New year. New MEals.

So its a week into the new year and so far I have eaten as little meat as possible, I have been swapping meat for a vegetarian option when possible, also I was given an amazing spiralizer for Christmas which I have been using to swap spaghetti for spiralized vegetables with vegetarian bolognese sauce. I am feeling so good, I am less bloated, and I just feel so much better in myself. I would definitely recommend this ‘diet’ change for people who want to make a positive change in their lives this year, its not as hard as it sounds, and its super tasty. Ive also started making my own soups and I will be putting up recipes soon. I want to try at least one new meal a week and upload the recipe for you guys! I hope you enjoy this new journey with me.

   

  

  

  

  

Stay positive. 

  my goal for this year is to look after myself, look after my body, my mind and my soul. I want to become more positive and more outgoing and just take every chance I get to do something new. I am also going to try and incorporate more vegetarian meals into my diet and look after my body and my health. I just want to be the best person I can be. Not just for this year but for my future. I would really love the opportunity to create some commissioned artwork just to get my name out there, even small pieces, I want to create more craftwork whether it’s knitting or embroidery I am open to everything right now. If anyone has any projects for me to work on send me an email and we can work something out together. Jayde.trollope@gmail.com 
Let’s make this year the best. Together. Xo 

Shop dixi. 

Today I got my first ever Dixi package and even though it was only a few small things I treated myself to from their sales, I absolutely love them! I also never buy gold jewellery so this was a bit of a risk for me, they are perfect.

I got a brand new gold nose ring and some fake septum piercings to try, at first I was a little worries as my nose is pierced quite far back so I usually need quite a large nose ring, so I emailed them and they were so helpful but after playing around with it a little I managed to stretch it enough to fit into my nose, which is a huge deal as I usually have to buy a few before I find one that fits! I messaged them to let them know I had sorted it and they were so lovely!

The prices for their jewellery are so great and if I do say so way too cheap for such beautiful items! I am definitely going to be spending my christmas money on some more of their pieces, not to mention birthday money!

An all around success and I definitely want to order more from them! Delivery was free and super fast also. Plus how cute is their packaging!!! I need more asap!!!  here is there site for any of you that want to check it out…. Shop Dixi.  I know you wont be disappointed.

Uni Project.

Just a sneak peek into my latest artwork for my university course Final degree show as I am now in my final year of the Fine Art course. Any feedback would be great, thankyou. xo

Breakfast is served 

  For a slightly different breakfast option. I put my own spin on a recipe I found on buzzfeed for making Shakshuka a few weeks back, after finding that the recipe was quite simple, I decided to play around with the basics of the recipe and add my own touch.

Ingredients:

Tomato Passata

Chopped Cherry tomatoes (or normal tomatoes will be fine.)

Chopped pepper, I used a yellow pepper.

onions

garlic powder

basil

cumin

pepper

salt

cheese, feta works better but all I had was cheddar at the time.

and of course, Toast

Its basically a case of adding a little oil to a pan, frying up the onions and adding everything one at a time, you can add as much or as little as you like depending on how many people you are making this for, you can’t really go wrong as its a simple recipe of just lightly frying everything and then covering it over just to let it simmer a little more. I usually have butter on my toast but I found that eating this with dry toast works a lot nicer as the sauce itself is enough to soften up the bread.

garnish with cheese and enjoy
