Summer Love

Happy Sunday, Lovies! 
I discovered a really cool new spot, providing a bird view of the city. I figured this background would be perfect for my first official Summer inspo outfit. 

I’m totally obsessed with this colorful jumpsuit from H&M! The material is light and has a silky feel to it. All it takes to style is some sparkly shoes and a whole bunch of gypsy bracelets. What more do you need for a lazy vacation?! The only I can complain about is they need to come up with more design prints of the same exact thing and I’ll buy them all! The positive thing- they are currently stoked up in most H&M locations worldwide! Hurry up and get yours, it’s a must for the upcoming summer!  ❤️

Bacon cheeseburger *quick and easy* 

Happy Sunday, Lovies! 
Today is my cheat day so I’m going to use the opportunity to share my favorite cheeseburger recipe! It’s not your traditional cheeseburger so pay attention to the instructions. 
Ingredients: 
1lbs ground beef (or a 60-40% mix) 

1 egg 

2 tea spoons: salt, black and red pepper, garlic powder and v.oil

200 g Camembert cheese 

1 tomato (sliced) 

Smoked Danish style onion up to taste

Bacon packet 

Fresh lettuce 

French fries (frozen or homemade) 
Directions:
In a large bowl, add the meat, egg and all the spices together and mix well. 

Form “chunky” burger patties: 

Now the tricky part: 

Remove a little bit of meat from the top of the patty and place a chunky slice of Camembert cheese. Be sure the patty remains whole on the bottom (otherwise your cheesy goodness will leak out during cooking)! 

Form your patty again, adding the extra meat we removed earlier:

I’m not going to waste time, explaining how to prepare bacon, so we are skipping this step. I like using the grease from it to prepare the patties tho! 

In a medium sized fry pan, place the patties and set to medium heat. Flip them every 3-5 minutes until the sides are fully cooked:

I personally like to arrange my burgers in the following way: lettuce, tomato slice, meat patty, bacon, topped off with Danish style onion. Best burger buns?- toasted whole grain! 

You can use the same recipe without egg or grill instead of frying the patties. It’s a different style burger that’s not hard to make as you can see. Every bite melts in your mouth and the flavors blend in perfectly! 

 I guarantee you will be the talk of every cookout this summer! 

With Love, Silvia Mèlange 

Blue Summer *post beach*

Happy Wednesday, Lovies! 
Considering the Spring-ish temperatures in most of Europe, I’m happy to announce I am currently soaking vitamin D like a boss! 

The secret I’ve been teasing you about is actually pretty major and although it’s a positive thing, it’s also very overwhelming. I got the opportunity to chill by the beach for the next 24 hours. God knows I needed some time away to meditate and recharge my batteries and if you a loyal follower, you know I prefer doing that by the water! 

After a day of being hypnotized by water, I decided to take a few snaps of myself with a tripod. It’s not my best work but considering I don’t usually take pictures by myself, I think I did a good job!  ☺️

I love how peaceful my face is here as the second pic was the first one taken. Meditation, self reflection and quiet time are very important for one’s mental state. 

My Super Hero pose 😂😂


I’m wearing a handmade dress from a local Indian market. It’s one of my favorite beach pieces as it can be worn as a dress or as a skirt. I have the same one in white and red and I actually regret not getting a few other colors combos.  
Tomorrow will be a day off-off social media that is.  I believe it’s really important to spend some time in nature, away from technology and social media. I’m kind of excited right now but I know I’ll be itching to check my instagram or Snapchat something cool by lunch time 😂 
I hope you are all enjoying your day and only focus on the good vibes!

Fajitas De Pollo/ Chicken Fajitas

¡Feliz Cinco De Mayo! 

I don’t know about you but I’m a huge fan of Tex-Mex food! I haven’t gotten the chance to visit Mexico yet, but I’ve had Mexican friends cook authentic for me so I know the difference between the two.

In spirit of today’s celebrations, I’ll share my favorite fajitas de pollo recipe: 

Ingredients: 

1lbs chicken breast (skinless) 

For the chicken marinate (2-24h prior to cooking): 

2 ts fresh lemon juice + virgin oil

2 garlic cloves (minced)

1/2 ts: salt, black pepper, ground cumin, chilly powder and sliced jalapeño, chopped cilantro 
Other ingredients:

2-3 green + red peppers (long cut)

2 onions (sliced) 

4-6 tortillas (I prefer whole grain)

Nothing more appetizing than raw chicken 🤘🏼

Directions: 
Cut the chicken in strips and place it in marinate, refrigerating  for 2 to 24 h prior to cooking. 

Place the chicken and left over marinate in a medium sized frypan set on medium heat. When the meat whitens, add the veggies into the mix. 

Keep an eye on it, stirring every 2-3 minutes for about half an hour.

Eventually, your food should start looking something like this: 

Warm up your tortillas, crack open a Corona and kick back! 

When you think about it, someone being able to make chicken fajitas is a pretty impressive thing. As you see it’s not hard at all! 

¡Salud!
