RECIPE: healthy strawberry ice cream

This Summer, I made it my mission to make good use of my ice cream maker. After whipping up some coconut coffee ice cream for The Daily Dose, I wanted to create something more fruity for round two. So when I spotted a batch of organic strawberries at the grocery store over the weekend, I knew that strawberry ice cream it was. A healthy version of course, because those are the perks of homemade things – you get to decide what goes in it. Turns out that 4 ingredients is all takes for a scoop of pink heaven aka healthy strawberry ice cream!

OUTFIT: miami pink

While it has currently cooled-down a bit, it’s been nothing but Summer vibes these past 2 weeks. With daily temperatures well above 30°C, at some point you just accept the fact that you’ll be sweating the second you step outside and that you’re better off wearing your hair in curls than trying to keep it straight. Even though 38°C was pushing it, I am so glad that the sun showed up daily this July. For those hot Summer days, I try to stick to light colors and as little make-up as possible. While I skip the eyeshadow, eyeliner and all other unnecessary products on my face, I do love a bit of color on my lips. Head on over to beautystories, where I recently shared my must-have lipstick for a pop of color during Summer, to find out what color I am wearing on my lips. And here is the outfit to go with it:

OUTFIT: carmen top

In reality, I should have called this post “Nina made me do it!”. After seeing this carmen top on both of my favorite Ninas (aka Nina Suess & Fashiioncarpet), I simply had to have it! Since it arrived last week, I’ve worn it at least 3 times and already know that it’ll be a true Summer favorite. Currently, I love everything that comes with an off-shoulder cut (ie. my Topshop dress), the blue and white stripes make it perfect for the season and the cut allows for lots of ice cream to be eaten. What else could one wish for?

INSTA 101: editing photos + filters I love

Over the years, one of the most frequently asked questions on my Instagram (@vickyheiler) has probably been “What filters do you use to edit your photos?”. While I try to be good about answering all your questions directly on the app, I thought it would be fun to put together a post of how I like to edit my Instagram photos, what apps I have and which filters I love to use. For me personally, there are plenty of accounts that I follow where I would LOVE to know how they edit their photos – Sincerely Jules being one of them. I love the look of her account but have never found the answer of what filters she uses. That being said, it is certainly no secret how I edit my photos and I am more than happy to share all the details with you .
