Agios Nikolaos

One month ago I went to Miramare Resort & Spa with my family where we spent 7 beautiful and relaxing days. We had this beautiful private villa just for ourselves which included 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, kitchen and a living room ofcourse. We had a beautiful view to Almyros beach and mountains. I felt like a celebrity because the staff brought champagne bottle, fruit basket and greek sweets just for us. I literally felt like I was in heaven! People in Agios Nikolaos were so nice and funny compared to people in Finland. I was so happy when a guy said to me and my sister that we looked beautiful. Weather in Agios Nikolaos was nice and warm and I really tried to absord the sun in me because I knew that when I arrive to Finland it will be cloudy. I was proud that I learned to eat cheese called feta in greek salad. Our villa was pretty high in the mountain so there were huge uphill roads and we learned that next time when we travel there we have to rent a car! I love to exercise so I didn't mind it but my grandmother is 70 years old so it was rough for her but she did it without complaining. One of the reasons why I love to travel is that you learn to appreciate self-evident things like for example when you go to bathroom in Greece you have to put the toilet paper into trashcan instead putting it straight to the toilet like we do in Finland because pipes are too small in Greece and I think that it is disgusting! I fell in love to Agios Nikolaos and I'm planning to travel there again when I hopefully graduate from high school this year!
Have you travelled this summer somewhere and if you have I would love to know where have you been?

My Nails Obsession

It's time to share the thing that I couldn't live a day without: my nails. As funny as it's sounds I really couldn't live without my nails without feeling naked. I started using acryl nails when I was in elementary school because my mother is a nail artist which means that I have used these for about 10 years. Many people are shocked when I tell them that these are my real nails because many people like to add height to their nails but I like to keep it natural. I wouldn't recommend to use acryl nails if you play for example volleyball because you have to be really careful with these so that they don't crack. My nails usually last for month because I'm so used to these but for some people they last 1-3 weeks. My friends always praise me and my sister's nails which is so lovely because it is a beautiful way to create art and my nails really do cheer me up. Summer is coming and I dare you to use bright and bold colours in your nails. This is a great way to express yourself and remember that they are the reflection of yourself!
I would love to hear from you, what is your favorite nail polish colour and how important your nails are to you? Have you ever used acryl nails?

Mango Pannacotta

It's time to share my new favorite dessert with you: Mango pannacotta! If you follow me on Instagram ( @jasminkolu ) or Snapchat, you probably know that I love to make food and desserts with my sister. My friends always praise our beautiful and delicious creations because we always make them with love. Summer is coming which is why I wanted to present this beautiful pannacotta. I promise that you will fall in love with this italian dessert!
Ingredients ( 5 portions):
  • 1 tin can of mango slices
  • 2dl mango or orange juice
  • 5 gelatine leaves
  • 2dl whipping cream
  • 1/2dl brown sugar
  • 1/2dl vanillla sugar
  • 1 can (200g) vanilla curd
  • Raspberries
  • Chocolate

Mash mango slices in blender so that it is smooth and so that there isn't any lumps. Mix mango mash and orange -/ mango juice together in a dish so that you will have it together about 3,5 decilitre. Put 3 gelatine leaves into a cold water for a moment. Then boil water in electric kettle and after it has boiled put 3 tablespoons of it to a small cup and squeeze water out of gelative leaves and put them in the cup and mix so it is nice and smooth. You will need something like for example muffin casserole so you can put yours cups horizontal position and put them on the fridge for 2 hours.

Now we are going to do pannacotta and the first thing is to put 2 gelatine leaves into a cold water. Then combine whipping cream, milk and brown sugar in pot and parboil it. Draw water out of gelatine leaves and put them in the pot so that they can melt and mix it. Then let it cool for 3 minutes and add vanilla sugar and vanilla curd. Then pour it to glasses from the fridge and let it cool in the fridge for 4 hours. When they have set, you can add for example chocolate and raspberries on top!

I hope you enjoy this beautiful dessert and I would love to hear if you try this and what did you like? What is your favorite dessert to make or eat?
