Looking back at this photo album filled with travel memories, I traveled again! In this article, I encourage you to make your own photo albums of your travels, excursions, summer shenanigans, to look back on when times are difficult (!) The backstory :

This is the recipe for the most delicious hot chocolate you have ever tasted. I do not know how to make lasagna, I don't quite get omelettes right, but I make the most delicious chocolate in the world. I can say it with confidence, courage and pride.

I suggest you make it too, because I'm very curious whether you'll tell me that it really is the...
I have wanted to write this article for a long time and I think now is the perfect time to share with you my eco-friendly and less toxic body care routine.
The backstory :
In my overall effort for a more sustainable and non-toxic lifestyle, I notice that the first changes I made were in the way I take care of my body. Mainly because I quickly realized the direct impact that cosmetics have on our health. Of course, my sensitive skin helped a lot in this, because somewhat reflexively, it reacts to anything toxic. Therefore, my first doubts were formed when...

Concrete pot, clay pot,...
After the avocado-and-turmeric-bread, I have another favorite breakfast! I especially enjoy it in during spring time! And it's a strawberry smoothie bowl of course!

Smoothie bowls consist of a mixture a little thicker than a smoothie, that we treat like cream! Just pour the mixture in a bowl, add various cereals and nuts and you're ready! It's super delicious and incredibly invigorating too!
The backstory :
