Vegan Food in Glasgow pt. 2 – exploring the city

A new day in Glasgow! I am here visiting my sister and I want to see more of the city, so we decided we would go out for breakfast, after which we would take a hike around the city to see some highlights. To start our day off, we went to Turadh in Glasgow, which…

RECIPE: Super grain buddha bowl with rainbow carrots

I am clearing out my pantry and somewhere to the back I found some dry spelt and dry buckwheat. Seeing that it was not a huge amount, I thought I would throw them together into a buddha bowl! This bowl is packed with fibre and veggies, and the sesame and soy sauce add a nice…

Festive NAIL ART IDEA: pink sprinkles

Do you have anything to celebrate? Or are you looking for a festive touch? This sprinkles-inspired nail art reminds me of sprinkles on a cake or confetti. The colour scheme could even be modified to fit a themed party! I personally chose colours that reminded me of a pink birthday cake; I do however think…

RECIPE: quick fennel red curry bowl

I personally think everything looks cuter in a bowl; Buddha bowls, sushi bowls, poke bowls, you name it. That is why, when I made this curry, I thought I would serve it in a bowl-style. I think the different components, rice, curry and vegetables, look so fresh and tasty together! For this vegetable curry I…

REVIEW: Fleur de Force eyebrow pallet #browdeforce

I never used to go to TK-Maxx, seeing that I didn’t have one anywhere near where I lived growing up. This week however I was grocery shopping near Bijlmer Arena in Amsterdam and I came across. Seeing that I like a bargain, I couldn’t resist going in. I wasn’t actually planning on buying anything, but…

Nail art idea: daisies, perfect for spring!

It is spring again! I was only on a winter sport holiday two weeks ago, where it was minus 12 degrees Celsius, but now back in Holland it is around plus 12 degrees; Spring is here. Spring is a perfect time to start painting your nails with brighter or softer colours. To start my nail…

RECIPE: vegan banoffee pie, not raw, just delicious!

I wanted to make a banoffee pie for my parents this weekend but taking a look on Pinterest I only found vegan recipes for raw pies. Not that there is anything wrong with raw, but sometimes you don’t want a date caramel and date-nut crust. Sometimes you want crunchy biscuits with dulce de leche, banana…

RECIPE: pasta with creamy avocado sauce and roasted veg

Most of the times I have my pasta with tomato sauce, like arrabiata, but sometimes it is nice to switch things up a bit. Seeing that I had a leftover avocado from making spring rolls (you can find that recipe HERE), I wanted to try and make a creamy avocado sauce. This sauce is very…

RECIPE: sweet potato, avocado and wasabi spring rolls

I love any food that turns a complex array of flavours into a handheld treat. That is why I love making spring rolls; they pack different flavours in a bitesize healthy package. They are super versatile, being fully customizable to your desires. For this recipe I chose to combine the sweetness of sweet potato with…

SUPER CUTE: a handmade polar bear baby set – newborn

I am nowhere near getting pregnant or having children myself, but I love making tiny baby clothes. I think it is also perfect for beginners to start of with baby clothing, since you don’t have to commit yourself to a very long project. I also think that hand knit baby clothes make the perfect gift…

THE PERFECT BABY SHOWER GIFT: hand knit baby booties

I recently had a knitting workshop at a local knitting supplies shop, when I saw these baby booties standing around. I immediately fell in love with them, and of course wanted the pattern. They gave me the pattern without any payment and without a source, so I will link the site from the shop HERE….

MEAL PREP: mango curry with marinated tempeh and rice

I love having a warm lunch during the week when I am at university. I don’t like studying all day and having just bread to look forward to. That is why I tend to meal prep my lunches on Sundays or Mondays for the week. Normally I make a big batch of something and just…

NAIL ART IDEA: New Year’s Eve fireworks and year nails

Since I painted my nails with snowflakes for Christmas, which you can find here: Snowflake nails, I have fallen back in love with nail art again. Therefor I wanted to paint my nails for New Year’s Eve with 2017 and 2018 on them. Because I think fireworks are an essential part of the night, I…

Vegan food in Glasgow pt 3 – to the airport and back home

Unfortunate, after two days in Glasgow, it was time for me to head home again. Seeing that I had a transfer on Birmingham, this took me an entire day. I thought I would take you through the new foods I tried on my journey, to also show you that the UK is a very vegan-friendly…

REVIEW: the pink or ruby KitKat #mybreak

I was just shopping for some snacks at my local convenience store (the AH to go), when I came across the chocolate section, a.k.a. the danger zone. Even though I normally prefer dark chocolate, because of the flavour and because it is slightly healthier, I couldn’t resist this pink KitKat. Something in me just wanted…
