Weird song to love..yes maybe..so what..

Found this on another blog that I follow..I'm sure when she posted this song at the time, she was hurtingbut the song jingle doesn't go with that mood...maybe that's how she';s dealing with her pain...

I listened to the song expecting it to be sad...but the jingle is actaulyl really cool! this is a song I can hear myself singing along to!

Don't u ever feel like saying F#$%#% u to someone?? I'd love to sing it to someone!

Colours of my cupcake...

I don't know what's happened to me in the last month or so but I'm on a foodie roll! :) And note that I don't make them to eat all of them. I make them because I love baking and making things look pretty...and blogging about them AND finally (and maybe the most important point) I love giving them away!!! Think I should start charging for my services haha

Cupcakes make u happy..or should I say make me happy (amongst other things like GOOD SHOES!!!!)..all the pretty colours in one tiny cute package! YUMMY! And watching people eat good cupcakes is even better!!! My aim in the next few months - be the cupcake queen who has UBER style (thinking of shoes here :)

I was up until 11:30 last night decorating these..dropped them off at mums office this am :)

Do I Love giving - hell to the yeah!! :)

I heart chocolate..

Last week I rushed to get three assignments completed and submitted in two days (SHEESSH)..needless to say that when I should have bend focussing on my studies, I was thinking about othe things..like what shoes I'm going to buy this month, what to wear to a friends wedding this weekend..and what else can I eat??

I couldn't get to the shop so I dug up old recipe books (filled with things I find on the net nad then cut and paste into the book) and found the chocolate cake in a mug recipe (from some online recipe thing last year)... Took about 10minutes to mix and throw eeverything into the MICROWAVE!! The mixture was too much for one person in a mug so I decided to "gooi" them in the oven and made two lil chocolate cupcakes...

Chocolate never disappoints!

Thicky Thins..LOVE this song and this video and her "thicky thins"

Thicky thins...a term used by a male friend once upon a time! He said girls with thick thighs (but those which are solid) are thicky thins. Make sense...nope not much! But I love her body and her voice ,,,,her voice is rough and gritty and unique...and fresh! My number one love is still Missy Elliott but Miss Minaj is close behind Missy ;)

This is the song that will get me through today! Do yourself a favour and wacth the video... the guys in the vid do some WEIRDDD stuff with their arms!Can u say FLEXY?! :)

My weekend - like a picture book ;)

Mixture for shortbread..rubbing my hand through this mixture was so much fun! It took me back to my days in Swaziland, in my grannys kitchen when I used to stand on her kitchen chair to reach the table..would help her mix everything together and wait eagerly for the freshly baked goods...GOOD MEMORIES!!

My lovely sister playing with the decor for my cupcakes..
Last Saturday we went for drinks @ the office in Greenside..will do another post on the venue..but this was a gingerbread mule followed by a Jagerbomb! hmmm goodie!
I met mom, Jand L (my younger sister - one is 17 and the other is 25) for breakfast at Blubird Shopping center..there is this really great old school family-togetherness- feeling restaurant there called Bay Leaf and Sage..awesome service and awesome food in an awesome setting (too many awesomes?? haha)  Do yourself a favour and wake up early one saturday or sunday am - have breakfast there! Your body will thank you.
J had this for lunch...a creamy pesto pasta with chicken and mushrooms...really good
J's favourite - Cappuccino with LOTSSSS of cream! And she has this allll the time but doesn't put on any wright! ARGH hate it!! Wish I was that lucky,,I just look at it and I gain 1kg ;)
This was Sunday Lunch..well Monday lunch with the family...was my grannys birthday (she turned 68 this year but doesn't look a day over 50!!) and we decided to invite the family over for lunch! I LOVE family time!! With all my heart and soul! In this mix is Roasted Potatoes, Lamb Stew, Mutton Curry, Savoury Rice, Chicken Breyani, Creamed Spinach, Butternut, J's special Pasta Thermador, Baked Bean salad and potatoe salad - with wine on the side of course :)
Part 2 of family get together....We had pancakes with strawberrys and cream and/or ice cream - whatever you wished for :) These strawberrys make me happy cos they're soooo fresh and bright and earthy! Summer is DEFINITELY on its way! Cannot wait to experiment with strawberry desserts! nyom nyom!
A chocolate cake that I made at 0830 in the am! I don't lik waking up early but it was a special day for granny so I was up with the birds busy "bee-ing" it up in the kitchen...
I tried to be different with my dessert...as always...and decided to tear my pancake into long strips and then layer it with cream AND ice cream with strawberrys thrown in the mix...needless to say it was way too much for my to finish ...but it was soooo pretty!! just look at it! :)

And that my dear friends is what I got up to sometime ago :)

Mercury never looked so good.

What do you do when u have a crazy day at work and cannot face anything or anyone?!?!

You go into the kitchen and take your time preparing lunch (that's what I resorted to yesterday). Took a leisurely stroll to the shop, bought a few things and threw it together :)

Yellow peppers
Mixed Salad with herbs (don't know what herbs?)
Tuna aka mercury

Honey and Mustard Salad Dressing

Enjoyed with diluted Fanta Orange (yes I'm weird like that I dilute my drinks!) :)
