BUTTER CHICKEN ANYONE?

Yes, I’m a foodie & proud of it! Indian is definitely at the top of my list – it just wakes up my taste buds & keeps me wanting more. Out of all the delicious Indian dishes, butter chicken must be my favorite. I’ve been telling myself that I will try to make it forever, but I always thought it to be too complex to make. Well, I was wrong. I looked up the easiest recipe I could find online & got busy in the kitchen. Here is the recipe I used : http://allrecipes.com/recipe/easy-indian-butter-chicken/ And here are the ingredients: I…

SPORTY CHIC

HOT TREND ALERT: Comfortable yet dressed up, isn’t that every girl’s dream? Put those leggings away ladies & opt for something different this summer – the jogging pant transformed into a trouser!

DENIM ON DENIM

I’ve been seeing the denim on denim trend all over the place (magazines, TV, work, everywhere) & so I decided to give it a go! I must say, I love it!  The trend looks best when it’s two shades of denim rather than the same shade, in my opinion. It’s just such an easy outfit – you throw on two pieces of denim together & you pair them with a fun shoe. A leopard print flat ads visual interest for a look that is both polished & well put together. What do you ladies think? Denim shirt – G by…

ONE TOP – 5 WAYS

Pastels are one of the biggest trends this Spring/Summer (if one of these seasons decides to make an appearance sometime soon…) and I decided to try a light yellow color for a change. I don’t usually wear yellow, so I thought I would try something new. I ordered this shirt online from Sheinside and when it arrived I wasn’t really sure what to pair it with. It was wrinkled but the iron did the trick :) Turns out the shirt is very versatile & goes with pretty much everything. I decided to create 5 different looks with some of the…

MILITARY GREEN PARKA

It’s April and it’s still snowing! Needless to say I was really happy when I received this military green parka from Sheinside to keep nice and warm. I dressed it down with a plaid shirt & jeans for a relaxed weekend look, but it would also look great with a dress – I’m thinking a white dress….(idea for another outfit, wink wink) I’ve been looking for a parka like this for a while – couldn’t decide whether I rather PU sleeves or a faux fur hood, but I decided to go with the faux fur & I’m happy with my…

SALARY NEGOCIATION

  There may be countless reasons why we leave one job in pursuit of another; career aspirations, passion, interest, re-location, etc. However, for the most part, salary is at the top of the list. Sure, you want to advance your career, but salary & advancement most often go hand in hand. Once you have found ‘the one’ & the interview process is finalized, HR or hiring manager will most likely ask you the magic question: what is your salary expectation? Now, let there be no confusion, if you are being asked this question, you most likely already got the job.…
