Memories 2...

Helloooo, so this is my second edition in the series, very excited that I am going to be doing this every wednesday and enjoyyyy...

This was made entirely of chocolate and cake, how awsome is that...


 I still can't believe that I took this, it looks so professional and like it should be in a magazine or book cover..

We stayed at the Monte Carlo and this was our view, it was stunning in the night.

 I think this was the bellagio pool area,but other than that I have no words...

 There were many decorative pieces on a ornamental tree and this was one of them


Sooo, this is me and I am standing near this snail made entirely out of roses, yes roses..

Let me know what you like this week, it can be anything... and I would love to know.

Memories 1...

I love taking pictures, I love to capture things; beauty, scenery, life, etc. I thought I would start a segment where I post pictures that I have taken and pictures that I like, this can be from anywhere and about anything.

My brother had this nutella, chocolate and brownie crepe in the Bellagio, Las Vegas.

The Monte Carlo Magical Fountain Show, we saw this quite a few times, an every time it was amazing.

Pictures are memories and it is good to have a lot of memories, when you look back at them you remember the place where the picture was taken and all you felt at that moment rushes back, whether it be good or bad, and I love that..

I had to take a picture of this sign, it is just classic and I have decided that whatever place I visit in the near future, I will definitely be taking pictures with the name of the place.

This is in the Paris Shopping Centre.

How lovely does this look..

And I am going to be doing this every Wednesday, because it is my favourite day of the week other than the weekend(obviously). Let me know what you like and tell me a good memory...

I am in Uni, it is very exciting and there is a lotttt to study, but cooking...You try really hard to cook and be really healthy, but that does'nt seem possible after all the lectures, watching youtube and being lazy in general. After I have actually cooked something, it seems like I am eating real food and that is really amazing..

Sooo, Here we go...

The recipe...(For 1 person)
Salmon Fillet
Salt and Pepper
Chilli Powder 

I used this lemon Jif, it is basically lemon juice in a tiny little bottle, you can use whatever else you have..

Place the salmon in a bowl and add the pepper, salt, chilli powder, lemon juice and anything else that you want to garnish it with. Mix everything and let it marinate for about 30 mins to an hour. 

Heat a pan and add some oil to fry the salmon, you can oven cook it, if you wish. After the oil heats a bit, add the salmon and fry it till it is to your preferred texture, I fried mine till it looked like it was nearly burnt..   

I promise you that I did not pour so much oil, the salmon releases some oils...

 After the salmon is done, serve with some salad, dressing and Voila you are done, finito!!! 

If any of you are in Uni, hope this is helpful and it really doesn't take long, marinate and fry that's it. If you are vegetarian you could always eat it with quorn instead.

I ate mine with some kiwi, kiwi and green grapes are my favourite right now, what is yours??

My mum has beautiful taste and she bought me some jewellery from Primark. When I go into Primark I just have a look around the shop, I skim past the jewellery section because there is sooo much... 

As everyone say's there are some gems in Primark, but you have to look for them, really look for them and these are gems. I love jewellery but I just don't have the patience to envision everything when I buy them.

I think earrings are a must, they just are beautiful and I absolutely love them, I guess it is a good thing that I have so many...

I am getting swept into the crazy knuckle/midi ring trend, I just want some, they just look really cool and I think that they would suit me.

Well you know what I am going to be looking for..anything that you particularly like or are crazed about??

Betty Barclay....

So, I bought a new bag from TKMaxx... The make of the bag is Betty Barclay and it is a cross-body bag with I'd say a dark beige colour mixed with a bit of grey, the colour with the silver buckle and chain is very complementary. 

It does have a handle but I probably won't use it very often, I'm more of a have the bag on the shoulder kinda person

It has Betty Barclay indented on both sides of the bag on the side strap

The bag has a bit of chain joined to the strap and this sticks with the new trend, chains are very big right now and I am slowly getting into it

The strap is like a belt buckle and is adjustable to suit you, I made it as small as possible so that it doesn't hit my leg when I walk

The bag is very spacious

I absolutely love this bag, it's suits all my needs and it is very spacious, I scoured the entire store and only spotted this at the end, lucky me ;)
