The Christmas Tag!

The Christmas Tag!

Hello every one!

I'm feeling a little chat today. I'm sooo much in Christmas spirit now, because for the passed week I've been buying and making presents, listening to Christmas songs and decorating. Ohh, whenever there are holidays I feel so peaceful and relaxed, though I still have to go to school.  And also I've been baking a LOT, I mean the whole house smeels like cinnamon and chocolate :) - #BAKEMAS everyone :D.

You all know how much I love tags as you can learn more about me and I can learn something about you too, reading your tags. Because it's Christmas season, why not do a Christmas tag. Have fun reading it and also doing it yourself! I'd love to see your answers :).

Recipe: Gluten-free Gingerbread Cookies. #BAKEMASday5
Hello everyone!

Wow, already half way through #BAKEMAS. It's 5th day of the series. Since the last recipe for gingerbread cookies was rather on the heavy side, today will be something lighter.

I'm actually writing this post really really late for me as it literally should be up an hour ago. But you know how I'm organised when it comes to blogging :).

Movies to watch this Christmas!

Movies to watch this Christmas!
Hi there!

Since I have to wait till January for the newest episode of Suits, I've been watching so many movies lately. And I have to say that even though I'm a sucker for some good series, I much more prefer films. It's actually really difficult to find a good TV show that I might like as there are very similar, especially those on Comedy Central.

Recipe: Lebkuchen. #BAKEMASday4

Recipe: Lebkuchen. #BAKEMASday4

Hi everyone!

As always I should be studying instead of writing a post, but I can't help it. It's way more interesting than calculating the derivative of the function.

Today is the foruth day of #BAKEMAS, where I share 9 Christmas recipes before the actual holiday. And today's recipe is lebkuchen! If you don't know what it is, basically they are soft German gingerbread cookies with frosting. And they are said to be the world's best gingerbread cookies- I can't quite agree with that. But they sure taste very good.

Festive Makeup Look- Christmas edition!

Festive Makeup Look- Christmas edition!

Hello everyone!

Today I wanted to show you a little makeup look, perfect for Christmas dinner. Very classic golden eyes, but instead of red lip I used a nude peach lipstick for a softer finish (which I totally forgot to put on before shooting, sorry!). Let's get started!

Recipe: Vegan Dark Chocolate Macaroons. #BAKEMASday3

 Hi!

First week of #BAKEMAS is going to end with recipe for these delicious macaroons. I got it from Minimalist Baker, probably my favourite vegan cooking blog. But I gotta say they were pretty difficult to make as the mixture is dry and hard to shape. Fortunately I managed to make them.

Recipe: Vegan Poppy Seed Cake. #BAKEMASday2

 Hello!

Another post from #BAKEMAS series. But today's recipe is going to be an opposite from the first one- healthy and vegan poppy seed cake. Much more lighter as it does not contain any flour (gluten free) and dairy. But it's still moist, rich in flavour and just delicious. I also made some caramel on top of it as it's not that sweet, and sprinkled it with peanuts.

Recipe: Cinnamon rolls with walnuts and cream cheese frosting. #BAKEMASday1

Hi there!

It's the first post of the #BAKEMAS series and because it's the first I decided to make something traditional- cinnamon rolls. I'm already throwing out there that this recipe is not healthy like others on this blog. And it's definately not vegan, the only semi healthy thing is non-refined sugar that I added. I mean, it's Christmas soon so why do we have to limit ourselves at the most wonderful time of the year?

Getting into Christmas spirit- BAKEMAS!

Getting into Christmas spirit- BAKEMAS!

Hello there!

The time has flown so fast. I mean it's December already and I still feel like in the middle of the year. Also 27 days left till 2016! I don't think I have ever experienced such a rushed year. To addition I didn't even have time to prepare any presents, which happens so rarely for me. As you know I'm a control freak, everything has to be ready in advance. This year I kinda failed, but I still have some time- 20 days- to sort everything out.

Recipe: Granola.

Recipe: Granola.


Hi there!

Recently I've been obssesed with 2 breakfast foods: avocado and egg on toast and granola with yogurt, fruit and peanut butter. Today I'm going to talk about the second one.

I think you all have heard about granola, it's been very popular lately for its nutritional properties, loved by vegans and generaly healthy food fans. And I decided to give it a go. But you know me and my passion for cooking ang baking, I had to make it myself.

Turning my dreams into reality / Social Media Detox

Turning my dreams into reality / Social Media Detox

Hello everyone!


I'm coming to you with another chatty post. As you could see I haven't been really active on social media recently. The reason is that I decided to go on as I call 'social media detox'. A couple of weeks or more ago I watched a Youtube video by Estee Lalonde, where she went on a digital detox meaning no phone, TV and internet for whole 2 days. And as I was watching her struggle I came into a conclusion that I myself spend too much time looking on my phone and just blankly scrolling through Facebook and other social media.

My Current Makeup Routine.

My Current Makeup Routine.


Hi!

Wow, long time no see. I can't even remember the last time I had such a break from blogging due to being busy all the time. During those 14 days I felt pretty much empty, I hadn't done anything I like: no watching movies or series, spending a lot of time in the kitchen and also just spending the evening on relaxing. Only studying, studying and once more studying. On the happy note though I passed my theory driving test and on 1st December I'm having the practical test, the last part separating me from getting my driving license. But I'm so excited, I've been waiting for this moment to happen since the holidays when I started the training.

Hi there!

I'm kinda late for this one, but I wanted to do this post anyways. You know how I love decorating rooms, especially mine- I change it at least once a month :). So I decided to show you today how I decorated my room for fall. Nothing too much, some bits and bobs there and there.

Enjoy!

My Music.

My Music.
via TheArtMad.com
Hi guys!

I absolutely love music. I listen to it every single day, anywhere I can, besides urban transport. And there's a quite funny reason why. Whenever I'm listening to music I just turn off and there were several times when I missed my bus, because I didn't notice it. So yeah, it wasn't funny then as I was late.


Because I have such a passion for music I wanted to share with you some of my absolute faves: albums and singles. I mostly listen to either R&B or hip hop and rap. I also love old music, like really old- Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong for example. I'm playing it whenever I'm doing my homework or just chilling. And to addition since I use Spotify for all of my music, I have tons of playlists for almost every occasion. You can follow me here.


Starting with albums my favourite ones are:

  • Channel Orange by Frank Ocean
  • Wildheart by Miguel
  • 20/20 Experience by Justin Timberlake
  • In The Lonely Hour by Sam Smith
  • Kauai by Childish Gambino
  • Trigga by Trey Songz
  • Nick Jonas by Nick Jonas (obvs)
  • Communion by Years & Years
  • A Kid Named Cuid by Kid Cudi
  • Graduation by Kanye West
  • Handwritten by Shawn Mendes
At the moment I really enjoy Unbreakable Smile by Tori Kelly, Swaay by DNCE and Get Lifted by John Legend.

For my favourite songs I have a separate playlist.




And my favourite playlists:



I hope you'll enjoy those songs as much as I am!


Bye,

Kate xx

Makeup and Bath & Body Works Haul.

Hello!

Wow, I really missed this- sitting, chilling and just writing. That's one of my happy places :). Anyways, I coming to you with a haul. I can't quite remember when I did a haul, but I believe it was 3 months ago? Actually let me check. Yes, indeed it was in July. So since I bought some crap I thought why not showing it to you today ;).

How to stay organised!

How to stay organised!
via Livvyland

Hi there!

I know, two posts in a week? Craaazy. But I have some free time, why not spending it on writing?

Many of you, like me, go to school right now. And it's not the most exciting thing to do really. But sometimes it can be a huge pain in the ass, especially when you have final exams or just loads of homework to do. And that's where I come to help you. Not with the homework but with sorting everything out so you won't miss or loose anything.

Belive me, I'm such an organised freak. Whenever I have some things to do, even the obvious ones I won't forget, I make a list. I also have tons of small notebooks, blog stuff related too, just to make sure I have everything with me. That made me think that I can sit down and write about it, how I stay organized. Let's get started!

1. Always keep a calendar with you!
I think I told you already but I always have a calendar in my bag. Whatever happens I always write it down so I won't forget about it: tests, essays, appoinments, ect. Very handy!

2. Post it notes are the key.
If you have something important to do, take a note, write it down and stick it where it's the most visible. I have many of them stuck to my board and I also use them to mark the pages in the books. The most important office essential in my opinion.

3. Make a 'to do' list every week.
I hate those times when almost everyday you have many stuff to deal with, especially during preparation to finals. To make things easier write a list for example about subjects you have to study and plan it for the whole week. You can also make a list of chores, it doesn't have to be always school related.

4. Don't leave everything to the last moment.
I was a guilty on this one. Writing an essay just a day before the deadline, studying for a test just before the lesson. But I finally got my shizz together to separate even an hour a day just for studying. Make a break from a tv show or a Youtube video, an hour isn't that long :).

5. Don't be messy.
It's a common habit that we sometimes leave stuff somewhere it doesn't belong. But you have to just force yourself to not make a mess again. I was a messy person and I can be whenever I'm too lazy. However being organised also means having a clean space around you. So don't make a mess!

Those are all of the tips. I hope I helped you at least in a little way :).

See you soon!


Bye,

Kate xx

Life update.

Life update.

Hello there everyone!

Yes, that was indeed a long break between posting. I'm just really busy studying for my exams that I have barely time for anything, including relaxing. So please understand that sometimes there won't be any post for a week. I'm actually thinking about posting 1-2 times a week now, but mostly once. And don't worry, I'm 100% sure when all this stressing time passes, I'll give you thousands of posts. But not at the same time!

Anyways, I hope that you're having a great time. If you would like any updates, check my social media, links above.

Next post will be as soon as possible, or even sooner :).

The BEST Hot Chocolate!

The BEST Hot Chocolate!

Hello everyone!

Hot chocolate is probably one of my favourite drinks ever, although I don't drink it very often because it's very sweet and caloric. But then those times comes when you just want to be all cozy and drink a huge mug of good hot chocolate and be relaxed as ever. So I thought as it's autumn/winter season that I'll share with you my recipe for hot chocolate, which in my opinion is the best hot chocolate I have ever tasted.
Side note: it contains alcohol, so don't try this kids ;).

How to: Braided Side Bun.

How to: Braided Side Bun.

Hi there!

Recently I've been doing more hairstyles because I sometimes get really bored by looking almost the same everyday. And I also run out of dry shampoo, which was a life saver for me as I don't really like washing my hair during the week- I'm just being lazy.

My current favourite hair products / New hair!


Hello there everyone!

As you saw in the last post my hair looks kinda different. Well, about a month ago Mary and I went to a new hairdresser and we both get a cut (if you want to see Mary's click here). Not only I got my ends cut but also I had my hair dyed to deep brown colour, for the first time! Believe me I was so scared sitting there with dye in my hair thinking it will either detroy my hair or turn out a different colour. Fortunately it all turned out great and I still love it, although it faded a little bit from all the washing.

My perfect dark red lips.

My perfect dark red lips.
 Hi there!

I'm writing this post laying down in bed and drinking a hot tea with honey. Yes, I'm sick, again. But it's not the topic of today's post as I already did write about being sick (link). Nothing like a little promo from now and then, am I right? ok...

One of the best things about autumn is fashion and makeup in my opinion. Oversized sweaters, big fluffy scarfs, long coats and my favourite dark red lips. Even though this year I first started wearing a dark red lip, I loved it the second I put the lipstick on. It is such a classy and pretty look.

How I edit my Instagram photos.

Hello everyone!


My favourite social media is Instagram. Whenever I'm on it I could watch the photos for hours. And I also like to discover new accounts with amazing pictures (I have some favourite photographers now :) ). But what's more exciting than taking and sharing photos? That's why I love it.

New name, new begining- from Kate Home DIY.

New name, new begining- from Kate Home DIY.

Hello there everyone!

So I think I owe you some explanation, because you may be confused. I changed the name of the blog from Kate Home DIY to Little Pink Succulent and of course the look of it. And in this post I'm going to tell you exactly why I did that.

Do you remember that some posts ago, even longer than that, I wrote I'm not really keen on the content of the blog I create. I even posted that I sometimes have writer's block. But this time it wasn't the cause of today's situations.

You see, the main idea of this blog was sharing creativity. What's more creative than creating something new like new projects, new dishes, new tastes and looks? And I thought that on this blog (on Kate Home DIY to be exact) I will just share some recipes and DIYs, especially DIYs. But no sooner I started publishing tips, photos and just started sharing my life.

I felt thet the name Kate Home DIY didn't fully expressed what this blog is truly about, because what Home and DIY have to do with a lifestyle blog? Yes, nothing. So about 2 months ago I started thinking of a new name. Believe me, I had more than I have fingers. I even tried mixing 2 random words, which went terrible. Without much hope I decided to leave it somewhere at the end of my mind. Maybe someday I will came with the name. And I did, 4 days ago.

Why Little Pink Succulent? To be honest it was as random as it sounds. I was just lying on my bed with laptop in front of me and then I looked at my windowsill, where I keep succulents. And it got to me. Just like that. And pink because it's one of my favourite colours.

So I hope you'll like all the changes. I spent so much time editing this blog you can't imagine. Let me know what you think down in the comments!

Also, I changed the name on my social media too. Click below or above on the menu bar. And you can follow me there if you want :).


Pinterest- the same
Twitter- the same


See you next week!


Bye,

P.S. If you go on katehomediy.blogspot.com there's a post about moving to this site. But I won't publish there anymore and sooner or later it will be deleted.

So 5 days ago I was tagged by Mary (crazyinlife.uk) to do the Back to School Tag. And since I still feel like it's just the begining of school, instead of showing you another recipe (which will be soon) I've decided to do this instead. Enjoy!

Hello everyone!

So the following weekend I went away to visit my grandparents. They live more than 300km from me so I don't see them very often. Not only I got to visit my family, I also ate some fresh vegetables and fruits that my grandparents grow in their huge garden. And since they live on a countryside I went for a long walk too. So today I'm sharing with you some of the photos I took. And there are a lot of them. Enjoy!

20 Things I learned in high school.

20 Things I learned in high school.

Hello!

School season is back for good now, which is the worst. Don't get me wrong, I love learning, but in my opinion school is such a waste of time sometimes. But enough about that. I'm not here today to complain.

As you know I'm a senior this year so I have spent more than 2 years in high school. And since then I've learned some things, not only science-related. It couldn't be more true that at school you also get life lessons- not talking about paying taxes but about how the world really works, how adult life really looks. So that is what I'm going to talk about: things I learned in high school, enjoy!

Recipe: Smoked Paprika and Garlic Kale Chips.

Recipe: Smoked Paprika and Garlic Kale Chips.

Hello!

As you already know I'm pretty obssesed with kale at the moment. And since I've used it for almost everything: juices, smoothies, pasta, sandwiches and so on, I've never made kale chips, which got really popular recently.

So I looked up for some recipes and came up with this combination: smoked paprika and garlic kale chips. For your information the last time I tried to make chips it turned up terrible. I wanted to make carrot chips and when I put them out of the oven they were the size of a small button. Definately wasn't full after that.

Sleepover and Sunset Photos!

Sleepover and Sunset Photos!
Hello everyone!

Finally I have some time to write a post, because I've been pretty much busy since monday. First of all my bestie Mary came to visit. We were about to go skating but to our surprise it started to rain. The last time it happened was about a month ago- our country has a big problem with drought. So we had to change our plans complitely. Consequently we went to a new library (I know, very exciting!) and even though it was like 5-minute walk and we had umbrellas, we got all wet. I told you, it was raining like crazy.

Honesty...

Honesty...
Hello there!

Well, that was really unexpected. No blogging for 11 days. Those summer holidays did get to me. And I won't even start to excuse myself because we all know where it will go anyway. So today I finally sat down in front of my laptop and I feel like 'talking' instead of showing you another recipe or DIY. And it's not just another 'update on my life' kind of thing. Just a little chit chat about things that happens to everyone. So if you are in a good humor I recommend reading this post another time, because it will be deep and at the end it'll probably make no sense. But trying doesn't hurt, does it?

Do you ever think about the current 'life' that you're living? About things that are happening? About people you surround yourself with? Well, I do now. See, I am in a very different position than I was before. Recently I found out some things about me and people I surround myself with and that is what I'm talking about today.

There's something that troubles me all the time and have been troubling since I went to primary school. This thing is friends. And I'm 100% sure that I'm not the only one.

And also I wanted to update you on some stuff, because why not :).

So it's the same style like monthly favourites, yet about what I love currently. Enjoy!

Makeup Haul!

Makeup Haul!

Helloo!
It's been such a long time since I did my first ever haul (almost a year now), which you really liked seeing the blogger statistics. So I decided to do another one today, but all about makeup.

It's not as many products as you see other hauls on Youtube for example, but still I wanted to show you what I bought. There was a sale at my favourite drugstore called Hebe, for Maybelline and L'Oreal products so I bought some things from there. And I also bought one thing from TK Maxx (or TJ Maxx if you're from the USA).

All of the products I already tried, so I will include a mini review of them too. Enjoy!

Finally have some quality time to write a post. Four days ago I had a pleasure hosting Mary (my BFF) in my house. We talked, watched 'K-Pax' (very strange movie) and also ate some great food including this pizza, which I'm going to talk about today.

While searching for a recipe for dinner I came across this one: low carb cauliflower crust pizza on PopSugar- one of my favourite fitness sites right now. And at first to be honest I wasn't sure if it will actually taste good, but it was too interesting to not try.

How To Earn Money During Summer.

How To Earn Money During Summer.

Hello everyone!

Long time no see, I know, I just have never been so busy in my life yet. Reason? I have a job! Real life job. I'm working as a waitress in a bar and also a side chef specialized in making sandwiches. Even though I work for almost 11h (last week for 3 days straight) and I'm really exhausted, it all pays off because of the atmoshpere. I'm fortunate to work with awesome people, who always cheer me up in every situation.

And there came an idea of today's post. How to earn some extra money during Summer, especially holidays. I remember myself last year after the begining of vacations, when I started looking for a job. As espected I didn't find anything, it was just too late. And I had literally nothing to do, because I already been away on holidays. This year, I thought, I'm not going to sit around with nothing. I also wanted to make some money, earn experience, meet new people and see how it is to work.

Recipe: World's Healthiest Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Recipe: World's Healthiest Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Hi!

Another recipe, yes, for cookies. And today just a very quick introduction, because I'm not feeling very opened. I got the recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie blog, which I'm obssesed with at the moment. And for probably first time ever I strictly sticked with the recipe, there were no changes. Or at least I don't think so.

These cookies as amazing as cookies can be. Soft and chewy on the inside and crunchy on the outside. Perfect healthy snack! To be honest I ate them for dinner, so... not really responsible, but they are that tasty :).

I saw that my most viewed posts are about makeup, so I finally decided to write about my current makeup routine.

But if I'm in a rush I can literally do this makeup in under 10 minutes.

Recipe: Veggie Super Bowl!

Recipe: Veggie Super Bowl!

Hello!

Yes, another recipe and it's not for cookies ;).

So many times did I see this dish on the Internet, it got really popular. Consequently I had to give it a go. I searched through some recipes and I finally found a post on a blog (which of course I can't remember) showing how to make a basic veggie bowl.

Today I'm going to show you how I made mine. And to be honest I thought it's going to taste like a boring salad, but it did not. Oh no. It was so delicious! And it so comprehensive dish, you can easly change ingriedients without worrying that it might taste awful.

In addition, it's a very healthy and filling dish. It kept me full for about 4 hours! So I really recommend you to give it a try :).

I need to say something...

I need to say something...

Hi there!

I don't know how to start this post really. Well, it started more than 2 weeks ago. I said that even though I'm going on vacation, I will be still posting on my blog. And then it happened. First I had no Internet for about 5 days. And when I finally had it, I was just too tired. Also I was reading Harry Potter every night, because I got addicted. Anyway.

I got home on Wednesday. And it's friday now. You may wonder why I didn't post anything yet. Well, there are 2 reasons. The first is I'm having right now a writer's block. And the second is that I didn't want to think about it. Don't get me wrong. I love blogging so much, it's a very big part of my life (especially when I started this blog). But it means that I have to put a lot of work into it, which I do everytime I write a post. It takes me at least an hour and a half to write single post, because as you know I am a perfectionist. All photos have to be edited perfectly, every word has to be written right and the post has to look exactly how I wanted it to look. So it's a really difficult work.

And as always after work you need to take some time to rest. And during my trip I thought I should take a rest not only from blogging, but from Internet too. And those 2 weeks were actually really relaxing. But now it's time to come back and start living the old life. And to be honest I kind of missed it.

So as I have an endless Internet connection now, I will post as I used to- every 3 days (usually on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays with My Week In Photos). If you want to you can subscribe to my blog by entering an email on the side bar or you can also follow me on social media:


Ok, see you soon!

My Travel Essentials.

My Travel Essentials.
Hello!
Finally I have Internet connection. I know I said I'll be uploading posts regularly, as I always use to. But everywhere we went, there was no WiFi or it was very expensive.

Anyways. As I'm connected now, why not write a post?

So I've been travelling for about 5 days now, curently laying on the bed in Switzerland and I came up with an idea for a post. Firstly I thouoght of doing What's In My Beauty Travel Bag, but I have a lot of it. And I also have no space nor good lighting to take some photos of it. That's why I wrote down my travel essentials, not only beauty related. So here we go!

1. A book


It's a must for me as I love reading books, especially during vacations. I don't really want to be on my computer then, because holidays for me are also an escape from the Internet.
Like I said in my last post I took Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone, which I literally just read. And I'm about to read the second book.

A little chit chat...

A little chit chat...
My bed setup.
Hi!

I promised a post today (for you yesterday as I'm writing this at almost midnight) but I didn't come up with the idea that will not require taking photos. Sooo... there's that.

And you may be probably wondering why am I on the computer this late, it's because I'm leaving tomorrow (today) at 8 o'clock and I will have to sit in the car for approximately 10 hours. And the best way to make this go faster is to go sleep. So now I have to be awake until like 3 am, then I will sleep away the trip. I also made myself some green tea to keep me 'alive'.

I already packed most of my stuff and I already have that feeling when you think that you forgot something but you don't know what. I'm taking with me a lot of camera equipment, because I'm planning to take some amazing pictures whilst being there.

My luggage

Small part of the outfit. Loving this hat I bought yesterday from Stradivarius.
Oh, I'm talking and talking about this trip, but I don't even know if I told you where I'm going, well, precisely. I'm going to Austria, Northern Italy, Switzerland and Germany with my parents. It's probably going to be one of the last trips I've been to with them, because I'm too old for that stuff. To be honest I'm only going with them to see the real Disney castle, New Swanstone Castle. I have always dreamt to visit it. It is sooo amazingly breathlessly beautiful.

And we will also see some glaciers, but that's not important :).

Ok... How was your day today (yesterday)? Mine wasn't great to be honest. First of all: Wednesday. The worst day of the week, because I have 8 hours of lessons then. I woke up at 6am and came back at 5:30pm. Rediculous. Also I had an english exam and german test. Cool, cool. To make things worse it was boiling today. Literally! I couldn't even pay attention because my whole body was baking. And you can believe me or not, my school turn off the heating like last week. Pretty damn stupid.

My cat drives me crazy today. He almost ripped my sweater whilst catching a fly.

I also had a very long phone conversation with my bestie, even though we met just yesterday in the shopping centre.

Sticking with the subject. After yesterday's and today's attempt at finding white slip on trainers, I lost hope in the women's fashion (if I can say so). I was looking everywhere for them, even in Tesco, but I didn't find the right ones. Anywhere I looked there were silver shoes, golden shoes, white leather shoes. Come on, who buys leather shoes for Summer?! Only those who live in the freaking mountains. Or Russia. And the same thing happend to me whilst I was looking for a black backpack and a white t-shirt (50 Kate's points if you remember that :) ). Why do all these clothing shops can't make just normal, plain clothes? I mean, there are 'basic' lines, but in my opinion it has nothing to do with basic. AND if I find something normal, it's expensive, like very expensive. And don't even get me started at it.

But on the more positive note I'm starting reading again. Because I'm going for so long I have to have something with me that won't keep me bored. And I will be reading Harry Potter! I'm such a huge Harry Potter's fan. Obviously I mean the films. But I have always wanted to read it. Firstly it scared me because of how big it looked. However I've read so many big books that I thought I give it a go.
Oh my, I wrote more than I usualy write on my polish lessons. Ok, I think it's enough for today. I'm really really sleepy, and tired. I try to do my best and not fall asleep as soon as I switch off the computer. Maybe I will watch some TV series.

See you soon!
Bye,
Kate xx


P.S. Because of the trip, there will be no My Week In Photos posts. There will be just 'normal' ones.
