Hi everyone!! It has been a long time since I have posted! Life has been hectic for a bit but I am back to it! Since we are beginning July and it is the 4th weekend! Here are some looks I will be sharing this next few days for your 4th of July weekend look!💥
Happy Friday to all!! Yesterday, though fighting a cold, I was able to go to one of my favorite artists concert: Radiohead! Needless to say I have loved them since my early teens, and yesterday was a dream come true
Happy TBT!! For today’s post I wanted to share a road trip we took as a family up north! It was the most fun we had. It took me right back to when I was a child and every year we would take a road trip! Needless to say I am a road trip lover & hopefully will be doing another one soon enough!
As on my journey towards “Make This Year Your Year” one of the changes I wanted to make was to create a more peaceful mind set. My goal is to have more control of my mind where I do not “overact” in certain situations. For example: traffic anger.
I came across this article on The Verge (www.theverge.com) that discussed about this new app for meditation. It is call “Headspace” (image below) and honestly it has helped me a lot.
It gives a free 10 day trial period. I have completed the beginning 30 days and currently able to decide where I want to focus on for the next 30 days. You get different packets that you can choose what is your next area of growth. So far I can say it has helped me a lot to not over react and have more of a sense of peacefulness.
If you are interested on this journey I highly recommend it to you!
One of my goals for 2017 was to be more relaxed and react to challenges with a more “balanced” manner. For this I had to start meditating and doing yoga. For the meditating part there is a very cool app I read on an article on http://www.theverge.com; I will share it on a different post.
For the yoga part I started one on one lessons, as I had no idea about Yoga, and wanted to get more personalized ones.
This week was my first week of Yoga and I am completely hooked! If you can I highly recommend you to do it! As it allows you to relax and be on the road to more inner peace
Below are some pics of the outfit and my post workout faces I guess 😳 🙃
I have always loved baking as a hobby, ever since I was a little girl. I have specially enjoyed baking for my family. Recently my mother developed food allergies to chicken, eggs, and some more. As she always enjoyed pastries I decided to be “creative” in the kitchen and create baked goods she could enjoy! The result were good! I always wanted to share these recipes. If you can consume eggs all my recipes can be changed for that.
Today’s food post is one of my mother’s favorites “Vanilla Cupcakes”
The recipe is very simple you need:
1/2 package of butter
3/4 cups of sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 egg replacements or eggs*
1 cup of milk (if you use eggs it may be less)
2 cups of AP Flour
2 tsp baking powder
*For the egg replacement you use:
1 tsp of baking powder
1 T of olive oil
1 T of water
Side note: You can replace up to 3 eggs no more.
Turn on your oven at 350° Fahrenheit, 170° Celsius. Sift the dry ingredients then set them aside. On a mixer soften the butter until is almost liquid (see image below). Then add the sugar. Mix some more. Add the vanilla extract. Slowly add the egg replacement you prepared ahead. If you use eggs add one by one. Mix it until unified (see image below) Set your speed to low and slowly mix between adding the dried ingredients and the milk. Once everything has been added and mixed (see image below) place it on any type of mold you would like. Bake for 15 minutes or more.
If you are vegan you can replace the milk with any vegan alternative, a good option I have tried has been coconut milk. Also you can replace the sugar with any alternative you want.
