Brunch

Two of my favourite girls are on their way here right now for brunch. The table is set, the strawberries, raspberries, bananas, pancakes and everything else that says brunch has been put on the table as well. The menu says smoothies, American pancakes (regular ones and banana ones) and fruits (lots and lots of different fruits!).

Over brunch we’re going to plan for Paris! I can’t believe that in less than a week we’re there! What could be better than me and my three favourite girls in Paris?!

Hard working girl

I’m getting really exhausted. I can feel it throughout my entire body! I’ve been working all days since summer break started, weird working hours and no time for other activities than working, eating and sleeping!

Where is the summer feeling? All I can feel is work, work, work! And pain in my knees, legs and feet!. Sitting down to relax a few seconds is just not a part of my job, unfortunately!

However I’m lucky to have such a great, great boyfriend who prepares dinner for me as I get home! What would I do without you!

Home-spa evening

After a long day of hard work including studying, exercising and running around down town in the rain and a lot of other things what we deserve is a relaxing evening. So what do we do? We prepare for a home-spa evening!

We took what we had (and bought some as well) and made different stations. This far we’ve got a nail-station, foot-station, face-station, relax-station(bubble bath with body-scrub & face-peeling) and a sauna-station.

It looks like this is going to be one relaxing evening! I really need it right now, to get away from all homework, essays and schoolwork! Also I believe I’m on my way to become ill. My throat hurts, my stomach doesn’t want to be nice to me and my head is nearly non-existing!

The gym!

Guess what! Drum roll! I just got back from the gym for the first time! It was great! I feel so much better now after exercising & showering!

I feel really excited and I’m ready to change my lifestyle! 2 days every week (at least!) I’m going to exercise in the gym! And on top of that I have tennis once a week and I’m running for my race as well a few times a week! This is the start of the new me! I’m just hoping that I will be able to keep up with everything else at the same time!

School work, my friends, family (tough they’re going away for a week leaving me behind), my boyfriend and my creativity that has to get out of my mind every now and then!

However, I’m 100% sure of that I CAN DO THIS! Because I want to do this! And therefore I WILL DO IT!

A brush, friendship, easter-spirit and a creative mind!

It’s been a fight against time to get these ready for today, I’ll tell you that and today I was able to give them to my beloved friends! Which is the reason of me not posting this earlier, since I know they’ll be reading. Anyhow, this is really easy and fun to do!

All you need is some cardboard-eggs. I bought some that were made for being painted but I’ve also used these”ordinary” ones that already have a pattern on it.

Then I just simply painted them with some colours that I know my friends like and decorated them with nice ribbons and some stickers. Finally I filled them with sweets and cute friendship quotes!

And this is the result!

The best thing about this ‘project’ was to see the expressions on my friends faces when they got their eggs. And the comments, and the hugs and everything. However My friends sometimes seem to overreact in these situations making it seem like I am like the best best best friend ever – type of thing.

Tough, I guess I will have to survive that, when it all comes around it is about making others happy. And I know that it is necessary when holidays are coming! I know I feel the pressure, having lunch with the entire family may not always be as sweet as it sounds!

Making others happy always cheers me up so do don’t you believe I did it all for you my dear friends!

Shaun the sheep inspired cupcakes

Finally my creativity is once again flowing the way it should! Yesterday there was a cupcake club meeting and look what we accomplished! It’s truly amazing how cute they are, we’re just great!

At first we were only supposed to make “Shaun the sheep” cupcakes but since we had many different colors of sugarpaste we couldn’t resist making some pigs, snakes and butterflies as well!

To make these cute cupcakes the first thing you need to do is my basic recipe which you can find HERE tough as you may already understand – skip the Oreo cakes!

Then all you need to do is a frosting which you can find in the same post but once again – skip the Oreo cakes! For decoration we have used white chocolate and sugarpaste, the white chocolate is wool and eyes!

Good luck!

I need to get going to school so that we can sell them cupcakes and get money for charity!
