How To: Mini Chocolate Birthday Cake

HALLO. Hope you are all well, healthy and happy! If not- you can always cheer yourself up with this mini chocolate cake 😀 (even if it’s not your birthday).

One Stroke Painting

You all knew this blog post was soon approaching (well, those of you who follow me on instagram and facbeook anyway).  I discovered one stroke painting on my rosey-floral art venture.

So a few weeks ago, i was revved up to pursue a little summer business venture- selling candles. I initially wanted to decorate and embellish candles but encountered a lot of annoying difficulties along the way. I was on the verge of giving up and decided to then just give it a break and unwind...

My Many Doodles

Who doesn’t love a good old doodle? I find that lectures go by SO much quicker when i doodle, heck, i dont even want the lecture to finish.  LOL okay don’t follow my example, it’s bad.

Nothing more relaxing than chilling to a song and letting my mind wander.  I’ve...
