Bells of Holly

Totally living for this bell sleeved strapless top from Tobi!

It’s trendy, it’s easy to wear and it’s perfect for this time of year! Even with these bell sleeves it’s still super simple to throw on a jacket, like this metallic green one.

And of course I had to throw in the shorts for that Floridian style.

Palm Trees and Summer Breeze

Took a little stroll down Española Way, in Miami Beach. Obsessed with the palm leaf trend and this dress is perfect for the South Beach culture!
Española Way is one of my favorite places to walk down. It feels like I'm back in Spain exploring the new restaurants and hidden secret spots. Definitely a place to visit if you're ever in the area and want some authentic Spanish food.

Miami Wandering

cropped-val4.jpg

In case you didn’t know, I’ve moved to Miami Beach for the next couple of months and could not be more excited! Two things you will learn very quickly: 1. the night is never over in Miami and 2. it’s a foodies paradise.

And what better way to start out this new adventure than with a bright, colorful image to greet the visitors of AroonMelane. Shoutout to this random apartment building that kept their hedges trimmed and grass green.

Healthy Greek Kale Quinoa Recipe

Healthy Greek Kale Quinoa Recipe

I am usually not the biggest fan of quinoa all by itself, but I had a huge bag in the pantry and needed to find a way to use it up. After searching Pinterest for ideas, I found the most delicious and super healthy quinoa dish!

I doubled up on the recipe, as I like to have a bunch for my roommates and I to eat for the next few days. But the recipe below serves 4.

This is one of my new favorite recipes, as it only took 15 minutes to make and it is sooooooo yummy!

  Ingredients:

2 cups of water

1 cup of quinoa

1 cup of baby kale, stems removed

1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered

1/2 cup cucumber

1/4 cup of minced onion

2 tbsp kalamata olives

1 tbsp of cilantro or parsley (chopped)

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

1/8 tsp himalayan salt

1/8 tsp pepper

feta cheese

Instructions:

  • Cook quinoa. Add water and quinoa into medium pan, bring to boil. Turn stove top to low heat and let quinoa cook for 15 minutes, or until desired texture.
  • While your quinoa is cooking gather all of your vegetable and chop up. Mix all veggies in large bowl.
  • In separate small bowl mix together your dressing. Olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  • Stir dressing in with vegetable.
  • Add quinoa once cooked and stir thoroughly.

You can eat this dish hot or cold, its just as delicious either way!

And feel free to switch up the veggies or take certain ones out if you are not a fan.

Let me know if you recreate this recipe and how you like it!

New Years Eve Outfit and Giveaway

New Years Eve Outfit and Giveaway

I can not believe it is almost 2015! From the end of November tiil the start of the new year is when everyone is rocking the sequins. It is the time of year when you can go all out, and why not start the new year with a bang!
Today I have found a few of my favorite looks for this new year, and they are all centered around a gorgeous gold Rolex men’s watch. I was recently introduced to a very neat company called Invaluable, a site where you can actually bid of an array of luxury items from pretty much all of the designers out there, including this gorgeous mens watch. And though this watch may be a mans watch, any confident lady could totally rock it!

One can never go wrong with an all black dress on New Years, the sequins are festive and the low neck line adds a lot of glam to the outfit. This would be a great outfit if you are going to a nice dinner with your significant other or maybe even a nice office party. Paired with some high black heels and the gold Rolex watch would finish off the look. (Shop here)

Yes everyone knows that black and gold are the go to colors for this time of year. But adding a pop of color is fun and will stand out against everyone else at the party! A great look for a night with friends or family. This would also look great with a big gold watch and some high gold heels.

If you are not into the super sparkley holiday outfits than this might be the one for you. You do not have to be sparkling to get all the attention in the room. This all white outfit is sure to be an eye catcher against all the black dresses this year, and this look can be used for any plans you have that night. Gold accessories are a must for this! (Shop here)

This is probably my favorite outfit of the bunch! The sheer black top adds a bit of sexiness to the outfit, but the long sleeves and pockets tone it down just the right amount. Pair this with the gold watch and some heels and you are ready for the night.
