Quick Tip: Tomato-Pepper-Pasta~

Hello everyone!

One week before my Japan/ South Korea trip, I´m back with a little recipe!

For lunch, I tried some tomato-pepper-pasta for the first time and they were really delicious. Yummy!

Here is my little recipe:

1. First, I turned on the heat to boil some water with salt for the pasta. Additionally, I chopped a little onion and two garlic gloves. I seared the onions and the garlic one after another.

2. After that, I put the chopped pepper into the pan and let it cook for about 3 min. The water boiled, so I added the pasta.

Afterwards, I added the tomato slices and let it cook a little more.

3. Then, I added some olive oil, some water and spices like thyme, oregano and basil and let it cook until everything was one compound. The pasta was al dente, so I drained the water.

4. I added the pasta to the pan and voilà! There you have a delicious quick pasta dish which tastes delicious! Hope you enjoy it as well!
To make it look more like in a restaurant, you can garnish your plate with some basil or parsley, like it did!

Have a nice day and a great weekend!

Sale Haul!~

Hello everyone!

Today, I have a sale haul for you!

Last Thursday, I went to France with my mum to go shopping because of the big sales that are there from June to July.

I found some great stuff and saved a lot of money!

But first, I show you this great golden spike bracelet which I purchased in a China store on ebay. It was only  about 2€!

I got this simple but amazing ring in a little boutique in France where they had a lot of 70% off things, so I got this one for only 2€ (10€)

There was also a little sale in "The Body Shop", so I decided to try one of their bath and shower gels. I got the "Fuzzy Peach" one which has a nice fruity smell for 2.50€ (5€)

As you know, I love silk patternd scarves and at H&M I found one which is awesome in summer because of the light pastell colours. I got it for only 3€ (8€)

At "Pull&Bear", I bought this anthrazite coloured shirt. It has a leopard heart print and glitter on it. I got it for 10€ (16€)

I got this anthrazite coloured shirt there as well. I love the print on it because it´s perfect for my Japan trip in August! I also got it for 10€.

Today, I went to town to buy some stuff and I purchased this mango and papaya perfumed candle. The smell is gorgeous and I only paid around 1.70€ for it!

I ran out of my all time favourite compact powder and concealer, so I went to my drugstore to repurchase them.

Manhattan Soft Compace Powder "0 Transparent"

Have a nice day!

Minty Fingertips Nail Tutorial~

Hello everyone!

Yesterday I decided to paint my nails in a different kind of way!

1.   With some tape, I masked a little space on my nail points.

2.   Then, I chose my favourite mint nailpolish and filled out the masked space on my nails.

3.   I let it dry for several minutes and detached the tape.

4.   At the end, I put on a clear topcoat to seal the nail design.

Nail tutorial completed!

Mint Nailpolish: Rival de Loop "37 Mint Melody"

Clear Topcoat: essence gel-look topcoat

Hope you´d liked it!
Have a nice day!
