Blackened Tilapia + Collard Greens

Once again Blackened Tilapia makes an appearance, it is so delicious that I don't even care that I'm a Recipe Repeat! This time I paired it with Collard Greens, which before this Recipe I had never had, cooked, or even heard of, however I was pleasantly surprised! Although they are on the bitter side, like Kale, I cooked them with some Garlic and Red Pepper Flakes, which helped cut the bitterness and add some flavor to a fairly tasteless superfood. With Vitamins such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Magnesium, Calcium, and Vitamin B6 this veggie may become a staple in my house! Check out the Recipe below:
1. Tilapia Fillet
2. Blackening Seasoning (Recipe Here)
3. Collard Greens - Chopped
4. Olive Oil - 2 Tbsp
5. Garlic - 4 Cloves Pressed
6. Red Pepper Flakes - 1 Tbsp
7. Water - 1/2 Cup

1. In a Frying Pan heat up half the Olive Oil then mix in pressed Garlic, letting cook for a couple of minutes or until fragrant.  Then mix in Red Pepper Flakes until fragrant. 
2. Place Collard Greens in Frying Pan and mix together with Olive Oil, Garlic, and Red Pepper Flakes. Then add in Water, put Frying Pan Lid on, and let steam for approximately 10 minutes on Medium-Low Heat.
3. In another Frying Pan heat other half of Olive Oil.
4. While Olive Oil is heating up, rub the Blackening Seasoning into both sides of the Tilapia Fillet.
5. Once Olive Oil is heated place the Tilapia in the Frying Pan, frying for 3-5 minutes per side.
6. Once both the Collard Greens and Tilapia have finished cooking, plate, and ENJOY! 😊

RosieHW is Pretty in Pink in LA

It is not very often I mention a model as one of my Best Dressed Celebrities, besides the Jenner and Hadid's of the world, but Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's ensemble at the Mechanic Resurrection Los Angeles Premiere was BEYOND! I mean this miss-matched fuchsia off the shoulder crop and pants with thigh-high slit and asymmetric skirt are the perfect combination and with that choker, WOW! Minimal jewellery, simple strappy gold sandals, lightly waved hair, a bold lash, and a bubblegum pink lip completed this outfit perfectly without overpowering her H2T look.

Olivia Palermo + Self Portrait = Sheer Perfection

I have loved Olivia Palermo's effortless style ever since she made her TV debut on MTV's "The City" 8 years ago. But since the show stopped airing in 2010 Olivia's style has carried on, making her one of the Fashion World's top Fashionistas! Lately, Palermo has been obsessing over designer Self Portrait, and common do we blame her. The intricate detailing, whether being embellishments, lace, netting, or sheer panels, is by far on a league of its own! Check out some of my favourite Olivia and Self Portrait fashion moments from the past couple months below.
(Left) Spotted out in Mykonos wearing Self Portrait's Balloon Sleeve Lace Panel Top and Zara Zebra Mini. (Right) Out and about in Paris wearing Self Portrait's Contrast Flounced Midi Dress.
(Left) Posing at the Pepsi Exhibition Opening in NYC wearing Self Portrait's Amelia Pleated Lace Dress. (Right) On vacation in Italy wearing Self Portrait's Anemone Guipure Lace Dress.

Cheesy Salmon, Broccoli, and Cauliflower Bake

Quite possibly my all time favourite Salmon Recipe to date. It was kind of a last minute meal, literally seeing what I could make out of what I already had in my fridge, also needed to incorporate Broccoli and Cauliflower so I didn't have to throw them out. I don't know what it is but Broccoli and Salmon go together so well, definitely my favourite Fish/Veggie Combo.
1. Salmon 
2. Broccoli
3. Cauliflower
Veggie Sauce:
1. Olive Oil
2. Garlic - Pressed
3. Parmesan Cheese - Grated 
4. Bacon Bits
Salmon Crust:
1. Laughing Cow - 4 Triangles
2. Almond Milk - 1/3 Cup
3. Grated Parmesan Cheese - 1/4 Cup

1. Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees F.
2. In a baking dish mix together Veggie Sauce Ingredients, before placing Broccoli and Cauliflower pieces in dish. Incorporate together, then sprinkle more Parmesan Cheese on top. Let sit while oven is pre-heating.
3. Place Veggies in oven and bake for 30-40 minutes, depending on size of Veggie pieces.
4. Mix together Salmon Crust Ingredients on stove top (medium heat) until creamy consistency, adding in more almond milk if needed.
5. Using a spoon, scoop and press mixture onto non-skin part of Salmon. Sprinkling more Parmesan Cheese on top of mixture to create a crust-like finish.
6. Salmon needs approximately 4-6 minutes per 1/2 inch to fully cook. Therefore, depending on the thickness of your Salmon Fillet, place in oven when Veggies have that much time remaining in oven. This way both Veggies and Salmon will finish baking at approximately the same time.
7. Let sit and cool for a couple of minutes before plating. Then ENJOY :)

Kim Has Never Looked Better

Kim Kardashian West made an appearance at Revolve's LA Social Club in West Hollywood on August 10th showing off her KILLER post-baby bod in a skin-tight mini dress and thigh-high peep-toe boots. Kim accessorized with a fray denim choker, which have brought a lot of negative opinions, however I love the look! For her hair and make-up Kim left it extremely natural looking with a simple centre-part low pony, nude lip, and bold lash. Probably one of Kim's best looks in an extremely long time!

Lea Puts The Queen In Scream Queens

Lea Michele hasn't moved very far from her previous role on Glee, as she is now in another show, Scream Queens, by the same producers. She walked the dusty-blue carpet at the Fox Party a couple nights back promoting the upcoming season of Scream Queens looking AMAZING! The flower applique overlay cocktail dress and metallic pink sandals were everything! Zero accessories were needed, along with simple loose waves and natural make-up allowed this stunning dress to be front and centre.
