While I know everyone talks about colour and incorporating colour into their wardrobe diet, some of you will begin to notice a lot of my closet consists of outfits in black paired with pops of colour i.e. shoes, jewellery, handbag, makeup etc. Basically Black outfits are my favourite. Particularly in the sombre mood I am in for about 6 months of the year, I.e. WINTER -40 weather and just plain old grey days outside.
Today, feeling a little under the weather (after the heaps of snow we received yesterday) I decided nothing would make me feel better than to wear black. So here goes again another photo shoot with my photographer Julie. Yet another embarrassing display of vanity? I think yes…this feels absolutely absurd….As you can tell the picture is yet again stiff and uncomfortable and the best picture we took came out a bit blurry :(

My story for today involves me going to the 10th floor to visit a friend for coffee. Rachel was kind enough to lend me her French Press for the entire week and supplied me with the most aromatic coffee I have had the pleasure to sniff in eons! Minding my own business, I was relishing in my new spoils when at the elevator two girls who worked in the mailroom chatted me up saying how I looked really nice (what a great compliment!) because the higher up they went in floors, the better the dressing got. SO the conversation continued until I told them I worked on the THIRD floor and we all burst out laughing. I thought it was cute : )
On the topic of sharing and giving. Another phenomenal woman gave me a recipe for a chickpea sweet potato curry. I slightly modified her version so it could be part of my crazy competition dieting so here goes the recipe and a picture to prove how delish it truly was.
Coconut Chickpea and Sweet Potato Curry
1 bag pearl onions
1.5 cups sweet potato (peeled and chopped) - you can now get peeled and chopped sweet potato
1.5 cups turnip squash (Peeled and chopped - ditto
1 can chickpeas (drained and washed)
1 TSP Paprika
1 TSP Cumin
1 TSP Coconut Milk Powder
Cilantro/Corriandre to taste
1 TBSP Pataks Spicy Curry Paste
Served with Fluffed Quinoa
C’est tout pour Moi!
