Barbecue with friends – what you must have

Barbecue skewers

I really love to spend time with my friends, and really make something extra out of it. I was arranging a barbecue with some friends the past weekend, and I thought I’d tell you about it. Maybe you’ll get some tips to arrange a barbecue on your own

Quality time with friends

There is little that is as great as spending time with your best friends. As you know I am a foodie, so I always try to arrange something that can include food. Haha, I’m just like that! But a barbecue, I don’t know anyone that would say no to. It’s perfect both if you eat meat and if you don’t… Also, it’s very easy to make something in the case of other dietary restrictions, like allergies.

Everything can go on the grill. As you probably can tell, I looove a good barbecue. If you want some tips on things you can make for your barbecue, you can check that out HERE.

The variety of a barbecue is endless

What I absolutely love about having a barbecue, is the variety of it. You can literally make a completely different meal each time if you want to. Depending on which kind of ingredients you choose, your meal will be completely changed up. One of my favorite things to make is skewers.

Skewers can be with literally anything! Do you want a veggie skewer? Yum! Put on some mushroom, bell pepper and onion for example… So tasty! Another thing that is fantastic is corn! My friend actually puts canned corn with butter in it, directly on the grill. It’s sooo delicious.

Mix it up and find your favorites

Like I mentioned, skewers are my favorite. They are because I can make them different each time, depending on what I feel like. I’m not a vegetarian, but a lot of times I make veggie skewers. On the other hand, I love mixing and having skewers with chicken or meat as well. My secret trick is to make a homemade barbecue marinade. I always put the meat and mushrooms in it. It honestly makes a huge difference. And it’s no joke, I always get compliments for my food when I arrange a barbecue.

Make an event of it

When my friends or family come over to do a barbecue or any other meal… I love making an event of it. I always make sure my place is filled with music, fitting to the occasion. In addition, I love just putting up some string lights for example. Especially if we are meeting at night. It sets the mood right away!

If you’re not a fan of a good old barbecue (crazy!), or you just want to cook something else… You can check out another recipe HERE. I will for sure arrange more barbecues as long as the weather permits it. Hope you liked my tips and can use them to arrange something on your own.

Organize your wardrobe girl

Wardrobe

I’ve always cared about having a clean and organized place… Despite that, I must admit that my wardrobe has been one of the places I’ve kinda not prioritized. I honestly just organized it because I was bored. Haha! But after doing it, I’m not going back to unorganized anytime soon. 

Making your mornings more efficient

The first benefit of organizing my wardrobe is that I actually save a lot of time in the mornings. I honestly can say that I save at least 5 minutes, if not more… This I do because it’s just so easy to pick out an outfit. I can finally see what I have, and I know where to look if I have a certain piece in mind, that I want to wear.

One of the things that I personally feel like make me switch up what I’m wearing a bit more, is this coat stand. It’s standing in the middle of my room, so I always see it. On this coat stand, I always make sure to put pieces that I haven’t used in a little while…

In addition to that, I put pieces that I actually want to wear some more. It’s so much easier choosing those pieces when they’re right in front of me. I found a lot of pieces when I was organizing my wardrobe, that I haven’t used in forever… And those were donated so that someone that needs it more, can get them. Much better than having them lying around in my newly organized wardrobe.

Making it fun to organize your wardrobe

I have a little trick that I want to tell you about. This trick might actually make it a bit more fun to organize your wardrobe. The trick is to get some nice looking hangers! For some, the aesthetics don’t matter… And that is completely fine as well! But at least it made it a bit more fun for me. I’m easy to please, I just want pretty things. Haha!

Another thing you can do, depending on if you share your wardrobe with someone or not, is to use Marie Kondo’s trick. Lucky for me I’m not sharing my wardrobe with anyone. On the other hand, a lot of us do, and if you’re one of those I really would advise you to watch the videos of Marie Kondo. She has a lot of smart tricks when it comes to organizing and cleaning.

Doing it little by little, to make your life easier

I must admit that having an organized home makes me a lot more relaxed than if it’s messy. If you want some tricks on how you can handle everyday stress you can read about that HERE. I kind of regret not organizing my wardrobe before. It was really easy, and it simply made my life easier. The next thing I’ll do is try to organize my makeup drawer… That might be a bit harder than what I just did. Hehe, wish me good luck on that one!
