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.

FOURTH


H&M boots and sweater, Zara shorts, vintage bag, ebay necklace

Exactly four years ago I started this blog and here I am today - in my room, doing my University work, listening to an amazing playlist, drinking mint tea, eating avocado on toast and celebrating my blog's 4th birthday. Life is pretty good at the moment. I feel like every single post I write has that "life is amazing" line in it. But really it is. :)

There is a really cool giveaway happening on my Instagram account where you can win a personalized poster illustrated by me. Just click the 'like' and 'follow' button and that's it.

P.S. Can we just all agree that pink makes everyone happy and people should stop wearing grey and start wearing pink?! ;)

YOU'RE GOLDEN!


When I realised I was going to move away from home for University, I promised myself one thing and that is to stay healthy. It sounds simple but being away from home-cooked meals and your mom to look after you makes this whole ' I want to stay healthy ' thing quite a challenge. I know that most of you guys are around my age and I want to remind you how important it is to treat your body in a proper way. You know what they say - ' Good seed makes a good crop.'.
The first thing you have to do is forget about your weight. That number means nothing. Really it doesn't. This is not me telling you how to lose weight, this is me telling you how to look after yourself. Still, you have to put good food in your body. So no sugar, no food additives, no chemicals, no processed food, no crap basically. And it will be hard, I can assure you but you just have to remember one thing - what you eat is what you are made of. If you put bad food in you body, your skin, your muscles and everything else is going to suck. If you put gorgeous food full of proteins, vitamins and antioxidants and all of those other wonderful ingredients, that's what you'll be made of. And don't believe those stupid articles that say things like - ' bananas make you fat '. Bananas aren't processed therefore they are good for you, just like every piece of fruit and vegetable.
If you really want to feel better, have more energy and a glowing skin then just take care of yourself. In the future I'm going to write more about this topic. For now just follow these few tips and I promise you that you won't regret it. To me, the most beautiful people are the ones who love themselves and know that they are beautiful without being arrogant. The only person you'll have to spend your entire life with is yourself, so make yourself beautiful inside and out. So love yourself and remember that you are golden.

PURPLE



 A quick hello before I move from home! Yes, that is true. The day has come. I'm moving to Zagreb tomorrow and my Uni starts on Monday. This is probably one of the most important moments of my life and I am beyond excited. I can already tell that I'll get extremely homesick. Any one who knows me personally would not be surprised with that happening at all. I love Rijeka from the skins to my bones ( and yes, I did quote Ed Sheeran right there ) and not living there will suck, but I do know that I'll try to visit home as often as I can and enjoy Zagreb. :)

LACE



I've been reflecting on the past summer, longest summer of my life. Four months of nothing but fun and relaxing. I really don't need much to have fun. Just give me my favorite people, yummy wine and I am the happiest person on the planet. That is actually how I celebrated my 19th birthday two weeks ago. 
There is only ten days left until University starts. Next week I am moving to Zagreb with my two roommates and I am head over heels excited about it. :)
