About Me

Hey all,
My name's Bec and thanks for stopping by!
I am a uni student in Brisbane, Australia. I used to live in Far North Queensland but I moved away to go to university. I think it's pretty hard to sum up everything about me in a few words but I'll try really hard.

I love my family and my friends very much, and I admire loyalty and honesty and bravery.

I could not live without books or tv - I live for stories.

I would love to spend the rest of my life in a quiet little room writing and venturing outside to play tennis or bake something.

I stress easily and I try to do everything 100 per cent, all the time.

When I'm stressed I run or bake.

I absolutely love bread, potatoes, pasta and rich, dark chocolate.

But I also love tennis, swimming and running (well, that's a love/hate relationship).

I cannot chose between Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic. Don't ask me to. Actually, don't talk about tennis. I won't stop talking if we start. 

I collect shoes like other people drink water - I need a closet for them alone.

I'm Italian and Dutch and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I know an awful lot about boybands. And musicals. But I love musicals. I'm a sucker for dramatic things.

If I could live anywhere, it would be England. Or maybe Italy.

I would love to go and teach English overseas in third world countries when I finish uni, just until I figure out what I want to do (I study journalism but I don't want to be a serious journalist - I want to write about books and movies and fashion and travel).

I hate airplanes but love airports.

I hate water and watery foods.

I love summer. Probably becuase it's three months of no work.

My proudest moment was moving 22 hours away from home when I was 17.

I was going to be a lawyer.

I want to do something to help people.

But for now, I'm just going to stick to baking and cooking. 

I'm still new at this but trying hard to get better. I love to bake mostly, but I try to make it healthy (and not black bean brownie healthy, regular healthy). I did the whole 'freshman 15' thing when I first moved out of home and now I have discovered a love of exercise and healthy food. So what you'll find here is a whole range of recipes - from decadent to nutritious. I love good food. So that is what I have tried to create for you. Everything here is super simple, the pictures are somewhat pretty and it's all cheap and relatively healthy. But I do love a good brownie.
