Your Weekly Style Shopper: Its not just any Fall..It’s Falling Red this season! Ft Amerie

Before I even realized red was going to hit it big this fall in all different shades from blood red to bright red to burgundy or oxblood I had bought myself a red blazer in the brightest red possible! I am still struggling to not put it on everyday as I walk out the door! Its my one fave wardrobe item that I am not getting enough facetime with! And was it a surprise when one of my coworker asked me this week if red’s my fave color? Yes to it was! I thought no body noticed my strategic wearing of my red capris, red blazer and red pencil skirt more than any other item I currently have in my closet πŸ™‚

Anyhow I thought Blazers were always sophisticated at one point I thought they were almost too mommy like or office wear. But the recent trending completely changed my outlook on them. I am loving blazers in alittle edgier looks with shorts and tights oh not to forget leather! I wanted to dedicate this weeks post to Blazers and not in just color but the color Red! The Romper makes the look really classy and the shiny snake print pumps kick the look up a notch! When other see you coming down the street they wont know what hit them! All the pieces are unique but they work pretty well together and none of the items over power each other. Perfect Balance and harmony.

Let me know if you are falling for red blazers like I am?

Fall Purple Outfit of the Day and Repping the Ravens!

Fall is officially here and I couldnt wait to step back into one of my all time fave outfit styles in my fave color: A Plummish or Purple Dress with tights and boots! Not to mention I am a big Ravens fan and our team colors are Black and Purple. I had to rep the colors after this Sunday’s AMMMAZING WIN!

I wore the outfit to work with a Black Blazer on top. I had no makeup on all day.I did a quick 5 minute makeup magic trick as I was headed out of work. Simple transition from work to a date night outfit in a jiffy. Unfortunately I didn’t picture the Blazer with my outfit cause I wanted to show off the dress once I got out of work and headed to dinner with the hubby! Left the Blazer in the car πŸ™‚

These boots are the only boots that are doctor appointed to be worn by me for now! Cant wait to fully recover my feet so i can break into some different pair of boots! Lets hope I get to do that by the end of this winter. As mentioned on my inspiration page Plantar Fasciitis could be a life long ailment so lets keep our fingers crossed πŸ™‚

Your Weekly Style Shopper: LBBD Little Black BRIGHT Dress – ft Rihanna and Baby Spice

Hello dahlings!

Its friday end of the work week and beginning of relaxation, partying, get togethers whatever else floats your boat! (lets not forget football). I am currently enjoying some much needed me time and reminiscing about the brightest blood orangish cutest pumps I saw at H&M. I was super close to buying them but the foot ailment stopped me from such an on the whim decision. Let my foot get fixed (if ever) and we will have shoes galore and me laying in between them hmm that would make a great movie poster for a chickflick about women, girlfriends and shopping!

Now that I have returned from near dead thanks to my NFL app that decided to play loud music to give me updates on this week injuries, as I was sitting here and typing this( Didn’t expect loud trumpet and drums style music to ring but updating to new iOS6 release for iphone has changed all my settings) lets talk about what would I wear these orgasmic shoes with? Something simple, something sensual and sexy….. the idea of a black dress popped in my head. And then I landed on not just any black dress but the naughtiest of the black dress. Just when you think this is all the view anyone’s gonna get, it gives them a heart attack by giving them a glimpse of your legs…did they say peekabo?

It then dawned on me what a brilliant idea forget the old school Little Black dress with black pumps and your hair in an updo! How about we do Little black BRIGHT dress and while we are at it we will put a matching bright pendant around our neck and let our hair down and be as fierce as we can be! After all we are powerful women. Its not that easy to tame our wild side!

Thai Beef Coconut Curry or The curry you can present to your mother!

I stepped in the kitchen with a new ideas. I was craving some sort of dry curry. Something with tons of flavor and as always I look up a million things and come up with my own set of ingredients inspired by 15 recipes. So far things have been going well in the kitchen and I havent yet plated something too heinous to enjoy!

This recipe turned out so great that I came up with the name “The Curry you can present to your mother”. I would no doubt plate this infront of my mom the queen of cooking without hesitation cause I personally believe that she will lick her fingers to the bone once she digs into it! It was soo good that I almost wanted to make it today. Now here is a quick note about me I tend to eat my favorite foods over and over till I get bored of them, so I had to refrain myself from that idea!

Anyhow give this dry yummy thai style curry a try and let me know if you were licking your fingers to the bones as well!

 

 

Ingredients:

1/2 lbΒ  of cubed or stripped beef

Half an onion cubed

1 to 2 garlic clove (I like garlic so I went with 2)

1/2 tsp ginger paste (you can used chopped ginger as well)

8 Table spoons Lime juice

Pinch of Sugar

2 table spoon Soy sauce

7 to 8 squirts of Sirarcha(Rooster Sauce)

2 teaspoons turmeric

2 teaspoons cumin

1 1/2 cup Beef stock

1/2 cup coconut milk

1 tablespoon oil

 

Recipe :

1) Heat up the stock with the cubed beef and bring it a boil. Reduce the heat to low and let it simmer covered for about 15 minutes

2) Put Onion, garlic, ginger paste, 4 table spoons of lime juice, sugar, soy sauce, half the amount of sirarcha, oil, turmeric and cumin in a blender. Add a table spoon or two of coconut milk to help blend well into as paste.

3) Place the beef on a hot wok or frying pan and cover it with the paste you just blended.

4)Once the paste starts to simmer add the remaining coconut milk and 1/2 cup of beef stock used earlier.

5) Bring it to a boil and then let it simmer for 20 minutes untill the paste turns dry around the beef.
If you prefer liquid curry over dry curry you can go ahead and add some more broth and coconut milk at this point.

Serve with jasime or white rice!

 

 

 

 

 

Black and Lace the ever Classic: OOTD Video

Hey lovelies!

I was super excited to put on this outfit when we were headed to the mall and then to an awesome dinner date only to realize it started pouring outside 😦 Which meant no place to shoot pics of this outfit! I improvised by making a quick video and snapping a picture at home! Maybe this will be my unfair weather friend idea since I just heard this year would be a bad winter for the Upper East coast tons of snow in forecast for us!
Well I am still trying to see a positive to the whole crazy weather thing. I work at a University so that means more snow days for me πŸ™‚ Last year was expecting to jump with joy like a College Student whenever School close but that never happened *womp womp womp*

I am already getting excited for the coming Holiday season starting with Halloween. Wondering who I will be this year …I so want to be Captain America!

Enjoy and let me know what you think of the Outfit Video post instead of a regular Outfit pictures post?

 

Check out the Outfit Video for all the details of the outfit!

Your Weekly Style Shopper: Being Girlie is never out of Season (Featuring Beyonce)

Hi lovelies!

Its that time of the week again. Weeekeeennndd! My weekends lately have been very laid back and relaxing. Its good to keep life stress free πŸ™‚

Anyhow With the Fall coming I am thinking more and more of outfits, colors, patterns that are ever lasting or in other words not bound by season. Hot pink and purple is one perfect example for women. One can never get tired of wearing pink and being girlie and no one else looks at you and wonders well its *insert any season of your choice here* why is she wearing that?

So with that said I was very lucky to find these semi printed hot pink Pants at H&M for mere 17 bucks! I haven’t yet worn them but I have been bursting with ideas on how I will style them. Tribal print hasn’t gone away yet this year we are still seeing it in stores and online and this top just was too good to pass for the low price of 10 bucks. I thought this outfit is perfect to stroll around the park in, have a scrumptious picnic or just hang with your budds at a cafe!

What are some of your key fave girlie fashion items that you rock every season?

Necklace: Amazon $8.99

Pumps: 6pm $19.99

Top: Forever 21 $10.80

Pants: H&M $17.95

Hump Day Snack Attack: Candy Corn Oreos! Limited Edition!

Yesterday was a day just like any other when all of a sudden the entire office was shaken by the landing of Candy Corn Oreos at all US Target stores.

My coworkers frantically called several Target stores in the area to see who has put theirs out on the shelves and after calling a few they hit jackpot! The target right by my house is the first one to stock its shelves with the Limited edition Halloween Special goodies!

So this morning the Candy Corn Oreos were being passed around the office and I got my hands on them.

Let me start with saying I am not a fan of Oreos but this version is quite interesting. They in all honesty do not taste exactly like candy corn but I did enjoy them as a cookie enough to proclaim out loud that I will be heading to Target some time this week to get some of my own. And no I am not going today right after work which means? I am not really that excited about them. I did get a quick kick of sugar when i bit into them. They seemed alittle overwhelmingly sweet due to the creme center but the cookie on the outside balanced it out. It to me has some uncanny resemblance in taste to Banana creme cookies minus the obvious banana taste, if that makes any sense? πŸ™‚

I will deem them a good Hump Day Snack to keep us going till Friday πŸ™‚

Let me know what your thoughts are on The Limited Edition Candy Corn Oreo Cookies….would you try them or your going to pass on the fad?

Your Weekly Style Shopper: Painting the Night Cobalt Blue

I am so glad it’s Friday! Last work day of the week and now that I refuse to touch work from home I actually enjoy my days off! No more constant thinking about my to do list! I am so not looking forward to going to the mall this weekend…I am nearly broke and I just noticed online all the cool stuff H&M just put out! Sigh….I guess I work this hard to dress myself right?

This weeks bargain items got slightly pricier this probably the most expensive set I have ever came up with but unfortunately it is one of my top faves and I am planning to buy all of these items for sure! The initiation of this outfit started when I was at the mall last weekend and saw these printed pants at H&M my first reaction -I dont ever see myself wearing them – then somehow the pants started to grow on me, in my head I started seeing ideas of how I can incorporate it in my closet. Then yesterday when I did my Mens Fashion post on Cobalt blue as the color of Fall 2012 for men, I realized I would love to have some cobalt in my closet! Hence came the shoes, top and necklace! I work kindda backwards most people get inspiration from a celeb pictures or other bloggers pictures…thats the last thing I google after I am done putting together all my bargains cause if I am thinking about a trend, somewhere out there has worn it or something close to it πŸ™‚ The birth of an idea should be in my own mind for me to drive satisfaction from my creations.

Necklace: Overstock Turquoise and Stone – $8.99

Pants: H&M – 24.95

Top: Forever 21 Lace Trim Peplum – $19.80

Shoes: Forever 21 Platform Pumps – 32.80
