August Favourites

This month's favourites is themed 'dying in the workplace' because I started workplace practicum on the 4th and I spent all month long adjusting to the hours, restless sleep and troubled skin that resulted from this transition. I wasn't sleeping as soundly as I used to, and my skin decided it would be opportune to sprout some spots worthy of my prepubescent days. Wearing makeup on a near-daily basis meant I started to take cleansing more seriously so all up my skincare arsenal is in a good place at the moment.

These Are Addictive

August so far has been an overwhelming month, full of change and transition. It's been an emotional rollercoaster but filled with blessings like good food and great friends! Most recently I've been watching The Legend of Korra, as a followup to watching Avatar: The Last Airbender last year (I didn't want to watch the sequel right after finishing the first series because I thought it was weird; I was still emotionally attached to the first round of characters), and we returned to Victoria Park Golf Course's 18-hole putt-putt mini golf with a bunch of friends, and had round 2 at good old Maxy B's (Max Brenner) for hot chocolates with crunchy waffle balls. I mention these because I haven't recorded them by way of photos, but here are a few photos from what I've been doing for the rest of August!

Poppies from Daisy's at Toowong for my sister! So sculptural and pretty.

She Cooks, She Eats

This is a photo post that is mostly of food I've made and eaten. I've been quiet on the blog front lately because I've commenced corporate work! It's my first time working 8 hour days and it can be quite exhausting so I'm getting used to that. I only have classes on one day of the week but it's a full 7 hours without a break so I have to sneak in a quick lunch between sessions or my stomach will make disruptive grumbling noises.

Tried making white chocolate fondants with a spiced raspberry coulis. It oozed but the cake caved in a bit when I cut into it because I had trouble figuring out how long to bake them for.
