A Party To Remember

Can I just rewind the clock and take it back to Christmas time of 2014? Can I take you back to reminisce about all that overeating and indulgent gift giving we all participated in for this post?

I was meant to do this post nice and close to New Years but then I saw running behind schedule, then I went to the Gold Coast and well… now I think I am on track!

I know it is not going to be a hardship or anything for you to turn back time again! Your Instagrams totally showed me how much fun you all were having!

And maybe… you saw mine?

Guest Post: ShenANNAgans

It is officially socialising time – parties, gatherings, theme parks and just chilling well… everywhere! I have been baking a little but give me a week more and I will return 😀

Just a note though to all you lovely people, my comments have for some reason been going into spam for a LOT of your blogs! I am looking into getting it fixed but till then, I promise I am still visiting and loving every minute! Be sure to check your box and unspam me though!! If I have liked your post, most probably a comment will be in your spam 😛

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!

Enjoy! 😀

Consequence of Nostalgia

Alright, so I admit, I know a lot of you are a wee bit older than I am, so you might think I do not have the right to be nostalgic yet! And I do totally understand where you are coming from!

I mean, just the other day, I heard some random, overdressed twelvies in the city, complaining about how they wish their weekends weren’t so busy, full of netball, then dance class and then GOD FORBID, yet another party. Where is the time to do your maths timetables homework? 😛

Risky Business

I could feel my heart pumping, my hands going sweaty and my eyes darting left and right.

Paper was dampening in my hands, I had no way out. I could hear the construction in my head, houses going up around me, enclosing and suffocating me.

I walked down a couple of lanes, darting in and out of free parking, avoiding the houses and hotels surrounding me. It felt too suburbia, it felt too expensive, almost like I was stuck, living in the hub of a big game…

Suddenly a police officer stopped me. Pale as milk, yet imposing in his blue uniform, he beckoned me forward. Slowly, I walked up, not even knowing I had done something wrong.

Bound and gagged, he tossed me into a dark jail cell, with a small passage for visitors. Huh. Who would visit me?

Match Made In Heaven + Giveaway Time! (Closed)

There were slates of clouds scattered throughout the sky, dimming the blue and creating an overcast. Glimpses of rays dodged between them, creating natural spotlights on the earth below.

He was walking, quite stiffly if I do say so myself, through the park. He looked all crinkly, and not fresh at all, as if he had definitely seen better days. ‘Ugh, how to do it, how to do it!?’, a single though revolving through his mind. He could feel his fingers probing at a lump in his pocket, its soft velvety texture not providing any reassurance.

She was coming to meet him in only 10 minutes, and he just wanted the world to stop so he could just breathe. He could feel himself melting by the heat of his stress and the pressure placed on him.

Candy & Our Winner!

Hello my darlings! Yes, that’s right, I am 5/6 through my exams (WOOP WOOP), with my final one being exactly 2 weeks away, so maybe I can sneak in 2 posts by then?

I promise to try, and to start commenting again on your blogs which I miss so much! 😀

Before I announce the winner to my giveaway from the last post (get excited :D), here is a very sweet infograph for you to enjoy, featuring the very familiar blogging talents of Marcela De Vivo, who is a permanent welcome guest here at Go Bake Yourself, considering she offers to guest post so often!

Also, just before I sweep off again, in case any of you are wondering, my new blog website is definitely underway and I am loving it, so I hope you will too! I can’t wait for all of you to join me there 😀

Guest Post #2: Raspberry Nutella Marshmallows

Ironic Comfort

The wind is whipping.

The frost is growing.

The sky is blue but it is so mocking.

The sun is shining yet is only a mirage of warmth.

The heaters are on, to no effect, my nails are pale yet my nose is red. I can no longer feel the tips of my ears.

As I climb out of bed, my heart is heavy, I need something to take my mind of the cold which is so prominent, I feel like I am trying to slash through it with a knife.

Finally Back!

And it feels so good 😀 – I missed you all! I missed the foodie community, the commenting and checking out hundreds of wonderful delicious posts 🙂

All's well that ends well? We'll see...

All’s well that ends well? We’ll see…

I guess you want and deserve an explanation – let me tell you in a little series:

1. I went on holiday for  a week – my school term finished, I needed a break so I had an awesome time chilling out (literally it was snowing!) in Tasmania 🙂

2. I actually have 3 weeks’ worth of exams starting in 1 1/2 weeks time so I have to study more than cook (*sigh*)

Baking Impulsively Means Eating Compulsively

Everyone, get ready to gasp – what in the world is a senior student who has her university life hanging by a thread according to her studies at high school in her senior years doing posting on the first day of a school week? Shock, horror, the world is coming to an end – why, she should be hitting those maths text book which weigh heavier than a computer and bustling around researching haemoglobin or something as such.

Oops, oh well, I think I will survive since I am that senior in question 😉

41You may remember that a couple of weeks back I had a Nutella Baking Week. Good times right? Well, I mentioned that I would be unavailable for World Nutella Day and it was true, I was supposed to be but sometimes things happen and you come home one day too early (she is taking holidays too? For shame! :P) – this was the case with me and finishing all my homework happened first (I am not a complete female version of that rebel without a cause you know) and then even after driving, having time to whip up a little Nutella snack. Well, a snack I didn’t follow the recipe at all too 🙂 – Gotta love impulsive forgot-to-print-recipe cooking aye?
