Dailystills: October 2014

Hey everybody! Are you guys ready for fall? Even though I love summer, I'm kinda looking forward to fall this year. This is my favorite change of seasons and I'm planning to enjoy it. So hand me my Pumpkin Spice Latte and a camera to photograph the lovely colorful leaves. We've made a fall themed Dailystills for October and I hope you're gonna enjoy it.

Are you joining us in October? 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 October the prompt for day 1 is ‘After work. So take a photo when you're done with work, or something you do after work, you name it!
 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 :)

Project Life: Week 33

Just one page for this week. We had a very relaxing weekend and I didn't take a lot of photos, so that's why :) I've used my Studio Calico kit and a Becky Higgins page protector.

Snippets of my life #59

This week I celebrated my 29th birthday for my parents, brother and sister in law. I already celebrated it for my friends the week before. So last wednesday I've made a Taco Party! It was a fun evening with my lovely family. I also made lots of lovely food, had fun with my colleagues and I dyed my hair black again!
My weekend was super busy, but fun. I went to bootcamp, where they've filmed a promo movie, I'll share the video here when it's done. I've made a delicious green smoothie, the mister did MudMasters and I photographed everybody, because I couldn't join (damn shin splints). After MudMasters the mister took me out for dinner, tapas!

Outfit: In between seasons

This month the weather is really nice. It's still a bit warm outside, but you can feel fall is coming. It's less humid, there's more fresh air. I love this weather. To warm for a coat, but perfect for a nice blazer. So today I chose to wear an outfit I'd normally wear in summer, but with a blazer to keep me warm.

The t-shirt I'm wearing has a cute lace details on the sleeves and back.
What I'm wearing:
Blazer: Pull & Bear - Pants: Vila - Top: H&M - Shoes: Toms - Watch: Esprit

My favorite nail polish brand: O.P.I.! This is Every month is Octoberfest.

Recipe: Nutty Brussels sprouts

Brussel sprouts recipe
Unlike lots of kids, I've always loved me some Brussels sprouts. But when I tried out this new recipe I thought up, I was sold. Even my boyfriend, who never liked them, ate it with an appetite. So I knew I had to share this recipe with the rest of the world!

What you need for two servings:
  • 400 grams Brussels sprouts
  • 2 chicken sausages
  • 100 gram of mixed nuts (I used pecans, walnuts and pistachios)
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  • Lemon juice
  • Olive oil

What you do:
  1. Rinse the Brussels sprouts and slice them in half, bring water to a boil and cook them for 4 minutes.
  2. Heat up some olive oil and bake the sausages until they're almost done.
  3. When the sprouts are done, heat some more olive oil and lay the sprouts in it, with the uncut side facing up (like on the left photo below). Just let them sit there, checking from time to time if the bottom side turns brown.
  4. In the mean time your sausage is done, cut them in little 1/4" (1 cm) slices.
  5. When your sprouts turned golden brown, add the nuts, I chopped them up a bit, for smaller pieces. Stir everything than add the slices of sausage.
  6. Sprinkle it all with lemon juice, sea salt and pepper
I added a bit of puffed quinoa too!
