Pink, White And Red

I LOVE the colours in this look. The pretty pink-lavender hue of the Iris And Ink coat (No longer available will add link to similar item here), with the pop of red of these tie up flats from River Island (These were under £30 but now they are on sale for £18), and gorgeous white top by Self Portrait (Out of stock and no similar items found).This outfit is relaxed and pretty, perfect for a day time or evening look. These distressed relaxed fit jeans from Zara are so comfortable and stylish (Link to similar jeans here). They work well with both flats and heels. I have had them for almost a year and they are still my favourite.

Valentine’s Day Look

I am so happy to share my Valentines’s Day look with all of you. I believe everyday should be a day that you appreciate the one you Love. Love is a beautiful thing and the most important thing in the universe.

This look is so pretty and I adore the red heels and skirt from New Look. The pop of red really compliments the navy blue skirt. This Balmain blazer is such a classic jacket and it is gorgeous both dressed up or down. It is the favourite pieces in my wardrobe thanks to my amazing sister who surprised me with it. I love investment pieces because they will always be stylish and you can wear them over and over again.

To complete this look I’m wearing a simple white polo neck top from New Look and bag from H&M. I love simplicity in my outfits! I hope you love this look and have a beautiful day with the one you love by your side.

Sweet Potato Falafel with Carrot and Beetroot Salad

Today is a another amazing day! I am finally starting to offer personalised meal plans and fitness programs after so many people constantly asked me to start doing it. I made this delicious and simple post workout meal today and wanted to share the recipe with all of you. So enjoy it and please try it because it is so YUM!

Recipe type: Salad, Side Dish, Vegetarian, Vegan, Contains nuts

Ingredients

For the falafel
1 large or 2 small sweet potatoes
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tsp ground coriander
handful coriander leaves, chopped
juice ½ lemon
100g plain or gram flour
1 tbsp olive oil

For the salad
2 large carrots
½ Beetroot
Handful of walnuts
Handful of dried apricots
One spring onion
½ Red chilli

Method

Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Boil sweet potatoes for 8-10 mins until tender. Leave to cool a little, then peel. Put the potato, cumin, garlic, ground and fresh coriander, lemon juice and flour into a large bowl. Season, then mash until smooth. Using a tablespoon, shape mix and into balls. Put on an oiled baking sheet, bake for around 15 mins until the bases are golden brown, then flip over and bake for 15 mins more until brown all over.

The carrots and beetroot have to be grated into long, thin strips (as shown above). Add the spinach leaves, dried apricots, chopped spring onion and chillies. To finish add some walnuts and squeeze some fresh lemon juice over the salad. Add salt to taste. Serve fresh with the falafel for a delicious and healthy post workout meal that will fill you with energy and happiness.

Have a beautiful day!
