A Whole Foods Market have recently opened a shop a bit closer to where I live, so I no longer have to go all they way into centre of London to get my Whole Foods shopping fix, which is great for me, but maybe not so great for my wallet to have one closer!
Now I will say that I wish that they would have more of the amazing products that they have in the american stores, I am still dreaming of Justin's nut butters, but I suppose there goes a lot of work into bringing a product over to the UK.
But here are some of the things I go to Whole Foods for. I did also pick up a few other things on this trip, like oranges and coconut water, but those you can get from any supermarket now a days, so didn't include them.

As I wrote about, in a post last month, click to read Here, I am going to try and be a bit more eco friendly in the month of March.
So for my first week of challenging myself to be a bit more eco friendly, I am going to:
- Buying organic and fairtrade
- No food wastage

So pancake day is only a few days away, so I thought I would share with you my spelt pancake recipe. For anyone who doesn't know what spelt is, is a different grain than wheat, but in the same family. It is an older type of grain, that has a bit more of a nutty undertone and some people find it easier to digest than wheat flour.
These thin and delicious beauties are so yummy and not really that bad for you with the right filling.
For this pancake day, I have filled mine with sliced bananas and a little of my refined sugar free chocolate syrup, click Here to see recipe.

I invented this recipe a few years ago, as my husband really likes his chocolate milk, but reading on the back of ready made chocolate milk I found them to be filled with a lot of sugar and other not so good for you things. So I looked on the internet to figure out how to make my own chocolate milk and the easies way it seems, was by using a chocolate syrup. So I started experimenting with some recipes, to make one without white sugar and this is the end result.
My husband loves this syrup, he actually says it taste a lot like his favourite chocolate milk when added in milk. But it can also be used on other things, like on ice cream, desserts or even a teaspoon in coffee to make a mochaccino.

I really like these ready-to-go art coats for when you are in a hurry, as you can literally have cool looking nails in 10 minutes before you have to be out the door for an event.
I Picked up a pack in the Kiko store after having looked at them online. I thought I had picked up the 03 Taupe lace, but actually I had picked up 302 Lace Cover by mistake. So when applying them, I realised they were transparent. Downside of this is that you have to use it with a nail polish as a background (tried it without, doesn't look great), but upside is that you can choose any background for the lace affect, making it match to any outfit. I paired it with the Kiko polish in 303 Beige Chrome, which makes it a perfect parring with a simple black dress I think.

Being Danish living in the UK, I am actually quite lucky that I get more holidays to celebrate as Denmark and the UK don't have all the same holidays, but I quite often forget. For instance in Denmark we have a day where we eat duck/goose, called Saint Mortens eve and a day where we eat a bun/roll called a Hvede, called big Hvede day.
Where as here in England there is pancake day, St. George day and Halloween.
The Danes have however started taking on Halloween, though it wasn't around when I was young. We do have another very old traditional holiday where kids dress up, called Fastelavn, normally celebrated around February. Going back to the origin of this holiday, it was to celebrate the beginning of the fast, that would then end with easter celebrations.
