Leopard Timelessness

Hello Friends!

To say we’ve been busy would be a huge understatement! Between our photo biz and Theo Shane I’ve had zero time to do anything. And May is only shaping up to be even busier. But it’s my Birthday Month so that’s exciting.

*pours glass of champs*

I’m back this Monday with The Dior Fashion Word of the week!

Now obviously in this case Dior is talking about actual fur. Which for me I’m only a faux fur girl. But one thing is absolutely for sure about this amazing print is that it’s not going anywhere.

Leopard is hands down my favorite print. It’s versatile and always stylish. I have a lot of it in my closet so it was a little hard as to which to feature but I thought my leopard blazer was perfect. Since I’m always on the go and somethings need to grab an outfit and run a blazer can always save the day.

This was on a shoot and I always like to look out together when I’m working even if I have to be moving a lot or holding Theo, so this was the perfect piece to add to the look. The best part about leopard is that it goes with just about everything!

Enjoy the final days of April!

As far as I’m concerned, leopard is a netural

Savory Stickers

So here’s what happened…

There I am sitting (for a very brief moment) on the couch watching The Kardashians. They were out to eat and were ordering Pot Stickers. I immediately think I need potstickers NOW! I jump off the couch, find a recipe, and make them. 

Within minutes I had the dough made and “resting”.

To make the dough: 

What you need: 

10oz flour

5oz boiling water

1 tsp salt

What you do: 

I used a food processor. Simply pulse the salt and flour so it’s mixed, then slowly add the boiling water and mix until it clumps up. Then, move it to a floured countertop and knead for about 2 minutes. It shouldn’t be sticky but soft. Make a ball and put in a plastic bag and get out as much air as possible. Let it rest for an hour. 

After that make sure your counter is very floured and use a rolling pin to roll out the dough and using a large round cookie cutter make your circles. Then, fill the middles (I used carrot matchsticks, shrimp, purple cabbage, and Portobello mushrooms), and pinch the edges. I tried to make mine look pretty but failed. It was my first time after all.

 Once you have them filled and pinched, add a splash of oil to a pan and let them cook until the bottoms are brown. Then, immediately add 1/4 cup water and reduce heat to medium. Let them steam for about 10 minutes or until the water is evaporated.

Serve and enjoy!

p.s. thanks Kardashians!😂

Pretty Pastels

Hey, Friends!

Honestly, I don’t own a lot of purple but I do have a couple pieces I really love.

Especially for Spring.

Sometimes I find myself giggling at what Dior says like using the word “danger” for owning a garment of clothing. However I do agree that you can get tired of it which is why I don’t own that much of this color.  But when I pull out my lavender spring coat it feels so fresh! When you wear purple I always say either stay on the same side of the color wheel or total opposite. For example, I’ve paired this coat with a yellow bodysuit. For this look though, I’m madly in love with this soft peach scarf and love how it complimented the lavender.

Here is to a wonderful and hopefully warmer week!
