The Vintage Pearl Textured Coat – Collectif Clothing – REVIEW

missfp

Where do I even begin? The Pearl coat has got to be one of my favourite reproduction pieces I have ever come across. I lusted over it for 3 years and last year on Valentine’s Day my boyfriend surprised me with one (all of the boyfriend points to him) – I was in D-I-S-B-E-L-I-E-F. The pearl coat for a long time was this unattainable thing; a. I’m pretty sure there wasn’t anything like it on the market e.g the Hell Bunny coats that are very similar but more affordable didn’t exist, b. no one in New Zealand stocked it – like no one and lastly c. it was over $300 so if you got it you would be pinged with a customs fine! I genuinely believed I would never own one.

Quick & Easy Spicy Udon Noodles – VEGAN RECIPE

IMG_6145

Seeing as last week it was all about fashion I thought I’d share a recipe this week – a recipe I love and make quite often too! If you follow me on Instagram (@missflossypots #shamelessplug) you will have seen these noodles all of the time. They’re super easy to make, you only need a few base ingredients (& you can add tons of things to change it up) & it’s vegan! I’ve never been a huge fan of noodles but these honestly have so much flavour; using fresh ginger and adding tons of sriracha really gives it another dimension! These noodles are 100% inspired by Tastemade they have an awesome video tutorial too, if you would like to check it out – click here.

Mahina Skirt from Cry Cry Cry Clothing – REVIEW

Mahina Skirt - CryCryCry Clothing - Miss Flossypots - 5

Well I’m back with another Cry Cry Cry feature because I am the ultimate fan girl. This week I want to speak about the latest piece from Cry Cry Cry clothing – The Mahina Skirt.
Fran contacted me last month asking which fabric/print colour I would like and of course I went for the Palm and Orchid print (because PINK) which has now been gifted to me. But then I saw the Hibiscus on purple and I knew I had to buy one myself…

Cookie Dough Bites! In Chocolate… Vegan Recipe

5

A month ago I came across this amazing Instagram; ginabnutrition and it seriously changed my vegan baking LIFE. Ginabnutrition has the most innovative recipes I have come across in a long time – it has totally inspired my baking life and I have never felt more motivated to create amazing treats without dairy and egg! I highly recommend checking out her Instagram and her blog for more delicious-ness and inspiration. I made the No Bake Brownie Bites (which a gluten free AND vegan) from her website and they were ah-mazing! We literally couldn’t stop eating them #foodforlife. And as I was eating them I thought ‘What if I left out the cocoa and dipped them in chocolate?’ more like cookie dough than a brownie and with a chocolate snap! I advise you to put them in the freezer for a really cold dessert & for a better snap but you can keep them in the fridge! These are completely vegan, very easy to make and utterly delicious.

VEGAN – Chickpea & Sweet Potato Curry

IMG_2408

Brrrr.. it’s getting cold!!! This week in New Zealand the temperature has dropped and we have had thunder, lightening and tons of rain. Walking home in the dark (because it’s pretty much dark at 5-6pm now!) and all I crave is something warm and filling. So I created this delicious, spicy and super filling curry/stew – I liked it so much I knew I had to share with all of you! In autumn/winter we start losing all of our summer vegetables or they start tasting like rubbish so I picked foods that we all have in our cupboards and that aren’t super seasonal. A can of chickpeas, diced tomatoes – stock cubes, spices.. these are things we have around the house most of the time. I personally LOVE root vegetables – they’re so hearty, versatile and affordable and I pretty much always have them in my kitchen – notice a theme here?? Again, this recipe is completely vegan and going forward on my blog I’m aiming to keep recipes vegan or dairy free as that’s working for me and my body at the moment. 🙂

The Lyra Dress – Lady V London – First Impressions

IMG_5284

Well I’m back with another Lady V London review but this time it’s different! This time I’m calling it a first impressions review, I’ve seen this idea in Youtube videos and I’m sure there have been many blog posts but I’ve never done this before! This week I’ll share my first impressions on the Lady V London Lyra Dress in the Summer Cherish print; what I like about it, why I purchased it, how it feels and the fit – like a review but without the commitment, ha!
As you saw from my previous Lady V London review I had wanted a Lyra dress for a long time but as far as I knew they were only in sizes 16 + but thankfully Lady V London recently released the Lyra dress in a size 14!  But what had really sold it to me was my best friend Xamia Arc buying her first Lyra (in Leopard – read her post here); once she told me she had bought hers I bought mine the next day! She’s such an enabler but she’s always right about these things! Continue reading “The Lyra Dress – Lady V London – First Impressions”
