During the month of October I had the privilege to test and review the HelloFresh Box. If you don’t know the concept of the HelloFresh Box yet, let me explain it to you. HelloFresh offers… More
In the year 2000 I was 16 years old and life sucked. Because I failed maths, I had to repeat a year with a bunch of students I only knew by sight and it was extremely hard for me to get to know new people and habits. I cried for three month until Christmas until I got used to the new situation. Who knew that I would meet my dearest friends in that class and that 17 years after this, my whole circle of friends, would be based on those new friendships. It turns out that I was wrong about a lot of stuff and that things happened differently as I imagined. I made a list of things I would tell my 16-year-old self if I could.
Last Thursday I started my 14 days of detox. I wanted to do it because my husband went on a bike tour through Denmark, still weird to call him “my husband” even after two years of marriage, I never really got used to it, and I assumed he would drop some weight. So I wanted to drop weight too and also because my tummy is way too fat and I don’t like it.
The detox basically consists in:
When I first installed Instagram on my phone the app was quite different form what it has become. I think it was 6 years ago and at that time everybody was changing the signature square picture by applying filters called Juno, Reyes, Valencia and Willow. I liked that feature because I thought it mae my photos look professional.
Last week on thursday I attended a blogger event at Le Zai organized by the lovely Elodie Schmitt who works for the Zheng restaurants (Le Zai & Ginko Sushi) in Strassen. It was a good distraction from last week which was chaotic and stressful because of personal issues. I had the chance to meet blogger colleagues I knew virtually but not in real life and I mus say that they were easy going, terre à terre, not like some other bloggers I know.
I’ve always wanted to test spray tanning since years and I never tried it because it was too expensive or because I didn’t find a good studio near to the area where I lived. Spray tan are words I also googled a lot or watched videos on YouTube to see how it works but somehow the reviews were always saying things like the tan is not even or the product has a funny smell.
According to the title of my blog post you may think that I’m about to tell you what happened the night I had sex for the first time, but I won’t. That night wasn’t the night I became an adult. I was probably older than the average but still not an adult. I am about to write down what happend and how I felt when my father suddenly died overnight.
Any girl or anyone with long hair who has experimented with hair dye knows the struggle to grow healthy hair. Due to wrongly used store-bought products or to bad hairdresser choices, our hair becomes damaged, needs to be cut and you have to be very patient to grow it out.
Cocottes Glacis – the place to be… I know, I know, I’m a poet! Joke aside, I enjoyed the blogger lunch at Cocottes Glacis where I was invited to test new products from their range. I didn’t expect that I would like the food so much. I have to admit that I hadn’t eaten at Cocottes before and I thought that it would be another hipster, over priced, place to eat, forgotten in a few months. But I found out that it actually is a place where a lot of different people take a seat to have their lunch, that the food doesn’t only look pretty but it’s also very tasty and that the price is justified for fresh, organic and local products.
STEP BY STEP RECIPE: SAMOSAS
Since my Instagram post about the samosas I did last week generated many likes, I decided to do a step by step recipe about it. If you know the technique to fold samosas, it’s not very tricky to do them. I made some step by step photos on how to fold them and you can additionally find videos on Youtube about the fold technique.
Fox Beer is the (not so) new fashionable, calorie-reduced beer created by young Luxembourgish entrepreneurs. You may have seen it in your favourite bars already and in your local grocery store. It becomes more and more popular every day and that’s not for no reason! I mean what a genius idea to invent, develop and produce a beer that has fewer calories. I often ditch the beer for a glass of wine because it is less rich in calories even if I prefered to have a beer instead. Now I can have a Fox Beer!
