It's a very easy recipe that you can quickly throw together in the morning. Simply combine the oats, flax seeds and salt in a pan with one decilitre of Chocolate Almond Milk (or any other chocolate plant based milk) and two decilitres of water. When it's almost done, I add half a mushed banana, before serving it and topping it off with the other half. I usually enjoy my porridge with some almond milk and a cup of green tea!
It's days like these, when I get some time for myself and just roam around London, that I realise how lucky I am to have ended up here! It's such a beautiful city, and there are so many places that I have yet to discover.
Since last time we saw each other I have graduated London College of Fashion and I am now contemplating whether to stay in London or go home. This city has given me so much, and I am not yet ready to give up on it (even though all my friends have and I’m the last one standing). Hopefully I find something I feel is worth sticking around for a bit longer, but if not I'll just go home, save some money and get ready for new adventures.
I am currently job-hunting; anything to make my life go around, pay my bills and keep my stomach filled. It feels weird trying to start from scratch in a city I already know. Last time I posted on here I had a life (sort of), I did exciting things and projects and I had friends. Probably the biggest reason to why I took a pause from blogging was the lack of time in between studying, hanging out with my friends and sleeping. Now? I have all the time on my hands, and so, I decided to start blogging again!
Blogging is something I’ve done for years and years on and off, and in a situation like this, when everything feels so uncertain, it feels good to have blogging as a sort of “safe space”. I have my readers, my schedule (hopefully I’ll keep to it) and something creative to keep my mind busy.
If you’re a new reader, welcome! And if you’re one of my lovely old readers coming back to discover what I’ve been up to, I’m happy to see you again. If you’re London based, hit me up for a coffee and some blog-talk, I’d love to meet some new people!
Hopefully you’ll stay with me, and I’ll promise to deliver some exciting posts on lifestyle, fashion, beauty, and of course food!
Until next time!
In a food processor, combine all the ingredients until they reach desired consistency. I like my dates to be smooth but the almonds and oats to give some texture, so therefore I add the nuts and oats a few seconds after the dates. When done, shape them into ping-pong ball sized balls. Keep in an airtight container in the fridge! The perfect snack before or after a workout, whilst studying or when you're just craving something sweet.
For breakfast today though I decided to go with something of my own creations. Some left over berries in the freezer from yesterday's dessert made a perfect berry oatmeal breakfast today. It's the easiest breakfast to make, and so delicious! I just mixed 1,5 dl of oats with water and berries and put it on the stove for about five minutes. I topped it off with some more berries and almonds. Yum!
