Coffee Cake and Self Love

I had an abundance of apples from last weeks ' farmer's market and was going again today so I wanted to at least make a dent in them.
It was cold and really crisp out this morning , well all day really so an Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake sounded appealing.

Rather than use the recommended Icing Sugar + warm water mix as a drizzle, I warmed up the last of a jar of President's Choice Dulce de Leche.

Sadly , I had to use a bit of flash when taking these pictures , as the original pictures I took at 11 am in natural brilliant light, were taken with a camera that had a memory card inserted incorrectly .Grr.

The recipe came from here and I cut it in half.

I used half white and half brown sugar , low calorie margarine /butter subsitute instead of butter, and dulce de leche ( caramel ) instead of iciing sugar nonsense.

30 Days of Self Love - Trusting Your Body

Day 3

In what are do you know you need to trust your body more ? How do you plan to do so today ?

I need to trust my body when it sends me hunger signals and signals of fatigue.
I often try to quiet my body or don't believe it when it tells me I am hunger when my mind believes it has not been enough time or completed enough activities to be hungry or tired.

Day 4

the love we have from others and how it can help us more fully grasp self-love as well.

I m not really sure how to answer this one because as much as I ve hated myself at times in my life I have never doubted that I am loved. I have not loved myself but I have never doubted the love of others.


  1. Hooray, fall! :D The self-love is very interesting and reminds me a lot of intuitive behavior. Listening and learning to trust yourself and what your body is telling you. :)

  2. Yum! anything apple-y is right up my ally!

  3. re: your Ugg dark brown leather clogs with sherpa lining are really nice looking and I could walk all day in them without dying to sit. Oh-and they have gotten wet in wintry stuff and not ruined! love uggs

  4. that apple goodness looks amazing! ALSO LOVE LOVE uggs, chapters, skinny lattes and poutine!

  5. Yum. I bet it was a good choice to top the cake with the dulche de leche!

    Also, I could use reminders to listen to my body more often. It's so nice when I do!
