Milan fashion week: My favorites

Hi!

Since my London fashion week post was very popular and I really loved making it I decided to make a Milan fashion week favorites post. Of course I have been watching all the shows and unfortunately I didn’t like a lot of the shows. I think because I was so excited about London fashion week and I loved a lot of shows there. But I did find some brands who did have decent clothes.

The first one to catch my eye is Emilio Pucci Spring 2014
I loved the outfits because it is all streetstyle. It’s something we would wear and for me that’s one of the most important things when I look at a show. I also love the special creations, the things I won’t ever wear because that’s fashion, but sometimes you’re just looking for inspiration and for me the Pucci show had that inspiration.

The second show was the Jil Sander Spring 2014 show
Simple but effective

Healthy junk

Hi everyone!
My favorite time of the year has finally started. It’s autumn!
The upcoming months (including the winter) always make me feel really happy.
But.. there’s also a negative side, for me, on this time of the year: the food.
The cosiness in my house and the colth and rainy weather outside just make me wanna eat all sorts of bad things. That’s why I decided to look for some ”healthy bad food”.
And I thought there might be more people like me so I’ll share it with you guys!

The first recipe I found was something I really love since I ate my first piece of it at Starbucks:
Carrot cake! Apparently there’s a healthier way of making this cake.
I found this recipe on eatingwell.com

Carrot Cake: The healthy recipe

Carrots give carrot cake a health-halo effect—people think it’s health food, but it’s usually very high in fat and calories. But our version has about 40 percent less calories and 50 percent less fat than most. First, we use less oil in our batter. Then we skip the butter in the frosting (don’t worry, it’s still light and smooth). To ensure the cake is moist, we add nonfat buttermilk and crushed pineapple.

INGREDIENTS CAKE

1 20-ounce can crushed pineapple
2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour, (see Ingredient Note)
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3 large eggs
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup nonfat buttermilk, (see Tip)
1/2 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups grated carrots, (4-6 medium)
1/4 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted (see Tip)
FROSTING
12 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese, (Neufchâtel), softened
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar, sifted
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons coconut chips, (see Ingredient Note) or flaked coconut, toasted

PREPARATION
To prepare cake: Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
Drain pineapple in a sieve set over a bowl, pressing on the solids. Reserve the drained pineapple and 1/4 cup of the juice.
Whisk flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Whisk eggs, sugar, buttermilk, oil, vanilla and the 1/4 cup pineapple juice in a large bowl until blended. Stir in pineapple, carrots and 1/4 cup coconut. Add the dry ingredients and mix with a rubber spatula just until blended. Stir in the nuts. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan, spreading evenly.
Bake the cake until the top springs back when touched lightly and a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack.
To prepare frosting and finish cake: Beat cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar and vanilla in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Spread the frosting over the cooled cake. Sprinkle with toasted coconut.

Enjoy!!

London fashion week; my favorites

Hi!

I’m a little late with this but nevermind!
London fashion week just finished and for me that is the most amazing fashion week of the year. I love the work of all the british designers. I thought I’d just post some of my favorite outfits/shows of the LFW 2013. They’re al black and white , cause that are kind of the only colors I wea :)r. My fave show was the Burberry Prorsum both spring/summer and fall/winter.

I loved almost everything I saw on the catwalk of the Burberry show this year! All the clothes are so casual but still look very luxurious. I picked the outfit Jordan Dunn was wearing because I think she looked amazing in it and I love the blouse.

I didn’t really like the fall/winter collection of beautiful soul London but I did like the spring/summer looks. Love this casual black dress.
