MARCH


Zara jacket and denim skirt, H&M sweater, Stradivarius hat, Giant Vintage wayfarers

Hello there my favourite people on the Internet! We haven't talked to each other in a while. Sorry about that. I am going to make it up to you. A lot of stuff has been going on, mostly University work considering it was the end of a semester, but I don't mind at all. This non-official spring got me all excited and I am planning a lot of upcoming projects and adventures. 
I took my cousins to see the Peter Pan play yesterday and it was amazing! That's one of the benefits when it comes to living in Zagreb, seeing my cousins a lot more than usual. My mum is in town now so I'm going to grab a lunch with her. Talk to you next week! :)

SNOW DAY


Zara jeans and bag, H&M jacket, sweater and beanie, scarf made by my aunt 

I am not really enthusiastic when it comes to winter but I adore snow! The thing is when you live on a seaside you kind of accept the fact that you will never have a white Christmas or even in some cases white winter, just lots and lots of rainy days. So every time we have a snow day over here, I get a little bit too excited. I don't know why, I just like it so much. Being able to embrace it here, in my hometown after being away for so long, feels even better.
I am going on a ski trip to France with my friends next week and I can not wait to get back on the slopes. I am going to be the only female in an apartment with five boys. That should be fun, right!? :)

BREAKFAST CLUB


 Merry Christmas my little reindeers. :*
 I really hope you are happy on this fine day, wearing that Christmas jumper, eating cookies, opening presents and spending some quality family bonding time. I am currently siting on my sofa trying to recover from a horrible hangover and Christmas food overdose after I had the most amazing day with my favourite people. 
I am the biggest breakfast enthusiast you will ever meet. There are really only a few things better in this world then having your breakfast in bed. It doesn't even have to be morning for me to have breakfast. These are the kind of things I would eat at 3 am as a comfort food when I am having boy problems or a panic attack about University work. Sometimes I am in a mood for a mozarella omelette, sometimes for an oatmeal with raw cacao and banana, but these are all really healthy recipes. That is the only thing I care about when it comes to food in general - just healthy. My favourite thing on this planet is avo and feta cheese on toast. OH MY GOD! I have a love affair with avocados. Whenever they are on sale I make sure I buy fifteen of them and I am not even exaggerating. Just read the next few lines and you'll understand me.  

1. Eggs on toasted bread with feta cheese and parsley
2. Banana, avocado and raw cacao mousse topped with oats, cranberries and almonds
3. Mozzarella, feta and parsley omelette with tomatoes and toast
4. Oats with banana, kiwi, goji berries, raw cacao, honey and homemade fig jam and my favourite bliss balls ( recipe here )
5. Toasted bread with honey, kiwi and goji berries
6. Avo on crispy toast with feta cheese

Sounds delicious, right? :)

LUST


H&M coat and sweater, Choies skirt, Zara boots and bag, my aunt's fur hat

What I am about to write has nothing to do with this outfit but it's just something I'd like to share with you. :)
Two days ago I remembered why I love certain pieces of clothing so much. There was a black tie event that I was about to attend and I knew I had to wear something that made me feel good about myself. I ended up wearing something that gave me an amount of confidence that I haven't felt for a long time. I usually am quite confident but this time it felt extremely good. It's a little bit weird writing about this and people might think that I am being arrogant but confidence is good for you, really really good. I don't know if it was the outfit, the people, having my mum and sister there or something else but it sure felt good. 
I wrote about this whole confidence topic before and I strongly feel like there is nothing that makes people feel better about themselves then confidence. It takes time but when you get there it just feels amazing. 

P.S. You can see the THE outfit on my Instagram account. :)

HEALTHY TREATS


Looks delicious, right? And the best thing about these bad boys is that they are sugar, dairy and guilt free, vegan and actually unbelievably good for you. 
I was inspired by a recipe from WNTLM, amazing blog by the way, but I didn't quite follow the recipe. I think that's what this is actually about, creativity, using whatever you like and have as long as it's sugar free and non processed. Also, please don't worry about the right measurements, because there is no such thing. This is what I did and what I used but you can do whatever you want. I just hope you'll get some inspiration from this. 

You will need:
- about 15 big medjool dates, more if they are smaller ( this is the base, so it's the only ingredient that's necessary )
- 1,5 handful of goji berries
- 1,5 handful of almonds
- 1,5 handful of cashews 
- 4 table spoons of raw cacao
- 2 tablespoons of coconut powder
- 1 big tablespoon of honey


1. Put everything you see above ( that's a cacao and coconut mixture right there, so don't get confused ) except honey into a blender. 


2. Now this already smells and looks like heaven. Put one huge tablespoon of honey into a mixture and let the messy part begin.


3. Create whatever the shape you want and then cover it with raw cacao or coconut, or mixture of both.


They are full of proteins, antioxidants, vitamins and they were gone in a day. My friends from Uni, my flat mates, my mom and my sister all loved them. I promise you they are "out of this world" kind of delicious and SO good for you. 
If you make them, post a picture on Instagram and tag me. My user name is @soffisingles.
