TASTY AND HEALTHY CHOCOLATE COOKIES

I've been making this ones a lot lately and let me tell you! I love them.
They are healthy and they contain only clean ingredients so they are perfect for anyone who is looking to clean up their diet or just to have a healthier way of satisfying their sweet tooth.
I know the ingredients may not draw you to try and make them but they really taste good and they are also very good. So just give them a chance and you'll be as impressed with them as I was.

This is how they look in the end. One of my family members saw them and was like: "Are they all burned!?!". Haha I laughed so hard. No it is just all the cocoa powder in them. Let'S start with the ingredients we will need for this recipe.

And now for the instructions how to make them.
It is super easy!
Start by pre-heating your oven to 180º  C. 
Step 1: Mash your banana and add it too the oats. 
Step 2: Add the salt+peanut butter+cocoa powder+ curd to the oats and banana mixture and mix until everything is thoroughly combined. You can also add some cocoa nibs to the mixture but it is completely optional. The cookies will still taste great without the cocoa nibs.
When you are through the mixture should look something like this:
Step 3: Place some parchment paper on a baking sheet and get yourself an ice-cream scooper. I know this step my seem stupid but this really is a great way to ensure that all of your cookies are the same size and they all bake the same way.  So just scoop the mixture to the baking sheet with leaving some room between each ball. 
Step 4: Wet your hands a little bit and just push the balls a bit down so they look like cookies. 
Put them in the oven for 15-20 min. Since there are no ingredients who can't be eaten raw you are good even with slightly less baked cookies. 
Take them out of the oven and give them about 10 min. just to let them cool a little bit.
Step 5: THE BEST PART!! TRY YOUR PRODUCT. 

I really think these cookies taste delicious and they are the perfect way to satisfy that sweet craving.
Hope you try them and if you do please let me know how they turned out!

:) Stay Beautiful

UPDATE

It's been hectic this couple of weeks with me. I have a few jobs and projects that I'm working on. Plus you know when you least need it you get sick. Which is what is happening to me right now.
But I'm beating the cold with plenty of tea and some medicine. I hope it gets better quick so I can go on with full power.

HOW TO BEAT PROCRASTINATION


Pouring rain and I am just stuck inside with a warm cup of coffee in my hand and my computer infront of me. Whenever there is a day like this when I feel sleepy and I would just like to snuggle up in my bad and forget the world(after working today) I feel like I have to do something!
I know it is very hard to get over the whole sleeping in warm bed or just watch a movie on the couch but I feel like I am wasting time. Don't get me wrong there are weekend day when I gladly sit on the couch with my family and just waste away an afternoon hanging infront of a TV.
If you ask my mom I am probably the biggest procrastinator in the world. Which I must agree sadly. But I think that realising that you have a problem is the biggest step. The fact that I am/was a procrastinator pushed me to do things the minute I get the assignement/work/project/anything that needs to be done. Sometimes I still slip up and wait till the last minute but here are a few things I learned that really helped me overcome the problem of procrastination. I hope it will help you too. :)
RULE Nº 1 - MAKE A TO DO LIST!

I know it may not seem much but let me tell you this is a real life-saviour for me.
Knowing exactly what there is to do it helped me so much. You know what they say smart people right down things. And for me that is so true I forget the most important things in a moment after I had thought about them. It'S insane. Also checking things off the list really gives me a sense of accomplishment. So my suggestion is try them it can't hurt right?!

RULE Nº 2 - GO OUTSIDE FOR 10 Min.

Getting some fresh air really helps me re-focus. It can be a great time to use to remember what is it that you have to do and why everything must be done. I know for me just getting out the door and just have a short walk helps me to get myself together and gives me the motivation to finish up whatever it is that I have to do.

RULE Nº  3 - REMEMBER THE BIGGER GOAL
Why is it that you have to do something? Ask yourself that. And the answer shouldn't be: - Well maybe I don't have to. Find a motivational reason and have it in your head. To me knowing I've done something for me means a lot. Wheather it is studying, working or anything else just remember everything we do in our lives has an impact on its quality.

TWO NEW YOUTUBE SINGERS I LOVE!!


Yesterday I stayed up late and I the tiredness has hit me about two hours ago(at 8p.m.). I fell asleep for an hour and guess what? Now I have way too much energy for being almost 11p.m. Anyway what I do in this situations is search youtube for all sorts of new videos. It can be from cover videos to silly things like motivational speeches. It depends what I'm in the mood for. :P
So this fine evening it has been different covers of well known songs. And I came across two amazing singers that I just had to make a post about and give them a shout out.

Andie Case Channel

Travis-Atreo Graham Channel

They are both super talented singers and I really think you should take a minute and go on their channels.

THE SCANDAL - OLIVIA POPE STYLE

The last time I wrote a character style post was when I was very into the 90210 series(see the post here:Naomi Style), Gossip Girl(the post:Serena Style) Pretty Little Liars(Here). Well my series preferences have changed and like I wrote in a post not so long ago Scandal is the thing I can't stop watching right now. Olivia Pope is the main character in Scandal. She is an elegant, sophisticated and professional. But what I love it also shows her in comfort of her home where she is dressed casual.
I know this kind of outfits are not for my age or what sorts of things I am doing right now but I hope I can help some young women who are just getting their life together and they want to go to jobs looking professional, but also some a bit older women who just need some ideas what else they can wear to their job(I know we can run out of ideas, all of us do).
Since she is a lawyer in the show most of her outfits are super series so I kind of made a decision to show of her style and show you what things work for a lot of jobs but also I wanted to add some of my ideas and maybe suggestion you can use next time you get frustrated with staying fashionable but don't know what on earth can you possible still wear (which will be in the next post so stay tuned for that).:)
The first thing I think is a staple in every closet owned by a business woman: elegant pants.
I think it is a thing every woman has at least one pair of them. I love how they look and they are just a classic in my eyes.

The next thing is different blouses. I know this one is also a very obvious one. But there is a lot of different styles and colours out there. There is a store called Nara Camicie(see their online site Here)where my mom buys her blouses. They are a bit expensive but they are a great quality and they have amazing styles.
 
 

Big, huge bags! Yes all girls need a nice and spacious bag. When you are a business woman bag is a place where all things we could possible need get carried.
 

Hope this gave you at least some inside into Scandal main characters style.

NEW YEAR, NEW ME?

First of all happy 2015 everyone!It is so unbelievable to me that it is already 2015. I haven't yet comprehended the fact that a year went  by. And we are in a new one.
I am not a person who really makes a big deal out of celebrating New Years. I like hanging out with my friends which is what I did this year. I was at a friends house where we just played games, ate and had fun together. It was nice but I think it can be done any day of the year.
Anyway, I don't want to ramble to much so I wanted to make this post about new year resolutions.
Do you guys believe in them?
I don't and I am going to tell you why. Because it is all about deciding to change something and that can be done anytime. You shouldn't wait for a new year to do something you thing that can make you better, happier, enriched, etc. It is a good push for some people and I am not saying you shouldn't do something just because it's new year and you don't want to fall into the whole new resolutions wagon.
But I support any kind of changes people decide to do for them. I think human beings are supposed to develop and we should always thrive to make ourselves better.
The year 2014 has been an interesting one for me to say the least. I think every year brings me new challenges and so will 2015.
My "New Year Resolutions" as a lot of the people call them or how I like to call them "changes to improve yourself" are:
- firstly starting to do more things out of my comfort zone
- stand behind every decision I make(even if it turns out to be a bad one.. we learn from our mistakes right?)
- and most of all do things that make me happy no matter what other people say
New year doesn't mean something will change on it's own. You always have to decide and do something by yourself. Nevertheless make 2015 a great one, more adventures and especially a happier one!
