Basically, I know you all have met Annie from Unrefined Veganand she organises and oversees everyone in a long chain of bloggers all sharing vegan recipes!

Marathoning

Don’t Forget to enter my giveaway!

(Australians only sorriiiiie!)

Ok… now I can continue my post :)


I just coined the word.

Jokes, everyone uses it, in fact there is no red squiggly line under it, but I’d like to believe I was one of the first. Because I use it so much now you know? imagination truly is a gift.

Anyways, so you all should be proud of me, because your small not-so-little baker girl is marathoning. That’s right, I have signed up for… one, two, three…. 5 different marathons! I know right??? I can’t even believe myself!

Getting S’more Out Of Life + Giveaway!

Bonjour tout le monde, I am finally back! After a slew of incredible guest posts, it is nice to be back behind my screen typing away! And today, I feel a bit like Santa as well so throughout this post, I may be belting out HO HO HOOOOOO periodically!  :D

Now as you all know, the holiday season is quite literally looming on the horizon. The christmas wreaths adorn every corner of every shopping centre, along with giant trees dripping in baubles. Candy canes and advent calendars are all I see when I shop, and in every cafe, there are hunking pieces of christmas cake being sold, some so hard you could break your teeth.

Aaah… classic holiday season. :)

But the month of December, at least here down under, also means heat. Temperatures exceeding 40 degrees C (AC time anyone?) and humidity that wraps around you to almost suffocate you at times, till the rain comes down and washes it away for a few hours. But along with the heat, comes the summer holidays. And everyone knows summer holidays means going out, into said heat, and busting out the picnic table, the golden gaytimes, the cricket bats and the aeroguard protection.

Anyways, so now we have two more guest posts left, and I would love to introduce you all to Anna from ShenANNAgans! A mix of fabulous recipes, life stories and classy events with a massive douse of humour each time, her blog is one of my favourites!

Bonjour tout le monde! Haha, back in a little bit of a french mode there because today’s guest poster we have an awesome-sauce (wow that is SO not french) Mademoiselle!  :D

Guest Post: Baking Perfection

I’m sorry I have been so off the radar with commenting lately (it is usually my procrastination) but this exam period, I have dedicated myself to cramming for two tests in the next two days, and a giant bowl of popcorn with ‘Under the Dome’ :P

So close to freedom yet so far…

But instead of lamenting over my upcoming demise, I would like to share with you guys an amazing as blogger who has the baking skills of a king. Ok, maybe not a king because kings usually didn’t cook but um… how about the baking skills of the Muffin Man who lives on Drury Lane? 

Cos if this guy made gingerbread men, they would definitely come to life with all that flavour! Anyways, enjoy his fabulous (as you have already seen) macarons! I am salivating sitting here!

Guest Post: My Beautiful Things

There is one blogger whom I have known for literally I think the entire time I have been blogging. She is fabulously sweet and blogs daily (I know, that commitment!) about three things that make her smile.

Literally every time, they make me smile as well :D

Which blog could I possibly be talking about but the wonderful mybeautifulthings? For those who have been journeying with me for a while, you will know that she is one of my constant guest posters, always offering to help me out with exams (*cries with gratitude*)! She has made amazing lemon curd, and a to-die-for chocolate amaretti torte, so it should come as no surprise that her latest offering will be awesome sauce!

Enjoy mes cheris, I am going to go back and hit the books! :D
