5-Bullet Friday | July 2018

Hi All!

I thought I will start a monthly post series, covering 5 things I enjoy and recommend at the time of the post. Yes, this post is very inspired by Tim Ferris’s weekly newsletter, I hope he won’t mind!

Here is the first dose of “5-Bullet Friday”:

  • Book to read —    

Fahrenheit 451 – a dystopian novel by Ray Bradbury.
Trust me.

  • Best shopping finds —

I always am so hopefull when the sales season comes but I end up buying only a few select things! This month I finally got a brown work/everyday handbag, after months of trying to find the perfect one with the perfect shape, size and colour! Finally, I came upon this Michael Kors beauty, Selma!

  • Currently watching — 

The Outlander, for the second time!

  • Blog to follow — 

Little Grey Box – I stumbled upon it on twitter couple of weeks ago and it became one of my favourite blogs! Here is an excerpt from their about page:

Hi! We’re Phoebe and Matt, award-winning Australian bloggers and professional travel creatives.

A few years ago we both realised we were unsatisfied with the way our lives were going and decided to leave our jobs to pursue our dreams. It was a big decision and a scary moment but it was also incredibly exciting and, hands down, the best thing we’ve ever done. Now, we travel the world creating useful guides and fun travel videos aimed to inspire and entertain.

Phoebe is a travel writer and photographer with a love for storytelling and making people laugh. Matt is a videographer and photographer with a passion for the great outdoors and big adventures.

  • Current obsession — 

Tiny houses – I cannot stop watching Youtube videos about them! It is somewhat an increasing trend wave and I cannot say I blame people for being interested in the concept. Minimalism and conscious living is something we should all learn more about.

 

I hope you have enjoyed my interpretation of a 5-Bullet Friday. Please let me know what you think in the comments below!

Have a wonderful weekend, all!

Style Files | Free People Has the Prettiest Dresses Right Now

If I would have to name my favourite online fashion destinations, Free People would be at the top of the list. Their dresses and jewellery are to die for, and go check out their lookbooks – it’s always so beautiful and inspiring!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Free People say that they create for a girl who is “smart, creative, confident and comfortable in all aspects of her being, free and adventurous, sweet to tough to tomboy to romantic. A girl who likes to keep busy and push life to its limits, with travelling and hanging out and everything in between.”

Are you like me and aspire to this image? Do you own anything from Free People?

Food Aesthetics | Black

I was scrolling through my Instagram and saw this image!

I have been storing black been pasta in my kitchen for a while now but it never got me thinking of endless possibilities out there. Personally, all black food sounds delicious to me… and looks even better!

Ps. I won’t focus on vegan only foods here because everything can be prepared with vegan ingredients.

Now, feast your eyes…

Could we have a recipe for black ice cream, you say?

Well, here you go!

I will be reinventing this recipe in a very near future! #charcoalordered

What do you think of this new food trend?

My Top 10 Favorite YouTube Channels

I was one of those weird teenagers, that didn’t really use YouTube, I know I can’t believe it myself either! But in recent years, I find myself with an overwhelming number of YouTubers I am subscribed to (139 is a lot right?).
Which ones do I currently watch the most? So here it is, in no particular order, the top ten channels I can’t stop myself from checking regularly.*

JennaMarbles
Why watch? Lots of funny videos!

Freelee the Banana Girl
I would probably credit Freelee for turning me to a plant-based diet. I recommend checking out her older videos from 2-3 years ago as recent ones are so different and I personally don’t enjoy watching them as much anymore. Make your own judgement though.

ThePersianbabe
Shopping hauls, makeup updates, lookbooks, videos are usually uploaded a couple of times a month.

Rachel Aust
I found Rachel through recommended videos and just really enjoy watching them. Check it out for great videos on minimalism, sports, beauty and even photography tips!

NinaAndRanda
Fun and positive channel run by vegan twins.

Glam&Gore
Ultimate makeup channel. As Mykie describes herself: “The swiss army knife of makeup tutorials. Beauty. Special Effects. Avant-garde. Industry advice. Products. Foundational teaching. There is something here for everyone, and if you hate makeup, I invite you to at least laugh at my strange face.”

Bonnyrebecca
Lots of recipes & what I ate today, plus random vegan lifestyle talk. I truly like the positive, mindful and kind outlook on life Rebecca promotes.

Evelina
Another makeup channel. Lost of fashion videos as well. What can I say, I’m a girly girl, ahahah

Stef Sanjati
Lots of positivity about life, beauty, lifestyle & honest transitioning story.

High Carb Hannah
Videos about starch based diet, sometimes “controversial” diet experiments, vegan weight loss story, minimalistic lifestyle & other down to earth talk

What are your favorites on YouTube? Or maybe you have an awesome channel yourself? Comment below!

*This post does not include anything related to music & doggies as I would never be able to finish writing it!
