I hope you all have a fantastic Friday. Friday’s for me is not as exciting anymore. It’s the last day of uni for the week. Which means work Saturday, Sunday and Monday. That’s the life of a fashion student yo.
Also happy first day of May!
This is a cool series of doco’s called The Day Before. I’ve actually, now watched them all!
I feel like I’ve posted this here before but I’m not sure. It’s just a quick watercolor painting I did.
Me. Pardon all the selfies in this Foto Friday. You’ll notice I’ve bought a new red lipstick and I totally love it.
I went to the Night Market and had one of these yummy spirally potatoes. And of course some Sangria.
Some gouache painting of the colour wheel.
Me in my red lipstick. I’ve noticed it makes my hair look more blonde than usual!
Lots of buttons at Jimmy Buttons.
Lots of trims too. I had the urge to start tidying up for them while I was there, but I resisted. The lady actually lost her keys while I was there. I have no hope that she was able to find them :/
My friend Ashy’s hat. So super cool.
I found this at work. I think the other girl did it, maybe something to do with the shirts we sell having thread treads. I clothes are made in china so maybe I’m thinking that’s why its translated. No idea.
My outfit of the day for uni yesterday. The red lipstick makes things more exciting.
This is my latest book club read, and I just realised I haven’t updated you on book club. I like this picture of Patti.

Hope you’ve all had a great week and hope you have an amazing weekend. Much love. Juliet x
Who doesn’t love selfies? I sure do :p

The recipe is from the book; “The eat, drink, and be gorgeous project.”
Kale is the new potato! These light and crunchy “chips” are practically guilt-free.
2 bunches kale, rinsed with stems removed
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
3tbsp olive oil
1tsp salt (or less, as desired)
Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Cut the kale into 2-to-3-in/5-to 7.5cm pieces. In a large bowl, combine the vinegar, olive oil, and salt. And the kale and toss by hand until all the leaves are covered. Evenly distribute the kale among the prepared baking sheets and bake for 20 minutes, or until the leaves are crispy. If the chips are not sizzling or crispy yet, turn up the heat to 200 degrees Celsius and bake for a few minutes more. Baking time varies depending on the size of your chips and desired crispness; note that the outer edges cook quicker than the pieces from near the stem. The chips are best if enjoyed immediately, but can keep overnight in an airtight container in the fridge.
I only made half the recipe, so one bunch. I ate half of that for lunch with some chicken. They turned out super delicious. I just need to make sure they’re crispier next time, the ones in the middle of the tray weren’t as crispy as they should be, but they were still good enough to eat. Yum. I think I’d prefer these over salt and vinegar potato chips from now on.
Today was my last day at my corporate job. I have three weeks off until I start my new course. I’m a bit scared but I’m a lot excited.
