Primark Festival Dress

Primark Festival Dress As a girl on a budget I love nothing more than a bargain and this Primark Festival Dress is the ULTIMATE bargain!

I have to admit Primark sometimes frightens me, it can get a little bit frantic and there are clothes all over the floor and people scrambling around for bargains and I feel like I am in a war zone where it’s every man for themselves! However, sometimes I am very brave and venture into the breach in order to bag myself a bargain and this Primark Festival Dress was well worth the stress!

Primark Festival Dress At only £10, this dress had to be purchased. I really love the print detail across the fabric with the hem and sleeve red patterned detail which adds a great pop of colour and makes it so much more flattering. I have a couple of parties and a mini festival to attend this summer and the Primark Festival Dress is on the top of my list for getting packed! So far I’ve teemed it with my Bertie chunky sandals and my new favourite French Connection strappy emerald heels. I am also keen to try it out with a pair of flats and a top thrown over the top to make it layered as a top and skirt combo with the funky hem line and sleeves showing. I love a dress that is versatile enough to be worn for different occasions and to get layered up. A capsule wardrobe is an absolute must for me!

Superdry Multi Folk Stitch Mini Skirt

Superdry Multi Folk Stitch Mini SkirtMy absolute latest obsession – and it’s a bit of a mouthful – is my Superdry Multi Folk Stitch Mini Skirt. I have been wearing this with pretty much everything and anything. It’s one of those key pieces where I’ve had so many compliments about it and everyone is always really surprised when I tell them it’s from Superdry. So what is so great about the Superdry Multi Folk Stitch Mini Skirt? It’s got an a-line shape so is really flattering on the thighs and it makes it a comfortable fit. The denim blue base colour makes it easy to dress up or down, I have worn this on a night out with some killerSuperdry Multi Folk Stitch Mini Skirt heels as well as with my comfy moccasins for laid back day time feel. And the brightly coloured aztec / folk stitch pattern means you can pair it with so many different coloured clothes. I’ve been wearing mine with some French Connection emerald coloured shoes and the colour pop makes it a great outfit for the summer.

I’ve also been styling it with my Primark denim shirt, a plain tee and my converse sneakers for the ultimate laidback look. I am honestly struggling to find something that I can’t wear it with!

Superdry Multi Folk Stitch Mini Skirt

I plan to take the Superdry Multi Folk Stitch Mini Skirt through to my winter wardrobe by wearing it with thick black tights and either some Chelsea boots or a pair of brogues. This is one of few skirts that I feel comfortable wearing with flats, because the shape of the skirt is so flattering I don’t feel the need to wear heels to lengthen my legs and for a mini skirt I don’t feel too daring and baring in it.

So if I can recommend one item for your festival wardrobe which you can take through to the winter it’s got to be the Superdry Multi Folk Stitch Mini Skirt!

Chickpea Snacks

Chickpea SnacksChickpea snacks are the best little bitesize of deliciousness you can make at home. They are cheap, easy to make and are great to bag up to take on the go. I like to make these for road trips, or to keep in my drawer at work. The great thing about these chickpea snacks is that you can make any flavour you want and the process is exactly the same.

To make your own chickpea snacks all you need to do is pre-heat your oven to 190C. Then drain your tin of chickpeas and put them into a bowl, It’s best to try and pat them dry with some kitchen towel to try and get the damp out. Finally drizzle with olive oil or melted coconut oil, then add in your flavour of choice, either sprinkle in some garam masala powder, or chili or paprika powder.Then pop on a baking tray covered in parchment paper. and bake in the over for 30 – 40 minutes.

Chickpeas are super healthy and are really low in calories and will help fill you up, so it makes the perfect snack between meals to help tide you over.

Enjoy your delicious, healthy baked chickpea snacks!

Halloumi Cheese Recipe

Halloumi Cheese Recipe

Halloumi cheese with honey, pistachios rosemary and thyme

This halloumi cheese recipe is the best! It is perfect as a small meal on it’s own when you’re not really hungry on a hot summers day, and also makes a great side dish for steak or salad. I do love a versatile recipe!

This little beauty couldn’t be any easier! All you need is to grill your halloumi until it’s browned on both sides, then chop up some pistachios and scatter them over the top, drizzle some honey over everything. And then finally chop up a little bit of fresh rosemary and thyme and sprinkle that over the lot. And hey presto you’ve got yourself one flavoursome treat!

Enjoy!

Jambalaya Recipe

jambalaya recipeWhen Roo Boy is away I really like to play with my food but sometimes (don’t tell him I said so!) I actually miss him being around, so I made this Jambalaya recipe that reminds me of him. Ahhhhhh! It’s not because he likes this recipe – there’s too much onion in it and he couldn’t cope with that it’s actually because it reminds me of our third date at Chiquitos and we both saw jambolaya on the menu and simultaneously burst into song and I think that pretty much sealed the deal in my eyes, I realised he was me just with boy bits 😛

So here is the jambalaya recipe that makes me feel warm and fuzzy on the inside, a little bit sweaty on the top lip and even had vegetarians saying “that smells delicious! What it is?!” and then looking like they’d committed the ultimate sin when they realised it had lots of meat in it!
