Simply striking and strikingly simple. Recipes, crafts, home decor and general life hacks that are easy yet impressive.

New Features at Simply.Striking


Firstly, I want to thank everyone who is reading, enjoying, sharing, and talking about this blog. I am having a great time producing this space, and I hope that you enjoy it as much as I am.

I am so happy to announce some new features that you will see rolling out as the days and weeks come. These features will tie the blog together and make it cohesive in its theme and purpose. Of course the goal still remains that I write about simply striking ideas that are strikingly easy! But you will notice themes will be emerging so that it is easier to navigate and helps you use this blog more efficiently.

Rolling Recipes: Rolling recipes will be recipes that ties together so that a common thread runs along all the recipes posted. The reason I decided to create this is I find myself with a pantry and fridge full of ingredients that I used for a particular recipe but do not know what to do with the remains. Ever make a recipe that calls for 1/4 cup parsley and you find yourself with a giant bunch wilting in your fridge? Well the purpose of Rolling Recipes is the next recipe I post will help you use up that bunch of parsley. And if that recipe that uses up the parsley calls for another ingredient that may wind up sitting around, the recipe after that will feature that ingredient; which continues the chain of recipes. I foresee that the chain will eventually end, so to make it easy I will numerically name and catalogue the recipes that are within the same chain.

Monday Muse: My Monday Muse posts will appear on…Mondays! šŸ˜‰ This will be a series on how artwork influences fashion and design. Each week I select a specific piece of art and create an inspiration board of how that particular piece influences the decor or fashion selections. It also gives me a chance to talk about my favourite artists and their works.

Friday Fundays: As you have noticed, the common theme of this blog is to keep subjects at an elevated and sophisticated level. To help you look like you live the life of luxury or be the hostess with the mostess. However through my research for topic ideas, I’ve come across some really fun ideas that I wanted to share. Thus occasionally Fridays will feature posts that are more fun and whimsical in nature.

Thanks again for all your support and enjoy Simply.Striking!
