Pink Latte Anyone ?

 

 

 
 



Hello Lovelies ,
While outside the cold weather keep greeting me on the school run I am back here with more pink , ( wondering about pink Sakura season already ) . I am not a fan of pink , not at all , only if my pinks are pastel / powder / white pinks . Do you know that I never looked for a pink outfits for my daughters , bright pinks terrifies me .. only Powder Pinks for Us :)
If you are following  me on my Instagram you know I promised more recipe posts , so here is one of them , under the hashtag #hotdrinks #pinklatte :)
So .. when I first noticed pink cute drink called pink latte somewhere in the Pinterest I think - I was intrigued , mostly by what its made of !
So here is the surprise - beet root juice or powder is the base for it !
I absolutely love beet root , fresh and crunchy in salads , boiled in different dishes and roasted in oven (you have to try , its  heaven ) , but the thought of beet root and milk didn't go too well for actually craving this drink !
But its not me if I will not try something new and I can honestly say Pink Latte is actually quite a pleasant drink , very versatile with the ways of using different spices and extras .

Recipe : Milk ( coco , rice or almond )
              beet root juice or powder
              Vanilla paste ( you can also use protein powder )
              Honey if needed

Super Easy - mix tea spoon of powder ( or less , depends of your cup size ) with small amount of water ! Froth your milk , add vanilla and pour into the pink mixture !
Done !

Any suggestions for my blog - feel free to message me on my Instagram page .

Festive Pink ?




 I absolutely  adore place name cards , they make your plate look a little bit more special and personal , especially if it's a handwritten one . Calligraphy was the future of the past once and I am delighted that it has a future again ( in this digital era let's keep real things happening too )
Where to place your cards is totally up to your imagination . I fell in love with these glorious coupe glasses filled with candy floss  , they look so soft , so pretty and so pleasantly pink . I love that the name cards are so tiny compared to the glass , it seems like a perfect combination .
Pink is never really at Christmas colour theme unless you are a Barbie or attending Barbies Christmas party :) But why not , I can reassure you that if you have children they will love it . I know  that for sure :)
I think this is a great idea with candy floss and name cards , perhaps different colours would be more traditional - dark green or red .( can you actually get candy floss in different colours ? hmm , I never seen any )







Hello my Dear readers ..

Today's shoot didn't go very well unfortunately ... Today was the darkest , unpleasant weather ever with hardly any decent daylight to show . I love to take pictures mainly in natural daylight , it's natural and so soft that it takes out the best of any object . Sunlight really is a miracle ! With almost no decent pictures of today ( I am a perfectionist after all ) here is  a little sneak peak of Festive table décor with a touch of pink .
Would you go pink ?

Christmas Mood













Hi Lovelies ,
here is another Christmas  wreath which I am using as a table decoration . This is slightly upcycled wreath as I had it for a couple of years and every year I just added different décor on it but this year it needed to be refreshed properly - the lovely white colour wasn't as clear anymore - White Chalk paint helped with that ! :)
I glued gold berries on it and made  little nests from raffia ribbon .
But the most prettiest part of this photoshoot is my new collection of Christmas baubles  , more specific - these are handmade porcelain baubles from the most talented Porcelain Artist - Julija Podzina , follow her Facebook page here !

Christmas Wreath




Hello !
Christmas really is the most wonderful time of the year . For me it's all about creating that Christmas mood / spirit . It's all about the cosiness , scent of candles , peace within and around . It's not about being consumer it's about time spent together as a family , for our family Christmas crafts is everything ( as you might notice that already ) .
This year I have not been my usual self with running little late with everything but I guess sometimes you have to accept that Perfect not always are perfect ?!
Anyway , by that being said , here is my Christmas Advent wreath I created yesterday and it took me little or less of 30 minutes . Like usual I used little tiny Christmas themed decors which I already had plus I bought a few red berry branches and those adorable red mushrooms at my local garden centre . The actual wreath  cost me £5 from the  local  shop and it  had some decorations on which I removed . I am very happy with the look of it , it's enough rustic and festive for me :)
And you can make your own wreath too , if you have hot glue gun you can consider yourself a professional :)

ICE strawberry


At our house we love to cook and I am so blessed that my husband is my own Jamie Oliver :) , Mr K is not that good with baking but the main dishes are just on the highest level .
My guests are very fortunate , its definitely a 5 star treatment when you over for a dinner at mine !

So let me introduce you with the sassy  "ICE strawberry "cocktail .
Ingredients : frozen strawberries ( around 11 medium size )
                     Copella cloudy apple juice 100 ml( fresh Apple juice )
                     Fresh lemon juice ( from half of lemon ) 
                     Tiny bit of Sugar ( 2 or 3 teaspoons ) 
                      White Rum ( 50 ml or none )

Place all the ingredients into your blender ( I use Ninja ) and blend it well !
You should get a lovely texture between  sorbet and smoothie !
It tastes Amazing !

 1000 THREAD COUNT
One of the best feelings is to fall into a crisp white bedsheets after a busy day and long shower !
Especially if it's Thread Count bed linen - Ever heard of it ?


What does thread count really means ?

­"You might suspect thread count is simply a marketing ploy to make Egyptian cotton sheets sound more luxurious. But it's really a scientific term on how those threads are counted­.
Technically, thread count means the number of threads woven together in a square inch. You count both length and width threads. So 100 lengthwise threads woven with 100 widthwise threads produce a thread count of 200."

I am pretty sure I fell in love with this luxury bed linen while staying at one of my favourite hotels , I kept saying to my husband " do you feel different sleeping here , it just feels so amazing ?" yes I know its only a bed linen but let me tell you - you will never go back to any other bed linen after you will experience a night sleep in thread count linen !

GOODNIGHT :)

Christmas celebration ideas



 Black pepper cookie as table decoration


 Beautiful idea for Christmas Afternoon Tea or just dessert table


Hello my Darlings , this year my pre Christmas time has not been  relaxed as I wanted , I just simply running out of the time day after day , but today finally I had a chance to plan my Christmas Eve table decorations , I used my imagination and this is what happened - I used little green branches from my Christmas tree , added a tiny bobble with raffia nest and sprinkled with sparkling icing sugar ( yes , so simple ) ! Also I have the idea of  Christmas tree shaped black pepper cookie with tiny bunch of green pine and some decorations ( even more simpler )
I will try to post more Christmas inspiration or even gift wrapping ideas , fingers crossed I will find some spare time for that :) .. and here is few questions for you girls : how do you planning to celebrate Christmas ? any particular food or cake ? what about table decorations ? what kind of traditions you keep in your family ? and what about gifts , everything ready and wrapped ?
