FOOD: Smoothie Time

Smoothie Time
Some people are afraid of having a lot of things in their smoothies. I mean you don't think of spinach and kale in your smoothie. But despite how it sounds it honestly is really good when you mix together some fruits and vegetables. Now you can get the Green Machine from the Naked brand or you can recreate your own Green Machine but I wanted to give some basic recipes to start your smoothies. You can add or remove according to what you need or like.

Green Smoothie
I love making green smoothies. You really don't taste spinach or kale when you add other things that have sweetness in them. Here is my recipe for a green smoothie.
-       2 handfuls of spinach or half of a bag if you get the spinach in a small bag
-       1 banana
-       1 apple
-       ½ to 1 cup water or orange juice
-       1 tbsp. honey (opt)
Banana Milkshake
Sometimes I just want a tasty sweet smoothie. So here is my recipe for a vegan banana milk shake.
-       2 – 3 frozen bananas
-       ½-1 ½ cup dairy free milk (depends how thick you want) (I like using soy or almond milk)
-       1 tbsp. sugar (opt for extra sweetness)
-       1 vanilla bean or 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Mango Madness
I feel like everything is called mango madness when mango is involved but I love mango smoothies and so does my boyfriend. I literally only use 2 ingredients with some water for a liquid. I also sometimes add pineapple if we have it around but this is a perfect summer smoothie.
-       1 mango
-       1 banana
-       ½ - 1 cup water

I hope you recreate some of these smoothies and even tweak them to add your own twist on them. Tag me on my Facebook Page of any recreations you make! I would love to see your recipes!

Cheap Kawaii Clothes

Finding cheap kawaii fashion
If you know my you know my style ranges from bohemian hippie to goth to pastel princes. I have always loved the pastel and kawaii fashion but sometimes it is hard to find those special pieces to really define your style. Sometimes the cheapest way to have these items (that actually fit right) is to make it yourself. I love sewing clothes but not everyone knows how to sew. So I am going to tell you what I do to collect the cutest clothes.
Thrifting - Thrifting is one of my favorite things to do when trying to find clothes that fit my style for a cheap price. I even found an entire cosplay in one visit because there are so many different pieces you can get and put together and alter. Some thrift stores like Goodwill will organize by color which is great if you want a specific color, but the sizes are not in order which can be frustrating. Thrift store like savers will organize by size so you can easily go to your size section and scan the pieces for your desir…

Creatively Maree Art Challenge

I have mentioned on a couple of posts that I was working on a challenge for myself to just get better at drawing things. I feel like being in the graphic design field I didn't get to do a lot of drawing. I know I need to improve on drawing hands and detail as well as proportion so this is why I am putting together this challenge. If you wish to join me on my little journey, I will be posting the weekly theme every Monday on my social media pages (Mainly Facebook) as each week is from Monday Morning to Sunday Night. When or if you post on social media you can use the hash tag #creatively53 to make it easy to find everyone and we can converse about our art. Rules: There really aren’t a lot of rules really.

You have to include the theme in your drawing or drawings in some way. You must do at least one drawing for the theme but you can do even more if you would like to. I understand that some people have work and school and it is hard to keep up with challenges, which is why I gave a week …

TRAVEL: Universal Orlando

Everyone needs a nice long vacation once in a while. My boyfriend decided to surprise me with a trip to universal Orlando Florida. I have never been and really wanted to see the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and be the Hufflepuff that I am. 
I recently posted a blog about traveling and the basic tips I have to being organized. It helped out a lot to prepare for this trip since we were going to be staying for 4 nights, 5 days. If you haven't read thatclick hereto check it out!
I have bad anxiety when it comes to transportation and flying is the worst but I was just so tired from the flight being so early, that it didn't really affect me. We flew with southwest out of our small local airport and it was a nice flight. We actually ended up landing early which was pretty cool. 

So we stayed at Cabana Bay, which is the hotel in the park. It has the coolest 60s retro theme that I just adore. Anything that is vintage I am all about. There was so much in this hotel alone to keep guests …
