Camping Trip

Monday, 30 June 2014

A couple weeks ago I went away for the weekend with a couple of people including my dad and a friend.

We headed to the woods and camped out in a trailer (RV). We roasted marshmallows, had a barbecue and did all that goodness that comes with camping. It was great fun and I had a splendid time apart from the fact that there was little to no wifi :( but I lived nonetheless. There was also a lake a walk away from the camp ground. Which was a bit cold to go in at the time, but we walked around and took some photos. I really miss all the smells from waking up to the fresh fire wood to the night time campfires. Will have to return there very, very soon. 

Below are a few pictures I photographed on the trip.
Taken on an iPhone and edited with VSCO.







This was taken when I got back from the trip... I  just love how this photo turned out! 


                                                                                   

Overnight Oats

Wednesday, 11 June 2014


Recently I have been loving overnight oats for breakfast. Have you ever heard about them before? Have you ever tried them before? If not you should give it a little taste. Overnight oats are rolled oats soaked in liquid which are stored overnight in the fridge and to be served cold in the morning. They are the perfect way to have oatmeal in the summer or just anytime of the year really. Super healthy for you and super delicious. Also really easy to make as well. 

Ingredients: 
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup milk ( add a little bit less if you want it to be thicker) 
Pinch cinnamon (optional) 

Topping:
1/2 banana
A few strawberries 
dried cranberries 
chopped walnuts 

Directions:

 Add the oats and the milk in to a bowl along with the cinnamon if you want. Stir and leave it in the fridge for at least 5 hours or overnight. While its in the fridge the oats are absorbing the milk. 

Take the oatmeal out of the fridge and add your toppings. Those are just what I added on mine. Feel free to add what ever you wish and Enjoy!


Overnight oats are packed with nutrients and high in fibre giving you a great start to your day. Berries and banana add the perfect amount of sweetness to the oats and the walnuts or any other type of nut gives it that finish touch.
