BREAKING NEWS

TECH CHAT || Youtube Converter

I wanted to talk about a web application named Youtube Converter which makes my life a lot easier when it comes to quickly downloading from Youtube. I often hear a song somewhere I'm at or simply while working on the radio.

Whenever I hear a song, I always want to add those songs to my phone so I secretly sing my tunes in the subway ;)

A part from Nirvana I never felt the need to purchase entire albums from artists I love because I sometimes only like 1-2 songs.

I'm always like " OMG this song.... This song...." I then grab my phone and use Soundhound or Shazam to look for the song I hear at that moment, and then switch over to Youtube Converter to download the video and convert it to a mp3 file.





I want to introduce you to this application, which allows you to convert Youtube videos to mp3 in seconds. I really like this application because there are also many mixes from DJ's from who you will not find full cd's or singles in stores.

This is the easiest way for me quickly get a song. I like to use this application.

I want to show you how it works:

Hear some awesome music.

Look for the song on youtube and select the song.

Select and copy the link.

Paste the link you copied on the youtube converter site.

Click convert and you can choose to either save the song directly to your phone (when connected to the pc) or on your pc and even on your Iphone!

You, also can install the software Youtube Converter on your pc or tablet (win) and (mac).

Also good to know is that you can not only convert to just mp3 but also easily convert to other video formats!

Like I said this woks best for me because I never really buy cd's and it is a quick solution for when I hear the latest songs and need to sing a long quickly!

What kind a gal are you?

Do you like to buy entire cd's or are you a converter like me haha?!

Beauty's


I got these wonderful products by Rebro Cosmetics.

I really wanted to try out these perfumes from So Fragrance.



I personally don't always to go for the latest Gucci and Chloe, and like to try put other perfume brands.

These 2 fragrances by So Fragrance so happen to be my current favorites!

For the past few weeks I've been spraying the .... on for work.

The So...Kiss me! bottle smells lightly fruity due to the Pineapples, Citron and Vanilla, while So... in love bottle the smells even more fruity, this super yummy smelling perfume contains fruits like Jasmin, Pear and Raspberry I use this perfume mainly  for a night out.



 




This Pomegranate Replenishing lip balm can't come from a better brand than Burt's bee's

I have a few other lip balms from this brand, and so far they all work amazing for me!



Formula 10.1.06 - So Totally Clean Face Cleanser

This face cleanser from Formula 10.1.06 absolutely perfect after a long day. It cleans my face and leaves me with a soft skin.

Instead of it smelling like chemical stuff it actually smells really nice too.



Innecto- Argan cream for Hands & Nails:

 I love to smell this cream haha it smells super nice.
It's no secret that Argan oils does wonders to our body wheter it used for your hair, or in this case hands and nails.

I have such dry hands and skin in general so it's nice to pamper my skin with this amazing Argan cream from Innecto.
This great product is for sale in the common dutch drug stores such as Kruidvat, Etos etc, and should be for sale internalionally as well!

This morning there was a little bit of sun coming up after the windy weather of the last few days here in the Netherlands.
I thought good time to make a quick picture. I pulled on my blazer and blue jeggins from H&M.

My new ankle boots from Graceland which I've been trying to break out a little bit because it still doesn't feel like my other shoes. The past days I've been carrying my Guardian Angel tote bag from Vlieger & van Dam with me everywhere I go, and had to show off my new St Andrews Lady watch. This watch is also from the amazing Daniel Wellington collection and was again to easy to slip on to work!

Food || Favorite Healthy Snacks on the GO!

Beauty's!









































These are the main products I take with me to work because they are easy to prepare and give you a satisfied feeling.

So no more Fries and Pizza but healthy replacements that taste just as good!

These items are from all over the world, because there are so many great tasting things in the world I don’t see why I should stick to local products only.




Fresh-As Dried Fruits and Vegetables:

This amazing company makes the best air freeze fruits and vegetables. They can’t get any healthier than this.
I already showed you their amazing products in my recipe post here.
I love to take a hand full off blue berries and raspberry’s to work to either eat like that or put in my yoghurt yum yum!

Check Fresh-As HERE

Kellogg’s Mini Breaks:

These amazing mini snacks from Kellogg’s are high on my list because they are so additively good tasting.
I try not to eat more than 2 packs a day but I can’t help myself sometimes. The snacks are nice in the morning to give you a little more energy.


Philadelphia Spread:

I love  this spread on normal crackers, rice crackers and bread. I use this as a replacement for butter and it gives your toasts or crackers a nice fresh taste.
I also use this with my Tortilla wraps.

Smoked Salmon:

I  love to eat Salmon not only in my pasta’s and Salad’s but also on my Tortilla wrap. Mixing the Philadelphia and Salmon together with a wrap gives you a  great sandwich.
I also use  Salmon in my cold pasta salads for work which is such a filling ingredient.


Liga Fruit Crisp:

Here in the Netherlands we have another similar snack called Sultana. I don’t like them because they have raisins in it which I don’t like, So when Liga came out with this sultana version without raisins I was super happy. I crave for these sweet apple cinnamon snacks in the morning just a couple of hours before lunch time.


Tortilla Wraps:

These wraps are my replacements for bread and other pastry things I used to buy in the morning at the bakery. I love to use some spread, lettuce and fish or meat to create tasty wraps for work.

YumYum Noodle Soup:

I was sort of brought of with this brand when it comes to Noodle soups. There’s nothing better than a nice hot cup of soup when you’re really hungry. Now that they come in these cups they are easy to take with you anywhere you go.



Boeren Muesli ( Granola):

I love this Dutch thick yogurt in the morning with some granola. I also like to take Greek yoghurt and mix it with some dried fruits from Fresh-As to give it a nice taste.



Kumpir:

I love potatoes and this tasty treat is something you can always wake me up for. This delicious snack comes from Turkey but we get more and more shops selling this cooked potato with melted cheese and different kinds of vegetables on it.




Well these are my favorite snacks to go!





I’m always looking for new snacks to order and try out so what snacks do you love?





Let me know!





New Direction: Healthy Eating.

Beauty's!


The last few months I've been seeking for replacement snacks for my fast food cravings.

I have been trying out snacks from all over the world and want to share my new healthy favorites for when I go to work or just sitting on the cough watching my series!

Let me begin by letting you know that I'm always hungry.

I always have just enough space for that third piece of that birthday cake or a midnight pizza, and it gets worse because before I started with the healthy snacks I always had fries and chicken nuggets at work, every day again, and again up till the point that I get a discount on everything I order which I think is pretty bad..

So one day I just thought it was time to slowly make a change and start looking for products that were healthy and would also give me the feeling that it would be something I could eat every day.

In one of my previous posts I mentioned getting a Bento Box which is a Japanese lunch box with multiple layers for your mini meals to go.

I got this Bento from CasaBento that has so many different boxes and assessors that it took me a few days to select the perfect one.

This was my start in getting creative in preparing healthy mini meals and snacks that I could build on through my working day.



For my first tip I want to show you these useful Bento boxes and their purpose.



Salade box:

This handy-dandy salade box is perfect to bring your favorite salads to work.

If you love salads then why not make your own and take it with you to enjoy.

Bento Box:

this 2 layered Bento box is perfect when you want to get creative and prepare mini meals and snacks that will last you through the day.

Bento for kids:

This cute little lunch box is what you need to store your octopus shapes weenies and carrot snacks for the little ones.

Cutlery set:

Whether you have a salad,soup or any basic meal this cutlery set is your own personal set to take with you.

Sauce cups:

There's nothing better to finish your yummy lunch by poring your favorite dressing over your food.

These come in sets of 5 and 20 and are small and easy to fill and store.

Marlies Monday || Event overview - Metro Mode!

Hi Beauty’s!


Today’s it’s Marlies Monday because I wanted to share an amazing event I attended last Thursday in Hotel Manhattan in Rotterdam.

Last Thursday I was invited to celebrate and hand out the first copy of Friday’s Metro Mode.

For all my international ladies, Metro Mode is a free subway newspaper which has a great section related to fashion.

Marlies Dekkers is a lingerie designer from Rotterdam already famous for her sexy lingerie worn by Lady Gaga, Britney Spears and more!


 
I love her sexy and super feminine designs :)

In this issue you can find things that inspire her and much more!

Before the edition was handed over she answered a few questions and was actually a very open and funny person!




After her speech we had time to snap some pictures with her and party on!







After a few hour we went home happy and satisfied with a goodie bag!



What’s in my goodie bag?!

 Gosh what were we spoiled by Marlies!

This Goodie bag was extra special because it exists out of her personal favorite items and products.

 Her favorite eye lashes  are from Make-up Studio. I've tried these before and couldn't be happier to give my lashes a boost this Friday :P

 Hooray nail polish! I how cute are these polishes by Marlies Dekkers, this one is called Cool Scandinavia

 PAM PAM PAM this special gift is from the Manhattan Hotel and had 2 amazingly delicious macrons!

The brown sac contains a leave necklace which is super cute :)



Hope you enjoyed reading my review of the event and got you curious in checking out one of the many collection of Marlies Dekkers!



Jen's Berry Bash Pudding by OK Import!


Beauty's!


Hope you are well!










I don’t know about you but I simply love desserts!

I’m not really a candy-person but I do love to treat myself and friends with fresh baked apple pies and puddings.



Instead of grabbing a pack of chips or sweets I make my way to the kitchen to start warming up some milk for puddings or prepare the dough for my pie.



I got these super cute mold of Wonder Cakes from OK-Import and want to share my recipe for a delicious Custard pudding with berries.



OK-import is the place to be here in the Netherlands when looking for high quality cooking and baking products.

Wonder Cakes is one of their amazing brands which offers a great variety of baking products.

Even though Valentine is a few months away I thought it would be a nice to use these lovely molds and make some puddings for my lover :)



The berries I used are from an amazing company named Fresh-As!

I will save my introduction about Fresh-As! For my upcoming video, but I do already want to tell you that if you are looking for

Dried fruits and vegetables, you don’t have to look any further.

  Recipe for Jen’s Berry Bash Custard Pudding:

 

How to make the Custard




Original:

Custard can easily be made with egg yolks, sugar, milk and/or cream and Vanilla.

The key thing when making custard is to heat it just enough to thicken, but not too much so that it curdles.

A neat trick is to add a little flour which will help stabilize the eggs.



But if you want to run this show quickly I suggest you also use an instant custard pudding which tastes just as good!





Instant:



When you want to use the instant pudding it’s important to add the Custard in cold milk to prevent it getting lumpy.

Slow turn up the heat and keep stirring this until it gets thicker.



When your pudding is ready pour it in your molds and leave it in the fridge to cool for about 30 min.



After 30 min you can take them out of the fridge and start by placing your heart- shaped puddings on the plates.



We’re not done yet!



I’ve added a sprinkle of Raspberry powder and finished my pudding by adding some delicious dried Blue Berries.

The Raspberry powder makes it look extra festive and they blue berries taste great in combination with the sweet pudding.



I hope you will give this a go!



If you are looking for the same molds I’ve used for this post check out the site of OK-Import HERE
