Happy FRIDAY my loves! I hope you all had an amazing week, I’ve been a little hermit this past week just staying in, cooking, baking and trying to stay warm! This week I baked liege Belgian waffles, the yeast waffles studded with pearl sugar (YUM). These little guys took forever to make with making the dough, resting and letting it rise, punching it down and waiting for it to rise again.. then resting it in the fridge for up to 24 hours. ahhh trust me, I am soo not a patient person and the wait was painful BUT it was totally delicious. I also made these fun and super easy Lucky Charms Rice Krispies Squares for St. Patrick’s day tomorrow, I’m thinking of trying the recipe with Frosted Flakes or Cinnamon Toast Crunch.. how good would that be! What’s your favourite cereal growing up?

Here are six links I love and hope you love too! Happy weekend xx Sabrina

1. 5 Easy Ways to Practice Gratitude { Shine Text }

This year, we’ve been reading all about self-care and practicing gratitude in the pursuit of happiness. I’ve been seeing the 5 minute journals everywhere and been meaning to pick one up for myself as a daily reminder to myself of all the things I have in my life to be grateful for. Materialistic things aside. Here’s a quote I love from Oprah “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”

 

2. Siffat’s Ultimate Guide to Lisbon, Portugal { Icing and Glitter }

Everyone I’ve talk to that’s been to Lisbon, absolutely LOVES it. Joelle’s been there multiple times and raves about it. My friend Siffat just returned from Europe and has nothing but amazing things to say about Lisbon! I’ve also been watching docu-series that highlight the beauty that Lisbon has to offer.. AND the food. Pink buildings, endless shrimp, cute coffee shops and the BEST pastel de nata? Yes please!

 

3. DIY Wood & Brass Letter Holder { A Beautiful Mess }

I have been following A Beautiful Mess for forever. These ladies are insanely creative and talented. I came across their cute DIY on how to make a wood & brass letter holder that would be perfect for my office! The best part is you can paint the base whatever colour your heart desires and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg. Who wants to come over for craft night?

 

4. St. Patrick’s Day Matcha Pudding { The Blondielocks for Lark and Linen }

One of my talented girlfriends Kayle, who’s Instagram and blog is #goals recently made this delicious Matcha Pudding for St. Patricks day! I am a sucker for ANYTHING matcha, matcha lattes, ice cream, cakes.. I’m obsessed. This recipe looks super simple to make and looks so creamy and delicious. Not to mention, they are cute AF. I can not wait to make it this weekend. If anyone knows where to find good quality matcha, let me know! 🙂

 

5. Pistachio Cake { Sally’s Baking Addiction }

Need I say more? Lol.

I recently had this moist pistachio pound cake at one of my favourite coffeeshops and it was so good, I’m still dreaming of it. A couple days later, I had this Pistachio cream filled rose puff pastry that was seriously to die for. So naturally, I had to find a pistachio dessert recipe that would kill all my cravings. I think this one is the one.

 

6. Homemade Oat Milk { Oh She Glows }

When Joelle and I were in LA recently, oat milk was everywhere. It was just like when everyone discovered almond milk and it was all the rage! I’ve tried oat milk previously but wasn’t convince that it was delicious until I had it again in LA. It was creamy, nutty and actually so good. If you follow me on Instagram, you know i LOVE making homemade almond milk. The process takes a while because you need to soak the almonds overnight, as you can soak the oats overnight as well but if you’re in a pinch, you can quickly soak the oats for 30 minutes and make your oat milk
