Chicken Curry


Ingredients: 
2 teaspoons oil
2 teaspoons minced garlic (or garlic powder)
1 tablespoon paprika + cumin
2 tablespoons ginger
1 can coconut milk
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 cup soy sauce and/or teryiaki sauce`
1/2 cup lime juice and zest
1 onion
4 fresh basil leaves
1 can mushrooms
1 red bell pepper
3 chicken breasts

Method:
Marinate the chicken in lime juice, soy sauce and all the spices above. In a wok, sauté the onion in oil, gradually adding ginger, garlic, paprika, cumin, red bell pepper, mushrooms... and let it simmer! Add the coconut milk and the chicken, and also the basil. Place on a high heat. It should be ready within 10 minutes. Remove from heat and serve with rice.

Veredict:
I love how exotic does chicken taste with all those intense spices. My kitchen ended up smelling like an Indian restaurant and I kinda liked it. Coconut milk adds a creamy texture that always turns out delicious. I added coriander and flaked coconut to enhance the flavour - beyond yummy!

Daisy Fields Forever

Trench Coat: Sammydress | Satchel: vintage | Blouse: vintage | Skirt: eBay | Tights: H&M | Saddle Shoes: eBay

I'm not sure if this outfit and photos were ruined or blessed by the wind. I am slowly getting used to Spring and its mood swings. I've also been trying to get back to reality aka everyday life. After my so well-deserved holidays, I still don't feel ready for routine to kick in. Not to mention I miss Ireland terribly and can't wait to go back. My days at work are getting busier (I blame Easter!) and I hardly have time for myself. I guess that's the price I have to pay so I can afford going somewhere else. All the money I've earned with my own sweat is the living proof of how sacrifice pays (well, crime would pay more, obviously). At least, in this case. I am proud of not depending on my parents when it comes to save and spend - that's probably my biggest achievement. It doesn't sound like a big deal but it is to me. I've been working hard for years so I could have my financial independence and it feels good when it finally comes the time for a little reward.
Now, back to the outfit. Saddle shoes, floral tights, ponytail - isn't this an in-your-face Springtime look? Oh, and daisies. Of course. As if one could ever imagine Spring without daisies...

Eugene Lushpin


Eugene Lushpin is one of the most inspiring contemporary artists, whose work, influenced by the Russian Realism School, captures the beauty and serenity of light and landscape wonderfully. Lushpin was born in Moscow in 1966 and his paintings reflect a melancholic mood, either it's an urban backdrop or a countryside scenario. The dim-lit atmosphere at dusk and dawn gives me the impression that I am actually there, in the urban fairytale or in a desert alley, surrounded by snow-covered rooftops and lonely streets, and even feeling the temperature and experiencing how the air would smell. Lushpin's brushstrokes give birth to a sharp contrast, a brilliant use of colour and also a realism that, at first glance, might lead you to mistake these paintings for photos. Impressive artwork.

♥ Sunday Best ♥ #52

Ludwig Becker has captured a meteor in watercolour back in 1860. I would gladly hang this painting in my wall.


Prettiest stockings ever! Where can I actually purchase them?

YUM! This taco salad might just be the most delicious thing! How very crunchy!

This toaster would come in handy.

Brooklyn-based photographer Henry Hargreaves and food stylist Caitlin Levin have created this concept called Food Maps, a playful cartography series of geographical locations made out of the iconic foods that best represent them.

This dress is adorable!

These engraved rolling pins are amazing! I love the burger and chips pattern and of course, the dinosaurs!

Mads Mikkelsen and Evan Rachel Wood would have made a cool couple, don't you think? After watching this film, I can tell you there's a lot of chemistry between these two.


Okay, this lamp is really something. I would probably spend an afternoon staring at such art piece.
