COCKTAILS & POPCORN ft. SkinnyPop ♡

Hello my loves! How are you feeling now that summer is coming to an end? I am obviously really sad and I feel that it went by so fast but, at the same time, I am so happy for all the experiences that I had and all the memories. Also, I am particularly excited for fall, because September is when we start getting back in schedule and everyone is around again and the weather is nice.

Speaking of nice weather, there is nothing I enjoy more than outdoor celebrations. Fall is the perfect time to do such a thing since it's not too warm nor too cold and it's very befitting if you want to celebrate new beginnings or just see your friends again after the summer break. 

Now, there are numerous things you could do, from picnics to game nights to cooking mexican food with friends-which is my favorite. But, they all most certainly include alcohol. I don't particularly enjoy any booze other than wine (yay for rosé ♥), so cocktails really save the day when it comes to drinking something else. They are also much more boujee, fashionable and ladylike ;)



If you are like me and you can't quite understand those people who drink whiskey neat, then I am sure you are going to love the cocktails that my friends from SkinnyPop put together. I think there is one for every taste and they also propose some pairings with their uniquely flavored popcorn! I think the White peach Sangria one would taste divine!

I don't know about you, but I am dying to try out these cocktails and combinations at my next get-together with friends! What about you guys? What is your go-to drink for occasions like that? Let me know in the comments below ♥

FOOD HYBRIDS THAT YOU REALLY WANT TO TRY BUT YOU SHOULDN'T

Hey guys! How are you? I'm struggling here and I will continue to, until the middle of July. This is probably going to be the most tiring summer ever, but I keep trying to convince myself that it won't. 
Enough with the nagging. This is a post that I'm sure you didn't expect here. I was thinking for a long time to start a category about fitness since I'm really interested in that, so I made this post to see how you guys react to it.
I'm really into working out and being healthy. I've been an athlete my entire life and I stopped this year because I couldn't fit volleyball practice in my schedule:( But muscles are still there, and whenever I find the time I love to go running or just do some exercises to get that blood flowing.
But as a person, and a girl with high caloric/energy needs, I indulge. Desserts are my weakness, sugar in particular, but it's not good for you, especially if it's highly processed. I don't just mean your weight. Of course we all want to have a nice body externally, but my primary concern is to keep my body healthy. Do you know how bad sugar is for your body? And fats and protein that come from packaged food?
People have been going nuts about these new innovations where two (sometimes completely)different foods are combined into one. Food Hybrids they are called and they are the new it-thing since last year. And since I'm always talking to you about the trends, this is the best way to start a new category. Let's get this clear, I don't mean like an orange an a lime, which also exists, but, let's say, a croissant and a donut(cronut). I'm being obvious here^* I did my research and I found some pretty disgusting ones, and some that look delicious. But guys, really, don't eat these. I mean not in a daily basis. Giving in to your cravings once in a while can't do much harm. But having your rich in fat craving every day for breakfast, not so smart. 
So, here are some that I think might taste good. Foods that I like separately and look interesting together. Thank god I'm currently eating super healthy!
1. Cronut. (croissant+donut) What started this madness in the first place. approx. 510-590 calories/cronut
2. Red velvet pancakes. Maybe the color is worth it-not. approx. 200 calories/pancake
3. Cupcake cones. (cone+cupcake dough+frosting). Ice cream instead of frosting would be interesting. approx. 220 calories/cone
Donut macarons. Perfect for those wanting to celebrate National Donut Day but need to eat gluten free!
4. Donut Macarons. Basically macarons that look like donuts. approx. 100≤ calories/macaron
S'Mores   Oreos = S'MOreos! OH YES! For camping this summer!
5. S'moreo. (oreo+marshmallow[+chocolate/caramel]+oreo)  S'mores but with oreos instead of biscuits. approx. 125 calories/s'moreo
6. Brookie. (brownie+cookie) Isn't brownie partly cookie already? approx. 160 calories/brookie
7. Duffins. (donuts+muffins) Donuts here, donuts there, donuts everywhere! approx. 406 calories/duffin
8. Brouffle. (brownie+truffle) Hey brownie, it's you again! approx. 130-243 calories/brouffle
French Toast Bagel
9. French toast bagel. Because regular thin sliced bread fried wasn't unhealthy enough :P approx. 340 calories
10. Wonut. (waffle+donut) Donut fever. -couldn't count the calories but it's a lot.
There are so many more that I could add here and of course let's not forget the non-sweet ones. I saw some pasta burger out there. I think that it's fun to try these things, especially because of their names, but the [- + - = +] doesn't apply here. Two foods that are initially bad for you, together are still bad:( Unfortunately. If only we could keep the taste and toss the fat and the calories.
Indulging is in our nature and part of a balanced nutrition is having a bit of everything. These just happen to be the part of "everything" that you only need to have a tiny bite from.
