Happy mind = happy body

So here’s the thing, when writing a blog about pastries and sweet things, you often think about the perception others might have of you or the concept of consuming sweets regularly. I have had a lot of self-image issues in my life time (because I’m so old you know) and I’m very sensitive of critique. I believe that there’s food that nourishes your body, and then there’s food that nourished you soul. Everyone needs to indulge, especially those who has a hard time grasping the necessity of letting loose a little. If you’re not happy, you’re not healthy. Moderation is the key, eat enough good “body” food regularly and indulge in “soul” food regularly but in sensible amounts. As long as your mind is satisfied and at ease, your body will feel good to. So that’s that.

Anyhow, I will be posting a recipe later this week for what I’m making for father’s day.

Happy living folks! Se you all later ❤

The Versatile Blogger Award

Thank, thank, thank you to the lovely Eve from Sam Loves Cake for nominating Sweet Endeavours for The Versatile Blogger Award! In this dark, dull and incredibly wet time of year we Swedes call fall, this was exactly the kind of boost I needed.

Seven things about Carolina:

1. I have an obsession with owls. On necklaces, shirts or note pads doesn’t matter, just give ’em to me!

2. I have very vivid dreams, I’m talking full on films in my head at night.

3. I used to be scared of the dark and now I love walking in the dark.

4. I also love walking in the rain.

5. I miss having cats terribly and I’m getting one as soon as I move out.

6. My entire childhood I was completely convinced I was a witch who hadn’t received her powers yet…

7. …I’m genuinely disappointed I never got my letter from Hogwarts.

Here we go, to the good stuff. The 10 brilliant bloggers I nominate are:

  • Call Me Cupcake! – very well known but still, my daily inspiration!
  • Kale With Love – I’m not vegan or vegetarian but having access to guilt free desserts will never be a bad thing!
  • Made By Mary – Swedish blogger with amazing treats
  • Tattoologist – I dream away on this site for hours
  • Breakfastporn – my dear friends run a blog were they post pictures of their breakfasts, they’re great breakfasts too!
  • Pippi H – Swedish blogger who posts the most amazing pictures of her apartment and everything else in her life.
  • Style Gossiper – great pictures and great fashion
  • ….. This is where I realize I don’t read many blogs, these were at least the only ones I could nominate here. Oh well, less is more, right?

RULES:

–        Thank the person who nominated me and link back to them in my post
–        Share 7 things about myself
–        Pass the award on to 10 more bloggers that I enjoy
–        Contact the bloggers I have chosen to let them know that they have been selected!

XOXO

Mid-week getaway

I’m at my country house at the moment but I just wanted to let you know that there will be two more blog posts uploaded later this week. I hope this looks OK, I’m sending this from my phone because I didn’t bring my computer with me.

Anyway, this morning I took the subway into the city
and had a french little breakfast at my favorite café. If you’re ever in Stockholm, make sure to visit café Saturnus. They serve the greatest breakfast on weekends and their cinnamon rolls are as big as your head. Literally. The coffee is amazing too. This morning I had a bit a craving for something sweet so I had an almond croissant and a cappuccino. The croissant was stuffed with almond paste and topped with slivered almonds and lots of icing sugar. It was divine.

The picture does not do the croissant justice, it looked much better in real life.

Happy baking!

I’m not dead

So, I’ve been gone for awhile… Sorry! I have a lot going on right now, I’m finishing my last semester of high school right now as well as dealing with some personal issues. Just wanted to let you know I’m making éclairs this weekend. YES! You heard it! Since the macarons worked out so well I thought I’d delve into some more French delights! Well, now you know what you have to look forward to! You’ll hear from me soon!

Happy baking!

Upcoming!

There are two posts on the way! My computer is acting up and it wont acknowledge my memory card for my camera when I “plug” it in. I’m trying to fix it though but I don’t want to upload posts without pictures, that’s just boring…

 

LOVE,

Carolina
