Deliciously Winter-inappropriate Dessert

Most annoyingly, over the last week I've had a cold.  Granted it was a mild one, but I was so close to making it through this Winter without getting another cold.  So close.  One day, I was sick, bored and wanting a cup of coffee.  Conveniently, I had been watching some Sorted videos and ran across this video.  Granita!  More specifically, a coffee granita.

Mm, coffee granita. 

Today, in interest of sharing more then just a spoonful of granita, I made the other two.  Also because the lemon / mint granita sounded like a great way to get some citrus in my diet so the tail end of my cold clears up quickly.

I made:



Lemon / mint

Lemon Mint!

Strawberry / basil

Strawberry Basil!

I think my favorite's the coffee, but they're all amazingly delicious.  That lemon mint one is a pretty great way to eat lemon rather then just in tea!

I got the recipe from Sorted Food.  They have some pretty great recipes, I'm looking forward to trying to make some more!

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 =)
