A trail of Inspiration.

My starting point for this trail of inspiration not more than 24hours ago lead me onto many winding paths of colour, inspiration and acknowledgement of pure talent.

One of the things on my ‘to do’ list was that for this month I would stay focused and blog a post every Saturday on Beverly’s Pink Saturday for the month of October as a reminder of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Take a couple of ‘clicks’ backwards, and although I’m not always finding time to post and create, within the solitude of my bedroom of an evening, I visit bogging friends, leave comments and join in the circle of friendship, that I so love to be a part of.

Here’s my winding trail:

I started with a visit to Celia at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial, where she had her  monthly feature look at what’s ‘In my Kitchen’, Turkish ceramics, wild ginger drinks,and vegetarian paella to name a few, take a look and maybe join in. Sometimes when you visit friends, you spend a little extra time reading everyones comments…(or is it just me)…

So, this is how I made a new connection to ChopinandMysaucepan, where I discovered they were one of ten bloggers from around the world in the Royal Selangor Jellyriffic Competition .How exciting and a lot of hard work! The competition is that each of the ten bloggers post a recipe each day for 30 days in the month of October 2011 to raise awareness and support for breast cancer.

Check out some of their creations:Day #15 Biriyani rice with cashew nuts and raisins, Day#11 Green and Gold kiwifruit pavlova, Day#7 Antipasto pyramid with rocket salad. Just amazing…inspirational.

So this then led me to find out more about the Royal Selangor Jellyriffic Competition. ‘Get Your Jelly On’ Challenge is where the selected 10 bloggers come up with an exciting new way to use the Royal Selangor pewter jelly mould. It’s designed by Nick Munro. Proceeds from the sale of this jelly mould go towards the Breast Cancer Welfare Association. You can purchase one here

Continuing on…my winding path led me to visit all the other contestants the list can be found here

Where I found one of my favourite contestants Billy Law from Masterchef Australia 2011, who also was participating in this 30 day challenge.Billy’s Blog A Table For Two features best eats in Sydney and around the world. And oooh you should see some of his great desserts in this challenge. Visit Billy’s blog here.

This then led me back to the Pink thing for today’s post…now I’ve mentioned that I’m also a little bit of a pinning diva. It’s also a little ‘out of control’ hip hop up there pinning Queen…diva! See my boards and follow them here at Pinterest.

Ok, so now I’ve finally arrived at all those pretty pink things and my visual boards that I created way up there at the beginning. I so love this dress…

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

  2. What yummy pinkness all the way around, Yvette. Your pink photos say it all down to the pink books and roses. I think my favorite are the pink flower-icing cookies. They look so pretty as well as delicious.
