Peanut Curry with Rice

Fall is coming! For me, the best thing about Fall is the oversized Sweater and curries. This one has the creaminess of coconut, the sweetness of peanut and a hint of spice from the curry paste. For 4-6 Portions Wie heißt das denn auf Deutsch?

Just a touch of color and freshness would be enough. I used the meteorites make-up from Guerlain. The light foundation with SPF (important!) and the very nice scented pearl powder. They are easy to apply, light on the skin and easy to remove as well. The packaging itself is very pretty. ❤ I will certainly re-use the packaging afterward. Win the KISS KISS Guerlain Lipstick by commenting on my recent Guerlain Instagram picture until October 6th 11am. For DE/AT/CH participants only. *in cooperation with flaconi.de

Before money existed, everyone had to exchange goods. I doubt that everyone has learned naturally to give. Giving means not expecting anything back, thus love is kind and giving. The difference is that when your love is not reciprocated, it hurts. The first step though is to learn how to love. Even after all this time, I don’t think I can love (perfectly), I neither know how nor sure that I have loved. I merely know that I was taught by my mom that the key to happiness is to give: to know that you are able to make someone happy, to put their needs with or even before yours. It doesn’t matter if you try to give with your time, money presence or effort. With this lesson I try to develop my giving to love. The one thing on earth I have …
