#100daysofhappy - Day 19 I'd rather be at Coachella

Very high on my bucket list, no actually on top of my bucket list is to spend a weekend at the Coachella festival in Indo, Californië. I love music festivals, always have and always will; the music, the people, the connections that are made through music, the butterflies in your stomach just before the artists are about to hit the stage, the cheap beers, sunshine and overall relaxed vibes.

But Coachella adds another dimension, THE FASHION. Halleluja, hippie / bohemian chic never looked better. My fav essentials to complete your Coachella look are the following:

#100daysofhappy - Day 18 H&M Conscious Looks

Luckily more and more chain brands are updating their collections with a sustainable or eco friendly line. I notice myself searching more and more for sustainable labels, not only to support the environment but to support 'healthy' and honest labor as well.
Every year H&M comes with a Conscious Collection (which is set to launch April 10th), the looks for this year are stunning and budget wise pretty affordable. But did you know that in the regular line, H&M features conscious pieces as well? Here are my fav looks for upcoming summer.

#100daysofhappy - Day 17 Raw Noodles

I just finished Jason Vale's (aka the juice master) 5 day juice detox. Next to juicing I spend those five days finding inspiration for healthy and pure recipes.

I came across this Great and extremely easy to prepare 'noodle' salad on www.thechalkboardmag.com .

The noodles are made from zucchini strips and the super delicious, almost paste like sauce is made by mixing raw cashew nuts, sun dried tomatoes in oil, a carrot, chili powder and fresh basil in the food processor.
Top the salad with some healthy raw hempseeds

#100daysofhappy - Day 16 Happy Travels

O my there has been a huge gap since the last -happy day-! In my personal search for happiness I am in the midst of changing jobs; which explains the gap.
Last week I travelled to Dubai for a very short but very very sweet trip. Traveling is one of the things that makes me extremely happy (guess I am not the only one). Traveling however can be tiresome, herewith my favorite travel essentials which make my journey more pleasant.

1. Comfy sweater from Mango
2. The softest sweatpants ever from American Eagle Outfitters
3. Warm hand-knitted socks from my fav Dutch brand Kiboots
4. To keep your face refreshed and moisturized use Multi Active Toner by Dermalogica
5. Hydrate with organic coconut water, my favorite is Zico
6. Keep your hands moist and supersoft with hand cream from l'occitane
7. Sleepkit from Anatomicals via ASOS

#100daysofhappy - Day 13 Juice time!

I am still getting used to veggie juices, however I have discovered that apples sweeten everything up. This juice is sweet and spicy at the same time. Spicy depending on the amount of ginger you add.

For this colorful veggie juice you will need for one large glass:

  • 2 apples
  • 1 beetroot
  • 2 large carrots
  • 2cm of ginger root
