First Plaid of the Year ♥

Hello lovelies!

How are you all? ♥

I enjoyed sleeping in this morning, and after some chores, I thought it's time to blog a little. And for once, in appropriate hours, haha. Today I wanted to share this look from some days ago, when I  went very purple with my look.

Coat: Rukka Jeans: Gina Tricot/DIY Scarf: a gift from my dad Plaid shirt: from my mom Top: Primark Necklace: Gina Tricot Ring: H&M

I really liked how this look was a bit different. I could've done more grunge kind of makeup and shown you also the combat boots I wore, but I promise you that later this year you will be seeing few more this kind of things on the way. And don't worry, I had tights underneath so I didn't get cold.

What do you guys think about this look?

I'm going to go finish a knitting project now, but I'll talk to you soon darlings!

Have a lovely day ♥

Pizza Day ♥

Hello everyone!

How are you all today? ♥

I've been wrapping my head around school stuff for most of the day, and I still need to finish an essay, but I figured I could come and write this little post for you before that. I wanna tell you about one of my new favorite treats, gluten free pizza.

I make my pizzas with gluten free flour mix that's made for pizzas, and it makes one big or two smaller ones. I top mine with tomato puree, cheese, tuna, pineapple and pepperoni. I also add oregano and sometimes add fresh arugula on top of the hot pizza.

The flour mix only requires little water and oil, and then it can be mixed into a dough. After that it's ready to be made into a pizza.

15 to 20 minutes of baking, and fresh goodies are ready to eat. Also, see how my oven needs cleaning? I guess I have a task for the weekend.

I love adding some salad on top of my pizza - not just because I can pretend it's more healthy, but because it tastes and looks better with it. Here I'm using fresh arugula to perfect my meal (wouldn't dream of using any other salad though, but you could use whatever you fancy).

Bonus Tip

If you use pineapple (or any other fruit) to top your pizza, you can use the leftovers to make a delicious and healthy infused water. I made mine into a pineapple and kiwi one, and it was fantastic. I must say I've become a bit addicted to these and could drink them all day every day. I can't wait to try these with fresh berries in the summer.

I really hope you liked this post, and if you have any ideas or wishes for recipes, let me know in the comments so that I can try them out and let you know what I think.

Now I have to get back to my essay, but luckily it's weekend tomorrow so I have more time to blog and do related stuff for a couple of days. I have so, so much to post for you, I just need to find the time to write it all into posts. Hopefully you are at least half as excited as I am. Talk to you again tomorrow!

Have a fabulous day you all ♥

Starry vs. Glitter ♥

Hello my darlings!

How are you all today? ♥

I've been spending a lovely day at home today with my marketing homework and fruit infused water (which is my new favorite think to have between meals), which has been pretty nice. Kinda like having a new weekend right after Monday. Who wouldn't like that?

So today, I wanted to show you these two nail designs I did earlier this month. I'm daring to say I've been more inspired than before with nail art so hopefully I can produce some nice ones for you to see. But let's get to business, shall we?

First up is kind of my NYE mani, but since I wore it more this month, I figured it's 2015 mani already. I really liked the sparkle and the gradient there quite a bit, and I guess it's safe to say this at least kind of looks like a themed mani.

I gotta say that there's just something about the multicolored glitter that I love so, so much! They can make such a cool effect to a design.

The polishes I used for these nails were China Glaze White On White, Grape Pop, Dune Our Thing, One Track Mind, Meet Me Under The Stars and Dancing & Prancing. The star studs are from Born Pretty Store.

The other design is much more light and very simple. I wanted to try out something different but didn't really have the time to do wonders. So I went for this glitter mix n match and quite liked it. Especially the way the gold glitter looks with the blue,

Apologies for the little crackles you may see in the white, I didn't have the time to photo these before the matte top coat made it's mark after over a day's wear. I have no clue what I'm doing wrong there, but if I figure it out, I will share the info.

The polishes I used for these nails were China Glaze White On White, Capacity To See Beyond, Don't Be A Flake and Essie Summit Of Style.

So there you have it, two nail art designs for today. I'm hoping you guys liked these, but I can promise there are better ones to come fairly soon. If you want to get sneak peeks, just follow my social media accounts for more.

Let me know what you think about these nails in the comments below!

Now, it's time for me to go relax and have a hot beverage with a TV show before bed, and tomorrow, I will be writing yet another essay for the whole damn day. Hopefully the hard spring semester will bring plenty of positive results, as I feel kinda very stressed by the work load already. But tomorrow is also pizza day for me, and I will post something about it this week. Yay for food posts?

Have a lovely day you all ♥
