Po - va - teet - sa

Would you ever had guessed a pronunciation of Po-va-teet-sa, from Povitica?? nah me either, but heck it doesn't matter how you pronounce it because its one hell of a tasty Eastern European treat either way! I've never been to Eastern Europe but if this is what I'm gonna get... it's moving up a few places on my endless "Places to Visit" list!

The Daring Bakers' October 2011 challenge was Povitica, hosted by Jenni of The Gingered Whisk. Povitica is a traditional Eastern European dessert bread that is as lovely to look at as it is to eat!

This bread has been more commonly named, by more common people as swirly bread! I think my attempt at Povitica shows you why:


Meet Onyx

This little/not-so-little-anymore kitten of ours is the worlds greatest procrastinabler (word??)
His favourite spot is pretty much anywhere that is in the way! 

...and its near impossible to chase that face away.


Watermelon Lemonade

How divinely refreshing does this look/sound?!

Can't think of a better day to have this... because its flipping 38 degrees outside!
Apparently we are experiencing a heat wave, think I'm gonna go get me some watermelon and make this tomorrow!

"Recipe" can be found here, and for another refreshing drink, try this Lemonade with Raspberry Ice Cubes.


Please Sir, can I have a Sir Juice

Have you noticed the new packaging/branding (insert correct lingo here if you're in the industry of such things) of Sir Juice?? its so awesome!

They seem to have flooded the shops and are definitely first choice when looking at the juice fridge! I was going to attempt some descriptions but I think these do all the necessary talking:

These are the flavours I've tried so far - delish! Its just good, wholesome, yum juice with some fun stories, clean design and rad illustrations!

Pictures are from here and you can read all about the rebranding at the Sir Juice site.


Dreamy Paris

If this doesn't make you want to explore Paris then I don't know what will...

Depeapa and Lucky Pony

This is one giveaway not to miss out on...

Depeapa is a spanish creative who spends her time making beauties of many shapes and sizes!
Go visit Angie over at Lucky Pony to enter to win one of Depeapa's amaze-balls items! (yes I just said amaze-balls).

Tough to choose but these would def be in my top three choices:

Careful though, its tempting to just order the lot online, lucky for me in this instance I'm still an untrustworthy student, with no solid salary, who isn't allowed a credit card in my name!

Photos are from the Depeapa etsy shop.



A truly inspired Cape Town based artist that goes by the name of Selah is worth noticing!

Not only is he extremely talented with an eye for graphic, geometric style illustration but spends most of his time "writing hope in the dust"...

In his words, Selah "draws symbols and texts in the margins of society: alleys, townships, street corners and rusting refuse - to write the story of their hope and bravery" - a beautiful description for beautiful work by a beautiful soul.

Joanna, over at the infamous A Cup of Jo, put up a post of Ivy covered houses! I LOVE ivy, well wall creepers of any kind really but these were just breathtaking so I reposted some of them from here to, well right here:
