Amazing Photo & Picture Gallery Walls

Last week I talked to you about my kitchen reorganising, whilst I`m finishing that little project, there`s free time to get inspirations for some new ones. One of the things I always wanted in my home is a gallery wall decorated with photos or pictures, or possibly even both separately or mixed. Or maybe just a part of a wall? Images of a instagram photo wall may be popping up in my mind as well. OK, I suppose you got it, I`m still very indecisive. Whereas I`m deciding what I really want in my home, let me share a few picture & photo wall ideas.

Yellow Hokkaido & Romanesco Curry

yellow hokkaido & romanesco curry

Squash in spring, are you going nuts! That`s probably what you guys are thinking right now. Well let me explain, I`m one of these persons, who like to freeze things, especially those ingredients that aren`t easy to get throughout the whole year. Just like that, this little hokkaido survived autumn & winter season and got discovered in the freezer a few weeks ago. Now I just needed an inspiration on what to do with it, which turned out to be pretty easy, found a delicious recipe for a squash & romanesco curry in this recipe book.
After trying it,I loved it so much, just had to share it with you. 

Ingredients (make about little bowls)
  • 1 onion
  • 500g frozen romanesco-vegetable-mix
  • 250g hokkaido 
  • 180g single cream 
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper
yellow curry with hokkaido & romanesco

First prepare your vegetables, finely chop the onion and cut the squash into little sticks. Heat some olive oil in a pan, add onion and curry powder, mix well. As soon as the onions get translucent add the romanesco and let cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Pour in 1 1/2 to 2 dl water, add the hokkaido sticks and let simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.
Season with salt & pepper, add single cream and just heat until your curry has the perfect temperature. Serve and enjoy!

Curry is just one of the yummiest things on the world, probably never get enough of it.
What about you? Curry obsessed or not?

Budapest Hotel is where I want to Stay

great movie: The Grand Budapest Hotel

Sorry for posting with delay, but yesterday I didn`t manage to upload this, so it`s kind of movie Monday on a Tuesday, but I guess you could get over it right? At least I hope so!
Anyway let`s talk about movie stuff, that`s what movie Monday is all about. 

Several weeks ago, I watched "The Grand Budapest Hotel", that`s also quiet the same time frame I`m dreaming about staying in a 30ies decorated hotel. Just like the one in the movie, which I can`t get enough off. My dream would only be outdone if the staff also would be 30ies inspired. Besides my little obsession with the set, decoration and costumes of this very movie, I have to say it`s also absolutely entertaining, with a good storyline and a touch of tragedy as well, although not in the most obvious way. Wes Anderson has done a great job, now I kind of want to see more of his films.

Aside from trying to convince you to watch "The Grand Budapest Hotel", I got a few other little updates... 
Also watched "Into the Woods" and I have to say costumes, make-up and set are really great, but the movie, in terms of the storyline, didn`t convince me. Sadly no thumbs up for this one, sry...
Same goes to Season 5 final of Pretty Little Liars! So disappointed, mainly because it got kind of irrational in the end. 
That´s about it for this weeks cinematic post, except you would like to recommend some movies???

1. pastel color eyeshadow palette, 2. mint green nail polish, 3. rose lip gloss, 4. creamy rose eyeshadow crayon, 5. St.Lucia lilac nail polish

Whilst fall and winter are made for dark and smokey colours, spring and summer are all about pop up colours, well and a lot of glow, especially in summer. So is there any better time to freshen up your cosmetic case, than right now, when nature is getting colorful again. Indeed nature can be a great inspiration, also for make-ups, don`t you agree? I for example love the colours of blooming spring flowers and trees and like to implement the range of colours on my make-ups. 

That`s what inspired me to write this post, besides that I wanted to show you my favorite products and colour palette for spring.
