Today I am so happy to publish another one of Latrina’s posts on travelling. I love these so much already, I’m so lucky to be working together with special and super-creative gals like that. And it’s so nice to be reminded time and time again that travel and adventure doesn’t mean big and expensive trips but can also be just round your doorstep.
I hope you enjoy this post as much as I do (I bet you will!).
Guys, you know that I am a lover of everything home-made and local. That’s practically all I ever talk about on this blog.
After reading a little bit about the topic, visiting the farmer’s market and overall wishing for tastier food, I thought it would be really great if I could try and eliminate (nearly) all industrially produced foods from my kitchen. Meaning all those that have ingredients that I can’t even pronounce or incredible high amounts of sugar.
So last weekend I started with my mission to create a tasty and fast home-made version of all my favourite ‘basic foods’.
After getting a little frustrated with the recipe choices on the internet, I decided to create some recipes myself. If you are like me not in possession of a food processor/ice-making machine/ juicer and thus not able to try 90 % of the recipes online, this is the place for you.
My first project was home-made granola and it was a full success, super-yummy and the fastest and easiest thing ever. And the bonus, my flat smelled incredible for two days. Maybe this would have been more fitting to make in autumn and not on the first summer’s day, but still, I love eating granola, even in the summer. If you want to try it yourself, the recipe is below.

Everlasting Apparel is a column that features my favourite bloggers and creatives wearing a special piece of clothing. One they have loved and worn for a long time. The internet is full of new things we should buy and own, although it is so much better to wear something you have millions of stories connected to.
This week I have the pleasure of welcoming Chelsea from Zipped Blog to this space. I first started following her on Instagram, before I found out that she also had a blog where she shared her lovely outfits. Let’s see what she has to say about her favourite piece:
As long as I’ve been reading blogs (even before I started this one), I always thought the coolest thing about it were all the collaborations and contributions between different bloggers. That’s why I’m so happy to announce that I will be posting a regulare feature on Latrina’s blog, Of Trees and Hues, now.
