Today remind yourself: I show my happiness.
She knows me so well. Bwhaha! Sorry if you feel short changed - I'm working on a lot more descriptive ones for the next couple of weeks and they're taking me a while -__-

Those are some Twisted Buns...
Apple and Carrot Muffins
3 medium eggs
3/4 cup/180ml vegetable oil
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
1.5 cup/190g of flour
1.25 cup/225g sugar (I used golden caster sugar)
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1.5 teaspoon baking powder
0.5 teaspoon salt
0.5 teaspoon cinnamon
1.5 cups/225g sultanas/raisins
2 cups/4 medium carrots, grated
2 apples, grated or chopped
Lemon juice (optional)
Quick note: If you chop the apples before they're needed, they may go brown. To prevent this, you can put the in the fridge or squeeze some lemon juice over them. I don't think it'll affect the taste too much.
Preheat your oven to 200 Degrees Celsius/400 Degrees Fahrenheit/Gas Mark 6
Don't let your friends steal your last muffin, no matter how much carrot they grated.

Monday Mission - Shake it up!
"Whoever is happy will make others happy, too" - Mark Twain
The first Monday mission. And I think it’s pretty easy. I know a lot of people have good intentions towards others but have a hard time showing it, because they're scared of rejection and mockery. So, today it's going to be a bit selfish - and it's all about you. And your power anthems.
Also, there are a lot of people who claim not to be able to sing or dance. Think of it as a kind of practise. Just because you (think you) aren't good at something doesn't mean you shouldn't do it. I mean, I still blog.
And Wagner still sings....
Just enjoy yourself!
Make a playlist of 7 songs that you absolutely cannot sit down to – songs that just make you want to get up and dance and/or sing to the lyrics as loud and gleefully as you can. And then try and play one of them everyday this week. If you’ve got neighbours you're trying to be considerate of, use earphones. If you have children, or younger siblings, or just someone else in your house (who you would gladly karaoke with) get them to join in, because enthusiasm is infectious!
A Simple Thing:
My list is:
‘Jai Ho (You are my Destiny)’ - Pussy Cat Dolls
‘Déjà vu’ - Beyoncé feat Jay-Z
‘Walk Away’ - Kelly Clarkson
‘Hips Don’t Lie’ - Shakira
‘Dance with Somebody’ - Whitney Houston
Barbara Streisand’ – Duck Sauce
‘All Star’ – Smash Mouth
