SMOOTHIE BOWL FOR BREAKFAST

hello, you lovely people and welcome back to my blog. I’m so excited for today’s post because as you can see from the thumbnail it’s going to be a smoothie recipe, I’m gonna show you how to make the best and healthiest smoothie bowl EVER which has been a new obsession lately, You can make it however you like it and add whatever ingredients you like, but this is how I like to make mine.

LET’S DO THIS!

You will need:

  • A hand full of frozen strawberries
  • A hand full of oats
  • 1 banana
  • 1Tbs of chia seeds
  • 2 Tbs of milk 

Toppings:

  • Granola
  • Chia seeds
  • Coconut flakes
  • Peanut butter

How to:

you’re gonna start with adding the strawberries and the banana to the blender with 2 Tbs of milk and blend them together till it becomes a thick texture, I personally add a 2 Tbs of milk because I like the smoothie to be thick and frozen but you can add more milk if you like your smoothie to be like liquid texture, after that you’re gonna add the chia seeds, oats, peanut butter, and nuts to the blender and blend everything together wait 1 minute so the ingredients mix together properly and pour everything into your favorite bowl and decorate it with the fruit and topping that you like and enjoy it!

DIY CUSTOM DENIM JACKET

Hello friends and welcome back to my blog. This week’s post is going to be an exciting and creative one, it’s going to be my first DIY post I’m gonna show you how to combine two trendy things  at the moment which are denim and patches in one place by creating a personalized denim jacket and how you can match this jacket to your personal style and aesthetic, just like I did. and to point out that I’m not the first person to do it, there are a lot of videos, photos, and posts about it and each person creates and decorate it how he would like and to match his own personality and turn the jacket from basic and boring to trendy and chic.

LETS START!

You will need:

  • Denim jacket
  • Patches and pins (stuff to decorate by your own style)
  • Iron

HOW TO:

You’re gonna start with arranging the letters or the patches that you want to put on the jacket the way you want before you start to iron them. so in case you didn’t like the way they look you can change their place. After finishing arranging everything the way you like, bring a thin piece of fabric and put it over the patch and start ironing until the patch sticks perfectly so it doesn’t come off, do the same processes over and over until you finish sticking and ironing all the patches on your jacket. and that’s it so easy and yet it will turn out so special I also added some pins on the front of the jacket that I got from Bershka for a little bit of color.

 

Until next time XO

FIRST BLOG ANNIVERSARY!

I still can’t believe that I’m actually writing this post right now, but today is an exciting and special day because as of today my blog has ben published and live on the internet for a year. Now I understand people when they say times flies when you’re having fun and doing what you love.

I just can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I started this amazing journey, I remember a year ago when I was thinking of opening a blog and telling my parents and my friends about this idea, and you can’t imagine the amazing support that I got from them. And now a year later i wanna thank them so much for supporting me and pushing me to make one of the amazing decisions I have made in my life, but although I got the support and everything I need to start my journey I was scared that I’m gonna regret this decision and give up after one of two months, but it turns out that I’m more strong and passionate about this dream than I thought and been blogging not for one or two months I’ve been blogging for a whole entire year.

This whole experience changed me as a person it made more strong and confident in myself than I have ever been before, also I feel like I definitely improved in a lot of stuff, for example, my photography and writing skills are so much now. However this experience had its own struggles, I struggled with finding time to write, take photos and post more often on the blog, because I was busy with exams, studying and recently work. And I can’t just post anything to say that I post often I like to be satisfied with what I post 200%. plus there was sometimes where I felt down and uninspired to do anything but stay in bed all day. Last but not least the struggle of finding new blog post ideas which I find it something not easy at all but at last, I overcame these struggles and difficulties and never gave up which is something I’m really proud of.

To finish and summarize this post i wanna thank all of you my readers and followers from the bottom of my heart so so much for always supporting me whether it’s commenting or sending me message, it really means a lot and thank you for taking  you time to read my posts which means a lot to me. Here’s to another year, a year full of new chances, productivity, and creativity.

Thank you all again, Love you LOTS.

xoxo
