Floral and Fantastic Flavouring

I must admit, it was slightly difficult to get back in the swing of things, but I am happily back to blogging after a small holiday and extended birthday weekend. There’s far too much to share, but overall it has been an incredibly wonderful summer so far.

If you’ve been following the blog for even a smidgen of time, then you've likely noticed by now that I am a foodie devotee. In the past few months, I have been challenging myself to cook, bake, and even use my kitchen tools a lot more … that is, when I actually set aside a designated time. Fortunately, even though I may not be near my own appliances at all times, I am thankful to have close friends that also host fun foodie nights just as I do, but in a different way.

Therefore, I recently took over one of their food processors and made homemade (all natural) frozen yoghurt for a delicious dessert. Their foodie nights are usually, a sort of potluck—each one of us does something: one-person helps with the main menu, one sets up and chooses the games, another may even be in charge of making all of the drinks, etc. My contribution was fruity dessert. I am not really a dessert person, so I thought a healthy and refreshing option was perfect. I made lemon-blueberry frozen yoghurt, and then raspberry-basil was the second option! Homemade dinner was a four-course seafood and veggie feast, I will share more pics later. 
Double Dipped Style:
I had forgotten about this outfit, so here it is … enter, sheer floral goodness! This printed jacket was a lot less delicate than I had expected, which was a good thing. I had seen a similar 3D print somewhere else in another colour, but much preferred the flatter version and shade here. It’s part sporty and casual, however I think the golden hardware and translucence made it a lot more modern and versatile. So, I just wore it out for a late lunch date, and then again on a weekend window shopping trip.

This time, matching the lavender colours (from the pastel eyeglasses and jacket print) was the unforeseen style element that just happened to work well together. Yes, even on a slightly balmy, partially sunny, and rainy type of day this floral had its moment to blossom!

How has your summer been so far? Can you believe that August is just around the corner!

  21. Isn't nice to do some homemade dishes and treats once in a while? I think it is a treat in itself :).

    I love lavender but i don't have very many outfits in them. Your top is a very pretty piece. The fabric and the floral print sure makes it even so much prettier. You look lovely.

    Coming back from vacation and b-day celebrations then trying to get back into routine is super hard! So good luck. I'm loving this idea of pot-luck dinners with friends. I think I need to employ something similar with my own. Your frozen yoghurt dessert looks divine! I've been meaning to try out something similar for so long now. Have to do it!

  36. Ahh...the statement earrings :) Love 'em. Sorry I'm combining my comment for a previous post--I love the canary yellow dress you were wearing ! I love yellow and definitely one of my favourite summer colours. I totally shun black when the sun is all out. Really suits you :) PS. I went for an eye test. Good news: still 20/20 vision. Bad news: I won't be able to wear yet statement reading glasses. Hahaha. Enjoy the rest of the week x
