New Year, New Resolutions And Nutella Cupcakes

The new year is about hope and taking the opportunity to evaluate and plan. I've been overwhelming myself with all the things I want to change & do but mainly I'm excited about what 2012 will bring. To some, 2012 just another year but for others it is the dawn of a new physical and spiritual transformation for the world. I'm in need of some transformation for sure so I am definitely claiming that for myself!

As a general rule, I believe that if you want to change something there's no time like today, but I do think a new year is a pretty perfect time to set goals. So in no particular order here are a few of the tangible things that I'd like to tick off this year;

- Consistent exercise (3 times per week)
- Learn a new skill every month (contenders include web page building & sewing)
- Go to Europe once a quarter and France at least twice
- Get a bike
- Improve my photography
- Play my piano
- Blog, blog and more blogging :)

I actually have a kazillion things I'd like to do, some deep and meaningful (like find inner peace) & others less so (do more piping icing), but I don't want to bore you. Instead I will talk a bit about the tasty cupcakes on display here. They are Chocolate and Nutella flavoured, (click here for a link to the recipe) and being that I love all things chocolate, these cuties are no exception. They are tasty and perfect for bringing to New Years Eve parties to wow your host!

Have fun, however you choose to bring in the New Year, and let me know what your resolutions are. Also don't forget to enter the giveaway for a chance to win some cake pops! Click here for more details.

Peace & Love

  1. Hi Bailey Ana,

    This has been bugging me ever since I commented on your last post. I could have sworn I knew you from somewhere as your face is so familiar. Sorry to declare this on your blog, but it just dawned on me after reading through previous posts, that your face is so familiar because I saw you on the homebirth diaries giving birth to your second son. I was pregnant with my first at the time. It's insane, such a small world. I'm from Essex too. I'm sure I'll be requesting your cake baking services soon, especially since we'll be christening our son in the next few months. Happy New Year!!

  2. Oh they look divine!

  3. @Natalie B - Haha, yes that was me & that programme seems to be destined to follow me forever... It seemed like such a good idea at the time :) Happy New Year to you & yours!
