Welcome back to week #17 of Camera Lucida Photo Challenge

This week’s theme: ‘Hidden’

  1. kept out of sight; concealed;
  2. difficult to find, lying beyond what is obvious or avowed.

 

This week capture something out of sight…a beautiful piece that you’ve discovered.

I’ve took these photos a few months back and the scenery may have looked very simple then but going through them now…the colours are so beautiful and they make me feel inspired, like I’ve discovered something new:)

Share with the world your latest discovery…something that made you smile…something that was concealed from the naked eye…something that inspired you!

My Fashion ‘Must’


Hello World:)

Welcome back to my Fashion Guide…

I’ve been thinking for a while…what’s new and I must have it!?

To be honest…not much…:)

…what about…what’s already mine and I’m in love with it?!

IMG_1403-1

Well…here is My Fashion ‘must’ for 2016!

The Little Red Dress 

You can never go wrong with something new…something red:) On it’s own it can be a beautiful going out piece but we the right accessories…you can take it out for a walk as day wear…even sporty look!

Silver Sport Shoes

To be completely honest, it never crossed my mind to wear silver with red…but it works. I believe it comes down to the “think it through” mix and match rule: Try it, Wear It, Love It! I’ve always loved the odd combination of elegant and sporty…perfect casual with a touch of your own personality:)

The Black Hat

Comes and goes…but it’s somehow always here! Last years accessory is this years must have:) Take your style a bit further and give it a bit of mystery…

The Elegant Bow Tie

It’s not just for men:) Is there anything left in Fashion that only women or men wear? Nothing really comes to mind…it might be because it’s 10pm and I am a bit sleepy:)

To be fair, I’ve always loved bow ties…yes it makes a man look sexy, but it also gives a woman a beautifully powerful look!

The Beats

This one it’s a personal choice…and not just because it’s red 🙂

Have a bit of music in your life; everything feels and looks different with the sound of your favourite beat!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this weeks Fashion Guide…:)

 

Your Fashion Girl,

‘The Comfort of the Sea’


Welcome back to my beautiful and tasty Kitchen Corner 🙂

It’s been a while since I’ve done a savoury dish…so I guess it’s the perfect time to start a New Year Resolution…

Discover another delicious taste of the Sea!

Just before Christmas I was watching Rick Stein’s world food travels and stumbled on this amazing recipe, which I didn’t have to think twice to try it out:)

So, here it is…my version of a Rick Stein original!

Comfort of the Sea…or Salmon on a bed of  roasted tomatoes.

Ingredients: 2 salmon fillets, handful of parsley, fresh if possible; 3 tbs capers; olive oil; 3 garlic cloves; 4 medium tomatoes, sliced; chilli flakes; handful of fresh thyme; 10 tbs water; salt and pepper.

Method: Preheat the oven.

Chop the parsley, half of the thyme, capers, garlic cloves, half of the chilli flakes and mix, add a bit of salt. I’ve used an electric grinder/chopper that mixed everything together creating a green paste.

Line the base of a baking tray/roasting tin with a non-stick baking paper and lay the slices of tomato. Scatter the remaining chilli flakes, thyme, add salt, olive oil and the 10 tbs of water on the tomatoes.

Brush the skin side of the salmon with olive oil, salt and pepper and place the fillet with the skin down on the bed of tomatoes. Season lightly with salt, then cover with the green paste mixture.

Lightly season the other salmon fillet and place skin side up on the top.

Brush the second fillet on the skin with a bit of olive oil, add the remaining thyme, season everything with salt and pepper and a few chilli flakes.

Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until the skin of the salmon gets slightly crispy.

Serve with the juicy baked tomatoes and maybe some new potatoes and parsley.

The sides are up to you…choose what you love:)

The original recipe has mint leaves and anchovy fillets added into the green paste. I didn’t use them as I am not a fan of anchovy and mint leaves, I only use with some specific recipes:)

This is a beautiful tasty dish for any day to be honest…I hope you will try it and love it!

 

Your Girl with an Apron,

Julia
