Wardrobe makeover

 I just got the new dolly magazine today and saw this (pg 38) i love this and its inspired me to clean out my wardrobe and clean it up. I have clothes and shoes hanging out my wardobe and scattered around my room, i can harldy find things i want to wear and have trouble figgering out what i want to wear and i really need to get new clothes for this season. I wan't get rid of any clothes/shoes that i do not wear anymore or do not fit, like selling them and earning money or giving to charity. keeping clothes that i wear and want and still fit me, going shopping and buying stuff for this season and especially shoes and i need more bottoms like pants, skirts, leggings etc. In the middle of the first picture there are 2 girls holding a hanger which i can use to hang belts and skarfs. So just like in the second picture there is a before and after picture of a girls wardrobe! I will be doing a before and after picture of my wardrobe and we will see what happens! If i get new clothes, if it become really clean or gets jazzed up.

You should try this and you will see a big difference, you will also feel so much happy when you next open those doors of your wardrobe!

Get the new dolly magazine only $7.95 at your local post office.

Swaping for a fun, easy happy you

 Easy changes that'll make a BIG difference!

Jogging For Hula hooping: Researchers have found that hula hooping can torch as many calories per minute as jogging. Best. News. Ever!

Writing about your day For Writing about you: A recent study found that if you write for 15 minutes about your most valued personal trait, you can boost your confidence and relaxation for up to two months. Worth a try!

No dessert For dessert: You're better off having four low-fat desserts (like fruit and a scoop of ice-cream) than one weekly splurge. FOUR desserts? We'll take it!

3 Ways to a flatter tummy

Bloating definitely doesn't go with your bikini!1. Sambo it up: There's been a bit of hoo-ha about bread causing bloat, but the grainy stuff is packed with fibre, Which will actually help your digestive system and lead to a flat tum. Add avocado (full of monounstaturated fat which prevents fat building up on your tummy) and chicken (a protein that your body has to burn up calories to digest) for the perfect sambo combo. yum!
2. Snack right: A fruit smoothie made with probiotic yogurt and berries will speed up your diagestive system and - if your gut's working properly - will make you less likely to puff up.
3. Avoid suger and salt: both cause bloating.

Egg shell brownies

     If you love brownies you will love this!
Ingredients: - 12-16 eggs for the shell (or an 8 inch pan if you want to bake a classic brownie)
- 7 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped (200 g)
- 1 stick butter, room temperature (125 g)
- 3 large eggs
- 1 cup granulated suger
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 tbls unsweetened cocoa powder
Method: 1. To prepare the egg shells, carefully poke a small hole at the bottom of each egg, using a corkscrew bottle bottle opener.
2. Once you have poked a tiny hole, peel back the edges of the hole to expand it a bit. The holes need to be large enough to fit the tip of piping bag inside.
3. Turn the egg upside-down and dump out the contents, which you can store for other preparations i used a wooden skewer to help get all of the egg out of the shell.
4. Rinse the insides of the eggs out throughly over the sink. Then, immerse them in saltwater for thirty minutes (100 g salt for every 1 liter water). Eggs need to be filled with saltwater in order to sink.
5. Rinse the egg shells in cold water and lay  the eggs hole side down on a paper towel to dry.
6. Drizzle about 1 tablespoon of sunflower oil in each egg and turn/flip it in your hand until the inside is completely covered. get rid of any excessive oil. The easiest way to pour the oil inside the egg shell is to use a small funnel.
7. prepare the brownie batter.
8. put the chocolate and butter in a medium heatproof bowl and set over a pan simmering water, or melt in the microwave melt the chocolate and butter , stirring occasionally until smooth. remove from heat and set a side to cool.
9. In another medium bowl whisk together the eggs and suger at low-medium speed until combined.
10. whisk  the warm chocolate mixture into the egg mixture.
11. Stir in the flour, salt and cocoa powder with a wooden spoon until just combined.
12. Place the prepared egg shells into a cupcake tin. Use aluminum foil to help them stand upright.
13. load the batter into a piping bag fitted with a round tip. Make sure that the tip can fit the egg hole. If it can't expand poke the hole a little bit at a time until it fits. Fill your eggs about 3/4 full batter. This is the tricky part. If you underfill the eggs, you won't have a complete cake egg inside when you crack them after baking. If you overfill the eggs, cake will overflow out of the egg during baking. It looks ugly right after baking, just remove the excess cake and clean the shell with a damp towl. It is important to do this when the cake is still hot, when cold it is much harder to clean the shell.
14. bake the eggs at 350 degress for 15-20 minutes. let cool, crack and eat!
