Autumn has arrived and so has another post about makeup. During autumn people tend to choose darker colours for their outfits but we advise you to do the opposite - even the smallest colourful detail will do - scarf, gloves, hat, shoes, some sort of an interesting detail, for example, a brooch that's attached to your coat, and most definitely makeup - and you'll stand out in a crowd. In a way every colour has its own use, one lets out your creativity but another improves your mood.

This time I collaborated with two lovely gals who helped me bring this blog post to you guys. The makeup and hair was done by Paula Timermane (Make up, hair style artist Paula Timermane) who is not only fast but also very precise. Paula and I got along great which allowed us to combine our ideas to achieve the perfect result, thanks in part to Paula's great deal of knowledge as well as her large collection of cosmetics. 
The pictures were taken by Ieva Zeltiņa (Ieva Zeltina photography). This was the first time I had ever met Ieva but we instantly found common ground, which is an integral part of working together with other people. It's even more important to achieve a result that both parties like, even more so if the shoot itself takes approximately 20 minutes as it was in this case. Ieva was both efficient and professional which meant that pictures were done in no time. You can check out even more of her pictures by pressing on this link.

Homemade Apple and Cinnamon Toasties | Lattitude Blog

Autumn is the one true season for harvesting apples. More often than not you have so many of them that you run out of ideas of what to do with them so that those round, tasty, juicy, red, green or yellow treats don't go to waste. 
Fried apples, juice,  cakes, compote, jams... These are just a few of the things you can make from apples, however, most of them take quite a while to make. That is why we'll teach you a quick and simple recipe for your sweet tooth, and it doesn't cost that much to make! 
I myself am not a fan of apple cakes, as they seem like a nuisance rather than an integral part of the cake, but it is not the case in what we're about to teach you how to make, it's truly astonishingly tasty. 

What you'll need?

  • Apples;
  • Toast;
  • Butter;
  • Sour cream;
  • Sugar;
  • Cinnamon;
  • Baking paper;
  • Baking oven pan.

Step by step:

Turn on the oven so that it starts heating up. 200 Celsius / 400 Fahrenheit should be fine.
2) Check how many slices of toast fit on your pan and spread butter onto every one of them in a thin layer.
3) Peal the apples.
4) Cut the apples in thin slices.

5) Place the apple slices onto the toast close next to each other and so that one covers the other a little bit.

6) Sprinkle sugar on top of the apple slices. Make sure to add the sugar in accordance with how sweet or sour your apples are.
7) Place the pan in the over.

8) While you wait for the apple slices to turn brown you can get the sour cream ready for the next step. We would recommend that you use the entire package of the sour cream. The more sour cream you'll put on your toast the tastier they'll be. To make the sour cream melt more gradually add some sugar to it (two tablespoons should be fine but check to see if you'd like it to be sweeter), stir it in.
9) Check on your toast once in a while. When the apples have become slightly brown take the pan out of the oven.
10) After you've taken the plate out of the oven pour the mixture of sour cream and sugar over the apple slices. Spread the mixture over the apple slices with a spoon to cover them in their entirety.

11) Place the pan back in the oven for a few minutes.
12) Sprinkle some cinnamon (or grated chocolate) over the apple and sour cream covered toast before putting the pan back in the oven or after they are done.

13) Put on the kettle and make some tea for the perfect combination.
14) Bon apetit! Easy! Tasty! And the entire kitchen smells like cinnamon and toast!
