introducing my new friend

You wake up after a night of partying because, well, you were welcoming 2016 the night before.

tiramisu

For those of you that know me, you will already know that my favourite dessert is tiramisu! I think it’s a super versatile dessert that can satisfy any sweet craving.

The only way to capture the evergreen beauty around the guesthouse we were staying at was to take a long walkabout into the neighbouring forest, literally right under our noses.
