Let's Start With Breakfast

~"It's not a diet, it's called eating healthy"

I started eating muesli in the morning combined with fresh fruits. Normally I don't eat in the morning and I wanted to change that.
So I did some research about muesli, which is very popular at the moment. A healthy breakfast should include +/- 400 kcal.
Choosing a healthy muesli is not that simple. Because it can contain a lot of sugar. 
You should look carefully at the package of your muesli. The product should contain 350 kcal per 100grams and the percentage of fat should be less than 10 grams.
Your muesli should contain 50 to 70% off grains. I read about a simple trick to found out which product is most present in the package. The product that is written first, is most present. So chose the one who mentioned the grains first and the extras last.

Hope you liked this post. Stay healthy!

How to wear Maxi Skirts during Winter

Monday, February 20, 2017

"Orange? Like Effie's hair?' I say. "A bit more muted," he says. "More like a sunset kind of orange" ~ Suzanne Collins

I always loved maxi skirts. Mostly they are worn during summertime, but the trend this year made it possible for us to wear them in the winter period as well. You can combine it in different ways. I styled it with a comfy sweater, designed shorter in the front and longer in the back. A pair of comfortable ankle boots were the ideal fit, because of the long walks we had yet to do in Antwerp.

We went to the water to watch the sunset. It was beautiful. The colour was warm and made me disappear for a few seconds. It was a moment from pure intern happiness.
Orange is a colour that send out an enormous amount of energy. It gets his meaning out of the colours yellow and red. It stimulates you to think positive, be creative and helps you to get a good mood.

So if you are feeling down, go and search for a orange kind of sunset. Have a nice day maddies.

Wearing: Skirt and Sweater: H&M - Shoes: New Look

How I Lived On A Pound A Day

Tuesday, February 14, 2017

~“Don't think money does everything or you are going to end up doing everything for money.” - Voltaire

I'm reading a book (picture above) "How I lived on a pound a day written by Kath Kelly. It started as an impulsive idea, but then she wanted to test it for a whole year.
A friend of mine came over en gave me this book. 'It's something for you' He said. So I began this book with lots of curiosity and unbelief. How can you possible live on a pound a day?
I tried a couple of days to live on a pound a day, but it isn't easy. Kelly found washing-powder for 0,25 pound. The cheapest that I found here in Belgium was 2 euros. I could change my washing-powder in vinegar. It is available for less then 0,5 eurocent and you can use it for everything. Plus it's eco-friendly.

I will not test it for a whole year, but the book is inspiring and a little shocking to read.
I recommend this book to everyone. It gives you a new fresh view about how to spend your money.
