Szilvia Juhasz In Harmony with Nature fashion collection’s inspiration is Balázs Czakó’s Hungarian and Icelandic landscape photos. These photos bring the full inspiration and goals with this collection. The dresses bring nature to those wearing the dresses. Many can pay attention to the beautiful values of our world by seeing the dress each model has on the runway.

In Harmony With Nature Juhász’s Collection

Each dress is one of Czakó’s photos from the landscape.  The model is welcome to express the feelings, mood and the love of nature. Femininity has a strong emphasize by the perfect harmony of the unique silhouette and the design. The harmony between this wonderful planet we live on and the need for preservation is found in each unique design.

The best fabrics for photography printing include satin, terry silk, and duchess satin. The other fabrics to compliment this collection include embroidered tulle lace for a sleeve, stretch velvet for top, muslin, crystal tulle for skirt. The colors, accessories, and styling continue to mirror the inspiration for this collection. A richness and elegance extend from the photos to the dresses.

Szilvia Juhász Creative Director

Juhasz, creative director of JC Juhaszilvia, been a seamstress for 25 years. She has her dressmaking license. This brings her abilities full circle. She is able to create pants, dress, gowns, and coats. The process of designing and creating brings Juhász joy. Her designs and talents include sketching, pattern making, and sewing.

Juhasz strives to balance her life and health. The focus is her job during the day. She values living her private life, sports, and recreation. She keeps healthy food as a high value. Early mornings bring her day success with achieving thanksgiving and living in harmony with nature.  This collection is a childhood dream.

I would like my landscape dresses to reach those people who feel important to keep the treasures of our beautiful natural surroundings and who would like to express this through their dressing.

Unacceptance to Self-Acceptance ~ Belle A Film

Unacceptance to Self-Acceptance ~ Belle A Film

Belle is a film about growing from un-acceptance to self-acceptance. Dido Elizabeth Belle, actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw, is a true story of a high society young African-American mixed English during the 18th century. Belle finds herself in high society but has a hard time finding herself anywhere.

She struggles to balance things every day. She is the daughter of a slave and Sir John Lindsay, a navy ship captain. Her grandparents become her caregiver, Mansfield Her status as aristocrats provides her a lifestyle that is of class and comfort. This story looks at gender, race, and class.

Belle finds herself eating alone when guests arrive she is not allowed to dine with the staff at this time either. This reality is her status is not high enough to eat with guests but too high to eat with the servants. She is kept hidden from society, during a time that many young women traditionally come out to society for formal courtship.

Her cousin, Elizabeth groomed and readied for her coming out, even though she has no dowry to offer. Belle being an heiress to her father’s fortune after his untimely death provides her dowry, but does not have social standing for courtship. The custom at this time is a black woman is not seen in white circles.

She finds herself struggling with the fact that she is not fully accepted because of her skin color. The complexity love from her family but the burden of being unaccepted becomes a climactic moment where she is clawing at her skin and face in anguish. A strong demonstration of what is going on inside Belle as she struggles with being the daughter of a slave and a navy captain.

This struggle is one that many faces in life. They take on the social standards for beauty and how we each place expectations on ourselves wanting acceptance by others.  The film demonstrates Belle bringing her to self-acceptance. Self-acceptance is a great health Releasing that she is more than her skin color. She embraces the love of her life leaving behind her status in high society.The director, Amma Asante,  brings the story from the inside of Belle to the outside makes it authentic and real.

The director addresses the realization of the time period issues of race, class, and gender. She uses layers to present her story. The complexity being African-American woman who is learning gain acceptance of herself in her place in life. This layering brings this very relatable struggle for many even today.  Belle’s journey of self-acceptance brings the audience full circle from unacceptance to self-acceptance.

The story based on a painting of Elizabeth and Belle that hung in the Kenwood house for decades. The painting shows Belle slightly elevated in the painting to her white cousin. They are touching in this painting. It demonstrating that Elizabeth is accepting of Belle and her new self-acceptance in life. Belle finds empowerment, freedom, and happiness with her self-acceptance. The film brings love, change, and equality to the forefront while showing the development of self-assurance.

Wolfgang Puck’s Oscars’® Governors Ball Recipe ~ Chicken Pot Pie

Wolfgang Puck’s Oscars’® Governors Ball Recipe ~ Chicken Pot Pie

Create Chicken Pot Pie just like the celebrities enjoy at Oscar’s® night. There is planning the menu, shopping, and creating all the wonderful dishes. Wolfgang Puck, catering service for the 90th Oscars® is busy as well preparing the food for the Governors Ball.

Puck a renowned Chef and works with CEO Carl Schuster, they continue to set the standard for culinary excellence at the Governors Ball. He revolutionizes the dining landscape with a singular focus: to exceed expectations when our guests gather for a meal. This year is no different for the event of the year, The Academy Awards®. He is staying true to using fish and seafood that is Watch compliant and locally sourced ingredients. They are coming from:

This year’s menu includes his famous Chicken Pot Pie. This will include 1,000 pounds Pasturebird chicken and 100 pounds carrots to feed the hungry celebrities. This is a simple recipe that will be a dish that is easy to create and serve individually.

CHICKEN POT PIE

(recipe courtesy Wolfgang Puck, adapted from “Wolfgang Puck Makes it Easy,” Rutledge Hill Press, 2004)

Yield: Serves 4

2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken, cut into 1-inch chunks

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

4 tablespoons vegetable oil

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided

1/2 pound organic red-skinned potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

1/2 pound organic carrots, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces

1 medium yellow onion, peeled and diced

2 garlic cloves, minced

Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes

1 sprig thyme

1 bay leaf

1 cup white wine

2 cups organic chicken stock

1 cup plus 1 tablespoon heavy cream

1/4 cup dry sherry

1/2 cup shelled or frozen peas

Approximately 1/2 pound frozen puff pastry, defrosted following package instructions

1 cage-free egg

Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper, and toss in a mixing bowl with 2 tablespoons of

the flour until evenly coated. In a large skillet over high heat, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil. Add

the chicken pieces, reduce the heat slightly, and sauté, turning them occasionally, until light

golden and thoroughly cooked, about 5 to 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the

chicken to a plate and set aside. Add the remaining oil and 2 tablespoons of the butter to the pan,

then add the potatoes, carrots, and onions and sauté until they begin to look glossy and bright, 2

to 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium, stir in the garlic, red pepper flakes, thyme, and bay

leaf, and sauté, just until the vegetables begin to color slightly, 2 to 3 minutes more.

Add the wine, turn up the heat, stir and scrape with a wooden spoon to deglaze the pan deposits,

and simmer until the liquid reduces by about half, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the chicken stock and the

1 cup of cream. Bring the liquid to a boil, reduce the heat slightly, and simmer briskly until the

liquid reduces by about half again and is thick and creamy about 15 minutes. Remove the sprig

of thyme and the bay leaf. Stir in the reserved chicken pieces and the sherry. Stir together the butter

and remaining flour and stir this paste into the mixture. Season the sauce to taste with salt and pepper.

Transfer to 4 large individual ovenproof 2-cup soup bowls, 4 ramekins of the same size, or a 2-quart baking

dish. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until the filling is cold, at least 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Make sure the puff pastry is no thicker than 1/4 inch. With

the tip of a sharp knife cut the pastry into 4 circles that will overhang the rim of the serving

bowls or ramekins by about half an inch; for a single large baking dish, cut 4 circles that will

cover its top, or use one large sheet.

In a small bowl, beat together the egg and the remaining 1 tablespoon cream to make an egg

wash. Brush the tops and outsides of the rims of the bowls. Place the bowls, ramekins, or

baking dish on a baking tray and place the puff pastry circles on top, pressing them gently over

the sides of the dishes. Pierce the tops with the tip of a paring knife. Brush the top of the pastry

with egg wash. Carefully transfer the baking sheet to the oven and bake until the filling is

bubbling hot and the pastry is a deep golden brown, 25 to 35 minutes. Serve hot.

Serve with this great non-alcoholic drink. The inspiration is every great hero needs a faithful sidekick. The drink offers a thoughtful combination of the vibrant hibiscus, fresh citrus and effervescent tonic complemented by an elegant garnish.
