Hallo alle zusammen. Ich melde mich noch ein letzes Mal, bevor wir Morgen früh in den Urlaub fliegen. Nach Griechenland gehts: Eine Woche Sonne, Strand, Meer und Erholung....
(Ich habe war keine Posts vorbereitet,  mir aber heute eine neue Speicherkarte gekauft!) Ich werde also VIELE Bilder machen und hoffentlich viele wundervolle Motive finden.

Finally it's time to say "Goodbye", because I'll be off to Greece tomorrow. It's my second flight and I'm really looking forward to see the sea again and get tan. So have a nice week!
I'll take a lot of pictures and relax so much!

Bisous bisous, Luu

Scrambled Tofu - "Rührtofu"

This (really) looks like scrambled egg. But it's vegan and made with tofu!
Hmmm. I ate it for about 3 to 4 times during the last weeks.

Scrambled Tofu:

- 200g tofu, mash it with a fork
- 1 onion, chopped
- olive oil, pepper, salt
- curry, paprika
- parsley, rosemary, etc. (any herbs you like)
(- soy creamer)

Put the mashed tofu and the chopped onion in a pan with some olive oil. Roast for about 5 minutes and then add spices and herbs. You can add some Tablespoons (soy) creamer to make it a little bit creamier (If you add some chopped vegetables or fruit it's like (bought) egg salad).

A friend showed me this blog and this recipe. And I tried and loved it immediately. It's great to eat it on a toast or just straight out of a bowl. Hmmm. Now I one a serving, even if I'm not hungry! 
Just try it! 
Bisous bisous, Luu

Yazio.de: Tipps und Tricks zum Thema gesunde Ernährung

 Yazio.de  ist ein Portal zur gesunden Ernährung (und zum Abnehmen). Besonders interessant finde ich den Artikel zum thema Vegan und Ernährungslexikon (Mineralstoffe, Nährstoffe, Vitamine, Zusatzstoffe, Gütesiegel...). Außerdem gibt es noch eine Liste zu Sportarten, welche Muskeln sie beanspruchen und wieviel man dabei verbraucht. Schaut doch einfach mal vorbei!
Viel Spaß beim Stöbern. Bisous, Luu

Working Space (Part One)

I made these pictures while I cut some fabric for a new jersey dress. I made this in our kitchen/ dining room. We have two spaces in our apartment where we sew or make any other creative thing. The huge table in the kitchen and the room on the upper floor of our home. In this room we have two normal sewing machines and an overlock machine. I got one sewing machine for my last birthday. I really like it and I really think I want/need to sew mor often. But at the moment I'm sometimes so demotivated and only some special things can get me out of this. These things can be a lovely blog post, a nice article or photography (taking pictures, looking at some). Watching a great film, talking to friends on a phone, enjoying the fresh air on our balcony....  great fabric, pattern, colours, music...
What helps you to get/stay motivated?

So these holidays are for relaxation AND sewing! And when I'll be 18 I now plan to open a little shop on Etsy.com. So I want to sew some pieces for it ( and to get better and more confident!).
Bisous bisous, Luu

Honeydew Melon Sorbet

Selfmade ice cream or sorbet is great food for summer and hot weather.  It's a great thing and so easy to make. Cut half a melon into little pieces, put them on a plate with plastic wrap and freeze for some hours. Then use a strong mixer to make the sorbet. You can add some sweetener, flavour and  maybe some drink. Mix the ingredients 'till it's a smooth creme/sorbet.

I'm off to celebrate my boyfriends birthday (tomorrow), we'll chill the whole night and have a great time. Btw I got my certificate today and I'm quite pleased. So have a nice day and night.
Bisous bisous, Luu

Colourful Lights & Partytime

Ich hatte riesig viel Spaß am otografieren am Samstag. Hier kommen nun also ein paar Bilder von Lichterketten, Wassertropfen und glühender Kohle. Die Party war echt toll und ich hab ein paar Menschen (besser) kennengelernt. Bald (in 1,7 Monaten) ist auch endlich mein 18er. Mal sehn wie und wo ich feier und dann hoffe ich mal gutes Wetter!! Genießt die Sonne, Wärme, Bilder, alles was euch glücklich macht!

Was so ein bisschen Veränderung schon ausmachen kann. Statt lila und gelb war der Raum grün mit blauem Licht. Ich glaub ich nehm meine kamera jetzt öfters auf Parties mit! Bisous, Luu

Party Party

(Sekt und Bananen Smoothie - natürlich getrennt)

 Die letzten Tage waren echt toll. 2 Tage super Wetter beim Beachen und unser Klassenfest (1 Jahr keine Klasse mehr) war auch hammermäßig!
Da habe ich zum bsp festgestellt, dass ich nicht die einzige vegane Person auf unserer Schule bin. Außerdem viele tolle und interessante Unterhaltungen und Diskussionen geführt und Brownies gegessen! 
Nachher gehe ich gleich mal auf den nächsten Geburtstag, auch mit Zelten, und erfreue mich erneut an Brownies ( und gegrillter Zucchini). Bis Morgen Abend also! Feiert auch schön und genießt das Wochenende! 

(Partytime: Thursday with my old class and today celebrating a birthday. "Sleeping" in a tent and having much fun eating brownies and grilled zucchini. Have a nice evening!)
Bisous bisous, Luu

Start your day with great breakfast

I love.... breakfast! And I love having much time for breakfast. It's so great to enjoy all the great food like chocolate oatmeal, selfmade croissants, pancakes, fruit salad, selfmade sweet baps, smoothies!

Chocolate Oatmal:
- 70g oats
- 2 Tbsp Cacao
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 tsp vanilla sugar
- 2 Tbsp stavia mix
- 1 Tbsp coffee
- 200-300ml soy drink

Mix all dry ingredients in a cooking pot and fill in the soy drink, untill it covers the oats and is two centimeters higher. Cook for about 5 minutes and then turn down the heat and cook it for 10-15 minutes with low heat. Let it cool down for some mintes and serve with (soy) yoghurt, some fruits, chocolate chips, etc.

PB & Chocolate Chip Dip or Spread

Peanutbutter & Chocolate Chip Dip / Spread:

- 300g Kichererbsen (300g garbanzos)
- 3 EL Erdnussbutter (3 Tbsp peanut butter)
- 1 TL Vanillezucker (1 tsp vanilla sugar)
- 4 EL Kakao (4 Tbsp cacao)
- 1 Handvoll Schokoladenchips ( 1 handful chocolate chips)
- 1 Prise Salz (1 pinch salt)
- 2-3 EL Sojadrink (2-3 Tbsp soy drink)
- 1-2 EL Agaven-/Ahornsirup ( 1-2 Tbsp agave/ maple syrup)

I sometimes make this spread or dip just to eat it straight out of the bowl. The recipe is adapted from Katie's Dips. It's also great as spread or to dip some snacks. Just mix all ingredients and blend untill it's a smooth creme. You also can omit the cacao and add other ingredients you like. 
I'm sewing a new skirt at the moment. So now I keep on doing.
have a nice day! Bisous bisous, Luu

Weekends are for relaxation

A great way to start a wonderful sunday is making your own (flavoured) croissants. I tried them with sugar & vanilla, cocholate creme, walnut and almond slices, etc. 

Some other great things to do for relaxation are a lot of food, going out for a walk, playing board games with friends, watching great movies, dancing, doing sports, sewing and talk with nice people. 
This weekend I tried Blueberry Pancakes for the first time. Therefore I used this recipe and added a handful blueberries. Today I want to use some blueberries again, but this time I'll bake some blueberry muffins. So happy baking and enjoy your day! Bisous bisous, Luu

selfmade and I love sewing

Two different kind of handles. One bag's got one handle and the other one as two (now I used almost all of this fabric).

I used an easy and square piece of fabric. I also used this lace for this Top. I still want to wear it. But there hasn't been any chance to wear it yet.

Little rainbow fishes. I wore it a week ago and I got some nice comments for it. Hmmm. I like it when people like my selfmade clothes! I also sewed a skirt with a lace edging. 
I'm so in Love with sewing and I also have enough time for it. 
I've also planned to sew a lot in my next holidays. I'll be 18 soon and then i'll open a shop on etsy.com. I'm still so excited and squirrely.
I'l write more about this (and other dreams) soon.
Have a nice evening! Bisous bisous, Luu

Keimling: Test der Green Star Elite Saftpresse

Ich habe es dieses Wochenende endlich geschafft die Green Star Elite Saftpresse von Keimling.de zu testen. Wir haben Karottensaft gemacht. Ich musste zwar zuerst mal herausfinden, wie die Maschine funktioniert, dann ging aber alles super und das reinigen war auch ganz einfach. zwar etwas aufwendig, wegen die vielen Einzelteilen. Der Saft hat aber sehr sehr gut geschmeckt!! (vorher hat mir Karottensaft nicht geschmeckt)

I tested the Green Star Elite Juice Squeezer form Keimling.de 
and I was so excited making carrot juice for the first time. I really liked it and the machine was great and easy to use!

Next time you'll see 4 things I've sewed during the last few weeks. Bisous bisous, Luu

(DIY) Selfmade case for sunglasses and handicraft work

I used these colourful pieces of paper for a cover of a letter. 
I want to use them for another project, too!

This is the second type of case I made for my sunglasses. It's a little bit larger than the first one. So it's for my bigger glasses. 
How to make:
* seize how much fabric you need around your glasses (Umfang ausmessen)
*  cut the fabric and serge all the edges (Zuschneiden und Kanten versäubern)
* turn down the left and right side and stitch it ( linke und rechte Seite jeweils einmal umschlagen und absteppen)
* turn down the upper side and sew a tube ( obere Kante umschlagen und kleinen Schlauch/Tunnel nähen)
* stitch the lower side and stitch the left side on the right one( alle restlichen Kanten zusammennähen)
* now you only have to sew a little ribbon to close the case ( Bändel für den Verschluss nähen und durch den Tunnel ziehen)
Tadaaa. now your sunglasses can't get scratched anymore! That's the reason why i started sewing these little bags. Today I finished another bigger bag (photos will follow soon) and sewed a "wound" blouse. I'm so in LOVE with sewing and finding new ways to use the fabric I have. 
Have a nice Sunday ( my will be full with sewing and baking!)
Bisous bisous, Luu

Two days with (great) food

asparagus soup in a café and checking out the new german "Elle"

selfmade by my mom. she wanted to bake some bread and it tasted like italian (ciabatta) bread

I took this fruit salad to school today, we planned to have a breakfast, but then I ate it up alone. Honeydew melon, blueberries, banana, peach, almond slices. Hm. Fruit salad is so good in summertime. Oh I love summer, but the weather's crazy at the moment.

I also made these brownies for school today. Some people said it wasn't sweet enough, but I don't like a huge amount of sugar in my food at the moment. So, the recipe for these brownies will follow!

After some time I made an oatmeal for breakfast again: Oatmeal, I replaced the coffee with cacao powder. And we had some fresh blueberries again. Today my mother brought a new bowl and I want to make some blueberry muffins (maybe). So my weekend will be full with food, friends, fun and sewing! (I made a little case for a pair of glasses, made a nice cover for a letter to Canada, sewed the handle for an easy bag) .

Now I'll go to bed and will speel as long as I need (because I didn't sleep much the last weeks. I had so little time for so many things to do, write or hand in....) Sressful time is finally over and I got every classtest back. 
Happy Weekend and Enjoy "working" for fun or relaxing!
Bisous bisous, Luu

My Week in food photos

These Pancakes are made with 2 Tbsp cacao powder and a little bit less drink, so the pancakes are getting bigger and fluffier! I love them with soy yoghurt and caramel sauce. Hm. (Do you have enough from seeing pancakes here? Or not?)

I filled theses Chocolate Muffin with a piece of chocolate. It was so huge and fluffy.

Vegan ice cream. Strawberry and mango. Made of sugar, water, fruit and ehm? - stabilizers and flavour enhancer. I don't really know it for sure, but the chef of the ice cream parlor promised me that there isn't any milk product in the ice cream. So, well, now I know where to get the wonderful fruity ice cream from!

We cooked together last weekend. And afterwards we played board games. That's the perfect way to forget all the trouble with learning for school. Hm and yummy food. I know this blog is turning more and more into a food blog. Couscous, tzatziki, vegan "meat" balls with tomatoe sauce and pita bread.

Now a little bit about my life: I danced on my toes for the second time today. It hurt a lot, but it was fantastic and I had so much fun anyway. On monday I'll try it again. And even after two days I can say every minute of practise makes me feel saver and happier. So I keep on doing it.

And tomorrow (thursday) I'll go to Stuttgart with my english course. So I'll make some photos and hope the weather will be good. Have a nice day, bisous bisous, Luu
