Of Chocolates & Succulent

Apart from office, most days you will find me in Ikea or Bunnings. Sometimes I feel like I live there. By now I know every aisle, every section, every nook and corner. There's not sofa that I haven't sat on and not a table I didn't knock. Not that I am an expert or anything, just call it the Sheldon effect. And since I got all my priorities right, of all the things I bought a Succulent :P 

It's my dream to set up a Terrarium and Succulent garden, add in a Bonsai too. This is going to be fun since my knowledge of gardening is absolutely limited.Do let me know if you have any previous experience in planting these.

I spent the Sunday morning with my husband setting up a 3 drawer shelf for the cupboard. By midday I was bored and wandered around the house to find my favourite stuffs, which mostly consists of cream and cocoa, while my husband continued the job, sitting amidst panels and screws and bolts. When Lindt has 50% sale going on, this is what you buy!!

I made the awesome'st creamiest hot chocolate with milk and chocolates :D

I am trying not to think about calories and missed workouts!! Shhhh no negative thoughts... just a cup of rich chocolate :D


  1. I grow several succulents in my home (two types of aloe vera, Thanksgiving cactus) and another couple (mainly euphorbias) outside. Had a terrarium once for several years, but finally killed it.

  2. Yummy and beautiful Easter. Nothing like coffee with the sweets:)

  3. Lol.. I hope you enjoyed the hot chocolate. It looks delicious.

  4. Thanks for hot coffee and chocolates. Me too avoiding negative thoughts in my mind .... :P

  7. The coffee and coffee cup .. lovely both. I want a bonsai too. Are there links on how to go about it? I couldnt find much.

  8. Beautiful blog. I love the green background. It is a cheerful shade.
