Saying goodbye to summer

So, unfortunately, summer is coming to its end. It’s really tragic, I know, I’m actually two weeks away from going back to school and, honestly, I’m not ready hahaha!

To “celebrate” the end of summer, I baked this gorgeous, fruity and summery cake. This Peach Carrot cake with Cream Cheese frosting is from Call me Cupcake blog, you can find it here.


Although I’m not ready for the routine to start again, after summer comes autumn and, after that, christmas. And those, are my favorite seasons and I can’t wait to Deck the halls!


I hope you’ve had an amazing summer and a very chill return to whatever you do!

Honey Yoghurt Berry Popsicles

I know I’ve been out for months but, in my excuse, I’m like an animal, I have to hibernate. Now that’s summer I can come back to life.DSC_2811

Talking serious now, I haven’t blogged in soooo long, I had uni and a quite changing life decision to make, which I have made, and I didn’t feel inspirited enough to write, so sorry!

I’m re-starting as I first did, with a recipe! I’m not a massive fan of ice creams, I can’t eat them actually (I’m lactose intolerant), but as the heat rises I wanted something cold and tasty for my mouth. These popsicles are made with seasonal berries and so delicious!


Ingredients (For 4 popsicles):

(I actually used lactose-free yoghurt)

  • 1 cup of greek yoghurt (I mixed normal and strawberry yoghurt)
  • 1/2 cup of raw honey
  • 1/2 cup of mixed berries
  • Some mint (optional)


  1. Mix in a bowl both yoghurts and honey.
  2. Fold the berries and mint (in small pieces).
  3. Pour into popsicles molds and freeze over night.


Hope you liked them. Please leave a comment with your opinion. I want to do a Q&A soon, leave a question too!

Happy new year!

So, today’s the 1st of January 2016. Today’s the first day of a new year, of a new adventure.

As everybody does, I made my New year’s resolutions. (I never keep them) and I thought of sharing them with you:

  • Work on myself.
  • Discover more food places.
  • Read more.
  • Mosturize more.
  • Paint and be more creative.
  • Procrastinate less.
  • Put time and effort to the blog.
  • Worry less.
  • Say no if I want to.
  • Laugh more.

I tried to keep them realistic but it ended up in a ridiculous amount.

There’s a quote by Elizabeth Gilbert that I turned into my 2016’s “mantra”.


If you want to download the poster you can find it here.

I hope your year is a really good one and I will love to know about your resolutions in the comments.

Love xx

Happy Christmas everyone! I hope that you have spent a beautiful time and enjoyed the season of love and joy.

I really love Christmas, it’s my favorite time of the year and I thought of showing you some snaps I made these days (photos made with a phone).

Let’s wish for an awesome new year and I will see you soon!

Homemade Lavender bath scrub

Christmas is literally just around the corner  and this is the perfect moment for easy, quick and homemade gifts.

Today I want to show you a relaxing bath scrub made with 3 simple ingredients. This scrub would make a perfect gift for a friend, a teacher or even for Secret Santa!


Lavender is known to have relaxing proprieties so this bath scrub is perfect before bed time and it will help you to have a perfect night sleep.

Using it is as easy as rub into the skin before shower or bath and let the smell of Lavender relax your senses.


  • 2 1/2 cups of normal sugar (you can use white or brown)
  • 1/2 cup of coconut oil
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of Lavender essential oil
  • Purple food coloring (optional)


  1. Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl. Add as much Lavender essential oil as you want. Do not melt the coconut oil because it will dissolve the sugar.


Put the mixture in a mason jar or in any cute storage. To make it a little more fancy I crated a label for it. You can download it here.


That’s all!

Have a jolly merry christmas and I’ll see you in my next post!
