Pineapple, Apple & Cinnamon Oatmeal With a Touch of Flax Seed

So, have you heard of the latest trend on “Instagram” and “Pinterest”? It’s called “Superfoods”, and it’s about doing all kinds of fun, nutritious and beautiful looking recipes so you can add some sort of artsy touch to your meal time.

What do you think? Have you tried it? I did today! And this is what came out:

PinneAppleCinnamon_Oatmeal

INGREDIENTS

- 1/2 cup of oatmeal

- 1 cup of milk

- 1 teaspoon of flax seed

- 2 tablespoons of apple sauce

- 2 pinches of cinnamon

- 1/2 cm slice of pineapple

In a small pot, pour the milk and add the applesauce and the oatmeal. Mix and wait until it becomes creamy. Serve. Decorate with chopped pineapple, flax seed and cinnamon. Enjoy!

The best part of it is that it doesn’t have any extra sugar, just the one on the applesauce!  Better than honey or brown or white sugar. The chunks of pineapple give every bite juiciness and freshness and the flax seed helps your digestion, without mentioning the nutritional value of this little fella.

Personally, I love to eat oatmeal as breakfast, I can’t imagine a better way to get my day started than with such a yummy dose of fibre and basic vitamins.

What do you think? Would you try it out! If you do, send me your pics to my twitter account: @roaringyellow !

And if you have some nice superfood recipe, please send it so I can try it out and publish it on the blog, alright?

Have a nice day, you guys! See you soon!

All the love, all the best.

Napsugar Von Bittera: Bittersweet Fashion For Bittersweet Gals

I love novelties: there’s no pleasure like innovation, I believe, and that’s why Napsugar Von Bittera’s latest collection (Autumn-Winter 2014) just took my breath away.

Ok, maybe it didn’t take my breath away, but after seeing some of the pics of the runway show I just couldn’t stop thinking about it, so I decided to write it down instead.

What should we know about NVB?

-       It’s a Hungarian 5 year-old brand

-       The designer used to build garments for films (pretty awesome, huh?)

About the collection:

-       Laser-cut leather pieces (to die for)

-       Main colour palette: black, blue, white

-       White chemises are the key to success – a classic!

-       Conventional clothes with an unconventional touch to create a memorable outfit

My faves:

Me? Ordinary? I Don’t Think So: Ann Demeulemeester SS2014

Honestly speaking, I think wanting to be noticed is a natural thing; but remember, be seen for the right reasons. For example, a daring outfit.

Classics are trend less, timeless, eternal; innovation is leadership, dictating trends, being a role model. The latest thing is what Ann Demeulemeester’s Spring- Summer Ready-To-Wear Collection is all about.

M A I N     C H A R A C T E R I S T I C S:

- Asymmetry

- Florals

- Contrast: Stiff & Heavy VS Soft & Ethereal

- Colour palette: Black, White, Red

Enjoy!

Hear Me Roar!: Monclare Gamme Rouge Spring – Summer 2014 Collection

Paris Fashion Week is loaded with grateful surprises, and Monclare Gamme Rouge’s latest collection is one of them.

MGR’s proposal takes animal print to the next level: animal texture.

MGR’s designers are aware that their key component may be a bit too much, that’s why the cut of the garments is somewhat kept simple.

Remember, balance is the key.

MGR’s Spring – Summer Ready – To -Wear 2014 Collection is defined by:

- Animal Print (Texture!)

- Minimalistic Cuts

- Waist (High Waisted Cuts, Belts)

- Legs showing

- Flats with strings (YES! FLATS!)

- Vertical Zippers

- Vests

Take a look and tell me what ya think! ; )

Haute Couture For Better Times: Vionnet Fall – Winter 2013/4

If there’s something that ALWAYS makes me feel better is fashion; more specifically, haute couture. I don’t know, it makes me think (and believe) that better times will come.

Here, I present you my medicine garments for a rainy day. These are the best looks according to myself of Vionnet’s Fall – Winter 2013/4 Haute Couture Collection.

I summarise this collection in three words: leather, pleats and majesty.

Which one’s your fave?
