I N S T A – U P D A T E

I have literally had no proper social life and no proper time or money to blog and make pretty creative things, I’ve barely had time to even make music and that means so much to me. I think the sacrifice has been worth it though! In less than a month I’ll be finished with uni and then I’ll be able to work as a registered music therapist!! Eek!

Anyway I’ve still been posting a little bit of my life on Instagram, so here is my life in squares over the past couple of months. See ya on the flip side (last assignment due 17th of November!!)

 

Hope everyone else is less stressed than I am at the moment, I honestly cannot wait to just sleep and be a couch potato for a while after this hectic few months.

EUROTRIP I

Still coming to terms with the fact that I’m back in freezing Melbourne after spending a glorious month in European summer. Thought I’d post up some snaps since it’s been forever since I posted anything on this ol’ blog. Enjoy!

Buckingham palace, Notting Hill, graffiti in Paris, outfit matching with Hannah in Leeds, Luxembourg Gardens (Paris), The Louvre.

Oxford St, classic telephone box, gorgeous flowers, Musee D’Orsay, Monterosso beach, vegan feed @ Max Pett (Munich), selfie with my awesome travel buddy Lauren ❤

I hope to have some new content up, but for now enjoy my Euro-spam pls.

YES, PANCAKES CAN BE HEALTHY!

So, anyone who knows me knows that I have a terrible sweet tooth. My weaknesses include cookies, ice-cream, lollies, Nutella, any dessert with peanut butter, frozen yogurt, chocolate and of course, PANCAKES.

Of course, traditional pancakes are basically lots of sugar and not much else… so I have searched far and wide and experimented with different so-called ‘healthy’ pancake recipes. I’m gonna share my favourite version with you guys 🙂

Not only do these guys look very photogenic, but they are dairy free, dairy free and have no added sugar besides what’s in the fruit naturally.

I have made these into berry pancakes by adding frozen raspberries into the mix for half of the pancake batter, but feel free to customise them to suit your tastes. You can try other fruits like blueberries or apples, or even add some cacao to make them chocolatey. The possibilities are actually endless.

So get out your frying pan and make a big batch of these, guilt free. Check out the super simple recipe below!

GUILT-FREE OATY BANANA PANCAKES

Ingredients:

1 large ripe banana
2 eggs
2 handfuls of rolled oats
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
Splash of nut milk (I use almond or you can use water if you want)
Berries, banana, peanut butter, yogurt, granola…
(whatever you wanna decorate with!)

Steps:

1. Blend the oats until they become a fine flour-like consistency.
2. Mash banana and whisk egg and mix with the oat flour. Add the nut milk slowly and mix in until you get a pancake batter consistency which is runny but still thick. I usually end up adding about half a cup I think.
3. Heat your pan up, low-medium heat is best, and grease with oil of your choice (mine is usually rice bran oil or coconut oil).
4. Pour small amounts of batter on the pan in a round shape. Cook ’til you see little bubbles then flip em.
5. Decorate with whatever yummy things you like. I love peanut butter and berries with mine!

GOURMET CINEMA

On the weekend, I was lucky enough to be invited to the Gourmet Cinema, Melbourne’s newest outdoor cinema event held at the Caulfield Racecourse. This event is fairly self-explanatory as it basically ties together two of my favourite past-times – films and food!






I attended the Sunday night screening of Midnight in Paris, with food from The European to go with it. This was the final night of a 5-night long event – although the night was focussed on fancy dishes from The European restaurant inspired by Midnights in Paris, we able to eat from each establishment presented over the 5 nights. There were also amazing desserts by LuxBite which I could not resist trying!

I stupidly forgot my picnic rug, but luckily I brought my favourite wool cape and was able to snuggle under it as it got pretty windy watching the movie on the grass. Overall it was an awesome experience, and I’m looking forward to seeing more events like this held in the future.

One of my favourite things about Melbourne is that there seems to be an ever-growing list of creative and interesting events held here 🙂

Hope everyone had a great weekend!!
