Tzatziki and crispy strips

 Yes, I know that this post is about food and it's not fashion related but I just adore cooking. 
So tonight I craved for this yogurt sauce that greeks call tzatziki (I miss #Greece also) and I made some crispy strips to go along with it.
The recipe is very simple so if you're not on a diet, you must try it.
For the tzatziki you will need:
  • 350 g greek yogurt (mine was 10% fat)
  • 1 fresh cucumber
  •  2 table spoons of olive oil
  • some garlic
  • 1 table spoon of lemon juice
  • salt & pepper
  • some dill (or even better 5-6 leafs of mint). 
Crispy strips require:
  • 500 g of chicken strips
  • 200 g cornflakes
  • 3 eggs
  • 5 tablespoons of wheat flour
  • salt & pepper
  • paprika (if you like).
  • 2 cups of oil (to fry).
For the tzatziki you will have to chop the garlic and then the cucumber into fine parts, get rid of the excess water that comes from this process (cucumbers as you know have a lot of water inside them but we want our sauce to be thick and creamy) and then mix all the ingredients together and we're done.
 Crispy strips are also easy to do : first salt & pepper the chicken strips, then mix them first with flour, then in the scrambeled eggs and then in the crushed cornflakes (use a food processor to make them into smaller pieces - not too small because we want our crust to be crispy). After that they are ready to go in the pan or fryer (well covered in oil) until they are done (the crust must be golden).
I served everything with frest toast.
See, it's so easy and I promise it's delicious too.
If you like this kind of posts, please let me know.
Till next time, guys.

Pink Spring

I'm waiting for spring and the last days I felt the need to wear pink again.
It's not a characteristic color for winter - I know, don't tell me, pink coats were a hit this season - but I'm talking about pink skirts, dresses and accesories, diaphanous silky fabrics, pastel pinks to remind me of the delicate flowers of spring.
So I went on my favorite online shops and selected for you some of the items that 
I really like and would love to wear them this spring. 
The combinations of colors that I use when I wear a pink item  are other pastel
 colors, white, black and light grey. I think those colors are a perfect match for pinks.







Hope you liked them as much as I did, kisses sweet girls!

Wedding dresses under $ 200 with ericdress

Let the wedding season begin.
I remember with great pleasure that a year ago I said "I do". Such an amazing moment, such a magical day.
But after that, the wedding plans became the next thing to do. And I searched for my perfect dress until I found it.
I didn't spend thousands of dollars on it, but it was so special, the fabrics were so good and the princess-type was my thing so I had to get it - like it was made just for me.
An important thing is to know which type of dress fits good for your body type: princess, A-line, ball-gown, mermaid and so on.
To make an idea I will list bellow some cheap wedding dresses (http://www.ericdress.com/list/cheap-wedding-dresses-75/) that I think are perfect and maybe you'll get an idea of what you would like to wear on that special day..
Wedding dresses under 200 (http://www.ericdress.com/list/cheap-wedding-dresses-2015-104431/)are such a bargain and you must take advantage of it.
For those of you that plan a beach wedding (and for my very special friend that will do so), I invite you to see some amazing cheap wedding dresses online (click here: http://www.ericdress.com/list/cheap-beach-wedding-dresses-3568/)
This one is amazing, love the sweetheart neckline, and the lace on the hands and also the shape of the lines that touches the floor. The crystal belt will make your waistline more defined.

Tartan classic Look / OPI Christmas got Plaid

Hello, darlings!
I'm enjoying this weather because it's not that cold - so I went and bought this beautiful green and dark blue scarf and I made a poncho from it, wrapping a belt around my waist - and it's not that hot so I worn my new beautiful and comfortable cable knit skirt in a dark camel shade.
To match the outfit I paired all with a gorgeous floppy hat - the fabric is like wool (very nice) and keeps me warm and protected from the wind.
For the last touch: camel clutch + boots and some cute green earrings.
But you must really see the nailpolish pictures too - a dark beautiful green from OPI called
Christmas got Plaid. I added two coats and I worn it for 5 days now and it's still in place. Isn't this a wonderful  color?
What do you think, would you wear this classic look?

Fashion Show Rochii de Seara Haute Couture by Catalin Botezatu si #fashionbloggersiniasi

Buna, fetelor!
Sambata,13 decembrie 2014, in cadrul unui eveniment amplu organizat de Palas Mall Iasi care a creat in atrium o perfecta atmosfera festiva de Craciun, designerul Catalin Botezatu a adus pe scena cea mai noua colectie cu rochii de seara Haute Couture by Catalin Botezatu.
In viziunea designerului, centrul show-ului de moda este femeia moderna, excentrica si dramatica, avand totodata eleganta anilor 30, constienta de calitatile ei si pregatita sa creeze patimi si pasiuni prin prezenta. Dar, totodata, neinfricata pentru a putea purta rochii ce acopera cu dantela pretioasa doar usor silueta inalta si filiforma.

Nu s-a facut rabat de la calitate asa cum ne-a obisnuit Catalin Botezatu ca de fiecare data, materialele fiind cu adevarat pretioase - dantela finisata mill pointe, voal de matase, broderie filigran, blana naturala paiete si pene.
Culorile predominante au fost elegantul negru si auriu, dar si accente de rosu, alb, portocaliu.
Femeia diva imaginata de designer este luxoasa,  adora petrecerile somptuoase, are coafura excentrica (realizata de Florin Cova) si un machiaj puternic in care ea se simte confortabil. Accentul machiajului s-a pus atat pe ochi si sprancene dar totodata si pe buze, colorate in rosu intens sclipitor.
Accesoriile mi-au placut in mod deosebit, fiind formate din manusi din piele scurte ce acopereau doar degetele, accesorizate cu inel statement - sau cele lungi in culori de rosu, negru sau aurii, si, deasemenea capele de blana.
La eveniment au fost prezente si cele mai reprezentative bloggerite de moda de la noi printre care amintesc Alina Ceusan, Ioana Chisiu, Carmen Grebenisan, Ioana Grama (pe care cu singuranta le stiti, daca nu, dati un search ca sa le cunoasteti) in cadrul unui eveniment numit Fashion bloggers in Iasi, menit ca ele sa cunoasca frumusetile Iasului si sa facem si noi cunostinta cu ele si ceea ce inseamna aceasta nisa noua profesionala creata care a prins contur in ultimii 2 ani si este in plina ascensiune si anume fashion blogging.
