Mixtape No26

Hello friends, it is time for some music. The last months I was inspired a lot by listening to the La La Land Soundtrack & Dead Man’s Bones (Ryan Goslings band – that you should totally check out!). I also listened to a lot of funky music, after watching Freaks & Geeks, it just makes me so happy sometimes – singing and dancing along. I’m thinking about writing and photographing more for this blog, to revive the spirit. What would you want to see here? Some recipes, posts on moving, photography…? Write me something in the comments, because I need some inspiration from you guys!! Have a wonderful and happy day y’all, enjoy your first day of the new month!

I wish that we were magic
So we wouldn't be 
so young and tragic

My Bullet Journal

I’ve started a bullet journal nearly two months ago and I’m totally happy with it. I got rid of all the bookmarks on my laptop and all the different paper notes, that stuck everywhere in my room. If you want to get some inspiration for your own bullet journal adventure, here are some sites you could visit: the official bullet journal website (from the guy who invented it), some bullet journal hacks, design inspiration and elements, different weekly spread inspiration. If you are on the hunt for some inspiration take a look at some Instagram accounts, like christina77star or boho.berry.

What I love about bullet journals is that you can design it however you want. You could make it very minimal (like me) or you can work with different colours, paper, tapes… The possibilities are endless here.

record the past, and plan for the future."

More videos about bullet journaling

There’s a ton of videos around the web, so don’t get overwhelmed. You can find a lot of ideas online, but the easiest way is to simply start your own journey. Maybe write a list of pages you want to have in your bullet journal and then just start it. You don’t have to buy an expensive journal right away. If you’re not sure if this system suits you, just take one the old journals lying around and try bullet journaling. If it feels right after some time, then buy a good journal (a Moleskin or a Leuchtturm).

Scrambled Tofu

The other day I went to have some breakfast with my mother. At the vegan café they served us some delicious scrambled tofu and I instantly fell in love with it. A bowl of it gives you the energy for a full day.

What you need (serves 2):
200 g tofu (1 package)

1 onion, thinly sliced

1 sweet potato

5 - 7 little mushrooms

1 cup kale, loosely chopped

1/2 zucchini

pepper, salt

garlic- cumin- chili powder (1/2 teaspoon each)

1/2 teaspoon turmeric

optional: bread + hummus
How it works:

Unwrap the tofu and crumble it with a fork. Set aside. Prepare a sauce by adding the spices to a bowl and adding enough water to make it pourable. Prepare the vegetables and put the chopped sweet potato in a pot. Cover it with water and boil it. Then let it simmer at medium heat for about 5 minutes. Pour out all the water.

Warm a large skillet over medium heat. Add 2 Tbsp of olive oil and the onion. Add kale and the sweet potato. After about 2 minutes add the other vegetables and the tofu. Then pour the sauce over the ingredients. Cook for another 5 – 7 minutes until the tofu is slightly browned. Serve immediately with bread and hummus. Or chip potatoes, toast or salsa sauce.
