Oggi / today I want to talk to you about good – real good – Italian food!
I love Italy and I won’t be lying as I said that I almost love every Italian dish… I am a big fan of the Italian kitchen. From Pizza & Pasta Bolognese, to a nice risotto or the perfect vermicelli dish.
I would not be lying either when I would say that most of the people I know love my Lasagna’s and my pesto pasta salad was pretty popular during the Christmas dinner.
Okay I’ll stop bragging ’bout it!
Today I want to tell you a bit about the various ways to make a good and delicious pasta Carbonara. With some tips from a Vapiani (a pasta chef at Italian Fresh-Fast-Food chain Vapiano).
I’ve got so much inspiration at the moment and as I do not do vlogs – yet – I decided to join the blogmas hype. Maybe I will follow later this month by also joining the #vlogmas movement! Or start something new, how about #12daysofvlogmas from the moment Christmas starts?!
So what will Blogmas on SarandaAdriana.com mean?
Well the first thing is that I will blog, every single day, until Christmas! Lots of blogposts too come! 😀
Second there will, of course, be Christmas themed blogpost. I think around 2 – 3 per week!
Last but not least I will take you with me (maybe in a vlog) when preparing for Christmas. Think about picking out the perfect tree, decorating the tree but also planning Christmas eve, giftshopping and preparing for Christmas dinner!
I am really excited and I really hope you are too!
Last Tuesday I went to Utrecht and Amsterdam for two amazing things. First thing I had planned was meeting up with my babe Siham to catch up and have some food on a terrace next to the Utrecht canals. It was obviously that it was time to catch up again as we had so much to tell each other… And to be honest it felt really good to also tell her about some of the worries I have. It really relaxed me and this was the perfect way to spend my afternoon before heading to Amsterdam for a cool blogger event!
PR:REPUBLIC and ECCO invited me to come to the daylight studio 13 in Amsterdam to celebrate the launch of the #ECCOsoft7 together with a group of +- 20 other bloggers. The event was super well organized and the daylight studio is truly one of the most gorgeous places I have ever been! All white with big windows and a wooden floor! Loved it.
At the event we got to make our own leather ECCO clutches, which was super fun, we had the option to get a drawing of our outfit made by the ‘famous’ Dutch illustrator Sella Molenaar and last but not least we got the opportunity to win a trip to Copenhagen!
Of course I tried my utmost best to win the trip to Copenhagen, however I didn’t win the trip but I did won a pair of ECCO soft 7 sneakers, yay me!
Now I won’t be going to Copenhagen but I did plan and book a trip to Milan in the end of september during Fashion Week. Because well, I can use a little getaway 😉
I really loved the #ECCOsoft7 eventCheck out some photos of the event after the read more button!
OMG I am so excited to share this blogpost with you! Two weekends ago I was invited to go to this huge open air festival in Holland called Extrema Outdoor. This festival is all about love, peace and music and M.A.C. cosmetics was doing the make-up for the opening and end show.
Unlimited PR asked me if I wanted to join them and M.A.C. to this festival with backstage access to see the make-up artists working their cosmetics make-up! This day I took a lot of photos, enjoyed the festival together with fellow bloggers, Laura from Unlimited PR and my lovely boyfriend who decided he could not let this cool festival pass by without joining me… 🙂
Not only was it super interesting too see the make-up artists at work, it was also really amazing that we were treated like VIP’s the whole day! From free drinks, and amazing, healthy lunch, M.A.C. touch up at the Bijenkorf and a little goodiebag from M.A.C.!
The whole experience was well conceived and organised. At the end of the day I was pretty tired but this day was really one of the coolest events I have had as a blogger! Thanks again to Laura, Unlimited PR, M.A.C. Cosmetics and Extrema Outdoor for this day, it was pretty freaking awesome!
A couple of weeks ago I was invited to join Maison PR to the Garcia jeans FW15 show at the Van Nelle Factory in Rotterdam. Together with a lot of people from the international fashion press and just a handful of fellow Dutch bloggers I enjoyed a wonderful show from the Dutch brand with Italian roots.
I was really honored to be there and to be able to now share this report with you all! As a Dutchy with an Italian heart, love of Italian fashion and taste of Italian food, this was truly one of the most amazing events I have ever been to!
The event started with a little peak backstage where we saw a part of the shows rehearsal, models in hair and make-up and we already saw some cool items! The event ended with a denim focused show which by far exceeded my expectations!
I fell totally fell head over heels in love with this brand. Check out my report including a little preview of the upcoming fall collection! What is your opinion on Garcia Jeans?!
