I can’t imagine Holiday season without hot drinks, my favorite thing to do is to make a good cup of hot drink. It makes your day or evening so cozy. Imagine having a good cup in your hands while being outside in the cold winter weather or sitting underneath a warm blanket and enjoying Christmas movies, ahh, amazing! Hot drinks are my MUST HAVE essential during the Holiday season.
I love to find new delicious recipes every year. Drinks don’t have to be hard to make because you don’t want to spend most of your evening making a drink.
I want to share my three favorite perfectly delicious drinks that I’ve been making all month.

This classic cacao drink is super quick and easy to make as it has only two ingredients in it. I am sure the cocoa drink is well known drink and almost everyone has tried it. It is not too sweet as you don’t use any sweet ingredients.

You’ll need few cups of milk (depends on how many you want to make, f.e. if you want to make one, you’ll need one cup of milk) and 2-3 tbs. unsweetened cocoa powder. Pour milk into the medium sized bowl and heat on slow to medium heat, don’t forget to stir so your milk doesn’t burn. When your milk is warm enough, add cocoa powder and stir until your drink is smooth. Serve immediately while hot and add toppings if you want. Since it’s very easy to make the drink, add different kind of toppings – whipped cream, chocolate shavings, marshmallows, sprinkles, small cookies or sweets, etc.

Nutella drink is very creamy and tasty as it has chocolate spread in it. I enjoy this drink so much that I always make it for more servings than one.

You’ll need 4 cups of milk (again, depends on how many you want to make), 1-2 tbs. Nutella spread, 2 tbs. unsweetened cocoa powder and 2 tbs. sugar ( if you want it sweet. I personally didn’t add sugar). Pour milk into the medium sized bowl and heat though, add nutella, cocoa and sugar. Stir until no lumps remain. Serve with desired toppings. I added whipped cream and chocolate sauce on top.

This drink contains more ingredients and takes a little bit of time but not too long. I would say that this is also the sweetest drink.  

For two servings, you’ll need ½ can condensed milk, ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder, 2 cups milk, 1 tsp. vanilla extract (optional) and pinch of salt. Place condensed milk, vanilla extract, cocoa powder and pinch of salt into medium sauce pan. Stir until cocoa is mixed well with condensed milk and no lumps remain. Little by little add milk. Place mixture on the stove and heat though, stirring continiously. Do not boil. Add desired toppings. In my opinion, mini marshmallows are the best topping.

I hope you enjoyed this post. Make yourself a good cup of delicious drink and have a wonderful Holidays!

I would like to start this post with wishing you all Happy Holidays and I hope you spend your time with your loved ones!

In this post I share my favorite small things that got me into the Holiday season.

This year we decorated our tree pretty early. Decorating Christmas tree + listening to Christmas music = the best way how to start the Holiday season. This year we went for silver & purple decorations and our white tree looked like this way better than the last year (when we had green, red & gold decorations).
I love hot drinks and hot cups in hands make everything so cozy especially if you relax with a good Christmas movie in front of you. Most of the drinks I made were chocolate-like and I will post my favorite recipes for easy & delicious drinks very soon. Although, I also made hot cider from Somersby Apple cider drink, added cinnamon sticks and it turned out so, so good.

Sweet desserts are as important as hot drinks during the Holiday season. Cupcakes, cinnamon buns with (perfect !!) frosting, lots and lots of whipped cream on top of the drinks, etc., I just can't resist because I love to make desserts but Christmas calories don't count, right? Haha, I wish!

And what about fashion essentials? Beautiful and sparkly necklaces are my favorites for this season. Your accessories and you HAVE to shine brighter than any Christmas tree because you need to be that extra!!!

I am so happy that I tried lots of different Holiday makeup looks these past weeks and I even used loose glitters and shimmery things (stuff which I usually prefer to ignore because I just can't deal with glitters falling everywhere). I was surprised how my thoughts about glitters changed recently, every look that contained glitter became my favorite. I am not a big fan of glitter nail polishes either since these are hard to take off but as I got to test out new drugstore peel off base I enjoyed the results and I will definitely try glittery nails for Christmas or New Years eve.
Now I am sure - that you HAVE TO HAVE glitters for special occasions.

My favorite thing about gifts is to wrap them by myself. I wish I could wrap tons of gifts because I enjoy it and love to find creative ways how to do it. Also, I didn't know if I wanted to make Christmas cards but since I got into bullet journaling and hand-lettering + I was inspired by AmandaRachLee I wanted to try to make them for the first time and I am so happy with the results. I hope my family will like these too.

I hope you enjoyed this post about my favorite things to do/have to get into the Holiday mood and I hope you enjoy this incredible season.

Happy Sunday! For me Sundays always start slowly and very peacefully. Sunday is the only day of the week I try not to plan but just relax and enjoy it. For that reason Sunday morning is the perfect time for thoughtful and yummy breakfast. I want to share with you one of my favorite pancakes recipes that is healthy and very delicious.

For these pancakes you'll need 300g oats, 2-4 eggs, 3 tbs. greek yogurt, 100g milk or water and 1tbs. honey. You can also add cinnamon or seeds it's very optional. 
Preheat the pan. Place the oats into the food processor. Pulse  until the oats reach fine, powdery consistency. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Cook on medium heat (I like to make them small so it's easier to flip them). Serve pancakes with desired toppings.

Other two options how I like to serve these pancakes:

I hope you find this recipe helpful! I really suggest you to try these pancakes. You'll love them!
