Golden Mondays!

Another Monday done which means it's officially 8 weeks till Christmas!!! Yes, I am super excited because, well it's the most wonderful time of the year. My love for navy blue seems to have grown rapidly the last few months which is why I come at you  in this laid back nearly all blue ensemble.

Reasons why you should love Stir Fry!

 I'll keep this short and straight to the point. With a simple cooking technique and little time comes some very tasty and healthy dishes. If you were to ask me what my favourite food is; my answer would most probably be Stir Fry and Sea Food. Why? Not only are they good for you; they are extremely delicious!
Stir Fry is usually a mixture different of types of vegetables; it also works well with meats and tofu. Chicken and beef are great examples of some of the meats I tend to use.

Once in a while!

No, you wouldn't normally catch me sashaying around with my hair tied up in two separate buns but you know what; today was that day. I woke up this morning and thought to myself, why the hell not! Besides, I feel the hair complements my rather laid back, grungy look. It's been a long week, oh wait it's only Tuesday? Now if that doesn't give you an idea of how my week is going, I don't know what will..

Blogging takes up a lot of time and dedication; I don't always have that much free time on my hands which is why I come forth with this late outfit post; one which is definitely a favourite. Flared Jeans scream 90s fashion but I'm bringing it back with a hint of Parisian

Baking is definitely one of my favourite hobbies! I used to bake a lot when I was 17 and then life happened, got in the way and I just didn't have time to do it anymore. But you know what, I'm back to baking in full force! Cakes, Brownies, Cupcakes, Pastries, Pies; you name it, I am doing it! Three days ago I baked a batch of Chocolate Brownies for a few friends in work. We've been taking turns the past few weeks and I must say it's pretty great getting to taste other people's baking.

Knee Highs!

 Ever since I got a pair of Chunky knee high boots, I seem to have completely forgotten about knee high socks which is why I decided to don a pair today! Out with new, in with the old! Now that I'm an avid fan of monochrome, it's kind of becoming a uniform; missing those bright colours like crazy!

Spiced Fish with Mixed Leaf Salad

Lunch is definitely a meal I never miss, in fact I have made it a rule to make sure that at least three meals are consumed a day. This is mainly because lunch re-energises your body and keeps your metabolism active. A healthy lunch should be able to provide you with a balance among these five food groups; grains, vegetables, dairy, fruits and lean proteins. For lunch today, I shallow fried a plaice fillet and served with mixed leaf salad, who said being healthy has to be a chore!
