[Foodie Post] Banana - Peanut Butter Mug Cake

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

One of the things I probably love most about Autumn are gloomy afternoons. When the weather is chilly outside I love to get cozy on my couch. I light a candle, make myself a hot cup of tea, grab a blanket and just dream away. To round up a pleasent afternoon I treat myself to a yummy piece of cake. But let's face it, on such days I am just too lazy to go and get something from the bakery or bake some cake myself. Recently I discovered mug cakes and went a bit crazy experimenting with different ingredients and flavors. The combination of banana and peanut butter is one of my favorites.

Smitten Polish - Elixir

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

I recently placed my very first order with the Dutch indie nail polish retailer Hypnotic Polish. One of the polishes I got was Elixir by the brand Smitten Polish. I had seen swatches of their polishes before, but wasn't really on the lookout for a particular color. The shade Elixir spontaneously jumped into my cart. Firstly, because it is a deep teal color and I love teal. Secondly, the color is exclusively available at Hypnotic Polish. Let me tell you, I did not regret buying this gem!

Sugar Spun Candy Corn Nails

Tuesday, October 14, 2014


Hi everyone!

Today I have for you my first Halloween themed manicure. Of course I had to do some candy corn nail art, because they are the epitome of Halloween. I admit I have never tried candy corn, because it is not available here, but they look really cute. I combined the candy corn theme with the sugar spun method, which I have been meaning to try for quite a while.
