It is going to be pretty foody on the blog this week. I tried out lots of new, easy recipes and am excited to share them with you. My strategy when it comes to trying out new recipes doesn't start with finding a good recipe, because I hate searching for ingredients in the store. What I usually do is go to Trader Joe's and just browse and pick out something that looks appealing. Later I will figure out how to make it :) This was the case with this "fake" ground beef. I am always happy to try out meat substitutes and usually they taste great. I like that this one was pretty much ready made. All I had to do was hollow out the pepper, add the vegetarian "beef" and pop them in the oven at about 400°F for 45 minutes. Tastes great!

I am a lady. I really am. But, on a hot summer day, I do not feel like crossing my legs at all times, even when I'm wearing a skirt (oops :)) So when I saw these cute high rise skorts, a mix between shorts and a skirt, I had found the perfect solution! I can look girly and cute, yet there will be no accidental Marilyn Monroe moment anymore! I especially like the high waisted skorts because I can wear them with crop tops. My favorites are from Urban Outfitters.

I have a lot of bags and I change them up all the time, but what stays the same is what I take with me on a daily basis. I never leave the house without my phone and my wallet. On a long day I also make sure to bring a healthy snack, some sunnies and my make up bag.

This was my first time watching the Oscars from start to finish. I thought Ellen was hilarious and the celebs looked gorgeous, as always. My favorite dress was definitely Julia Roberts' beautiful lace gown. I also loved the deep V on Lupita's dress. Wish I had an occasion to get all glamed up :)
I promised myself, in 2014 I would eat really healthy. So far I am doing well, except for one weakness: Donuts. I just can't get enough of them! So when I saw this cute PJ at Forever 21 it had to be mine. Not really sure what the saying "I donut breakfast" is supposed to mean, but it has a donut on it, so I love it :)

The advantage of working at an office where the average age is well over fifty, is the fact that I get introducded to hobbies I wouldn't have known of otherwise. One of my coworkers is an amazing calligrapher and when I saw some of his work, I asked him to show me how to do it. He introduced me to some of the basics and referred me to a few good books. I then started researching different writing styles and found that there is a modern twist to calligraphy. A seemingly effortless, yet gorgeous way of writing. I was especially impressed with Emily McDowell's greeting cards, This is exactly the style I am going for. Below you will find my first attempts on modern calligraphy and if you visit my pinterest board, you'll find lots of alphabets and inspiration for calligraphy. Have a nice weekend!

The Olympics are over, and instead of going for a clunky gold medal (which is sooo last season), I much prefer my delicate gold pieces. I still love my gold studs, because they go with everything, and I have been wearing a lot of simple gold rings and even above the knuckle rings.
Rings (in focus): H&M
Above the knuckle ring: Urban Outfitters
Aqua Chalcedony ring: Miaki
