Casual Leopard Dress.

I'm  not a biggest fan of casual leopard print for office as I think it's hard to style it appropriate. With this dress there was no doubt, grey tones and denim are dream combination, even with the leopard hint it's still appropriate for casual Friday's. Tortoise jewellery matched here perfectly and simple black loafers make this look "down to earth".

Few news from my everyday life, if you follow me on Instagram (@fashionedlazy) you know that recently we celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary and I couldn't be happier since that day I said "I Do!".
Other than that our celebration was a little bit ruined by my strange severe allergy on mosquito bites, so now I have 1 or more week without shorts and skirts (too bad :( ).

Dress: Armani Exchange from Asos, Denim bolero: Mango (darker here) Similar items here.

Ready to Bake Red Velvet Cupcakes.

Past weekend I've bought this ready to bake Red Velvet cupcake mix and decided to try them not from the scratch, but pre made. This turned out in a good bite-then-eat-them-all experiment, which made our whole family happy :)

I've used this Gourmet Red Velvet Cupcake Mix, which I've bought in Home Sense (TJX) probably you can find this type of mixes in Winners or Marshals too, it will have reduced price so your cravings for sweets won't be very expensive.

Add some cream or icing on top and it will be the same as on the box. Add some grounded almonds on top and you'll have original solution for those people who don't like icing (like I do).

It's very easy to cook them.

First preheat the oven to 350F and line muffin pan with paper baking cups.
Then mix contents of pouch with 2 large eggs, 50 ml oil (I used olive oil and next time will use half of what is recommended) and 160 ml water in mixing bowl.
Blend all ingredients and fill baking cups 2/3 full. Bake 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in centre of cupcake comes out clean. Once baked remove them from pan and allow to cool completely.
If you will add grounder almonds you can do it before baking the cupcakes.
If you'll add icing do it only after cupcakes will be completely cool.

Metallic Oxfords style.

From the moment I saw them on Target website I couldn't wait to have and wear them. Unfortunately for Canada the things that you see on the web not necessarily present in stores so I had to wait for my US friends visit and my shiny shoes :)
They are really comfortable and so soft that when I walk I think that I'm wearing leather mocassins and not those babes. Despite they look they are very easy to style, versatile and office appropriate (for some offices and casual days), here is one of my ways.
