Chloe Scalloped Flats

Black-CHloe-flats

These Chloe flats have to be the most comfortable I’ve ever worn and considering I pretty much live in flats, that’s saying something! I can see now why they’ve become so insanely popular since they were first launched a few years ago, they’re just so comfy to wear and yet you still look put together when wearing them. They’re made from a buttery soft leather, come in lots of colors and the scalloped edges which is now synonymous with the brand add a subtle point of difference.

Addidas Gazelle Sneakers

Addidad-gazelle-style

I just got my first pair of Adidas Gazelle sneakers, I don’t know why I haven’t ever had a pair before because they are divine. Super comfy and they look awesome with some many things. Not just something that can be worn with activewear, these babies look great with skinny or boyfriend jeans, tailored or slightly draped pants and would work great to dress down a cute summer dress or skirt.

Valentine’s Day Picks

Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us and it made me realise just how fast this year is already going by! This day is sometimes hard to navigate, I don’t know whether I want to go all out and have dinner, drinks and get all dolled up or go super low key,order take out and where my jammies! I usually like to go somewhere in the middle, not too over the top, but do something a little special and different from any other night. Whatever it is we do, I try to have us disconnect from our electronic devices for the night (except for music) so that we can talk and relax. I love candles, so we could order take out but eat by candle light with some wine – then listen to some music – simple yet allows you to connect, which to me is what Valentine’s day is all about.

 

I’ve put together my V day picks that you’d no doubt love to receive any time of the year!

Meal In A Bowl Ideas

Honey-Chipolte-Chicken-Bowls

I love eating out of a bowl, might sound like a weird thing to love, but I do, pretty much every single meal I have at home, I have in a bowl (not my husband though, he’s a plate man!). I don’t really know why I’m so enamored with eating out of a bowl, but maybe it’s partly because I love how everything mixes so well in a bowl and how it sort of feels almost comforting to out of one, either way I’m a ‘bowl girl’ for life! Plus I guess the things I love to eat are pretty conducive to bowl eating, like stir fries, soup, salads etc

So anyway when I saw theses ideas for salads and lunch bowls , I just had to share them. Easy to make, you can add/delete ingredients to your taste and they can be as healthy or as indulgent as you like! Some ideas to mix up your weekly lunch/dinner rotations!

Beautiful Blush Dress

Topshop-crochet-trim-dress

While browsing through the Topshop website the other day (I call it internet window shopping) I fell in love with this blush dress. It’s the prefect feminine piece for the warmer months to come, but can be layered with a cardigan and tights for cooler nights as well. This dress could be so easily dressed up or down, with a cute pair of sandals and a clutch or booties and a crossbody. Plus the blush cloour could be paired with so many other colour combo’s that would make this dress so versatile and one that you could pull out for lots of occasions.

Prosciutto Wrapped Frittata Muffins

 

Prosciutto-wrapped-frittata-muffins

These frittata muffins are easy to make and are perfect for an easy dinner (just serve with a side salad) or a grab and go lunch! Packed with protein and veggies this is a healthy recipe that everyone will love!

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, plus extra for greasing
  • 1/2 finely chopped onions
  • 2 crushed garlic cloves
  • 6 swiss brown mushrooms
  • 1/4 red capsicum, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1 handful chopped baby spinach leaves
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • 10 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons nut milk or coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 12 slices prosciutto
  • 8 cherry tomatoes, cut into 5mm thick slices

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 175ºC/ 347 F. Grease a 12-hole muffin tin with a little coconut oil.
  • Melt the coconut oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add the onion & garlic and sauté for 2 minutes. Stir in the mushrooms and capsicum and sauté for a further 3 minutes, or until tender. Add the parsley and spinach and cook until the spinach is just wilted. Season with salt and pepper and transfer the cooked vegetables to a colander to drain off the excess liquid.
  • Crack the eggs into a large bowl and whisk with the nut or coconut milk and coconut flour. Season with salt and pepper, add the cooked vegetables and mix until well combined.
  • Line each muffin hole with 1 slice of prosciutto, covering the base and sides completely. Spoon in the frittata mixture until level with the rim of the tin. Top each muffin with 2 slices of cherry tomato.
  • Place the muffin tin in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the muffins have risen and a metal skewer inserted in the center of the muffin comes out clean and dry.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tin for 2 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely

Wishlist Wednesday

Audrey-Hepburn

I have always had a deep and abiding love for all things Audrey Hepburn. She was the reason why I fell in love with ballet flats, too many years ago to count and why I have always dreamed of owning a pair of Ferragamo’s one day!

Salvatore Ferragamo was one of the pioneers of fashion in Italy and his shoemaking genius saw him begin making shoes for hollywood stars for both on and off the set, in California from the 1920s. Besides making shoes for Audrey Hepburn he also designed shoes for Rita Hayworth, Sofia Loren, Ingrid Bergman, Ava Gardner, Katherine Hepburn, Marlene Dietrich, and Bette Davis and many more.

So for this Wishlist Wednesday I have a perfect pair of Ferragamo flats in a pale pink, which will never, ever go out of style!
