A Healthy Pint On-the-Go

Hi Guys! I wanted to share today this simple recipe you can leave ready from the night before. I reused this pint from Halo Top which I love because it has the perfect size for a quality breakfast or snack.
This is definitely one of my favorites meals is very fulfilling and easy to make. 

- Main Topping: Granola, cheerios or oatmeal
- Yogurt
- Chocolate Chips or Nibs
- Peanut Butter
- Shredded Coconut
- Chopped Strawberries
- Half Banana

How to Make it:
The main thing for preparing this pint is to create layers, to make it easier to eat.
First, I added the Granola then Strawberries & Bananas, peanut butter and then the first layer of yogurt.

*You will repeat this process 2 or 3 times until you reach the top.

Finally, you can decore as you prefer, in this case, I added bananas, strawberries, non-sugar caramel sauce, dark chocolate nibs and sugar-free marshmallows.

That's all! Easy, healthy & on-the-go.

Thanks for reading! x. Laura

Seattle Travel Diary + Things to do this Spring

I was impressed of  in Seattle's natural beauty. Honestly I was amazed of how incredible it is to visit this city during Spring. To start, every corner is surrounded by the beauty of  the cherry blossom trees. If you are planning to visit, Washington University must be a place you check on your list. When we arrived, the place was full of people and parking was hard, even though it was totally worth it. I would describe that place as magic, to be honest pictures are nothing compared of how beautiful it is to actually being there.

Moving on to restaurants, another great thing about Seattle, on this trip we decided to try all different kind of places. Starting with The Cheesecake Factory. one of my favorite american restaurants, all the plates are always delicious and their servings sizes are insane!
For Brunch, I recommend The Biscuit Bitch, this restaurant was a random discovery, but a good one. Their plates are basically a mix between eggs, biscuits, bacon and some of them come with mapple. Was our first time there, we waited probably like 30 mins until we got our food, is basically to take and go kind of restaurant.
For Lunch, there's a great korean restaurant called Revel, we ordered different entries like chick pea pancakes, dumplings and the main dish was ramen. Soo good!

Walking around, bar hoping and going to turistic destinations like the space needle are great plans to make in here. There's no better therapy than the combination of eating, shopping and traveling at the same time.

Thanks all for reading! 
If you have any other recommendations please let me know on the comments.

5 Ways to Enjoy Spring Season

Happy spring everyone! I actually got to admit that I was waiting for this season for a long time. The reason? Simple.. sunny days, the most perfect weather and all the gorgeous blooms are finally back!

As a big enthusiast of this season, These are the 5 main ways that will make us enjoy spring to the fullest.

1. No more winter coats = More wardrobe options! Now, that winter is over all the layers are off too. I love being able of wearing skirts, dresses, shorts and also the idea of going out in sandals, light shirts, and Blazers it simply makes me so happy!

2. The flowers! Decoring our home is always better in this season, I love buying colorful tulips and peonies in every kind of pink. The environment of coming home never felt better plus strolling around the city is the most beautiful thing with all the cherry blossoms popping out.

3. More & more flower events to assist. A beautiful tradition for every year is attending to tulips and cherry blossom festivals, this plan is amazing to go with friends, family and more even for a date!

4. More strolls and plans around the city. There is no doubt that during winter we prefer staying at home and watch Netflix non-stop, but with spring the amazing weather makes us so happy to go out rather than staying and wasting a day of sun.

5. Outdoor eating is the best! Being able to go to the beach, sitting there reading a book and bringing take-out food is one the most ideal plans to do this season. Plus they also start opening all the balconies of all the restaurants around, I mean like every shade of sun we see it's very appreciated.

Wish you all a great start to the season!
