Big Boobs.

Hello ladies (and gents),

today I want to talk about something a little out of my comfort zone and not food-related. I want to talk about boobs. Big boobs, to be precise.

Golden Turmeric Oatmeal

reading time: 1 min

Being such a big fan of golden turmeric milk, it was just a matter of time before I made golden turmeric oatmeal. It's basically oats cooked in golden milk with a few twists to make a glowing breakfast bowl.

Not too sweet
& nutritious

Friday Favorites - Week 355

Hello everybody, the holiday season has officially ended now, and if I'm being completely honest with you, I'm actually kind of glad because now the linky parties are more versatile again, and not filled with nothing but How-To-Christmas-Decor and other things for Christmas and New Year's
This week we have recipes, house projects, a sewing tutorial, food tips, decor and DIY body care. Something for everyone, I'd say!
Enjoy the party! x

Full Moon Ritual, Meditation & Manifestation

reading time: 6 min

Hello beautiful!

This Thursday, the 11th of January, is a Full Moon. The first full moon of the New Year! Time to say goodbye to old habits, patterns & beliefs. Basically, every day is the right time to let go of old patterns, negative energies and fears. However, the quality of a full moon promotes this sort of cleanse, as is a phase of powerful energy, a time to grow and transform. This time is best suited to set goals, manifest them and let go of the old.

This is not some esoteric wishy-washy moon worshipping ceremony - so do not be disappointed if the moon goddess won't suddenly appear in your room or you don't find yourself surrounded by small magical lights ;) -, but rather a way to spend each month consciously working towards a brighter, clearer, more mindful and purposeful life. How you design your personal full moon ritual, completely depends on your personal preference. It can be whatever you want: as long or as short as you like, as serious or as silly as you're in the mood for, and it can serve any purpose you want. 

Here are some suggestions for a clarifying monthly ritual.

Get Healthy With Me 08

reading time: 3 min

Hello fit friends -
Who is familiar with this scenario? You get up, it's early in the morning, it's cold and dark outside. You go to work or uni, spend all day inside, and when you get home, the sun is already setting again. 

Many of us (me included) let their fitness routine slide during the cold and dark months. After all, we are not going anywhere near the beach in winter anyway, so who cares about our (non-existent) abs, right? - Wrong! If you want to be fit in summer, do not take a fitness break during the winter. In fact, it is particularly important to keep your body fit in winter to avoid getting sick (like me right now, lying in bed with a nasty cold). Your immune system will thank you.

Here are my tips on how to stay fit in the winter!

Friday Favorites - Week 354

First of all: welcome to a brand new year! It's the first Friday Favorites linky party of 2017, and I'm excited for all the things that this year may bring. 2016 was a year of contrasts, and for me it also sounded the bell for a time of transformation and change. However, a time of endings always heralds new beginnings, so I try not to worry too much. I always love the sense of possibility at the turn of a New Year and look forward to finding as many new possibilities and ways to grow as I can in 2017.

Now, I wish you all a good start into this fresh year - enjoy the party!

What To Eat As A Regular Vegan | My Staples

reading time: 5 min

what vegans eat, what i eat, vegan, staples, healthy food

Most of us have made their resolutions for 2017 at the beginning of the year. How many of you plan to go to the gym at least once a week? How many are determined to quit eating junk food? How many want to make a change this year? As noble and great as your resolutions may be - most of us take on too much at once. Instead, commit to something more realistic. Such as an adaptable easy, but healthy and cruelty-free diet.

The best, most ideal (for the human species) diet is a plant-based, low-fat, low-sugar, whole food diet (basically: grains, greens, beans, and a smaller amount of fruits). I call it a "diet" but it's not something temporary. It's a way of eating and living - for life. And it's not as scary as it sounds, I promise ;)

Here are some tips on how to eat healthy long-term, and what I eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner on a regular basis.

Best Books of 2016 | End of Year Book Survey

reading time: 5 min

Hello lovely internet people, I've decided to join Jamie from The Perpetual Pageturner in her End of Year Book survey again. This year I was quite crazy with university / my master thesis (and I still am), but nevertheless I managed to read a total of 37 books. 10 books less than the last book survey I did, but still not bad, considering. So let's get this party started! 

Note: The survey is for books you read throughout the year, no matter when they were published, and is not limited to just books that came out in 2016!

Apple Cider Soda (2 ways)

reading time: 2 min

Hey guys, I took a short Christmas break on Wednesday, but now I'm back, and I'm ready for New Year's :)

If you've found yourself with a soda or sugar addiction, it can be a hard habit to kick. But these simple sparkling apple cider drinks are both healthy and refreshing. They are non-alcoholic because personally I don't enjoy the taste of alcohol, but of course you can make a "grown-up" version of these by adding brandy, rum, Champagne, ginger liqueur or whatnot. I'm also not a huge carbonation fan, but these fizzy drinks actually float my boat (is that even how you use that saying?!).

Anyway. Cheers and a happy new year!

Friday Favorites - Week 353

The last Friday Favorites of the year has come around. Isn't it crazy how fast this year has gone by? I hope you're all ready to wipe off the old year and embrace the new! For me, the next year brings a lot of change, uncertainties, the end of my time at uni, and overall new beginnings. As much as this stresses me out, it also brings a lot of potential for positive changes in my life. Letting go of the old. 

Now for this linky party, I've gone for an amazing recipe for a cranberry sugar scrub in case you still have some cranberries left from Thanksgiving and Christmas that makes for a lovely present to your mom, your sister or just yourself.

Without further ado, here's some inspiration to take into the new year!
