World Chocolate Day, sometimes referred to as International Chocolate Day, or just Chocolate Day, is an annual celebration of chocolate, occurring globally on July 7, which some suggest to be the anniversary of the introduction of chocolate to Europe in 1550. The observance of World Chocolate Day dates back to 2009.
I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but I am not a natural chocolate person, I have to be in the mood of chocolate. Luckily, during Winter I do love my chocolate!
In fact, I think that I’ll make myself a little hot chocolate when I get home from work tonight. What is your favourite chocolate treat?
I just wanted to say that a)I don’t really understand the fascination with the Kardashians. I have never liked Kim, all the rest I have liked at some point or another, and then gone straight off them, usually within the some week. They are like those type of people that go one step forward, five back. b) I am honestly more shocked with Jordyn Woods actions than Tristian’s and I get why everyone is more angry with her than him. (Though Khloe better still kick him to the curb).
The whole point of this particular post though are serial cheaters, like Tristian, and why do people seem to love them just so much? I don’t even know how good of a basketball player his is, but considering you never hear about his on court performance, just all his off court drama, he can’t be THAT good, surely?
I also do not want to #FreeTristianThompson, he deserves to be there and stay there!
What is it with guys like Tristian Thompson, what do these women find so appealing? Are they just hoping that they’ll be the ones to tame him? And why aren’t these women using protection with him either? How many single mothers does he need to create until these women realise, he’s after one thing and one thing only? Why should he commit, when he clearly keeps getting away with it? I am finally glad that Khloe recognised that it is him, but the damage she’s done in the meantime. Would she really want her baby girl to go through what she’s going through, what he’s putting other “women” through? I wouldn’t.
What is it?

In regards to puzzle what’s your choice: jigsaw, crossword, word search, mazes, logic or numeric puzzles, something else, or nothing?
I actually enjoy all of them. Except for numeric puzzles, mainly because though Maths is not my best skill. =P
List at least five favorite treats and it doesn’t necessarily have to be food.
- Peppermint sticks. I just bought a few of them recently, I haven’t had them for years! They are fantastic!
- Is there anything better than a bath with nice smelling candles?
- A hot chocolate on a cold Winters night.
- Anything nacho cheese Doritos flavoured, you just have to be careful that they don’t have palm oil in them.
- New clean sheets on the bed =D
What is your favorite type of dog? (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal or character in a movie)
I have always wanted, but I know I would never ever get. Would be either a Rottweiler or a Husky, or even the two together! I love how they are just so cuddly and they have such a horrible reputation. I’m sensible enough to know that I could never control them though, I am far too laid back.
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.
These two ❤

…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)
- Place the popped popcorn and candy corn in a very large bowl (you’ll need plenty of room to stir popcorn).
- 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.
- Drizzle the melted white chocolate over the popcorn and candy corn and stir to coat each piece of popcorn.
- Pour the mixture over wax paper and spread into an even layer.
- Allow to cool in the fridge for at least 15-30 minutes.
- Break into pieces
