Going to sleep early is like a timemachine to breakfast. It’s that meal of the day where my inner fruitarian is over the moon, when creating a dreamy pink morning smoothie. Next on my morning to-do list is checking out Instagram – in search of people who share this love for the blessed gift called breakfast.
Stumbling upon Elektra’s Instagram, evoked a massive delay in my morning schedule on day. Everything on her sunshine brekky menu looks like food from heaven. I had a chat with this Greek babe & architecture student about how she can create pictures and recipes like a real kitchen Goddess.
Top 3 breakfast
Greek yoghurt with muesli or granola
Fresh fruit smoothies
Chocolate milks at Barnini
What is your morning routine music?
I actually just listen to Top 50 or radio Klara. It’s the radio station I always switch on, en route to Gent where I study.
Favourite city to rise and shine?
For holidays and relaxation I definitely pick Greece (home is where the heart is, right?)
and a on top of my wishlist is Japan
How does your morning routine look like?
On a schoolday:
I wake up at 6 AM, do the usual (brush my teeth and put basic make-up on) and then prepare a smoothie or yoghurt bowl on the go, so I can have it on the train.
In the weekend:
I love to sleep a little longer, usually till 10 AM. Then my morning routine consists of doing the basics and texting a friend to catch up in the city over a hot chocolate milk or coffee. At home I take time to have a little brekky, like boiled egg or yoghurt. Then I leave the house to Antwerp City.
How long does this routine take?
On a schoolday: 30 minutes
In the weekend: 2 hours
Do you prefer black coffee or milky cappucino’s?
No coffee for me! I am in love with hot chocolate!
Mozzarella or salmon!
Night time favourite?
Cocktails! They’re fresh and fruity and remind me of Summer, always.
And also, I have this thing with strawberry daiquiri’s.
Which Emoji can’t you live without?
The smiling monkey!
Favourite instagram filter?
I don’t use these! I prefer VSCO cam’s filters (f2)
If you could have a t-shirt printed, what would you put on it?
I actually searched for ages to find a cropped top with baby pineapples. Still haven’t found it. (tip: pm her with the golden tip)
Glitter or faux fur?
None of these! I do love silky skirts and actually looking for a faux fur jacket.
Favourite coffee table books?
Thinking Architecture or Quest Magazine!
