Hello lovely The Coyote Thistle readers! My name is Alyssa and I blog over on Sincerely Truly Scrumptious. I was so excited and honored when Annie contacted me and of course I jumped at the chance to do a guest post. My blog features style/fashion/outfits, DIY’s, hair, beauty, tutorials and much more. I thought this was the perfect opportunity to feature one of my go to outfits and hair styles for the summer. Here you go!
Tom Odell is a british singer-songwriter. His debut album entitled ‘Long Way Down’ is due to drop next month on June 24th. He was discovered by fellow british musician Lily Allen and signed to In the Name Of. Earlier this year he won the BRITs Critics Choice award. His studio tracks might be a little over produced but there remains a raw energy which I can’t get enough of. Definitely awaiting the drop of his album.

This salad is great as a side dish or to add to other salads. I sometimes cut up asparagus and throw it in as well. It tops a couscous or rice perfectly.
2 ears corn or 1 can corn
2 handfuls of cherry tomatoes
4 cloves of garlic
1 yellow onion
3 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper
Cut kernels off corn cob or use 1 can of corn drained. Cut cherry tomatoes vertically, chop onion, and mince garlic. Toss with olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Spread mixture on a baking pan and bake on 350 for 30-45 minutes until the salad starts to brown.
Succulents are a great addition to any decor. They offer a modern look with very little maintenance. I created a little center piece with a couple small succulents that were given to me. It’s nothing fancy or over the top, but the center piece is exactly what I had been looking for to finish off my table. I had always considered succulents to be ugly, cold, and basically the opposite of what a plant is supposed to be. After some time I’ve grown to like them. My creation is simple but I’ve seen some beautiful more complex arrangements. If you do decide to create your own arrangement, let your creativity shine. Basic upkeep for succulents is to keep their soil moist during hot times of year, but don’t let them sit in water as their roots will rot. During cold weather, water once every couple of months.
Today’s blogger is a master DIY project maker. She has an adorable etsy shop where she showcases and sells her DIY endeavors. Meet Anouck Plume. Instead of giving her an elaborate introduction, I’ll let her introduce herself in her guest post below. By the way, how beautiful is her photography?
Hi, my name is Anouck. I am the owner of the Anouck Plume blog and etsy shop. My blog is about the things that inspire me, the things I do and the things I make.
I started my blog because I finished school. That may sound a bit silly, but since I hadn’t any homework assignments anymore I noticed I did way less creative stuff. I seem to work good, and make awesome things when I’m under pressure. So I needed a platform where I could share the things I made, and something that would give me a reason to make things again. For me, it was the best idea ever. I felt like myself again and my creative ideas started to flow again.
My Etsy shop was a thing that grew out of my blog. Because I did so many DIY’s I had a little bit too much stuff that I couldn’t use all myself. So I thought, why not sell it! I’m not selling that much yet, but it’s just enough to buy new materials to keep making pretty things! It’s the best thing I ever started! I dream of having a big and professional webshop one day, but untill that day I’ll be happy with my little Etsy shop.
I bought Wake Owl’s EP “Wild Country” yesterday and have listened to it about 4 times on a loop. Its a great listen. I’m hoping they’ll drop an LP sometime in the not too distant future. If you like the sound of their song ‘Wild Country’, I highly recommend the EP.
For a few months now I’ve been wanting to make waffles. The big issue with this is that I didn’t have a waffle maker. Luckily, my boyfriend’s mom lent me her waffle maker. Get excited because the next few weeks will be full of yummy waffle recipes!
What you’ll Need:
1 cup Almond Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
2 tablespoons White Sugar
2 tablespoons Ground Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Heat up waffle maker while combining dry ingredients. Mix well, adding egg and vanilla extract. Once mixture is thoroughly mixed, spray waffle maker with a nonstick cooking spray. Pour batter into waffle iron and let cook until brown. These waffles don’t have the waffle texture that you expect but they taste delicious! To substitute for maple syrup, add some powdered sugar and a little bit of melted butter on top of the waffle.
