More fondant fun

So after the short masterclass I had playing with fondant to make the Easter bunny cake topper, I decided to test my skills and make a lion! I bought ready made coloured fondant but in hindsight I probably should’ve mixed some white into the colours as everything looks good in pastel! I found a picture…

Play Dough

So my sister and I made some play dough from scratch for my nephew to play with. Making your own play dough means that all the ingredients are “natural” and you know exactly what ingredients are in it. This is important as kids love to put things in their mouth!!! My sister got the recipe…

Lesmurdie Falls

So last weekend I went hiking at Lesmurdie Falls.  We popped by Guildford for a quick brekky and was pleasantly surprised how cheap it was! $8 for scrambled eggs on toast & $3 for a coffee! That’s almost unheard of in Perth! Lesmurdie Falls isn’t too far out of Perth – maybe a 30 min…

Silks

So I’ve recently picked up ‘silks dancing’. For those who don’t know it’s a form of aerial dance, think of ‘ballet on air’.  It’s extremely challenging as it requires a lot of upper body strength! I don’t go to the gym, push a lot of weights nor am I flexible so you can imagine the…

Easter Bunny

So awhile back I signed up to an “Easter cake workshop” at the Kitchen Warehouse in Osborne Park. The class went for an hour and a half and we were taught by a lovely lady named Paula from “Charles & Violet” to create this bunny figurine using fondant: This was my first time playing with…

Meetup

So a couple of months back, I joined Meetup. I’ve reached that point in my life where I’m at a different stage compared to my friends. It’s not necessarily a bad thing but sometimes you just want to do something different and everyone might not be free! Meetup is a platform where you can join…

Valentine’s Day

So Valentine’s Day is one of those days that would be awesome if you had a partner to celebrate with, buy you Tiffany’s or overspend on some red roses and then treat you to a meal at a fancy place where they serve teeny tiny sized portions of food making you want to go for…

Adele comes to Perth

Adele finally came to Australia! *jumps for joy* So I was lucky enough to have friends who were sitting at their desk at work madly refreshing their browsers trying to secure tickets to her concert! The concert was held at Domain Stadium in Subiaco, Perth. I must admit, concerts are much better in an open air…

Rotto

So the other day I went to Rottnest for the first time. I’ve grown up in Perth my whole life and have never stepped foot on to the island! Long overdue! Started with one of the Meetup girls asking me if I had plans for the long weekend as she was thinking of spending one…

The Bad First Date

Recently, I decided I was ready to ‘get back in the game’ and joined a whole lot of dating apps. Unfortunately, we now live in a world where one of the more popular ways of meeting people is online. I must admit, it is not my style of dating but I’m willing to try anything…

Disgraceful Cougars

Saw another Fringe show with my sister – Disgraceful Cougars. Got the tickets free from a work colleague which was a bonus! We grabbed dinner at the Pleasure Gardens before the show. A lot of variety to choose from – meat on the bbq, Lucky Chan’s pop store, burgers and even ice cream!  Food was…

Summer beachtime

So it’s summer in Perth and I’ve made it my mission to go to the beach more often.  After all, the beaches in Perth are extraordinary – some of the best in the world. Did i mention how amazing the sunsets are?   I love the feeling of dipping my feet in the water. Something…
