This & that

Even though I was very busy last week I was still able to sit down and do some crafting. I think it's only good for you to take the time to do something you really enjoy & I think it's important to be creative, especially if you're studying/working with something that's not that creative... I managed to do a new jewellery, another earring since I don't have the material to do anything else. But a friend of mine showed me a lovely little shop that has lots and lots of beads and material, and I'm going back there next week to do some serious shopping :-)



As you probably can see in the photo, I've read other things than lawbooks. I found Vogue Living Australia at the store & even though a lot of the design is too modern for my taste, I still enjoyed reading it... It's such a relaxing feeling to have new magazine to read in one hand and a latte in the other.

Speaking of Australia (long shot, I know), Kali has opened her own shop, Poppy lane. I'm so excited for you Kali! Congrats to the opening :-)

Finally, I remembered that I'm not the only one who loves guacamole here & I've been meaning to share a new (delicious) recipe that I tried last weekend.
Guacamole
Prep. time: 30 minutes
Servings: 6 (not sure about that though. I served it to 4 guacamole-lovers and by the end of the evening, the bowl was empty...)
3 avocados
1 tomato
1 or 2 finely chopped red chili peppers
1 small finely chopped red onion
1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander (I used dry coriander)
1 tablespoon lime juice
2 table spoons turkish yoghurt
1 or 2 drops of Tabasco sauce
1. Divide each avocado in half and take away the peel and the seed. Chop the avocado and mash it with a fork.
2. Divide the tomato and use a spoon to take out the seed, then through it away. Chop the rest of the tomato and mix it with the avocado.
3. Add chili peppers, red onion, coriander, lime, turkish yoghurt and Tabasco sauce.
4. Serve at once or cover the bowl with some plastic film and keep it in the fridge up to 2 hours.

Your earrings are lovely. Simple and pretty.
Have you seen the new French General book? I think you will like it a lot.

It is really good! It's chunky, just the way I like it ;-)

Your earrings look great! I've just discovered that a lot of Etsy sellers have beads that are very inexpensive. I'm not sure about shipping, of course, but Etsy sellers are everywhere. :)

I love the feeling of a magazine in one hand and a hot drink (mmm a latte sounds so yummy right now) in the other.

I hope you're enjoying your weekend.
