Bucket List!

How’s it shakin’ bacon?


I feel like everyone has some sort of bucket list, whether or not it’s intentional or not. We all want to do things and have experiences to look back on, right? So I thought why not make my own little official bucket list. A small one.


  1. Travel – I have a giant list of places I want to travel to. I think it probably deserves a post of it’s own. Haha!
  2. Live outside Ireland for at least one year
  3. Swim with dolphins
  4. Rock climbing – actual rock climbing
  5. Feed sharks
  6. Go skydiving – as terrifying as this sounds it’d really be quite the adventure (and a good story too!)
  7. Zip lining
  8. Go on a date
  9. Donate Clothing
  10. See a ‘play’ on Broadway
  11. Write & Publish a Novel
  12. Learn to use Chopsticks
  13. See a ballet
  14. Get a tattoo
  15. Participate in a 5K race
  16. Go to an aquarium
  17. Visit a pyramid
  18. Go on a Road Trip
  19. Be an extra in a movie
  20. Attend a Masquerade


Is any of this even achievable? I guess we’ll see! Any suggested additions? What’s on your bucket list?


Until next time, warm hugs!


Chocolate Mug Cake

21st July 2016

How’s it shakin’ bacon?

Today, I realized I haven’t posted a blog in close on two weeks. Shock, horror! *faints* and because I’ve been so missed on here I decided I’d say something. Today I decided I wanted to try something. The house is quiet – because everyone is out so I wanted to conduct an experiment. A food experiment! I did use a recipe and you can find it here if you want to try it out!


I looked up cake… because CAKE! Something I’ll enjoy, something I’ll want to eat again. I didn’t follow the recipe exactly, but was pretty close. It’s not too difficult… mix ingredients, put in mug, put in microwave… yay!

I used these:

Youll need

Side Note: I forgot to include the honey here. Also the recipe asks for Baking Soda (or was it powder?) what I had was out of date, so I didn’t use it.

Here’s what I did:

Step 1: Beat the Egg!

Step 1 Beat Egg

Step 2: Mash the Banana!

Step 2 Mash Banana


Step 3: Add the Cocoa Powder

Step 3 Add Cocoa Powder

I used Bournville drinking chocolate powder. I used 3 desert spoons of it, don’t think that’s what the recipe asked for but… close enough.


Step 4: Add the Flour!

Step 4 Add Flower

I think I used 2 desert spoons of flour, as opposed to the (I think) recommended 2 tablespoons


Step 5: Add the honey

Step 5 Add honey

I think I may have added 2 spoons (what size… I don’t know… desert spoons probably)


Step 6: Add Vanilla Extract

Step 6 Add Vanilla Extract

One whole cap full – how exciting!


Step 7: Add the milk and banana!

Step 7 add all ingrediengs together

Very nice!


All that’s left to do is mix and put it in the microwave!


And lastly, time to enjoy that cake!

Step 9 Enjoy!


When I tried it, it was a bit rubbery… I think that may be down to the banana. But I think apple sauce in place of the banana is meant to turn out better. Or something else entirely. Not sure how much to use, but next time I might try that. I’ll leave an update when I do though. Either way though, it’s a nice and quick idea for a desert and I think it’d be nice with ice cream or cream. Nice easy desert there.


Until next time, warm hugs!
