Ovenbaked Veggies! <3

I am obsessed with ovenbaked vegetables lately! They’re so good, filling and low kcal 🙂 

And super versatile! 

They can be eaten:

-on their own

-with coucous/quinoa

-with potatoes (or fries/sweetpotato fries)

-with beans

These are the ones I’m having today.


Bell pepper, zucchini,tomato, red onion and avocado. I also often have eggplants. The spice I’ve used is garlic powder. 

After I took this picture I drisselef some mushroom slices over. You can also add sweetcorn 🙂 

What is your preffered method of preparing vegetables?

What should I read next? 

So I thought that for my next “Zoë’s Book Club” I could do a recommended book from one of you guys. I know I personally love getting people to read my favorite books (and tweets tbh), and I know I’m not the only one! So what is a book that you would recommend that the whole world read? It can really be anyting.

A classic


A horror book


Some romance


Even a ridiculess YA novel (my guilty pleasure) 


So let me know! And we can share out thoughts and feelings on your favorite piece of literature! 🙂

Zoë`s Book Club #1 -Thanks for the Memories

Instead of going with a book I`ve never read before by an author I don`t know much of, i decided to go with a book by my favorite author, Cecelia Ahern, that has stuck with me ever since I read it as a young teenager. “Thanks for the memories”. Basically, I`ve been super busy lately, but also I genuinely want to share this amazing book with you!

Summary:

A woman (Joyce) has a miscarriage when she falls  down the stairs. Her life is saved by a blood transfusion. When she wakes up she suddenly has knowledge she never had before. Like architectural history and how to speak Italian.  While in the midst of her divorce and sorrow she keeps running in to a (handsome) american (Justin). They seem to be drawn to each other and are in actuality tied by a magical connection.

Favorite Character:

My favorite character in this book is Joyce`s father. This is because he loves her so much and keeps supporting her in everything she does even though he is sort of confused and scared. The relationship between him and his daughter is also adorable. The “father-with-dementia” concept is in no way a new one, but it`s usually just downright sad. Here I felt he was much more layered and not just an object of pity, but rather a support and with a good sense of humor.

Favorite Quote:

“I’m never overwhelmed or under it either; just nicely whelmed. I’m OK. Nothing spectacular but sometimes special. I look in the mirror and see this medium average person. A little tired, a little sad, but not falling apart.”

Favorite Part:

When the hairdresser says she can`t possibly cut off all that long gorgeous hair, and Joyce is like “sure you can, just like this” and takes the scissor and cut`s it off herself.

Three life lessons:

  1. Memories aren’t just moments, they`re parts of us. And that no matter what happens, we can find the strength to move on and make new ones.
  2. If you aren`t happy with something, then change it. it`s never to late to make life changes and do what`s best for you.
  3. As always is Cecelia Aherns books, that there is some magic in the world. Not fairies and unicorns, or anything like that. But deja vu`s and insane amounts of everyday beauty, and maybe even soulmates.

Rating:

A solid 4/5 stars.

It`s so beautiful and the charcters are great, but it is slightly to fairytale-ish.

 

Would I recommend it?

Yes!

My dream panel of bloggers

I was recently inspired by a company called Eventbrite, which is a ticket selling platform for event planners. I wanted to share what my dream panel would be if I were ever to hold a blogger conference.

Who would be on my panel?

It`s hard to choose as there are obviously so many amazing bloggers out there. Obviously I had to narrow it down and I figured that four is a good number. You get in some variation, but it`s not chaos. You know? So these are my choices.

Sophie Elise- http://sophieelise.blogg.no/

se.JPG

This is the biggest blogger in Norway. At just age 22 she is a known household name all over the country and she makes a really good living of her blog and is frequently seen in nation vide commercials as well as on our reality show “the bloggers” (bloggerne). The reason I would love to have her at my panel is that I would love to ask her more about her political views, as she supports a different party than me, yet has many views I agree on. She is also known for having had a lot of plastic surgery and I would really want to ask her about what made her do it and if it`s made her any happier. Also if she has any advice for others who are considering getting something done and what questions she thinks you should ask yourself before going through with it.

Aleali (Uh-lay-lee) May– http://www.alealimay.com/

This image consultant and model is not just incredibly gorgeous and stylish, she is also a young successful entrepreneur and local LA celebrity. Since her blog is purely style based with pictures and descriptions, I have so many topics and questions that need answers from her. Like, what is it like going to Columbia business school?  Was styling Kedrick Lamar or Wiz Khalifa the most fun? What is racial identity like when you`re half african-american and half Filipino? But what I would most like to get out of having her on the panel, is spreading the idea that it`s not only possible to have a style that`s both high-end and street, it`s can also be 100 % amazing. Talk about best of both world.

Jasmine-  https://chanelinanutshell.wordpress.com/

When I first got asked to do this post, the first person I was sure I was going to include in my panel, was Jasmine. I have read her blog ever since I joined WP, and I am continually impressed by her. At only fourteen she is such a good writer and deep thinker, and her blog is basically what I tried to do when I was her age and failed at. And her style is A+! I would love to have her at my panel because “the young perspective” in so many situations means under 35, but really there is a whole group of people who are not being heard and are seeing the world in a totally different way that we should listen more to. Young teenagers have the curiosity and innocence of children, but also some life experience, knowledge and  vocabulary that makes them able to present their views.

 Krystal- http://thistimetomorrow.com

There are two things in life I`ll never get enough of (okay there are many, but here`s two of them), clothes and travels. Krystals blog is full of inspiration regarding both of these subjects. This is the go to blog for outfit ideas, travelling reviews and boosting about the 90s generation. Obviously all of these topics would be discussed, but even more important. East Coast vs West Coast! When will this ever not be a relevant and heated topic? Well, never, that`s when. Krystal has a lot of experience from both. Tell us all the inside secrets, Krystal! Also, she worked for google for five years! I`m sorry for rambling guys, but I can`t help that she`s both stylish and impossibly interesting. After watching “the interns”, we all want to no if working at google really is like that. Anyone who denies is is definitely lying.

What would I ask them?

I`ve already talked about some things that I want to know about them individually, but obviously the whole point of a panel is to get different views on the same topic. And to get to know interesting people and public figures of course. So here are some of the main questions I`d ask them.

  • If you could only wear one designer for the rest of your life, who and why?
  • Do you believe that you can change the world through blogging? How?
  • What do you love most about your city?
  • Do you believe in pink?
  • What makes you unique as a blogger?
  • Where should our main focus be in the womens rights issue?
  • Subscribe and comment? haha

Where would it take place?

Probably at some really cool mall in London where all the under aged fashionistas would come in rain soaked and fan girl.

 

So there you go. That is my fantasy blog panel. Check out Eventbrite and the services they offer – it’s pretty cool!

You can go here to see what events they have going on in your area and here to set up your own! 🙂

And if you want to see my dream panel come to life or see me at someone else`s, then you can click  here, here or here to make me famous. Hahaha.

The most beautiful woman in the world

I think it’s so interesting how much our aesthetic perceptions differ. I know that beauty is largely  explained by science and has to do with symmetry and culture and all that. Yet there have been plenty of times where I’ve been like “omg, look at that girl, isn’t she gorgeous?” or “damn, look at that guy!” and whomever I have said it to have looked at me like I’m crazy. And it happens the other way around a lot to.

Personally I tend to find pale girls with dark hair and large eyes so beautiful! (Lily Collins, Rose McGowan types.). And dark skinned girls with freckles as well. 

For the most beautiful woman in the world I’d say Winona Ryder (especially in the late nineties, allthough she is a timeless beauty!). 

So who do you think is the most beautiful woman or women in the world? And do you have a specific look you love? 

PS: I call this one the Snow White, don’t judge.
