PIE SQUARED

As I have shown you on instagram before, my husband thoroughly enjoys baking apple pie every Sunday. It has become a sort of tradition in the last couple of months, since the weather started getting colder. But sadly, we haven’t found yet an actual round pan to do a real π(Pi) pie. So for now, we can only do pie squared. Get it? LOL. I married an engineer what can I say! (Plus, my dad is a mathematician, so I wanted to make him proud!)

It’s delicious, sweet & the perfect dessert for an afternoon of lazy Sundays.

Some of you have asked me for the recipe before, so I here it is once and for all!

This one is for you! <3

I have something to confess, my mind has been rambling around lately about what I want this blog to become.

At the beginning, I was just writing when I felt like it and the schedule and topics were all very scattered, I bet that must’ve been very confusing for the few people that were actually coming back.

Then I started my masters and I had to force myself to organize this blog and my time better. I did noticed a BIG difference on the quality of the content that I was writing and therefore, the audience of this blog.

I feel like I’m no longer just talking to myself, we’re actually having a conversation <3

Thank you for always sharing your thoughts through the comments with me. I appreciated it a thousand! You’re helping me develop and refine my writing voice so much, and I will be forever grateful.

Now, I want some more feedback from you.

I’m always talking about myself but I want to know more about you!

I have come up with this list of future topics that I’ll be focusing on in the near future but I want to know if  they are actually relevant for you:

- Motivation & inspiration

- Love & relationships

- Recipes

- Travelling, adventures & bucket lists

- Waderlust: Slovenia & Mexico

- Expat life/advice

- Career/college advice

- Monthly link love

I also want to start publishing Monday and Thursdays. 

Also, should I start writing in Spanish again. What do you think?

What would you add, remove, like to know more of, and/or adjust? 

Seriously, this space is for you. Leave you comments below!

The Anti-Advice Column: The Life of Your Dreams

Or

Do you think everything you ever dream of  will just fall from the sky and drop in your hands just like that?

good-things..

I have to be honest with you, life lately hasn’t been as easy-breezy as I make it look on this blog. I still have my days where I get lost in translation, where I crave the company of my friends back in Mexico, where I wish I could have my family by my side just to vent about the random tedious things that I don’t fully understand yet. But I still keep pushing forward.

Because I really love the life I am living. All of it. Even with these small setbacks.

I mean, just take a look at the place where I live.

Liebster Award #2!

First of all, I would love to thank Thays from Silly Crazy Love for nominating me for this Liebster Award! It’s the second one now, yey!

I LOVE answering random facts and more questions about myself ;)

So let’s get to it…

11 facts about myself

1// I can make the best chinese noodles ever, even with a short supply of chinese ingredients. Trust me.

2// If I ever got lucky, it was when my younger brother was born. He really is the best brother in the world.

3// If you’re friends with me, you know that I still can’t get over my exchange experience in Lille, France (that happened in 2011).

4// Being a Rotaract member was the best thing that ever happened in my life (not only because I married one) but because you get the chance to make some of the best friendships while doing activities that benefit society at the same time. It’s very rewarding.

5// I have 2 dogs back in Mexico, her names are Vodka and Kahlua (yes, I named them)

6// I’m a Harry Potter fan, obviously! Continue reading

#slomextraditions Halloween + Day of the Dead

Today’s post will be a little bit short and sweet because something sort of came up.

Apparently, I might’ve lost some (a lot) of pictures due to of my lack skills regarding the cloud and external hard drives. Please know that my husband is a software engineer and is fixing this whole problem as we speak. He’s also the official designated chief-of-all-things-related-to-my-computer officer now. So, moving on.

We’re not spending Christmas this year in Mexico as we had originally planned. I have an exam the 23rd of December and that has killed our whole Mexico’s sunny beaches are waiting for us this winter vibe. So to make it sort of okay-ish, we have been thinking of some fun personal traditions to start to diminish a little the winter blues.

Unexpectedly, we started this weekend by celebrating 2 holidays that are equally as important in Mexico as in Slovenia: Halloween and The Day of the Dead. Halloween is celebrated the 31st (obviously I know you knew that) but, the 1st of November, Slovenians celebrate dan mrtvih (day of the dead) while in Mexico we celebrate it the 2nd of November.

So for Halloween, we started with some pumpkin carving.
