NEW VIDEO: Halloween – Party hacks and snacks

Well hello there,

I’ve been fiddling around with the idea of a video segment to this here blog for a while now. Having produced a very silly introduction video a few weeks ago which, quite frankly, I was not too impressed with – I found myself shoving that dream onto the back-burner in a hurry and instead staring at my computer screen for a few weeks hoping that inspiration would give me a smack across the face. (Hoorah. So productive.)

Lo and behold. I have decided not to over-think it (a God-awful habit of mine),  just freaking post something, and see what happens.

My skillzzz (yes, with a “z”) are completely lacking (production-wise) but since I love themed parties (and Halloween, in particular) I thought I’d start just off with a simple idea – and hopefully I will receive only constructive crit. (Who am I kidding? – Trolls! On your mark…)

I would be eternally grateful if you could “like” my video if you think I should do more stuff like this and/or subscribe to my channel if you’d like to be notified every time I post something. 🙂

Drop me a comment and let a gal know what you think.

Bisous!

 PS: Kind of a fitting post for a channel launch – seeing as it is my 100th post! 😀

These are the people I wish papercuts upon

The sting is just enough to be irritating, but not painful enough to induce guilt… Therefore I am wishing nothing more than a papercut upon the following social media offenders:

1. People who use hashtags on Facebook.

Why why why why? Hashtags belong on Twitter. THEY LOOK IDIOTIC ON FACEBOOK. My goodness.

2. People who post Google images on Instagram.

The point of using Instagram filters, is to make your own personal photography pretty – like an old-school polaroid camera. NOT to post “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” quotes and other stuff of that gosh-awful nature.

3. People who write one status across four Twitter posts.

If it can’t be said in one or maybe two twitter posts, please please please take it to a blog, or a facebook status. (Or like, write a novel or something.) Characters are limited for a reason! (My sanity)

4. People who repin on Pinterest – without changing the caption.

Why do you re-pin and not change the original “This is for Stacey!” caption? Do you even know a Stacey?!

5. People who write 1st world pity posts (With absolutely no irony.)

“My life is in shambles… First, I couldn’t find my car keys, then I got a flat tire when I rode over a dog, and now my Robbie Williams – Millenium single is stuck in the cd player.”

I don’t care. I don’t think anyone else does. BLOCK BLOCK BLOCK.

6. People who use 200 hashtags per post

#I #dont #see #any #space #left #for #an #actual #message #Why #dont #you #delete #some #effing #hashtags #?

7. Internet trolls.

Those people who think they can be irritating/mean/insensitive/stupid because they are sitting behind a keyboard. PAPERCUTS TO ALL OF YOU.

8. People who call Pinterest, PIN-INTEREST.

I could die, seriously. It’s wordplay people – a word that COMBINES both PIN and INTEREST.

PINTEREST!

PINTEREST!

Rant over.

You may go back to your daily chores. ie: Procrastination.

Bisous!

Zozette: The Return

Good God, it has been a long time since I’ve blogged! I truly do apologize. I don’t know how many times I’ve sat down to have a chat, only to be yanked out of my beautiful blogging bubble. Unfortunately, such is life.

However, I AM BACK – and I know people say this all the time, but I’m really dang-well set on blogging more often. I’ve got a few new ideas I want to share, and so, well… prepare yourself.

In the meantime – watch this fantastically animated classic, in celebration of my triumphant (ish) return!

Hoo-rah!

Bisous!

Too good to “bee” true cupcakes

Hi all,
I know it’s been a ridiculously long time since I last posted, but my life has been jam-packed with busy-ness recently. I have multiple blog-posts crammed in my brain on a daily basis, but hardly any time to get them up on the blog-osphere.

However, I’ve had this one  up my sleeve for some time now, and I thought the Spring air deserved a little baking recipe to kick it into gear.

My very own creation, and might I add – deeeee-frikken-licious. Nut and cinnamon honeyed buttermilk cakes, topped with honeyed cream cheese frosting! Yum!

Give it a try and let me know how you like it. Click on the link below to download a pdf of the recipe.
