BEET AND RASPBERRY SMOOTHIE

The one thing I like the most about the summer is the abundance of fresh, home-grown fruits and veggies. And there’s no better way to start your day than with a delicious smoothie, right? ;) These days I’m obsessed with this red smoothie, packed with vitamins and minerals. As usual, the recipe for this healthy beet and raspberry smoothie is so simple it hurts, but is very nutritious and will fill you up for hours! For two people I used:

two small ripe bananas    a bunch of greens, such as beet leaves (great for salads, too!), kale, and parsley  ♥ 
one beet    a handful of raspberries    1 heaping tablespoon vegan protein powder   1 teaspoon maca powder

Peel the bananas and the beet and put them in the blender along with washed greens. I also love adding one big tablespoon of vegan protein powder, I currently have this one, and one teaspoon of maca powder that is great for hormones – both of them are by Nutrisslim (I got them at Interspar). Then just add one cup of water and start blending! If you prefer sweeter smoothies, add a date or two, but you can obviously add some peanut or almond butter. Voilà! Then just top these off with some chia seeds and raspberries. If this isn’t the most perfect breakfast ever, I don’t know what it is! :)

PINK BAG

img_2233img_2260img_2284img_2271img_2249img_2296Hi, lovelies! I hope you’re doing great, I’m having a super chill Sunday morning and just had my green smoothie and coffee. I have to share a new addition to my wardrobe with you today: my new pastel pink bag by Ted Baker with rose gold details! I was browsing thorough discounts on Asos last week and my hart completely stopped when I saw this cutie 50 % off. It’s so beautifully designed and crafted and the length of handles can be adjusted as you wish. A small envelope bag that can be taken out as well comes inside, which is perfect because I was looking for such a bag, too. And because I’m fed up with huge purses that don’t fit in small bags or clutches, I went for their green/beige card holder. I’ll probably post a styling on my Instagram as soon as I’m somewhere pretty with someone, it’s hard to take any photos when you’re rushing to work every morning alone! :)

ORANGE

img_2005img_2037img_2035Orange is without a doubt an amazing, vibrant shade that goes well to any summer outfit. However, not any orange shade cuts it through to my makeup vanity! If I only had to choose one nail polish to use for the rest of the year, my answer would be really simple: I’d pick the Collistar gloss nail lacquer with gel effect in shade Arancio Solare 542. I bought it around two months ago because I really needed a new nail polish. Honestly, I stopped buying new ones last year as soon as I realised my nail polish count significantly exceeded 50. So, I wanted something new and tried to find a real orangey orange, which is really hard to find to my surprise! There aren’t many orange shades available, and even when there are, the color is always more on the red side.

This is how I found my Arancio Solare, wore it non-stop (always two layers, of course), and almost used it up. The lacquer itself is really long lasting as well, probably one of the best ones I have at the moment. The bottle looks quite worn down, but I’m sure I’ll use it up to the last drop. What can I say, I love myself some statement nails!
