Chai Latte

It is that time of the year where you have to sit back and relax.So drop your guard and make some space for the hygge  season.I have been craving all sort of food and drinks lately but my favourite of all is that chai latte.

I am sure some of you knows exactly what I am talking about right? and if some of you doesn’t known yet ,keep scrolling you about to find out.Chai latte, hot chocolate and all these syrup latte come at a cost anywhere you go so don’t go to the coffee shop for a latte instead make one.

Chai Latte is an actual authentic popular Indian hot beverage ,compare to Starbucks or Costa coffee shop the real chai latte doesn’t come as a syrup but only ground spices ,a mix of ginger, cloves,cinnamon,black pepper star anise…Drop few black tea bags as Assam or Darjeeling add some milk  and there you have it.Chai latte ready in less than 8 minutes ! No need to spend £4 for a regular size of chai latte ,So what you said? humm ! Cup of chai latte coming right up!

Here is my recipe:

Chai latte:

  •  1/3 of black pepper
  • Liquorice ( if some of you love it)
  • Nutmeg
  • Vanilla pod
  • Cloves
  • 2 Black tea
  • 2 cup of water
  • 3/4 cup of milk
  • Agave syrup or honey

I used ground spices as below please feel free to decrease the ginger or black pepper as we all know they are quite strong taste.Also feel free to blend the mix spices if you want to and Store in an airtight plastic bag or glass jar.

  1. In a small saucepan, place water, tea bags, and 2 tablespoons chai spice mix. Bring to a boil; put the lid on, remove from heat, and let it steep for 5 minutes.
  2. Remove the tea bags and stir. Strain in to a cup
  3. Bring to boil the milk and your favourite sweetener add a pinch of cinnamon ,stir well.
  4. Remove from the heat when the milk start to be frothy .Pour half of the milk to the tea

5 things that inspired me!

Life is a journey with obstacles, it is up to you to take control of how you react to events in your life. And this is where Inspiration comes in. We’ve all been through something really tough to overcome, but we got to keep moving forward. Inspiration and Motivation are fundamentally the same to me: Ideas Flowing so Take Action.

Today I decided to introduce you 5 things that inspired me.

1: Setting the goal

Write down your goal.

Writing down my goal certainly has a big impact on my life. It adds excitement, discipline, motivation to an everyday routine. So go and jot down your goal, you’ll be surprised by the result. This one small method can lead to a radical change of aspects.

2: Possibilities : Yes, I can

“The one who says “yes I can” is usually the one who gets the job and succeeds.” Alan Cohen.

Possibilities are tricky, the way they are hidden in every circumstances. You are the one who got the key to open them. For a long time I wanted to take boxing lessons, but I was shy, embarrassed to go to a gym class. Untill the point when I decided to take the risk and chose the place. The boxing club was packed with big muscular men, professional boxers. My first task was to skip, and I couldn’t, my boobies and my booty were jiggling and it was embarrassing. But I managed to step out of my comfort zone, lose 7 kg and I never felt better. Possibilities are endless, go and make it happen. Say it out loud with me and be proud: Yes I can.

3: Travel

When I feel stuck, I need to go away for a few days. Travelling is one of the best inspirations ever. It changes your perspective on life. Whether it is a beach escape, city break or a retreat you reconnect automatically with who you are. Travelling is surprising, a great way to come back stronger, fearless, and inspired. It’s certainly works for me.

4: Cooking

Cooking is great way for me to get inspired. I love being in the kitchen and create something new. Cooking is where I have no worries. All my focus, patience and passion connect.

5: Pinterest

Technology has never been better. We are living in a world where the internet is making revolutionary shifts. All these apps and social media are fascinating. Pinterest is one of my favourites, when I need some ideas that is where I’ll go. Home design or positive quotes, fashion tips… What else to ask for? This is my Pinterest if you want to follow my board.

I needed to have my hair back as curly, soft, silky and moisturised.

The Rene Furterer treatment is the best of the best in my opinion.

Everything happens overnight. I apply the Shea butter masque, I rinse it out the next day, and my hair is back in great shape. It is soft and my curls are healthy, bouncy and frizz free. I love this treatment, it is so rich in Shea butter and it smells divine. Rene Furterer is the “Must Have” product in your bathroom right now. Whether your hair is oily, curly, relaxed or afro this is one quality product that will suit your needs. It detangles, hydrates and nourishes and it’s really worth the price.
