Instant Goddess: Transition from summer to winter with these fun fall styles

StylePost Category - StyleStyle

At the time of going to press, it seems frivolous to be writing about fashion when we’ve seen so much unrest on the streets of Hong Kong. But should things ever get back to some sort of normality, and you feel like splashing some cash on fash, here are some morsels to get those purse strings twitching…

Instant Goddess does love to lounge in style, especially when it’s affordable style. The outfits above are all from ZenvarA – a local Hong Kong label specialising in stylish but affordable resort wear. This is definitely one to watch in the upcoming months with all the festive pop-up shops and fairs just around the corner and even more so if you’re jetting off to sunny climes for Christmas. For more information you can contact the founder, Anita Beavis (call 9586 3459 or email [email protected]). Dates for the diary with venues where you’ll be able to get your ZenvarA fix are:

Midweek Meal Inspiration

This week it’s Jamie Oliver’s Hit n Run Traybaked Chicken, a tasty, all-in-one dish that couldn’t be more simple. Pop into the oven, serve with salad and mop up the glorious, sticky juices with crusty bread – you couldn’t get more Instant Goddess friendly than that. Oh, and it’s relatively low cal… perfect for weight-watching mamas.

Yogi tea saying of the week: “You cannot control culture, but you can change it.”

Instant Goddess saying of the week: “It’s time for change.” 

Until next time Goddesses, and remember you are always, always worth it!

We've been looking for clever ways for the whole family to eat more veggies.... purple pasta might do the trick! ⠀
Insta-Worthy Sweet Potato Pasta 💜
1 cup of purple sweet potato, or orange (which is easier to work with texture wise i find) steamed or roasted ⠀⠀
1-1 1/2 cup of unsweetened plant milk (but we'll use regular)⠀⠀
1 clove of roasted garlic ⠀⠀
1-2 tablespoon nutritional yeast flakes ⠀
1 tablespoon of olive oil or vegan butter ⠀
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice ⠀⠀
1 teaspoon smoked paprika ⠀⠀
pinch of sea salt (to taste) ⠀⠀
pinch of black pepper (to taste) ⠀⠀
Blend all your ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth, adjusting the thickness to your liking by adding less or more (plant) milk. Adjust seasonings to your preference also, and serve over freshly cooked pasta. This sauce is best enjoyed right away, as it can clump and change in texture after being refrigerated.⠀⠀
