Sunday: Classic Banana & Strawberry Smoothie

smoothie with banana and strawberry

Yesterday was the last day of our smoothie week and I hope you all managed to keep this little challenge up. Sunday's should be easy going, don't you agree? That's why I decided to make myself a simple an quick smoothie on the last day of this challenge. This also might be due to the fact that I'm a lazy person, especially on weekends. Anyway this is the perfect smoothie for a Sunday, as you probably already have the ingredients in your fridge.

What you need:
  • 1 banana
  • 1 handful chopped strawberries
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 - 2 ice cubes 
Wash your strawberries, chop them into little pieces, as well as the banana, pour all the ingredients in a bowl and mix everything by using a blender. 

Again a very sweet smoothie, but bananas and strawberries are definitely always a good way to go for.
I hope you guys enjoyed smoothie week. Maybe some of you are even incorporating this in their daily life? I for myself have to agree, that it was fun to do for one straight week, but I'm honestly not gonna keep this one up. I'm just not enough of a morning person. I don't like getting up early and I am absolutely not going to do it for a smoothie. Besides that, I'm a slow drinker and a smoothie takes me like forever to drink. But it really was fun for a week and it made me feel a lot healthier.


American Pie's Bring Back Memories

American Pie movies - so funny
film poster from wikipedia
I know, I know the American Pie movies aren't the most intellectual ones, but they so do remind me of the time when I was a teenager. The times we taped silly movies on video, like Scary Movie, Black Friday and of course American Pie. Those films were really big then, especially the first and the second one.
I literally spent the whole weekend watching every American Pie movie that exists. And besides the fact that they aren't profound at all, I still think they're so funny. Doesn't funny sound good to you?
If you haven't seen these movies yet and you don't mind silly jokes and a lot of awkward scenes of teenagers exploring their sexuality, you should give them a try. If your answer is no to all of the above only watch them if you were a teenager when they came out. Just for the good ol' times.

I added a filmography of all the American Pie movies down below, including the trailers.


                                                              American Pie (1999)
                                                               American Pie 2 (2001)
                                           American Pie Presents: The Band Camp (2005)
                                           American Pie Presents: The Naked Mile (2006)
                                           American Pie Presents: The Beta House (2007)
                                          American Pie Presents: The Book of Love (2009)
                                                     American Pie The Reunion (2012)

Hey guys, I hope you're all well and enjoying the mellow weather?
It's really amazing, besides that we didn't have a real winter here this season, spring arrived early this year. I mean this is just awesome, on my opinion it could be like this every year. Of course I couldn't resist, just had to put on sneakers. For the first time this year, yey! I chose to keep the rest of the outfit springlike too by wearing a college jacket instead of a coat. Besides the sporty college girl look always works for a casual spring day.

  • t - shirt: souvenir (10.00 Euro)
  • college jacket: forever21 (24.90 Euro)
  • jersey miniskirt: H&M (9.90 CHF)
  • stockings: H&M (9.90 CHF)
  • sneakers: gift
  • tote bag: H&M (9.90 CHF)

What are your favorite pieces for spring? Feel free to share your spring look or comment down below.

Did you ever have a smoothie with lychees? Well honestly I haven't, so I absolutely had to try a combination with these little sweet tasting buddies. And here's what I came up with, a smoothie with lychees and strawberries. Sounds promising right?

What you need:
  • 1 handful strawberries
  • 1 handful lychees
  • 1 cup coconut milk
Peel the lychees, wash strawberries and lychees and chop them in little pieces. Mix everything in a bowl, using a blender.
If you want to, you can sprinkle some grated coconut on your smoothie, just for decoration.

Although this smoothie is really sweet, I totally loved it. So yummy guys! Definitely going to try out other combinations with lychees.
