Citron Stripes

Hey Loves! The cooler weather was here for a minute and now we are having a heatwave. I was enjoying the cooler weather because   I am ready to wear some cute winter attire. I am not one of those people that dresses like I am going to a funeral just because it's fall.
I love bold colors and incorporate those into my winter looks. The outfit I am wearing is a nice blend of colors, and layers.  I have always loved stripes and often incorporate them into many of my outfits and in this outfit, I simply tied my long sleeved striped shirt over my shoulders for a carefree look . 

This vibrant citron shirt looks yellow depending on
 how the sun hits it. Do you like to wear bright colors even when it's not spring or summer? I think they look great paired with neutrals

The color citron is like a big burst of sunshine:-)

Have an amazing day!

Cauliflower Shrimp Fried Rice

I have a weakness for good food and most of the time what I crave is not healthy, but this Paleo Friendly,Gluten free, Low carb treat is the perfect fake out for that fattening Chinese Takeout. What if I told you that Cauliflower fried rice tastes almost identical to the real thing? Let me say it again. Cauliflower fried rice tastes just life real fried rice.  Low carb, delicious and full of flavor.  

Instead of regular rice, riced cauliflower is stir fried with fresh veggies and shrimp to create a masterpiece that can rival your favorite Chinese take out fried rice. Vegetables and seafood. The perfect way to eat healthy and feel like you are cheating. You can also make this completely vegan by skipping the shrimp.  All of the flavor and none of the guilt. This is so good that I ate it three days in a row. Cauliflower is such a versatile vegetable because it takes on the flavor of whatever you cook it with. 

How awesome is that!

With so many great things to make with cauliflower, I've gone a little cauliflower crazy lately. If you missed my delicious pizza made with cauliflower crust, check it out here.  

For this dish, you can use fresh head of cauliflower and rice it yourself or you can buy riced cauliflower in the frozen section of the grocery store. Trader Joe's has a great riced cauliflower in the freezer section, but it sells out pretty fast, so when you see it, grab it quick.  Are you ready to make some delicious Cauliflower Shrimp Fried Rice? Lets go!

This will take you 20 minutes or less. And you will need soy sauce, sesame oil, fresh veggies and your choice of meat. I love to use shrimp or chicken.

Use uncooked cleaned and deveined jumbo shrimp, and chop some onions

Garlic, white onion and green onion add a great depth of flavor

Saute your garlic and onions until translucent and 
then add the shrimp

Add your veggies

Add your eggs and scramble on the side of the skillet and then incorporate into the cauliflower, shrimp and veggies

And Voila! Cauliflower Shrimp Fried Rice

2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 minced garlic cloves
1/2 cup chopped white onion
1/2 cup chopped green onion 
8 oz of  uncooked shrimp cleaned and deveined 
1/2 cup peas and carrots
1 Bag of riced cauliflower (or 1 medium head of cauliflower if you prefer to rice it yourself)
2-3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 eggs beaton
salt and pepper 
Heat the sesame oil in a skillet or wok. Saute the garlic and onions for a couple of minutes and then add the shrimp and cook for a minute (it will start to turn pink). Stir in the cauliflower and stir fry, add the peas and carrots to the side of the skillet, mix it into the cauliflower and continue stir frying, stir in the soy sauce and then move to the side of the skillet and scramble the eggs on the other side of the skillet. Combine the eggs into the cauliflower and shrimp.
Bon Appetit!

Orange Skittle

Hey Loves! I have been missing in action for a long time. Three months to be exact. I just didn't feel like blogging and wanted to focus on other things in my life, but I am back! It is fall and we are still having summer weather, so these are recent summer photos that I never posted. 

There is nothing like a burst of color and this vibrant orange dress makes me feel like a skittle:-)  This shirt dress has been getting heavy rotation in my closet because it is to easy to style and wear different ways. I have worn it paired with nude shoes and accessories and I recently wore this with a pair of vibrant multicolored strappy sandals. This can easily be winterized by pairing with boots and a scarf.

Dress: H&M, Clutch: Target, Sandals: JC Penney old)

I think gold always looks great against orange, but I decided to pair with silver and pewter accessories

Have an amazing day!
