Sneakers and Fur

This has been my favourite winter uniform on a daily basis way up before it became a fashion trend  and I just can't get tired of it! I love the high/low, fancy/casual vibe it conveys with a fun, funky, sassy but still polished atmosphere around it. Plus it's a great way to express our individual sense of fashion and I love the fact that it makes me feel/ look young but appropriate at all times. In this kinfd of outfit I'm in my own skin and that's the most important. Also fake furs nowadays look really great - you just have to look for the amazing options available out there. As Karl Lagerfeld once stated : "You cannot fake chic, but you can be chic and fake fur"!

This amazingly simple and easy to prepare  delicacy  features spicy and delicious shrimps  kernels and crab sticks wrapped in a tender puff pastry sprinkled with savory sesame seeds and it can be used as an excellent appetizer - if in smaller bits - or as a whole meal [it is quite satisfyiyng] sided by a greenery salad on a more busy or lazy day.The rich flavour of the filling together with the crisp puff pastry is a combination made in heaven! Enjoy!

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • ground chili
  • salt q.b.
  • 4 tablespoons mustard
