Pantone’s Colors of 2016: Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue

The experts at Pantone already announced the annual Color of the Year. It’s not one, but a combination of two shades, for the first time ever  - Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue - they are shades of pale pink and baby blue. Pantone described these colors as “a harmonious pairing of inviting shades that embody a mindset of tranquility and inner peace.”
Rose Quartz evokes a sunset, budding flower, or flushed cheek, while Serenity conjures an expanse of bleached blue sky. Worn separately, they don't have the same power of calmness as they do when worn together.
The pairing offers a variety of lip, cheek and eye palette options, as well as hues for nail color. Flattering against many skin tones, beauty looks pairing the lighthearted, healthy glow of Rose Quartz, with the cool, refreshing tone of Serenity, create a soft and natural statement. Done with a natural, light touch, the flattering pink that enhances the lip, cheek and eye, can be blended with a hint of the cool blue tone that contributes to a beautiful, neutral-based eye shadow palette, accented by classic solid nails or creative nail art that incorporates both shades in the design.

After this news I decided to see if I have something in my shop in these colors and I found!
Here they are:

Broccoli with greek yogurt casserole recipe

Lastly I made a lot of times this casserole, because it's light and easy to cook.


  • Broccoli, about 800gr
  • 5 eggs
  • 300 gr of greek yogurt 
  • 100-150gr if cheese you use for casserole (I used smoked scamorza)
  • 1 glove of garlic
  • salt and pepper
I don't boil broccoli before but cook it directly in oven, because in this way they are more tasty.
We need to prepare the sause - beat up eggs and then add the greek yogurt. It should be not directly from cooler. Meantime switch on the over on 175°CYou need a garlic press to crush garlic glove.  Add crushed garlic into your sause  and mix well. Add salt and pepper - small portion because the sause will reduce in the oven. Grate the cheese and mix with sause.  Add a little of water if you want the sause to be more liquid.

Cut broccoli into florets and put them very tightly in casserole. Pour the sause over it . If you beated well eggs the sause will remain airy. Cook the casserole until broccoli will be ready - about 40-45min (try them with a fork to be sure)
