RECIPE: LOADED VEGAN JACKET SWEET POTATOES to please even meat-lovers!

I don’t see myself as a militant vegan. Sure, I think the world would be a better place if everybody started eating (more) plant-based foods and reduced or diminished their animal products intake, but I understand that that transition isn’t easy. One of the things I like to do therefore, is show meat-eaters how tasty…

RECIPE: VEGAN MANGO CHEESCAKE – light and airy, with passionfruit

I love baking cakes, and even though I like a rich chocolatey cake or cakes with lots of spices, I think summer asks for lighter and fruitier options. I especially love the flavour of tropical fruits like mango and passion fruits. I think they go well into a fruity and light dessert with a mousse…

REVIEW: Urban Decay Vice lipstick – blackmail

I love a good liquid lipstick. Previously, I have reviewed several lipsticks by high end and drug store brands. Some of my favourites include the YSL liquid lipstick (which I unfortunately cannot find anymore, which I am pretty sad about) and the Dior liquid lipstick. However, these lipsticks, in contrast to the drug store, two-step…

VEGAN LEMON POPPY SEED CUPCAKES WITH LEMON CREAM CHEESE FROSTING

I love the fresh smell of zested lemons. The freshness just really lifts my spirit. One of my favourite flavour combinations with lemons is poppyseeds. Not only do the flavours go well together, I think that incorporating poppy seeds in recipes adds that extra bit of crunch. In this cup cake recipe, I used quite…

VEGAN OIL-FREE APPLE PIE GRANOLA

I love granola’s, but I am quite picky. I don’t really like raisins, dates or cranberries, and I prefer my granola not too sweet. I do however like some crispiness and some nuts. I did like the Eat Natural granolas, but they tend to be made with honey (why?) and they tend to be really…

DIY: Knit Spanish slippers

Call me boring, but I like giving (and receiving) socks. I showed you before how to knit baby socks or booties, which I still think make a perfect (baby shower) gift. However, my brother-in-law recently celebrated his birthday and I didn’t know what to gift him, but I noticed he always wore slippers or warm…

NAIL ART: sky blue geometric nail art

We are still in lock down and I still have too much time and too little to do. That is why this week, I am presenting another nail art design. I saw this beautiful Herôme nail polish in my nail polish drawer and I just had to use it. To be honest, the way it…

VEGAN ICE CREAM REVIEW: Oppo very almond berry

I love trying out new vegan products, especially ice cream. I have previously tried several kinds of (low calorie) ice cream, some with more success than others. I enjoyed the Alpro 360 flavours that I tried (see HERE), while the different Halo top flavours were less of a hit (especially the salted caramel flavour, see…

SPRING NAIL ART: daffodil nails

Being in quarantine means you can make time to do the things (inside) that you normally don’t make time for. For me, one of those things is painting my nails. Plus, not being able to go into work/university means I am actually allowed to wear nail polish as well 😉 For this weeks nail art…
