Financiers & red fruits skewers

Yoop! Here I am today with a brand new and very yummy recipe! I hope everybody had a happy national day in France and that everyone had a lovely weekend!!!! I was thinking the other day (yes! it happens sometimes :p!!!) and I realised it’s been ages since I last wrote a cookery post on the blog (the 14th of July cupcakes excluded of course!!!), so I thought it was more than ever time to do so! I mean… Summer is here and most of us like cooking and making delicious little things for these very hot summery days so…

Today’s recipe is extracted from the last MY LITTLE WORLD magazine and is entitled Financiers & red fruits skewers! This title and the photo below are greatly enough to make my mouth water :p!!!

Beauty Tips by MY LITTLE WORLD * HOLIDAY

2 little beauty tips today! Look how lucky you are ;p!!!!

First and foremost, let me introduce you to a kind of magic potion… a very freshening rose-and-lemon-based body water! The roses will help hydrate and tone your skin up, while the lemon will purify it!

DSC_0578

Ingredients

  • 1 lemon (and one squeezer)
  • Roses petals (of 3 roses)
  • 1 little spray

Directions

  1. Boil some water and put the previously-washed roses petals in it. Cover the whole thing and let it brew for about 10 minutes.
  2.  Meanwhile, squeeze the lemon.
  3. Dry the roses petals. When the mixture is cooled down, add two teaspoons of lemon juice.
  4. Put it in a spray and it’s ready to be used ;)!!!! 

 

The second beauty tips of this month MY LITTLE WORLD is another very useful potion that is a repairing potion for sunburns! I personally think THIS is the must-make and must-have of the summer! So here’s the recipe, my beauts!!!

DSC_0579

Ingredients

  • Green tea
  • 1 fresh tomato 
  • Cottons 

Directions

  1. Let the green tea brew for about 20 minutes so that the water contains enough healing molecules (polyphenol). 
  2. Peel a tomato and blend it. The tomato contains the necessary vitamins to easily regenerate the skin.
  3. When the two mixtures are cold enough, soak the cottons and leave them on your sunburns for about 30 minutes. (You can start this process over and over again! Pretty cool, uh?!)

 

Here they are, my lovelies! The 2 great beauty tips of this month MY LITTLE WORLD magazine!

With this, you’re ready to serenely face the summer 😉

Keep holding on to what you love & enjoy the ride of life 😉

* My Little HOLIDAY Box *

“LIFE IS BETTER AT THE BEACH”

DSCF3171

Woop! Woop! My little box of July arrived at home a few days ago and I have already begun to use its fantastic products! They are all so great and useful… and I must admit that I got a big crush on the beach bag of this box ;p!!!! (I am definitely a bag addict so it was really LIKE A HUGE CRUSH!!!)

Once again, a super summery box, perfect for your holiday!!!! I bet you can’t wait to see what it contains?! So… enough babbling for now, let’s speak a bit more seriously… let’s see what the little box of this month reserved its very faithful and devoted subscribers ;)!

DSCF3174

The first item of this box, and also my BIG crush of the month (drumroll please!)… the beautiful beach bag, designed by the always very talented Kanako!!! I don’t know about you, but I think I’ve just fallen in love with a bag (although it might not be the first time :p ^^ #hihi !!!)

DSCF3172 DSCF3173

Secondly and like every month, I got a lovely illustration by Kanako with the caricatured summer menus (though I don’t think it is that much of a caricature ;p!!!), accompanied by the unmissable new MY LITTLE WORLD magazine 🙂 !!!DSCF3175

July was definitely the month of the extra everything… extra work, extra sun, extra beach bag :p and extra gift!!!!! This month, MY LITTLE BOX offered its subscribers a little ®Sephora  polisher that will give us no excuse not to have gorgeous nails this summer!!! The rumour has it that MY LITTLE BOX thinks of everything, but in my humble opinion, it may actually be quite true!!!

And last but not least, let’s discover the beauty products of this box! An hydrating shampoo, a very soft ®RogerCavailles shower gel and a fresh & invigorating lotion that is more than useful to people (a bit like me) who are constantly on the run and end up completely exhausted with whales under the eyes (I’m not sure the expression is the same in English, but I’m sure you’ll know what I mean ;)!!!).DSCF3179

I hope you liked the post and all the little cosmetics and diverse items of this box ;)

With this my beauties,

Keep holding on to what you love & enjoy the ride of life ;)

Lots of summery kisses ❤ ❤ ❤
