Was anyone looking for a Fall dessert recipe? I was, especially since it's apple-picking season and I've been seeing apples practically everywhere. Also, not gonna lie, I LOVED doing that Harry Potter Food series last summer and have missed it so much! I had been considering making Queenie's Apple Strudel since then, especially because this treat has such a beautiful scene in the movie. I just wasn't sure if I was ready for such a baking challenge. But this time I decided to go for it anyway, and it turned out great! Also, I feel like it's perfect timing because apple strudel screams FALL to me.
Hola! Happy Friday from Mexico! I'm spending the day baking some cupcakes for our Fiesta. Tonight we celebrate Mexico's Independence Day and I'll always feel patriotic if it involves food and a party ;) I'll be sharing some snippets from the fiesta on my Instagram stories. Come check them out if you want to see…
I love trying out new hobbies! Maybe I'm not super talented at crafty things, but I always give it try. I think it's really rewarding when you make something with your own hands, from scratch! That's why I'm mostly attracted to creative, artsy activities, they make me feel like I accomplish things in my free time. Also, as bookworm, the first thing I do when I want to get into a new hobby is getting a book. Forget all those free sources on the internet, I want to BUY books, and supplies and maybe join a club... before even learning to do the thing. Well, while I was surfing Netgalley some weeks ago I noticed that I could request crafts books to review! And I thought 'Well, I already have a million hobbies and almost no time for them..." And then immediately ignored myself and got 3 books with activities I wanted to try.
Lettering with Purpose: Creative techniques and prompts for making meaningful, inspirational hand-lettered art
The first book I got was Lettering with Purpose, by Brittany Luiz. This one was by far my favorite of the 3! I got it because I had been seeing a lot of beautiful bullet journal pictures on Instagram with GORGEOUS titles, and whenever I tried to make my journal pretty... well, I had to cover the evidence of my failures with washi tape. I also wanted to learn hand-lettered art to add quotes to my watercolors, so all these things convinced to try it out.
