Recipe: Nutella cake with almonds

I'm not sure if you know, but I love baking. It calms me down and I'm really happy when I bake. A few days ago my dear friend had a birthday and yesterday she celebrated it, so I baked a cake and some muffins and then we have decorated it with my sister. She made a special mass and it's called white fondant. Our friend loves blue and butterflies and that's how the theme for this cake and muffins was called. :)

Nutella cake with almonds:
* baking dish 28 cm

Ingredients:
- 12 eggs
- 240 g of sugar
- 360 g of flour
- 1 vanilla sugar
- 1 baking powder
- 4-5 big spoons of Nutella

First you need to separate eggs. Eggs whites with a half of the sugar (120 g) you need to make into hard snow. Your next step is to mix eggs yolks with another half of the sugar and add 4-5 spoons of Nutella. Then you add to Nutella mix 1/3 of snow and flour with baking powder, then the rest of snow and in the end vanilla sugar. Then you just gently mix all the ingredients together and pour mass into the baking dish. Bake at 180 degrees for approximately half an hour.

When the cake is baked and cooled cut it into 3 layers. Every layer we moisten with cold milk. 

Filing:
0,5 l of sweet cream
5 spoons of Nutella
a few wafers
150 g of chopped almonds
50 g of chocolate (liquid it)

First you mix sweet cream and add Nutella in mixed cream. You need to blend wafers and a half of almonds in hand mixer, the other half of almonds should stay chopped.

On the first layer you first put Nutella with mixed cream. Then you pour a few drops of liquid chocolate and then you put on this blended wafers and almonds and on this a few chopped wafers. Then you put another layer and you repeat the process. 

After you are done you can decorate your cake with sweet cream or with white chocolate or with 
white and blue fondant (it made it my sister) like we did.


Like I said on the beginning of this post I have baked a few muffins for my friend too. They were buttery with pieces of chocolate. My friend was 25 years old, but you can see a muffin that has number 30 on too. This one was for another friend, because we haven't baked him anything when he had his birthday. :)
If you want a recipe for muffins let me know! :)

Oh, one more thing. I have just joined Twitter. If you have it you can add me there: FPinkheart 

Bon appetite.
Kisses,
J.

11. I really don't like orange color. Really don't like. Except when it comes to cats. I love orange cats.


Now it's time for Monika's questions.

1. What tv shows do you like to watch?
I love all sorts of tv shows. I watch way too many series. My favorite ones are: Pretty Little Liars, Revenge, Hart od Dixie, Family Guy, True Blood, The Vampire Diaries, The Big Bang Theory, The Mentalist, etc. 

2. What is your favorite song?
I usually don't have a favorite song, because usally I like several songs at the same time, but if I have to choose I would say that: Lilly Wood & The Prick and Robin Schulz - Prayer In C (Robin Schulz Remix)
This song really calms me down. :)

3. What would you say is your best characteristic?

When they are realible. I need to know that I can count on someone when I make some plans or when I'm in trouble.

7. How would you describe your personal style?
I don't know if I can describe my style with elegant, girly, sporty. My outfit is based on how I feel at that time when I'm wearing it, but always it has something that screams Julija. :)

8. What is your favorite color?
Like I already said: I love pink. But I don't like to wear it too much. Most of the time I have at least one piece in black color on me.

9. What is your favorite food?
That's a tough one. I love food. I love spinach and I love pizza. I love healthy food and I love junk food. Probably I don't even have favorite food (because chocolate doesn't count as a real meal :P)

It's Christmas. I love that time because of all the baking and family time.

11. What annoys you the most? 
People that think that they are something, but they are a total zero.

My job now would be that I would nominatee 10 bloggers and give them another 11 questions, but I won't do that. Dear reader, if you like this Liebster Award I nominatee you and you can answer on questions that Monika asked. :)

I hope you liked this Tag. 
I'm sure you have learned some new things about me.

Again?!

So, this is summer?! It sure doesn't feel like it. It's so cold and it's raining all the time. Most of my new summer wardrobe I wore only once or I didn't even had a chance. A few posts ago I wrote how much I love this weather, because I can wear my boyfriend jeans, but now I'm not so sure about how much I love this weather anymore. But I still love my boyfriend jeans and they are one of my top 10 pieces in my wardrobe and sure as hell I need to buy them more! :) I think that you can combine them with everything. This outfit is including boyfriend jeans (yes I know- again), my favorite tartan shirt (I still love it and I don't care if tartan is not very trendy anymore), a sporty white tee, big watch and big earrings with lions. I would say that this is my sporty style. :) 






*wearing: jeans&white tee: New Yorker, shirt&shoes: H&M, bag: Pimkie, watch&earrings: Alliexpress

Hope you had a fun weekend (I sure did! :D)
kisses,
J.

Banjole portraits

This week I was a bit absent from my blog, because I was at the Seaside with my friends. We were staying in a villa with a jacuzzi in a small village Banjole near Pula (Croatia). I had an amazing time and I wish that this vacation wouldn't end. Friends, party, alcohol, party, sun, sea, party, beach, jacuzzi... these are just a few words how would I describe our vacation. As you can see I wrote a word party a few times. :)
I don't have any pictures of my outfits, because I wasn't really thinking about my blog there, but I have some portrait pictures that my friend took and a picture of me while I was posing for the pictures where you can see my whole trip outfit. :)





I love this tee (from: New Yorker). It's so comfy.
On these pictures I'm not wearing any make up, because they were taken right before we were heading towards our home and I just knew that I will fall asleep on the way.
Just a comfy tee, leather shorts and some flip flops (everything from New Yorker). :)

This is Pula Arena. I think it's amazing! It looks like a Colosseum in Rome. Unfortunately I only saw it at night.

Our jacuzzi. 

Oh how much fun I had for the past week... but now - back to life, back to reality!
Some day I will stay there and travel away forever, that's what I promise to myself! :)
I hope you had a great week.
Kisses,
J.

Summer Beach Wear

A lovely lady from awesome web page Raise.com has recently contacted me to participate in their campaign called Summer beach wear. My job was to do an outfit that I would wear this summer.
A few days ago I went to the river nearby with my big hat, sandals, wide dress and my sister. She said that this outfit is suitable for every occasion and that this should be my outfit for this campaign, and I agreed.The landscape on the pictures looks almost like I would be at the sea and this dress is the one you can really wear in any time of the day or night in summer. You can wear it when you go on a breakfast or for a lunch or for a long walk around the sea or for a night out if you add some gorgeous heels or even for special events such like fancy dinners or a date. It really is perfect and comfortable!
We also decided that these pictures will also be for her web page Drobcene stvari Katie, because I was wearing her beautiful handmade necklace and we kind of liked how these pictures turned out. So I have killed two flies at once! :)









So, I still haven't told you what this webpage Raise.com is all about. Raise is the first online marketplace where you can buy and sell gift cards, where you can buy discount gift cards to your favorite stores or sell your unwanted gift cards for cash. From Victoria's secret (you can find Victoria's card here)  to restaurants, their marketplace is full of gift cards to meet all your summer needs.
On this link you can see all the stores/restaurants for which you can buy discount gift cards: BUY
On this link you can sell your gift cards: SELL
I think this is a wonderful idea! :)

What do you think about this web page and my outfit? :)

Have a nice summer day.
Kisses,
J.

Seaside with Batman

I can't believe that a year ago I didn't like Batman. Now I'm like WHY?! I always thought that Batman is a bad and that Batman movies are like "the dark movies". And when I finally decided to watch them I was out of my mind. I adore his logo and Batmobile. <3 hihi, I can't wait to buy a Batman game on Steam and start playing it. Now I will be finally able to do that, because I have a new computer, double yaay :)
Oh, I really need to find some Batman strips. I'm so curios how they look like. If you know where to get them, please let me know. :)


A few days before our family vacation I saw a Batman t-shirt for my little nephew and since I love Batman so much I had to buy him this tee. I have the same, so when we went on a long walk around Privlaka (Zadar, Croatia) we looked like twins, hihi.

Batman has celebrated anniversary of his existence in comic books on 27. June. His character is existing for 75 years. <3

* my little Batman nephew.





I don't like to wear much make up when I'm at the seaside. I wore just some  powder and mascara in the evening.
Here I wore really simple black comfy skirt, because I wanted to emphasize my Batman tee. It's probably my favorite tee in the whole closet. :)

Kisses,
J.
