Olive's Best #8
It's hard to believe we are now in the middle of the coldest few months known to man. We hope to god it's a warmer winter this year! Either way, we are still driving around, ensuring you don't need to leave your house on a cold and blustering day!
With the next event in the calendar being Valentines day, we wanted to create a fun event for you beauties. We are offering a hair & makeup combo for $180. You'll be feeling fresh whether it's for your first date, a girl's night out or your 1000th date with your lover. We have a few spots left in the afternoon. Message us to book your spot.
On these freezing days, we like to have a warm and comforting breakfast to look forward to. Our favourite thing to make is banana pancakes! We have an easy recipe to follow, and a simple 'compote' to top the stack off just right.
2 bananas (frozen works best!) 3 eggs 1/4 cup oats
Blend together & pop into freezer until you're ready to cook them! Once ready to cook, we turn our grill to 350°, scoop with an ice-cream scoop. Once bubbling on top, flip & cook until golden brown. Berry Compote:
2 cups frozen berries Dash of cinnamon 1 tsp vanilla
Add to a saucepan on a low heat, stirring once in a while, let the berries boil down until thick like jam. Usually takes about 30 minutes. Once everything is ready, scoop on top of the pancakes & enjoy your warm breakfast!
An easy 'do' for those chilly winter days. (In reality, I think most of us are always looking for an easy 'do'!!) Here's a simple up-do anyone can whip up in 30 seconds. These are the steps we took:
Step 1: Brush hair, add any necessary dry shampoo & work through. Step 2: Gather all your hair near the nape of your neck, crossing over some top pieces to create texture. Step 3: Secure hair in a low ponytail, on the last loop - ensure you don't thread all of your hair through the elastic. Step 4: Divide pony 'ends' into two sections, bringing it up above the ponytail, tie in a knot. (IF your hair is long enough, tie again under the ponytail.) Step 5: Secure loose hair with a pin under the pony. Step 6: Adjust any fringe or loose hair. Pulling hair a little bit around your head, bringing out more texture. Step 7: Enjoy your perfect winter day without care!
Need some comforting music to get you through the winter blues? Here's a beautiful playlist with our favourite composers - bringing a moment of serenity every time we give them a listen.
