twisted carrot 1 twisted carrot 2


3 oz carrot
3 oz orange
2.5 oz part pineapple
2 oz part coconut milk
few slices of ginger
lots of ice

This is definitely one of the tastiest smoothies I've made so far. And I don't make that many – I should, they're always delicious. This was fresh but also had that comforting creamy taste smoothies get when they have banana or coconut. And for under 200 kcal it was also just plain perfect. I added zero sugar and I while I did use bottled juices, none of them had any added sugar.
I want to try this again this week with some freshly pressed oranges, some slices of fresh pineapple, and more ginger. It's going to be so good!
It's so very easy. Measure everything and put it in the blender. Serve cold. Enjoy!

Why. do. days. fly. by?

I've put a lot of effort into blogging these past few weeks. Once I even woke up at 5:30AM to do some blogging. Or maybe I couldn't sleep, decided to get up and start the day, and said "eh, why not blog?" Either way, I'm blogging, right? I don't know about you, but I spend way too much time on my computer. I remember those days when I was thirteen and I'd come home from school to an empty apartment; it was nice; it was quiet and I would lay on my bed and read until my parents came home. Seriously? I haven't done that in ages. Now it's more 'get home, open computer, check random things you don't even care about and god why am I even doing this?, after thirty minutes finally put belongings and groceries you walked in with on floor and realize you are stupid and lazy'. 

But anyhow. That's the world we live in. Here are some fun, interesting, good (or bad, it's all opinion) links to get you through a lazy sunday.

These pictures are from a while back (I was in Colombia in July) but I finally got to them and wanted to share! The Tayrona National Park was amazing. My mom and I spent three magical days there. It was the first time I enjoyed being at the beach!

Another outfit from my time in Colombia. On our trip to Cartagena and Parque Tayrona, I took a small backpack and thus wore a combination of the few items I had with me. Still, I wasn't complaining. I didn't need anything else! I write this as I take a break from packing for Smith. I have absolutely no idea how I'm going to get all my stuff back to Paris in December. This is a crazy amount of things I own. I need to try to get rid of 1/2 of it... maybe a new challenge?
