Lovely little things // Week 41
Evening lovelies! It is time for another post in my ‘Lovely little things’ series where I share some of the things from the previous week that have somehow had an positive impact on me – however small or big these things might be. It is all about appreciating and enjoying the little things in life, to stop and take notice of the everyday things that brings joy and to give you guys a little bit of insight into the person who is behind A Million Miles.
First up we have a (kinda) blurry photo of yours truly, it is rare that I make an appearance on here, you know how camera shy I am, but I am going to try and be a bit more present. I think it is nice that you get to know just a little bit more about the person behind the blog :) The reason for my smile is the beyond delicious raw chocolate slices with coconut and raspberry that I am holding, haha it is definitely the look of love! I made these yummy treats last week and I have been enjoying a slice everyday while watching Power – I am absolutely hooked! Both on the treat and the show, haha I am already on the last episode of season 2!! I always get way too obsessed when I discover a new show. It is nice to have something to look forward to though, I have been working a lot and I haven’t been feeling too well, so one of these slices + an episode (haha okay more than one episode) of Power have been a good way to end the day. I will post the recipe for the raw chocolate slices for you guys tomorrow ❤︎
¨ Edible flowers growing wild ¨
You have seen these colorful beauties in many of my photos and I actually even grow them in my garden, but I don’t have any left and my plant seems to be in full fall mode, so I was very happily surprised when I came across these beauties growing up the wall of our shed. The whole area is a bit of a mess since the garden is still a work in progress, but these beauties are growing everywhere and it just looks too cute! They are actually coming from the neighbors property, haha but now they are on our side of the fence, so I am going to steal some for my salads and smoothie bowls ;)
If you want to plant your own next year they are called Tropaeolum majus and you can actually eat the leaves as well.
¨ New in ¨
Look at all these goodies I got in the mail, can you guess what I need them for? I have a whole lot more coming soon and I cannot wait to share everything with you guys, I have so many DIY projects planned! I am going to share a lot of natural and homemade beauty/skincare recipes with you + some DIY’s for the home as well. Let me know if you have any requests or wishes ❤︎
¨ My favorite kale salad ¨
I have been making this yummy kale salad several times last week, it is one of my go-to’s in the fall and I always make a big batch so I can share with my sister. Haha she is actually usually not that keen on my healthy cooking, but she absolutely love this salad!
You can find the recipe right here!
¨ Just do it ¨
I haven’t really been feeling well this past week, I am very easily affected by changes in the season and the weather and I just don’t thrive in autumn and winter when it is so dark and cold. It really messes with my mood and I have just been feeling so down and tired all week. In order to try and feel better I finally got back to working out though, so at least something good came of it. I usually don’t feel like this, but I have been longing to workout and go running all week and have actually done so almost everyday, it feels good to get back on track. I can’t really do too much because of my back, but short runs, power walks and exercises without too much weight seems to be okay. It makes me so happy to go outside in the fresh air and get moving. I have really missed this feeling, hopefully it will stay this time. They do say that running is the cheapest form of therapy ;)
