Hello, December!


Welcome back to my Fashion Guide…

It’s been a while…

Life has been so busy in the past few months that I haven’t had the chance to write as much as I would love to…

I’ve missed it…

This week I’ve decided to write about one of the best trends this winter

The Statement Ankle Boot

The Ankle Boot

Everywhere we look this winter, it’s all about ankle boots…to be honest, this one piece it’s here to stay and it’s somehow becoming a classic:)

The black suede will always be my favourite!

…flat or heels, choose the ones that work for you.

Personally, I go for block heels because it can be matched with jeans for a more relaxed look or with a dress/skirt for a going out style.

But if that’s not your trend, you can always go for buckle-boots, riding style…no matter what the fashion tells you, choose the piece that works for you.

Winter cosy

…and never forget to accessories:)

I have three reasons why I love winter time:

  • New Boots
  • A beautiful Coat
  • Warm and cosy accessories

A well coordinated accessory can do wonders for your look…might that be mittens, a hat or your knitted long scarf!

So…what will be your Winter Cosy?

 

Your Fashion Girl,

Julia

‘Camera Lucida’ – Garden Treasure


Welcome back to week #14 of Camera Lucida Photo Challenge

Watering Pot

This week’s theme: Garden Treasure

  1. a piece of ground adjoining a house, used for growing flowers, fruit, or vegetables
  2. a quantity of precious metals, gems, or other valuable objects.

Watering pot

I’ll be very honest and say that gardening never was my strong side…it’s quite relaxing in a way but I could never call it a hobby…a way of life…or a must:)

What does fascinate me is the visual perspective of everything that relates to gardening…there is something that attracts the eye…and it’s not always the end product.

The muddy boots…the old watering pot that has been used for generations…the colourful utensils that have a bigger purpose than just to dig and cut or just break the soil…

This week your challenge is to share what is your garden treasure…it is your beautiful and personalised box of gardening utensils…maybe your secret corner of heaven…a rare flower that makes you proud…your dirty boots and gloves…

What is your garden treasure…how does your garden reflect you?

Share this week a piece of you…maybe a little secret that you’ve kept hidden behind a beautiful evergreen pot:)

‘Your New Savoury Snack’


Welcome back to my beautiful and tasty Kitchen Corner 🙂

Red Onion Savoury Jam
Red Onion Savoury Jam

This week I am sharing with you a new recipe that I’ve discovered just recently:)… beautiful and delicious red onion jam.

Absolutely perfect with all kinds of meats…great addition to sandwiches…and amazing snack with rosemary crackers!

Ingredients: 

  • 1/2 kg of red onion (chopped)
  • 1 1/2 cup of red wine
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp chilli flakes
  • 2 tbs wine vinegar (I’ve used red but white will work as well)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tsp thyme (fresh is the best but dried will work)

Method: Heat the olive oil in a deep frying pan, add the onions and let them sweat for a few minutes.

Add the sugar and stir until dissolved, pour in the wine and the vinegar, add the bay leaves, chilli flakes. Cover the pan with a lid and leave to simmer for about 45 minutes, stirring from time to time until it thickens.

Remove the bay leaves add salt and pepper.

It can be served immediately along side your main dish or stored away into a jar to be consumed within 2 weeks.

Best to store in the fridge!

Red Onion Jam

We’ve made it this weekend and just enjoyed it as a snack with delicious rosemary crackers:)

Let me know what you think once you’ll try your own savoury jam!

Bon Appetit!

Your Girl with an Apron,
