The Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide

This year I really wanted to make a gift guide (on time). The run-up to Christmas is one of my favourite times of the year. And I'm talking about the build-up of excitement (both young and old), and everyone running around to find the perfect gifts for their loved ones. Gifts are only a small part of Christmas, but everyone loves to spoil and be spoiled, am I right? Receiving a gift is fun, but finding the perfect gift is even better! I've put together a gift guide of things I think would make some girls and women very happy. There's more expensive gifts and also more affordable ones, depending on your budget. Let's go!

Dear London

While my blog used to be almost all about London, it's unfortunately not possible to keep that up when you no longer live there. Do you also miss London on whiskers & lions? The reviews, the food, the city..? Good! Because in a few weeks I'll be visiting my second home again, and I'll take you along with me. I still think about this city every day, it's crazy how you can get attached to places. I'm already even missing some things about Amsterdam and I've barely left the place! It's been less than 5 months since I said goodbye to my flat, friends and London lifestyle, so I couldn't be happier to go back, even if it's only a few days. I can't wait!

Sticky banana oats

Oatmeal is the perfect winter breakfast. It's warm, comforting and will keep you going for hours (..or at least until lunch). But eating oats every single day might get a bit boring, which is why I came up with this recipe - to change things up. I've eaten my oats with sliced banana before, but decided it would be even better with sticky, warm and cinnamon-y banana. It looks really indulgent and it tastes like a dessert, but it's pretty much guilt-free!

Fall beauty favourites

A few beauty bits and bobs have snuck their way into my drawer the past few weeks so I thought I'd share with you my favourite ones. It's getting close to winter so it's time to change things up a bit with new colours and scents. Most of these are real budget gems; who doesn't love a good bargain?


One day in Buenos Aires

Rather than making an individual review of places, I thought I'd share a picture diary of a day in Buenos Aires. We did quite a lot of things that Saturday so I can show you a few hotspots and places to see in this city. In the morning we visited a thing or two, then I went for a pilates class (gotta stay fit on holiday), after lunch we walked around some more to see some landmarks and in the evening we had dinner and drinks in Palermo. Full day which means tons of photos!

Amsterdam gym + new routine?

The last time I wrote a workout post was in September, so it was about time that changed. I have some bits and bobs to share with you, including a gym recommendation in Amsterdam, a new routine I'm trying and some new work-out songs.

Festive winter granola

So it had been a while since I had made granola, until my sister insisted I'd make some for her last week. And now I'm hooked again! Homemade granola is easy to make and the perfect addition to yoghurt (Turkish yoghurt is my favourite at the moment), a smoothie bowl or just with a bit of milk. This morning I decided to give a little festive twist to my granola, after all, it's only 40 days till Christmas!

Ninina Bakery | Palermo, Buenos Aires

Last Sunday in Buenos Aires we went over to Palermo, which is kind of like the Soho of B.A. It's filled with small shops and cosy café's and you can literally walk around for hours discovering new things. It was an incredibly warm day so we decided to have lunch at Ninina Bakery in Palermo. (ignore the quality of the pictures, I didn't carry my camera around in the city so it's only iPhone pics I can show you)

New season: Adidas || Nike

What better workout motivation than some brand spanking new workout clothes?  It's a new season so time to leave those neon shorts in the closet and bring out the trackpants and stylish sweaters. I've selected my favourite items from my two favourite sports brands: Adidas (and as always the Stella McCartney's collection) and Nike. This winter I'm craving all-red sneakers, Christmassy tights and a warm jumper.

I'm back!

Took a little blogging break between the last weeks of my internship in Amsterdam and traveling to Argentina and Chile! But now I'll be in Belgium for a while so I will definitely have more time to blog, I've missed it! Please leave in the comments anything you'd like to see on whiskers & lions, I'd love to hear your feedback! Let's get blogging :)

Just wanted to share a picture of Buenos Aires, where it was around 29 degrees in the sun so a really lovely boost before returning back to winter. I will share a few hotspots in this city too so stay tuned!
