Complete this sentence:  This sandwich could really use some …

fresh bread…lol…This was the first thing I thought of. Usually after you’ve that first sandwich, the rest of the pieces of bread start to go hard. You might get a couple of fresh slices and then that’s it,lol

What is your least favorite candy?

Anything that has “aniseed” flavoring in it. Oh dear god, it is gross! In all the years, as my taste buds have changed, it still is icky and yucky to this day!

What sign are you? Do you believe in astrology?

I am a Taurus ( I’ve had my Birthday already)

Too an extent I believe in my Astrology signs. I don’t really pay attention to the day to day Horoscopes, usually because they are so general. However, I’ve had my chart read into the different houses and those I will listen too. I’m actually planning on go to a Fair this weekend to re-center myself. I do believe in the generalized personalities, that’s because most of the other people I know who are Taurus. We are the same in some ways (even if they don’t want to admit it). The biggest trait is that we are stubborn, and we are. I’m a quiet person but if I believe in something or get an idea in my head, it’s hard to stop me. We are all HUGE procrastination stubborn Bulls!lol…Once we get going, you can’t stop us…Hence, the Bull, i think?

6 Things only a Taurus would Understand.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

I’m not sure if “laughing” at someone is the same thing? I can always guarantee though any time my Dad says he’s coming down, he doesn’t. Then I get a torrent of abusive text messages saying how I never go visit him (he lives over an hour away…by car…and I don’t drive, and he knew all this before he moved up there). It just makes me laugh, as he did it again today, it’s a joke in my family now. We’re all texting each other right now. How he can’t see that this is just more proof of how little he is there for us, I don’t know what else to tell you! The only different between now and when I was a teenager, we’d have to hear it from our Mum that he wasn’t coming, and no abusive text messages, but I am sure he just sent them to my Mum instead.

I may or may not be coming on social media today, as I expect the abuse any moment now.

I can appreciate it though, because it does make me laugh these days. I can appreciate alcohol much better and how I have to “watch it” when it come to myself.

Share Your World … Week 45

Describe your own outlook on life in seven words or less. (NOTE: does not have to be a sentence.)

Ideal realist. Goddess Warrior Sprite. Not Usual.

Where do you like to vacation?

I like to vacation somewhere, where it’s warm and I can just relax. Somewhere were all the spots to go are close and within reach, so i don’t have to go far,lol.

Candy factories (sweets or treats including chocolate) of the entire world have become one and will now be making only one kind of candy. Which kind, if you were calling the shots?

Oh wow! The power! The decisions! I would probably have to go with “Werther’s Original” candies. I have loved them my entire love. I’m not really a huge candy fan, but they are always up there!

Complete this sentence: Something that anyone can do that will guarantee my smile is… 

Just to be kind to me, genuinely kind. Not that whole I’m pretending to be kind to get something out of you. That and funny YouTube videos.

Are you a hugger or a non-hugger? 

Haha! I made a comment a few months ago about this very subject. I am hug-non-hugger,lol…I have an issue with hugging people mainly when I feel uncomfortable around them, or when they call you weird or something for not wanting to hug. I have some issues when being hugged mainly by the male gender after an incident with a male friend. It’s not something I feel comfortable with explaining and feel like I shouldn’t have too. If I don’t want to hug, I don’t want too.

What is your least favorite Candy?

Anything with that aniseed flavour, I can’t do it. It just tastes horrible to me. My tongue does not like it.

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “fun”?

Honestly, I think of my dog. She just loves us being around, and having “her family” around her and whenever we are around, she’s just fun. She even makes waking up pleasant, she’s so cute and wiggles a lot when we wake up. It’s hard not to feel like fun when something is just fun and lovely to be around.

List of Favorite Smells: What smells do you love? Whether it’s vanilla scented candles or the smell of coffee in the morning or the smell of a fresh spring rain…make a list of all the things you love for a little aromatherapy.

  • When you first open up that new jar of instant coffee, moccona coffee, indulgence…Bliss!
  • My dog sometimes has this popcorn smell when she’s been sleeping for a long time, mainly during Winter…Makes me hungry too,lol.
  • I have this candle that I’ve only burned a bit the once, I loved the smell so much and when I went back to get more there were none left! So I’ll probably never burn it again.
  • I love the smell of freshly mowed grass at the beginning of Spring, after Winter has started to die down.

Share Your World…Week 46

What type of popular candy you do not like to get?

I am actually not a big chocolate person, I have to actually be in the mood to want to eat it. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times people have bought me chocolate as a gift and it’s taken me months to eat it. I have to tell boyfriends to not buy me chocolates.

What do you feel is the most enjoyable way to spend $500? 

This one can depend on what’s going on my life at that time. If I am able to pay my bills and I’m alright with food and other essentials. It also depends on the time of year, at the moment for example, I might spend a couple of hundred on Christmas presents and save the rest (just in case). If that’s all good, I would probably go to my favourite online store Boohoo (Australia) and see what sales they have one (can’t help a good sale!). Definitely a good night out would be in order, or maybe a cheeky night away with the beau =D

Where do you eat breakfast?

If I happen to eat breakfast it usually at home sitting on the couch, probably watching cartoons to be honest,lol.

Would you rather ride one of the worlds longest zip lines or bungee jump one of the highest in the world? This will come with a 5-day all expense vacation.

I have always wanted to a try a zip line! I would definitely go with the zip line! They just look like so much fun.

Another year over…

…Well not exactly yet, except it’s no another 354 days until the next Halloween again … Already there’s Christmas every where, well actually I could have sworn that they started advertising it as early as September. We’re not big on Halloween here in Australia, I even bought treats for the trick and treaters…We had none, yeah I was disappointed…We have so much chocolate! I don’t even like chocolate that much,lol. (I was Miss Beetlejuice)

I hope that you all had a fun and, more importantly, safe Halloween…I know that America is where Halloween originated from, but I’m unsure as to what other countries may celebrate it. The other one that I am aware of is Day of the Dead, celebrated largely through Mexico.

So I thought that I’d share a few photos with you from my weekend. One of the foods that I made that was such a hit and I would definitely make it again is Candy Corn Popcorn…It is really sweet and extremely easy to make!

Recipe for Candycorn Popcorn

500 grams Candy Corn
225 grams white chocolate melts
1 Bag popped popcorn (flavour is up to you…I choose Johnnys Sweet &Salty)

  1. Place the popped popcorn and candy corn in a very large bowl (you’ll need plenty of room to stir popcorn).
  2. Melt the white chocolate melts in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring after each time, until melted. OR Heat a small saucepan of water to boil, bring down to a simmer, place a small glass bowl on top of saucepan (making sure that it doesn’t fall in) and place white chocolate into glass bowl, watching and stir as it melts.
  3. Drizzle the melted white chocolate over the popcorn and candy corn and stir to coat each piece of popcorn.
  4. Pour the mixture over wax paper and spread into an even layer.
  5. Allow to cool in the fridge for at least 15-30 minutes.
  6. Break into pieces

Halloweenie!

I am so happy that this Fridays edition lands on one of my favourite holidays! =D I’m not an American or Mexican, I am Australian so it’s not a “traditional” holiday here, but it grows every single year and I have never been happier about it. In fact this Friday night I am getting together with a few friends, dressing up and going out for the night. Guess who I am going as?…One Clue!

I haven’t got the full costume on here, but I will take an update on the full costume. I just don’t really have the time to do the full outfit today…but I promise a full picture! The dress is from Black Milk Clothing. I am now really in love with this store, I already bought a TARDIS and they have a new “wrapped” collection coming out for Christmas!

I’m just putting this video here to get myself in the mood…I hope it works for you too! =D
