Free People July Catalog 2014

A little later than normal, but still on time!! July isn't finished yet, so sharing my monthly favs list of the new Free People July Catalog 2014 today! All I can say is: WOW! FP you never let me down and it just keeps getting better and better. A milion bucks doesn't make a person happy, but oh my, I'd be so happy if I'd be able to buy every single item from FP! Still getting a lotery ticket every month... who know's... you'll never win if you don't try :P!

Hope everyone is enjoying summer as much as I do! Vacation stories anyone :)?

New In: The Bohemian Dream

Hey girls! How are you?! Enjoying Summer? I can't believe I'm actually taking a vacation. I've been sitting on my ass for almost a week, reading, seeing movies, catching up with my favorite blogs. And it feels SO strange after a year of working like crazy. I'm seriously experiencing a withdrawal hihi. Anyway, just sharing some The Bohemian Dream newbies today, the last designs I added to my collection before my vacation. Still SO in love with my model Jewel, can't stop looking at her, she's a true Boho goddess! Which one is your fav?

Getting back to my Twilight book. Wishing everyone a nice sunny summer day!

Lots of Love,
Lucia

Vegan Banana Orange Raw Chocolate Soft Ice Cream

Vacation time!!! Girls, I'm back! Catching up after weeks of my no-life-workaholic period. Taking a breather for a few weeks during Summer. Can't wait to catch up with everyone, missed you'all so much.

I'm starting off my vacation with cooking some yummy recipes I've been dying to try out. While catching up today, I really need something refreshing, because the temperatures in the Netherlands will rise up to 35 degrees celsius, too much really. Ice cream it is! The ice cream recipe I'm going to share today is my version of vegan chocolate ice cream. It's made from raw organic ingredients only, is completely vegan and oh so healthy. Yep, ice cream can be healthy ladies! Definately worth a try, it's so delicious!!!

Further for today, I send my heart-felt condolences to all those who may have lost family and friends in the Malaysia Airlines crash.

Hope you like this recipe! If you tried it, let me know what you think!

Love,
Lucia

Ingredients (I use organic ingredients only, but if you can't it's ok, it'll still taste divine):

2 tablespoons of organic raw cacao powder (raw is the best and the healthiest, normal is fine)

1 tablespoon of organic honey

2 large oranges

3 bananas

Preparation (an ice cream machine is easy the have, but you can accomplish the same results without it):

1. Peel the bananas and slice them into pieces of 1-2 cm. Put them in a sealed bag in the freezer. Leave it for 3 hours.

2. Squeeze out the 2 oranges and put it in a blender or kitchen machine together with the honey and raw cacao. Add the pieces of banana to it. Let it blend until you have a creamy substance. If you have an ice cream maker, leave the machine rotating for 30-45 minutes, depending on how you like your ice cream, you can always leave it longer, but at least 30 minutes is necessary. If you don't own an ice cream machine, put the ingredients in a freezer cup and leave it in the freezer for 30-45 minutes, mix it once every 5-10 minutes with a spatula. Et voila!

July Inspirational Quotes & Music

WOW!! It has been over a week since my last blog post and it feels like it was yesterday. Ridiculous! And it has been months since my last Inspirational Quotes & Music post at the beginning of the month... totally unacceptable! My month of doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING at all (well, work related) starts from next week, so I'm working my ass off to get everything done before that time. Oh, how nice it's going to be when I can spend all my time blogging in my vacay, looking forward to it! Anyway, sharing some Inspirational Quotes & Music today to kick-start July. Here are some of my favorite new quotes from my Wise Words Pinboard collection and an epic song from the good old 90s, Blind Melon - No Rain, one of my favorite songs of all time, every time I hear it I get the chills and I've heard it thousands of times already. Lay back and enjoy the song, while getting inspired by these beautiful quotes. Hope you like them!

Happy July everyone! Anyone going to have a long Summer stop/vacay? What are your plans? Tell me about it :D!

Love,
Lucia

Jen's Pirate Booty (Oh, I)Wishlist

For the past few months I have been obsessed with the clothing from Jen's Pirate Booty from LA! Their designs are divine! Perfect for the free-spirited, gypsy bohemian kinda girl. Jen’s Pirate Booty takes bits of pieces from different cultures around the world to create their own style. I LOVE the Mexican touch in their designs. The lace and crochet embellishments, airy gauze fabrications and relaxed silhouettes are beautiful. I didn't have the chance to place an order yet, but will do by the end of the month... finally... oh my! Unfortunately I will be the owner of only one of these beauties, because it's kinda pricey!

Sharing my (Oh, I)wishlist of favorites today! What do you think of Jen's Pirate Booty?

Love,
Lucia
