Can you believe it, its the first of December tomorrow!! I'm super excited for December, so many exciting things happening and one of them would have to be Christmas! So today I thought I would share with you guys Kikki.k's Lovers Advent Calendar 2017 (My first ever advent calendar). This advent calendar is especially made for people who love all things stationary! BUT if your wondering what the heck is Kikki.k well then let me explain. 

Kikki.k is a Swedish stationary brand thats does a range of planners, pens, notebooks, homewares and even more stuff! The advent calendar features a selection from their favourite and limited edition stationery and lifestyle pieces - from clips to notebooks, a candle to refillable pens and decorative pieces for this holiday season. 

I've open the advent calendars windows/doors from December 11 - 17th, just so you guys can get an idea of what's in the Kikki.k Advent Calendar 2017. So far you get is circle paper clips, a pen from their current collection, christmas tree gift tags, mini to do list, gold sparkly washi tape, two mini notebooks, mini thank you cards + envelopes and a sliver star ornament! So excited to open the first one tomorrow!

If your wondering what the heck is an nice cream.. Well to put it in simplest terms, it's a frozen dessert, smilier to an ice cream BUT without any diary, eggs or sugar! So basically it's frozen banana's blended up into a soft serve but you can add in additional ingredients such as chocolate, nuts, berries etc. This recipe was inspired by a fellow blogger Andrea from earthyandy  "Peanut Butter Chocolate Mood, check her out blog and her vegan recipes too! 


+ 8 frozen Almond Milk Ice Cubes
+ Almond Milk
+ 4 frozen bananas 
+ 2 tbs coconut sugar
+ 1/4 Peanut butter
+ 1/2 tsp vanilla extract 
+ 1 tbs cocoa powder  

STEP ONE:  Place the frozen almond milk ice cubes, frozen bananas, coconut sugar, peanut butter, vanilla extract and cocoa powder into the blender and mash it together until its thick and creamy. If you do not have a strong blender than just add almond milk into the blender to make it blend easier. 

STEP TWO:  When you have the right consistency of the nice cream (thick and creamy) serve it into a mason jar/cup or bowl and share it to your friends and family! 

And there you have it a quick and easy vegan peanut butter chocolate nice cream! This is such a great treat for kids and us adults during the summer months and also it's super fun to make with kids too, just remember to place the bananas and almond milk into the freeze the night before you want to make this recipe!

Have you ever tried a 'nice cream' before

K O R C U L A island is the 6th largest Adriatic island, which stretches nearly 47km in length! On Korcula island you can find little towns, vineyards, pine forests, fishing villages, olive groves, beautiful crystal clear beaches and little bays, stone old walls and a church bell. There are so many things to do and see in Korcula Island such as St Mark's Cathedral, Marco Polo's House, Town museum, St Peter's Church etc.

Where to S T A Y;

Carpe Diem Apartments - This is were I stayed and is located right along the beach and loads of resturants! 

☆ Strecica Bay Korcula Apartment - Located 15 minutes from Old Town and sits near the sea and it's ideal for families.

 Old Town Korcula Apartment - A four story Old Town house which has now modern touches and has beautiful views of the Old Town. 

☆ Hostel Caenazzo - A hotel which is located in the centre of Old Town.

 Hotel Korsal - located in Korcula's traffic free zone and is very close to the marina, bus and ferry stations. 

Where to E A T;

☆  Buffet Pizzeria Amfora - This pizza restaurant can be found in the narrow streets of Old Town. 

☆ Aldio Mare - is one of the oldest restaurant in Old Town and is where you can find yummy high quality Dalmatian cuisine. 

 Cafe Resturant Plaza Przina - offers top notch coffees, teas, beer, wines and ice creams!

☆ Cafe Bar Servantes - a great way to people watch and of course enjoy your morning with a cup of coffee which is known to serve the best expresso and cappuccino on the island!

What to S E E & DO;

 Cycle on Korcula Island - It is the perfect way to expore the island on a bicycle all year round!

☆ Visit Marco Polo's Home on the Island of Korcula - You can go inside Marco Polo's home, the famous world traveler, writer and explorer! 

 Korcula's Picturesque Old Town - was built on a small peninsula, where you can find medieval walled old town gentian styled buildings with red rooftops as Dubrovnik hence why Korcula Island has received the name "Little Dubrovnik". 

☆ Visit Korcula Town Museum - the best way to learn about the island and it's history.

 Visit St. Mark's Cathedral - If you are a architecture lover like me then you must visit the beautiful Gothic Renaissance styled church which is built on the highest point of the peninsula. It is also known to be the most important building in Old Town!

How to get THERE;

☆  Air - Book your flight either at Split or Dubrovnik airport and then make your way via a ferry or a seaplane! 

☆ Bus - All year round, there are buses to Korcula Island, so catch a bus from Dubrovnik to Korcula island!

 Car - You can either drive yourself or get a taxi which uses the same Orebic car ferry option!

If you ever visit Croatia during the summer months or even during the winter months, I definitely recommend visintg this Island. You will not be disappointed! I must say the beaches at Korcula island are not sandy like Australia beaches are but rather all have rocks/pebbles instead. Which in fact it will burn your feet - so wear shoes at all times and even when you swim! I remember that I stept on a sea urchin while swimming in the Adriatic sea so water shoes are a must at all times! 

Have you ever been or heard of Korcula Island before?

H e l l o November! Cant believe it's already the last month of Spring and Summer is only 28 days away and I'm super excited!! ALSO that Christmas is approaching really fast and I still haven't started my christmas shopping yet (has anyone else not started?)!! Anyways, I wanted to share with you all, my favourite lipsticks that I've been currently loving and using over past 2 months of Spring. 

 Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.SI.N.G Lipstick: Stoned Rose is a beautiful warm peach coral pink creamy lipstick and is my absolutely favourite one to wear for an everyday make up look.

 Tarte LipSurgenece Matte Lip Tint: Lucky is a gorgeous light pink lip tint with a soft and velvet matte finish! Also great for a simple make up look.

 Tarte Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint: Pillowtalk is a warm peach with a matte finish and it seriously dries down instantly with no transferring at all!! 

 Kim Kardashian West x Kylie Cosmetics: Kim is a nude with peachy pink undertones and I absolutely love this colour, looks so fresh and natural! 

 Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Liptsick: Muñeca is a light-medium, peachy coral with a matte finish and has a buildble opaque coverage if you apply two distinct layers! Absolutely love this matte lipstick shade. 

If you can tell that most of the lipsticks/tints are basically have the same common colour - a peachy pink. All lipsticks are easy to apply on and stay for a couple of hours and of course are super gorgeous to wear during the spring months! 

Have you tried anyone of this lipsticks before?
