Women In “Men’s” Sports – #SuckerPunch

Hey crazy beasts,

For today’s post I’m bringing you a bit of controversy  – “Cause we need a little controversy,
‘Cause it feels so empty without me”, Eminem. – and we are talking about women in what traditionally would be considered a men’s sport. I for one am a huge fan o MMA and practice kickboxing and french boxing, what for some, including people in my own family, is looked upon as “not feminine” or “too violent for a girl”.

DIY Photo Frame/ Mood Board

Hey little beasts,

I got another DIY project for you guys today.

As you guys know from my previous DIY my decor has a very clean, metals – silver, copper & rose gold – on white, kind of theme, with that color scheme sometimes it can look a bit dull. With that in mind I try to use pictures and plants to bring some life into it.

I bought this huge frame to do a vanity mirror – which I still intend to do – but the frame proved to be too light to secure the mirror. As you can imagine I’m not one to throw money away so I started looking for alternatives. And these were some of my inspirations the result you will see at the end.

⇒Here is what I used to make my frame/board:

  • Frame ( cm x cm)
  • Twine
  • Spray paint
  • Glue gun
  • Clothing pins
  • Photos
  • Cards
  • Fake flowers
  • Fairy lights

I painted the twine and a few bites of the frame with a rose gold spray to give it a little edge. Next I just glued the ends of the strings to the frame and let it dry completely – I could have used nails to keep the strings in place buuuut I’m a lazy ass and my glue gun was oh so close and handy -. After that you just have to use your imagination and place your items however you feel like it. Et voilà.

This is the final result:

I hope you guys give it a go and show me your projects in the comments.

See you on the other side,

Vegan Burrito

Hey you crazy beasts,

How many of you love some warm and tasty burritos? I am completely obsessed. One of the reasons that contributed for my massive weight gain while living in the US was the amount of times I chowed down those delicious veggie burritos from Chipotle. I have friends that can atest to that. Since I came back home I search like a mad person for the perfect veggie burrito recipe. Even though I haven’t quite made it yet, I sense I’m pretty close to getting that oh so addicting flavor. So here you go, my “Close Enough Veggie Burrito” recipe.

⇒You will need:

  • tortilla wraps (what ever kind you fancy, I use either flower or corn)
  • ripe avocado
  • lime juice
  • bean mix
  • rice/bulgur mix

∴For the bean mix:

  • 1/2 onion
  • 1/2 red pepper
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil (or any other oil you prefer, like coconut oil)
  • 1 can of black  beans (400 gr)
  • 1/2 can of sweet corn
  • 2 tsp of chili powder
  • 2 tsp of mexican spices
  • salt
  • black pepper

∴For the rice/bulgur mix:

  • 1/4 onion
  • 3 tbsp olive oil (again or any other fat of you choosing)
  • salt
  • 1 bouillon cube (veggie)
  • 2 cups of rice
  • 1/2 cup of bulgur
  • 4 cups of water
  • grated carrots

This recipe will rend you around 6 to 8 servings. To me it only works for 6 because I eat on BEAST MODE.

I hope you enjoy it. Tell me in the comments if this recipe worked for you and what other suggestions you have for me as a foodie.

See you on the other side,

Katherine von Drachenberg – #WCW

Hey you lovely beasts,

Today I’m going to talk about the woman who made me want to get tattoos, the one and only Katherine von Drachenberg AKA Kat Von D.

I first got to know Kat’s work through Miami Ink, as most of her fans, I got mesmerized by her portrait skills and bad ass attitude. It was such an incredible work that I swore to my mom that my first tattoo would be made there – and I did it, but that’s a story for another day -. She showed me how tattooed girls can look hard and beautiful at the same time.

Kat went through a rough patch for a few years, but when she got sober her life turned around, and allied with her turning vegan, her whole life got a more positive vibe to it.

If you aren’t into tattoos, do not worry, Kat is far from being a one tricky pony, she has this amazing cruelty free/vegan makeup brand that will leave your jaw on the floor.

I have nothing but love and respect for her and her journey. Getting over an addiction an creating an empire at the same time is a show of immense strength and power that you can’t help but to want for yourself as well.

If you for some reason haven’t heard of Kat Von D, do yourself a favor and go look up her work, you won’t regret it.

So remember to spread the love, tag your friend or family member that inspires you, let them know you appreciate them. It’s all good karma!
