EXPLORING MALLORCA | OUT AND ABOUT

I love the sea, I find it fascinating. The infinite different shades of blue, the slow yet violent movement of the water. Maybe it's because I grew up in an island or maybe it's because I now live in this crazy massive city and whenever I see the sea I get this sense of freedom and peacefulness. 

When I went back home to Mallorca about a week ago I went on a little day trip with my dad and my sister. Our final destination was this place I had never heard of called S'Estaca in the North of the island, which is a tiny beautiful town right by the sea with incredible views to the cliffs. It is not accessible by car so we had to walk for about 40 min but it was definitley worth it. 






The day we went it was very windy, the giant waves crashing onto the cliffs looked stunning and it reminded me of Hawaii (even though I've actually never been to Hawaii...). We also found a gorgeous spot to have some breakfast - there was this incredible terrace with the most beautiful views I have ever seen. It beats that time I had breakfast overlooking the Pyrenees and that is saying something. 








We got very lucky because even though it was ridiculously windy, it was also super sunny so everything looked extra beautiful. The whole town was pretty much empty since it's not peak season yet, making the whole experience that bit more peaceful and relaxing. If you're in Mallorca or are planning on going soon, you should definitley visit this place!

THE PERFECT JOGGERS

Whilst I am not a jet setter just yet, I do travel back and forth between Spain and London quite often. A few years ago I always tried to look cute à la Victoria Beckham when boarding a plane. Now, I just try to be as comfortable as possible. 

It doesn’t matter how long the flight is, there is nothing I hate more than wearing tight jeans and having to sit down in that tiny seat with barely any leg space. I’ve also stopped wearing any make up whatsoever because dry airplane air + foundation = skin disaster. 

I am not one to share my outfits very often on my blog but I think I’ve found my go-to airport look and I don’t think I’ve ever been happier (that might or might not be a slight exaggeration). Most people reach for leggings when travelling - they look cute and it’s like wearing nothing. The problem is they’re not very warm and I always get a bit chilly in planes. 


The other day I switched my go-to leggings for my new Nike joggers* and, in spite of the extra four hours I had to spend in that plane because if a delay, I was the comfiest I have ever been. I was warm and I honestly felt like I was wearing PJs. To make it even better, they look kinda trendy so it seems like you’re actually trying. I got a size XS so that they would fit a bit tighter and look more chic - I think my plan worked. *goes away and pats herself on the back*


I paired my joggers with my black Nike trainers, a basic white top from ASOS and an oversized denim jacket. Because the outfit was quite simple I added some accessories - my Daniel Wellington watch, a Kate Spade gold bangle and some earrings. Et voilà, you have the perfect outfit for the airport!

WHAT I'VE BEEN WATCHING RECENTLY




There's nothing better than getting home after a very long and exhausting day, taking a shower, grabbing something to eat and put on your favourite TV show. Recently I have been branching out a bit and discovering new shows - ya know, gotta keep it fun. 

Some of these shows have bene running for a while but I've just got into them, and some others are fairly new. But they are all equally amazing and addictive so be warned you will want to watch more than one episode at a time. 

Scandal


Where do I even start with Scandal. It's got me HOOKED, I am not joking when I say I watched 5 seasons in the space of three weeks. It's so intense and every episode leaves you wanting more and more. If you've never heard of it, it focuses on Olivia Pope who runs a crisis management firm who is also involved with the United States President and the White House. If you like a good drama, this series is for you.


Riverdale


This one started only recently and it reminds me a lot of Pretty Little Liars so if you like PLL, you'll probably like Riverdale too. It is based on the characters by Archie Comics and Cole Sprouse is one of the main characters so that alone made me want to watch it, well that and my friend Kate (@katewilson96 on Instagram) raving about it. 

It follows a group of teenagers after the sudden death of one of the school's cool kids, hence why it reminds me of PLL so much. 

The Catch


I started watching The Catch after it premiered last spring - and to be honest the only reason I watched it was because I love anything Shonda Rhimes makes, that woman is an absolute genius. As expected, I loved the series and it is now one of my favourites.

Alice Vaughan is the main character, who runs a private investigation private firm and becomes a victim of fraud after finding out her fiancé isn't who he says it is. I'm not going to say anything else because I don't want to spoil it for you, but trust me it is a great show!

What have you been watching recently?

BEST HEALTHY VEGAN CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES






Healthy cookies are my favourite things to bake. Sugar-free, banana anD oats, raisin, even chickpea - I've tried it all. The other day I was desperately craving cookies (thank you, hormones) but I was over sugary, buttery and god knows what else yet delicious cookies I usually buy at the grocery store so I went on my beloved Pinterest in search for a good recipe. 

I found a recipe for vegan chewy chocolate cookies, which looked incredible. I didn't use that exact recipe, but it was my source of inspiration. I kind of made a slightly healthier version and they were de-li-cious, perfect for a snack or dessert! Next time, I want to try and use milk, dark and white chocolate instead of just dark as I feel like it would be even better (and I loooove white chocolate).

These take less than 30 min to make and are super easy, so no excuses! 

Ingredients 

1 banana
1/4 cup agave syrup
1/4 almond milk
1 tsp vanilla extract 
2 tbsp olive oil
1 cup of wholemeal flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
Dark chocolate chips (as many as you want)
2 tbsp of desiccated coconut flakes

Instructions 


In a large mixing bowl smash the banana and mix it with the agave syrup and almond milk. Add in the flour, olive oil, baking powder and vanilla extract. Mix it all together until it's smooth and clump-free. 

You can buy chocolate chips at any supermarket but I personally prefer buying a bar of chocolate and chop it up. I used Lindt 90% dark chocolate - it is on the bitter side and not ideal if you want something sweet, in which case you can use 70% or even milk chocolate. Whatever you decide to go for, add it into the mixture together with the coconut. Mix until it's all evenly distributed.

Line a baking tray with parchment paper and scoop the dough onto the tray, flattening each cookie a bit. You can make them as big or as small as you desire, this recipe will probably yield about 10 small ones or 5 big ones (depending how big they are!). 

Finally, bake them for 10-15 min at 180˚C and enjoooy!
