Here’s a track off the mixtape to listen to:
Thank you *Dila Toplusoy (dilaland.com) and *Chrissa Simone (simoneyesblog.com) for nominating me for a Liebster award, it means a lot. Their blogs are amazing, both lifestyle blogs and both soo unique and different.
The rules for the bloggers who are nominated are as follows:
Here are Dilas questions:
What makes you smile the most?
When people you do not expect displaying random acts of kindness. I was in central London once during the summer and saw a homeless man sitting on the other side of the road. As I waited for a friend, I watched men and women dressed in suits holding brief cases ignore the homeless man in a race to be the first on the train platform. After a while, a young man (or youth as the media refers) with headphones on, skinned head, large hooded black bomber jacket and baggy trousers stopped and offered the man his energy drink, a walkers crisp (chips if reading in america).
How did you come up with your blog name?
I wanted to be healthy and I love junk food, soooo…why not find ways to make that happen?
Where is your dream destination?
What is your biggest source of inspiration?
Music – without a doubt.
Which language would you want to learn if you could learn it in a day?
Spanish – my name is Xavier Rodrigues and I’m Indian. I’m tired of the same explanation I have to give.
What is your favorite dessert?
What are your 3 favorite places in London?
My home, my university (University of the Arts London) and Oxford Circus/Regent street area.
If you could meet anyone in the world, who would it be?
Jesus, I have a lot of questions.
How do you spend your free time?
I really like my bed… but the better answer is – I go to University 3 times a week, Work on music projects for two days with my amazing creative team and work on the weekends. I don’t have ‘free time’ but the time that I do have I snuggle in my bed and watch a Marvel film.
What is your motto?
Someone in the world is happier with less than what you have.
Here are Chrissas questions:
What is your daily inspiration?
A’s before Baes
How would you spend a sunny Sunday in London?
My friends and I meet up, go to Camden – eat some street food and then go all round central london. It’s become a tradition.
Coffee or Tea?
Both! I used to hate coffee but I turned into an adult with responsibilities and found that coffee is a necessity for survival.
What is your guilty pleasure?
Beethoven – helps me concentrate.
What is your favorite trend?
I like my big winter jackets.
Eating in or dining out?
Both! I have a family who cook GREAT food however I love eating out at restaurants and trying new food. I also like bonding time I get with my friends which I cherish the most. Dinner over clubbing – 100%.
Where is your favorite place in the world?
London my true love and hometown (or Goa in India, where I am originally from)
Would you prefer living in a busy city or a tropical island?
I was brought up in Goa, India which is basically a ‘beach relaxed life’ and at the age of 11 I moved to London which is completely the opposite. I now have the greatest work ethic and I definitely know how to chillax and live that beach life.
What is your biggest fear?
Being told I cannot be creative again.
What is your favorite social media platform?
Instagram (for now)
The blogs I nominate are:
My questions for you are:
*Click name to open link, to view blog.
Protein power, nutritional champion and moderate carb allowance! An easy way to make my lunch or dinner tastey and healthy!
There really isn’t a process in making this – my motto – ‘throw in whatever you want.’
Tuna (half a regular tin)
Small bag of spinach
Small portion of rice – feel free to add any sauce to your rice for flavouring!
Beans (whichever you prefer)
You could add low fat salad dressing if you want but you dont have to!!!
Eat a bowl full!
Effort level: EASY
2 cups creamed coconut (you can probably also use coconut butter)
2 cups fresh blueberries (frozen, thawed might work too)
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tsp vanilla extract
Add all ingredients in a food processor until the mix is smooth. Pour the mixture in a a deep tray or pan lined with parchment paper. Leave some parchment paper to stick out the sides. After pouring the the mixture and flattened with a spatula, place the mixture in the freezer to firm up for a few hours.
