The Ultimate Rabbit Hole #39

The Ultimate Rabbit Hole 39

Hello friends! Oreo, Bubbles and I would like to welcome you to another Satur-yay down the Rabbit Hole. Did you have a wonderful week? Mine was so busy, I just don’t know how I ever had the time to go to work!

Today is World Mental Health Day. This year is all about making a mental health promise and the tag line is “my mental health begins with me.” How true is that? This post sums up everything just right.

October 10 is a busy day. Not only is it World Mental Health Day, it’s also National Angel Food Cake Day! Yes, that’s a thing. I’ve actually never made Angel Food Cake, have you? I love the look of this one though, pretty in pink. You’re welcome!

My mum just bought her first bundt tin at the tender age of 72 and now she wants to make up for lost baking time with these 50 Bundt Pan Recipes. I can’t help but notice that there are so many different bundt pan designs and I really want to have them all. I just need to find room to store them first!

I like to eat healthy but I would call salad more an acquaintance than a friend, so if you’re like me, check out these 41 healthy things that are not salad. Winning!

Did you see these pictures of people from around the world next to the amount of food they eat every day? I found the photos to be fascinating and I was left with an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for being able to choose what food to eat and that there’s always enough of it.

Despite living a relative stone’s throw from Italy for most of my life, I’ve only been once, and that was when I was living in Australia. I’m desperate to explore more of Italy and see, do and eat all of the things. Tagging along on Beths’ adventures made me even more desperate, as if I needed another 13 reasons to love Italy! Now, pass the Aperol Spritz, please!

While we’re on the subject of travelling, here’s 12 things not to do when you travel.

I can’t justify paying a cleaner now I’m a stay-at-home person but keeping the place show home tidy is not as easy as it looks. I’m going to have to take a leaf out of the book of the people whose homes are always clean. Here’s how they do it.

Did you know it was National Fitness Week? If you don’t have time to get to the gym there are heaps of ways to get fit offline by getting online, and here are four of the best.

Do you have goals? I still haven’t worked out what mine are but that’s mostly because I’m so enjoying what’s happening now. I love the idea of Goal-free Living, it’s like a breath of fresh air!

I discovered the Tutu Project this week and what a treasure it was. It’s a story about love, the way in which from bad things, good things can happen, and of course, a pink tutu. Well worth a watch!

So tell me, what’s on your agenda this weekend? Have you got a Bundt pan? What do you bake in yours? What would be the start attraction on your daily plate? What’s top of your Places-To-Go list? Have you got any tips on how to keep my home tidy? Do you have goals or are you a bit of a goal dodger like me?  

Every Saturday morning, we will open up the rabbit hole link up for bloggers to add their link list posts or even just their favourite post (if you are not of the link list kind) for the week.  Do try and pop along to say howdee to some of  the other lovely linkers. Link up here, over at Calm to Conniption, A Little Part of the World or My2Morrows. It doesn’t matter where you add your link because it will appear on all four blogs, as if by magic!  The link up will stay open until midnight the following Monday.

Be a smarty and join this linky party!

  • So many great links! Seeing the amount and type of food various people around world eat was fascinating. It brought home how much processed food our family eats, something I have been trying to lessen over recent times.

    • We’ve been trying to cut back on processed food too. I try to make everything from scratch apart from tinned stuff and condiments. I’m such a control freak, I love to know exactly what I’m eating! Have a lovely weekend x

  • I like the tutu project story, it’s beautiful 🙂

    I really shouldn’t come to your blog before breakfast, it just makes me hungry – and not for my boring toast, but for a delicious dessert, ha! I had to go out the other week (maybe not last week, think it was the week before…) and get pancakes for national pancake day!

    • How lovely is the Tutu project? I’m pleased you like it too! I’ve just read a post about Freak Shakes and now I can’t think about anything else! My rice cake with peanut butter just isn’t cutting it! Good on you for getting into the swing of things and celebrating National Pancake Day in the best way, with pancakes! Hope you have an ace weekend xx

  • I’ve never made a bundt cake either, but I might give it a go when we get into our new kitchen.
    Today I’m off to the op shop and hoping my papier mâché boobs will dry before tonight as we are going as Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers to a rock trivia night for my sons school.
    Wish me luck.
    Have a great weekend lovely lady xx

    • OMG! I can’t wait to see the papier mache boobs! I had to read that line twice! The house is looking totes amazeballs – I think I am as excited as you about moving in. You can christen your new kitchen with a bundt cake, how delicious would that be! Enjoy trivia and don’t forget the photie! xx

  • Loved seeing what people around the world eat each day! I would love to lay out my consumption and see, as I am quite the snacker and I think it would look very random haha. Off to the farmers markets this morning and then for a drive in the country to a gorgeous little cottage for lunch, right at the base of Mt Warning. Cannot wait! Have a fab one x

    • I’d love to lay all my food out too – that would make a great Instagram challenge, wouldn’t it? Your Satur-yay sounds just glorious! Especially the part about the cottage, how cute! Enjoy xx

  • Oh my… So much goodness here Sammie! belles post on goals was such a good read and has really got me thinking! Loved Jades fitness suggestions and off to check them out… But first I’m off to buy a bundt cake pan. oMG!!

    • Everyone needs a bundt pan in their life. I’ve even got a mini bundt tray. I hunted all over town for it (no joke) and I am itching to use it! Bon weekend x

  • Lilly Mary

    Oh the Tutu Project – Love is a powerful tool xx Some brilliant links in this rabbit hole – I enjoyed the tumble…

    • The Tutu Project just makes my heart happy. Pleased you enjoyed your sojourn down the Rabbit Hole, hope you enjoy your weekend just as much!

  • Love the tutu project. I love bundt tine cakes they are awesome. I have a favourite donna Hay recipe I love. I will share it on the blog. Happy Weekend. V x

    • Bundt cakes are my favourite – I love the Donna Hay Lemon Yoghurt Cake – you can find the Thermomix and traditional recipe on the blog. Is that your favourite too? Hope you have a wonderful weekend x

    What a great round up – so much variety covered! I wish I had lived in Europe. The options for weekend getaways are pretty amazing! How has your first Jamtastic week gone? 😉

    • We certainly had our fair share of weekend getaways when we were in the Mother Country, we went to Krakow, Prague, Paris, Barcelona, Berlin and Brussels to name but a few. The European getaways are one of the few things I miss about the mother country! Jamberry is jamtastic – I’ve got 3 people on my team and the party is in full swing. And you?

      • Simplify.Create

        Kraków is a favourite. Won’t get there next year but back to plenty of other parts of Poland. Woo hoo, 3 recruits. Go you! I have 2 but about 4 seriously considering it 🙂 managed to get my TruShine for $40 with party credits along with 4 wraps. Hurry up happy mail!

        • Yes, we spent our first wedding anniversary in Krakow – we loved it! Wow, you’re going great guns! My kit never arrived so it got hand delivered by Brick, Sarah and Peter from US office! I was totes startstruck. They brought me a Trushine kit too which was ah-mazing! I’ve been doing a wrap/gel combo and it’s just the monkeys nuts. I can’t wait to hit the shop with my party credits, I have a list as long as my arm!

            What an awesome way to turn around some bad luck. So cool!

  • It was so interesting to see those pictures of people from around the world next to the amount of food they eat every day. Thanks for hosting the link up and I hope you have an awesome weekend.

    • The food around the world pictures were fascinating, weren’t they? And a little bit confronting too! Hope you have a lovely weekend x

  • I too have loved following Beth’s Italian holiday. In fact I enjoy others’ trips quite a bit. it’s unlikely I will travel OS again (only did west coast US and Hawaii 10 years ago) but I am cool with that notion too. I think letting the cleaner go can be both a good and a bad thing. I know I found it that way. Cheers for a super weekend. Actually coming to Sydney for 3 nights this week and catching up with the fam while hub attends a Uni res course in Parra. Denyse x

    • Well, I’m going to focus on the good bits of the DIY cleaning, but I’m sure the novelty will wear off soon! Have fun in Sydney – it’s looking sensational at the moment! Sunshine suits this city! xx

  • Italy will always be on my places to go list – always!

  • I was able to go to Italy several years ago. I loved it! And that post definitely makes me want to go back. 🙂 The article on on how to keep you house clean was so good. I do a a few of those things but I would love to work them all into my routine. 🙂

  • merilyn

    always lots of good blogs and lovely ideas to peruse thanks sam!
    just think about all of that incidental exercise you will be getting cleaning your house!!!;))
    I was a very enthusiastic follower of beth’s trip as I’ve been to that region!
    deja vu is good for you/me! enjoy your weekend hun!
    love m:)X

    • Oh, lucky you going to Italy, so really Beth was following in your footsteps! Of course, I always wear my fitbit when I do the housework because every calorie I kill counts! Hope your weekend was absolutely fabulous x

  • How rad are the portraits of people with their daily food intake. So interesting! I hope you had a wonderful weekend lady. xx

  • I don’t have a Bundt pan but I think I need one. My mum makes the most delicious chocolate vanilla marble cake in hers. It’s a recipe handed down from my Oma and was one of my favourites. I really should make it for my girls 🙂 Oh and how lovely and amazing is that Tutu project!

    • Isn’t the Tutu project ace? You should totally make your Oma’s cake and I don’t know why but somehow I think cakes taste better in a bundt!

  • Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Seeing how much people eat all over the world is so interesting! I’ve seen similar ones to that series but not that exact one. Hehe I’d be in trouble if anyone ever looked at my food for a day!
