    Flat shoes for the festive season

    One thing I LOVE about the festive season is how everybody seems to come together and agree that this is the season you make a little effort when it comes to the parties. This is the season to bring your A Game.  It’s one of the tings about this season I adore the most. Nice shirts, sparkling dresses, beautiful shoes, heavy fabrics, champagne flowing and Christmas songs pumping out of the stereo, enveloping you like a warm hug.

    The one thing I don’t love so much during this season is walking home from a Christmas party, in the cold, in heels. Like is it just me, or do all girls turn into some from of deformed zombie on their walk home?  Oh maybe that is just me.. Self highfive! So I have made it my mission to find flat shoes that can take you from the office, to Friday drinks in 0 point split seconds and will easily let you dance your heart out way in the early hours of Saturday mornings or even Sunday mornings! And ones that are priced in way you might even find them underneath the xmas tree 😉

    Not gonna lie, I have already clicked a few of these home… Dont judge me! Christmas comes early to girls how cant wait..

    I realize it’s been a while since I’ve posted a good ol’ recipe and when I saw this guy kept popping up on my Pinterest, I took it as a sign from the shoe gods – I mean food gods, that I just had to try it! And I’m so so so glad i did! It also gave me a babin’ opportunity to whip out my pantone chop sticks! Cause I’m cool like that yo!

    Originally posted by Domestic Superhero here. It’s a GREAT addition to the recipe collection before the festive season, just incase you need a christmas food break 🙂 and nothing beats a little heat on those chilly winter nights!

    The original calls for eggs, and is one of those one pot recipes, but I have changed it a little to cater more to my tastebuds/life style. What’s so great about this recipe is that it mostly contain things you already have in cupboard, or maybe thats just us? Cause we are obsessed with food…. No YOURE an inner fat kid.

    So you need

    1 pound (or 500 grams) spaghetti

    2 TBS olive oil, divided

    1 zucchini, cut in half vertically, then sliced in half circles

    8 ounces (or 240 grams) mushroom, chopped

    3 cloves garlic, minced

    2 TBS Sukrin Gold (or brown sugar)

    1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce

    2 TBS Sriracha hot sauce (this is A LOT of spice, tone it down if you don’t like spicy)

    2 inches (or 5cm or length of your thumb) fresh ginger, grated

    1 handful fresh cilantro, chopped

    4 green onions, chopped

    1/4 cup cashews, chopped

    What you need to do

    1. In a large stock pot, fill halfway with water, salt, and bring to a boil. Add spaghetti and cook according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

    2. In a medium bowl combine brown sugar, soy sauce, Sriracha, and ginger; whisk well to combine; set aside.

    4. Return large stock pot to stove, heat remaining 1 TBS oil over medium heat. Add zucchini, mushrooms, and garlic. Saute over medium high heat for 5-6 minutes or until veggies are cooked through.

    5. Turn heat down to low, add pasta back to pot, then pour the sauce mixture over the top. Using a wooden spoon, stir well to coat pasta and vegetables with sauce. Remove from heat, add cashews, green onions, and cilantro; stir to combine.

    6. Serve immediately.

     

    This works great warm or cold, and you can add protein such as shrimp and chicken, cook separately and add towards the end after veggies.

    There you go – Tuesday nights are officially sorted!

    Makeup Obsession

    I give up on the whole Tuesday tip thing. I can never stick to it and before I know it, it’s Wednesday night and no blog post has gone up.

    Or like Thursday…

    So whateves, I’m being rebellious, I can recommend you stuff whenever I want! I will not let my tips be controlled by days of the week starting with T! Power to the people!

    ..No YOU need to get a life!

    So while Hannah Gale is getting sent free GHD stuff and Danielle Vanier is strutting her stuff at Dune’s SS17 press day, I’m just over here hijacking any event I can. Because let’s face it, if not I’d still be swearing to the bodyshop brow shadow. Lolz

    Which I realized I first started using 10(!!!) years ago – before brows on fleek were a thing

    The lastest event I decided needed to be graced with my presence was the launch of the new Makeup Obsession range, currently exclusive to Boots. It was a rather quick stop by, as I feared if they looked too closely at my face they would realize that my makeup was in fact 12 hours old. I’m always so prepared that way haha

    Brought to you by Tam Beauty (who own Makeup Revolution), the idea is simple really. You buy yourself an empty palette box, and fill it by picking your favorite colors in shadows, blushes, highlighters and contour swatches.  A customized palette to fit your lifestyle and your personality! It’s brilliant really – if you’re not a greedy little blogger like me and ideally want a palette box for each….which you can easily do as each swatch starts at £2! How cheap is that for an eyeshadow?! Did I mention the colors are quite beautiful too?  I took the opportunity to venture out from my usual comfort zone in shadow colors and went for something a little different and I am in love love love. It’s quickly become my go to palette. In fact, it’s the only palette I am using at the moment actually… Curious? Check them out here – come to think of it, this makes a pretty amazing Christmas present!

    Hey World!, Lifestyle

    Pillow talk

    coffee-1284041_1920Today I was supposed to get my hair cut, but my hairdresser quit. I was also gonna pop by Apple and see if they can fix my apple tv. Alas it’s almost 11am and I am still in bed so I guess that won’t be happening.  If you’re waiting for my 2016 Halloween costume, you can keep on waiting. Cause it ain’t gonna happen. After spending weeks playing with my newly purchased glue gun, and channeling my inner child pulling out long lost paper mache skills, I didnt end up going out. The antlers felt a little too fancy for my sweatpants, Lempsip and sleep session. So now I have a pair of spare antlers with some furry ears kicking about if anybody wants an original Yasmine costume. It’s been 3 weeks of this random cold/flu thingy that just doesn’t seem to want to break out 100% or just F*** off.  I had all these grand plans for the end of October, all these blog post to shoot and share with you. As you can probably tell that didn’t happen either.

    I dont know about you but I can feel a trend happening here….

    I feel like your life gets put on hold when you’re ill, and it takes forever to play catchup when you’re well.

    Hashtag not a fan.

    I also have like 3000+ pictures on my camera I need to go through as well… FML

    Here’s to hoping November will be better!
