PINA COLADA SMOOTHIE RECIPE

BACK WITH A DELICIOUS PINA COLADA SMOOTHIE RECIPE!

Since so many of you guys appreciated my delicious Mojito smoothie recipe, I have decided to also share with you my new pina colada smoothie recipe!

I have always been a huge fan of pineapple. ­čśü I love adding it to fruit salads or even eating it straight out of the can. Therefore, in order to keep things interesting, I have decided to also add it to my smoothies. This is how this recipe was born, and believe me guys, I was simply mind blown by how delicious it is!

Without further ado, here is the recipe for two (big) servings:

Ingredients:

  • 500ml Alpro coconut milk
  • 2 bananas
  • Dole pineapple, half a can
  • Chia seeds, about 1tbsp
  • Oats, 1&1/2 tbsp
  • Coconut shreds, 1 tbsp

Blend and enjoy!

You can adjust the texture to your liking. Add more bananas or oats in order to make it thicker, and more coconut milk or even filtered water to make it more fluid. As far as I am concerned, I prefer a thicker, creamier version. You can have it for desert or as a snack whenever you feel the need for something sweet.

I have specified the exact brands that I have used (Alpro and Dole) because I want to make sure that you will get the exact same taste if you try the recipe. I once used a different pineapple brand in one of my recipes, and the taste was noticeably different. But feel free to adjust the ingredients however you like. ­čÖé

Benefits:

  • Bananas, pineapple, chia seeds and oats are all high in antioxidants
  • The potassium in the banana helps keep your heart and brain healthy
  • The pineapple is known to help reduce bloating
  • Chia seeds contain Omega-3 fatty acids which help prevent heart disease
  • Oats help reduce cholesterol levels and blood sugar levels

Now, guys, you must try this pina colada smoothie recipe, it is just MIND BLOWING! If you love the pineapple flavor, then you will simply adore this exotic, creamy deliciousness. And don’t forget about all the added health benefits! Make sure to try it out, and if you do, send me your pictures and tag me at @alexandra_bulac! It would make me really excited to know that you are enjoying this healthy and delicious desert!

LASH BOTOX AT MARY’S TRICKS

RO / EN:

Lash Botox

Din ├«nt├ómplare am auzit despre Lash Botox. Nu am fost niciodat─â o ├«mp─âtimit─â a procedurilor de beauty. Manichiura cu gel, extensiile de gene, p─ârul vopsit – toate acestea nu m-au atras niciodat─â, ├«n ciuda numeroaselor rezultate frumoase pe care le-am observat la alte fete de-a lungul timpului.

I have never been a huge fan of beauty procedures. Lash extensions, hair coloring, gel nails – all of these never sparked my interest, regardless of how many beautiful results I have seen at other girls throughout the years.

Cu toate acestea, am fost destul de entuziasmat─â ├«n momentul ├«n care Mariana, a.k.a Mary, m-a contactat. Ea m-a invitat la salonul ei, Mary’s Tricks, pentru procedurile de Henna Brows ╚Öi Lash Botox. Am spus, de ce nu? Este oportunitatea perfect─â pentru a vedea despre ce este vorba! Voi putea descoperi dac─â mi-ar pl─âcea cu adev─ârat sau nu.

But I have to admit that I was really excited when Mariana, a.k.a Mary from Mary’s Tricks contacted me. She invited me to her beauty salon for the Lash Botox and Henna Brows procedures. I said, why not? It is the perfect oportunity to see what it is all about! I would find out if I really like it or not.

GLITTER MAKEUP AT BEAUTY DISTRICT VICTORIA

EN / RO:

I have always wanted to write about a makeup look in my Beauty section. And I am extremely excited to finally be able to do it! Even though I promote and support natural beauty, makeup is a beautiful form of art. And it is also a lot of fun! Moreover, makeup should be used in order to enhance the natural beauty of a person, not hide it.

De mult timp ├«mi doream s─â scriu despre un look de makeup ├«n sec╚Ťiunea de Beauty. ╚śi sunt foarte fericit─â pentru c─â ├«n sf├ór╚Öit am aceast─â oportunitate! De╚Öi sus╚Ťin frumuse╚Ťea natural─â, sunt de p─ârere c─â machiajul este o form─â frumoas─â de art─â. Acesta trebuie folosit din pasiune, ╚Öi nu pentru a ascunde chipul unei persoane.

I have met Cristina Toma at GLAMOUR Street Fashion Show 2017. She is the makeup artist who did my makeup for the event. Last week, she has invited me to be her model, which was an offer I could not refuse.

WHAT OTHERS THINK OF YOU IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS

EN:

Caring about other people’s opinions is the biggest obstacle to your happiness, and the thing that will constantly draw you back and keep you from progressing in life. And why is that?

Glad you asked.

So many people these days, especially teenagers and young adults, tend to suppress their desires and even their true personalities because they fear of what other people would think about their actions. “What will my mom say?”, “What will grandpa say?”, “How will my classmates feel about me doing that?”. All of these are frequent and seemingly harmless obstacles, small thoughts which make you question your most genuine wishes and sometimes determine you to give up on some things, ideas or even precious passions of yours, because you are worried that your definition of “right” does not correspond to theirs.

THE PLAID SHIRT

From what I can remember, as soon as I purchased every item of this look during the summer, I knew that I would pair them in this exact outfit. I have ALWAYSSS wanted a red plaid shirt, because it is a timeless piece, and my mother agreed, but not in the good way. She said that it is old fashioned and that she had one herself when she was my age, but I bought it anyway, because I knew that there are endless ways in which you can wear this item.
