Weekend pancakes

Good morning guys and happy weekend!

Today is my work Saturday but I woke up feeling all types of happy for no apparent reason. I was also inspired to make this fitness friendly Saturday breakfast which includes pancakes.

I already told you that I am struggling to stay healthy and active during quarantine and I successfully turned it into my daily habit. I don’t skip my workouts and I try to eat a healthy and balanced diet. It is really paying off since I have been feeling much better and am able to cope with this current situation with a positive attitude.

My shift starts at noon and after that I will be resting and tomorrow I am going over to my sisters where we are celebrating Mother’s day. I can’t wait for my nephew to give me a proper workout because that child never stops. He is super active and is always running around. The last time I spent the morning with him my tights were killing me because he made me jump with him for hours on his trampoline. Yes, he has a trampoline (long story).

I am really happy about Croatia slowly going out of quarantine. Our bars and restaurants are being opened starting 11/5/ and there are less restrictions. We already know this will probably cause a new surge in the number of ill people, but I think that we will get through this fine because we became much more careful. I just hope people will still practice social distancing and keep themselves safe.

How is the situation in your country and what are your plans for the weekend?

Happy Easter

Hello everyone!

I would first like to wish a Happy Easter to everyone who is celebrating today 😀

Me and my mom have been alone this Easter, not even my sister came by and all in support of social distancing of course. We’ve had a lot of yummy food and I have been having a terrible headache because the weather is changing and I am very sensitive to weather changes.

I took half of the day off from blogging because I just wanted to have this day to literally be lazy and eat and rest my head but I am feeling better now so I wanted to check in with you.

I will be posting for The Poetry Bar regularly from tomorrow again. Also, my Poetry Bar e-mail inbox has been dry lately so feel free to send in some new works, I am looking forward to all of them. The e-mail is poetrybar1@gmail.com

This is it for me today. Have a happy Easter, enjoy it with your family and keep social distancing!

Sending love and positive vibes

A team building lunch

Hello everyone!

In the past few days I have been living my best life foodwise and beerwise. Yesterday I got up in the morning, had to do some shopping and then I met up with my coworkers at Stir Up. We had a brainstorming session and drank some coffee and then we went to have some lunch together and a few beers because we haven’t had any, how should I say, holiday meetup to just have fun and talk a bit.

Yesterday’s outfit looks good on a picture. The scarf and the pants didn’t like each other because everything from the scarf got stuck to the pants and I had to clean them every 10 minutes. But I still love it, especially the jacket!

lunch beer

For lunch I had tortillas because I couldn’t stand the sight of meat and fried food. I had too much junk food in the last few days and this was a better option. We had a great time at lunch and then I spent the day on the blog. I am looking for a new design, new theme for the blog, I want to customize it a bit. Small changes are always welcome.

Just want to remind you that you have until tonight to go and read our first Coffe date with Luna and participate in our gratitude post. I will be publishing all of your lovely comments later tonight.

As for New Years, I have some really special plans. I had some food, beer and movies. I will also be looking stunning in my outfit which is actually my leopard print payama. As you can tell, I do not have some special plans for tonight and I will be chilling at home but do share in the comments what your plans are!

Sending love and positive vibes,
Luna

Beer and more beer

Hello everyone!

I had too much beer last night. You know those nights when you go out to have a beer with your friends and then all of the sudden it’s 2 in the morning and you already stopped counting after the 5th round?

That was my night. But I was a lady while getting tipsy in this outfit.

Am I annoying with these random my life and outfit posts? I decided to make more of these but I do need feedback from you guys regarding this decision, I always want to make your stay here at Luna pleasant!

Anyway, back to the post:

I spent the morning in Stirup because we were brainstorming regarding some future business moves and then my nephew came to stay the night with my mom and me. He is at this cute, little phase of childhood when he drives us crazy sometimes but we are dealing with it.

Me and my friend went out pretty early, around 9, because we had so much to catch up on. I really missed her. We had a bunch of beer, some awkward situations with guys thinking they are good at hitting on girls (we all  have these stories). We had a great time and there was a great girl band playing that night. It was something like an acoustic night at Punkt (the place we went to). We also ate something to soak up the beer a bit:

Today I had family over all day. We were at my sister’s house and guys, I am dead. I haven’t slept a lot, I was a bit hungover and I was all over the place today. I think it’s time to embrace my bed and watch an episode of The Umbrella Academy. I just started watching it and I am on the second episode. I really do like the show, did you guys see it (please no spoiler alerts but if it sucks do tell!)

We have our first Coffee date with Luna post up and it’s all about gratitude so make sure to check that out and leave a comment.

Sending love and positive vibes,

Luna

My positive moment was when I visited my family yesterday and made them a lovely dinner for Memorial Day. I made chocolate bread pudding, whipped cream, pork ribs, bbq sauce, potato salad, and tomato basil soup. It was delicious.

I hope you have a great day,
James

Hello world!

I know it’s Monday and that generally people don’t like this day but think of it as a start of a new, productive week in which you are going to accomplish a lot! Now for you, who are like me and are half asleep at their job and for the rest of you here are some pics of breakfasts. Oh, the days I actually had time and energy to do such a breakfast in the morning. I hope you like it and that they give you inspiration to start you days with some yummy food.

Weekend in Opatija

I realized it’s been a while since I posted something about my life, things I do and so on and, after doing some analysis on my previous posts, it came to my attention that you actually liked those posts, commented a lot so I decided to do one more again.

It won’t be a very elaborate post or contain a lot of pics but there’s a good reason for that. I spent the weekend after Valentines with my boyfriend in Opatija. Opatija is a beautiful city on the Croatian coast, one of the most beautiful to be honest. The weekend was great, we stayed at a nice hotel, went to a nice restaurant, took a long walk along the beach and all of that stuff couples do on Valentines. I don’t have a lot of pictures because my caveman boyfriend hates taking pictures and doesn’t even own any type of social media account. I mean, good for him and his mental health, but bad for me as a blogger. Just kidding, I actually admire him for being so, how should I say, “offline”.

Here are literally the only pics from the weekend I have, some of the were Instagram stories so they will have the location tag or something. Tell me now, have you ever visited Croatia?


And of course, the dress I had on during our night out.

 

Dinner time

So, I’ve decided to do more random posts and I hope you will like it. Today I was running around my university getting all of the paper necessary to officially obtain my bachelor’s degree after which I had coffee with my friends and it started to rain like crazy. We had to get to the car and we were soaking wet. There was water literally pouring down my face and arms and I had to squeeze the rain out of my hair before getting into my apartment to have a nice, long shower. The rains in Zadar can get crazy, trust me.

The day after tomorrow I am going home to my mommy for a while so I have my “clean the fridge” action going on. I am absolutely against throwing food away and there’s a bunch of veggies and fruits in my fridge so I’m just trying to eat or freeze everything there is. This gives me the opportunity to eat large, delicious meals like this one.

I have me some chicken breasts cooked on olive oil, steamed broccoli and yellow beans, a bit of onion (love to put it in everything), some kidney beans, rye bread and tzatziki. One of the things people sometimes think is weird about me is how much I love to eat broccoli. I am the child every parent wants LOL.  I am trying to eat healthier and exercise and I just killed it with this dinner. I am so full!

For tonight I think I’ll tune in with some videos by Jay Shetty. I recently joined his Genius Group and I’m catching up with everything and all of the videos. I just find him to be so amazing and able to inspire people to become better.

I hope you are having a great evening or day (depends where you are from). Thank you for reading, love you so much!

Rainy Saturday

I set my alarm to 7 this morning because I have a bunch of studying to do this weekend and I really need an early morning to do my meditation, workout, cook, clean my apartment and everything else but when the alarm went off I just heard rain falling and couldn’t force myself to get out of bed. My will power was straight to zero. No. I just wasn’t getting up so  I slept for one more hour and then the guilt made me get my lazy ass up.

I made my yummy breakfast with some music in the background. Currently, still obsessing over Machika by J Balvin. It’s just stuck in my head since it came out. Also, loving the El Farsante remix by Ozuna and Romeo Santos. As you can see, I’m into this type of music.

My breakfast is pretty simple. Just some crunchy raspberry muesli with dark chocolate, an orange because I can’t eat my breakfast without some fruit and my hot lemonade. It’s just a half of squeezed lemon, some honey and hot water. I really enjoy drinking it to cleanse my organism and it’s also yummy, like a lemon tea.

Anyway that’s it from me this morning. I have to make my big cup of coffee and get down to work even though I just want to be in my bed and watch movies.

Enjoy you weekend!

Caramelized banana oatmeal

Good morning! I don’t know what time it is in your country (tell me in the comments) but here in Croatia it’s 10:20 in the morning and I’ve been up since 8. Decided to take a morning walk to clear out my head and run some errands and now I’m enjoying my delicious, sweet breakfast.

I wrote in my post Grateful that I’m a big breakfast enthusiast so I decided to share one of my favorite and very easy breakfast recipe. This is my caramelized banana oatmeal.

All you need is some oatmeal, a banana, honey, salt, coconut oil and cinnamon. You cook your oatmeal on the side and you heat up a pan. Place the coconut oil, honey, salt and cinnamon on to the pan and when everything is nice and melted place your banana slices there. Turn them once to get some caramel on the other side as well. When you place everything into the bowl add some more cinnamon or flax seed, as you wish and enjoy your breakfast!

In my version there is also a large cup of black coffee waiting for me because I have so much studying to do today. I was a bit disappointed yesterday because I found out I failed an exam. It was actually translating a text from Croatian to Spanish and I honestly thought I did a good job, but no. I failed. It’s not the end of the world because I have the right to take the exams four more times so I’m going to study really hard to pass it.

This is pretty much it from me today. Hope you all have a great weekend!
