Food Moments | Cheese, Mushroom and Kale Fritatta

Hi Guys,
This morning I decided to try something a little different for my breakfast, so I was looking around Pintrest for ideas, when I stumbled upon the idea of making a fritatta. I decided to experiment a little with the flavors, mostly just using what I had in the fridge, and ended up with this recipe which I thought I'd share with you all, because I really liked how it turned out.
I want to make a quick apology for my measurements in this post, because I didn't really weigh anything out, so it's rough measurements. The recipe made 12 mini fritatta's in a cupcake tin.

What You'll Need
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1/4 cups of milk (I used semi-skimmed)
  • A handful of kale
  • 10 mushrooms
  • Approximately 50g of cheese (I used mature cheddar)
  • Oil
  • Salt
Preheat your oven to gas mark 4 (350 F)
Start by chopping the mushrooms and the kale. Make sure it's finely chopped. Then grate the cheese and set all of these ingredients aside for now.
Take four eggs and crack them into a bowl, then add the milk and salt. Add the chopped vegetables and the cheese and mix it together until it's all combined.
Use the oil to grease each section of your cupcake or muffin tin. Make sure you get an even coating.
Divide the mixture into the tin and then put it in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes.
Serve warm and enjoy!

Fashion Moments | My Current Obsession

Emily And Fin Grey Floral Collar Dress £24.99Hi guys,
I wanted to write up a post about my current fashion obsession. I go to my local charity shops, and browse ebay a lot, because I love finding cool items at bargain prices.
Recently there's been one thing that I'm particularly obsessed with finding, and that is floral printed dresses, preferably with collars. Vintage is better, but vintage looking works well too. There are usually a few of these styles of dresses in charity shops, and I can't get enough of them.

floral print and collar

There's something I absolutely adore about this style. I love the delicate collars, the loose fitting dresses, and the way I can style them to be casual or dressy.

One thing I love to do, is wear a dress like one of these, with some black biker-ish style boots, and do a heavy black eyeliner with it. Giving the feminine dress a bit more of a rocker style to it. I love mixing these two things.

Things I Look For
  • Collars (especially lace or crochet)
  • Covered buttons (covered with the fabric of the dress)
  • Good quality
  • Vintage or vintage style
  • Pale floral prints on either a dark or light background
What are some of the things you're loving when it comes to fashion? If you go to charity shops or thrift store, what do you look for? Let me know in the comments.
