Queen B’s Lemonade

I literally just saw this and had to write.

Now, I am not obsessed with pop culture and ”celebrities”, but I do know the basics of what’s going on.

Why I put celebrities under quotes? Because I do admire them. It takes a special kind of bravery to do what they do, but on the other hand I wouldn’t wait for hours for them for a picture or just to see them. They do deserve they privacy!

Anyways, I just saw what the trailer for Beyonce’s Lemonade and I am looking forward to seeing it.

First of all, it is the Queen B! This woman has my highest respect. I believe she is a hard worker and a real power to be recognized.
In the combo with Jay Z – WOW! Talking about the real power couple!

But, we all know the rumors about him cheating and boy, did she ever address it and in the only way she knows how – in style!

She bluntly comes out and says it – yes, he cheated!

She is not the first nor the last to be cheated on, for sure!

But the reason it appeals to me is that she is so honest about it!

Here is the link to the trailer.

I can’t talk too much about it because I didn’t see everything, but from all the recaps I did see, I HAVE TO find it!

Cay you guys help me?! I can’t seem to find it anywhere! ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

Seems to me she truthfully showed all the stages of grief and acceptance and made herself more relatable to everyone.
I am sure this will help a lot of people through their hard times.

And in true Hollywood style, she gives us a happy ending.
But, let’s be honest! What would you do? After being together for so long, you can’t just throw it all away, but you try to find a way!

This also shows she is more than just a singer. In my opinion, art is not just something pretty, but something that makes you think and question!

And that is exactly what this does! Makes you think what would you do?!

Please link the video for me in the comments or just leave a comment with your thought on it!

Have a great one! =)

Skinny-Fat Person?

Is that a thing? Skinny-fat person? Because I TOOOTALLY recognize myself in this article!

skinny-fat

http://thoughtcatalog.com/christopher-hudspeth/2015/01/14-things-only-skinny-fat-people-understand/

I am pretty tall for a girl and people have always said to me: Oh, you’re not fat, everything is well spread! You can’t tell anything!

And that’s the problem with us skinny-fat people! Nobody believes us we are ”fat”! Everything is fine, nothing needs to be changes, but I am talking about being healthy!

Now, I am a very realistic and objective person. I can take a step back and without judgement say how it is. A trade of a teacher, ey?! ๐Ÿ™‚

I know I am not fat, but all I am saying is I could lose a few kg and tone up. That’s all.

And when I say lose a few kg, i don’t mean go on a crazy diet. I am not a supporter of that! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

I mean get back to exercising and eating healthy. It’s all about the food in the end! ๐Ÿ™‚ Healthy choices!

I just started Kayla Itsines BBG. I can tell it’s a big community. I really like the before and after pics and I’m hoping I’ll look like that after 3 months, but the way I’m going… IDK! XD

I came across the article above and I can’t lie. It’s me! XD

From eating totally healthy to having a ”cheat meal” at 3AM, from M clothing not always being a good choice for me to the ‘‘I just ate, but I’m still hungry!”. Which is basically my life motto! -.-

Click and read the article!
Do you recognize yourself in it like I do? What are more of the challenges you encounter as a skinny-fat person?

Also, anyone doing the BBG? I just started and I would LOVE to hear about your thought and progress!^^

So comment, like and follow!

And be well! =)

Rice And Spinach Casserole

I wasn’t planning on writing about this, but it just turned out so yummy I have to share! ^^

I was looking for a recipe for something with spinach and of course I turned to Pinterest. I found thisrice and spinach casserole.

image

Let me tell you it is sooo simple and delicious.
I did some adjustments of course. I never follow the recipes to the dot and I never weigh things, I just eye ball it. Is that good? Probably not. Hhh x) But it works for me.
What I did was…

Ingredients:

  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Spinach
  • Cheese (I used cheddar)
  • Rice (brown in my case)
  • Salami
  • Carrot
  • Egg
  • Bread crumbs
  • Milk
  • Greek yoghurt (I don’t know if that actually does anything for the recipe, but I put it in anyways lol)

How to:

  1. On a pan fry a bit of garlic, onion and spinach (I guess you could steam it too or put it in fresh, just chopped)
  2. Cook rice
  3. Mix everything in a big bowl: rice, spinach, carrot,cheese, egg, salami, milk, yoghurt
  4. Put it in an oiled baking dish and sprinkle with some bread crumbs
  5. Bake it in a preheated oven and toward the end put a bit more cheese on top for about 3-5 minutes so it melts nicely.
  6. Voila! That’s it!

image

Hat’s how I did it. You do your own thing.
If I had them, I would love to put mushroomsย in. Next time. To make it healthier, cut out the cheese or maybe put in riccota.

Sorry for the pics. These are actually the only two I took to send to my friends on WhatsApp. That’s why they’re bad.

What are your favourite spinach recipes?
Are you gonna try this one? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Relaxing at Bastakiya

I want to show you a beautiful old part of Dubai called Bastakiya. If you read my OOTD Boho Chic, you remember I mentioned it. If you missed it, seeย it here. ๐Ÿ˜‰

It is all renovated to look like it used to and it is a tourist attraction. There are museums, nice restaurants and loads of local artists have their shops there. You can browse, watch them work, talk to them and buy a unique piece of art.

Enjoy the pics! =)
(There is also a little DIY project hidden. See if you can find it! :))

Out on the streets…

I really like the sculptures which throw different shadows. Which one is your favourite?

I would also recommend a restaurant called Arabian Tea House!ย I really like how it has flowers all around, and the blue of the benches and the white really gives it a nice feel. So beautiful! ^^

I have loads more pictures, but omg it would be crazy to upload them all!

It is a really cool place to visit and relax, have a bite to eat and a drink. Everything is nicely decorated and I love the bright colours!

OOTD Crashing A Party

I just came back from outside soย I though I’d post a quick OOTD before I cange into my PJs and a quick and easy DIY with it. It’s 4AM here.
What begun as just a coffee with a friend, turned out for me crashing someones birthday party.
For some reason I decided to wear wedges and good thing I did because all the girls were dressed up.

image

With my favourite blue skinny jeans, I wore a simple black and white striped shirt (both Primark), but what I think makes it stand out is the black tie.

Which is actually a good and simple DIY idea. Just take and long fabric strip and turn it into a tie! Extra points for a pop of colour! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Something like this! Very unique!

image

In combination with cute wedges in turquoise (New Look) and a big, redish clutch makes it all playful, fun and a bit different! =)
