Thai Basil & Pineapple Chili Lime Noodles

IMG_1178

I absolutely love this noodle recipe! It’s sweet, but chili gives it a little kick and lime gives some tang. Just dice 1 red onion and fry it in a wok pan, throw in some dried chili, pepper, salt. Cut vegetables quite large pieces as then they stay fresh and won’t soften as easy. You’ll need 1 orange pepper, 1 courgette, water chestnut can (rinse them gently before use), pineapple can, garlic gloves and grated fresh ginger. Bring water to boil and cook noodles for maximum 2 minutes. Rinse after with cold water and pour some sesame oil and mix. Add in the wok pan, throw some sweet chili sauce and soya sauce. Add 1 lime zest and juice, as well as some fresh spring onion, chives and sweet thai basil on top. Enjoy! :)

Cucumber & Lime Soup

015

Cucumbers are used in Scandinavian kitchen, I really love this cool soup for hot summer days. Just need two cucumbers, slice them in small cubes. 1,5 l vegetable stock, 1 lime, lemon pepper. Throw 1 cubed onion on a hot pan and gently fry in oil, add cucumber and leave for 5 mins. Add vegetable stock and let it simmer 5 minutes. Add lime juice and leave for extra 5 minutes. Add all seasoning and let it cool down for 15 minutes. ( I just put it in the sink, in a large bowl and let it cool down.) Ten refrigerate and once serving add cream. I got the idea from Jamie Oliver recipe!

Voila!

Strawberry & Kiwi Cake

311

For this yummy Strawberry & Kiwi cake you will need 2 dl vanilla cream, 2dl thick creek yogurt, strawberry jam or strawberry puree. Also juice of your choice to moisten the cake layers. So just bake a normal cake using any recipe of your choice, cool it down and cut in layers ( I did 3 layers). Start moisten the bottom layer and spread some puree or jam, as well as the vanilla cream & yogurt mix. Add all layers and spread the mix all over the top and sides. Slice fresh kiwi and strawberries to decorate.

Budget Beauty Loves

009

Boots got so many goodies to choose from, their skincare got anything between budget to luxury lines. I picked up these last summer and been using occasionally usually for 2-3 weeks in a row just to deep cleanse my skin. I wouldn’t use these during the winter as at least for my skin type, mine is normal, but I have some oiliness around T-area which is not really that bad, but I have to mention it anyway! Also sometimes I get spots, as most of us, but really don’t have a big problem with my skin. However during summer months it tends to get more blackheads and small spots here and there, so I love to give it a good scrub (I still use coffee beans :D) and sauna/or hot water steam (just pour hot water to a large bowl and cover with a towel).

Boots own line skincare line has Deep Cleansing Lotion that is similar to some of the more expensive ones, it has salicylic acid which helps clear the skin, but is better to use when your skin have been scrubbed and cleansed from black heads as it will dry the skin, blackheads are easier to “pop” out when the skin is softer (so after sauna or facial sauna and proper scrub!).

Tea Tree Gel has also witch hazel that gives my skin clearer complexion, this one is night gel, but I use it mornings and evenings.

Ginger, Lemon & Lime Tea

252

I was feeling just a hint of cold, and needed a little refreshing tea to get me back on track! This tea is quite strong in taste and will definitely give you your Vitamin C for the whole day. To make it just wash 1-2 limes and 1 lemon, peel ginger. Slice lemon and limes, you can also peel or grate some peel if you wish more intense flavor. Cut ginger in small cubes and puree it or grate it, puree will give more intense flavor. Place all the ingredients in a tea pot and pour hot water on top of it untill the pot is full. Leave to stand for 10 minutes and enjoy!:)

Tasty Summer Salad

IMG_0826

I want to share this tasty summer salad recipe with you guys! It’s pretty easy to create from scratch, just mix avocados, fresh sliced cucumber, fresh pear cubes, orange or yellow mini plum tomatoes, green crisp lettuce, spring onion, red onion and feta cheese! Also add hint of black pepper, pepper mix spice and salt. Loads of virgin olive oil on top. I also baked some garlic and butter bread slices, they are quite heavy so few slices each person is enough I guess :)

Summer Goodies

IMG_0786

Hey guys!:) Loving this summer is so sunny and warm! Few weeks ago I did some summer goodies shopping and these stuff kinda got on my way and thought they’d be pretty nice add on my summer accessories and cosmetics collection. This Scandinavian brand Gina Tricot is one of my favorites at the moment, relatively new I guess also?..not sure, as never really been shopping from this brand before until recently. So in my Summer Goodies collection I got: middle rings, white rings, two statement necklaces, sunglasses, earrings and statement ring. Also grabbed some bronzer, bronzer brush, foundation brush and some foundation foam sponges! They are heart shaped, so pretty and cute!

Hope you have had a great summer so far,

I’ve been super busy lately but will start posting soon as I am on my holiday :)

Green Apple Tea & Glossy Read Break

IMG_0557

It’s been pretty busy again lately, sometimes it’s nice to just sit down for a moment and have a little break from everything! I had some refreshing Green Apple Tea and relied on ¬†Danish Elle Magazine I picked on while I was in Copenhagen. Loving the Chic Danish Vibe! Thinking about my own wardrobe what I need to change, which is almost everything, as most of the things I’ve had so many years as I do tend to wear favorites until they literally belong to the nearest drift store :D it’s just something about a garment when it really is what you like and feel confident in, you want to keep it and wear it again and again! This summer I’ve decided to build up a whole new wardrobe and new style, I’ll use some help for inspiration from Pinterest & Polyvore (surprise surprise :D) and probably will update some of my ideas here as well.

What is your favorite way to relax a bit during a busy day?

What are your ideas for the summer or autumn style 2014?

Have an inspiring week!:)

Love
