September MoodBoard

Today I wanted to try a new series on my blog called monthly MoodBoard. The aim of this new series is to get me and possibly you too excited about the coming month. Sometimes we don`t even notice how negative our mindsets can be, and how much we focus on how busy the next month will be or how much work has accumulated and any other negative thought that goes to our head when thinking about the coming moth. I am personally a great fan of new beginnings , I am so much more productive in the mornings or in the beginning of every week or in the beginning of every month , I just really enjoy the feeling of what has passed has passed now I have a whole new opportunity to do my best in every aspect of my life. Sorry I know I went a bit on a tangent there but if you stick it out for a bit longer I promise I will get to my point.

Anyways this series will be all about the things that excite me about the coming month, anything from style inspiration to what is on my wish list that month, to food, home design , places I will be visiting. It will be a mesh mash of Pinterest-esque photos that will hopefully get you too excited about all the great things that will be happening in the next month. You can expect these posts at the beginning of every month on my blog usually on Sundays. Yay now let`s get started with September. Continue reading

Homemade Granola #HealthBreakdown

This #HealthBreakdown post has to be my favorite so far. It is so simple to make and it really has revolutionized my diet . When trying to eat healthy , at least in the beginning it is really hard to figure out what to eat , so we resort to the basics; salads , fruits and vegetables and all kinds of granola. Well that might be a trap , if you look at the nutritional information on your favorite granola you might discover that the sugar and fat content is nowhere near diet appropriate . Well I decided to start making my own , not just because I can control how much sugar and fat it goes in to  it but also what kind of sugar and fat I put in, not only that but I am also very difficult when it comes to granola , I just never seem to find a mix I truly like and don`t have to pick out the raisins (am I the only one who doesn`t like raisins?) . One thing I have discovered is that I prefere making a simple oats granola and have the seeds & dried fruits in zip lock bags . Depending on what I have my granola with I can decide what else I add, so when I have it with greek yogurt I like adding fresh fruit so I don`t add the dried fruit and only add seeds and so on.
