Day 199: Rolled Savoie Sponge with Blueberry Jam

The list this week from Meet Me At Mikes is 'The Best Snacks'. This list may not be unbaised given I am writing it in the middle of day one of the 'fasting' phase on my new 5:2 Diet (only allowed to have five hundred calories for the next two days). I have delayed and delayed my dinner for as long as I could all evening, but now the word 'snack' has started the rumbles. Better have another slug of the black sugarless coffee that is keeping everything at bay for the moment. What constitutes a snack? Are nachos a snack, for example? Or are they technically a meal. Do snacks have to be good for you? I'm thinking 'best' and 'good for you' are not always the same thing, so I'm going the former. Is it something that gets eaten only at eleven in the morning, three in the afternoon, or, four in the morning. I'm going to go with that last definition, although, being a shift worker, those could equally be known as breakfast, lunch and dinner.

* Nachos. I love nachos. Especially with frijoles and home made guacamole. Oh my gosh! My tummy is doing flips.

* Dips. Either with rice crackers or slices of capsicum, carrot and pear. I live spicy chilli ones, good hummus or odd flavours like beetroot and feta. Yum!

* Cake. Is cake a snack? If it is, I prefer a fruit or vegetable based one rather than chocolate. Lemon brulee, lemon meringue, flourless orange, carrot cake; something like that.

* Wasabi Peas. Such a strange, roller-coaster ride of a snack. It's a game of how much you can eat before the top of your head blows off. Which is usually not much.

* And my newest favourite snack—Rolled Savoy Sponge with Blueberry Jam. But technically that is just more cake.

  1. If I've over-indulged in chocolate and cheese and, say, chips, to make myself feel better the next day I do enjoy a lovely big dill pickle for a snack and pickle juice on my salads.

  2. Love this look! Obsessed with tulle!

Day 279: Entertainment and Wishes

I have brain-freeze from a three hours/three hours/ten hours-during-the-day sleeping pattern over the last three days twenty-four hour periods (that ole chestnut, again) and so even though it is not Sunday, I am getting in early and loosening the clenched up brain cells by cheating on topic ideas with Sunday Social. Their link actually goes up tommorrow so be sure to check back and see what everyone else had to say when Sunday eventually does roll around.

Q: What is currently on your wish list?

A: I need nothing. Nothing. So let's talk about want. I want to be able to find some amazing thrifted pieces on my upcoming (eight sleeps) trip to the States. Luck and fate will have a lot to do with it, but I would be very happy to find some, or all, of the following as well: a chambray shirt, a real bomber jacket (just got one that I had different ideas about when I bought it from SheInside—it's really just a fleece jacket), belts, a vintage leather jacket, more tutus, sumptuous f…

Wear 1: Dropped My Shopping.

Day One of three hundred and sixty-five pictures of Irene (left) and I (right) on the internet. We're using it as a way to develop or realise a fashion style, and as a friendly competition as to who wore it better? Like every journey or quest, this year's project will teach me a little, make me think a bit and lend me some laughs and enjoyment. I hope also to slowly make sure everything in my clothes closet and my shoe closet is utilised: even perhaps the bags and boxes of outrageous, or not, op-shopped (thrifted) items secreted in cupboards and under beds. Other hopes: fewer words (believe it or not), more pictures and time to catch up on unfinished blogs from the last three years!

I had my outfit planned, but as I dressed this morning for work, I, well, chickened out. I lost the cape and replaced it with a black cardigan. I thought my work colleagues would think I looked strange and slightly overdressed. Lesson One: I am not brave in person (posting a silly picture on the in…

Day 348: My Favourite Colour

Who: Melanie at Bag and Beret

What: The Travelling Yellow Skirt Freak Show

When: A while ago (have I told you trying to buy a house keeps getting in my way!)

Where: At, around and in the vicinity of ACCA

Why: Do you even have to ask?

Who Else: B—— for the photos, Melbourne Bike Share for the props (although I did pay for that, and we spent so long riding around getting moving pictures that they charged me again so I am not really sure why I am telling you about them: this isn't a plug, except that they are quite cool!)

What the ?: Sunshine incarnate in the form of a yellow skirt travels the world searching for women, bold and beautiful, who make it their own for a day, or a week and share their own take on its joyous light with everyone out there who thinks that being an exceptional individual with the daring and bravado to walk your own way, strut your own stuff and be your own you is a good thing! That's my take on it, but you can read the full story on the link to the skir…
