Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowl

Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie bowls are the perfect breakfast, dessert or snack. They taste delicious and make you feel amazing. Smoothie bowls are very trendy and we can see why.
Here is my recipe for a dragon fruit smoothie bowl:


Ingredients:

- Dragon Fruit (Red & White)
- Mango
- Kiwi
- 1 Banana
- Flax Seeds
- Granola Bites
- Almond Milk (Coconut flavour)

How to make it:

1. In your blender, add in all your chopped fruits and blend. 

2. Add in the almond milk and blend again until very smooth.

3. Pour your smoothie into a bowl and top with fruits, seeds and granola.

4. I started with the flax seeds and the granola. For my bowl, I used about 4 small granola bites, 2 of which I cut into little pieces. I continued with the kiwi, mango pieces, dragon fruit and sprinkled some more flax seed over them. 

For this recipe, I used fresh fruit because I prefer the smoother texture but you may also use frozen fruits if you want it thicker. 

And that is all! Dig in and don't forget to take photos!





Enjoy!

DIY Distressed & Bleached T-Shirt

Two years later and I am back with another DIY for you...

DIY Distressed & Bleached T-Shirt





What you'll need:

- T-Shirt (I got mine at a Japanese recycle shop for $1.25)
- fabric scissors
- razor (optional)
- spray bottle
- bleach

This is the t-shirt I chose:




How to do it:

1. For this DIY, make sure to do it on an even surface away from anything you are afraid might get stained by the bleach. So stay away from any antiques!

2. I started off by cutting a small V shape into the t-shirt. There was already a small V beneath the neckline on my t-shirt so all I had to do was cut it out.




3. Once I did this, I proceeded to put little and big holes in the t-shirt to give it that distressed look. I used the scissors to make the holes and made sure to stretch out the bigger holes with my fingers to make it look ripped rather than cut.




4. I continued distressing the t-shirt with the scissors to create rips. You may also use the razor for this part.



















5. Once I was happy with the distressed look, I put the bleach in a small spray bottle and sprayed the bleach on the different parts of the t-shirt. I also chose to spill some bleach onto the shirt making bigger stains. The bleach stains should appear immediately.




6. I soaked the t-shirt in cold water to stop the bleach from bleeding through too much and then I let it dry overnight.




And you should have a lovely distressed t-shirt ready to show-off the next day!
