How to wear Metallic Court shoes

There's just something about metallic courts that makes me want to go for cocktails in the sun. These beautiful courts are from Daniel Footwear and they make even the most casual outfit seem dressier. I decided to wear them with my DIY Next jeans and little cami. The metallic bag was a gift and matches the shoes perfectly which is always a bonus! I accessorised with a vintage white belt, my necklace from Delilah Dust (also worn here) and my Links of London blue friendship bracelet

super healthy vegetarian and dairy & gluten free salad

Since deciding to go Pescetarian a few months ago I've really enjoyed experimenting with cooking. Esp since I've discovered my love of Quinoa! This recipe is really quick and simple, perfect for lunch!

This is enough for two people

Ingredients:
1 cup of Quinoa 
Half a red pepper chopped into cubes 
Half a cucumber chopped into cubes
1 Acocado sliced
Crumbled goats cheese
King Prawns
Handful of pine nuts
Pinch of crushed Chillies
Salt and Pepper to serve

Method:
1. Boil the Quinoa with some salt and pepper until cooked through and put to the side to chill, toast the pine nuts and leave to cool.
2. Grill the Prawns with the garlic, whilst cooling mix together the Pepper, Cucumber, Quinoa, Avocado and Pine Nuts.
3. Add the Prawns, goats cheese and a little balsamic vinegar, mix and your good to go!


What's your favourite recipe at the moment?

Pale Sandstone

This week I was invited to the Disaronno terrace party in Edinburgh I took advantage of the beautiful sandstone building's to get some snaps. 

I'm getting really into tunic dresses and this white number from Lavish Alice is perfect for day to night. I wore it with an oversized biker coat in pink for a little colour pop and some little boots. I love that the coat is the same length as the dress, makes me feel quite 60's.

roses are pink

Moving house sucks. I mean really sucks, and packing is the worst but it does give you an opportunity to reassess your wardrobe. 

I hadn't worn this dress in YEARS, I'm not even joking, I hate throwing clothes out so I tend to hoard, and this little number was just sitting at the back of my wardrobe, forgotten and lonely. I've worn it probably twice before so as far as I'm concerned it's like a whole new dress. I decided to opt for super casual, the dress did have shoulder pads so I cut them out and popped a little white sleeveless shirt underneath. I recently got this pink vintage jumper and the boxy shape is amazing, the colour is so pale it's almost cream. It pretty much matches my new slouch boots from The Style Edit, so comfy and they're faux leather so vegan friendly!

Things I love - August '14 edition

I can't believe it's almost September! This month has gone by in a complete daze for me and I'm just beginning to come out of it! My wishlist for August is full of things I'm obsessing over, and one or two things I couldn't live without.




A clear envelope handbag filled with glitter is something I need in my life! Luna on the moon is an amazing etsy store filled with quirky handmade bags, you may recognise them from my eyeball bag! 

*

I can't get enough of the Pink Velvetine from Lime Crime, this lipstick is long lasting and hard wearing, and it doesn't feather one little bit. Make sure your careful when you put it on as mistakes are hard to fix.

*

These necklaces from Bloody Mary Metal can be worn together, better yet give one to your other half or your bff. Who's in your wolf pack?

*
A shirt with cartoon cats on it. Need I say more? Lazy Oaf are knocking it out the park yet again. 

*

Valfre is just one of those artists you can't help fall in love with. "I donut give a fuck" is also available as a phone case. Perfect. 

What are you obsessing over this month?
