La Movenza Dance wear

I’m so happy to be collaborating with the Italian brand La Movenza! Yesterday I got sent some really nice warm up clothes all the way from Italy.

Today was the first day of our Saturday school, we’ve had the whole weekends off until now as the school didn’t want to push us too hard in the beginning. As some weeks have passed we’ve started to work harder and harder, which is very exhausting but definitely so much fun. For repertoire class we’re working on Gamzatti variation and I’m also working extra on the dream variation from Raymonda.

La Movenza got me light grey leg warmers, another pair of pants, a jumpsuit and trash bag pants. I’m really thankful and can’t wait to wear these at school.

I hope you’re all having a good weekendโฃ๏ธ

Long days many rehearsals shenanigans

Heyy guys!!

I am SO sorry I haven’t blogged in forever… Apart from being busy seeing friends this weekend, I’ve also been studying for a big Swedish test we had on Monday.

I’ve been in such a good mood today. We started off with a class about art and society, then we had ballet, pointe class, lunch, Swedish and then we finished with rehearsals/ variation classes, at 6pm. I got home an hour later and after showering and removing my makeup I made dinner: Salmon, quinoa & vegetables, with an avocado- and basil sauce. It was SO yummy. Quick & easy too. DEFINITELY recommend to someone who wants a healthy but quick-fix dinner.

Tomorrow we finish quite early, at 5pm, and I might stay and work a bit more after that. I’ll see how my body is feeling. Yesterday I got new pointe shoes and I am currently trying out Bloch (alpha) as I don’t feel like grishko shoes look very good on me compared to freeds which are good looking but unnecessarily painful. I’ll let you know how these work!

I hope you’ve had a great start of your week. Otherwise, it can only get better ๐Ÿ˜‰

Goodnight โค

Food coma & happy reunions

Hey guys!!

Yesterday I was finally reunited with my beloved friends Sabina & Jamine. We met after school and dropped off their stuff at my apartment before going out to eat sushi. It is a grey weekend at the boarding school meaning they cannot be there so they stayed with me at my apartment. โค

We spent the rest of the night catching up on loads of gossip and stuff that’s happened, eating candy and berries.

Today’s morning was a very chill one, we woke up, made breakfast and watched Gilmore Girls. For lunch we discovered the amazing ร„lskade Traditioner, near Skanstull in Stockholm. We ordered incredible milkshakes and really yummy waffles. As you can see above. The rest of the day was spent shopping. They both left in the afternoon/ evening and since then I’ve been doing my laundry, a bit of cleaning and I’ve also studied for a Swedish test we’ll have on Monday.

For dinner I made tomato soup with (bean) pasta and sandwiches in the oven. I’m currently snacking on some candy while watching Orange is the new black.

Hope you’re all having a good weekend โค

Halloumi tacos? Yes please!

Good food = good mood. Isn’t it?ย 

Today I made this really yummy dinner: Halloumi tacos!

I posted pictures of it on my Snapchat (@ moaoaoaoa) and loads of people were asking for the recipe. All you need is halloumi, some tomato salsa, guacamole, tortilla bread and any additional vegetables of your choice.

Firstly, prepare the halloumi. Cut it into cubes and mix it with oregano, pepper flavour and a little bit of chilli flakes.

Prepare the tomato salsa by cutting the tomatoes, some red onion, lime juice and parsley. Add some salt and pepper.

The last thing you should do before frying the halloumi: prepare the guacamole. Since I’m one person I only used one avocado, mixed it with garlic, lime juice and salt and pepper.ย I also had corn and cucumber with my tacos.

Simple, healthy & takes no time to make!! Enjoy ๐Ÿ˜˜

Chia pudding with almond milk and cardamom

Today I thought I’d share this yummy (& easy!) chia pudding recipe with you. Perfect for breakfast or as an in between class snack. Chia seeds are filled with fibre, iron and rich in antioxidants. With other words, they’re really good for you ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Almond milk: a bit more than 2dl or 1 cup.
  • Chia seeds: 2 msk or 1/2 cup
  • Honey: however much you’d like
  • Cardamom: didn’t use any measurements this one either
  • Vanilla sugar/powder: same as with cardamom/ honey

Mix all the ingredients mentioned above in an average sized glass, put it in the fridge and leave it overnight.

Serve with berries for an extra boost of vitamins ๐Ÿ˜Šโค

Sunday โ™ก chill

Good evening guys!!

Yesterday morning was spent studying and then I went to this cozy pick nick with a bunch of friends from school. I was later in the evening meant to go to a party but unfortunately I started feeling really sick so instead I ended up going to bed at nine…

I woke up with a heavy headache but other than that I was feeling much better, probably did good not to go out yesterday.

Today has been such a chill day at home. I stayed in bed watching Netflix for hours before making brunch (bacon, scramble egg, sandwiches, smoothie & tea). I also deep cleaned the whole apartment and went grocery shopping. The afternoon was spent outside on my (very sunny & cozy) balcony reading Hamlet as I have to do an analysis of it for school. I had some old apples I didn’t want to throw away and therefore ended doing an apple pie, I also made a chia pudding for tomorrow’s breakfast. Recipes are coming soon ๐Ÿ˜‰

I hope you’ve all had a good weekend!! Goodnight โค
