Dailystills: September

Hey there September! It's time to share the new Dailystills for this month! Are you joining us in September? Let us know on Instagram :) My IG account: @mandy_fisher and Shannon: @shanimal_. You're allowed to save this photo and share it on Instagram too, enjoy!

Not sure how Dailystills works? Let me explain..

Grab your camera or phone.
Look at the monthly list to find the prompt for the day. The number corresponds to the date of the month.
Take a photo using the prompt as inspiration. So for September the prompt for day 1 is ‘Right now’. So take a photo right now, or at your favorite time of the day, whatever you want!
Now you’ve taken a picture, it’s time to share it on Instagram. Use the hashtag #dailystills so we can all see and like it! Note: There are also people who share their Dailystills on Facebook, Twitter or their blog. So no worries when you don't use Instagram, just share them wherever you like :)

Recipe: Couscous salad

Hey there! Once in a while I like to make this couscous salad, because it's easy, delicious and healthy. And there are always left over, so you'll be able to eat it for lunch the next day.

What you need:
  • 180 grams spelt couscous
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 garlic clove
  • smoked chicken breast
  • green paprika
  • yellow paprika
  • 8 cherry tomatoes
  • 3 spring onions
  • cubed feta cheese
  • rocket
  • roasted pine nuts
  • fresh grounded sea salt and black pepper
  • lemon juice

What you do:
  1. Cook the couscous as directed on the package, when it's done, stir in the butter and garlic. Let it cool down.
  2. Cut the paprikas, cherry tomatoes and spring onions into little pieces and mix it with the couscous. Also add the cubed feta cheese. 
  3. Add the salt, black pepper and lemon juice to taste.
  4. Put as much as you like on a plate and top the mixture with rocket and pine nuts.

I usually add some fresh baked whole wheat slices of bread when I have this for dinner. When I take it with me to work for lunch I'll bring the rocket and pine nuts in a separate container, so it will stay fresh and crunchy!

Project Life: Week 30

This week I've used the left side of the spread for my work week. I've made 2 name paintings, we went to bootcamp, went to my mom's birthday and had a Starbucks date with Sniffles. The right page I've used for the photos from Welcome to the Future Festival. I've got so much photos and I didn't really do anything special on sunday, so I decided that this was a fun way to remember the festival!

I've used the Becky Higgins Project Life page protectors and some goodies from my Studio Calico Project Life kits. The washi tapes are from Hema.

Buddha says hi!

It's been a while since Buddha said hi! But here he is, with his gray snout trying to impress y'all ;) We're on vacation at the moment and Buddha joined us. So I was able to do a little photo shoot with the little fella. He usually turns his head when I'm in front of him with a camera, but this time he stood perfectly still, like a real model.

Project Life: Week 29

Hey there! I've got another Project Life spread to share with you. Week 29, again a great week. We worked out a lot, we celebrated our 2 year (dating) anniversary and we enjoyed the wonderful weather. I've used the Becky Higgins Project Life page protectors and some goodies from my Studio Calico Project Life kits. I love that filler card!
