I love to bake. Its kind of a problem when I'm trying to be healthy so I try to limit the amount of baked goods I produce unless I have a specific event or something to take them to. That is with the exception of the Christmas season and the Easter season when it's totally valid to go a bit baking mad. This year I decided to try my hand at hot cross buns for the first time... but of course they had to be chocolate ones!

Earth Hour is a worldwide movement for the planet organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature . It's an annual event which encourages individuals, communities, households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for an hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. on the last Saturday in March, as a symbol for their commitment to the planet. It originated in Sydney and has grown to engage more than 7000 cities and towns worldwide. I got in on the action by having a lovely quiet Saturday night with the lights, TV and various other screens turned off (aside from the time its taking me to do this post!). Reading by candlelight/torchlight is a rather relaxing way to spend some time. Do you take part in this event in your cities?

these guys can be found all over the place catching some sun and being massive posers. They are kinda cute... It's been such a busy week - so very much looking forward to a break over the weekend!

PUBLIC2015 street art event. I will be off to Sydney for the start of it but I look forward to catching some artists at work when we get back... This very impressive very huge ROA piece is one of my favourites from last year's event. SO awesome.

In my coverage of the Sculptures by the Sea I've definitely kept my favourite until last. Childhood - Harbour by Chen Wenling is just so joyful! Look at that smile! I'm sorry that I've been pretty much absent this week - I've been knocked out with a truly gross cold/sinusitis/human snot machine bug all week. But I think I'm on the mend now so I'm looking forward to looking at all of your blogs over the weekend!

I feel like I'm spending forever on the Sculptures by the Sea... So I've decided to do a bit of a combo post with a number of different sculptures, and naturally I felt that three chubby figures would work well with each other. Two of these I think are adorable. One might give me nightmares. Guess which is which!

The House of Mirrors challenges this approach by disappearing into the natural landscape. Instead of blocking nature out, it welcomes and amplifies it. It is just one of the interactive sculptures featured in the sculptures by the sea with people being able to enter the 'hut' - its a little like being surrounded by very sandy funhouse mirrors in there though.

This was the same artist that designed one of my favourite pieces from last year - the giant goon bag, and this was again one of my favourites. I liked that wherever you were on this stretch of the beach there was this super shiny ball floating in view...
