One more night...

You and I go rough...
I stopped using my head...
So I cross my heart and and I hope to die..
that i'll only stay with you one more night...


Today I decided that I wanted to get a pet. I so badly want a puppy, but I can't get one, due to my property not being fenced and the fact that I would not have much time to give it. I am not a huge fan of cats, lets just say, been there done that. So after two coffees, I was rearing to go get a fish. A fish of all things?!!! I know that they can be super boring, and not the most interesting of pets...but I just wanted to have something to look after. I headed to the Warehouse and picked up a ten dollar vase, and some glass stones for the bottom. I Then headed to the pet shop to find one of the smallest goldfish. When I was there I got some food and an oxygen shell, and that was me sorted. I got the guy to grab my little fish and got him all sealed up in a bag to take home. Poor little thing had a bumpy ride in the car :(. Once I got inside I sorted his new home, and adjusted the new water temperature for him so he wasn't shocked. I  decided to call him troutie. He didn't look very happy in his new tank, and sat down the bottom just staring at me, but now that he has adjusted to his new home he is swimming around. I was watching him before and I found it to be really relaxing. Yay for my new pet...if you can't get a puppy, settle for something completely unlike a puppy...and get a fish!!!

A simple vase can be used as a fish tank...this vase only cost $10

These blue glass pebbles only cost $4, also from the warehouse...and give a nice clean look to the tank.

Oxygen shell, only $2.50 from the pet shop.

 A fish is a really cheap pet to get..and can also make a great present...if the person doesn't hate fish
Troutie only cost...$5.50...the price of a coffee :)

Anita Nicole...

I was sent an email (thanks Anthony) with a link to check out a video I thought why not?!
I am soooo glad that I did!! Her beautiful voice is so relaxing, I just want to sit back, have a wine, and enjoy.
This lovely voice belongs to...Anita Nicole
Here is a little bit of information about this talented artist from her website at:

"The youngest of 3 children, Anita Nicole was born in London, England to parents of Jamaican, Grenadian and Carriacouan descent".

"Anita Nicole, after hearing a radio interview with Katie Melua on Robert Elm’s BBC London show, she decided to audition for The Brit School, the renowned performing arts school with an alumni list which reads like a whose who of current day pop music".

Here is her video out for this girl...I think she has some serious talent!


I was looking for a breath of life...

Another great the amazing Florence and the Machine
Its called "Breath of Life". It features on the new film, Snow White and the Huntsman
Turn it up and enJOY!!!

Kijono Brownies...

I love baking but I find it is only really special if you can share it with someone
This is my super simple brownie recipe..give it a try...

  • 100 grams of butter
  • 2/5 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 4 tablespoons of cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt

Melt butter slightly, and beat with sugar
add in the egg + essence
sift in flour, baking powder, cocoa
add salt
the mixture should be on the firm side, roll into balls, flatten, place on a tray...cook for 15mins on Bake 190 degrees Celsius.
Keep an eye on them so they don't burn
 (which I add because I didn't)

After they have cooled down, you can add some icing to the top of them and decorate.  Or you can have them plain. I like to add in white chocolate chips to make them extra sweet!

I don't know exactly how many biscuits could be made from the mix...because I eat the dough...bad habit. 
 Enjoy :)

OMC...How Bizarre

This is another goodie...

Slice of Heaven...

This has got to be one of most loved songs! I like to think of it as my theme song! Every time I hear it I just want to dance around....instant happy buzz. Reminds me of summer, fun and New Zealand..
and it always...always gets a little bum shimmy
