Lately on Instagram…

Hey guys, for those of you who aren’t following me on Instagram (I am @swah) I have created a new blog category to check out my phone pics here. Generally lots of food and cats.

♥ Cooking up a (healthy) storm

I have been focusing on improving my healthy cooking skills (can’t live on cupcakes all the time) and have been thoroughly enjoying trying out Michelle Bridges recipes. 2 of my favs are the steak and mushrooms dish and her beef noodle soup. Yum!

♥ Delicious Italian desserts

To balance out all that healthy eating I have been enjoying some delightful Italian sweets lately. On the left is a Semifreddo from Caffe Sicilia (amazingly decadent, I could only finish half!) and on the right is choc fudge peanut butter gelato from Via Del Corso

♥ Trying to take some “me time”

I’ve been feeling a little overwhelmed lately with too much work and an overly enthusiastic social life so I have been trying to force myself to regularly take some me time. Nothing like reading in the bath or watching the sunset to instantly feel better!

♥ Chopping my hair off

I have been toying with the idea of cutting 1/2 my hair off for a while… it was getting very long and harder to deal with and I am lazy! So now I am rocking a blunt fringe and a “lob” (long bob). Much easier to blow dry and style!

♥ Saying goodbye

And finally on a sad note I had to say goodbye to my beloved childhood dog Bessie last week. She was very old (16 1/2 years) and fortunately had a very quiet and peaceful death. I miss her so much. She was such a crazy sweetheart!
