Colour Blocking with OVER-SIZED Blazers

Hi Everyone!

If you are familiar with my blog or my sense of style you will know that I am a sucker for anything got to do with the word BLAZER. 

Over-sized – Tailored – Floral – Bright

I LOVE THEM ALL!

Today’s post is about how I style them.

A simple pair of black pants or jeans are always a perfect match when you are wearing a STATEMENT piece . I am wearing a checkered shirt because I was feeling spontaneous but I would usually wear a simple black/grey/white top. The whole point of colour blocking is to wear bright coloured things at the same time and I have done this with my hot pink necklace.

I would say these outfits are casual or semi-formal. Trade the shoulder bag for a purse/clutch and the checkered shirt for a peplum or, like I said earlier, a black shirt.

You can get an over-sized blazer from most places like ASOS and Boohoo as it currently on trend. Both of the blazers that I am wearing are from an Op Shop.

Nicoise Salad (Tuna, Eggs & Green Beans) – DAY 5

Hi everyone,
This is the end of the cycle for the daily salad posts. I am going to end this series with a BANG! The final salad is my favorite over the past couple days. My aim for these post were to show that you can make anything with what you have, where you are.

Most of the ingredients that I used were the ones I had at home, I did not specifically go shopping for these salad at all. Like me you will most likely have these ingredients at home. Even if you don’t  you can simply just substitute it with what you do have.

Salads are an effortless way to minimize calories at a meal, and maximize nutrients. As it is currently Summer in Australia, it is easy to turn salads from a side dish into a complete meal by just adding a protein such as chicken, meat or eggs.

If you would like to see a series of anything else please do not hesitate to ask, I am more than welcome to share recipes and pictures.

IMG_2210-0.JPGINGREDIENTS:

A bunch of green beans(Boiled)

1 small potato (Boiled)

1 can of tuna (preferably in oil as it adds to the dressing)

2 eggs (You can either boil or pouch. I like my eggs runny but you can cook it to the way that you like.)

Olives (Preferably Kalamata olives)

Salt

Lemon juice

This one of the easiest salad that ever exist. Once again this is my sisters recipe, she will kill me if I did not mention that. You are probably sick and tired of reading the same thing, so I am going to say it one last time: SALADS ARE THE BEST!

We usually make this salad on the side of Chicken Parmigiana or Steak with potatoes as well. If you are allergic or do not like pistachios you can just leave them out of course.

Warm Spaghetti, Prawn and Basil Salad – DAY 3

Hi Everyone!

This is the continuation of the post I published a few days ago which was Rocket, Pear & Cheese Salad –  DAY 1. Like mentioned I am going to show you an easy salad recipe to create at home every day this week.

This is my sisters recipe and she will kill me if I took credit for it. This salad can we made all year round but I enjoy having it during a warm Summers day.  If you are vegetarian or do not like seafood, you can substitute the prawns for tomatoes.  The sharpness from the Parmesan cheese adds an amazing flavour but you can leave it out if you do not like it.

INGREDIENTS:

(Salad)

Spaghetti

Prawns

A bunch of Basil

1 Spanish Onion

Parmesan Cheese

INGREDIENTS:

(Dressing)

Chilli Flakes

Juice of a whole lemon

Rocket, Pear & Cheese Salad – DAY 1

Hi everyone!

Can we just we just talk about how awesome salads are? You can basically make a salad with anything and everything. They are so light, refreshing and suppress hunger at the same time. Salad are so easy to make, only use a few ingredients and suitable for all occasions.

When I went to my friends house last week, she made this amazing salad. So I decided to recreate it for my blog. Likewise, I am going to publish a post everyday about a new and easy salad to create. I will include the list of ingredients for the salad, the dressing and photos of my creation.

2015/01/img_5674.jpg

INGREDIENTS:

(Salad)

Rocket lettuce (Use as much as you want, I used a whole packet from the supermarket and it served two)

1 Pear (It is better to have a pear which is firm as it would not get mushed when you are mixing the salad)

Tasty Cheese (You can use any cheese you would like, Parmesan cheese will taste amazing)

INGREDIENTS:

(Dressing)

Olive Oil

Pomegranate Molasses (You can probably find this in the Middle Eastern aisle at the supermarket. It has a sour taste so add as much or little as you want)

Salt

And Voilà!2015/01/img_5677.jpg

Basic Zucchini Spaghetti & Tomato Topping – Recipe

Hi everyone!

If you have read one of my more recent post it was about my New Year’s “Revolution”. One of the very few goals I had set for my self was to IMPROVE MY HEALTH. This means to increase my physical activity and consume a balanced diet. As I was browsing Instagram I saw a photo of Zucchini Spaghetti. This inspired me to create my own recipe. This is a basic recipe and you can add or change it as you like.  I used a large zucchini/courgette to make two servings on the pasta. This recipe requires minimal ingredients and takes a only 10 minutes to prepare.

10872147_847677831958987_1038169512_n

INGREDIENTS

1 Large zucchini/courgette

1 can of diced tomatoes

2 garlic gloves

Salt

Black Pepper

Parmesan cheese (option)

METHOD:

  1. There is an utensil that cuts the zucchini but because I do not have it, I used a peeler to make thin pieces of the zuccchini and then I cut them into thin spaghetti sized strips.
  2. Boil the zucchini in hot water for 2 minutes.
  3. Put one can of diced tomatoes in a pot and start to heat them. Add garlic, onion or both into the mixture.
  4. Season to taste.
  5. Serve the sauce onto of the zucchini like bolognese sauce.

And Voilà!
