Okay, so first of all I just wanna apologize for not turning up last Sunday!

I have been so effing busy all damn week! I honestly cannot believe that Sunday has arrived already!

πŸ™

So now that I am back, lemme actually talk about what i have been upto this week!

I had college! Yeah, unfortunately, I have to attend college religiously and practically SLEEP through the lecture!

I mean, I have no clue why, but I really thought studying mass media would be fun!

Turns out IT IS NOT!

Someone please get me my fly swatter, I have a mosquito to kill!

I have two real amazing friends in my class. Trust me, I have no clue what I would’ve done without them. By now I’d be deffo sitting in my room swatting mosquitoes all day long. Yes… I AM SERIOUS! I would have taken a drop! Hands down!

Anyways, now’s not the time to talk about depressing things!

πŸ˜‰

besides, I am really excited about something that I am gonna soon take up!

Being the jobless girl that I am, I was experimenting with macarons this week. I am not the kinda girl who’d spend her entire allowance on almond flour. i mean seriously, how much does almond flour cost anyway?

Umm…helloooo??? Do we even get it in supermarkets here in India?

NOPE!!! A BIG FAT NOPE!Β 

I wasn’t gonna break a sweat over this. I needed to find another alternative!

And I did! Here’s the pink lemonade macaron with the secret ingredient.

Also, the big news!

I am gonna soon start taking orders for baking! YEP,,,!!!

You know what? If you walk into an Indian patisserie you will not find too many varieties to begin with. They are delish, don’t get me wrong. But you know, I really wanna introduce Navi Mumbaikars to something with a more gourmet edge.

So I have been looking up the net all week for some cute packaging ideas!

Look what I’ve found!

Who knew brown paper bag could look THIS appealing! {Click Here}

Ahhhh so much inspiration everywhere~

So yes, I’m hoping to begin once Eid is done. Yep, that way I can have the kitchen all to myself!

For now….
