Are you craving some scones and tea?! Great, because it´s officially time for my Friday tea party and it´s not just any tea party it´s the coffee mug edition. Today I just had to share my favourite October coffee mug, and yes I have one coffee mug dedicated to every month! What can I say I just love me some cute coffee mugs.
If you didn´t know already I’m totally obsessed with the Moomin coffee/tea mugs! They are just simply so cute and nostalgic. Over the year I have gotten myself a little collection of them and my newest addition is this Moominpappa mug, which was a gift from my sister. I think it´s absolutely perfect for this time of the year!Oh and before I forget it, if you have any video requests please leave them in the comments so that I know what type of videos you guys want to see! Hope you have an amazing weekend!
Today I´m sharing a pink makeup look inspired by the important message of October. In October it´s tradition to wear the pink awareness ribbons to honor survivors, remember those lost to the disease, and to support the progress to defeat breast cancer. So let´s just all rock the beautiful colour of pink this month to show our support. Here is my pink makeup look.
For my eyes I simply just applied a shimmery pink shadow all over my lid and then to blend it out in the crease I used Mac´s Wedge. To define my lash line I used a darker brown shadow, Mac´s handwritten, and this just makes for a slightly smoky look. For this pink makeup look I went for a strong super pink blush and then I applied a baby pink lipstick and the look is complete.I know this is a makeup post but I thought I would insert how to make an awareness ribbon yourself in case you want to show your support. This awareness ribbon for breast cancer tutorial is taken from the cancer.org website which you can visit if you want more information about the disease.
“You will need:
Three inches of pink ribbon, a quarter-inch wide.
One small safety pin
Needle and small length of pink thread (optional)
Options to attach to a lapel:
The small safety pin used above
Double stick tape
Cut a three-inch length of ribbon, snipping both ends at an angle. Lay the ribbon out horizontally with the shorter edge on top. Hold down the ribbon’s midpoint. Grasp the left end and fold so it points down and slightly across the midpoint. The fold can be a soft curve or a crisp line.
Fold the right end in the same way so the ribbon crosses itself about a half inch below the fold. Where the ribbon crosses itself, use the small safety pin to hold the ribbon in place, concealing the pin behind the ribbon. This same pin can be used to attach the ribbon to a collar or lapel. You’ll need to remove the pin from the ribbon, saving the fold, then work from inside your shirt to pin on the folded pink ribbon.
Options: The ribbon can also be sewn together where it crosses by machine or by hand with a few stitches of pink thread. You can also use super strength glue to hold the ribbon together; then double stick tape or a safety pin can hold it to lapel.”
Yankee Candle Blissful Autumn – Blissful Autumn is reminiscent of crisp autumn air with orchard fruit breezes, blissfully brisk and woody. Let your senses soar, revive your mind and energize your soul.
Jo Malone Green Tomato Leaf – “Glasshouse tomatoes. Earthy, leafy and full of sunshine. Crisp with stem-green galbanum. Lively with artemesia, fruity with cassis, resting on a cushion of moss. Tangy and evocative.”
Note: All descriptions of the candles have been taken from the different brands websites, as I’m rubbish at describing scents. Simply give these candles a sniff, you won´t be disappointed!
I recently went on a spontaneous trip to Ikea and ended up with a room divider, I know it sounds so random. Anyways I did and after having assembled it my self (proud) and installed it into my room I can honestly say that I love it. It just goes so well with the theme of my room. I´m also thinking that it might work really nicely, fingers crossed, as a set background for my videos. I want to start making some cool backgrounds specifically themed after the video I’m filming. That would be so awesome! I just wish I could spend all my time on littlecoffeebreak but unfortunately I can´t. Okay now I’m rambling and so here are some pictures of my new Ikea “EKNE” room divider.
As a person who is absolutely obsessed with any type of breakfast and supper food I feel it is my responsibility to share what I would call the best granola recipe in the world. Don´t believe me? Try it for yourself!
Mix together the following ingredients:
7 dl Rye Flakes
3dl sunflower seeds
3dl pumpkin seeds
2dl coconut flakes
A bag of minced almonds
1dl Unrefined sugar
After having mixed the ingredients together add 2,5dl water and 6 tablespoons of oil into your mixture. Pour the mixture onto an oven papered baking tray and put it into your oven at 200°C (392 Fahrenheit) for 11 minutes. After 11minutes mix your granola around on your tray before putting it back into the oven. Repeat this process for 3 to 4 times depending on how you want your granola to be. After your granola has cooled you can add some dried fruits. I usually go for raisins, cranberries and gojiberries. Note: This recipe makes for a lot of granola.
