CASUAL

               When I hear casual I automatically think comfortable. Recently due to the fact that I finished uni for summer and have been spending a lot of time at home I have become a master of casual. Joggers, baggy sweatshirts and fluffy socks are what I love to wear when I spend a whole day at home. However, a time always comes when I have to crawl out of my cave of happiness (a.k.a. my bed) and get out there. What happens then? Usually I don't have a problem with picking a lovely, girly outfit, but sometimes I do struggle. That's when I go for a casual-girly look to compromise my laziness with the want of looking feminine.
              
               Even thought that wasn't the cause of the choice of my today's outfit (in fact, it was the undecided British weather) I just wanted to make this point. :-) The 'transition stage' between your casual and representative looks is always something good to go through as it may actually encourage you to mix both styles - wear stilettos with harem pants and pumps with a little black dress. ;-)

EATING HEALTHY

               Hey! I've had another over-a-month-long break from blogging, but its major cause was not surprisingly my end-of-the-year exams... Since the day of my last exam (May 31st) I was relaxing to the maximum! I've been catching up on sleeping, reading books, seeing my friends and many, many more. It feels great to have so much free time now! 
               The extra time means I can finally concentrate on things like exercising and eating healthy. I am not diet-obsessed and I believe having about 4-5 meals a day approx. every 3 hours can help to lose 2-3 kg. That's what I tried and it really worked, so it's worth giving it a go. :-) Obvs, drinking plenty of water is essential, too. 
               To eat healthy I have to cook healthy. I am not a vegetarian, but on Monday I decided to make a veggie-based dinner and it was delicious. It wasn't as healthy as it was supposed as I didn't have a calorie controlled cooking spray, but oh well. ;-) The dish I prepared was stuffed mushrooms with garlic-flavoured French toast. Here's the result...
The dish is very easy to make - just mix couscous with a hot veg stock, sweetcorn, cherry tomato halves and sunflower seeds and stuff the mushrooms with the mixture, sprinkle with parmesan and bake. :-)
