Cooking // Scallops with caramelized onions sauce

scallops with caramelised onions recipe
I am sure that by now you have realised that I am a seafood lover! Fish and seafood are my weaknesses and I would be very happy to eat either of them everyday. I know many people dislike the smell of fish but to me it brings back childhood memories of summer days spent by the sea. So here's another recipe of my healthy eating series. Hope you like it!

Wishlist // The berry dress

Berry dress wishlist
2 // Sunglasses
3 // Earrings
4 // Candle
5 // Brogues
6 // Coat

I've had my eyes on a day to night dress since a Friday afternoon that I had to go from the office straight to drinks and was in my plain jeans and cotton t-shirt. So, I was more than happy when I saw this NEXT dress while window shopping earlier today. The colour is so striking and would pair well with either grey, brown or black colours. For this outfit I chose to pair it with this pair of Marks&Spencer silver brogues from their latest Twiggy for M&S collection. They are pointy-toed and so versatile! The plaid coat is a classic piece that never goes out of fashion and for $59 this is a great bargain. I am still debating as to whether I should buy this pair of brogues, as they are simply perfect on their own. I have a rule when it comes to buying something, if I dream of it then I will buy it...so time and dreams will show!

Would you ever wear silver brogues?

Love,
Anastasia

Cooking // Salmon in orange sauce with asparagus

Ηealthy eating, salmon and asparagus recipe
One of the dishes that I love to cook is salmon and asparagus in orange sauce; so quick, so tasty but beyond everything so healthy! On weekdays and when I come back from the office it takes me less than 30' to prepare and cook this dish and keeps me full for many hours. I do the orange sauce according to one of mum's old recipes and it's delicious! I can't recommend this recipe enough, especially if you are busy and also into healthy eating..
You will need:
salmon fillets
asparagus
1 chopped onion
juice of one orange
half glass of white wine
salt, papper, oregano
Ηealthy eating, salmon and asparagus recipe
Start by spicing up the salmon fillets with oregano, pepper and salt

Place them in a pan with a tiny bit of olive oil and let them fry both side until they get a nice golden brown colour and a bit of cripsy texture on top.

Next place the asparagus in a pan and sprinkle them with olive oil and salt. Let them roast for no more than 5' and make sure to turn them over.

To make the orange sauce stir fry a chopped onion with olive oil, salt and pepper. After 3' pour the glass of white wine and let it boil all together for another 3'. At the end add the orange juice and a little more salt and let until the sauce is united and has a thick texture.

To serve place the salmon fillets on top of the asparagus and add the sauce on top of the fillets. I love having rice and season salad as sides but fried potatoes work equally well!

Wishlist // The Weekender look

The weekender look
1. Jacket 

It's finally the weekend and I can't be any more happier about it!
This past two weeks have been a nightmare and I am so glad I am back on blogging and working mode :)
For the weekend I choose to dress casually, throwing up a cozy knit sweater, tights or leggings, high knee boots (that are currently missing from my wardrobe) and a dark colour lipstick.
I find this biker jacket a bit edgy but it looks great on this casual look, since there are not too many colours to outstand! Speaking of colours, the red wallet makes a great statement in the whole look and bits the winter greys (now if only I could afford it..)
What's your favourite weekend look?

Love,
Anastasia
