Recently, for various reasons I have been trying to cut down my meat intake. My mum always worries about vegetarians who don’t supplement the iron, protein etc. they lack. So, I have started eating a lot more eggs. One of the reasons is also because I’m trying to be healthier. My boyfriend is pretty into his eggs and so he was giving me some food advice. He loves this egyptian bean dish called Fool. Which is made from fava beans… that also works great with eggs. I also recently bought the book by Michel Roux called Eggs. I would highly recommend it! Additionally I have found some great low calorie meals on British Lion eggs website – a great source of information abou types of eggs, quality of eggs, where eggs are produced etc.
As I’m a bit sick at the moment, I haven’t got any amazing recipes for you, but here is my delicious poached egg with the ripest, spreadable type of avocado on an english muffin. Add a dash of balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper and you are good to go!
Also, as I have been saying for months, I have been redoing my bedroom. I painted one of the walls this colour called petrol and I am completely in love with it. It’s not quite finished as I need to do another layer of paint I reckon, but the vibe is there!
So, the shelf is from ikea as are the brackets. I bought the brackets in black and then bought copper spray. Cheaper than finding copper brackets and they look like the real deal. I bought this sweet goat toy and sprayed it white to make it a bit more elegant and ornamenty. These “kissing” owls are actually candle stick holders, but I prefer them without. They along with the goat are from TIger. This beaaaautiful print is from Juniqe - a German shop that sells amazing prints! I have another one further down in this post.
My shelf of props, crockery, bakeware etc, is normally a complete mess. But I Have now brought some order to it, so that it can act as an actual feature in my room rather than a chaotic mess.
Now this cute copper shelf is part of an old clothing rail. I once again sprayed it copper, bought some little hooks and now I use it as a jacket rack/ decorative shelf. I just hung it with two nails at the top. HOW COOL IS MY CAP – got in from New York. Never actually had the guts to wear it, but it reminds me of me when I was 19. Maybe outgrown that style a bit, but still it acts as a great piece of decoration.
How cute is the hanging chopping board? This is from Tiger as well, but it’s way too pretty to use, so I just hung it with a nail again.
My mood board. Solange and M.I.A are my beauty icons. The rest is just photos of loved ones, baking and things that make me smile.
I adore this vase from Otto, it’s really modern. Normally vases in white aren’t my thing, but I love the geometric shapes here!
