Let the Games Begin

I finally got my hands on a Hunger Games edition!

I’ve been looking for these series for over a year, but they could not be found anywhere in Belgium. Thank god for the people who decided to make a movie out of it, otherwise I might have never found the book at all.
I finished this book in two days. It where busy days filled with classes and social ‘events’ but I just had to read every spare moment I had!

I can’t wait to see the movie but most of all I can’t wait to read the rest of the series. Locating them will be another problem I guess ;).

Now I’m off to study for a while,work on a paper and prepare dinner.
I’m taking another yoga class tonight as yesterday’s noon class was really invigorating and I’ve finally come to the point that I can walk down the stairs and not feel every muscle in my body aching the days after that type of yoga class. I am keeping it low key with an easy flow class though, one ashtanga class a week is plenty for now.

Love, M.

Can’t Sleep, Won’t Sleep

What to do when you feel all sleepy and would like to snuggle unto the couch with a blanket and hot chocolate but you actually have to study for your exams in January??

You try to make the best of your situation, listen to happy music, treat yourself to yummy tea and have something delicious and energy boasting for lunch!
Caffeine and some sugar? Sounds perfect!

‘Gingerbread Coffee Oats’

In a bowl combine 4 T of oats with a few dashes of cinnamon, 2 T of instant coffee and 1 t of sugar if you like things sweet. Add  soy milk until everything is covered and microwave it on high for 3 minutes. Add some more milk when it’s done to make it a bit creamier.

Use half a slice of gingerbread to stir into the oats so they ‘melt’ a bit and get all gooey, use the other half  to crumble on top.

We got this gingerbread in a gift pack and it is amazing, you can really taste the cinnamon and it has pearls of sugar on top. And look at those gooey, sugary pieces in that slice!

Now back to studying and listening to happy music, but it’s okay, blankets aren’t just for snuggle unto couches, you can wear them just as well while studying and the same applies for hot chocolate.

Love, M.
