My Favourite Pins This Week
Have you guys had the amazing combination that is avocado and chocolate? If you haven’t tried it before, I know it sounds strange but it is utterly incredible. This dark chocolate and avocado mouse is 8 ingredients chucked into a food processor, and then chilled in bowls. How easy is that? The avocado is undetectable in the recipe, but leads a really buttery, creamy texture to the mouse. And of course, then you are getting all the goodness of avocado, so you might as well have another helping, right? Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
These chicken fajita lunch bowls are perfect for work day lunches or busy weekday dinners. Just look at the gorgeous colours, and it’s full of flavour. This is definitely one to try, and when you make a big batch, you’ve got lunches (or more dinners) for the week ahead! It keeps in the fridge for up to 4 days. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
How beautiful are these popsicles? They are made by layering smoothies, so they are as good for you as they are gorgeous. And each layer is a new flavour! Pinterest link is here, and the original how to post is here. You were going to dust off your popsicle molds this weekend anyway, weren’t you?
It’s been a while since I’ve seen an adorable pom pom craft, but I love these alphabet pom poms. Wouldn’t they be so fun to spell out words for banners, or someone’s name, or even just for kids to play with. They don’t look easy, but for the right person this would be totally worth it.

This is a wonderful 2- minute video on how to draw a rose. This is part of a 30 day challenge for the month of May of drawing a different flower each day. A fun idea if you are looking to improve your skills! Pinterest link is here, and the original post is here.
My cold from last weekend had me down for 4 days, which was no fun! I’m at that gross-but-functional stage now. The weather is getting warmer, and I’m looking forward to a weekend i the sunshine! What about you guys, what are you up to?
