The green escape

Leave a Comment

I'm sooooo thankful I live close to a very green area of Brussel and get to escape whenever I feel like it. Really help me stay grounded and get that bowl of fresh air on the daily. Also, eating my green is helping (with a little fresh burrata on top of course, I'm not THAT heatlthy).So good and filling. It's my go to daily meal if I don't have any inspiration. It is low carb and delicious. Yessssss, meal goal.

Feeling zesty

Leave a Comment

Spring weather has hit Brussels finally.
Since the lockdown, we've had the most gorgeous blue sky every single day - coincidence?? I think not...- and I'm LOVIN' IT. It really cheers my mood up.Another thing that really is helping me through cover-19 is baking. I made this amazing lemon glazed cake with my signature vodka - San Pellegrino - lime - low cal bitch drink and it was everything I needed. I was feeling super zesty and oh boy I got the Z E S T. This cake was an absolute delight : super easy to make and soooooooooo good. Literally. This is the recipe I have used (link :it's in French) but maybe you can Google translate? It's not that hard to do,  a few eggs + flour and zest of lemons... and you're good to go.
If you love anything citrus-e you will love this recipe!

Keeping my spirit highs

Leave a Comment

I'm really trying to keep my spirit highs during this quarantine time.
Although being an introvert help, I do miss going out with my friends and eating out in restaurants.
I have some up days and some low days. Today was a low one. Just sat in bed all day doing nothing and eating white chocolate. So unproductive and a recipe for anxiety to take over. UGH....

On the positive, I am so grateful to be home in Brussels with my mom and not stuck in Paris with some random stranger in a flat share. I honestly wake up so thankful every morning just for that alone.

Things I do that help me keep my good spirit:

- Listen to country music and have a little dance off with myself and a glass of rosé
- More rosé... lol 
- Picking up fresh flowers
- Baking cakes 
- Thinking of cool low-carbs recipes (my fave courgette bolognese for instance)
- Online shopping and buying new bikinis
- Day dreaming of destinations to go next once I get my freedom back
- Listening to the audio book of A Return To Love from Marianne Williamson. such an eye opening and incredible book based off the famous A Course in Miracle.
- Watching old seasons of Love after Lockup, The Real Housewives and Flavor of Love.
- Pinning my life away on Pinterest. I can't believe I just started using it!!!
- Going for walk in the country side near my house with my mom and reminiscing my childhood.
