You will only need a fruit juicer and…popsicle molds. That’s it. Just pick your favorite fruit, or combine fruits, take their juice and freeze them!! I love nectarines very much so I didn’t mix the flavors. And because I really wanted to go for healthy this time I didn’t add sugar or any sweeteners. BUT I always share a couple of extra ideas that you could use to adjust the recipe to your taste. Feel free to add 1tsp. of caster sugar in each mold if you want your popsicle sweeter OR if you use fruits that are sour, like oranges. And another great idea would be to add little chopped fruit pieces in the molds 🙂 enjoy!
here is the team of creatives that made this giveaway happen for you, so take a look at their lovely blogs 🙂
the giveaway is open to international readers and it starts on the 25th of August and ends on the 7th of September.
Hey guys! Hope your week started off wonderfully 🙂
The past two years I’ve watched mobiles becoming more and more liked. I, for sure, have caught myself eyeing beautiful mobiles several times. And the fun is that they are not only for kiddos anymore!! YAY!!! I mean, wouldn’t it be lovely to hang a beautiful mobile somewhere outside, on the balcony perhaps or in the porch even better? Anyway, all that plus that I like playing with clay, gave me the idea to make my own, a bit smaller than the ones I’m eyeing, mobile.
And when i made it I couldn’t stop starring at it moving with the wind. So here is a video only to show you how beautiful it “dances”.
So, first thing you need to do is to make a handful of beads and four sticks with four holes each (mine are 20cm long). I used an air-drying clay but you can of course use whatever kind you prefer. Since I’m a minimalism-freak I left the beads white but you can always get more creative by painting them.
As you see above, I made five types of bead-shapes and then I played with the size of them. I just always had in mind to make at least four of each shape.
The most difficult part is to assemble the squared “wreath” where the beads will hang from. The photos below will guide you step by step to help you with it. Take a good look at the last photo, where the jute in the square forms a tic-tac-toe. That step is really important to make it strong and stable. Note that you need to tie a small knot where the jute meets each hole.
Now that the hard part is over…..spice it up by adding the beads you creatively made!!! This was my favorite part.. And while making it I decided to add some copper beads as well! Cause what else do I love besides white clay? Copper! So obvious.. haha!
Anyway, hope you like it and I’d love to see your versions or other mobiles you’ve made perhaps..
While summer has reached it’s hottest level and most of us are still enjoying sun more or less, caring about our skin becomes highly imperative. I know it is extremely boring to care about these stuff instead of just laying on the beach for hours, but unfortunately sun has becomes a bit dangerous and it is always smarter to get protection. Anyway, this post is not about protection from the sun but for taking care of ourselves after sunbathing. Sea and sun together, although really delightful, can dry our skin very fast. Removing the dead sells of the skin’s surface while moisturizing it as well is the least we can do once a week during our vacation. It doesn’t take a lot of time and our skin we’ll stay healthier and prettier during the hot, dry days of summer.
I forgot to tell you that it is really easy to make this scrub mix and you can just leave it in a jar near your shower and use it all year long. It also smells really nice and the skin feels soooo soft after using it that you’ll get addicted!!
1 cup pink Himalayan salt
3/4 cup walnut oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
Combine all the ingredients in a jar and…ready!
Next step…how to use it.
In the shower (before using soap)
Start at your feet and massage the scrub in a circular motion up the legs, the torso and then the arms. Make sure you don’t do it extremely hard, otherwise you can hurt your skin. And please don’t do it very often, once-twice a week will suffice.
> serve it with your favorite jam or chopped fruit! I used my favorite Bonne Maman strawberry jam <
