Making It Easier With ZipList!

Good afternoon, morning and evening my darlings! I am just lounging around, pretending to be a fish while my criminology essay sits untouched.

We have all been there, how sad does that empty word document look right?

But then I decided to stop being so unproductive (I can suck in my cheeks that much non?) and kick-ass myself into action… right into my blog :D
Because as always my priorities are 100% on line!

In today’s post, I want to introduce you to new partnership I am in which is saving your lives. Yes. YOUR lives. And mine I suppose as well :D

For ages now, you guys have been asking me to do some sort of printing mechanism for my recipes (love you!) and I used to put up a word document which you could just print – but it was hard, I often forgot and had to update my posts, and overall, just NOT ideal!

Holiday Post #4: Mini Velvet Christmas Bundts

I am in Rome. With Colosseums and cute Italian boys and fascinating sculptures and cute boys that look like them. Definitely in a wonderful place right now ;)

But seriously, even though I am writing this way before I actually go, I can guarantee that I am having the best time of my life right now, travelling with my friends and enjoying Europe to its height!

Best post Christmas ever right!? ;)

I hope each and every one of you is having just as much amazing fun, and also have had the most incredible New Year’s bash, full of fireworks, dancing and good wishes!

But now the time has come to face 2014 :D

Eat cake first, before you do anything else though (I have wonderful philosophies!) :P

Merry Christmas!

When friends come together, when family stays over and when there is a certain magic in the air as you hear ‘Love Actually’s’ soundtrack played on repeat in every store.

When snows falls in the north and the sun blazes in the south, when the summer solstice and winter solstice collide and when the songs of birds sound more melodious than ever.

When gift wrapped presents glint under trees, when Santas sell candy canes, furniture or booze and when many a Rudolph decorate the lawns of suburban houses.

CCU Undercover: Four Friends – Coffee, Chocolate & Tea

CCU looked over the array of chocolates lining the shelf, glimmering with untold flavours, begging to be eaten. She noted the macaron tower, the dusting of glitter sparkling under the rays of light filtering in through the windows.

‘I could get used to this…’ she thought to herself, as she ambled around the shop, taking photos and enjoying the aroma of chocolate surrounding her. 

She had no idea that out of this experience, she would be receiving a lot more than just a wonderful chocolate afternoon tea…

*********************

Have you ever experienced an epiphany? Met someone who made you wonder, question and think about life from a whole other perspective you thought might not even exist anymore?

In a world as corporate and money-minded as the one we live in today, it truly is now a dog-eat-dog-world. All the old sayings, such as ‘nice guys finish last’ are actually true and we have multinational corporations taking over small businesses and honing them to be money-making machines. However, I realised that  as a result of this mass profiting venture, the quality is compromised and we, as their customers, get used to it, not questioning it, because advertising sells it as the best.

And So It Begins… With A Giveaway (Closed)

So, here I am again, feeling a bit sheepish that I am blogging when I have been ignoring all your gorgeous posts for what? A week and a half?

I would say ‘oops’ and cover my mouth with my hands all Marilyn Monroe style and pretend innocence, but it is just not that situation! :P

IMG_0573

You guys know that I graduated, and was rather thrilled with it. And then you found out for some obscure reasons, my finals at school were not my finals per se, because I have another set of exams now. #whatisblogging

I promise you all, it seems like exams are all I ever do, but these are for real, my final exams ever. For 4 months. For high school. Despite the fact that I am taking quite few holidays after I finish, I will be all yours. Soon my darlings… so soon!

4th November. Remember that. :D

IMG_0610

So on Monday, my final exams begin (On one day, I have 2 exams in one day 6 hours in one day, and my hand will fall off, I guarantee it :P)

I am already feeling the euphoria, the rush of chucking away sheets (You’ll see what I mean when I post again!) but no, let it begin. Like Jordin Sparks says, ‘Take one step at a time, there’s no need to rush‘ (Lies, I want to rush my butt off!) ;)

Class of 2013

Dear Class of 2013

I do not know all of you. To some, I did not know you at all, apart from a face and a name. And now, at the end of it, I’m sorry  that I was too shy or didn’t put in the effort to get to know more of you. But during graduation week, honestly, I felt like that all melted away and I’m really thankful to all of you for making my last week at our school so wonderful! :)

IMG_0434

Whether it be jigging class dressed as a transvestite or attempting to pretend nonchalance while holding your breath in your junior uniform, when we were together a grade, it made it all the more fun, and all the more memorable :D
You made water fighting the most awesome-sauce pastime in existence and honestly, because of you all, graduation was brilliant and post-grad even better :D

IMG_0444

It’s surreal feeling, knowing we as a grade, will never fully be together again, and I feel a little weird about it. As much as I’m not going to miss our puke-ish uniforms (girls you know what I’m saying!) or the bells or the rules, I’m going to miss us. Our grade, the grade that was so vibrant, so crazy and so loved :)
The reputation of our grade was just… nuts. Actually. I wish I could use bette words but I really can’t lie when that was it :P

CCU Undercover: Adriano Zumbo Mirror Cake

IMG_0121‘Covert’ is her middle name.

CCU slid through the aisles, the trench coat collar sticking up high, as she pretended to gaze at ingredients thoughtfully.

Sauces.

Canned goods.

Baking aisle.

She was so close, a bead of sweat trickling down from her temple. She wiped it away, as if swatting a fly, trying to appear inconsequential.

A man with a moustache looked at her. They knew. She quickened her pace, her heart beating erratically, and she pushed past busty ladies balancing their babies to get to the area.

The cake mix area.

Like a venus flytrap, her hand snaked out and grabbed the mix, before being stuffed into the inside of her coat.

Look left.

Look right.

And so, she fled Coles.

*Disclaimer: This story is for humorous purposes only, no foods were stolen in the making.

**Also, I don’t know if Coles is worldwide, but here down under, it is one our major supermarkets. No they did not pay me to use their name specifically, it could have been Woolworths for all its worth, whatever suits your imagination :)

Ok, now see here, this story is all what you would call, an example of, ‘artistic licence’ – taking an event and twisting it because I have the right to do so as someone who regards themselves as published. No sorry, actually, it can be done by anyone.

Ever heard of Chinese whispers? Exactly.

Belated… Everything…

Hiiiiiiiiii… you… *hits you virtually on the shoulder lightly*

*awkward silence*

IMG_9942…………………………………………….

Ok, so maybe my keyboard is having a little trouble working… or have my fingers just gotten out of practice in blogging?

Fine, you wrenched the truth from me, it is the latter. Gosh guys, can’t you give me anything? You still love me right?
