- Healthy breakfast -

Quinoa

Breakfast-Quinoa

This week, I jumped for joy because quinoa is available again. The harvest had failed last season and all those poor super food freaks had to do without or pay about ten euros for a small bag at the organic store. Which I found a bit too expensive. Right, it’s back again. Read more.

Why friendships with men can be killing for your love life

men-friendships

I’ve always had this theory that a man with a female best friend is better than a man with only man friends. This is because he gets some feminine input once in a while regarding his actions thus getting a better understanding of the opposite sex which in turn is good for us. Read more.

Longer hair? Yes please!

long-hair

Long hair. We all want it? Well, at least I do and I have waited forever for the locks that I now have. Only recently did I have the tiniest of trims because the ends were completely dead and there were definitely some reservations beforehand. Read more.

4 Super veggies

Abs are made in the kitchen, but so is good skin, bright eyes, energy levels and strong nails. Nutrition plays a huge part. If you eat regularly, healthily, without too many sugars and don’t find it hard to pass by fast food joints, then you’re probably okay. Sounds like a lot of hard work and a little boring, but it isn’t. Read more.

Do it yourself

 Healthy cucumber-gin-cocktail

healthy-summer-cocktail-1

My mother saves all the Jamie magazines (you know, Oliver). Give me a stack and you won’t hear from me for hours. Somewhere in a number from last year was a cocktail recipe with gin and cucumber. An excellent little tipple to get us into the swing of the summer that is now finally upon us. Such a delicious, healthy cocktail can really help to break up the week. Read more.

Guilty-pleasures-May-Britt-Mobach-2

People always think that our editor in chief is a perfect doll. Well, she’s indeed not far from it, but there’s always more than meets the eye. Yes, her make-up is always flawless and she is always wearing the best outfits. But on the inside she can sometimes very well be kind of a clumsy, foul mouthed sailor who is happy to gorge herself at the front of a take away joint in the middle of the night.

Favorite-things-Kristen-Taekman

She’s probably the prettiest housewife to ever join the show – a fact she so ironically underlined with her introductory tagline: ‘I may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but I’m pretty!’ – and has been a very amusing addition to the The Real Housewives Of New York City ever since. Whether it’s engaging in a good old cat fight with Bethenny and Ramona… Read more.

Whoever claims a root canal treatment is more painful than a broken heart has never had to deal with one. There are only a few emotions that hurt as much as a broken heart or unanswered love. During the days/weeks after a breakup you receive support and help from your family and friends but sometimes this help is not offered in the most ideal way.

Working out in front of the tv

Workout-vanaf-de-bank-new

It’s not that I feel like working out every day. Sometimes I have to really push myself and there are even times I just skip it all together. If you really don’t want to work out, why on earth would you torture yourself by going anyway? You know what? You can even do a workout on the sofa, right there in your living room. Read more.
