#frugalfashionista : frugal fine dining

I was out at dinner with the rest of my design team and one of our vendor teams. We were at Cameron Mitchell’s “Ocean Club,” which serves up a reputation of wonderful dishes. One of the other designers and I ordered this fantastic $30+ plate of teriyaki salmon. I was so pleased with it I wanted to try the recipe for myself.

While I am absolutely no professional culinary artist, I looked up a recipe and decided to give it a shot. I found this one on cookingclassy.com. While my plate at ocean club was a little more than $30, it only cost me about $30 to make two entrees, mussels for appetizer, and maybe another $10 for our Pinot Grigio.

The sauce was almost as good as I remember it being from the restaurant. My boyfriend certainly had no opposition to the plate, he loved it.

With valentines day around the corner, this plate might be for you too! Give it a shot. Tell me what you think! I’ve included the recipe below.

#frugalfashionista : nothing better than a little lace and leather

I’m not a huge supporter of valentines day whether I’m single or taken, but it is around the corner and what better way to celebrate it than in some sexy attire…sexy and personal attire?

I didn’t the buy pieces necessarily for valentines day, but more so for the Europe trip. Bc why not? Why not spoil myself and my lucky man?

Be playful, be cute, sweet and sexy! And it doesn’t require stripping your wallet…just stripping some layers 😉

I tend to luck out on fun finds at Burlington. But be careful, there are some that look truly cheap, like pole dancer uniform status! My best advice when browsing those racks. Pick delicate lady like colors: black, nude, grey, pastels, and then red for a more daring side.

Much love – MA
