Sweet pancakes

Sweet pancakes

I haven’t had that many cravings during my pregnancy other then the occasional chocolate, ice cream and carrot.. yes, lots of carrots lately. But thats not what I wanted to share. My new favorite food is actually banana pancakes.

I don’t know who came up with this cleaver and easy meal but I first tasted it after  Blogilates shared the recipe. I did struggle with flipping the pancake and getting it done on both side but after some tries and fails I finally found out what works the best. The best part is that you only need two ingredients, amazing right! It’s super healthy and they’re already sweet so you don’t necessarily need any toppings. So here’s how you do it.


♥ 2 eggs ♥ 1 banana ♥ Olive oil

1. Mix two eggs and the banana with a fork or in a mixer.
2. Use a frying pan on low heat, add your cooking oil and pour the batter with a spoon to make small pancakes.
3. Wait a couple of minutes, the first side usually needs long then the second one. And once it’s easy to remove you flip the pancake over.

Perfect for a mid-day snack or maybe even breakfast with your favorite smoothie.

Enjoy!

A day at home

A day at home

Today I took a day off work, just because. I don’t feel the same drive and ambition towards my job and then it’s no point for me to work even though I get paid. Because we depend on the income of our customers to get paid, there was really no point in going to work when I only had one client today. It’s also nice to take a breather once in a while and recharge.

Ahead of me awaits breakfast, video editing and a job application. For some reason I always get nervous to personally deliver a CV, even though I talk to stranger every single day. The most important thing for me is to not think about it too much beforehand and remember that I’ve done this before.

Tips on submitting an application personally:

  • Dress in something you are comfortable in, but be presentable at the same time
  • Have all your papers ready. Most companies want to see a CV, certificate and diploma
  • Think ahead of what you want to say
  • Take x numbers of breaths
  • Greet the boss with a smile and a handshake

Whatever happens, happens. If it’s ment to be you will be called in for an interview, if not, something better awaits you!

Comment below and let me know if you have any adding tips to the list above.

Happy Wednesday

Happy Wednesday

I’ve already awake the last five hours, eaten breakfast & lunch, which usually doesn’t happen before I’m at work. I’ve also finished painting the wall in the living room and the cabinet doors in our room, which concludes my DIY project. The clock is ticking away and I’m off to work soon.

I’ve seen the most incredible full moon the last couple of days and it can still be seen over the horizon in the early morning. And when I see a view so magnificent I can’t help but to think that no man could ever paint a picture that beautiful. I even tried to take some photographs but I couldn’t capture the colors and the full size of it. It truly is created perfectly by God.

I wish you all a happy Wednesday! Enjoy the day that has been given to you.

5 reasons to wake up early

5 reasons to wake up early

1. See the sunrise

How beautiful isn’t it to wake up before everyone else and enjoy the perfect painted picture God creates every morning. It’s a sight I never can get enough of.

2. Enjoy the early morning silence 

Whilst sipping your morning coffee or tee listening to nothing else than complete silence around you. A gift we often take for granted.

3. Plan your day

When you wake up early you get the chance to plan out every single hour of the day ahead of you.

4. Workout

Maybe not the most motivating way to get out of bed but just imaging how satisfied you’ll feel after a good morning routine. Start of with some stretching and maybe some light cardio, before you know it you’ll be jumping out of bed to get ahead.

5. Sleep more 

The last and maybe the best reason to get up early is that you’ll be tired in the evening which will force you to go to bed early.

Mornings are absolutely the best time of the day. You can start your day with a new beginning and a cup of coffee. There is nothing negative about mornings because you’ve had a chance to wake up again. You got another take on life, you got a second try to live. Grasp it because so many others can’t.

Treasure & embrace this day because it’s all you have!

The best part of any day is the morning. Especially when it’s the weekend and you have all the time in the world. I took some extra time making today’s breakfast, and couldn’t help myself but to take some feel-good pictures. There is nothing better then the smell of fresh pressed coffee, having some long lost me-time.

DSC_5448Both my cat and I are located perfectly on the couch. Even though it looks like she can relax better then myself. My goal today is that I will try to take this day one minute at a time, because there is no hurry to rush. It is Sunday, and I think the last the of the week should be held close with comfort before we arise into a new week.
