Winter smoothie

img_8268img_8160img_8199winter-smoothieimg_8299img_8290My smoothie obsession has kicked in once again! Although smoothies are perfect for warmer months, I cannot help but make myself a thick, creamy one that can slightly remind me of a dessert, haha! This winter smoothie has everything I need for a great start of the day: some bananas (which are really necessary for the texture), organic cacao powder for a hint of chocolate, blueberries for some vitamins and color, but also peanut butter for a richer flavor. I also added some Maca powder to give me more energy and I always buy it at Malinca.si. For one hungry person or two normal servings you’ll need:

2 bananas    1 small cup of frozen blueberries  ♥  1 tbs maca powder    2 tbs raw cacao powder
♥  1 heaping spoon of peanut butter  ♥  a piece of ginger    1 cup of water

Just blend everything together until smooth. Then top it off with some chia seeds and a couple of frozen blueberries. I’ve been using the Kitchen Aid blender since last June, Alen actually got it for my birthday! I’m so impressed by how it works, it creates amazing smoothies, effortlessly makes ice creams and sorbets. I also made ice powder that is just perfect for cocktails on several occasions and it was amazing! I’ve made some amazing margaritas in the summer and I’m really looking forward to the next one. But I don’t mind, these creamy smoothies will keep me company until then!.

Moja navdušenost s smutiji (smoothieji, zmešančki?!) je ponovno tukaj! Čeprav so smutiji odlični med toplimi meseci, si zadnje čase vseeno zelo rada naredim goste in kremaste, ki me malenkost spominjajo na sladico, haha! Zimski smuti vsebuje vse, kar se mi zdi pomembno za odličen začetek dneva: banane (ki so nujne za dobro teksturo), presni kakav za malo čokoladnega okusa, borovnice za vitamine in barvo, pa tudi arašidovo maslo za polnejši okus. Dodala sem tudi maco v prahu za še več energije, vedno pa jo kupim na spletni strani Malinca.si. Za eno lačno osebo ali dva normalna kozarca potrebujemo:

2 banani    1 manjši lonček zmrznjenih borovnic    1 žlica mace v prahu    2 žlici presnega kakava
♥  
1 zelo veliko žlico arašidovega masla    košček ingverja  ♥  1 kozarec vode

Vse stresemo v blender in mešamo, dokler ni vse dobro zmešano. Smuti okrasimo s chia semen in nekaj zmrznjenimi borovnicami. Od lanskega junija uporabljam mešalnik znamke Kitchen Aid, ki mi ga je Alen kupil za rojstni dan! Res sem presenečena, kako dobro se je izkazal, naredi res odlične smutije, brez težav tudi sladoled ali sorbet. Večkrat sem naredila tudi sneg iz ledu, s katerim sem pripravila res odlične koktajle! Poleti sem naredila res najboljšo margarito na svetu in komaj čakam na novo sezono. Ampak se ne pritožujem, taki kremasti smutiji mi bodo do takrat delali družbo! 

Matte Lip Liquids

img_7997img_7969mauritius-dahlia-017If you have been reading my blog, then you already know that, in my opinion, good matte lip glosses are really hard to find. In recent months I have become a huge lover of The Body Shop matte lip liquids. The Body Shop kindly surprised me with the House of Holland collection just in time for Christmas! I received a cute tin cosmetic bag – I must admit that I have never seen a cosmetic bag of the kind, which feels kind of exciting :) Inside there were three matte liquids with gorgeous warm undertones. The shades range from a deep wine Mauritius Dahlia to a dusty pink Nairobi Camellia and a lovely nude Windsor Rose. All of them are highly pigmented and very easy to apply. They have a velvet finish and a very decent wear time considering they don’t dry completely! All in all, a lovely set of lippies that I’ll enjoy wearing throughout the winter and spring :)

Če spremljate moj blog, potem že veste, da je po mojem mnenju zelo težko najti dobre mat tekoče šminke. Odkar je The Body Shop prišel v Slovenijo, pa so me njihovi mat lip glosi popolnoma navdušili. Ravno za božič so me prijazno presenetili s kolekcijo šmink House of Holland! Prejela sem prikupno kovinsko kozmetično torbico, priznati pa moram, da take torbice še nisem videla, zato sem nad njo še toliko bolj navdušena :) V torbici so se skrivale tri mat tekoče šminke s prelepimi toplimi podton, od močnega vinsko rdečega odtenka Mauritius Dahlia, rožnatega Nairobi Camellia in prelepega nude odtenka Windsor Rose. Vse so popolnoma prekrivne in zelo enostavno se nanašajo. Po nanosu struktura postane malenkost žametna, zaradi česar se ne posušijo do konca. Ne glede na to pa so še vedno precej dolgo obstojne. Gre za res lušten komplet šminkic, kolekcija pa je na spletni strani trenutno znižana, če vas slučajno zanima – na voljo so samo še trije! :)

Happy 2018!

img-0754Happy new year, everybody! I hope you had an amazing time on Sunday, me and Alen celebrated the end of 2017 in the same way as last year: by the pool sipping cocktails! A lot has happened in 2017, I started working as a freelance translator and had experienced some of the most stressful periods of my life. I also almost finished my master’s thesis so I’m just a month or two from finally finishing my studies. I also had the best summer with Alen and I really hope we’ll be able to spend a few weeks on the seaside again in the future. However, my resolution for the following year is to work less or more efficiently, find more time to relax and be more sporty throughout the week. All of this brings me to my blog and you, my lovely readers! I would like to thank you so so much for all your support on my blog and on my Instagram account. I’m thankful for every single like and you are the reason why I’m constantly looking for ways to improve my work. Let 2018 be the best year yet!

Veselo in srečno novo leto želim! Upam, da ste se v nedeljo imele super, z Alenom sva konec leta 2017 praznovala enako kot lani: s srkanjem koktajlov ob bazenu! V lanskem letu se mi je zgodilo veliko stvari, začela sem delati kot samostojna prevajalka, zaradi česar sem preživela nekaj najbolj stresnih obdobij v svojem življenju. Skoraj sem tudi končala magistrsko nalogo, tako da bom v nekaj mesecih končno končala študij! Imam pa tudi nekaj novih zaobljub za letošnje leto. Najbolj si želim, da bi delala manj oz. bolj učinkovito, imela več časa za sproščanje in počitek in da bi bila tudi med delovnim tednom bolj športno aktivna. In zdaj pridemo do bloga in vas, moje ljube bralke! Najlepše bi se vam zahvalila za podporo na blogu in mojem Instagram profilu. Hvaležna sem za vsak všeček in ve ste razlog, da neprestano iščem nove načine za izboljšanje svojega dela. Naj bo 2018 najboljše leto do sedaj! 

Hugs, Vesna ♥
