#kulturernaskarneval 2014 – Uppsala festival

Jag ser att Kulturernas Karneval för 2014 söker volontärer. Läs mer om det här! Det kan vara roligt att delta som frivillig på ett kulturarrangemang. Själv är jag en föreningsmänniska ut i fingertopparna. Tex var jag frivillig på Klädbytardagen 5 april i år.

Själv kommer jag att spela på Kulturernas Karneval på lördagen 24 maj!

//I’m going to perform at the festival called Kulturernas Karneval, in Uppsala on the 24th of may. They are currently looking for volunteers!

Konjac sponge – Natural trend in facewash

I’m curious about the Konjac sponge, a sponge that can be used for facial cleaning and body and that’s 100% organic. Made out of the konjac plant that is used in cooking in Japan.

I found a “how to use it guide” on youtube by Elena Tee:

 

Unfortunately the one I ordered (from ebay) was too dry so it just disintegrated … to thousand pieces. But my friend F has already tried it and can highly recommend it! I’ll just have to wait for a new one that I ordered. Until then I manage with my own natural recipes.

// Här kommer en tutorial för konjaksvampen som görs av något som heter konjakplantan och är 100% naturlig. Filmen visar hur den används.

Jag beställde en från ebay men tyvärr var den alldeles för torr så den gick i tusen bitar! Ny på väg, men min vän F kunde rekommendera den varmt.

Just want to bring you some inspiration for what you can buy new but still with less environmental impact.

HM kimono // HM shorts // HM lyocelltopp

I think this look is lovely. You can combine it with a statement necklace, an envelope bag and wedges. You can wear the kimono as it is or with a belt. The prices for the HM conscious are very good I think. You know you can also get a conscious discount?

Lyocell or also called Tencel is a material that is environmental friendly. It’s perfect for the hot days of summer and vacation as it has a comfy feel and dries very fast.

Outdoor outfit

The mirror in the mirror effect. This jacket is kind of a classic for spring. It has a military feel that is a trend that always pops up in the springtime. So following a trend doesn’t have to be about buying something new.

An easy thing to do to renew garments or to pimp them is to change the buttons. For this jacket I chose a golden button since the golden details started to emerge for some years ago. This spring my friends asked me if the jacket was a new one.

I combined out with a secondhand pair of Lee jeans. Also a summer favourite, the light jeans with a flare.

Den klassiska militärjackan. Army modet återkommer ofta till våren. Satsa gärna på dessa mer hållbara trender. Jag förnyade jackan med nya knappar, ett enkelt sätt att ge ny stil. I vår fick jag frågan av mina vänner om jag hade en ny jacka!

Jeansen är ett par secondhand Lee som också är en sommarfavorit. Ljusa och utsvängda 😀

Äppelgröt- apple porridge

Så ett till recept på gröt denna gång havregrynsgröt med äpple och kanel!

Havregröt med äpple & kanel
1 dl vatten
1,5 dl mandelmjölk
1 dl ek. havregryn
1 rivet krav-äpple
0.5 krm salt
1 krm kanel

Jag börjar med att lägga i havren, vätskan, salt, kanel i kastrullen så det får koka upp.

Därefter tillsätter jag ett helt rivet äpple och rör om.

En riktigt fruktig och härlig gröt!

// This oatmeal porridge has apple and cinnamon! It’s also milkfree!

1/2 cup * of water
3/4 cup of almond milk
1/2 cup of organic oatmeal
One organic apple
A pinch of cinnamon
A pinch of salt

It’s like making the normal porrigde. Add the ingredients and let it cook. I mixed the apple and added it at the end.

Served with more cinnamon and almond milk!

Happea Easter

Just want to share the Easter greetings from Chick on a pea, vegetarian and glutenfree cooking blog. The chick has a small sari and jewels, I think she’s lovely, don’t you? Stay tuned for some vegetable frenzy.

Chick on a Pea

The Chick on a Pea is in the subcontinent if you did not know. As I write, she has packed her bag and is  ready to take off for a three-day “vacation” at the Karnataka coast.

She is taking a train to Udipea with Malpea beach as her final destination…

She is looking forward to open landscapes, good company and things that tickle the taste buds.

Easter is a magic time of the year. Just make sure to breathe in the spring and think about the wonder of renewal. From the outside that surrounds us, to the inside that makes us who we are.

This is a time for wildflowers, long and light days, sunbeams reflected on white snow, swallows flying high and birds nesting. Wherever you are there will be things beautiful.

Oh, and amidst the cooking frenzy that usually comes together with holidays – do not forget to …
