Avocado Chicken Salad

Check out this super simple and quick everyday recipe. Great for everyone, from busy moms to hard working college kids. Everything that's needed, you probably already have. So there's no need for an impromptu shopping trip. Now go and get cooking.






An avocado is necessary for this recipe. Which is something that most may not  have in the kitchen. ( so head to the market if you must :) )





Frozen chicken nuggets, cooked of course make this simple and quick. Although, you can substitute for pre- cooked grilled chicken. It works just as great and gives you a few healthy foodie points.



Pepper and sea salt to give the avocado an added boost of flavor.




Layer the ingredients and season to taste. Voila, lunch, dinner or whatever you please. Now, wasn't that easy?




Happy Eating,
Mari

Wickedly Delightful Halloween Recipe

Halloween is coming really soon. Which means there will be loads of tricks and troves of devilishly delicious treats. I love Halloween and its spooky magic especially the great snacks and treats the holiday inspires. Which is why every year I try and create something with an ode to the haunting day. This year I have five new and super simple snacky surprises. I am going to be revealing one every Wednesday until Halloween. So, stick around and be sure to check them out. Today I give to you witches kettle, a super ghoulish popcorn delight. 


Here's how you throw it together. Truly simple and way easy. In fact there's hardly a need for words.

































Ingredients


Kettle Corn ( or butter if preferred)

Pretzels

Candy Corn

M&M's

Chocolate Syrup




Note: choose any two of your favorite and festive candies.


Directions: After your corn has been popped. Mix your ingredients into the bowl. Just layer everything together and drizzle with chocolate. Lastly, enjoy alone or with friends.



This mix is great for large parties or can be used as a dressed up snack.



Happy Cooking,
Mari

The September Report

Hello, and hi again. This post may be a bit weird as it is a little late, because september has already started. Basically, i really just wanted to chat a bit about whats going on with Glitter Zombies during the awesome and cozy month of september. All of the new projects and our hopes and dreams. Still here and interested...well read on !






At the start of each month i like to compile everything that i would like to happen. Happen both in my career and everyday life. Take a look at what I've compiled and maybe become inspired to create your own "survival guide". Just a few A...B... AND C's...

A)   I really enjoy working on my blogs both the art and fashion portals. Taking time out from the day   to sit and write whatever comes to mind is actually really fulfilling. It gives me the opportunity to                      create topics and explore avenues that I'm really excited about. Also i really love sharing things that i create with the readers and seeing feedback and positive comments. So, my goal is to definitely grow the blogosphere and reach a larger audience and just grow !!!

B)  Art is and has always been a great fascination of mine. Its forever changing and never forcing an unnecessary permanence. My favorite style of art would probably have to be abstract. Which is a major factor in my creative motivations and probably why i love the opposite of the now, (whats on trend). My characters and zombie beings are my crazy obsessions. Hopefully, there will be some sort of animation type project in the future. Or maybe even a special project that will allow all of the school goers to take of piece of the GZ world along in their backpacks. ( and maybe on lunch boxes??)

C)  I think there may be a fashion show in the air around the end of september. I am currently working on curating the final pieces for the first Glitter Zombies collection, which i will post about soon. I also would love to have people who actually know Glitter Zombies and what being a glitter zombie means, to model the collection. More info soon.

D)  Finishing up regular college and moving on to do a few fashion related courses. This little project will extend a tiny bit beyond September. However, i thought that i didn't hurt to mention. As it is still really exciting.

E)  Growing the GZ brand. Which to me means expanding the product selection in our current Etsy shop. Opening an external shop that will house all of our Glitterific products and vintage collection. Also, my mother and i are going to be opening a vintage boutique. Which all of the local angelenos will soon be able to come and see.



Well, there you have it, in short my happenings and aspirations. Hopefully everything goes as planned and the reports will be up soon for your viewing pleasure. Now that you have read my mind get going and swim around yours. Outline for yourself what you would like to achieve, work really hard, believe and the dreams shall be conceived.

Mari

D.I.Y Flower Crown Kit's

The summer season is almost officially over until next year. Which means that a few of our designs will be going away as well. Meaning that headbands not already created lay alone without a purpose or a home. So, one day after a long think tank session, a few of us zombies had an idea. ( Mainly me) We thought that it would be awesome to package up the extra bobs and throw in a few bits and make them into kits.



"Mini Carnation Kit."




"Royal Flower Crown Kit."


Check out these and other designs currently available in our shop on Etsy. GlitterZombiess.Etsy.com
