  • Cool the boiled eggs under cold water for about 5 minutes
  • Peel the eggs while it is still a bit warm; which makes it easy to peel.
  • Using a sharp knife, slice each egg in half, lengthwise.

Shade of Mustard : Autumn Fashion

It is still Autumn here but it feels like winter already. I think you already know that I hate winter as I have written that every time I get a chance. I feel that there is so much less time these days that it feels like I need 30 hours in a day. By the time I leave work, the sun has set and by the time I reach home, it is dark already. It really annoys me that I feel too lazy to do anything or even workout. All I want to do is curl up in front of the TV.

Anyway, I can rant as much as I want but still nothing’s gonna change so I better get back on track on what I originally meant to write in this post.

Mustard colour seems to be famous this autumn. I have seen coats, jackets, tops, dresses, skirts, shoes and accessories such as belts, bags or scarves in this colour and I am loving it all. As I am not very fair I thought the colour wouldn’t suit me but I bought a dress just to check and I am in fact loving it. It is a big statement colour and it really looks good with every skin type.

Also I saw lots of celebrities rocking this colour.

So if you’re thinking of buying a statement piece this season, go for anything in shades of mustard. This colour instantly livens up any outfit and trust me you will love it 🙂

Just remember:

  • Even a dash of mustard livens up the dullest outfit, so introduce the colour with accessories such as belts, bags or scarves.
  • Mix different tones. Burnt orange with flecks of yellow and brown will create a warm look and complement a fading tan.
  • A bright yellowy mustard works best on textured fabrics such as ribbed jumpers or pleated skirts.

Enjoy! 🙂
