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!
Lush Bubblegum Lips scrub
Dry lips is a forever returning problem this time of year, but this lip scrub from lush is a serious life saver! It's made out of natural ingredients, and smells so good.
Soap & Glory Energy Boosting Face Massage Mini Mitt
This small, pink face massager from Soap & Glory is a new addition to my skincare collection. I use it pretty much every morning and evening together with my cleanser, and it leaves my skin feeling fresh and cleansed. If you're like me and think regular face scrubs can be a bit messy, this is the perfect little thing for you! It'll make wonders to your face together with your favourite cleanser.
Make Up Forever Gentle Cleansing Milk
Anything moisturising will be a go-to product during this time of year. This cleanser is my favourite to use in the morning, since I feel like my deep cleansing cleansers can be a bit too harsh to use that time of day. Unlike may other moisturising cleansers I've tried, this one cleanses and moisturises without leaving the face feeling oily.
As the sometimes stereotypical girl I am, I've fallen back into loving pink. That has become very obvious the last six months. Not only have I incorporated the colour in my room and wardrobe, but it's the most commonly used colour in all my creative projects. I have to admit that I've probably become a little obsessed, but then it's not the worst kind of obsession one could have (I think?). As one of my last projects for my Creative Visual Communication class at London College of Fashion, I made an entire presentation on the colour. Thus, I thought I'd share some of the pictures with you, and hopefully there's someone else out there who loves pink just as much as me and will appreciate this post!
I'm sure I'm not the only one who sometimes (always*) dream about living in a pink house with pink doors and pink interior. Or am I?
These saffron buns are a bit time consuming, but literally so easy to make! This is the second time I'm making them, and you an find the previous recipe I did here.
1. Grind the saffron in a mortar with 1 teaspoon of sugar Add the rum or water and stir. Let stand 30 minutes.
2. Cut the butter into cubes. Crumble the yeast and mix it with the milk, butter and saffron plus water/rum in a bowl or a food processor with a dough hook.
3. Add remaining sugar, salt, and flour. Work the dough for 15 minutes in the machine or 20 minutes by hand. Let it rise under a cloth for 60 minutes.
4. Put the dough on a workbench. Knead it lightly and bake out the dough into saffron buns. Decorate with raisins!
5. Let the buns rise on a plate under a cloth for about 30 minutes.
6. Preheat the oven to 225 ° C.
7. Brush the buns with beaten egg or milk. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes. Let cool on a rack under a cloth.
