Flower Shirt – Selfmade

This  Flower Shirt was made by my sister Lisa and the fabric she used was from an old pillowcase. Doesn’t it suit her well? She transferred the pattern from another t-shirt she had once received as a present.

I sewed yesterday summer shorts. Unfortunately the didn’t look great on me, so I gave them to my sister Ina. Here a few impressions.

Chocolate Quinoa Granola

I once made a chocolate quinoa granola, which I was happy with. For this reason I wanted  to share this recipe with you guys. I found the recipe here, but I changed it a bit. The taste was very good but the texture was too hard, because of the quinoa. Well, next time I would add more oats instead of quinoa or simply use popped quinoa. I also used mixed quinoa what I think looks great visually.




Chocolate Quinoa Granola

2 1/4  cups rolled oats
1 3/4 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/3 cup canola oil
1 rounded teaspoon salt
1 bar dark chocolate ( 72%, 100 gr.)

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine the oats, quinoa, almonds, , cocoa powder, brown sugar, honey, canola oil, and salt. Stir until completely combined and all pieces are coated with the honey and oil.

Spread out on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for about 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes, or until completely toasted and golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Add the chopped chocolate and stir to distribute.

Serve room temperature with milk or yogurt, or as a snack. Store in an air-tight container.

See ya Lila

My first post!

Hi everyone out there

I’m Lila and this is my lifestyle blog.  I’ll post about food, DIY, inspiration, lifestyle, fashion, etc. I love to read blogs and I’ve always wanted to have one for myself. Now I’ll risk it. This quote has finally convinced myself:

“There’s no need to be perfect to inspire others. Let others get inspired by how you deal with imperfections.”

I’m on summer vacation right now and I have plenty of free time on hand. It’s very hot outside, but unfortunately I’m not a huge fan of hot temperature.  You can expect a  few cold recipes some time soon.

I’m quite excited.
