Have a good Sunday !

I wanted to try something new this week-end and almond milk came in my mind. I wanted to make my own for a while so I took the advantage of having anything but some almond powder left in my kitchen shelves to give it a try.
I wasn't sure about what to except and have been surprise to see how sweet and delicate it taste ! It matches perfectly with some orange flower water into a milk shake, and I used the pureed almond left from the almond milk filtered to make delicious and soft small cakes.

Meanwhile, here are the latest things that inspired me this week.

Hope you are all having a wonderful week-end !

P.S: I am taking part of my first fashion bloggeur contest tomorrow and I will need your help guys... stay tuned !
