flourless chocolate cake, healthy chocolate cake, organic chocolate cake, organic dessert,

I have never met a chocolate cake I didn’t like. But I do have a special fondness for moist ones with nuts and bananas in them and this tweaked version of my mom’s recipe is my favorite. It is my go-to dessert, great when you want to bring something special and homemade to the office for a birthday or tea and cake afternoon delights at home. Seriously, everyone loves this cake and the best thing is, it stays yummy for days (when wrapped properly). I have adapted the recipe to fit my organic and fairtrade taste and it has only become yummier in the process: flourless organic chocolate cake heaven, here we come!

Valentine’s Day can be everything from amazingly romantic, lonely, annoying, special, a day like any other, or materialistic and wasteful depending on how we spend it. When it comes to gifts for Valentines the choices range from super cheesy to truly unique and lovely. We all prefer the latter, of course. I especially love gifts that make the person I am with (or myself if I am single and gifting myself) feel special and that express how unique and precious they are to me. So this Valentines I’ll share one of my all-time favorite diy projects and you will be amazed at how easy this one is: DIY scented marbled paper. Romantic, affordable and easy: My kind of gift!

It was quite an eye-opener and all I wanted after reading these horror stories about possible carcinogenic and allergy causing¬†ingredients, was some natural beauty products to replace my staples that weren’t looking so good all of a sudden. In an impulsive but very liberating 10 minute raid I threw out most of what I had in my bathroom cabinet. I felt better instantly… until 5 minutes later I asked myself: now what?

statement necklace, pendant, hand of fatima, jewelry for less

We are in full awards season and I must admit: one of my guilty pleasures is watching the shows and checking out everyone’s red carpet style. Soon the Oscars are coming up: show-stopping fashion, mostly akward, hence entertaining, interviews on the red carpet and, of course, some serious jewelry to go with it: Cartier, Chopard, Tiffany and Co., van Cleef and Arpels and many more. Now, it’s all very nice to watch but since I am not about to spend a month’s salary for a piece of jewelry, here is my top ten swoon-worthy, red-carpet approved Oscars jewelry for less. Way less, actually.

I am always on the lookout for ways to greenify our home and I get really excited when I find something that not only makes our home more environmentally friendly but also looks great!
