Surprisingly Delicious

If there's one thing I'm pretty sure about, it's that that I think that this was one of my very first pins.  Which I only made today.

After all, with a name like "Lemonade cupcakes with Raspberry Frosting", how could I not?  I'd never heard of lemon and raspberry as a combination before (is it a common one?) so of course (in accordance to my new years resolution to try new things) I had to try it.

It was... surprisingly tasty but ultimately unimpressive as a combination.  Don't get me wrong, I loved the cupcake itself, I loved the frosting (so. very. much.) but it wasn't as delicious as I'd obviously ramped it up to be.  The rest of my family loves them so very much though.  Turns out I'd stumbled upon my mum's favorite cake type...

All in all, I'd probably make this recipe again but probably not as a combination.

My version!

Hmm, guess this means I should probably try this "peanut butter and jelly" combination that I've heard so much about... Haha.

See you Tuesday!

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…
