Carob & Walnut Brownies

Today I was in a mood for a yummy cake and I wanted to use carob opowder instead of cocoa, as it comes without the caffeine and also very nutritious, though I added white sugar in:)
So I browsed the net for a simple recipe, cause I didn't want to bother that much and I found this excellent recipe from allrecipes.com 
I have made two changes: added 2 whole eggs instead of just egg whites
added 4 tablespoons of sour cream into the batter.
It turned out moist and chewy, definitely going to bake it again!

Sporty Look & Spinach Cannelloni

For today I went on a simple sporty outfit which is comfortable and colourful maybe not that chic, but wanted to show you guys a sporty look.
On former posts I have mentioned I try to combine vegetarian dishes and today for lunch I prepared a spinach and zucchini cannelloni with feta cheese and cream. It turned out delicious and for a side dish I prepared a simple lettuce salad with walnuts, cranberries, olive oil, Atlantic salt and balsamic vinegar.

Casual & New Haircut

I know you have seen these boots & bag a lot lately, but what can I do? I just love them:)
Have to mention that the time these pictures was taken is in the early morning, so I look a little out of focus:)
As for my hair, yesterday I went to the hair saloon cause my hair really needed an haircut, it was to dry and messy.

New In: Clothes & Skin Care


Over the week I bought myself a new pair of black pants and a striped top which are very comfortable and great as a day to day look.
Over the skin care department I finally bought my first L'Occitane and a Weleda moisturizer already applyed them both and I am very satisfied  Bought them two, cause I was looking for a more natural option without parabens and other chemicals, hope they will do the work, as my skin is sensitive.
