Mung Beans and Sweet Potato Soup




Hello dears, how was your Valentine day? Hope you had a romantic day yesterday. I had a nice day with my family and today is my birthday:) already got a beautiful card from my hubby and a fab present of body lotion, soaps and treats that I love and a flash drive that I've asked, cause I really need one to keep all the pictures on my computer.

Well, remember that I want to eat better, so here I'm keeping up with a healthier diet and continued to cook things that I've never tried before. This time I tried Mung beans, which I've heard on the beneficial of it, but never tried before. I must admit that I absolutely fell in love with these yummy and easy cooking beans!
Well I had sweet potatoes and now wanted to have a soup with the mung beans and sweet potatoes looked out on the net and found Aylin's amazing blog: Glow Kitchen  she offers lots of healthy dishes with nutritional benefits. So I tried her Mung soup and it was delicious! Of course I made a few things of my own, like using 2 tsp of coconut oil to sauté the vegetables and added 2 celery sticks that is it.
Her recipes are easy to follow!

For the main course I've filled Chard with rice, carrots, sweet potatoes, onion, garlic and raisins and baked in the oven. Filled chards were served with whole rice noodles with vegetables cooked in coconut water.

Nutrition on my Mind

Hello guys, I'm so happy that weekend is just across the corner!  Though I'm sick again,  I hope next week will start with some new energies.  Meanwhile I'm starting to pay attention on my nutrition, more vegetables and whole wheat products.  Also am trying to reduce from 3 cups of coffee to only 1, which is very difficult for me, as I'm addicted to this gorgeous energy drink.
Well for today's lunch I made whole rice noodles with vegetables in coconut water and chicken breast covered in crumbs on top it turned out delicious!

After a Long Time... Floral & Marsala

An outfit picture that I took at the end of my work day, so I look a bit tired :) Hope you'll like it, I loved the floral & Marsala combo.


Dear readers, unfortunately I was way too absent lately, this is so sad to me, because I really love and enjoy blogging.
I also love reading other blogs and commenting on your lovely posts.
After giving birth I was highly absent, I tried to combine and manage doing everything like before, but in the real world couldn't do it:) my absent and lack of blogging started while I was 6 month pregnant during 2013 I hated every single outfit cause I was too huge and every dress looked like a tent or was really uncomfortable. Pants were the worst! It was so annoying to feel the pants line on my waist and it felt like I was strangled my tummy:) I have gained 25 kg. It wasn't that bad, but a bit not healthy, especially that one time during the second trimester that I've gained 5 kg in 1 month! I ate lots of sugary dishes, and I had a thing for pizza... yummy!
The only 1 thing that was actually healthy and I also had the munchies for it was avocado. 

So since than it was very hard for me to keep up with blogging and for this New Year, I've decided to take it more seriously, cause that is the thing I enjoy doing the most!
Especially I enjoy reading your comments, I really do appreciate every single one:)

So for the last 2 month everyone in my family was winter sick:) 

Have this ever happened to you? Being overwhelmed with everything and still trying to keep holding on to things, cause you don't want to give up? How do you manage to keep writing and getting your post often?
I really need advices:)


Here is a new tea I found, I love this brand, their teas are unique and the packaging is so trendy.

and this pot is an amazing hot chocolate cake with marshmellows and cream! yummy:))

Maybelline Colorama Lip Gloss



Hello guys, recently I'm all about cosmetics, well maybe it's a new addiction as it easy and very approachable for me to buy:) when I go to buy diapers and staff for my baby it's right there, sitting in front of me.
Well this time I'm writing about Maybelline lip gloss, that I picked up from the pharmacy. I've purchased no. 397 which is kind of reddish. 

Pros: 
1. Shade
2. Price
3. Easy to apply, just like a moisturizing lip balm

Cons:
1. Lasting time- disappear really fast
2. Sticky filling on lips
Nice for day time: just to give a little touch of colour to your lips.

Inside my Makeup Bag

Lately I've been shopping for a lot of makeup, no idea why, but I just had to have some new items:)
Well here are my 5 new items:







There is one item I'm in love with and that's the Clinique's primer, an item I will definitely repurchase.

I like the smooth filling and that it's really works :)

1 item I will pass next time will be the BB blush, which is something cool, but didn't work for me, as it feels very greasy on my skin, I will stick to my Pupa's baked blush, which I absolutely love.

The pink eyeliner: Make Up For Ever is something new for me, colour wise, I wanted something that I will never ever tried before, and there it was, in front of me at Sephora's Belgrade, Serbia. I use it a lot, to work, evening...

Clinique's concealer is great, but will keep on try other one's as well, will love to get some recommendations on a fab concealer that will blemish puffiness under my eyes!

Clinique's makeup "even better" is really awesome and I'm very pleased with the coverage and it's very light, not cakey at all.

Greetings to Bob

Finally I've made it! I cut my long hair into a bob style haircut.

I thought about cutting my hair for a long time and somehow always lost courage. If I think about it, it's pretty silly to be so attached to your hair:) also while cutting whole that hair I felt so good, like I just got free from my own rules:) 
So as I promised on my Style of One Facebook page, which you are welcome to join HERE you can see how I welcome bob:) and also my new pedicure.





Bag & wallet: Parfois 
Top: Choies
Sandals: Zara
