What I've been up to!

Hello there! Do you remember me?
Its been a long... long time since I my last post. Honestly, I'm running out of blogging juice. I genuinely lost all creativity for blogging, which is why this post will be about what I've been up to, rather than a beauty product review. If you have any suggestions, ideas or requests, feel free to leave a comment or email me!

So two weeks ago I started a hospitality course. It was quite scary at first (as I don't mingle with new people very well) but luckily I was doing it with another friend of mine. I learnt a lot and totally give props ('take my hat off' as some may say) to those that work in the hospitality field and alike. Do not underestimate a career that you haven't done personally. A few days ago I had placement in a bar and although my only job was to put drinking glasses into the dishwasher and polish glasses, it was genuinely tiring. 

I learnt how to make espressos using a legit coffee machine and other coffee drinks, trying out coffee art for the first time, and my first true insight to cocktails. I'm not a big alcohol drinker mainly because I get affected by alcohol quite quickly (super low alcohol tolerance... which sucks) but learning about alcohol was interesting and very new to me. 

The last drink was an original (?) made by me and my friend, and called it 'strawberries and cream'. It's a good drink for those who are just starting to have alcohol.

Strawberries and Cream
- 15ml simple syrup (50:50 water and sugar)
- 30ml vodka
- 3 strawberries
- 2 teaspoons of cream
- ice
Blend it all together and its done!
- strawberry
- white chocolate powder rimming the glass

If you live in Melbourne and want to know more about the course visit koopstes.com.au. It's a government funded course so it's free to do.
