Chocolate Monday

I think this chocolate made cup is a brilliant idea. Fifty points to the one who thought of this idea. And it makes the presentation all the more special. Don't you just want to get into the picture and dig in? Image found here: Imgfave.

Chocolate Mondays have been created to banish Monday Blues, or at least lessen the sting of a new working week.

Birthday Loot

This wonderful e-card from S.O.*

The flowers, junk food stash, mini skirt and iPANEMA slops from the S.O* And just in time for the upcoming summer!

This lovely chocolate spa set from S.O's sister and brother-in-law. It's got lip gloss, fizz ball, a candle, lotion and a bar of soap - all chocolate flavoured. And a great little book on chocolate too. 

A photo frame from a friend at work 

And as a surprising bonus, I won the AlexandraKate bag from a give-away that ran on Being Brazen's blog. She's got a new give-away already - so enter! 

And I baked these mini savoury muffins, egg free! :)

More than the gifts though, I appreciate every warm wish I received, every call, every message. It really made my day. A huge THANK YOU to everyone!

Into the land of fantasy

I've always been a great fan of stories with fantasy and magical elements such as Chronicles of Narnia, Peter Pan, The Lord of the Rings and so many more.  I have dozens of my own ideas dancing around in my head,  I am only too scared to type them out. The fear of mediocre work overwhelms me and it paralyses me into immobility. Regardless, there are others who think like me and this image proves that. It gives me a little courage to bring my magical creatures alive on paper and into the hearts and minds of readers.

Chocolate Monday

If some kind soul makes me a cake like this one fine day, they will have my eternal gratitude. Image taken from Imgfave.

P.S: To those who crave Chocolate Mondays, apologies for last Monday. My holiday took precedence over blogging.

Loving the African bush.

A few pics from my recent holiday. I am still basking in the after glow.

Chocolate Monday

OMG - words cannot express my excitement that there is a Lindt Chocolate Studio at Design Quarter in Johannesburg. And the cherry on the top is that we have just moved our work offices into Design Quarter! I am sure I will be very broke henceforth.
