Love filled desserts!

Ok, they are actually chocolate filled but they would be absolutely perfect for Valentine's day! For all us baby step bakers, Pain au Chocolat is extremely gratifying with store-bought puff pastry! It makes you look like a very talented baker.

Weekend in Photos!

I had a pretty fantastic and a pretty weird weekend! We didn't do much touristy stuff because of the constant rain so we spent a lot of time organising our home and had fun shopping for it. On sunday though, we were attacked and almost assaulted by a homeless person. It would have been funny if it hadn't been so scary. The person even managed to get into our building. So weird and freaky!
I managed to go out for some shopping despite the rain. I got this gorgeous navy blazer from Zara. You can buy it here for $39.99

Easy Calzones for the Novice Cook!

Sometimes stores can make your home-made dinners a lot more fun. I bought Pillsbury Pizza Dough from a store today. After a quick check in the fridge, I decided to use yesterday's leftover cauliflower and potato fry as filling for some calzones. They are the easiest things to make with readymade dough.

Stick on Makeup Part 2


Next up - Peel off nail polishes. This one's quite popular , even I have heard of this. Nail wraps by Nail rock have so many designs and colours, I could wear one each week of the year.
