1. What I'm reading :
The Surrender Experiment by Michael Singer.
I discovered this book by chance, in a course I was doing with the Zach Bush in which every month there is a book club with several selections of "positive" books. This book makes us think about how much easier it would be if we lived in a less reactive way.

2. What I'm listening to :
The Artists Way by Julia Cameron.
I spend a lot of time in the car, and I try my best to take advantage of that time..which often seems lost. I listen to a lot of books.. love. This one in particular has been "behind me" for a while.. always hearing about him in a lot of different situations. So much so that I decided to listen and good thing! It is very inoperative and constructive. It has helped me a lot in my day to day.

3. The podcast I enjoyed the most this week :
Mega fan of Seth Godin (if you haven't read it and have the soul of a businesswoman Read It it book!). Who doesn't like The Rich Roll?!  Lots of good tips in this podcast.
4. What I don't stop using :
Super Hair Serum , on the scalp at least twice a week.
Always using theBergamot Shampoo and hair drying with the Dyson cold dryer. Why? If you haven't seen the video about the hair I did it's worth it! It explains how to prevent falling and stimulate growth naturally and very successfully. Look here.

5. To use:
On repeat it earrings Vintage Bazaar.
And this kimono it smells like Spring!

6. Doing every Saturday
At home, it's tradition. There are those who like them more “badly done” still with pasta in the middle (Diogo and I). Try it is worth it. A super quick weekend treat

Pancakes recipe
Serves 4

1 1/2 cups plain flour (I use white)
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 dessert spoons of yellow sugar or honey
1 cup milk
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 dessert spoons unsalted butter, melted-extra for cooking the pancakes

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and sugar. Book.

In a measuring jug place the milk, egg and vanilla. Mix. Turn into the bowl with the flour. Incorporate with a whisk. Stir in the melted butter and wrap well.

Heat a skillet over medium heat (I use the one I melted the butter in.. without cleaning). Melt a little more butter. Pour spoonfuls of the pancake batter into the pan - whatever size you like, we make it small here at home. Turn when balls begin to appear on the surface and cook until golden brown.

Serve with acer syrup or compote.

Chai recipe  
Obsessed with this drink. It's hard to find a good chai. But I discovered one a little far, herewhen I went to visit my daughter Marina in Copenhagen (she is working in a pastry shop there).
This recipe is based on the one they have in the self-published book.

The recipe makes enough to drink a few times, just store in the fridge and warm up whenever you like.

7 cardamoms
4 black peppers
2 cloves
1 cinnamon stick
Pinch of nutmeg
1 c Chaga tea
5 ginger fajitas
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
400ml water
400ml milk
Sugar or honey to taste

Put the spices in a mortar and crush slightly. Place all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer over low heat.  Bring to a boil. Turn off the heat and cover.
Leave to infuse for 5 minutes.

Pour into a teapot, straining the spices.
