Strawberry loaf-cake

There's one thing I'm super excited for this week - uni's back! Yay!!  So for the next little while I'll (most likely) be posting a lot of uni-related crafts and baking.  This week is no exception - I'm starting to test out recipes that are:
a) healthy
b) will survive in my bag for a few hours
c) sweet enough that I don't crave chocolate.

This week's food: a strawberry loaf (which is more cake-y than loaf-like in my opinion) from Kittenbear.

Strawberry loaf-cake!

This smells so good while in the oven, and the mixture is just so delicious. I may have licked the bowl clean.

It's totally not an appropriate uni food (though it fills 2 of my criteria, the most important one it fails on - the surviveability of it), but it is an amazing loafcake.  It's so moist and delicious!

Mm, so good =D

I tried it with a little bit of butter, and it's delicious both with and without the butter.  Not to mention it's a super easy recipe.  I'll definitely be making this one again, maybe with a selection of berries.  

Hm, I might go and grab another slice before the rest of my family eats it ;)

Until next time,


  1. Looks great! And I agree, its more of a cake type recipe :)

Pattern: No Navi!

It's been a while...  Life's been pretty hectic around here, finally 3/4 way through my prac, so hopefully I can get more pattern making / stitching sometime...  For now, here's a small pattern inspired by this demotivational poster:

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 =)

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…
