Simple Red and Blue Berries Sorbet Recipe

Sometimes eating healthy for some of us is not an easy task for a varieties reasons. One of the main reasons is that some of us lack of creativity when is time to cook a healthy meal.

While transitioning to a more healthy lifestyle I discovered that there are tons of fun ways to implement fruits and vegetables to your daily life without feeling that you are eating air (some people literally feel this way when they are eating vegetables).

 A couple days a go I did a delicious sorbet mixing a bunch of differents berries. It took about 10 minutes to do and I was so impressed with the result and it was so delicious that I need it to share it with you guys. I have to clarify and say that they are different ways to do a fruit sorbet, so to all the real chefs, out there don't get offended.

So here we go...

Travel Diary: Marseille

After a year of hard work, I finally was able to do a little escapade to  Marseille in the South of France. This wasn't my first time in this lovely city, but it was the first time where I got to actually explore the streets of Marseille.  I'm always walking with my camera and when I'm in a place that is so rich culturally I cannot resist of doing a little of street photography. 

Marseille is the second city of France that for me epitomize the Mediterranean lifestyle. It has so much cultural diversity that each single street offers a different story of its inhabitants.

The Perfect Invitations for a Special Event


Recently I've been so caught-up with work and life in general that I basically been neglecting all my friends. Not on purpose, but I didn't have time lately to see them, not even for a quick coffee.  I treat my friends like family and for me is really important to nurture those relationships constantly. So I decided that it was time to do a nice gathering that we can all enjoy. I was thinking on doing a little get to together to enjoy the last days of summer here in Paris. One thing that I love doing here is picnics. In Paris not even during summer, we have good weather so every time that there is an empty blue sky everybody is near the Seine river or the Canal St. Martin eating cheese and drinking wine. (It sounds cliché but is literally the truth).

I wanted to do something out of the ordinary, let say that I didn't want to send the typical text saying are you free this Sunday for a picnic? 

Lucky for me, recently I partner with Paperless Post to try out their online invitations for my next event. I couldn't say no to this opportunity because it was the perfect way to get motivated to actually organize something like an adult (or more like a highly successful PR business women) for my beloved friends.  
Checking their website I was super impressed with the variety of choices of invitations that they have. Each one divided into different sections like Wedding, Birthdays, Parties and Entertaining etc. which make everything so much easier to browse. But what I really like is the art and design of the templates of each card. So well curated that I basically had an ADHD moment looking through all the invitations. It took me a while until I was able to choose one. I was so indecisive, too many beautiful choices (People that have ADHD like me can relate to this). Also if you are feeling super creative you can actually do your own invites from scratch. But this time I choose one of their own design and customized it to my own needs. Here is the final result. What do you guys think? 

I choose this one because of the watercolors and the ice creams that make it look very summery. By the way, the cards are animated, I had an Awww moment went I saw that. 



I look forward to planning my next gathering just only to send one of their beautiful print invites by mail. Did I mention they do paper invitations? Well, now you know.
