hey lovelies :) :) how are you? i've been at my cottage for a bit and im just back to continue the job hunting. yeeeeiii fun fun.

breaky today (no photo though) was some oats with banana, shreddies, muesli, almonds, wheatgerm and other things...sort of a mash? that sounds really gross aha sorry :P

so cottage update: wow such a bad start to our first visit...the water pipes burst during the winter and we had no water for the first day and night and morning...and i left my meds which are for allergies since for some reason im allergic to my cottage aha and i flare up and can hardly breathe and itch...anywho it was nice to get away though :) :) :) not too many pics from there as my battery was being no bread photo :(

in the car snack...OH EM GEE this was orgasmic. seriously. okay i'll admit i was obsessed with the idea of larabars from bloggers but when i tried one i wasn't totally amazed...but this changed my mind holy crumb it legit tastes like banana know if you bake a bread and the middle is like a bit raw...thats what it tastes like!!!!! i can't find ginger snap i think its called it sounds yum but there are only a few flavours here...maybe since its canada? its so sad :( anyone else (Canadian) having trouble finding most flavours??

mmmm strawbs used for dessert, lunch, breaky...along with this:

which had so much dried fruit, natural, almonds, hazelnuts yummm :)

and we were opening the cottage so lots of cleaning, which was difficult when we had no water for the first day :( and mice had been in there in the winter so i was spazzing because i thought we'd get sick from mice poop or something. it was nice to be outside though, and since i'm allergic to something inside i spent a lot of time outdoors and it was really sunny. cool but sunny.

of course cottage-attire is super stylin like such...

aha i thought you'd enjoy this :D

kidding thats awful, anywho the bread was yummm and i think i'll post the recipe its from Anne Lindsay's Lighthearted Cooking, she has many but this one is called "Lighthearted Everyday Cooking" and its from 1991...almost as old as me :)

it's called Cinnamon Carrot Bread and she says it's "packed with flavor as well as nutrients...great as an afternoon snack or with a packed lunch" also for dessert or breaky or whatnot...

- 1 cup raisins
- 3/4 c flour
-3/4 c whole wheat flour (i usually use all w-w but you can do what you like)
- 2 tsp of cinnamon (or more if you like...what i do)
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tsp each baking soda and baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 egg
- 3 tbsp vegetable oil
- 3/4 c yogurt
- 1/2 c packed brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 c finely shredded carrot

- 1 tbsp rolled oats + 1 tbsp oat bran
Pour boiling water over raisins and let stand for 5 min; drain thoroughly. Combine flours, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, bsoda and bpowder, salt and raisins and set aside. In large bowl beat egg until fluffy, beat in oil. Mix in yogurt, sugar and vanilla; stir in carrot. Add flour mixture and stir till just combined. Pour onto 8X4 inch (or 1.5 L) loaf-pan. Mix topping together and put on top. Bake at 350 F oven for 50-55 min.

today i must continue searching for a job, figure out my courses for the summer and for my last year/next year of uni...ahh thats so scary! i can't believe im turning 21 in june. ew ew. i hate it. i cried last year when i left the teenage years aha so this year will be worse.

okay well i have to go but ill see you all later and hope your weekends were fun and that your weeks are starting out well :)

saturday, a dress i bought at u.o and my lovely towel on my hair :(

lots of love


  1. AHHH I love strawberries! They're so sweet and delicious and just strawberry-y!

    and larabars too! My favorite ones are the Jocolat ones, but of the few regular one's I've tried, I like Cashew Cookie and Apple Pie. However, this is likely to change. =]

    lol and your breakfast "mash" actually doesn't sound disgusting. One of my favorite snacks is a "Mash" of plain greek yogurt, Honey Bunches of Oats and Almond butter and I just MELT every time I eat it. =]

    And that bread looks so delicious! I don't know why, but I've never thought of putting carrot in a bread before, which is strange becasue I've had carrot cake and morning glory muffins before.

    Have a wonderful evening!


  2. heyy :) yea its yum together and theres lots of cinnamon :P xox
