...And we're back

My first week of uni is now over and done!  It has been a long week (...I am not a morning person, but I don't regret choosing a 9am class), and I'm glad it's the weekend, but I'm super pumped for next week!  As I mentioned last week (I think I did?), I've been wanting to make food to take to uni which is delicious and stops me from buying my lunch / snacks.  When I saw Not Quite Nigella's Carrot Cake Muesli Bar recipe, I knew I had to make it.

Outside of the "muesli bar"

Mine turned out more like an incredibly moist cake than a muesli bar, but...  That's because I was too lazy to go and see if we actually own a lamington tin...  So I made it in a smaller brownie tin, instead.

As a result, it turned out (as I mentioned before) super moist and absolutely nothing like a muesli bar.

Mm, carrot cake muesli bar...

...But it was still so delicious.  Can't wait to make this again, but as an actual muesli bar this time!

Until next time,

23 before 23: 6 month update!

Back in August I posted about 23 things that I wanted to achieve before I hit 23 next year (read about it here). Since we're at the 6 month mark, I thought an update was in store!

Writing this post and reading over my list I'm realising how much I've got to achieve - school holidays now, time to get busy! So far I've achieved...

12. Spend a day at the beach
Check! Was a gorgeous day and both myself and my boyfriend came back without being completely roasted. Considering how pale we both are, that was a surprise.

19. Find a signature makeup look
It only occurred to me the other day that I'd done this - I <3 my winged liner and bright lip.

20. Read 2 "classic" novels
Done and done!
Clearly I've gotten lazy with my book reviewing, haha. I've since read The Great Gatsby, Little Women and am currently marathoning my way through Anna Karenina.

I've noticed it just seems like I'm not a Jane Austen fan but have enjoyed all of the others that I've re…

Pichu Cross Stitch

My first cross stitch creation, created with KG-Chart LE.  It's a Pichu (from Pokemon), and I'm hoping to continue with this Pokemon theme through other cross stitches.  If I get around to this, I'll post a picture when I'm done =)
