So today I felt I needed something sweet but since it´s not saturday and candy day I had to make something less filled with sugar, so I took a recipe for Snickers cakes and modified it and here´s my version:
Heat up 1 dl (100 ml) of honey with 1 dl (100 ml) of stevia on a low temperature. Add 225 gram of natural crunchy peanut butter, (I use Fitnessguru´s peanut butter), 1 dl of coconut flakes, 1 teaspoon of vanilla powder and whole weat corn flakes or as I did- spelt flakes without added sugar.
Then put the mix in a form and flatten it down. Put in the fridge while you melt 70% dark chocolate ( I had mint flavor in my chocolate) and put on top. Put back in to the fridge for appr. an hour. Cut into pieces and enjoy!
I hope you all enjoy the summer (or winter where that is now) and are in good spirits;=)
Here in Helsingborg it´s been real summer for a week with high temperatures and that´s nice. We´ve been out by the beach in the late afternoons and I actually like the later hours of the day is the nicest when its hot. Also for Mio, its better with a bit cooler temperatures.
Today I had a meeting here in Helsingborg with my manager Petri, who came passing on his way from Malmö. Nice since we haven´t met in person for a while;=) We had a nice frapino at Espresso House and talked about the autumn and spring and the plans ahead! Fun and soon I´ll tell you all about it;=)
As you know, even if I am not updating so much in here, you can always find me in INSTAGRAM where I post almost every day!
Now enjoy the evening and before I leave you I want to give you a really healthy but yummie recipe that I love to eat before bed time. Banana is said to make you sleepy so a good thing to eat before bed.
Healthy banana split:
Take approximately 1 dl of quark and mix down frozen or fresh raspberries. Peel a banana and slice a banana in two. Melt dark 70% chocolate or any of your choice and pour gently over the bananas.
Yesterday I bought myself new lovely running shoes and a new sports bra and then I headed out for a nice 30 minute run in the city! I haven´t been running since week 15 of my pregnancy and now it´s 3,5 months since I gave birth and all the indoor exercise has given me the core and strength to be able to run again. It´s amazing how fast the body can get back in a good condition after 3 pregnancies and I thank all my exercise for that.
The weather here in Helsingborg is not the best summer weather, unfortunately;=( I dont know why Swedish summers always are so boring with chilly weather, windy days and rain but well, that´s how it is most of the times. So what to do than to get a pair of rain boots and be ready when it pours down? I got myself a pair of Hunter boots on sale and picked them up yesterday;=)
I also found a great site from Chicago, USA, called shopakira.com where I ordered me some shoes and pants that arrived yesterday! I am going to use the shoes for coming photo shoots and I guess I need to sit down or stand still cause they are sooo high to walk in! But COOL and a dream to look at! The heel was the thing I fell for, I love crosses, as you know!
I also found a pair of boots from Jeffrey Campbell that look a bit like a pair from Givenchy I´ve looked at but these to a much cheaper price. I will wear them to a black dress or a short skirt this autumn. Love;=)
And then I got these pants that also will look great on stage or in a shoot:
Yesterday Mio got his first two vaccination shots in his both legs and one of them is a really painful one so he got a fever and were sad and down all day afterwards;=( It really hurts to see your little one in pain... luckily he is happy today again and it feels good to know he´s protected against some really bad deceases.
Now soon time to exercise and today it´s upper body work out!
And thanks for all of the hair color comments! Well appreciated and let´s see what we do. I am pretty sure I will go as dark as my own hair is, but then the level of it and so on we´ll see. I feel I don´t want to color it so often and therefore either very blond or very dark is a bad idea.
I´ll show you afterwards tomorrow of course!
Yesterday it was my dear oldest son Seth´s birthday and we gave him the new Nintendo Wii U and it´s a fun thing where also the whole family can play along;=) Tonight I´ll try tennis but I need to go and buy another remote control so we can be two at the same time.
It´s 12 years since I had Seth and it´s wonderful to have children in so different ages and Seth is such a helpful and great big brother to the other two.
Hello Anette, I have no idea what to write, just speechless because I did not have the opportunity to appear on any Nightwish concert when you were still in the band which really is a shame ... It would be wonderful if I could get your autograph and guys :) The autograph is on my list of dreams and I hope that if not now, then someday I can get it :) (sorry for my bad english) Greetings from Poland Małgorzata
And first of all - THANKS for so many who wants to be in the raffle! Fun! I´ll pull two winners tonight;=)
On saturday I´m doing a hair make-over again. I am so tired of my hair and my pale and tired nursing face need some fun hair so I´ve decided to do a real make-over. To make my coloring choice easier I´ve taken some photos of me with darker hair, crazy red hair and then my normal hair. It´s good to do this to see where your features appear best, where your skin looks best, your eyes are looking best and so on.
With dark, almost black hair:
here my eyes look really good, my skin looks paler but it suits the color. I look younger I think?
And in crazy red:
This color is not bad but it doesn´t suit me as much as the darker hair.My eyes doesn´t pop out as they do in dark. Look older?
And then with my hair nowadays. Medium blond with golden blond in the ends.
I look more natural and that´s nice too. But maybe boring?
When it comes to me, I know I look best in dark hair. It´s a fact and even my mum says I look better in that, haha! Johan always want me to have black and well, I like it too. The only reason to why I dislike it, is that I have to color my hair roots so often due to my own middle blond hair looking "grey" in my scalp and well, who wants to have grey hair?;=)
So let´s see what I do, but I am quite sure it will be darker again.
Give me your thoughts! And of course some other variations if you have some ideas;=)
