DIY bio pesto

We've been keeping our own garden on our balcony for a while now and we've had these basil pots which needed harvesting. Our plants are grow naturally and with no poisonous chemicals (: so we're going to make ourselves some good organic and bio pesto.

all we needed was:

  1. fresh basil leaves
  2. butter
  3. finely grated Parmesan cheese
  4. 1 small glove finely chopped garlic
  5. salt & pepper
  6. cooking pot

for about 200g of basil leaves, let two regular spoons of butter melt into the pan. add the finely chopped basil leaves into the melted butter and let it cook at medium heat for about 3 mins. add a bit more butter (depending of owns preference ~), increase the heat and add the garlic and let it cook for 1 min at high heat. reduce the heat to medium low and add about a regular spoon of Parmesan. more or less according to taste.

Thank you for reading!

Moroccan adventure

After what seemed like the most hectic exam period we've had at uni, our well deserved trip to Morocco has finally arrived. I didn't know much about this country as a whole or its cities, but Marrakesh was the chosen destination for 4 days. 

I don't even know how to start describing whole the trip! I won't. But here are a few insider tips of what there is to do in Marrakesh:

Souks! These markets are always crazy and full of animation! Everything can be found there from snake toys, to beautiful tea sets, to hand made leather bags and snake charmers. This is definitely the place to be if you like wandering around the 'hassle & bustle'.

Tanneries... Although the animal/leather stench is quite powerful, being someone who loves DIY, it was really interesting to see how leather is processed. There was also an explanation of how they use and make colors the 'all naturaaal' way, with spices. At the end of the visit, they make you go through the tannery store (a.k.a souvenir store). Of course, this is for 'typical tourists' but actually, products found in these tannery shops are not the same as what can be found in the souk markets (some of those might be made in china or the colors are artificial)

 I had to get myself some leather! Couldn't help it for future DIYs ^^

Riads. Which is the name given to a typical Moroccan guest house. We stayed in a beautiful and very charming one called Riad Shaloma, located right next to one of the Palaces of the city. They aren't always easy to find as they are usually small (8 to 15 rooms) and tucked away in a maze of tiny streets and alleys. The host was wonderful, always prepared to answer our question and greet us the 'Moroccan way'.

Majorelle Garden... A beautifully entertained garden with the most interesting plants I've ever seen yet! This is definitely a place to stop by for some calm and quite time just observing all the colors. This is considering it wasn't even the season for flowers to blossom yet! There was also an Yves Saint Lauren memorial in the garden LOVE posters made by him.
