Brownielicious in a mug!

Hello, lovies! Today I’m bringing you something completely new to the website. A recipe! (Are you as excited as I am?) I love cooking and baking and trying new things. But I love quick and tasty things even more! The only thing I’ll be willing to wait a few hours for is my dad’s roasts. Yumm! However, I’m not my dad and I haven’t mastered the oven things yet, so today I’ll show a 30 seconds brownielicious recipe! Yup! 30 seconds! (Maybe a few more, okay? But it all depends on your cutting skills!)


All you need:

🌷 a mug

🌸 brownie (bought – I use the brand Brossard, which is the best brownie I’ve ever tasted!)

🌹 chantilly

🌺 vanilla custard (you can find it in any supermarket)

🌻 chocolate bar (I use 95% cacao)

The How to:

Cut the brownie in squares and put them in your mug. These can be the size you prefer. I don’t like them too big nor too small because I love the taste of chocolate to pop in this heart-warming mug. Add the vanilla custard to the mug again, add as much as you like. I just cover the amount of brownie I’ve used because I don’t love custard but if you do, go ahead and pour yourself a full mug of it! Squish some chantilly and grate some of the chocolate bar on top and voilà! 30 seconds later, it’s ready to enjoy!

The easiest and quickest yummylicious thing you’ll try! This is great for when I’m in need of a little chocolaty treat or when someone comes over and I need to whip up something fast!

Good tastings, catreaders! If you decide to try it, show me how yours looked!

The countdown for Christmas Eve and New Year’s has started and you still don’t have a clue of what you’ll be wearing? Today, I bring you some inspo! I’ve been fiddling around some websites so that I could put together some ideas or inspiration for everyone. And I have suggestions that suit all budgets!

I’ll start with my favourite online shopping website of all: Asos! Asos always has a big price range so it fits everyone’s pockets! Now, this is going to be remarkably difficult to choose from hundreds of outfits but I gathered a few that I found would please most girls.

Now going into another favourite of mine (especially because of its amazing prices!), it’s Bonprix! The thing I love the most about Bonprix is that it allows you to check an entire outfit you see the models wearing. In most websites, you have to look for each item on its own but here you can ‘shop the look’. From Bonprix I chose 9 different outfits that I find delicious but casual enough for you to wear them at your in-laws house. From the cheapest to the most expensive one – my favourite is no. 5!

My third choice is SheIn. This one is the cheapest you’ll find for good quality. I think they have beautiful clothes and the prices really are welcoming! The only thing I could say I’m not totally in love with SheIn is that their clothes are very ‘trendy’. Meaning: I couldn’t find many pieces that I would see myself or any of my other friends wearing just they a little teenag-y. However, I found these following items very interesting and completely wearable during the holidays!

And this is all for today, folks! Hopefully you found something you love or some inspo for your festive outfits. I have to say my favourites are no. 1 from Asos, no. 5 from Bonprix and no. 1 from SheIn! What are yours?

Let me know! Let it snow fashionably, catreaders!

14 promises

Today’s a special day. Every 14 of every month I feel the most grateful. Almost 36 months ago I met a few people that would completely change my life. Almost 36 months ago my soul was broken, and I can’t say it’s fixed now, but I can say these people took their time and effort and filled me in with colours and happiness and life. I wish I could write you all an Ode because you deserve to be sung at, celebrated and cared.

36 months ago I made new friends, best friends. You know, sometimes your life feels like you’ve got nowhere to go, feels like this big circle you can’t escape from and you’re forced living the same moments, to take the same breaths over and over again. Well, 36 months ago, I broke the cycle.

I first saw you in a cloudy day. We were surrounded by laughter and new feelings and I couldn’t stop thinking how odd you were. The way you moved and sprung around the room made me feel queasy. How on earth could someone be so at easy with all new unfamiliar people? I remember you drinking your beer and fidgeting your hands up and down the glass and touching your shirt. How could you be so carefree yet restless? It’s funny looking back. Now I know all your gestures, I know when you’re uncomfortable and the way you keep touching your hair or moving in your seat when you’re stressed. And the awfully odd sound you make when you’re fake laughing.

You were sitting next to me when my hand inadvertently touched yours. I immediately felt my blood pumping fast, my whole body lit. A spark of electricity ran through me and I knew then, I wanted you close and I wanted you forever. I felt your eyes on my lips and I’m not sure until now if there were any other people in that crowded pub.

*

And the way you coloured in my breaths, the way you hold me when I’m about to fall or when I’m on the ground, for that and so much more, an entire Ode would never be enough for you. In these 36 months I learnt about myself more than I have ever learnt. I will help you find yourself the same way I found myself. I will always be on your side, guiding you through rainbows and storms. I will make you smile with my peculiar jokes.  I will listen whenever you feel like speaking. I will find the words you can’t speak. I will allow you to grow and become the amazing person I know you are. I will always believe in you. I will let you catch your dreams and live them with you. I will cook for you. I will show you exciting new worlds. I will hold your hand and walk next to you. I will warm your feet when they’re cold. I will be here every day. And, I will say yes.

14 promises turned into love and friendship. And yes, we are a circle now, but only you are capable of bringing small rays of sunshine into ours. Thank you.

 

See you next time, catreaders! 🙂

‘Tis Christmas! (soon)

‘Tis the holiday season! “Joy to the world, The Lord is come”

In this magic season, I always struggle with what presents to offer everyone – whom to offer something, what and how much should you spend on one’s gift! These questions haunt me since early November all the way through January – yes, because surprise guests equals to surprise present offering! Because of so, this year I decided to look for easy simple ideas that were suitable for anyone but still dreamy!

* My Little Box

This is a beautiful box that contains a few beauty products and it changes its contents every month. It’s a subscription box but you can buy it without a membership. This could be a great gift for someone you’re not expecting to give one or a friend. I mean, anyone, really! (16.90€)

* La Thé Box

For the tea lovers, I think this unique box is just to die for! I can experiment new flavours and the latest box comes with a cup! My favourite is Tea Time Alice (comes with a 65% chocolate bar! Eeek!). Again, great gift for someone you just weren’t expecting anything from. (24.90€)

La-Thé-Box

* Belgibeer

Now, I love beer and I would be extremely pleased with this present! This is another subscription box that you can buy just once for you or to offer. This one has 8 beers of 4 varities, a corkscrew, a magazine to learn more about beers, a beer glass and more. Buy it now for your beer connoisseur! (27.90€)

belgi-beer-avril-5

* Red Hot 2017 Calendar

Ol’ hail ginger men! If this one doesn’t warm up your cold Christmas days, I don’t know what will. Keep this one for your best friend or sister, or anyone that will appreciate the ginger goodness! I couldn’t wait for a pity soul to get it for me, so I just ordered it today! 2017 will surely be Red Hot in our house! (44.77€)

* A smartbox!

I have to say these are my favourites to get! Smartboxes are the best presents ever created because even though you have to choose the kind of experience you’re offering, the receiver still has the chance of choosing from 99+ activities! We got one last year and we chose to spend a night in a beautiful hotel next to the beach with spa and meals included! Isn’t that amazing? From food experiences to massages and horse riding, you can choose anything. The prices start at 29.90€.

And there you have! These are some of my choices this year. Hope you enjoy choosing and buying them! Happy holidays, catreaders!

Principium II

Oh, so here we go. I’ve finally decided to join the thousands of soul searchers, adventure drinkers and poets in the dark. Now, I don’t and could n.e.v.e.r catalog myself as one of these, but I do like talking. I like talking way too much – just ask my boyfriend! To soothe his pain of endless hours pretending to listen to his hormonal girlfriend, I’ve decided I’ll write it all here.

 

 

I love writing as much as I love talking. And I love reading too. Arts. Makeup. Cooking. Dancing. Interesting new ideas. I love it all. And I want to share some of these with you. Whoever you are, wherever you might be, welcome to my world!


And I would go to the ends of the earth/ Cause, darling, to me that’s what you’re worth/ Where you lead, I will follow.

See you soon, catreaders!

Principium!
