Boston Calling x Red Bull ♡

IMG_4621.JPG

Recently, I had the opportunity to attend The Boston Calling Music Festival, Red Bull is a sponsor of Boston Calling and I was lucky enough to get a sponsor from Red Bull to attend this amazing music festival. Woo.

IMG_4627.JPG

I don’t know if you know but Red Bull is really involved with music, they have their own Music Academy (which they will be announcing and opening applications for soon, so apply if you can, I had the opportunity to check out the Music Academy they had in Montreal last year and it was beyond incredible. For more info about the Academy check out my blog post about it here). The RBMA is a dream for any musician, vocalist, songwriter so if you have the opportunity to apply for it DO IT!

Honestly, I don’t know if you realize this, but Red Bull is everywhere supporting music. Recently, Red Bull sponsored Together Music Festival in Cambridge. Red Bull Music Academy also recently had really cool music events in New York, that I was unable attend 😦 They had Solange there and I was so upset I couldn’t go!! I know I know, but I will definitely be attending future Red Bull Music Academy events.

PS. I know  I have mentioned this in my other blog posts but, as you can tell the Orange Edition is my favorite flavor. 

 

IMG_4624.JPG

Boston Calling had such an amazing lineup and amazing food!! I didn’t really take too many photos of the food but here is a awkward photo of me before I devoured that hamburger. I am telling you guys, Tasty Burger is a gift from heaven. 

IMG_4644.jpg

My favorite show by far was Cage The Elephant, oh my gosh. They killed it. Amazing music and amazing energy on stage. I loved the energy they brought, every single person in the crowd was so engaged and so happy. I love that music does that, everyone came together to one place no matter their culture and beliefs and just enjoyed music among one another. We were all one. That is the power of love and music.

Thank you so much Red Bull for sponsoring my day at Boston Calling. I am looking forward to attending future events with Red Bull.

 

With so much love,

A lovely friend of mine Bella Christopherson and her sister Eva Christopherson  make handmade jewelry and they recently opened a store on Etsy called SunChildSoul. When I saw their products I instantly fell in love. After closely looking at the products I realized that each stone and crystal carried a different meaning/energy to them.

Here are a few of my favorite pieces from their store!

Japanese Cake Recipe ♡

12528666_1087678254621705_1253710452_o

 

My blog Cultura Giusta turned One January 9th!! So I thought I would share a family cake recipe with everyone to celebrate… wooo yum yum

 

This is a traditional family recipe from my mom’s side so I guess you can say it is a little Japanese influenced. This cake is very light and not too sugary! It is delicious!!!

So keep reading if you would like the recipe!

Things you will need-

Eggs (4)

Flour (100g)

Sugar (120g) & (3 tbsp)

Vanilla Extract (1 tbsp)

Milk (1 tbsp)

Raspberry Jam (Around 3 tbsp)

Heavy Whipped Cream (8 oz)

First Step- Crack four eggs into a bowl, mix with 1/3  out of the 120g of sugar (do this three times until the sugar is finished). Mix until the eggs and sugar turns thick and into a  light yellow/almost white color.

Second Step- Pour 1tbsp of vanilla extract into the bowl.

Third Step- Pour flour into the same bowl using a sifter. Then mix with a silicone head spatula until all the flour is mixed in!

Fourth Step- pour into two pans round pans evenly. Set Oven 375 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for 10-15 minutes until the middle of the cake is dry.

Fifth Step- While you are waiting for the sponge of the cake to bake you can start preparing the whipped cream. Pour 8 oz of whipped cream in a bowl and 3 tbsp of sugar. Mix until the heavy whipped cream become fluffy and turns into whipped cream.

Sixth Step- Next when the Sponge of cake is ready take them out of them pan and spread whipped cream all over one of the sponges then in between spread the raspberry jam inside. We usually do not measure this part but we estimated it to be around 3tbsp… You can add however much you’d like!

Seventh Step- Stack the two sponge cakes together and whipped cream all over using a silicon head spatula! Sprinkle some fruits this time I decided to add blueberries only but you can also put strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, whatever you’d like!!

TA-DA and the cake is ready! Enjoy!

 

With so much love,
