amsterdam. Besides snapping photos of its beautiful sights, she has an eye for spotting solo bikes waiting patiently for their owners to return, in the most swoonworthy parts of the city.

Ah, those photos make me want to dust off my old green bike and get it going again. Do you bike?

P.S: Bikes + flowers.
P.P.S: 'You see more when you draw.'
