August Calendar

Hey everyone

Hope you are all well, another month has flown by which means its time for the August calendar. I have decided to make an iPad/ tablet/ phone friendly format calendar that you can set as your lock screen. You can simply download the pdf and put test over the top with you plans for the month. I thought it would be a great idea as it will save paper and I feel it will keep me more organised. Another option would be to set it as your computer back ground.

Timor Leste

Hey everyone

Today is going to be a bit of a different kind of post. I have been wanting to do a post like this for a while now and have recently come back from a trip to Timor Leste so I thought it would be the perfect time. I would like to share my recent thoughts and would love for you to comment at the end of the post your thoughts as well, as I feel it will be really interesting to hear from you all.

So it all began when I was listening to a talk by Sam Clear, he spoke about his experiences walking around parts of the world for unity. His presentation really opened my eyes as we know that there is hurt and trouble in the world that goes on everyday, but we don’t always see what is being done to stop it. It made me realise that we actually need to do something about it, even if it begins with our own communities. Just by being nicer or helping someone out you are making the world a tiny bit better. I really hope that one day there will be no more wars and I believe that if we all hope for the same thing that one day it will become a reality. I would also recommend if you somehow ever get the opportunity to attend a presentation by Sam Clear go as I found it really inspirational.

Then only recently I came back from a trip to Timor Leste. Whilst I was over there I learnt how easily we can all get caught up in our day to day lives and forget how lucky we are. The Timorese are recovering from many years of devastation rebuilding schools, houses and other infrastructures. I realised how much I have and how fortunate I am to have a life like my own. I live in a country where there is no wars and there has never been a devastating disaster that has ever directly effected my life but these people have.

I realised how lucky I am to have the house that I do and the resources around me. I have a bedroom with a bed, a wardrobe full of clothes, a heater, a fan. I have a kitchen, living room, dining room. I have clean running water that comes from a tap when I turn it on. I have realised that I should appreciate how easy my life is compared to others.

Whilst I was over there I met a girl who said when she was at school she would have to travel 7km in 1 hour so she basically had to run to school. I realised how much I take going to school and getting an education for granted. Not everyone in the world has the same opportunities to get an education as I do yet many children complain about going to school and others who do not have the opportunity’s only wish is to get an education. I visited an orphanage which is where the photo above is form. The girls there, are there because their parents died or are too poor to take care of them. It was devastating to see that parents are so poor that they are unable to provide and care for their own children.

I think the main message that I can take from the trip is that I can make a difference in the world and should appreciate what I have. The trip has made me realise how waste full I am and how much stuff I have, even though I do love going shopping and buying new things. Next time I go shopping I will think twice whether I actually need it and use recyclable bags. I have realised how much waste I make, plastic bags, wrappers, packaging and how it impacts the world, seeing plastic washes up onto their beaches and impact others environments. On the trip I also did not use my phone or any technology for 11 days and it felt amazing, we have the need to always be connected and know what is going on in other peoples lives, but it felt so good to not worry about what other people were doing and to be living in the present.

I have realised the importance of helping others because if we all shared the love and resources around we have the power to change the world.

If we are not the ones who change the world then who will?

Thank you so much for reading. If you read all of it good job, I feel like I rambled on and it has become a massive post. I have also been watching a few documentaries lately and if you are interested I would recommend watching  Minimalism which is on Netflix.

Also if you ever get the opportunity like I have or are thinking about going on a charitable or life changing experience I would highly recommend it as it truly was an amazing experience that I will never forget.

comment below as I would love to know your thoughts on this kind of subject

Thanks again xxx

 

Crepe Cake

Hi lovelys

I think we have all seen these crepe cakes online somewhere so I decided to give it a go. I would just like to tell you if you would like to give it a go yourself leave about 4 hours to make it.

unnamed-1

What you will need

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2½ cups plain flour roughly
  • 2½ cups milk roughly
  • 1 large block of chocolate

Firstly you will need to make the crepes. In a bowl use a whisk to combine your eggs, salt and sugar. The gradually add your milk and plain flour alternating between the two about ½ – 1 cup at a time, and whisk each part until smooth. Then once you are done the crepe batter should be a thin smooth consistency, I would aim for the consistency of cream.

Next melt your chocolate, I used the microwave on power 50% for about 2 minutes but this will just depend on the power of your microwave. Keep an eye on it as you don’t want it to burn. Alternatively you could do this over a double boiler.

 

Once your chocolate is melted it is time to begin to cook the crepes. Using a crepe pan and a ladle make one crepe at a time and place it onto a plate layering each with a coat of melted chocolate. I would recommend having something to watch or do whilst doing this as it does take a while for all the crepes to cook.

Then once you have finished making the crepes you could either leave it how it is or using a knife cut around the edge to make it look smoother. Then coat the crepe cake with the remaining melted chocolate and its time to dig in.

I hope you have enjoyed this post, if any of you give it a go I would love to see how yours turn out by tagging me in Instagram @awhiterabbitblog. If you don’t plan on making it then I hope I have made you hungry haha.

Thanks so much for reading xoxox

 

 

Current Purchases Haul

Hi Everyone

Hope you have had a great day, today I am sharing with you some of the recent purchases I have made that I have been loving over autumn so far.

I absolutely love autumn because it is the perfect weather to chuck on a pair of boots and jeans but it is the right weather to wear a t-shirt  with a coat.

First up is this coat from Kmart Aus for only $35. It has a lovely fur hood that is filed with white fluff. I love that this jacket has a smooth inside so when it starts getting colder I could wear knits underneath.

Next is these Glamorous Petite Patchwork Distressed Boyfriend Jeans from ASOS. I absolutely love the deign of them with the darker denim and the light denim with the rips. I also love the distressed look and I feel they go really well with a cropped tee.  My only advise would be to order a couple sizes larger if you are not a petite person as they are quite small.

And last but not least my favourite item by far has got to be these Timberland boots that I purchased from Platypus. I am absolutely in love with them and wear them every opportunity I get. To protect them for getting dirty I have also sprayed them with Crep Protect. I don’t really know if it does anything but it is better to be safe then sorry.

I hope you have all enjoyed this post and let me know what are some of you autumn staples or current purchase are, I would love to know.

Hope you enjoyed

Pumpkin and Eggplant Quinoa Salad

Hi Everyone

Hope you are all feeling good. Today I am going to share with you this pumpkin and eggplant quinoa salad. I normally don’t like these kinds of “healthy” salads but I absolutely love this one and I hope you do too.

DSCF6160.JPG

What you will need:

  • ½ Butternut pumpkin
  • ½ Eggplant
  • 200g fetta
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • oil
  • salt and pepper
  • rocket leaves
  • balsamic salad dressing

Firstly you will need to dice your pumpkin and eggplant into small cubes, then place them on a lined tray and drizzle with oil, salt and pepper. Then place in oven at 210ºc until they are roasted and softened.

While your vegetables are roasting start to make the quinoa, I used 1 cup quinoa to 2 parts water and then placed it into the microwave for 10 minutes or until softened. Then let it cool. Then dice your feta, I used danish feta.

Once your vegetables are roasted (the above picture they are not roasted) in a bowl place in your washed rocket leaves, quinoa, then add in the roasted vegetables and feta and lightly toss.

When your ready to eat it, I dressed it with balsamic salad dressing and it is amazing. I hope you have enjoyed this post and if you remake it I would love to know what you think.

Hope you all have a lovely week
