Inspiration No. 2, 2013 - Desert recipes, DIY Lampshade & More

With the recent, fabulous hot and sunny weather we've been having in Auckland I have to admit that I have been consuming vast amounts of ice cream to the extent I have actually put on a kilo in weight over the past few weeks. For the sake of myself, I probably should not be posting mouth watering recipes. However, I  couldn't resist sharing my latest find, a delicious recipe for Cranberry Almond swirl ice cream. Also discovered were some delicious chocolates and an unusual cookie recipe, add to this a few DIY ideas and a  contemporary  interior and you have this weeks inspiration post.
