Christmas in November

It's only 40 days to Christmas?! What!? Where did 2013 go?!

Well it definitely went damn quick, if I must say. 
But with Christmas just round the corner it's getting me super excited. 

Just like any other little kid, I loved Christmas A LOT and not just for the gifts but it's the time for good food, good music and an all round good time spent with family and friends. One of my favourite things to do in December is to do some Christmas shopping and DIY GIFTS.

Finding some inspiration is super easy with Pinterest, and I've found some pretty cute and easy ideas to share!

1. DIY Mason Jar, with etched patterns
2. A small cooking/baking utensils set (not quite DIY)
3. 'For your mistletoes' Foot and nail treatment set
4. Small succulent plant, in cute tea cup/pot
5. DIY Chalkboard Mug

All found on pinterest.com 

Can't wait to post more christmas-related posts!

Tea Time

Don't we all love to get a little bit fancy, especially if we're talking high tea? Mini sandwiches, little tarts and chocolate macaroons? And of course the amazing choice of tea (thanks to our very own tea connoisseur)

One of my best friends, Paulina and I were bored one day in the holidays and only live a couple houses down from each other and decided to host a little high tea/brunch event for our other friends and it turned out to be such a cute little event! With the other girls' help it made it the perfect catch up during the holidays...

The brunch/high tea turned out to be such a fabulous idea, it has become an annual event for us.

We're nearing the end of the year which only means it's going to get warmer, and warmer - I mean it's only Spring and it's already insanely hot. Those in living in Sydney - ya feeling me?

That's why this post is a kick off to a new SPRING 13' SERIES that I'll be doing here on Organic Daisies! So I've just started the last term of Year 10 at school and everyday I come home and all I want to do is eat a tub of Ben and Jerry's and watch re-runs of That's So Raven and it sucks because I never actually get the chance to. For one, I've got so much work to do (ew), and if I ate ice cream everyday.. well that would be quite bad for me. So recently, I've been treating myself to some frozen yoghurt, that my mama bought me from the supermarket. I'm not really a big fan of the froyo you buy at the special froyo places, but this stuff is truly amazing.

This is a super simple and quick dessert! You'll need: 
♥  Frozen yoghurt or just normal yoghurt will do (I used Weis's Creamy Frozen Yoghurt)
♥  An normal mug/cup or bowl
♥  Cup of frozen raspberries
♥  Any choice of fresh berries - I used blueberries.
♥  Flaked almonds for a bit of crunch? - totally optional

OK so first step is to make the raspberry goodness! Measure out a small cup of the frozen raspberries, you can either let it defrost for 15-20 minutes but I usually can't wait that long so I just put the cup in the microwave for a minute or so till it's soft. Next, you just need to smoosh the berries till their all smooshed out and it's thick and liquidy.

You then want to find a bowl, or a cup/mug. Scoop out a few small scoops of the frozen yoghurt, plop all the raspberry "sauce" and finish it off with the fresh blueberries or whatever berries you chose! Enjoy! :)

 I hoped you enjoyed the first foodie post in the Spring 13' Series on Organic Daisies! If you do happen to try it out - I would love to see it!
