Early autumn outfit

Hi, beautiful people!  After a short, short break from blogging, I am back with a lot of new interesting articles that I hope you will love. I am gonna be very active on Social Media these days, so stay tuned and follow me on my Facebook and Instagram accounts.

Because here in Copenhagen it still feels like summer, I have a quite summerish outfit post for you today. I am wearing a synthetic leather dress from Zara, a white cotton shirt from Soaked in luxury  and some very comfortable sneakers from Monki, which became one of my favourite shops here in Denmark.

What I love most about the Zara dress is its versatility: I can wear it in the summer with a lace bra under, like in these photos, in the autumn and spring over a T-shirt or a blouse and in the winter over a turtleneck. A dress like this is essential for a basic wardrobe! Also, it’s super comfortable! It will be one of my favourite items this fall, I can feel it🙂

Recipe of the day: Cherry tomatoes pasta

Hello, beautiful people! If it’s Sunday, there is a new recipe on the blog :) When I am cooking, I don’t like to do complicated stuff, because simple things taste better. I really believe that and I encourage all off you to simplify your entire life. Simple=Better, in my opinion.

 

Yummy cherry tomatoes pasta recipe

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 150 gr pasta (75 gr/person is the recommended serving size). I had a mix of penne and fusilli
  • 300 gr cherry tomatoes. It’s tastier if you use the sweet type tomatoes.
  • 1 big spoon of pesto. Or more if you like it🙂
  • One clove of garlic
  • Fresh basil
  • Grana Padano or Parmigiano Reggiano or parmesan cheese.
  • Olive oil, salt and peper

Preparation

  1. Add at least 4 quarts of water to a large pot.When it starts boiling add a pinch of salt. Add the pasta and cook respecting the time indicated on the package. Stir from time to time.
  2. Immediately after you put the pasta to boil, heat 4-5  spoons of olive oil in a pan. When the oil begins to sizzle add garlic and the cherry tomatoes. Set your stove on medium heat and gently stir from time to time.
  3. When the pasta is boiled, strain the water. Put the pasta in the pan over the tomatoes, add the pesto, one spoon of parmesan and fresh basil.
  4. Serve the pasta while is hot, adding some more fresh basil and parmesan.

Bon appetite, my dears!

How great is that? :))

I will try to post a new recipe every Sunday, just in time for you to prepare lunch, so stay tuned! Today is about my healthy veggie tortilla wraps recipe, that is so easy to prepare and absolutely delicious! Also, it’s Instagram-friendly :))

Tips on wrapping the tortillas:

  • The bigger the tortilla, the easier making a tight wrap will be.
  • A warm tortilla makes the tortilla more pliable and easier to wrap. Warm the tortilla for about 10 seconds on each side. Don’t let it get crispy.
  • Don’t overfill it. Make more tortillas, instead.

Skirt outfit for today

Since I discovered that I can bike wearing a skirt, life is easier :)) I get to use all the old skirts hidden in my closet. Still, the high-heeled shoes get dustier every day. I don’t think I will ever go back to wearing high heels daily. So, this is my casual Friday look❤  An white Zara knit T-shirt, a veil skirt, white summer espadrilles from Primark and a lot of positive energy!

Enjoy your weekend, beautiful people!

Lots of hugs!

Use the leftovers to make a delicious pasta. Just boil some fusilli pasta (if you are not an expert, you can find here more instructions), then add the veggies cut in small pieces, a bit of olive oil and some parmesan. That’s all, you can’t get a more balanced meal, more tasty, more colourful or beautiful than that❤

Good appetite, beautiful people!
