This year I came across the term Content Creator, and I feel that…

Do you suffer from FOMO?


Watching my Snapchat feed, the green monster inside me began to make an appearance as I saw, what seemed like, EVERYONE at a much coveted event. I tapped through short clips of customised cupcakes, gorgeous selfies and perfect poses. Damn it, why wasn’t I invited? Everyone looks like they are having SO much fun.

Baking Lamingtons…


Lamingtons were an absolute must at every Eid (Islamic religious celebration) back when I was living with my parents in England. My mother would put me and my sister to work once she had baked the cake (from scratch, unlike me!) and whilst one of us coated the cake in chocolate, the other would roll it in dessicated coconut.
