DIY Rustic Chocolate Truffles

30 November 2016



Come and make some chocolate truffles..faa laa laa laa laa, la la la laa!

Hey sweet friend! It has been ages since I have posted, I have tons of news which I promise I will get to in the weeks to come - but in the meantime, have a peek at my latest creation...


Rustic, decadent homemade truffles. Life is good. These require only three base ingredients, a couple of dustings or coatings and in a few easy steps you will be snacking on the gift you had planned to give to your BFF (so maybe you should make an extra batch for yourself!)


 These little balls of delight really are a breeze to make, no double boiler, no scary processes just heated milk, chopped chocolate and a melon baller (or ice cream scoop if you are fancy like that). In fact, these are so simple to make I whipped them up while recovering from knee surgery and hobbling around on crutches...



 I have decided to do something really brave and out of my comfort zone with this post. I have decided to film it and share as a free class on Skillshare. Eeeek. I am even getting get cold feet as I type. I wouldn't be at all offended is you just wanted to read this post and try these yummy treats without giving my class a quick watch, but I would SO appreciate if you would swing by and show your support. I need to get 25 enrollees and at least one premium referral, and while I haven't been around much and mentioning it here may seem iffy - I know this will help me keep my blog going. SO do pop by if you have a chance...

Free Printable - 2015 at a Glance

09 February 2015


Like I said, I am trying to make 2015 a bit of a better year as far as organization is concerned.

If there was ever a Procrastination Contest, I reckon I would be somewhere near the top of the log, I do everything around about me except for the task at hand. Then I stress the day before whatever-I-am-procrastinating-about is due. NOT cool. I am hoping that seeing all my tasks and projects in one place will keep me motivated so I don't wind up miserable every single time I have a project to do.

If you like this 2015 Year at a Glace Planner, you may want to have a peek at this 2015 Desk Planner - they go together like butter and sugar.

Do you have any tips and tricks that keep you motivated? I would LOVE to hear about them.

05 February 2015


Well hello there 2015. We are already in the *ahem* second month of the year and here I am making a year planner. Yep - I am super organised.

Anyhoo - if you are a bit of a loskop like me, and want to try  be a bit more on the ball, you can download my free printable year planner here. I printed mine out onto A3 light weight card (160g eltoro white to be exact .... because I'm fancy like that), but you can print it onto any paper you like. The offical size of the document is A4, but you can scale it to any size paper by clicking the [scale to fit paper] option in Adobe Reader.

Your welcome!

Enjoy.

P.s - perhaps if I can get my act together this year it may promise some sweets and treats. 

P.s.s - I have recently made the switch to Paleo style eating. Long story short I am trying with all my strength to combat my PCOS, so if you have any tips or good resources I would love it if you pointed me in the right direction.

Over and out.
