Beautiful Athens

read the post

When I was planning the hit list for our whirlwind European trip, Greece was always on the agenda, and more importantly Santorini. Athens was always be going to be our first pitstop and so it was worth at least a good look around the city. While I took upon some of my friend's advice to not spend too much time in Athens because there wasn't much to do, we were pleasantly surprised that we were able to fill in the day and night we had reserved, with shopping around and seeing the main sights. Aside from the graffiti, it's not a bad little city!

The Beauty Sponge - The Beauty Blender Pro

read the post
Makeup sponges to me would either be that triangular sponge that makeup artist used to dab dab dab around your nose or that little white cushiony number that would turn beige/orange over time, nestled in your makeup compact, one which I would be first to toss into the bin preferring to use a makeup brush instead. What a snob!

Lemon Meringue Cupcakes

read the post
Lemon-y sponge cupcake with a lemon curd core, and a torched meringue top. That sounds rather pretty and delicious doesn't it?
That's exactly what these are!
When Jase was eating the leftover cupcakes he looked at the halves that I gave him and he gasped and said "what's this on the inside?"..."is that really lemon meringue stuff on the inside?"... "doesn't  lemon meringue stuff have like a pie crust? what? is this a cake?". Ah bless him. Yes, lemon meringue should be a tart or a pie, BUT, lemon meringue cupcakes came into this world many moons ago, and while I was originally hoping to make a lemon meringue layer cake, making cupcakes was far easier.  Here is how I made mine!

Fornillo Beach

read the post
We didn't stay near the main beach of Positano, but instead, decided to stay at Hotel Vittoria where Fornillo Beach lay right below, only 200 odd stairs below in fact! To our surprise a cute little cafe called Pupetto was right there and OMG...served the biggest wads of mozzarella in their Caprese salad. I. WAS. IN. FRICKIN'. HEAVEN. Oh gosh it makes me want to cry a little just even thinking about that fresh, squeaky clean, moreish salad.
I definitely think Jase and I would go back to Positano in a heart beat as we only had 3 days there and missed out on seeing Capri nearby.
The pebbly beach was not pleasant to walk barefoot on, but this place just exudes the best sunny memories for Jase and I. Makeup free, hair tossled in sea water, carefree and happy, this is how life should be ey?

Enjoy the heavy download of photos :)
