My Two Favorite Breakfasts

Hey my loves,

in today’s entry I am going to talk about two of my favorite breakfasts that I love to have in the morning and are perfect to get you energized for the day. They keep me super full for a long period of time. So here they are.

Yoghurt with Granola, Fruit and Flax Seeds

I love this breakfast a lot, because it gives me such a variety. Obviously you change out the fruit as you like but I paired my yoghurt with red grapes, blueberries and half of a banana. I also added a handful of granola and a teaspoon of flax seeds. You could add some chia seeds to make it extra long-lasting.

I had chosen an Alpro yoghurt with mango which is already sweetened, but you could just have it with plain greek yoghurt and add a teaspoon of honey. I sometimes do that too, but I try to stay away from dairy as much as I can.

Porridge with Fruit

Another favorite of mine is porridge. This time around I had a pre-packed mixed berry porridge where you just have to add some water. Mine was from Weight Watchers.

I do like to add some extra fresh berries, that day I added blueberries and red grapes and normally I would add half of a banana as well, but I ran out of it. I also always add a sprinkle of cinnamon to get some extra sweetness.

What is your favorite breakfast at the moment? Do you always eat the same? Tell me in the comments, I would love to know.

My Bullet Journal

Hey my loves,

in today’s entry I am going to talk about my bullet journal. I’ve been doing this for almost six months now and I decided to start a new one, because my old one got too messy and I wanted a different vibe for the inside. My bullet journal is from Cedon, I bought it on Amazon: Cedon Notebook ‘Wiedehopf’

I’ve decided to keep it somewhat minimalistic and give myself a little bit more space for my weekly spreads. I also decided to cut some pages like my Disney watch list and a couple of others and added some pages like a few pages dedicated to my blog statistics.

Now, normally a BuJo starts with an Index, but I’ve never used the one in my old one so I decided to skip it. Another change was that I decided to place the yearly overview only on one page and highlight dates that are important just to get a quick overview. Next to it I have my 2018 goals, which are quite private so I covered them up.

The next few pages are dedicated to movies that are coming out this year (or in some cases are already out) and a list of books I want to read. I barely get time to read the books that I want (student’s life – lol) so the list hasn’t been ticked off as much as I would like.

Following those pages are a list of places I want to visit and my bucket list, as you may noticed, there are two places on the bucket list that I covered up, again, they are more private so I kept them off. And this list is by far not done, I always add new things, same goes for the places I want to visit.

Alright, I always divided my year into categories of three. So I add a three-month overview and write down all the big events on that page, further more I have a page where I write down blog post ideas. The next few pages are a blog schedule, where I plan out each entry and tick them off and also an overview about my semester.

Then for each month I will have a cover page which just consist of a monthly overview and the month title. As for my weekly spreads, I decided to keep it minimalistic but with enough space. I kicked out my one-page to-do list and now am using the extra space on the page from my weeks for that. It just works better for me!

I got a lot of my inspiration from my Pinterest and I also created a board, you can check it out here if you like: Bullet Journal Inspiration!

I hope you enjoyed today’s entry! Do you have a bullet journal? Tell me in the comments.

I wish you all a wonderful day!

Beauty Haul

Hey my loves,

a couple of days ago I went into my local drugstore and bought some goodies and I thought I would share them with you. I haven’t treated myself lately with some good skin care and hair products so that’s what I went for.

I’ve seen it online that the drugstore I went to is now carrying some Koran skin care and I thought I would try something. I went for the “Awakening Under Eye Mask with Ginseng & Eucalyptus”. I already tried them out and I really liked them. They had a cooling effect and felt quite nice, and I did see a difference afterwards. It’s just sad that you only get one use out of them.

The other mask is a sheet mask. The sheet mask has kaolin clay and green tea extract in it. I was really interested to see how a clay sheet mask would work and it worked quite well, the mask hardened and left a little bit of remaining clay on your skin, which was easily to wash off. I really enjoyed this mask and my skin definitely felt tighter and clearer afterwards.

Lately I’ve been really into pastel colored nail polish so I had to buy these two colors. The left one is like an army green one but in matte and the right one is a blue-ish light purple. “Trend it up” really has amazing nail polishes, they last long and look great on the nail, for a drugstore nail polish they are a real steal. If you ever come across I would highly recommend that you try them out.

Now, if you are a YouTube junkie just as I am you may have seen all the US-girls go on an amazing trip for this product release. And ever since they talked about it I waited patiently for it to come out here in Germany. This Garnier Fructis product is a hair mask, they come in, I believe, three different versions. I went for the repairing papaya hair food masks, since my hair is quite damaged due to bleaching it and because of the cold winter months. I haven’t tried this one yet, because I’m finished another mask, but I did smell it and, oh my good, it smells so good. Can’t wait to try it!

This was it all for my haul, it wasn’t a lot, but I still hoped you enjoyed it. Have you tried any Korean beauty products? Let me know in the comments below.

I wish you all a wonderful day!

Veggie Bulgur Bowl Recipe

Hey my loves,

in today’s blog post I am going to talk about one of my favorite recipes the last couple of weeks. It’s a vegetable bulgur bowl which is fueled with lots of great veggies and healthy carbs and is perfect for making in a big batch and eat all week. I have been loving cooking this on my meal prep day and it’s so versatile. You can eat it cold for lunch, you can mix it into a salad or you can eat it hot and make meat or fish to it. I just really like it!

This recipe lasted me for an entire week for about a meal a day, but it might last a little longer if you halve the portion, for example when you put it into a salad.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (uncooked) Bulgur
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vegetable stock (powder) or about 2 cups if liquid, otherwise add 2 cups of water to the powdered stock
  • 1 can corn
  • 1 can kidney beans
  • 1 can mushrooms (or 200 g fresh mushrooms)
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 large red bell pepper
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • salt, pepper, spicy paprika, garlic powder and chili powder (about 1-2 tsp. each)

Instructions:

  1. Mix together bulgur and water with the vegetable stock and cook first on high heat for about 5 minutes and then on medium to low heat for another 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Rinse and dry the corn, the kidney beans and the mushrooms. Set aside.
  3. Rinse, dry and dice the carrots, zucchini and red bell paper.
  4. Add olive oil to a pan over medium to high heat and start off with the carrots. After two minutes add the red bell pepper and zucchini. Cook for about 5 minutes. Then add the rest of the veggies. Cook until the carrots are soft.
  5. Season the veggies to your liking I added salt, pepper, spicy paprika, garlic powder and chili powder. Stir.
  6. Add the bulgur to the veggies and mix them together. Let them cool of and store them in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

I hope you enjoyed today’s entry and I wish you a wonderful day!

Travel Tip – Landschaftspark Duisburg

Hey my loves,

another Travel Tip from me for you. A couple of weeks ago I went to the ‘Landschaftspark Duisburg’ with a friend and we had yet another little photo session. It was also kind of the first day of the year where the weather was actually warm enough so you could wear less clothes. It was so sunny and beautiful there that I decided to write you a little post about it. But, before I share some of my favorite scenic photo opportunities with you, go over and check out my first ‘Travel Tip’. Have you seen my latest? Travel Tip – Düsseldorf Altstadt

TITEL.jpeg

If you love architecture and a history to a place, you will enjoy the ‘Landschaftspark’. There are so many great places to take photos at, whether for a more edgy look or something more soft and glam. On that day we saw three actual photo shoots going on. A bridal, a prom and a group photo shoot. So it’s THE place to shoot there! And I cannot even imagine how beautiful it will look in summer when all of the greenery is blossomed. I will definitely go back there!

What are some of your local top spots for photo shoots? Tell me in the comments. And also, have you ever been to the park in Duisburg then tell me as well or link me on your photos.

I wish you all a wonderful day!

April 2018 Favorites

Hey my loves,

in today’s entry I am going to talk about my favorites in April. Uni started on the 9th and since then I have been super busy and in full work mode, but I still like to take some time out to write a couple of entries for May, since I still love blogging so much and want to upkeep my blogging schedule.

What were your favorite entries so far? I would love to know.

Now onto, my favorites this month. I have quite a mix of things. So here they are:

1.JPG

As you can see, there is quite a lot of highlighters going on and not the fun kind – well kinda the fun kind, I mean, they ARE pastel colored highlighters.

My ‘planner’ and the ‘Stabilo Boss Pastel Highlighters‘ have been my planning heaven this month. I am currently figuring out everything I have to do for the individual courses and also what and particularly when I have to do research and so on for my final papers. But I also use the highlighters for texts I read, not just for planning. My planner is a Bullet Journal, in some time I will write about my experience, but not just yet.

Another highlight from April for me was and still is my new ‘phone case’. I am in love with it, I love the feeling, the color, it’s just so cute. I also love my new phone – lol, it’s an iPhone X for those of you who were wondering. What I especially love about this case is that it’s easy to clean and the microfiber lining. I feel like it still looks cute but also gives my phone the protection it needs.

As for my beauty related favorites I only have a couple of things. To be honest with you, I haven’t been wearing much makeup, just the basics to look semi-presentable, other things just have been more important. First up, is the ‘Trend it up – Nail Polish’ in this beautiful lilac color. If you ever are in Germany go to the closest DM and buy it, it’s super affordable (under 2€) and it lasts all freaking week, literally. I showered, I did dishes, I did everything with them and they didn’t split, crack or lost any color or anything. It looked perfect the entire week.

Another favorite of mine is the ‘L’Oréal Paris – Brow Artist Xpert‘. As you might know, I have been looking for a good brow pen and I think I have found it. It’s super easy to apply, blend and it can look natural or dramatic and I love that it comes with a brush, makes it so much easier.

Since being out all day and hence wearing make up all day I have been looking for the perfect under-eye setting powder, and I dare decided to try the ‘Maybelline – Master Fix Setting + Perfecting Loose Powder‘ and I was shook. It feels super smooth and lightweight and it lasts ALL DAY. It’s perfect and it was especially great during the heat wave we had. And since I am out all day I also like to not think about reapplying my lipstick, which is why my ‘Maybelline – Superstay 24h Lipstick‘ in Rose Dust has been my go-to one for the entire month of may. It stays on the entire day! I love it!

What were your favorites in April? Tell me in the comments.

I hope you all have a wonderful day!

XoXo, Jasmin.
