Freak Shake

With the winters around for some time now  I always start craving for summer around this time! Although we know that we are gonna get a real good taste of summer! But still we humans!

To bring some of the summer back I treated myself to this freakshake

And loved it soo much I ended up using it for the CARS Birthday Party I recently held for my 3 year old!

Its a very simple very delicious very (may I say) gorgeous Freak Shake!!

It relies on one of the principle ingredients Nutella to derive its flavour and fun from.

Topppings!!! hmmmm well they vary!

I chose the toppings I relied on the most! a.k.a oreos, and maltesers and a chocolate straw!

Chalkboard Wall

 

As couple we often find polarized when it comes to making mutual decor decisions. So when my husband declared I was relieved when my husband said he wanted the living room feature wall to be chalkboard wall!!! Finallly!! I thought I wold never have one.

 

we have two feature walls in our living room + dinging room space. Me and my husband split it between each other. I was responsible for the dining room wall featured behind the frozen birthday party . And my husband was responsible for the tv display wall. For the dining room wall I was clear and concise it had to be stripes. The living room wall was open for experiment and what i had in mind was some maybe ombre or color block or CHALKBOARD! honestly i never thought my husband would pluck the nerve but he did!!

 

I have to admit i was pretty nervous when i first held up the chalk to the wall. to make things easier i broke it down into four sections.  I always loved the Dubai skyline and my husband wanted the algebra equation. The tv turned out to be our starting point becoz it had to be in the middle and to add frame to it was simply to make it a part of the feature wall. And MY feature wall had to have the typography or calligraphy whatever its called. I had soooo much fun fiddling around with chalk. The thing about chalk is that you even love the imperfections. 🙂
